    Strict Press – only hit 2×65, not my best

    Wod – 12:02 L2 with 14# Wall Ball
    I rowed 1250m after since I came in last… and got my first 3 unbroken unassisted pull-ups today thanks to Joyce inspiring me!

    Strict – 105
    8:24 – Lv 1 w/ Black Ball

    Can anyone tell me what the different weights are for the balls?

      Pretty sure it’s:
      Green = 10lbs
      Blue = 14lbs
      Red = 16lbs
      Black = 20lbs
      And I believe there some 30lb balls also floating around the box.

    Thanks for the hospitality 7pm crew, had a blast.
    I think I just drank 4 gallons of water.
    That RX weight was crazy – I didn’t even think of going there – nice work Mark and Mike B for going heavy.
    See you guys again soon.

    1. Strict Press: 165lbs

    2. Quigs! Awesome having you tonight. Pushed me at the end of the WOD to go unbroken on the wall balls. Def would have taken a break without the push. Thanks! You Should consider becoming a true 7pm’er. PR City.

    3. 15:00 RX although easily would have been no rep’d on 1 to 2 jerks each set for either not completely locking the weight out or getting my feet together and in line with my hips and shoulders

    4. Manny crushed it – hit 175 on strict press. Shows the true Dominican beast deltoid strength. imagine if he knew how to use those hips on a push press!? 225 easy!

    5. Mad comments. This is sick. Keeps me entertained all night!!

    6. Amy and Goose-daddy. I love you guys,

    Trying out this posting business haha. learned how to do HSPUs today, have my work cut out for me learning how to actually lower down once in the handstand. 75# press, no more no less than before so I’ll take it tonight. WOD: 8:34, 75#, green ball – think its time to move up to blue. Nice job 7:30!!

    Strict: 85, not my best work.
    WOD: 11:17 @ 95/blue ball.
    On another note, I have now made 2 major accomplishments under Nick’s guidance…a few months ago I got my first 10′ rope climb and haven’t looked back and then tonight I got my first hand-stand hold. It must be something about that Italian, Midwestern-ness, ha! (My maiden name is as Italian as they come, Giglio and I’m a true Chicagoan!) As always, thank you for the support, excellent coaching and encouragement Coach D!

    Yo shout outs to COOLIDGE! Witnessed him turn from Banner to the Hulk and throw up a new PR on the press. I’m sayin’ it was the 7PM BUMP that did it for him! Post it dude.

    Having Quigley with us tonight was awesome. Constantly encouraging everyone on the platforms and in the WOD.

    Press: 145×1 (Tied my old PR, meant to throw on some plateau-busters, 1# weights, but forgot.)
    WOD: 11:32 L3
    Actually really happy with how I was moving the bar, just couldn’t do it fast enough to avoid being lapped.

    11:44, 75#, blue ball (first workout with the blue)

    Awesome tire flip pic, Shelby! Way to go!!
    Don’t know if it was having had too much fun over the weekend, the heat, or a combination of things, but that was TOUGH!
    I can’t recall a prior workout that:
    1. Utterly and completely wiped out my shoulders like that one did; or
    2. In an hour covered ALL the bases:
    a. tabata warm up
    b. stretching component
    c. skill component
    d. strength component
    e. WOD

    Very nice bit of programming there.
    I liked having time to work on the skill. For the past several months I’ve just defaulted to doing pike-ups on box instead of trying HSPU’s. And the extra time tonight totally helped. I was able to get my first unassisted holds on the wall, and then even a very slow, controlled head to touch the ground.
    Strict Press: 125×1 A little bummed about no PR today. Prior best was 130. Failed an attempt at 135. That bar was going nowhere…
    WOD: 12:57 L2, 16lb wall ball
    Those push jerks were no joke!

      I SWEAR that Haley was able to MANIPULATE TIME tonight. Tabata, into plate ‘around the worlds’/thrusters, into barbell rolling, into press instruction/practice, into jerk instruction/practice, into wall ball instruction/practice, into handstand hold/pushup/walking instruction/practice.

      At this point I looked at the clock and thought there is no way in hell we’re going to have time to make an honest effort on the platforms and do the WOD. NOPE, WRONG, we had plenty of time for everyone to max out on the platforms, and 7PM had as many people as ever so some platforms were 4 deep. Finished up with the WOD no problem.

      I posted this all before, I consider running a jam packed class like that an ARTFORM. I’ve been elsewhere and seen much less efficient uses of time.
