    16:00 something 5 rounds. I intended to do 7 rounds with L1 reps but I hit my FIRST DOUBLE UNDER on round 5!!!!! I interpreted this as a sign from the aforementioned WOD GODS that my night was over.

    Who knew all I needed to DU was to rap along to The Notorious B.I.G and Bone Thugs and Harmony.

    22:07 w/ dub attempts. I need to get better at dubs. they are a becoming a staple in my goat salad. no good.

    yesterday chuck and I were trying to figure out what the worst wod would be for me…it’s not quite perfected yet but it definitely includes rowing, heavy wall balls and dubs.

    Sammy where you at!? My man executed the seldom seen MID-WOD BELL RING tonight. I happened to be on the pullup bar next to the bell as he did it, afterwards he yelled FIRST DOUBLE-UNDER and high-fived me so hard I thought he shattered my hand. LOVE THAT. We put in so much time and effort to get this stuff, why not celebrate big when we succeed? Be excited when you do something you couldn’t do before.

    WOD: 27:37 Rx

    Thank the WOD GODS that there isn’t a pull-up bar movement tomorrow. Bar muscle-ups Monday, deadlift/toes-to-bars last night, and chest-to-bars tonight pushed my hands to the brink, there’s only so much callus shaving I can do. Blistered up but no tears.

      I had to ring the bell bro. It just felt like the right thing to do!

    WOD: 27 and some change. 15 dubs/red & blue for CTB
    It was officially goat day for me, a whole lotta shit I suck at;)

    Did it tonight at home, couldn’t make it in this am. 18:06 rx. Played some reggae.

    20:33 rx? I think?…CTBs didn’t feel too bad. Went unbroken on 1st round. Had several slipups with the dubs, though.

    TEEEEJAY. Last day tomorrow! Your looming shadow will be sorely missed. Good luck in Stamford. I really do think you should moonlight at WWF. For the record, I put your name into a pro wrestling name generator and it suggested “Outlaw Frankenstein.”

    26:50 Rx. Goat from top to bottom.

    20:54 RX. haven’t been taking care of my hands the way I should be and it showed today, tore ’em up pretty good. butterfly pull ups felt good pre-wod – getting there – TinaMo made a guest appearance and gave us some help on the butterflies.
    Last 5:30am with TJ – good luck brother.

  10. Marc Piccuirro 08/14/2013 at 11:34 am

    As close to wheelhouse as it gets. One small trip up on the last set of dubs but otherwise went unbroken.
    Sorry that today’s class was my last with TJ. Best of luck with the strongman program!
