    The site says 3 rounds for time. I did five rounds.

    Thanks Ted,

    I apologize. It’s definitely three rounds—I’ll talk to Melody when she gets back.

    I was surprised I made it through 3 rounds. Just thinking about doing 5 rounds of that makes my blood hurt.

    You are the man for completing! Great job!

    You did an amazing job… Maybe the trainers were thinking that if some body can complete those extra rounds, will own the exercise name!

    All Hail Ted! Superstar!

    Everyone is so supportive. I feel compelled to disclose that I did a very weak five rounds, with a bandage break and a weight reduction (225-185 lb dl, 60-50 lb swing) between 1 and 2, total time of 25:18 or thereabouts. But thanks,

    You’re reading that right above—Melody nailed the fastest prescribed (or more) time of the day with 250-lb. deadlifts and swings as prescribed. That was amazing to watch.

    What may have been even more impressive, was Jenn J.’s day (see her results above). On February 19—the last time she deadlifted—she pr’d at 175-lbs. Today, she completed this entire workout at 175-lbs. (and the very first repetition at 185-lbs.) It was a tremendous effort and a privilege to watch her muscle her mind and her body through it. Congratulations, Jenn.

    You folks can pull some weight.

    Sakar, one of our newest athletes, deserves congratulations. We didn’t subject Sakar to the WOD today, because we haven’t deadlifted more than a plastic pipe together, and because he’s been on vacation for a couple of weeks. That said, we worked up to some heavy singles, and the man picked-up 335-lbs.—good enough for the gym record.

    And Ted, I hear that what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. We weren’t planning for a literal interpretation of that colloquialism, but hey, it worked out. Great job, Sir.

    Not bad, kids. Not bad.
