    Okay, so I ended up doing “One Arm JT” on Wednesday night at 7:

    21-15-9 of:

    45# DB push press (instead of HSPU)
    1 arm box dips w/ 32″ box (instead of ring dips)
    1 arm pushups with the black band tied to the lowest pullup bar

    11:09 and my right arm was twice the size of my left arm by the end.

    Can anyone give me info on the saturday bike rides?

    Thanks

    That pic is wierd and awesome at the same time. Quite a complement to you, JJ.

  • Jeremy Jones

    Sat bike rides are meet at the gym at 7:45.

    Rides are long, but set up so that nobody gets dropped.

    I can’t answer about the mountain bikes (I have absolutely no bike experience what-so-ever).

    Hopefully Jan will chime in on this.

    I’m with Craig, that picture is giving me a headache because it is mind bottling. Did they use your specs to build the diablotron?

  • Mike Erickson

    I google’d their site and their blog for “Diablo”. Nothing. Seems they might have a least credited JJ for the really cool design. They call theirs “The Smokehouse”.

  • Darren

    mind bottling. Brilliant

  • Mark L.

    For my wife and me, it was mind BOGGLING, too.
    Mountain, if you want to see some stuff that will make you (and Holly) into a fiddler crab in no time, here’s one way (this is 1 pood–watch the digital counter in the background… you may want to fast forward):


  • Craig

    JJ provided the specs and worked with them to help build the Diablotron. They sent him a nice thank you email.

    The bike rides are organized and led by Forward Motion’s Jan Maynard (a DCF’r). They meet in our parking lot at 7:45 on Saturdays.

    You can contact Jan for more details at jenjanjayden@sbcglobal.net

    I will be there for the Rumble on Sat but My Holly Hero won’t be able to partner with me 🙁

    What shall I do?

    Hopefully there will be room for me on someone’s team?

  • Jeremy Jones

    Carry you can be on my team.

    (I also have an inside scoop on what the workout is going to be, so I might be a good partner).

  • Andrew

  • Nick

    Jeremy holding the workout back is totally mind bottling

    Today’s WOD with 53lb KB:

    14:09

    I though I was going to beat Darren and Bryan S, but I guess my brain got confused. DRoe beat me by 9 sec. Bryan by 39.

    At least I was able to do it with the KB. My wrists got bashed to sh!t the first round, but then I got the hang of them again. The first time I did this WOD was back in 2005 and I subbed 20 burpees for the runs (stupid sub, but I had no access to run). I did in just over 20 min.

    Free hand touching the floor each squat to make sure I was going low enough.
