BW: 175
Bench - 16
DL - 31 (I lost my grip. I should have used a reverse grip so I could have done more reps)
Overhead - Skipped this one for shoulder reasons

Bonus: No pull-ups for me. 49.5" on box jump.

How do you entertain a bunch of MAJs in the gym? Ask them to see how high they can jump onto a pile.

Props to DB for stickin' it to me this AM! We've said it many times before, but working out with a partner pays huge dividends. Not only does it make it more fun, but the healthy competition forces us to go well past what we would do on our own. I would encourage you guys to figure out how to incorporate these dynamics into your platoon PT will only make you better, both physically and through sharing hardship together.

NM, I wouldn't call it sticking it to you...I have no doubt that going last on all the events helped out a lot. Payback from the thruster workout. However, a win is a win and that is 2 this week.

For everyone else, I echo NM's comments. Having a partner/partners holds you accountable and makes you push harder. Which in turn makes you better. Healthy competition fosters growth. With that we should celebrate the successes of our group. Congrats to Mark R on a pull up PR today. Setting a PR on the last exercise of a workout like today's really means something.
