It may have been April Fool’s Day, but the WOD was no joke….After a max rep set of Body Weight Deadlifts, we took it outside for 10 rounds of 10 KB Swings, 10 Push Ups, with a 50 meter sprint between both stations. Frank R and Kris S made the 12:30 class, then Jess G, John M and Eric S came in a little later to try their hand at it. Great to be outside again finally!
With our master webmaster off in Costa Rica looking for the cast of “Lost”, we stalled a bit on our postings, so now we are making up for lost time: on Monday, March 29th, we had a back breaker of a workout: 5 rounds of 10 Deadlifts, 10 Power Cleans, 10 Front Squats, 10 Push Jerks, and 10 Back Squats, with a 2 minute rest in between each round. Brutal. Everyone rose to the challenge, with no quitting, whining or crying (but plenty of sweating and groaning). Mike D, Matt B, Frank B, Joe G, Paul J, Justine L, Eric S, and John M featured.
The Friday WOD was tailor made for the weather: a 400m run with 20 Burpees (Yay Burpees!), then a 400m run with 15 Burpees, and a 400m run with 10 Burpees for time, a 5 minute recovery, then 75 Box Jumps for time. I was able to catch various members throughout the day; pictured are Mike R, Jess G, James M, Frank C, Tim D, and John E. Great effort on a challenging workout!
Everyone loves a good fight, so on Friday, 2/26, there was a big turnout for Fight Gone Ugly (yet another CFC version of Fight Gone Bad!). Deadlifts, Ring Push Ups, Seated Box Jumps (especially cruel), KB Swings, and Dumbbell Push Press. Ouchey. In various stages of discomfort are Rob J, Steve R, Rob V, Pedro R, Jess G, John E, Nick M, and Josh C.
The Monday (02/22/10) WOD was: five 3 minute rounds of 3 Burpees, 6 Thrusters, and 9 Box Jumps (AMRAP), with a 1 minute rest in between rounds. The morning crew hit it hard, and it hit back. John E, Rob J, Rob V, Scott L, and Steve R. The New Haven crew came in next, with Larry C joining in. Again, hard effort and bodies on the floor. Both groups put in some terrific effort – nicely done!
