Cool or corny?

  2. Holding up a reebok basketball ball shoe is corny as hell. I bet on every show they are going to show us some sweet new reebok gear that works great for heel strikers and basketball. We may even get lucky and they will talk about some baseball and football cleats.

  4. DL: 413x5 (last time: 404). last rep was UGLY and i'm lucky i didn't injure myself. I felt strong, too, i don't know exactly what happened. Probably pulled to hard and my hips went up without the rest of me. might also not have taken a good enough breath before the rep.

    172 DU. so close, ZachR!

    Great job 6am.

  8. 374#X5 DL. 17# jump from last time but felt good so was appropriate. Coming off a two week cold so a bit weak.....sounds a bit contrary doesn't it. ;-)

    Speaking of weak......42 DUs....goal for 2011 is 10 consecutive so along way to go!

    Big weights going up at 6am!

  10. 335x5 today. I am still going with lighter weights to try and hold my back flat better. After rep 3 it got a litle ugly but still better than in the past. Gotta keep working at it.

    159 DUs in 2 minutes today, 26 more than the last time I tried over a year ago. I think I can get 200 if I did this once a month.

  12. That was really dumb. At least get somebody that can speak in front of the camera. Show the Zigs...something a CrossFitter could use. I hope CrossFit doesn't sell out.

  14. 174# on deadlift

    Nick, you inspired us all on your last lift. Nice job!

  20. If anyone is looking for something different, there's a trail run this weekend at Platte River State park- 4mi and 12km (7.2mi) routes. Beautiful trail with a lot of small hills. Don't wear your best shoes... it tends to get muddy. Plus beer and a pig roast afterwards.
  21. Michael Rock Says:
  22. 246# x 5. As for DU's..... I cant get more than 1 at a time and I am not even sure if I am getting one. Did not want to ask Amanda to watch me the whole time. So I put myself down for 0. Should be easy to beat next time. Thanks to the 5:00AM class for making me feel welcome.

  24. It was nice visiting my boy Jon Day at lunch today!

  26. Just had a chance to watch the video Jess posted yesterday... If you missed it, you should watch it! Now! Good stuff... 10 or 15 minutes - not a huge investment of time.

    For even more geekiness (if you have an hour to kill), I also listened to an Underground Wellness interview with Keoni and Jade Tate - there's a really good breakdown of how hormones affect appetite, metabolism, and fat loss. Also, anaerobic threshold and malnourished marathoners. Get excited!

  28. 242# x5 for deadlift. Disappointed in this.Wanted at least 268# bc i got that weight 3x5 a couple months ago. Weight felt pretty heavy.

    142 double unders

    Games prep:
    AMRAP 8 mins
    6 kb swings 1.5 pood
    9 push ups
    12 box jumps 20inch

    completed 6 rnds+swings+4pushups

  30. I really enjoyed watching 6:30 deadlift tonight. Some super-sweet t-shirts and some badass lifts. Mary might have the prettiest deadlift form I've seen.
  31. Joel Says:
  32. 384# but only 50 DU's have to work on that. 384 felt light though.
  33. BC Says:
  34. DNF on the DL. My goal was 313# but I was struggling during the warmups and when I pulled that 1st rep off the ground it felt ugly, so I'm sure it looked even worse. I got it but it didn't feel right at all so bailed after that, didn't feel the need to screw up my back for the rest of the week.

    108 DU's, which was pretty disappointing. I was struggling with them today and could not get into much of a rythm. Amazing how fast 2 minutes goes by.
  35. BC Says:
  36. As for the CF news video, I'm assuming (re: hoping) that the shoe prop was the result of them just screwing around and having a little fun, and not an indication of future product placement. Clearly Reebok has written a large check to get their name all over the games, but I doubt (again, hope) that they won't be pimping the latest incarnation of the Pump on every newscast. As for the news feed in general, I think it has potential and could really help build excitement and anticipation, and help single out individuals and teams. But if it turns out to be anything like the steaming pile of crap that is the Games website then it'll probably look like a bunch of 5th graders on a public access channel. I'm choosing to be cautiously optimistic until further evidence appears.
