CrossFit South Brooklyn BBQ!

Jim, Max, Marie and Pauline will be hosting a Barbecue for CFSBK on Sunday, July 6th at their rooftop deck. Everyone is invited and encouraged to attend!  Please RSVP via a comment on this post including your email address.  We'd like to organize people to help out with some food and condiments so that we can all eat way too many blocks and make this BBQ a success. Once people start to confirm we will figure out who can bring what.
Thanks so much to our generous hosts for this great idea!

Today's workout comes courtesy of Mike Rutherford at Boot Camp Fitness Kansas City

I will 100% be there. I can bring the funk and whatever else needs to be brought.

First off, BBQ sounds great. I'm going to plan on making it.

Deadlifting program:Warm ups:225 x 3245 x 3275 x 382% of 1RM:an utter failuremy lower back was still tight from the overkill on Thursday and the cleans from yesterday. I'll have to pick up later in the week.

I ended up doing "Vertigo" on a horrible pull up bar for kipping, with 30 lb dumbbells: 9:18not super motivatednot a great trip to the gymlife goes on

also, I had another of those recurring dreams I was talking about last night in which I smoke a cigarette, realize that I've missed my goal of a year without a drag, self-loathing kicks in, and I wake up in the middle of the night. That's the 3rd time in this week. Same dream, different settings. My imagination needs to get a hell of a lot more imaginative.

Brandy,

Where did you buy those gymnastics pads for your hands? Those might be a good investment for mid-workout ripped hands.

Great job today, guys!

Flight to Cincy is way delayed so I'm sitting at the airport bar with some coworkers.

Bad News, I won't be able to attend the BBQ.

Good News: I'll be at the Games.

I'm glad so many folks think they can make it to the BBQ! We'll be sending out an evite a little later in the week with directions and such.

I tried the main site WOD today:"Lynne"5 rounds max reps of body weight bench press and pullups.

Subbed 135# for BP (about 90% bodyweight)

Round 1: 7/20Round 2: 6/16Round 3: 5/12Round 4: 5/13Round 5: 4/8

Bench total: 27PU total: 69

Bench is definitely one of my weaker exercises, and one I have only done once since starting CrossFit 5 months ago. I am definitely stronger on it despite not benching! Previously I never would have been able to put up numbers higher than 3 on the third to fifth rounds. I think there's something to this whole CrossFit thing.

I could probably have put up a little higher numbers on the PU save for a nasty rip in my hand. Once you drop off the bar it doesn't count though, so better numbers next time!

BBQ sounds great.

Workout today: move myself from manhattan to brooklyn, 5:30:00.

I'm definitely going to give Lynne a shot tomorrow; I haven't benched in months and I think I'll be pleasantly surprised at how it goes. Don't know pushing 190# though.

WOD time: 19:42 min (38 lbs DB)I did the PU strict as long as I didn't have to do more than six in a row. Switched to jumped PUs then.

Apart from the WOD which I did in Brooklyn, this has been my toughest CF workout so far.
