20 min AMRAP
15 Air Squats
22 + 1 pullup (think its a Pr but not 100%)
20 + 11 reps
Off of PR of 21+1. Next time I will not go to failure on the push-ups so early. I should do 5-3-2 when I feel push-ups getting difficult. I have a little ways to go to get to my goal of 24.
20 rounds (PR). Up from 18 on 3/12/2012.
Air squats felt great and can be faster, push ups got rough in the last few rounds.
Thanks AmyLynne and Jared for the push.
16 rounds subbed one-arm push-ups on the reverse-hyper and one-arm ring rows.
Amylynne – I checked your results and it looks like that is a PR. And you KNOW I would tell you if it wasn’t. (-;

Hu Kitchen (www.hukitchen.com)
The trendy paleo diet—which champions the wild plant and animal meals of our heavy-browed, cave-dwelling ancestors—gets the fast-casual treatment at this 80-seat Union Square eatery and market dedicated to preindustrial, processing-phobic food.
Diet tags: Paleo, vegan, vegetarian, juicing
The scene: Office workers in search of a Subway alternative mix with postworkout yogis in the bi-level space. On the second floor—which recalls a tree house—flickering imitation candles cast a warm glow at Indonesian wood tables.
The drinks: An in-house line of juices ($8-$10) make for bracing midday pick-me-ups: The bright green, antioxidant-rich Demi-Verte (kale, cucumber, apple, celery, lime) blends cool vegetal tones with a hint of cider sweetness. Smoothies ($9)—like the brisk Cool Carrot, which combines the root vegetable with banana, mango, lemon and lime—and a short list of wine cocktails similarly balance Greenmarket flavors with aplomb.
The fare: A snack bar, shelves of packaged healthy foodstuffs and a hot-plates counter cater to the ’hood’s grab-and-go sensibility. Snack on a cup of fiber-heavy almond butter ($5), showered with crunchy nut-and-seed granola and glistening chunks of kiwi. A coconut-sugar-brined rotisserie chicken breast ($9)—tasty, though a tad dry—was overshadowed by the sides: Roasted, succulent pieces of pineapple ($3.50) dipped in rich cashews and an earthy mound of steamed rainbow chard ($3.50) dotted with onions make you wonder if cavemen were really that bad off after all.
Health-nut cred: A large TV screen broadcasts nutrition facts and gung ho admonitions like, “Get back to human!” 78 Fifth Ave at 14th St (212-510-8919, hukitchen.com)
10 rds +15.
Last time did 11 rds with push-ups from the knees for half of the rounds, so this time around just focused on full on push-ups. By the end was doing them one-at-a-time. Could barely hold up my coffee on the way to work but seem to have recovered a bit now
Damn, Amylynne..it must feel good to be a gangsta
First 5 rounds jumping negatives then ring rows. All knee push-ups.
I love Pete, and I love that he’s on Team Black!
37 more days…until our back to back wins!
80 Chin ups
160 Push ups
240 Air Squats = 480 Total Reps
I’m proud of me.
I’m going to go with 15+13 rx because I know SpeedDemonBaril was ahead of me by at least two rounds and I’m pretty sure she miscounted as well.
Either way, Im happy. PR of at least 3 rounds.
8 + 15
subbed with ring rows and pushups on my knees
Jumping pull-ups but all toe push-ups
Dropped to knees for push ups after a few rounds.
2013 goal is to do this completely RX’d.
15 + 5
Also Dave was wearing a 23 lb ass for anyone who missed it.
19 + 13. Awesome end to another office space type of day. Damn TPS reports…
What up Cindy! Knees & Rings, breaking pushups up – 5/5/15/5
12 rounds + 27. I could kick myself for missing those last 3 reps.
13. Ugh. PR is 19+5+10+5. Need Santastein to bring me new upper body next Chanukah.
Paige-I was the one wearing the weighted ass….Dave was wearing a weight VEST. And a baseball hat.
@Paige/Ang – HAHAHAH i died laughing when I saw that. That would make for a spicy kind of WOD

GHD Sit ups 4×15, GH Raises 5×5
Cindy 16 + 14
- pretty sure I don’t know how to count reps, LOL but just happy with my movements being done legit the whole way through.
11+10 rx. Pushups at a glacial pace and I flubbed the name game. Good job, good effort.
12 rounds + 5 pullups
630 PM. Good times.
Weighted ass. Weighted vest. Same thing.
15 rounds with 21 pound vest. Brutal but good conditioning.
15 + 9 rx
Up slightly from last time. Pushups killed me again

Push-ups became challenging real fast! And I gotta master kipping already!
15 Rnds Rx

14 rds rx’d
9 rounds rx’d, 4 rounds modified with jumping pull-ups, 1 additional jump pull up
Pull ups were my main weakness and a key focus area for me
