The Saturday morning CrossFit Chaos saw some new faces: along with CFC members Sue P and Pete H, Coach Chris was joined by his fiancee Rachel and friends Ashley and Paul, and we had Matt A and Mike B rounding out the group. A nice variety of Rowing, Wall Ball, KB Swings, Medicine Ball Over Head Squats, Jumping Pull Ups, Knees to Elbows, and more. Everyone put in a great effort – what a great way to start the weekend. Thanks to all who participated, it made for a fun Saturday morning!
The Saturday morning Poker game was in high gear, with Amy F, Kathy K, Larry C, Rob V, Marianne U, Paul D and Jen L wheelin’ and dealin’. After 20 minutes of organized mayhem, Rob J was his first pot, with 4 Queens. Blood, sweat and tears all around. Congrats Rob, well done.
Girl Power! Dayna and Amanda go overhead — they learned the Push Jerk today and progressed quite nicely. Both did a great job and finished with 65# Push Jerks. Quite respectable for their first time with that lift.
On Ramp sessions continue, with Jason J and Tommy M grinding out the WOD following instruction in the press, push press, and push jerk. If you see either of these two guys over the weekend, please don’t wave to them — they won’t be lifting their hands up very high any time soon. They push hard and we are lucky to have them training with us.
Paul D, Dave S and Mark O will be representing CFC at Yale University’s Battle of the Badges 2010, Saturday, February 20th, 2010.
