May 27, 2015

but please resume posting your scores on our brand new, superawesome weekly whiteboards. It is more important to your fellow members than perhaps you realize.

You are not getting all you pay for if you just kind of stroll in, do whatever I’m asking you to do, stroll out and kinda think you’re getting better, maybe. I mean I feel like I’m stronger, I think. And last week I did 185 for 5 or maybe it was 190 for 4, I’m not sure…

So please,  as a personal favor to me, or to Whitney if you like her better (which is fine, totally fine,  whatever I’m not mad) please write your scores down before you leave.

Posting on the website would be great as well…

First,  please be advised that while officially, test out is M-T-W of next week, if your schedule is such that you’re away next week OR you feel like you are peaking right now (test in 1 rm x3 or 10% better than your test in 1 rm) you can test out this week. We haven’t done that before, but in the past we’ve seen some athletes peak slightly ahead of test out.  Totally up to you.

May 20, 2015

We will be closed Sunday and Monday to observe Memorial Day.

Saturday we will, in the CrossFit tradition, run the BenchMark Workout MURPH.

Entirely optional, entirely scaleable.  MURPH as rx;d is

for time

run 1 mile

100 pullups

200 pushups

300 air squats

run 1 mile

Row sub = 2k x 2.  Airdyne sub= 2 Miles x 2

The calisthenics partition anyway you want.  To do them in the order written is much harder and is NOT prescribed.

We will be open regular open gym hours 10-12 and  send people out in heats every 15 minutes.  Last heat leaving at 11:15.

Some notable performances.  Neal and Andrea sub 12 on the Black side reverse ladder of Snatches/Box Jumps.   I was at 14:28 and thought I was doing OK.  a 3 minute spread is a huge margin to be beat by. Day ruined.  Ryan Perkins Front Squat 310×3!  Test in was 285.  My all time PR 300…x1.  Day worse…. Zack Parker, consecutive double unders well into the double digits.  I used to be able to do that…. Day at rock bottom.  At least I have my cool-ass speaker to play sad songs with.

Well done everyone.  I’m looking forward to test out week!

Gold- We have two weeks remaining in the cycle. Your primary lift sets drop and become peak focused,  meaning that somewhere in your 3 sets of 3 reps you are looking to hit the heaviest weight you can.  You are no longer concerned with total poundage.  Your posted score (our new scoreboards should be ready by monday evening) is your heaviest successfully completed set.  So if your sets go 115×3, 135×3 and 145×2  your score is 135.

Your accessory work becomes more important and there are now 2 accessory actions instead of just one.  Although these are NOT scored, your intensity here should be very high.
