We would like to see you working as close to your body weight as possible.  Please weigh in before the WOD.  If you are lighter then when you weighted in at the beginning of the challenge, Congratulations!  the workout should be easier this go around :).  If you have been here less than a month we want you to do 1/2 -3/4 your body weight.  If you have been here for less than 3 months we want you doing 3/4-body weight.  We will give you plenty of time to warm up and decide on an appropriate weight for the workout.

    1/5 2 rounds, 500m row, 5 deadlifts at 202lbs. DNF

    although I am disappointed at the lack of actual lbs lost, I am really excited about my accomplishment!! I could NOT have done it without the 7 am class cheering me on! Thank you all!

    13:45 Rx (185#) [First time for me]

    Dylan went HAM tonight during the 7pm class.

    Ranjith, don’t blame Angie, you can’t bend your arms because they’re on SWOLE. Stop with the fat bar curls before class!

    Christine is a tough workout and people were moving well the entire time. Good job to the morning classes

  21. Patrick V 02/27/2012 at 3:32 pm

    My first Christine: 14:09 at 215lbs. Ranjith, I’m with you too…I can’t straighten my arms and the lats are still screaming from Angie. Congrats to all of the Paleo peeps!

  22. Gill 02/27/2012 at 2:23 pm

    11:59 down from 13:36. I guess all those depressing dairy-free breakfasts paid off.

  23. Ranjith Zachariah 02/27/2012 at 2:12 pm

    14:22 (175)

    That’s 52 seconds slower than when I started the paleo challenge. I’m blaming Angie: she really wore me out–my arms feel like rubber and I can’t straighten then. And those two brownies last night at the Oscar party didn’t help.

    Enough excuses. I feel terrible. I need to earn my stripes.

      Next time you do Christine you’ll be fresh and ready to go! Get that swag up.

  24. HAM 02/27/2012 at 3:57 am

  25. Nicole D 02/27/2012 at 1:27 am
