Sumo Deadlift High Pull 95/65
Post time to comments:
Hello Everyone! I just wanted to post a quick recipe I made on the fly tonight. An asian inspired zucchini: slice one zucchini (or however much you want) into approx 1/4″ slices, place in one layer on a sheet of foil, drizzle with sesame seed oil, salt, and place under broiler for about 3 minutes. Keep an eye on it…in the last minute or less, sprinkle with sesame seeds and toast a little under the broiler. Quick, easy, and delicious way to get in the veggies. See you all Thursday night for Fran :)
Yummy! Thanks Jett.

for anyone interested in answering the question “seriously, what is the WORST thing someone could eat for one meal?”
That is both funny and sad simultaneously…
agreed. I was laughing, but then I was thinking “people actually eat these items”
Sitting in training…decided to do something productive…signed up for the Olympic Weight Lifting Seminar!

Yipppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Haley!! I’m SO excited for you. I *knew* you’d get it. Way to stick with it. Watching you work and work and work on those tricky DUs has been a real inspiration. DUs can be so infuriating and you dug in Haley! Honestly, that just made my day (probably not as much as yours, but still.)
Wish you were there Dina.
And yes the ones with the blue and white handles!
Congratulations Haley!!!! I’m so happy for you!

I know everyone has been posting recently about the influence about Crossfit and I’m jumping on the bandwagon. Having done Crossfit for about 2.5 months I’ve already seen gigantic improvements in my physical ability as well as my daily life. Everyone harps on how Crossfit changes you as a person but I think it’s something indescribable. I’m astounded by how feeling good about myself has changed my outlook and actions in life. When I started Crossfit I couldn’t imagine the days of doing an
Rxed WOD but somehow I’ve got there. I’m pushed my body to amazing limits and by no means am I planning on stopping. The paleo challenge allowed me to lose fourteen pounds and see that the food I was eating was slowly killing me, a little dramatic maybe, but it’s true! Thanks to everyone at the box, to the people that help me with my movements everyday and those I’ve never met because we all post our scores and push each other to limits we wouldn’t go by ourselves. I love this Hammerdown family, so glad I joined.
Right on sista!
Yay Darby! You are such a rock star in such a short amount of time. I love watching you workout. Keep up the good work. And seriously, do you need a ride?? LOL.
Rockin’ Darby. I am so glad you joined too Darby. Influences go both ways. I, for one, am so glad to have had the opportunity to get to know you. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience.

Great message Darby! I’m sure that every CrossFit Program thinks they have the best coaches and people in their box, but I’m pretty sure we do at Hammerdown!
We definitely do!
