    Axle Press: 170
    Axle Curls and Row: same as Maguire as well

    JT: 10:41. Ring dips and push ups still need work, but it was over a 3 min pr so I’ll take it.
    Cash out with Pat P: I think it was more like 8:30 or 8:35

    shoulders smoked. don’t know how much axle weighs, but weights were around KFP and Nick. Jive turkey: 21hspu unbroken then fell apart on 15s, clock turned so not sure time but it took a long time. solid score tracking on my end today. cash out w/KFP: conditioning WOD and 50 medball GHDs.

    Press got 175×4 kind of smoked after that 185×2 and then I had to go a bit lighter
    Curls, whatever McGuire says
    Row I think the same as McGuire also.
    Wod 12:26 KIPPING hspus have improved a ton since the goat phase. Now I’m ready to finally get some strength during this beast phase.
    Cash out with Hyatt
    10-1 of 135 hang cleans and burpee box jumps
    I wore elevation mask
    10:50 I think Hyatt did it in like 6 mins no mask.
