    Also, if there’s a Saturday morning WOD at the Brooklyn Black Box, that would be great… no pressure though. I’m going out of town in the afternoon so it would be nice to get a workout in before I leave.

  • B Maher

    I’d be in for BBB on Saturday if it was early.

  • Hari

    I theory, we might–might!–be able to run an 8:00 AM WOD on Saturday and/or a 5:00 PM WOD in Manhattan, before and/or after the Mobility Cert. How many people would attend either one?

  • Carlos

    I’m still interested in doing the Saturday WOD at BBB. (I don’t know whether those of us who posted that on Monday are supposed to post it again today, but in case the answer is yes, there it is.) Thank you.

  • Adam R

    I would do an 8am WOD in Manhattan on Saturday.

  • Tony

    I’d be up for a Sunday afternoon/evening WOD.

    I would be in for the 8am WOD in Manhattan.

  • Mike S

    14:21 BB WOD scaled deadlifts to 155# to work on form

  • Mike S

    also, I would be up for an 8am WOD on saturday; would be fun to do before Kelly’s cert.

  • jim

    cf virtuosity held a level 1 cert this past weekend at their box. subsequently, they offered open gym hours on saturday and sunday evening immediately after the conclusion of the certification. many attended. i liked their thought process…

    Oh, sorry I think I read Hari’s post wrong – if there is an 8am Manhattan WOD on Saturday, I’d rather go there since I live two blocks away. Thanks!

  • james keller

  • Mike K

    Started doing the total, but only got through the back squats and some press warmups before I ran out of time. Took longer to warm up than I expected.
    Got 335 easily and missed 350 2x. PR is 345. Need to focus on sitting back more
