ExerciseSet 1Set 2Set 3Total
Wall-Ball 14#8
SDHP 55#9
Box Jump16161648(+1)
Push-Press 45#9

For a total score of 156. 19 points higher than last time and 8 points higher than my previous PR with lower weights for the wall ball and SDHP!!!!.

HOLY COW! 'nuff said. (... there might be a few wall ball reps in here that weren't technically quite high enough ... shhh.)

I'm very much looking forward to a retun to Crossfit as normally scheduled and a departure from the 31 flavors of FGB Max has inflicted on us ... I admit that - clearly - looking at my scores from the last several weeks - it paid off ... but I'm still glad it's over with.

Also - today I nearly got a deadhang and a kipping pull up! Well - half a deadhang. THis morning before leaving to go to the gym i decided to see what i could do on our pullup bar at home - i started with my arms bent - and got the bar to about eye level. - probably about 6 inches up or so.

And then after the workout i tried a kipping pullup and ALMOST got it ... i got my eyes up to the bar - just another few inches!

In other news, I tweaked my left knee a little bit last week when trying (and utterly failing) to climb an exceptionlaly stemmy 5.10 a/b last Sunday. My knee was definitely unhappy the rest of that day - and it's been sort of complaining in a low whine this past week. It really didn't like me trying to jump up on to the 20" box on Wednesday since it was doing most of the work, and Thursday's running for Nicole was also hard. ... and while it didn't bother me at all during FGB today, it was aching both before, and definitely after. I know Daniel wants to do Cindy tomorrow - and frankly, i do too, but I'm not sure how happy it will be about the squats. .... :-p darn it. Maybe I'll just do right legged pistols ... ROFL! ... right ... (Max you can just ingnore that thought as crazy talk ;-) ).
