Think we were tired? Painstorm make up.. about half way.. post thoughts on Rob’s odd body position to comments
Overhead Squat 3-3-3-3-3 reps
Post loads to comments.
I think that pain storm is a great example of the type of workout that the average sane person would never do by themselves. It really requires a group effort.
I can’t say I was happy when I was was done, I just wanted to stop squatting.
How many 300s today?
hahahaha i just saw Thomi up there in the corner, hahahahaha
Like a train wreck…It’s horrifying, but i can’t look away.
I look like a sad wringling brothers elephant on my elephant stand.
he looks like a guy that just got knocked out in a UFC fight and landed funny!!!
rob looks like he took a swift kick to the balls!
it looks like he’s bleeding to death from a stomach wound…that big sweat puddle kind of looks like blood
This, to me, is another proof that CrossFit is not in the body, it’s in the mind. The mind can be our best friend, or our worst enemy. We have ability to shut out everything, get in the zone & perform. Our body is capable of doing anything mind tells it to do. I suspect it would be easier to get someone to smoke a cigarette or eat some fried food, knowing those things are unhealthy, that it would be to get that person to try a WOD.
P.S. Off topic, Yeti, please take a note!
Rita, you are reading my mind!
nice work chris
95,100,105, 110f (the old throw it over my head trick) 110f ( told myself to not let go of the bar no matter what, the brain attempted the throw it over my head trick, the hands listened to the “don’t let go” cue.. So I ended up with a 110# pendulum smashing into my left quad. and hyper extending my knee backwards. Can’t put weight on it. Going to be an awesome bruise! )
75,85,95,100 f (1), 100 F (1) So close so close – that is frustrating maybe next time!!
Thomi I think you should stick to floating the bar on your head ha ha. No really, hope your leg is okay girly.
Damn Thomi. That’s all I got.
Does anyone else’s wrists hurt after overhead squat?
CF is mental for sure!!! and for the record, my mind and I are no longer on speaking terms…
my mind has never gotten me anywhere good, so i don’t listen to it anymore!!!!
95-115-125-135-135. my wrists hurt after overhead squats and pretty much any lift that requires holding the barbell on my chest.
Thomi – thanks for a great couple of weeks, I just got back home. Awesome to get a couple workouts in with the 5:30 crew, you guys are strong. Always a great time down at CFVB!
165-175-185-195-205 PR by 20lb of 1RM i’ll take it.
I had issues w/ wrist pain but Thomi told me not to grip the bar w/ my hands straight up over my wrists when overhead rather let them fall back so the weigt is not bearing down on your wrist. I haven’t had any pain since. I am sure I probably didn’t explain that very well but I hope you got the idea.
135/155/175/200/225 It took a while to warm up.
95f 95 105 115 120pr
PR at 125 by 5 happy-ass pounds.
And after I discovered I had purchased the same hot laces as someone else who will remain nameless, I took my happy ass to Hot Topic and got the good sh*t. It’s magic time. F**k unicorns. I’ve got rainbows!
Stubborn me, last rep didn’t go up by 5#, decided to go up by 10# to 90… and it bit me on the a$$… I learned my lesson…
