Back to heavy lifting by popular demand

You all did well yesterday on the rope climbs. Getting the foot hold down is pretty important if you want to continuously get up that rope. The better your foot hold is, the more you can use those legs to shimmy up that rope. Oh, and don’t forget long socks! And if you slide down rather than climb down you’ll burn your hands and the same thing can happen to your shoes, just ask Zack…

Here we go with some more heavy lifting by demand of the people!

      Hey Molly, so apparently you and I have the same hair stylist. Poor Torey got a double dose of CrossFit/paleo talk this week! Hopefully she’ll be checking out the CrossFit craze soon. 🙂

    140-165-175. 3-3, Elijah DQ’d me for stopping with 8 seconds left. Got sick on the 60 second ride home. Good times!
