    Please put me down for the 6:45 WOD tomorrow, I’m having problems with my bank account so my card isn’t working ( for auto-billing). I will pay my membership for this month before class. -Joseph

    I just want to clarify, I asked to be sighned up for
    Today’s WOD, because I can’t sign onto Mind-body, ( because of a problem with my banking account). Looking forward to pressing,pushing and jerking some weight later on today. -Joseph B

    Just to clarify, I meant please put me down for today’s 6:45 WOD. I can’t wait to push and jerk some
    weight. – Joseph B.

    It was good to be back at the box last night. Liked the workout.
    Also enjoyed the push up article today, which was much more positive than I anticipated, but did have some comedic relief like the following:
    “As someone who runs about 5 miles a day six times a week….I had prepared myself well for outrunning an attacker or climbing several flights of stairs if the elevator broke, not that I’d hope to do either of those things.”
    If you think running distance has prepared you to outrun an attacker or climb stairs, you are delusional. Running 5 miles will not win you a 100 yard sprint nor will it haul your ass up stairs.

    I just wanted to thank you guys and gals for the thought-involking articles that you post every day. I follow the main page WOD, but I log onto your website every day to see what gems you have culled from the net and posted at the bottom of the page. Good luck in your endeavors.

  • ditto mr. breslin’s comment… it’s appreciated. an ongoing education…

    “Our new Healthy Choices Texas-Style Low-Fat Yogurt is so thick it takes a 200-pound coal miner five whole minutes to mix it all up.”
    Love it.

    Who wants to do vertical sit-ups with me?

  • Moon

    Press 115 – 120 – 125 – 125 – 126(F)
    Push 125 – 130 – 135 – 145 – 150
    Jerk 135 – 145 – 145 – 150 – 155
    Need to work on foot stability on the Push Jerks. Gotta say – this is a goodly amount more tiring and muscle fatiguing than I expected.
    Thanks to Justin and Paul for the advice.
    Thanks to Leslie for keeping us humble. 🙂

  • I can’t make it to the running seminar tonight but I’ll be around the Box tomorrow or Thursday to attempt vertical situps.

    Probably not gonna make it to the BOX this weekend, BUT I will be out in Manhattan Saturday evening, going to a friend’s bday party down at Rodeo Bar, 27th and 3rd I believe. Next weekend I plan on making the Saturday morning workout (noon still going on?).
    I did Barbara last night, and it was my first real PT since 26 March. I am hurting something good today.
    Hope everyone is doing well.

  • Interesting. I was perusing T-nation today and their “Shoulder Blaster Workout!” looks mysteriously like our WOD (1C, about 1/2 down the page):

  • AllisonNYC

    Press: 85, 90, 92, 95, 97
    Push Press: 100, 105, 110, 115, 117
    Push Jerk: 117, 120, 125 x 2
    Stopped. I couldn’t drop the weight so I didn’t push it
    I decided to do the Total that I missed since I already had the press done:
    Press: 97 (PR by 7#)
    Back Squat: 200, 205, 210 (PR by 5#)
    Deaslift: 230, 235, 240
    Total: 547

    still at work-no running for me either Carlos. There was an explosion in our building today and they evacuated us. The whole place smelled like burning rubber. which kind of smells liek that super elastic bubble plastic toy we used to play with. charming. spent about 45 minutes outside in the freezing cold. So it was sort of like the running class except I got no exercise and didn’t learn anything. Just that I was freezing.

  • Justin

    Made it to lunch time… Unfortunately now my back really isn’t cooperating and not able to run.
    Press: 145, 150, 155, 160, 165(f)
    Push Press: 150, 155, 160, 175, 185
    Push Jerk: 155, 165, 175, 185, 195

    Aww look at Margie in that picture!
    Margie is my favorite girl CrossFitter (next to Annie, Eva and Nicole)
    I would say I’m Margies biggest fan but David and Shane think she’s pretty great too

  • Hari

    (5 x 1 x 120), (5 x 3 x 130), (5 x 5 x 135)

  • Joseph_B

    Push Press:135-125-125-125-125
    Push Jerk: 135, horrible form, worked from with Coach P, and then Tyler Durden but I feel like an idiot because I just wasn’t getting it. I need to drill this in my warm-Up every day.
    Finished with CF WUx3 and stretch.

    175 Tie PR
    180 Fail
    180 Fail
    Push Press:
    200 (1,F,F)
    Push Jerk: Probably should have started lighter and gone up

  • Kurt

    Press: 125 (tie PR), failed at 130 but was really close
    Push Press: 140 (PR by 11)
    Push Jerk: 125 (tie PR), put up 4 reps of 130 but failed at the last one. So close.
