    • reisbaron

      Thankfully I was able to get a snapshot of you during the WOD…

      • Guest

        you have a picture? please send to me!

      • BenS

      • michael saterman

    I think I’m going to call this workout “Deadly Boxes.”

    Who needs a named WOD every week when the new training nets results like these? Not me! I have to give mad props to the new programming. My strength has increased about 15-18% in the past 3 months.

    • BenS

      You are killing it lately. What are you on??

      • michael saterman

        I am trying to catch up to you!

        Seriously, this new programming has immensely increased my power. My snatch is still crappy though 🙂

        • Jana B.

          Luckily we have snatch practice tomorrow!!

  • Brad Hoover

    5:19 (155lb). I cannot recall doing a WOD for time that included deadlifts this year. Tough. Awesome work anyone that Rx’d this.

    • Jana B.


      • Brad Hoover

        Ah I must have missed it. My last Diane was Sept 8.

  • Kristin

    26th Street AM Results

  • AndyK

    5:45 Rx. That one was tough, 225 is heavy and has a long way to go for us +6-footers

    • Anthony

      6:22 Rx–Agreed Andy–a long way indeed–surprising how quickly 225 became heavy even more surprising how tough the box jumps became. I tried keeping your pace, but, you were motoring. Great work…..Coach Nick– 6am wont be the same without you!!

      • AndyK

        Tony, it got heavy at #2. I almost did not make it to the top of the box on my first jump, that would not have been pretty

  • jsg

    6:13 @ 185#

  • reisbaron

    6:55 RX’d – classic 26th St. morning class. Lots of encouragement all around. Solid Friday morning at the Black Box.

  • Davidslifer

    6:49 RX

  • stevenrerickson

    Nice job to everyone who went heavy today. End of a long week for me so I went light and regretted it afterward, should have done 40#s more.
    4:42 @135.
    Great job Tony and Andy, and yes coach has Nick will be greatly missed at 6 am. Thanks for all the mornings of positivity and encouragement Nick!

    • Anthony

      Way to rock and roll Steven—us old farts have to try and keep up!!

      • stevenrerickson

        Tony- you aren’t keeping up, you are leading my friend! Way to rock the big numbers!

  • KevinBoul

    5:50 @ 225# Quite enjoyable. broke it up 11/10 5/5/5 5/4

  • Amber Rodriguez

    6:05, 123#
    Contemplated going RX on the weight, but woke up with my lower back acting kinda wonky. On Deadlift Day. Figures.

    Grateful for that, since I’m feeling ok now. Going a tiny bit lighter maintained an element of much-needed conditioning practice. Thanks to Coach Sara for pointing that out, and making me feel a bit less guilty about not going RX.
    Excited for Snatch Practice tomorrow!

  • Nicki Osborn

    4:42 with 83#…and step ups after the set of 21 box jumps, because jumping on a box for time that’s 1/3 of my height isn’t something I really like doing 🙂

  • Jim S

    Lots of fast Rx’s today. Not this kid… I was neither Rx or fast.
    A: Ran 1 mile 6:58
    B:185lbs, 7:17
    But hey, I turned 48 this week so I’ll take it.
