''I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.'' - Henry Rollins

Torri 8:56am
Great quote Lucas!

Beth W 9:30am
Love the quote, Lucas.  
Check out Heather's shoulders in the farmer carry.  Nice example of good form - this is harder as weight increases but something to always remember, especially for me.

Craig M 9:53am
Hey CF Friends!

I usually don’t plug website or push supplements on people, but I thought I would share this one today just in case others at the box were curious about post-wod recoveries.

I just ran out of Progenex yesterday and have been doing a little research on a new recovery because Progenex, while it tastes amazing, is just so dang expensive. I think I’ve talked with Joe about this dilemma.

After asking a good friend of mine I came to know at CrossFit North Peoria about some suggestions, she recommended 1st Phorm. Not only is she a good friend, she’s a stellar athlete. Some of you may have seen her at the State Fair competition. I believe she took first in the individual females RXd.
Anyways, as a dietician and CF competitor, if she is willing to put her name on this product after scrutinizing the label, I’m down with it. She also informed me she’s willing to answer anyone's questions related to the products or nutrition in general.

Jolene 10:57am
Thanks for the input Craig!

Elisha 11:30am
Hahaha love that picture, Jen!

Hannah 12:56pm
Hi Everyone! I have had a couple of requested to ordering more women's tanks in a different color. If you are interested could you please post, along with what color you like. The link is below. From a design stand point I think the following colors would work the best: True Sun, Turquoise, True Azalea, and Pink Ribbon.  

I will place a order for the most liked color! Thanks!¤tColor=HO

Kerris 1:49pm
Fun day as always!  Thanks to Beth K and Tod, I know it wasn't easy getting me over that bar! And to Michelle, thanks for pushing me, typical!!  Breanne, you are doing awesome on those rope climbs, keep it up!

Elisha 2:06pm

Breanne 3:00pm

Fun time at noon! Nice work everyone on all the movements! You all were awesome!

Tod 4:01pm

Woohoo - way to go Alaina!  5 am is brutal!  Nice to see you on the leaderboard again.

Beth W 8:10am
Congrats on that 5AM PR, Alaina.  Kudos to anyone whose joints move that early :).

Beth W 8:13am
SO to Hannah who is so graceful and powerful with the heavy lifts.  Last night was super impressive!

Beth K 8:31am
SO to all the ladies that are heavy hitters in our gym! There are a lot of gals that are getting very strong and lifting large loads! Keep up the solid work-you are all amazing!

Beth K 8:34am
We also have guys in the gym that are turning into beasts! It's been awesome watching how strong you all are getting-a little more each day! Time and effort has certainly been the payoff!

Beth W 11:31am
Amen Beth.  I haven't seen one person in the gym who isn't giving it their all and getting stronger every week.  Even a single pound progression soon turns into 5, 10, etc.  Such a blast to watch the growth!

Meredith 12:29pm
Hey Amber, you totally made it under the time cap...great job girl!  Thanks to Beth K & the 5AM crew for helping me finish the WOD this morning. Also a SO to Alaina for waking up & big Joe for accepting the challenge. Keep up the good work today!
