The last post mentioning Oktoberfest…maybe

Jordan must have been using the female sandbag...he was making it look SO light.

Jordan must have been using the female sandbag...he was making it look SO light.

Warm-up: 500m Row, 30 Diamond Push-ups, 30 Hang Power Snatches (45/25lbs)

Deadlift: 5RM

MetCon – AMRAP in 10 minutes:
6 Muscle-ups
10 Kettlebell Swings (50/35lbs)

After CrossFitting for less than 3 months, Jordan competed in the Oktoberfest Games this past weekend.  He placed 14th after Friday’s barbell AMRAP.  Then there was the run and swing workout which he knew he would have a harder time at.  He fought through to the end though.  Next was the chipper.  He battled it out and finished mid-pack.  Sadly, the chipper was to end his day. Jordan suffered a lower back injury that is going to keep him out of the gym for a few weeks.  Let’s all let him know he will be missed, and that we want to see him back in here ASAP.

Speaking of absences, Big Paul has been playing hooky for far too long now.  If you haven’t already, give him a call and check in on the big guy.  The gym just isn’t the same without him.  Matt Hinton’s hard work ethic is another notable dearth in our numbers.  I’m not too worried about Glenn, but I haven’t seen his name on the board yet this week which is an oddity for him.  After a notable absence yesterday, Travis showed up this afternoon and worked hard or at least put on the façade of hard work.  Lorena, we hope to see you later this week.  And to anyone else thinking about skipping out on a workout, just know there are repercussions.

Remember, we are a family so support each other.  If someone hits a PR or is working out of their mind hard, let them know you notice and approve.  When someone fails to show up for a class or two, get on them.  We all need little reminders here and there that we are doing a good job, or (gasp) not doing what is expected of us.  Keep each other accountable.

I don’t answer Blake’s phone calls when he misses workouts,
Coach G

I told you all there were repercussions.

I told you all there were repercussions.

    I hope those mutated ice cream sandwiches get that kitten!…Jordan, get that back healed up so you can crush my times and reps like usual. PAUL! Get your a$$ back in here. I need some crazy unattainable numbers to shoot for…I know sometimes its hard to get to ktown after a long day at work or a late night but we all know how much better we feel after a WOD. See everyone this afternoon. Holla!

    Wish I could’ve made it in for the WOD yesterday. I would’ve posted some crazy number like… 0. Or 10 if you let me do the KB swings first.
