    It was BB4 all the way until I got to G!!! 1 vote for G!! I got to get that face down – perhaps that’s what’s holding me back… πŸ™‚

  2. SpeedyJ

    G..mouth open and noise is coming out for sure!
    As always, thanks Cal for the early am entertainment – get some rest!

  3. Lauren

    G is war face queen. BUT, Bullhorn’s face on his last clean while barreling towards the crowd to successfully get under the weight was truly rather frightening.

  4. Black'n'Blue/TripleB

    Going with G. And I already worked out so I’m not sucking up πŸ™‚
    2 rounds + 11 reps
    Sandbag get ups are horrible. Off to Austin to play now though, everyone have a delicious Halloween!

  5. Gatekeeper < -III--------III-

    Sorry ya’ll. The pictures would’ve been better but the lighting was to low for my lens. πŸ™
    3 way tie! T-Rex,Wolverine and G.

    4 rounds on the dot.
    threw in the towel on the OHS, shoulders are dead. this morning was quiet weird, between the rap music, me dancing, grace wearing a cop outfit and juan throwing bars everywhere, all we needed was a midget on a tricycle and it would of been real creepy.

  8. T-REX

    HAHA! Hilarious! Oooogly! Yeah, I think Gracie’s cam has the pic of Cal running into the crowd, if you can post that one it would win, very scary!

  9. Keith Fogle

    OHS 45-45-45-45-55-55-55
    Still working on form and depth before adding any serious weight…making progress, I actually feel more comfortable with my form now…thanks to G, JohnnyB, Ralph and Fred for the support…
    Metcon: 2 rds + 12 reps (RX)
    For the War Face contest, my vote is for G!

  10. Contra

    Good job everyone at 930
    I left my blue addidas warm-up pants – will have to get it from u next week.

  11. Billdozer

    Thankfully Grace decided not to post the picture of me with my face about to explode. Still stick with my post from the other day. Cal wins, with Juan a close second for intensity.

  12. Gatekeeper < -III--------III-

    Billy, Cal and Juan both look like that on a regular or irregular basis… πŸ˜‰

    I am sorry I will not be able to be at the box tomorrow for the meeting. I meant to post this at the beginning of the week but I forgot. Gracie…maybe you can conference me on your cell phone!!!

  15. Julia

    I’m going with Bullhorn. He looks like an angry mother gorilla who just had her baby taken. A definate war face!

  16. Bullhorn

    i vote for Julia’s description, that sounds like a bad ass shirt. i am going to try and find that, a pissed off gorilla, YES!!

  17. wolverine

    After witnessing it first hand, got to go with Bullhorn!

  18. G

    I’m voting for Bullhorn, Part Deux!
    Thanks for the reminder, Lauren. I have watched Cal on both Bring The Heat and Showdown. Both are extremely eventful! Although, Ramrod looks like he is about to metamorphosis into Incredible Hulk, IMO.

  19. dianna

    gotta agree–Bullhorn, Part Deux
    nice lifting, happy nooners and good to meet you finally, Chrissy.

    I felt good with my squats today and my shoulders held up pretty good….
    I were just 4 of us at 4 pm…Like the Beatles…..hehehe…. good job gents(Hernan, Bryan and Caoch Daniel…)awesome work!

    wasn’t thinking how smoked the shoulders would be – and didn’t take into account that the bag get up utilizes much less shoulder than the turkish get up. oh well.
    bring on the beer.

  33. Easy Rider (aka Robert Hammond)

    OHS 95-115-135-145-155(2)-155(1)-155
    Failed some but if I can remember to keep my grip narrower I will have made significant improvement on technique. Think I could have gotten 165 – 170 175 maybe.
    Metcon 3 rds + 10 reps

  34. JohnyB

    2 rounds + 10 kb (RX)
    Getting up with my scrubs on?! Perfect!!
    Quite upsetting, I did 15 KB swings EACH rounds. πŸ™
    I have to work on my legs still, won’t stay back but undoubtedly, a little bit better OHS form … I said, a lil’ better!
    Ralph- I give you A+ on your OHS form! Who’s your preceptor again?! hahahaha
    Master G- Better than the last one, though. Keep it up… No grades for now. Just show your claimed GUNS with no bullets! LOL
    Keith- Well done, Sir!
    Thanks Coach G as always but I’ll Vote for Bullhorn – Part Deux this time. πŸ™‚

  35. Sarah

    Had to comment on this one!
    War face= G
    Laugh my ass off face= Cal
    LOVE Julia’s explanation! I was in Pei Wei laughing at these pics like a crazy pregnant lady! Seriously Cal, it doesn’t matter how bad my day is going, because all I have to do is think of these pics (they are engraved in my mind) and I laugh, almost to the point of tears πŸ™‚
    Good job G on finding ONE bad pic of Ramrod…got a good laugh in there too πŸ™‚

  36. chrissy c

    3 rounds + run (40#)

    Good job hard working ACF tribesmen! We’ve been paying close attention to everyone’s grip and where the bar sits on your palm and that seems to help quite a number of you guys.
    Great costumes all day long! You guys definitely know how to have fun!
    Keith, The Situation and Arnold great job on the big milestone!
    Welcome Jameka!

  44. Bobo

    went way too slow on the first round.
    great time with the nooners today!
    I was torn between Pat and G until the ‘Cal Part deux’ was added. that takes the prize. reminiscent of joker’s war face.
