    That was my first WOD, after Elements. I scaled it pretty heavily and still posted a pretty slow time. Looking forward to killing it tomorrow, as Rx’d.

  • LOVE LINK NUMBER ONE! (of course) – it’s the Ministry of SILLY Walks, though not funny ones. Very important bureaucratic distinction. 😉

  • Hari

    Great job with last night’s dinner! Thanks.

  • Mike

    11:46 rx’d – 31 seconds better than last time

  • Kirk

    Holy Hannah, Torch!
    That is 1:19 faster than last time you did this – and I thought last time was fast…
    Nice work, buddy.

  • jim

    ….reminder for tomorrow’s movie night at Sam’s Apartment
    Hey everyone, were having a lil get together at GoodSam’s (970 Kent ave in Brooklyn) this Sunday to watch ‘Every Second Counts’ (The CF Movie) its by suggested donation of 10$, which will go to the CFNYC Affiliate cup fund. Also its BYOB, so bring drinks and bring any and all kinds of food. She has a quite accommodating kitchen. Also its kind of a big space and kind of a huge screen so hope to see many of you make it out there.
    Movie to start around 730p

    Fun WOD. Thanks Torch!

  • Hari

    I’m begining to suspect that there is less gravity in Brooklyn, even though BBB is on the ground floor and thus closer to the center of the earth.

  • kj

    Did my burpees on the beach 🙂
    Thanks for organizing last night, Jeff! I had a blast.
    I shall make this madness up on Tuesday.

  • Hari

    (68,54), (44,34)

  • Rory

    20 minutes and change as Rx’d. +Tabata pushups as a finisher.
    The last couple rounds of lunges were the worst‚Äîthey stayed the same length while the “rest” in between got shorter and shorter. Brutal.
    Can’t exactly say I killed it, but I definitely feel like I’ve come a long way since Elements 2 months ago. Still a long way to go, which is good.

  • Rory

    Hari- I am an occasional 6 o’clocker and I do follow the blog. For me personally, if you have to cancel the 6 am class it’s not the end of the world‚Äî7 am fits my schedule too, it’s just a little tighter.

  • Hari

    Final Schedule Update for Next Week AM:
    All classes are covered. Nothing will be canceled.
    Mon, Wed, Fri (6:00 AM, 7:00 AM, 8:00 AM WOD’s): Jeff
    Tues, Thur (6:00 AM WOD, 7:00 AM Elements, 8:00 AM): Torch
    Tues, Thur (7:00 AM WOD, 8:00 AM) Max
    Thank you, Jeff, Max, Torch

  • Davi

    Yowza – 4 minutes slower (18:52) than last time (14:45), HOWEVER:
    I completed all pullups chest-to-bar (and then some, like the ones I didn’t get chest-to-bar). My first time aiming for that standard.
    Also, my brain was a bit scrambled and I ended up skipping one set of sit-ups and adding them onto another.
    Hand-tearing remains my limiting factor in WODs like this one. I really have to psych myself back on the bar when it gets all fleshy. Ripped AGAIN even though I shaved my hands yesterday.

  • Davi

    Oh, right…also did this:
    tabata HSPUs with the band assist (best set 12, worst 3) and grip cashouts with the heaviest KBs in the box (farmer’s walks and just standing around).

  • Aaron

    16:49 with small band for pull-ups.
    This is almost 7 minutes quicker than my previous time when I failed to complete all the pull-ups assisted (with a bigger band too) and had to finish rounds 15 – 6 off with jumping pull-ups. Crossfit is so much fun. Thanks to everyone in BK for the encouragement!
