Another Woman Does Lynne As Rx’d!


Candace looking way too happy while doing an L-hold on the parallettes

A while back, we gave major props to Tamara for becoming the first CFO woman to ever do Lynne as Rx’d. Lynne is one of our benchmark workouts (5 rounds of max bench press reps at bodyweight and max reps of pull-ups).

Well this evening, not only did Candace join the “Lynne As Rx’d” club, but she nosed out Tamara for best performance of the day.

I was fortunate enough to witness both performances and it was extremely inspiring. Ultimately, the score doesn’t matter. It’s really about doing the workout as prescribed.

Post props to Candace and Tamara for their big-time performances in this really tough workout.

    Ladies, you rock, that workout is no joke!
    Daniel, I have a confession. You’re really starting to get on my nerves. Everytime I feel like I might just have it, I check the website, and there’s your stupid name. Couldn’t you have just stayed home and welded something cool tonight?
    In all seriousness, thanks to all those that set the bar so high, keeping the rest of us scrambling…

    You girls definitely rock. Nice work!

    I second Patrick’s thanks to all those that keep raising the bar. I’ve seen some crazy performances the last few weeks!

    you should have slaughtered my score…this workout is CLEARLY designed for tall people!

    Badass women you are… If I become 1/2 as strong as you two, I will be happy.

    5 rounds of BW Bench is no Joke! Candace you are awesome.

    For more BW antics check out the college gymnastics live at the Oakland Convention Ctr this evening.

    Daniel short arms are a major advantage on the bench!

    Wow Candace–way to go! Brains, beauty and brawn!! and you are still in recovery!

    There are some workouts that I think were designed for space aliens. Very strong space alients who happen to like crossfit.

    Lynne is one of those workouts. I like like I am as likely to do Lynne as perscribed as I am to walk on the moon.

    So way to go Candace and Tamara! You are stronger than I even ever dream of being! (Or you are space aliens..)

    Patrick: I decided that Daniel was a space alien a long time ago… Proof: it is a known fact that aliens love heavy metal and welding… I can’t be making that up!
