14 LIFTERS-12 PRS!!! Don’t feel too bad for Chris and Steve, they both pulled over 400 even without going for PRs. A couple things I really loved:
All the ladies going well over 200 lbs.
Reggie hitting his goal (plus a little thanks to some metric change plates)
Sara nailing 280, especially as the warmups were feeling heavy.
SAFE MISSES! Pushing the limits without any injuries. Brendan keeps a perfect flat back on every lift!

Finished of class with a celebration of Tom A.s birthday:
46 Pullups
46 Ring Dips
No time component, but every break in a set incurred a 5 burpee penalty

    Congrats to everyone who hit PRs – that is an amazing collection of records when you look at the board. Especially the girls! CFDC is made up of some kick ass women: Not a girl in class under 220, and the 220# was posted by Joanne her first time ever deadlifting! Also, rock solid job Sara at 280# – 300 is yours for the taking. And, while I may get in trouble for divulging this, I should point out that Steph is a mere 15lbs away from DL-ing twice what she weighs!

    And Happy Birthday once again Tom A.

    Well, I had my own DL contest with myself … 255#, same as the week before Tom announced this challenge. Think I need to add in some posterior chain work. So many weaknesses, so little time.
