A happy (belated) birthday to Josh!

Friday, July 16th was CFNYC co-founder/co-owner Josh Newman‘s birthday and I didn’t post about it because I didn’t realize it was his birthday until just now! (Sorry, Josh!) So go wish Josh a happy birthday at the Saturday classes he’s teaching, or here on the blog at least!

    9:45 (55#, subbed pull-up/transition/purple band ring dip for each MU)
    I had a training session with Brian D on snatches a few weeks ago and it really helped me with this WOD – I’d definitely recommend him if you’re looking to improve your O-lifts.

    happy bday, josh.
    watching the Games webcast… this individual women’s heat alone has Clever, Bergeron, Smith, Iceland Annie, Jessica Pamanian…astounding to watch them.

  • Simon P

    53# bar, muscle substitute routine which includes: chest to bar dead hang pull ups, muscle up transition from a crouch, and ring dips (using the thin black band)
    Got few decent ones in. My damn wrist STILL hurts, preventing me from going heavier. Maybe that’s a good thing though, as I’m probably better off focusing on form right now on these technical movements.
    Thanks for the instruction Josh, good to see you, and happy birthday!

    Happy Birthday, Josh!
