    great work to everyone that came in today and battled through R.J. !!! most did 3 rounds and found that was more than satisfying. for those that are “cherry picking,” it is important that you know that we as trainers will never make you do anything you really dont want to do (unless you’re just stubbornly avoiding working a weakness, WE WILL MAKE YOU WORK ON YOUR WEAKNESSES!!!). if you are not comfortable doing todays wod as prescribed (or unable) then we will scale appropriately. most folks did 3 rounds bc that alone took close to an hour. we are not unreasonable as trainers, we realize many of the hero workouts are epicly long and difficult. we will work with you to find a scaled down version that you will be confident and comfortable with. It is your job to tell the trainer any concerns our limitations you feel you have and then an appropriate plan can be devised. One of CFATL’s many strengths is our ability to adapt and be flexible (good pun right?), while still giving clients quality workouts to maximize their time spent in the gym. we are here to cater to you, so come in and allow us to do so.
    Alan Y, 51 and change on today’s wod as RX- a testament to hard work, and great nutrition! lots of heroic performances today. . . R.J. would be proud

    My hats off to those who battled through and will battle through this workout. I’ll be lifting, working on my weaknesses. Also, I bought some new knee socks that I am very excited about. You can thank me when you see them. I am looking forward to doing tomorrow’s WOD with the morning crew. I’ll be in my hero t-shirt and my new camo knee socks. They are awesome.

    As prescribed, 48:46. This is higher than my Murph time from over a year ago by about five minutes. This is a horribly brutal workout.
