090403 FRIDAY – BIG NEWS!

diablo%20crossfit%20darren%20flag%20south%20dakota%20big%20cock%20country%20hat.jpg

Why is D-Roe so sad? Because he won’t have the gym all to himself during the middle of the day anymore. . .Starting Monday April 6th,

Diablo CrossFIt will be open from 6am until 8pm EVERY WEEKDAY!

That’s right folks, the gym will be officially OPEN all the times of the day (even when there isn’t any classes going on). That means if you want to come down to get a workout in, practice some pull ups, hang out, surf the net (we do have free Wi Fi), read from our free library, use our microwave, take nap. . . or whatever – now you can!

Does that mean you can come and workout whenever you want? Technically it does, but this type of training is more for intermediate to advanced athletes who don’t mind working out by themselves. We still prefer that everyone “gets some” at our stellar classes whenever possible!

Workout:

Deadlift

5, 5, 5, 5, 5

Bonus mini metcon to follow.

Post loads to comments.

    Nice pictures today.

    Darren – Great Pic. Absolutely classic.

    Jordan – You make the same O face at bat and during the deadlift. But I noticed it looks like that swing was a strike 😉

  • Mark L.

    My coworkers will be greatly annoyed with our new schedule (especially if I leave the door to my office open after mid-day). Maybe I can burn some incense without causing a building evacuation…

  • Shannon S.

    Great workout this am- it’s been a long time since Carry and I have done heavy lifting together. That girl is strong! I maxed out at 5, 95# thrusters and I think she was up to 105#! Also… nice hat, Darren. I seem to remember it being in our custody until “someone” won it at a family white-elephant Christmas present exchange (although- you wear it so well 😉

  • Stavros @ Diablo CrossFit

    Heavy DL’s….thanks JJ.

    For the record, I’ve done give or take 100 x 275lb. DL’s in the past 5 days. I’m really looking forward to more, honestly I am.

    Did “Linda” yesterday at open gym, I did it at 180#, although I’m not sure I weigh that much now. So, 270# DL’s, 180# BP, 135# Cleans. My previous PR was 29min @200#

    26:34 as RX’d, new PR.

    I was trashed, the bench press wrecked me way more than I thought. Most of the DL sets were unbroken. Cleans were solid until last few sets. Looking forward to my Sub20 goal by the end of the year.

  • joRDAN K

    DL’s at 0600:

    225×5, 315×5, 365×5, 385×5, 405×5

    Metcon after: 2 PR’s
    1:28 500m row
    :15.3 sec 100 m row

    feel free to beat that last one!!!!

  • Craig

    Great Linda time Stav. I dread that wod. Weighed myself yesterday: 221. Brutal Linda for me.

  • Miles

    This is probably my favorite picture so far.

  • Carry

    I just read yesterday’s comments…..BOOBS? Dave? You’re gonna pay for that one.

    “Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life”

    OK…what movie is that from?

  • Mark L.

    It doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world.

  • Damen

    I’m excited about the new schedule, now I possibly won’t be alone for “damen’s 2pm class” . oh, and 250 squats yesterday= using the handicap rail in the bathroom to sit down today

    930 class- Beth and Jaz both PR’d today with #190 deadlifts! Strong is beautiful!
    Vicki and Shar worked together today and pushed eachother to the limit today. Great teamwork, girls! Thanks for the push Stav and Bryan!

  • Stavros @ Diablo CrossFit

    First of all. I’m one proud husband, for many reasons, one of them is seeing Jasmine pull a 190lb. DL today at the 0930 class. Awesome job babe!

    I did a double-WOD at 0930

    “Nancy”
    12:30 as RX’d (I did 21 OHS the 1st RD, oops!)

    Then I visited my old friend…

    “Annie”
    7:34 as RX’d

    I did 45 DU’s in a row to start, amazing. So stoked!

    Oh, then I stopped by DCF at 4pm while on a bike ride with the kids for some DL action.

    5x 365#, failed on 405#. Good times.

  • Damen

    Is there an award for worst deadlift form?

  • Nick

    What are you trying to say? I didn’t work out today

  • Jordan

    Rodil post ur adress. I’m on board! Don’t worry I’m not gonna use it later to stalk you….I swear…..

  • Rodil

    Hi Jordan – here’s my address:

    8627 Shamrock Place in Dublin. My house is at the end of the court.

    I plan to leave about 9:45 am. See you then.

  • Mountain

    225×5, 245×5,245×5, and 265×5. I only did four sets because I’m a wuss. And because Jeremy showed me video of my form on the fourth set, and it was ugly. Not Darren/Damen ugly, but ugly.

    Sorry, Jordan, but you only did four sets. If you can do 405×5, then 225 is a warmup set. It is not your first set of five. I didn’t count the 135 or 185 sets I did, and you shouldn;t count 225.

    Finally, did Jackie this evening with Jeremy. He got 6:42 (1 second PR), and I got 7:09 (15 second PR). She may be your girlfriend, Craig, but she keeps ending up with me.

  • Damen

    Nick, ask JJ, I think I’ve got you beat

  • Nick

    I dropped my weight 100 plus to work on form…. I don’t think this is a good contest

  • Nick

    Nice Stav keep up those DLs
