  1. max 205, needed to eat more spinich(?), this was real hard. Form was breaking down (elbows lowering), spent most time 185-195.

    Good to be back, Shawn suggested my goofing off for the past few days contributed to the above not hitting max.

    • naa.. goofing off can be good rest (though the food might be a killer). It was the moon, it’s on the wrong side of the planet. Creates a heavier gravity well.

      High gravity morning.

  2. 75lbs x 3 x every 2 mins (14.9wks)
    I think I got 15 sets in.
    I admit I thought about making today a rest day since it was a heavy day and I’m limited. Glad I came in though. Front Squat @ 75lbs started to feel very solid and more natural. Mon/Tue gave me good enough intensity.

    • Nice job Shawn! Bummed I missed this one…

    • For what it’s worth Shawn, I appreciate your enthusiasm for the workouts and encouragment! Thanks for making it in.

      • Thanks Mark. It always gets my day started off well with some CFS. Always the right tone! That’s why I sometimes hate rest days (like tomorrow). No umph and laughing to start the day off.

  3. Forgot to mention I like the new warm up concept of focusing on a few specific basic items – I’ve wanted to master the “Box Bounce” and it helped working on it this morning. (hint: I wouldn’t mind some work on Wall ball technique…)

  4. 135-140-145-145-150
    First body weight front squat! 150 was my goal today, and it felt good to reach it.

  5. 3RM= 255lbs

  6. 3RM=145

  7. 3 RM=175

  8. 3 RM=175
    Focused on squatting all the way to my heels today.

  9. 255# (20# PR)
    MU #2

  10. 225# front squat
    50# PR from September
    20# PR from January

    It was nice to not have to sweat my guts out today or use my extremely sore arms. 🙂

  11. Great numbers in the gym today everyone!
