    Great WOD today, even though my burpees towards the end were embarrassing. Very happy with my progress in the Strict Press. New PR, 160×2

    65# x 2; 70 x 1 (both pr). Tight neck/traps flared up big time and prevented more.
    18:08 L2
    agree with Jason – dre makes anything better (ditto to snoop and 2pac)

    Shout out to Chris Wilson up in that pic! If I remember reading the 5K results correctly he wins that heads-up race, sorry Tim. Chris’s strength and WOD results he’s been posting have been crazy, I gotta get like Chris.

    Press: 135×2
    WOD: 22:05 Rx

    Deadlifts didn’t give me any trouble, that should give you an idea how my burpees went. Thomas was set up next to me with a Rx bar, he made the burpees look effortless. I only work hard on burpees when Dre comes on over the speakers.

      Thanks dude! It definitely helps to have folks like you consistently throwing up their times on here. It was only a short time ago that you were crushing me on everything and I am sure that will happen again very soon. In fact, I predict that starts tomorrow, since I stink at pure cardio WODs πŸ™‚

    After yesterday’s train wreck of a workout, it felt good to be back in the swing of things today!
    Before class: Set of max pull ups – 18 reps (PR)
    Strict Press: 130×2 (PR) 135×1 (PR)
    WOD: 21:36 L2 – Just finishing one of these Hero WODs always feels like a major accomplishment. I think this may have been the first Hero WOD I finished at L2. And let me tell you those last 3 sets of dead lifts were all crazy difficult.
    Note to self: You need to stop taking such long rests in between sets!

    140 lb. x 2 (PR); 20:49 Rx. The volume of DL at 225 lb. was a bit much for me, but when your picture shows up on the main site, you gotta max out.

      thought that was you….hauling ass! Looked like it was about to be a photo finish.

        Thanks man! It definitely was a photo finish – I think we ended up getting the same time.

    135×2, 145×1 both PRs. Started out way too heavy. I should have checked my journal first. I just realized I last strict pressed in April!
    14:49 90 dead lifts,

    If I’m here on Sunday I’m totally in for the beach WOD! I hope there’s swimming!

    140×2, 145×1 (both PRs). I also had excellent Jane Fonda’s if I don’t say so myself.

    Thank you for your service SPC Nichols.
