In honor of Randy Simmons, 51, a 27 year LAPD veteran and SWAT team member who was killed February 6 in the line of duty. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Simmons’ wife and two children.

Randy is a workout I’ve wanted to throw at you for a while.  It’s very high volume, but the load is certainly manageable, and this workout can be done very quickly.  It’s one movement, you just have to keep moving.

WOD: Randy
75 power snatches, 75#

For your viewing pleasure, here’s a commercial for IdeaPaint, and another for Rage heavy med balls that I wish I posted sooner. Both were created by our friend Patrick from Again Faster, were shot at our box, and feature some of you.


***No Invasion this Saturday, October 16th

Work on your agility, coordination, and balance.  Join your CrossFit Fenway friends at the Havana Club in Central Square on Saturday, October 23rd at 9 PM, for a night of salsa dancing, socializing, and fun.  Lessons and libations are available to help you learn the moves.  Like any WOD, proper footwear can help performance, so try to avoid rubber-soled shoes that will grip the floor and make turning more difficult.

The Beast of the East throwdown at CrossFit New England is Saturday, November 6th.  Our athletes are getting ready.  Mark your calendars, and get ready to come cheer on your CrossFit Fenway teammates.

Compete in the most physically demanding obstacle course available on Saturday, November 13th in Marshfield at Ruckus Boston 2010Stephanie Schneider is helping to organize the CrossFit Fenway team.  Please contact her if you’d like to participate, as discounts are available for teams.

    2. Good job man. Sorry i couldn’t join you today but my back was really tight and figured 75 snatches probably wasn’t the best idea. Wanted to wish you good luck at the Beast of the East. Look forward to training with y’all again soon.

  1. 10:06 @ 25kg. Lesson of the Day: Tape thumbs. But! Proof that I used a hook grip 🙂

    Looking forward to doing this one again.

    And the commercials are awesome! Can’t wait to show them off to my friends!

  2. WOD: 9:31 Rx

    My second Rx ever, and nearly as exciting as the first. To me, this was more of a cardio workout than strength, but it was still fun (when it was over).

    In your honor, Randy.

  3. 4:59rx
    i wouldn’t so much call them snatches towards the end for me, they felt like stripper deadlifts with a push-press.

    was interesting being face to face with Justin, stacey made me do it!

    and yes, I might be a convert to the 5:30am classes…

  4. WOD: 11:25 Rx

    Thank you everyone in the 6:00 pm class. I would have gotten through the last 25 without you guys. Nice surprise nighttime appearance by Scrappy, too. It feels great to do a hero workout Rx.

    1. My other nickname is Sneaky…

      Awesome work Shorty and the rest of the gentlemen in the 6pm this evening…I hope not many of you saw the hot mess that my 5pm WOD was.

      9:51 — 20x25kg, 55x20kg
