    back after a week off
    5×5 at 275, 285, 295, 305, 295 (x4, failed on the last rep)

  • Craig Bagno

    Back Squats – 135# across the board. Ouch. But in a good way. Form is getting incrementally better.

  • Brad Hoover

    Huge news you guys: I found Kenny!! For the old 6:45am 26th st crew his current stomping grounds are Kevin’s 6:20pm class. He’s got a fresh new haircut, too.

    Sully’s 5:40pm. Arrived with the intent of keeping it light ahead of Friday, but the bar felt so heavy due to my avoiding/missing heavy back squats during the Open. Sets of 5 at 95-135-185, three sets of 2 at 205. Starting next week I’m getting back into a consistent strength routine. Move that weight.

    • Sully

      Consistent movement is key, nice work on those squats.

  • Jon N.


    Somebody walked out with my brown dress shoes from the 28th Street locker rooms after the 6:00 pm WOD today. They had tan dress socks in them. If you got home and realized you were wearing the wrong shoes and/or socks (or took them home in your gym bag), please bring them back…would be much appreciated!

  • Del

    7:00Pm Experienced, being tall never works to your advantage for squats.

    But put up a PB last night failed once @ 300 but managed to get 2 reps @ 300.
