  1. 12:46 i think (10# wb, jumping mus)

  2. 13:48 rx
    Muscle ups took forever. Would have been a lot faster if we started with the MUs.

    Logan – good job on your first class.

  3. 11:48. Yes Andy, you are correct. It is much easier to do the MUs first. I did MU-Row-WB. 5 MU strict/5 MU jumping, 1004 meters rowing, 75 WB but the last 20 or so my accuracy sucked.

  4. 10:43 Rx
    slow paced WBs to go for MU unbroken, still wasted 1:00 on last 2 reps…fail

  5. I’m getting ready to order some Skate Liver Oil from Green Pastures. It is recommended by Chris Kresser, and has similar benefits to fish oil, but the cold fermentation process apparently alleviates some of the health concerns with heat-created free radicals from a press process. Regular price is $44/237ml and $10 shipping (which we can split, it goes up only $1/btl). If we get 6 bottles together we get 5 dollars off each, 12 and an additional $10/btl discount accrues. Email me @ devonslovensky@gmail.com if you want to get in on the order.

    Here’s Kresser’s explanation of his concern with long-term fish oil supplementation (note he’s primarily talking about pressed oils here):

    Deadline: midnight tonight.

    1. We have moderation now?

      1. Additional $5/ btl for a total of $10 if we get 12+ btls. Sorry for the typo above.

    2. Apparently we can mix/match and still get a group discount, fyi in case you wanted something else

  6. 14:54 (10# WB [not all to the tape], RB pull-ups and dips)

    Henceforth, this WOD shall be known as Lex’s Tantrum WOD. Apologies to anyone I came across on my warpath. :-/

    (Also, is there any way we might be able to get a wall ball rack? I’d happily chip in some funds if it meant not having to pick dirt out of my contacts anymore.)

    1. Hahahaha!!
      I hate getting dirt in my eyes too, but I’m not sure a rack would keep them from getting dirty since we’d drop them on the floor anyway…

    2. also noticed that the balls were particularly dirty today, never had that problem before

    3. When I was in Denver, D-town Crossfit had a really awesome med ball rack, you can see it in the background here:

      Looks like it was made with big pvc, didn’t look particularly expensive or complicated. I’m sure if someone asked they’d tell you about it. Kept everything nice and organized and clean! No more crap in my eye for time!!

      1. Actually, now that I see that pic, they had something really similar at Ferral Crossfit in NY when I visited over the holidays.

      2. some sort of holder for equipment is typical at places of exercise

  7. Muscle up practice- able to get in about 7 ring dips without a band
    14:30 (14#, rb dips)

  8. 100 Pullups: 3:00 (48 second PR)

  12. 12:08 with 14# WB and red band MU transitions + dip

  13. 13:38 (10#, green band PU, box dips)

  14. 13:54 (run, 75 – 26# goblin squats (not FROM), BBPU/RBRD) – aka almost a completely diff wod :-/ cranky knee times.

  15. 18:30–10# WB, Ring dips with blue band and ring row for MUs

  16. 14:20 (8#wb, RB dips and GB pull-ups). Not all wallballs up to standards (but 8# is a good step.)

    1. awesome jess!

  18. 15:25-20# WB, 5 MU, 10 PU, 10 Dips

    1. Awesome work on the MUs today!

      1. Thanks man. I was so pumped.

  19. Over 10 double unders in a row pre-WOD.

    Muscle up practice: chest to rings, jump and settle into deep dip, working on butterfly style kip – kick your butt.

    WOD: 13:03 (14# WB, 20 ring rows with fee on box + 20 ring rips)
    Finished WBs at 8:18, but started to fail on ring dips (no lock out)… uhg.

  20. 11:46 (14# wb, pull ups/red band dips)

  21. 13:44 (10# wb, pull ups/ dips with blue/red band)

  22. 16:31 (I was wrong when I wrote my score on the board, forgot about that five minute delay!!) – 8#wb, 2x bbpus and rbdips

  23. Oh God…ok so I only did 70 wallballs, in my defense, I’m an idiot

  24. 14.28 (14# wb, rb dips & pu), lost a bit of time in transition b/c I didn’t know we could group the dips & pull ups in sets larger than 2 each.

  25. 15:30 (20#wb, 20PU, 20dips)

  26. 12:14 (12# wb, ring rows/rb dips)
