  • “Anthony, you’re right about Armando’s thrusters; none are to full extension. But I didn’t say anything during the WOD because, hey, it’s Fran and I’m not messing with anybody’s mojo when they’re trying to beat the gym record. I guess that’s where I draw the line when it comes to upholding the standard and letting an athlete slide. On a normal WOD, Underground (as most the members know) harps on form/range of motion over time/rounds. That being said, Armando put forth some serious effort and the trainers are considering it a PR and the gym’s best time (being that I held the previous record, I think I’m the one to decide whether it was better than mine.)

    If you live around Northern Kentucky or wanna drop in some time, come on in and show us your Fran. Bring some friends, too. We’d love to have ya!”

    Hey Rich, I wanted to quote/respond here incase you didn’t look back at the old days. I don’t deny the effort he put in, but locking out is the hardest part of the thruster. I’m just standing up for your record 🙂

    Also, I really want to come by and check out the gym! I moved to the Union/Florence area over the summer and didn’t know there was an affiliate nearby. Instead, the family got a membership at Urban Actives (right near you guys I believe). I’m a sophomore at the University of Missouri – Columbia, so I wont really be around until spring break or the summer, but I try to keep up with the posts where until then. My thumb is still a bit stiff/sore from dislocating it a couple weeks back playing football, but as soon as I’m back to the WOD’s I’ll bring comments and such here!

    But hey, while I’m waiting, tell me about your facility! How are you guys on equipment/space? Do you have some pictures or a virtual tour you could email me? Let me know.

  • Way to go, Armando! You worked hard tonight.

    Amy and I had some quality time working on our technique tonight. I felt good about it and passed my previous weight by 10 lbs.
    Amy will post for both of us- same performance.
