  1. Dude! Is that a Bison, Buffalo, or something similar?? U R CRAZY!!

    • her name is Buffy. bottle-fed since baby-buffalo-hood after her mom tried to stomp her…totally awesome & freaked when a human turned upside down nearby 😉

      • HA!!!! I *love* this.

      • That is way cool!

      • I agree…. awesome set of pictures!

  2. Here is the map for the 50 yard dash:

  3. Rx @ 6:25

    Great pics, Michael!

  4. Was totally not expecting this to be this hard for me. Power snatched the first 7 or so unbroken, and ended up doin the first 17 reps with the P.S….big mistake(for me). Took a lot out of me. Even though I’ve been practicing my running, I still struggle with the sprints during the WODs. Clean and Jerked the last 13 reps, and I should have done it through out. The snatches probably cost me over a minute in rd 2. Oh well, I may do it agaib this PM with all C&J to compare.

    As Rx 6:45

    PS. Gr8 job morning crew, you all were scooting your @$$e$ today!

  5. Rx 7:35 (Clean and Jerked all 30 reps)

    Love the pics… Buffy is too cute (never thought I’d say that about a buffalo)!

  6. Love the pics! Did the HQ wod this morning thinking my right arm was rested enough– wrong. 😦
    Used 44lb on the ground to overhead but that was still not good for the bad arm. I’ll seek professional attention for it now.
    6:49 I think.

    • Sorry your pain is still hanging out Joy…it might be time for a trip to Dr. Sadri.

      • The nerve! I made the trip, Coach. Dr. says it’s a nerve. I’ll be back in the a.m. but can’t do any overhead lifts.

        • Damn nerves!

        • If anyone has nerve, it’s you, Joy!

          • Hmmm. I’ll take that as a compliment, T! Glad you had the nerve to come in today in a bad mood– isn’t that what Growlery is about? 🙂

  7. Growlery

    Snatch-grip Deadlift, (135/95)

    9:28, Rx

    (rest 5 minutes)

    7 rounds: (95/65)
    1 Power Snatch
    1 Snatch Balance
    1 Overhead Squat
    1 Hang Squat Snatch

    5:32, 55#

  8. 5:24 rx. Ended up doing half power snatch and half clean and jerks

    • Damn!! Good job Bryan…definitely have to do it again now, LOL!

  9. Growlery

    After a horrible morning, came to the gym in bad spirits. Did snatch-grip deadlifts and burpees 21, 15, 9 with 54# in 15:30. Still very slow with burpees, but I improved my form a bit (learned to come up from the floor with feet wide, which makes it easier to stand) and they were less painful than usual. Didn’t have the energy for the second part of the workout.

    I’m really glad I came in. Everyone was seriously sweet to me, and I feel better. xoxo

    • Good to hear it, you worked hard!

  10. Great being back after 4 weeks of nada. Love the new space. Looking forward to starting Growlery tomorrow.
    HQ-all C&J 67#, 5:29

    • Welcome back Christin! I’ve been away for a bit too, but should be back on Wed.

    • C-Street!!

    • Thanks for pushing me today. If that was u taking it easy, wow. Great to have u back.

  11. Growlery
    FIrst wod
    Snatch deadlift – I used 77 because in warmup this seemed hard but looking at it now, should have used more.

    Second wod – Snatch complex
    7 rounds
    1 Power Snatch
    1 Snatch Balance
    1 OHS
    1 Hang Squat Snatch

    Started with 55 but moved to 44 to get good form.

    I’m really liking this programming, I feel like I am really getting good technique help, today was a great example of that. Usually, I do snatches when they come up but never really practice the movement.

  12. Amarinthia, are you out there? I’m at a conference in New Mexico and just met a young crossfit couple from Seattle. They gave me their info. for you. You can email me at They seem pretty cool. Wife’s response to your name: “Wow, Amarinthia? What country is she princess of?”

    • Haha, it is a regal sounding name!

  13. Great workout this AM

    ~6:16 RX
    Did 10 snatch, 10 C/J, then broke last set 5 snatch then 5 C/J. Don’t think I lost very much time on lifts but need to run faster!

  14. Just did it again. Faster, but still not what I wanted or anywhere close to Zeke and Bryan. The C&J is definitley the way to go…Zeke, you would have gone sub 4 mins with it.

    As Rx 6:04

    1st round unbroken, 2nd horrible, 3rd 7/3…running sucked all the way!

    • I’m going to enjoy this for one day. But I think snatches are the way to start. I did first round and 2 and 3rd I started with snatches and then switched when had to break.

      • Yea, I just saw Mac and Kelly burn through it a little while ago. Mac 535 and Kelly 425, the did a good bit of snatches too. I just think my snatch isn’t as fast as it used was before all the new shoulder crap, but mainly I’m just not running fast when I’m fatigued. Yall all did a great job…I need to get better 😉

  15. So, they posted tentative heats for the next garage games…I’m in with Mariah Provost and Leah Polaski – NOT FAIR! Haha….oh well! At least neither Erica or I is in a heat with Shana!

    Again, I encourage anyone to consider participating…the open division has low weight (95/45) and jumping pullups are allowed.

  16. 7:06

  17. Fun WOD today.
    Rx 5:34 (all clean and jerks or clean and push press)

    Followed up with the Heat WOD for the Garage Games.
    1 min pull-ups: 28
    1 min sit-ups: 35
    1 min push-ups: 23
    1 min squats: 50
    1 min dead lift (205#): 10
    All done with running clock

    I’m planning to sign up for open/scaled portion of the event and hope others do as well.

    • Yay! Be sure to send your stuff in by the weekend….its gonna be FUN!

  18. Made this up yesterday: 7:18. Weight was 55#, I think.
