Who Dat Say Dey Gonna Crush 14.3?

Why am I using New Orleans’ speak? Hell if I know … probably for the same reason we use a fleur-de-lis … just go with it and quit worrying about it. Jeez!

Today was the joyous day of CrossFit Openness. Specifically, 14.3 and beautifully designed couplet of ascending deadlifts (weights and reps) and box jumps.

There is just something so fun about this combo. Don’t get me wrong, it freaking sucks ass. It’s just an old school, kick you in the teeth, pray to god you don’t drop dead afterwards CrossFit WOD. LOVE IT!

And we had some great performances this weekend. A special shout-out to Kendra, who absolutely does not deserve this shout-out because she was messing with me Friday and promised to bake me goodies and deliver them, with Cokes. To date, I have not received said goodies and Cokes. But, being the bigger person, I will still give her a shout-out … SHE GOT 5 REPS AT HER PREVIOUS 1RM WEIGHT! It was freaking AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

What form! Pretty sure Jenny no-repped it though, which was rude.

Rep? No rep? Hard to say since Kendra's napping while poor Wendy jumps!

One last shout-out to Big Mike, who absolutely destroyed 14.3 with 136 reps (that’s 6 reps at 315-freaking-pounds)! Awesome job, Mike!
