    Nice benching with Silverback, TI, Ramrod, Cal and Billy. Good job 8:30. Thanks G for insisting I use the plate mid medcon. My ego wanted me to do RX(and it was wrong).
    32 consecutive double unders..progress

    Happy birthday Brant & Jackie! Jackie, I miss seeing you & hope you are able to return soon.
    Really wish I could do BP today ๎Ž but I’m headed out to get some r&r at the river. No WODs for me this week but plan on running every day to work on my endurance. If I start missing Atomic too much then I just may throw in some burpees! See y’all next week.

  6. Silverback

    BP: 205-225-230(3)-225(4)
    Metcon: 6:35 (Rx) – Never thought I would post Rx for a WOD involving pistols, but my new WL shoes are awesome. Thx G!
    HBD Brant & Jackie!

    Bench Press
    185-195-205(4)-215(1)-135(21) Been a while since I did bench press, actually pretty good progress for me.
    Forever(10# plate) Cal and I were battling in the corner of futility this morning. I think we finished somewhere around the 15 min. mark. on the plus side, this is good progress for me on pistols.

    Bench Press– 75-85-90-95-100(3)
    MetCon– 7:05 (Plate)
    I could only do one 100# bench press last time we did them so I’m stoked on 3! Haha. Pistols are still not my faves and I don’t think they ever will be. The plate helped but I still don’t like them. Great job 9:30 and nice meeting you, Z!

  9. FPR

    Metcon – 5:12 (Rx)…had a battle going with TI for the first few rounds…Good job!
    Awesome job Thundercats!!

  10. T.I.

    Bench: 185-205-225(3)-225(2)-135(21). My worst day ever, by far, on the bench. What a shame. Good times with everyone over at our bench though.
    Metcon: 4:38(RX). I’m starting to like pistols. A good one today. Aida, I didn’t realize we had a battle going on because I was so far ahead of you, lol.

    Billy get it right we were at 13:10 not 15. if we are going to suck we have to put the right sucky time!

    5:44 rx
    65-75-80-85[3]-85[4] :/ Not sure, but I think the last time I did 5×5 on bench I ended around 110… So, I’ve definitely got a ways to go before I am back to where I was in the strength department…trying not to get too frustrated! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Fun little metcon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice meeting you, too, Ivana…and Kelli! Good job, 9:30 peeps!!

  16. Speedy J

    65(10)-95-105-115-65(20)..shoulder is not ready, had to keep my wing elbow tucked in – thanks coach Daniel – POW!
    5:05(Rx)..felt heavy, one to many cookies and glasses of wine in the system.

    Range of motion took priority over speed.

  20. G

    Good to see George, 007, Old Hickory and Tye back in action! Very good to see Bobo very early with the pacemakers ๐Ÿ™‚
    Glad to hear about your recovery Ingrid!
    Easy Rider, you were on your toes and compromising your knees. Adding the plate helps you focus the force of production on your heel rather than on your toes.
    Kelly T and Chris did their baseline with Coach Daniel today!
    Good work Z, especially since you haven’t done this in a long time.
    Silverback, I may have to get me some myself.
    HeMan…woop-woop!….pistol with long legs…..amazing!
    Kendra….The Force is with you.
    Nice time TI!
    Some of you did bench press for the first time ever and it’s so cool to see it being tackled with confidence. I’m liking the attitude, especially with the chicks =)

  23. Billdozer

    Good job everybody coming out and doing a difficult movement today and getting some strength work in. FYI, Babs is entering the 2011 CF Games, we are making T-shirts. BABSfit.

    Thanks for spotting me Billy, Toddsky, and Pat! I loved the pistols/burpee combo after the fact and liked the pistols scaling. Felt good hanging with the boys at 6 p.m.

  28. Toddzilla

    185-205-225-235(3)-225(4). Bench felt good. Metcon was a little goofy for my long body.

  29. Gab

    Metcon 9:18Rx and I use an elastic band to stay balance for the pistols.
    By the way, thank you G for the Christmas wishs in french.
