21-15-9 reps of:
225 pound Deadlift
Well, "Diane" came a day late for my prediction! Some great performances last night. Everyone bettered their 2011 score on the "Fran ladder," and our Team put up some good numbers to find ourselves in 9th this morning (with many performances to go, of course.)
My favourite part yesterday: it's no secret, even among other Boxes, that our judging is as strict as it gets. Last year, visiting competitors were surprised to see their scores go down when they entered Catalyst; this isn't some perverse pleasure on our part, just our philosophy of black-and-white movement standards. Chest-to-bar pullups are especially hard to judge, and I was happy when several athletes called "no rep!" on themselves even AFTER I thought they'd hit. Way to go, Green Army! Be proud!
