Night Gone Bad

Last Friday night was everything I ever dreamed of and more. I honestly cannot think of anything I'd rather being doing on a Friday evening than CrossFit Hell's Kitchen Disco WOD. Yes. You read that correctly. Disco. WOD.

2fer Wall Balls 20/14
KB Swings 32/24
Lateral Box Jumps 20″
Power Snatch 75/55
Hand Release Burpees
This is done “Fight Gone Bad” style.

3 rounds of 1 minute at each station with 1 minute of rest after completing all 5 stations.

I Rx'd the workout (!!) and let me tell you, those 24kg KB swings are HARD. I ended up with 182 reps but only because I'm pretty good at busting out box jumps and burpees.

I can never remember my reps so I've started writing them on my leg. Unfortunately I can no longer read my first round but I added everything up and had someone doublecheck my math right after the WOD.

Before we snatched and burpeed to the YMCA, we worked up to our 1 rep max for the sumo deadlift. Kate was my partner. I love working with her because she pushes me and tends to agree when I say just throw some more tens on there. Her husband Dom stopped in (he goes to an earlier class) and he encouraged us to work up to 185 lbs. The pictures below are at 155# and 165#. I swear my form is better than these photos indicate.

155# felt so heavy
getting neurotic about lining my legs up correctly

I was sticking my tongue out but instead it looks like I'm choking
We headed over to Concrete for a CFHK happy hour and I had such a great time hanging out with everyone who came. I was recently appointed Social Director and I was psyched that folks wanted to go to the little gathering I had organized. Friday was an awesome day.


  1. They couldn't have picked a more qualified Social Director! After social chairing Ivy, this is a natural next step. Congrats!

  2. Thank you! I had appointed myself originally but now it's actually my responsibility. I'm working on getting folks on board for different theme WODs. I think I could totally rock an 80s sequin prom dress while doing pull-ups.
