Laura,
Annie is one of my all time favourites - google Annie Sakamoto if you want more.

8.34 rxed this morning. Hats off to Rob for doing parallette HPSU this morning.

Dave said...

13:46 scaled for the HSPU; first three rounds with a 45# plate underneath; failed on last rep, then went to the bands.

Bill and Dionne - thanks for pushing me again. Careful, you might be the charter members of Dave's cheering section.

Rob, you're an animal.

As I thought, this was a James wheelhouse WOD...definitely not for me.

Scaled to 185# on DL, did the first 2.5 rounds on the wall for HSPU but the remainder on the bands with a 3 for 1.

21:48.

Feeling better on DL form.

I think I was around 14:00ish. I accidently reset my clock before I wrote it down. Scaled to 165 for DL. I did all of my HSPU unassisted against the wall, which was pretty motivating for me. I didn't have the range of motion I would like to have had, but, I've improved to do that many attempts free-standing, so I'm happy.

20:15. No way could I do 50 HSPU, especially when sandwiched between sets of DLs so I subbed pullups (2:1). DL was 135#.

8:52 as Rx'd

I worked on free hand stand with Chad again; the feedback this time was to keep my feet together as they were drifting up to 6 inches apart; it immediately made a difference; I can hold for 5 - 15 seconds, but most of that time is spent somewhat 'walking' in an effort to not fall over; however I was able to stick one 10-second period where I didn't drift

Another good group this morning. Our morning numbers keep growing. You will see some advertisment soon for the Saturday 22 Jan foundations class. With the new year it's a good time to encourage your friends/family/neighbors to get started with crossfit.
