James- is the 31Heroes WOD Wednesday or Thursday?

Noah said...

If you need some motivation, watch this gal set a world record for back squat...745 lbs.

Also, 31 Heroes will go on Wednesday.

james said...

sorry Dionne - i think I told Bill Thursday but then the damn SAMSTERS had our run on Thursday so we changed it.

Rich said...

That "gal" ain't natural!!

Rich said...

By the way, if anyone is interested, there is the 9/11 Memorial run in Olathe on 11 September.

My wife's running club is going to have a group down there but anyone can register and run.

Greg M said...

I won't be in this morning, up all night with my daughter who is sick. See you all on Wednesday.

IMCF Hohenfels:

(pesky metric plates again)

Followed up with 100m farmers walk with 200lbs (10m shuttle)

Ed said...

225-245-255-265-275-295 (and a bonus -305)

Realized at 275-295 that I had plenty left. Probably should have went heavier earlier and ended up around 315 or so.

Rich said...

185, 205, 215, 215, 225, 235. Could have gone a little heavier, but I wanted to focus on good form.

Mike said...


Got to workout with one of my former Battle Captains and his wife. They're PCSing to Virginia and stopped to workout with IMCF.

Mac said...

20x wall ball shots
30x pushups (hand release)
40x abmat sit-ups
50x double unders
rest 1 min

15:15 (splits - 3:53, 4:41, 4:42)

Kay said...

115-115-125-125-145-145. I went light on the first four sets, then found my 1 rep max - a new PR for me on the back squat.

Scott said...

Focused on form and deep squat. Felt good.

Experienced first earthquake last week in C'Ville, VA--now that was interesting. Decided I probably won't be moving to CAL anytime soon. :)

Alex E. said...


215 is a new pr for me.

April said...

95, 105, 115, 135, 155, 165, 170
Failed at 175. Twice.

Got some good pointers on control from Roger today as my squat problem is going TOO deep. I think I started a tad too light also.

D Beasley said...

225 / 225 / 245 / 250 / 260 / 265

Noah said...


Could barely come out of the bottom of my 195s so dialed it back for the last two sets to ensure full ROM and to not get stuck.

Dan said...

frustrating morning:
185-185 (recognized horrible form, and dropped to correct it) 135-135-135-135

james said...

good work Dan - stowed the ego to do things right
