KH + Stella = 21:47 (14# @ 9')

Wonder Twin Powers Activate!

December 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKH

I saw the wonder twins firsthand and they are tfba's.

22:06 w/Keith Dubya. Fun, but my quads already have me walking like Red Foxx and it's only an hour later.

1:44/1:48/1:44 on erg splits. All WB's broken into sets of 5, w a couple of airballs that were no rep. Never let that puppy hit the floor. Overall, height was 'aight. 20#.

Ah, KH, Katie and I finished in 21:59 (14# @ 9'), so we were right behind you. Not that I'm competitive or anything... Such a fun workout and 11 am class with McDowell and MeLo.

Also, some of us assaulted Matt Katz behind the desk about shirts, and didn't get a chance to tell his boss--who was helping people stand on their heads--that he's doing a wonderful job. :)

Best of luck Totallers! Crush those records!!

December 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterCharlie

a. All the best to the Totalers today! Good luck.

b. Enjoyed today's wod - especially after yesterday's 6k test for crashb. Partnered with Erin but I forgot to write our time on the board. I think we finished at about 23 minutes. My rows were inconsistent: first 500m slightly below my 2k pace (1:58), second right on it (2:00.7); third totally crushed it at 153.
Wall balls were the killer for me. 16# at 10' but had to go in sets of 5 or six by the second round.

c. I left a black jumprope with red handles (and purple tape around the handles) in front of the microwave. If someone sees it or remembers to toss it into the lost & found I'll p/u on Monday or Tuesday - thanks.
Richard.

Tripled up with Julian and Brad in the 10am. Performance Rx in 3:20, 3:55, 4:00. Really fun WOD made even moreso by the musical stylings of the Beastie Boys.

Alan and I partnered for this and we finished in 22:55. My legs were jelly afterwards. But a great WOD - always like doing partner WODs.

Holy crap! What a workout! Dean and I did 20#/10' in 20:37.

Hey just a shout out to the Totallers today. I am reading the scores on FB. Such amazing gains especially for some of the first or 2nd timers. You guys are so impressive and such an inspiration!! I was going to punk out on my 6k row tomorrow for a number of BS work reasons -- but after seeing these scores I packed my gym clothes!

You guys are awesome - miss you already. Keep kicking arse.

Saturday
Clean & Jerk pause complex:
Success at 115# after two failed jerks.
Interesting trying the push jerk instead of split jerk. I like the challenge of the pause as well. Definitely more fatiguing.

LBBS:
155x5x2; 155#x5x6 - aiming for 10 reps but blood sugar was low and I wasn't feeling it.
Really cool of Margie and mgmt to come up with/accommodate amended programming for the TTD meet. Thank you!

Sunday
Warm up x3
(15) DB thrusters 15#
(15) hollow rocks
Ring plank :15, :20, :30

Partner WOD Fitness w Ray - 3 rnds ea:
These are tough movements for me, but I am seeing some improvement.
(25) 14# 9' wall balls in 3 sets w 3-5 breaths in bw
500m row, 2:12-2:20 splits
Straight up heavy breathing and thigh burn. Rough but glad I did it.

Total Recall!!!

I am about 3 beers in so apologies for the rambling, syntax, typos. First, thanks and praise to Jeremy. This was my second cycle and I can't thank him enough for the help, encouragement, knowledge and humor that he imparted over the last 8 weeks. Its a privilege to work with him.

Also, a big thank you to Adele, Niko, Joy, La Rosa, Willie, Nancy, Mike B., Ian for coming out and supporting us today. It means a lot and adds some lbs to our lifts.

Huge praise to my fellow lifters. Some very very impressive performances today. Super inspiring. Thank you to my platform mates for the last eight weeks: Yuen, Brandon, D-Turn, Janelle, Bev, Dan and the rest of the strength cycle crew.

So the numbers . . .

Squat:

1st lift 235. Went up ok but a bit slower than I hoped.
2nd attempt: 245. Tied my PR but the bar was not moving well.
3rd attempt: 255. Fail. Truthfully, just did not feel good going into this lift. Was not confident stepping up to the bar and its showed. The squat is definitely my goat. I have more room to run, just have to be more confident, more aggressive and figure out how to get my "chest up". A 2014 project (I will hit 275 next year btw).

Press.

Ok, this is where I thought that I could make some money. I made some good progress here this cycle and was pretty confident I could pr

First attempt: 125. Not a problem. I have hit this for a triple so did not expect much difficulty.
Second attempt: 130. Made it but had to put up a fight. Thought it would move faster.
Third attempt: 132.5. Truthfully, would have gone 135 (planned to go 135) but the last lift was so difficult I dropped down 2.5lbs. Long story short, went up a lot easier and faster than lift two ( I was pissed off).

Deadlift.

First cycle, after an epic struggle, PR'ed at 285. Felt like I made progress this cycle and decided to open there. No problem.

Second attempt: 295. Hit a new PR but had to fight hard for it. Once I get the bar to my knees I can finish it in a blink but its a struggle to get it there

Third attempt: 300. Fail. Combination of anti-climax and no gas in the tank. This will go down next cycle.

Total: 672.5 vs. 650 first time out.

So . . . if you are thinking about doing S/C, DO IT. Its fun, you hit PRs, and you get a chance to confront your fears and limitations. What could be better.

Jay.

Awesome job today strength cyclers. Saw some hard won reps go up (or come down and go up again).
