It was a GREAT WEEKEND to be a Silverback

This weekend Erica and DJ both cleaned, squatted and pushed their way to a 3rd and 5th place respectively at the “Forever Young” 35 to 44 challenge.  The GIC, not so good (see below).

10 WOD's between them, they EARNED that sugar based brain killer.

My hand on a Bible this is the most motivating picture of the day.  Notice how I have clearly impressed the judge with my wheezing and clipboard technique.

Sometimes it’s  a moral victory;  So I finished 19 out of 20, and here’s why I am OK with that.  I was running late making sure the 9:00am workout was covered.  Garrett came through at the last minute and I turned the car around, unfortunately I missed the “suprise” 4th WOD.  So yes I beat someone who had an entire WOD head start in points.  At least it makes it sting a little less when I think of it that way.  Erica and DJ rocked, and hopefully we can fully deploy the Nation to compete next year Jim, Oliver, Judi, Vaughn, Donna, Renee you listening.

    Yes! More competitors next time. Another round of comps will be at the end of the year (Sep-Nov). Thank you to everyone who came out to cheer us on. And thanks for the coaching Matt.

      No OHS but lots of shoulders. Jerks, shoulder to overhead, thrusters, db ground to overhead. Of course that doesn’t mean the next round of comps will be similar at all.
