Lots of PRs out there; Megan and Daniel were first-time participants, and Paul hadn’t done some of the new for 2011 events, or there might have been even more.

Valeria revisited


Her. Not the one up there.


Scaled to my weight (170-175#), the “Good” weights are like so:

Bench Press: 135

Pullups: 175 (with weight belt)

Deadlift: 245

EZ Curl: 65

Time (4/18/10): 7:13

Time (2/24/11): 5:06 No wonder it felt so much fucking harder this time – I did the deadlifts before the pullups by accident.

Coworker Challenge XIII

Another well-attended go-round this month, with a bit of old school returning – back to the two minute squat event, instead of the 50 squat-thrust race. There was general mutiny at the suggestion of doing 50 burpees with a pushup at the bottom.
