  1. RIP Jack, glad to get through this one I didn’t have much in the tank this morning. 10 rounds + 4 push press Rx

    2009 crossfit games champion mikko salo did just over 18 rounds of this WOD……that’s gross

  2. WOD: 7 rounds + 17 reps.

    Woah… I thought my shoulders were going to explode. Between push presses, kb swings, and throwing my arms around during the box jumps, it was a really shoulder test. My shoulders still hurt, but I think it’s a *good* hurt. We’ll see if I can lift my arms tomorrow.

    In your honor, Jack.

  3. WOD: 10 rounds + 13 reps @ 89#, 1.5 pd, 24″

    pretty psyched to match Stacey’s score on this one… but i really wish i could have gotten just one more rep 🙂

  4. 8 Rounds + 6 Push Press Rx.
    The push press slowed me down the most, but the kettle bell swings were killing my lower back/hips in the later rounds. I need to work on getting stronger in these areas.
    This is one of those workouts where my muscles fatigued to the point where my cardio actually started to recover during the work. This probably means the 115# was too heavy for me, but I’m glad I did it.
