    New Logo: 150 is the new 100.

  • Craig Parcells

    you think that sounds easy? omg the pullups

  • Jack Bauer (Greg)

    This doesn’t even sound easy. Who wrote that? It should be called “Looks Hard…Is Harder”. LOL
    Marisela-I left $60 for you at Crossfit. I expect my change in large bills-preferably clean crisp singles. :-)
    Anyway to end our week with another humorous clip
    Enjoy:

    LMAO at the Nunchucks guy!!! Hilarious! Thanks for that.

  • Jack Bauer (Greg)

    I knew that would be the one that got your Keith! LOL
    I watched it like 10times because it was nuts. You’re welcome

  • Moon

    There’s actually a bigger story behind what’s going on with the nunchucks guy. Basically having one bad day captured on tape can hose up an 18 year career.

    hspu rom was pretty poor for the 4-5th sets. some broken blood vessels around the eyes too.

  • Jack Bauer (Greg)

    Damn Bretty you’re a beast! Good time though. I’ll be doing the modified HSPU on the box once my arms get wobbly. I ain’t got insurance like that man! LOL

    This was really tough. It felt long and at one point wasn’t sure what round I was in.

  • Adam

    I haven’t tried this today, I’m going to do it later today. But I have a quick question for Keith. I finally did that front squat work out yesterday and followed it up with some light weight snatches. Somehow I slightly tweaked my lower back, the left erector spinae to be specific, and it’s still sore/stiff today. Any ideas for some stretches I could do to help out?

    38:34 As Rx’d (Less than full ROM on the HSPU’s)

  • Adam

    And how exactly do I do those? any links to websites that demonstrate those positions? And thank you for the lightning fast reply.

  • brett_nyc

    Nah Greg, Kevin’s the beast so far. Well done Kevin.

  • Adam

    Nevermind Keith, I googled the poses and fiugred out how to do them. thank you

  • Jack Bauer (Greg)

    Kevin is the Bionic Man Brett. Cumbya!

  • Kevin

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Brett kicked ass as well.Did you see the times on HQ’s site. Speal 13:23 and OPT 14 something. Ridiculous. I gotta do this again very soon. I want a sub 20 on this.
    And a tip for everyone don’t have Choucroute (Classic dish from Alsace, France consisting of lots of sausage,meat and tons of pickled vegetables and various condiments)the night before an intense WOD like this. Though it did Pair up well with a Dry Riesling and Gew√ºrztraminer. Unfortunately I ate so much and felt so crappy this morning I was burping up sauerkraut before the WOD even started. Pukie was banging on my door big time, especially after the WOD for what seemed like an hour.

  • Jack Bauer (Greg)

    LOL…Not very zone Kevin. I’m going to do this work in 30+ region. The pullups are going to murder me.

  • Ewen

    Actually Greg, I suspect that choucroute is quite Zone-friendly. Not WOD-friendly (especially in large quantities) but Zone-friendly.
    Mmmm, choucroute… (Homer H. Simpson style)

  • brett_nyc

    Popye’s fried chicken and biscuits for me for dinner. Tomorrow’s a rest day…with 2 hours soccer.

  • Jack Bauer (Greg)

    LOL. Damn you Frenchman! Always there to add your two francs!

  • Jack Bauer (Greg)

    Brett Popeye’s is the bomb! Have a good weekend ya’ll. Probably hitting up the movies tonight to see War or Superbad again; that’s if I can lift the card to buy the ticket after tonight

    Urbanathlon: Now’s the time to get your shit together, people! Deadline is the 31st and I’m not paying extra! Give your name and cash to Marisela, let’s decide on teams and let’s start training. This is when the “training is my sport” crap stops and you start working towards an event. You do know you’ll be running 3 miles + obstacles (maybe even 52 flights of stairs) right? Hop to it!
