    Well done crew. Good persistence on the Farmer Carry despite technical and logistical complications. I’ll need to work on that one because it’s a valuable movement, particularly when your grip strength is already taxed from the prior workout.

    Thanks for the encouragement Jo.

      Well done on doing it so quick Jim, how much is your 1RM now?

        1RM is still 60kg + chalk.

          Chalk. That’ll weigh you down Jim. So has that been my problem with pull-ups and deadlifts?

            Chalk won’t add weight to your pullups (thick shoelaces are a trap for beginners) but it certainly adds weight to the deadlift. We use the heavy variety at CFK.

      You did it so easy Jim! The olympic lifts get you a bit hooked & my hands have way more callouses from those crazy farmers carry’s 🙂 It was lots of fun!

    Christian,
    I need to work on my 1RM Snatch to improve my Isabel time and you need to work on your defence to a left hook if you want to further your MMA career:

      Yeah, my defense to a left hook is really the only thing holding back that MMA career.
      Bummed about the Farmer’s Carry … and being so unco at keeping it balanced 🙁 .

        Look on the bright side, you were totally on top of unbalancing it. You’ll go better next time mate. I am just as certain of that as I am that your next mohawk is going to look wicked!

          Oi, my last mohawk looked wicked too!

    Jim, you should approach CFHQ to include yesterday’s WOD as a hero WOD. Every muscle (including my face muscles) hurts today! Also, not sure which movement was supposed to give my ribs a workout, but it worked!
    Please make tomorrow’s WOD rolling and chatting…

    You’re wearing the chalk as a charm bracelet again?

    Gah, why didn’t that go with the first thread?

      The website only allows five replies per comment. I like the cryptic nature of your comment’s current position. There’s a bunch of people out there right now thinking “Is he talkin’ to me?”

        Who said that?

          Why isn’t there a “like”button on here?
