Nate - 12 + 7 KBS
I will do Annie later today.

Sweeney said...

5:15 unanchored sit-ups.

Really wanted to be sub 5min, but a couple of trips during my first round of DU's and a few breaks during the sit-ups just didn't allow it to happen today.

Maybe next time.

SeanG said...

terrible at double unders...

i'l practice them prior to the WOD, can I sub in something else for the actual workout?

SeanG said...

should I just do this one from crossfit calgary

As many rounds in 20 minutes:

5 clapping push-ups
10 Sit-ups
15 Squats

rwcorson said...

Sean G
If you are having trouble with DUs, don't sub or switch WODs. This is a perfect time to practise what you are weak at. This is how you improve.

PTS said...

5:08 (huge PR)
previous PR was 6:44 on 12/10.

Sean G: I agree with rwcorson do the workout and get better at the skill.

Hey guys, is there a video or .pdf of Rip discussing the new deadlift technique discussed yesterday?

Rory Hanlin said...

Did Nate today.

13 Rounds

Catching up because I was in the field.

SeanG said...

ok...talk to Mike at work and did as followed...


practiced double unders(did max reps in 5 continous minutes)

then did the WOD as follows...

18 inch box jump
unanchored sit-ups (got all reps but super slow)

9:56

feel pretty good about it, need some work on the speed of movement for the sit-ups

Chad Action Brandt said...

5:27 PR
I kept the same format in old PR of Ab-Mat anchored sit-ups.
Sweeny and PTS my hats off to you guys, well done!!

rwcorson said...

5:14 I felt okay, but just didn't have the zip to beat my PR of 4:55.
Missed 1 Du in rds of 50 & 40, anchored sit ups, strait thru. Under 4:50 is my next goal.

Geoff Aucoin said...

5:31, PB is 5:23. Anchored the feet today, those felt better but missed a good 4-5 times on the doubles so that sunk me. D'oh. Jumped the 60" box a few times after for the first time so that was cool.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Oh and I did Nate yesterday but I actually posted it on that day.

Wink wink.

bso said...

6:54... 2 seconds slower than Oct 6, but I know that the situp standards were raised today. I used to just touch the dumbells with finger tips, but this time I made sure to slap the opposite side of the dumbell on each rep.

40, 20 and 10 were unbroken for doubles.

Now I just gotta get faster at those situps. Although I can't imagine cutting 1:40 off my time.... you guys must look like hummingbirds.

deejay said...

6:43 as rx'd (PR) - Was hoping for much better. Sit ups need work...

Mack said...

6:07
Sits up came to a grinding halt in the 30 rd. No misses on DU's

-My first sub 10 min Annie. I'm actually pretty happy with this.

Gord said...

Brent - I saw a video on crossfit or crossfit journal a while ago that had Rip going through the set up. I'll have a look and if I find it I post where I found it.

Rory Hanlin said...

Impressive times guys,

Geoff- 60 incher! Congrats!

EvanJ said...

5:41, could have been a little quicker on the sit ups

rwcorson said...

BSO,
I'm curious, what do you think is. different about the sit up standard today? I thought this is the standard.

Brent Maier said...

Time: 7:25 (unanchored) *PR*

Last PR: 8:20 (anchored 12/10/08)
First PR: 20:37 (6/10/06)

Double unders are getting much better. With Anchored situps, I think I could have beat 7 minutes.

Thanks Gord.

Todd Dyer said...

Time =6:28

Gord said...

Brent-

I found it- on the crossfit main site go under demo's, look under powerlifts, there are a couple good ones, but the one I think is best is the deadlift set by Rip

bso said...

Rob,

I raised my personal standard on the situps. Touched the "toe side" of the dbs every rep rather than the heels of my shoes... this ensured that I came up to perpendicular every rep.

unit said...

the 60" box... holy hell!!! u must be like a human spring loaded contraption.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Ha, me good at engrish...

Sweeney said...

I'm hoping for an early post tonight. i want to sit and stew for a few hours before going to bed...

Any guesses what's on tap for tomorrow?
