  1. bench press: 205 (failed at 210),
    last time was 195 on 01/20/2012
    Deadlift: 325
    last time was 310 on 11/21/2011
    I did not have a failure rep, so next time I should be able to go heavier

  2. 255lbs on bench (should do more. I made too big of a jump
    470lbs on deadlift…it felt good…and like Peter said, I’m saving some for next time

  3. 160 for the bench press. I made a big jump up so I had to back it down. I’ll have to try it again another time.
    245 for the deadlift. My form still needs some work. I wonder if I could have gone up another 15# or so if my form was consistent.

  4. My first crossfit workout! (many thanks to Shannon for taking on Jennie and I…)
    Bench: 80lbs
    Dead lift: 120lbs
    Looking forward to my second class!!

  5. Deadlift_Max @225# PR (significant leap in weight from the last time I wrote down my max which was 145#) Thanks to Moises for jumping up my weight and for the technique chat.
    Bench Press_ Max @75# (not actually my best attempt but ran out of time and just settled for this weight)

      1. Thanks Merritt!
        You KILLEDDD it on deadlift!! Congrats!!!
        See you tonight at 6 – reunion!! 🙂

  6. Bench – 185
    Deadlift – 245 (probably could have added 10lbs more but technique started fading.)

  7. BP-up to #95
    DL-up to #135
    both PRs, but my DL form still needs work, confirmed by my sore back!
