  1. 3RM: 410
    Not quite PR, but I’ll take it. Always good when you lift at max effort, irregardless if your body’s at its peak. Warning though, there is high gravity weather this week. Jeff and Casey agreed.
    My only regret is that I should’ve done more sets. Since I was trying to reach my PR I was trying to lift heavy, but totally admit I was avoiding getting started because it felt heavy! Left me with only 4(3?) heavy sets. Lesson: check ego, make a good hard lift, move on! (yes Ryan, you may try and slap the engineer out of me)

  2. 275, 295 4x Form is getting better it’s still heavy but I felt better while doing it than in the last 1x set. Mantra is to break 300! When I told Taryn – her comment was obvious – you didn’t try adding 5 lbs? I was just glad I wasn’t breaking my body.

    The Double Under instruction was good, now to ingrain it in my muscle memory!

  3. Hey guys! My last week has been crazy, but I just started classes and am starting to get into a routine and was able to make it to the gym just now. I got a 3 rep max of 190#. I’m pretty happy about that since my 1 rep max was 165# a few weeks ago when we did Crossfit Total. I will give the credit to the big PR to the endless supply of grilled chicken we have at the dining hall here, of which I have been consuming large amounts over the last week. I just started classes but I will definitely try to keep posting here!
    I miss all of you at CFS. Good luck braving the cold Northwest fall. I’ll be out playing in the sun.
    (By the way, it’s 79 without a cloud in the sky today) 😉

  4. I got to 130 today. Improvement from the 112 when we did 10 sets of 2 on deadlifts. Nice work Cam, glad you are settling in. Enjoy that nice weather!

  5. 275#

    Matched my PR from last time we did this. Double-under practice was a great idea. Got 20 today…max is 25.
