    225/195/240/190/255/180(15rps); BW 217; score 44.2; should have gone lighter on the last set so I could have completed 20 rps.
    71 pullsups; sort of rushed these as I had to get to work
    All together an enjoyable workout as I had not have been on the bench in a while.
    Great work pacemakers.

    Great job pacemakers.
    160-160-195-140-215-140 = 51.27
    30-15-20-15-15 = 95
    Went too light on the set of 5 (should have gone 175) and set of 15 (should have done 155).
    Stephan said it best…”I haven’t benched in a long time, but after all the push-ups we do, I’m better at now than when I was benching all time.”
    Funny how CrossFit works like that.

    Today was a good day in the box.
    Total=69 BW=227
    Max Bench 205lbs on my 3Rmax and 1 Rmax I could have gone heavier on my 1 Rmax
    12 consecutive pullups (PR)
    3 weeks ago I was on the bands.
    Note regarding Jim’s comment it has been 5 yrs since I was regularly lifting weight and back then I struggled to bench 205 2x. Today 3x no problem.

    the palms of my hands started sweating after reading the WOD! Now I can’t wait to get there tonight. LOL!!

    Looking forward to this one-I’ve never done bench press in a WOD so this should be interesting!!!

    My mistake, math and OHS are my weakness.
    153 + 49.7 = 202.7

    Fam, I am trying to get a consensus on who wants to order so we can set up a group from Atomic CrossFit just like CF Champions and CF Houston with their own delivery schedule. If we have enough people, then we can pursue it. So, for anyone interested please reply to comments to the Nutrition Blog post if you haven’t already there or here. Thanks guys!
    Good baseline today Romi!
    Ivannah, Miles and Joe did their first WOD today. Vince came back at 8:30am for his second WOD.
    Crazy Carl, hope you recover soon!
    Great to see Spec, Kate, Todd, JDS, Eli, Stephen and G2 back in the box.

    Total Coefficient 33.28+84 = 117.28
    Should have gone with 95 on 5 reps and 85 on 10 reps. Don’t know how I missed 115 when my PR is 120 – thanks for spotting and pushing me on the single Todsky 🙂
    Thanks for counting my reps Nate. Forearms were not cooperating.
    G2 and Genie – had fun sharing the bench with you both and doing the WOD with the rest of the 6pm crew.

    Pull-ups were a lot tougher than I expected. Forearms were on fire. Need to work on my grip.

    Great time on the pull ups with John, Lopez, Eli, 007 and Spec. Bench press still weak but getting better. Carl hope nothing too bad happened on that bench.

  27. billdozer

    91 pull ups, some crappy bench press and a heavy weigh in equals bad wod for the dozer, but we must work on our weaknesses. That being said I hope to see some deadlifts and cleans in the near future to make up for this one.

  28. todd

    129.89. PR on bench. Grace, sorry i messed up your mojo with my cat-like reflexes, but I was afraid you were gonna drop the weight on yourself. Sorry, I shoulda known better. 🙂
    Great to be back in the box…

    Todsky, no worries. I’m glad you were there to spot, just in case.

  31. I love Erika Lehem

    Completed all reps sets, but I accelerated time due to gym closing. DIdn’t get the full 50mins.
    185, 165, 200, 155, 205, 135 = 8,405
    20, 12, 12, 14, 12 = 70

    Wish I was stronger and not such a p…y.
