Used 265lbs

(I'm training in my garage gym and only have tens)

Sweeney said...

Part I: 7:45

Geoff Aucoin said...

9:58.

Minute slower than planned, I was hyped up and warm for this one but the deads got horrible really fast. Grip actually became a factor due to the increased thickness of the cheese-grater-like bar. Dips felt great in warm-up but were out of sync until I faced the other direction during the WOD.

Great times already, boys. WOOF!

Throat very dry today and shins bloody after this one. Deads were almost straight through except for a few quick regrips. Dips started in 8's, then to two 4's, then the last 2 rounds were 4 quick sets of 2.

Chad Action Brandt said...

Part 2 - 12:09
Knee still bugging me, but thought I would give this a go.
laps 3,4,5 were slow because knee was pinching, laps 6,7,& 1/2 were on stride and way faster.

Sweeney said...

Part II: 12:59

Cumulative Time: 20:44


These 30" stumps just couldn't churn any faster.

Did the run in hilly Arbour Lake so I had a few climbs and a few downhill rests too.

Wicked day for an outside run!!!

Lower back is starting to feel the wrath of this morning's workout. I originally thought tomorrow's WOD might be a little rest, but I'm beginning to think otherwise.

Brent Maier said...

Part II: 12:24
Part I: 8:19

Part II Notes: Ran this on a dirt track with my GPS watch. Set my virtual partner to keep me on pace with an 11:59 3k goal time. I stayed at pace until my 4th lap. From there mentally it became a struggle. Earlier I contemplated running this on a treadmill but chose get outside while the weather is fair.

bso said...

Oh yeah.... rest/recovery....
Jumped in the snow shirtless to ice the back after the deadlifts. Took 21P/45C whey/maltodextrin shake. 135 minutes later started run. (btw... run was mostly dry today, but a few puddle hurdles and some snow/ice). About 40P/40C after run. PFC 1 hour later.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Total so far: 23:03, pass the sun dial.

Recovery and strategies was supposed to involve more stretching and some hot and cold contrasts but the day hasn't panned out well for that. I did fit in a nap between the WODs today. Post WOD nutrition was 30C/30P for #1 and 40C/30P for #2. Eating TONS of fat in other meals.

Gonna be at OPT for a 6:45am #3 WOD tomorrow as there's no GHD at my hall. Watch out, suckas!

Grant said...

F-all warm-up, got up at came to OPT (good WOD for empty tummy), I could barely bend over I'm so sore from yesterday so the BE's were brutal. Missed one double (#30 of the round of 30) but BE's too broken, this could be a ~5 minuter.

deejay said...

part 3 - 9:47 - pathetic
total - 34:08 - even more pathetic. I need some sleep, feel like I am getting sick again.

OPT said...

Bernie...warm ups are relative to the WOD at hand...higher CNS demand requires longer warm up...the older you are in training age matters in that as well...i.e. the older in training you are, the longer warm up needed to get the CNS awake...its also based on time of day for WOD, sleep, food before...many things matter to what the warm up is like...maybe i'll write a piece on this next rest day for everyone...cool?

Geoff Aucoin said...

Good God, Sweeney, you're on fire man!

DJ, you want some cheese with your whine?

Lauren said...

part 2- 12:56 elbow river route, april 6th pm.

part 3- 7:13
couldn't get DU rhythm, lower back is super tight.
the foam roller is my new bff.

PTS said...

part 3 - 6:35
BE's slightly broken
missed a few DU's early

total after 3 : 27:55

I don't have a rower, still trying to get access to one for tomorrow.
If I can't whats an approriate sub, considering we will be doing 75, 95# SDLHP in the AM workout?

caboose said...

OPT -

A piece on warm ups and how to identify what types of warm ups go with what types of WODs would be freaking sweet.

deejay said...

Depends what kind of cheese you are offering, Geoff.

SeanG said...

only have access to a regular back ext. any suggestions on an appropriate sub...maybe a weight to add to them?

rwcorson said...

5:18
all B ext thru

Running total-24:27

PWO-20g protein/30g CHO
roller & trigger pt work, hot/cold in an hr & epsom salt bath tonight.

Jefff said...

I forgot to post my running total: 42:31.

I thought the first one to 40 minutes wins. No?

Deejay - I have absolutely no sympathy for your "even more pathetic" 34:08. Sorry.

I'm with Deejay. I'm geting sick and need sleep too!

Part II (Apr 7th)
Time = 11:15
Great run time Rob C, I could have used you in front of me today.

Total Time
27:45

Geoff Aucoin said...

Post-WOD was 20C/30P and then I ate again 60 min later (20 blocks of fat in that meal!)

Didn't score any significant nappage today, damn work, but I did get some rest in and plan to stretch after I get warm in about an hour. Stiff and sore already so tomorrow is gonna be a treat.

Some awesome times out there so far, boys, keep it up.

DJ, goat cheese.

Bernie said...

OPT... Thanks for the reply! The warmup has always been confusing to me. Man that would be awesome to read your knowledge on warmups!!

Anyways on WOD a day behind
Part 1 11:20
part 2 13:22
Man I always felt really fit on croosfit but you guys all blow me away. You guys are monsters!

Michael FitzGerald said...

Part 3 - 4:28. Not sure I could be even 5 sec faster. Only on DU fraction during the round of 10. All BE's stright through.
Total = 23:27

Rob Sifton said...

Part III
time = 7:11
Rest between II and III was only 1.5 hours, tough to fuel in that size of a gap.

All D/U's straight, Back ext were very broken. Just on fire right now. Tomorrow will be fun.

Total time= 34:56

bso said...

Day 2: 8:16
- 50s were both unbroken
- back ext went south real fast... I pushed every rep I had, but it burned real bad
- doubles were just atypically awful
- hope I can turn things around tomorrow

Total: 33:03

Rory Hanlin said...

Part 3: 7:58

This came out of no where. All DU were unbroken, BE's were horrendous. I don't think I'll be able to get out of bed tomorrow...

Total Time after April 7th

tania said...

just jumped on the bandwagon today, with no time to make up yesterday's workouts.

April 7
6:46
-could have made up some time on both DUs and back extensions (broke up the second set only)

Geoff Aucoin said...

Looks like my run time got lost in the shuffle yesterday but it was 13:05 on the treadmill, incline of 1.5.

Grant said...

7:29
was resolved to not break the BEs but lumbar would not have any of it. Broke 30s & 20s into 10s.
Kathleen did it after me & got 7:07

April 8th

18:43

This felt hellacious. I definitely did NOT fuel properly in preparation. I visited a local CF affiliate yesterday to get ahold of a GHD to do the OPT WOD. I was the new guy so I had to do the CFHQ WOD from monday before I did anything else. So I ended up doing two WOD's yesterday. But foolishly I stuck with my original fuel plan for the day. Today I felt it. Lesson learned...


Total: 46:02

OPT said...

tania, welcome, 65# is weight for the met con today for ladies...have fun...ask ?'s as needed

Geoff Aucoin said...

19:09

Yup, read it and weep, boys. I warmed-up for a good hour prior to this beast and I CRASHED on round 2 of the SDLHP. There were moments where I thought I was going to sit down and quit this sucker so I just put my head down and aimed to go under 20. I have no clue what happened, this is my new task to discover, but I just had my ass handed to me. I suspect there will be some solid times in the sub-15 range today.

Running tally - 48:47

DJ, I ain't go behind no schools with you any time soon.

chris said...

Beasts: Fun to keep track of all of you these last couple of days.

I really like the addition of the fueling to the posts. Can someone help me out with how you're measureing carbs for sweet potato in zone blocks, or grams? I've seen 5 carb blocks/ cup, which would be 45g carbs/cup, but wanted to get some confirmation. Also, OPT, where have you been? Still doing .com wod's? Haven't seen you post in a while.

Lauren said...

17:20 subbed #65

Definitely a mental battle this morn.

Sweeney said...

Part IV: 19:39

Holy FEK!!!!

I completely under-estimated this one.



Cumulative Time: 45:16

rwcorson said...

19:54 ouch! I paced the 1st 3 rds too much, not enough reps & too much resting, lesson learned,
Total time-44:21

Brent Maier said...

Geoff, Sweeney, Rob, thanks for the words of encouragement! I'm headed out to do this one now and I'm already not looking forward to it. It's going to be a grinder for sure.

Rob Sifton said...

Part IV = 32:04

My time for this event alone is the same as some of your total times. Humbled to say the least.

Total Time = 67:00

Time to rest... for a while at least.

rwcorson said...

part 5 - 5:40 that hurt, I should have picked it up about 100m sooner. Started to kick at 350m left.
I'm wiped out. That was a great test!
Total time - 50:01

Part III: 6:44
Part IV: 17:52 (1:27/3:26/4:05/4:28/4:24)
Part V: This evening
Total: 45:19

Part IV Notes: I didn't have a target time in mind for this but I took Rob's advice. First round straight through. Second round, I started adding breaks just before failure. 3 through 5, I broke each set up evenly and tried to keep the mind in the game.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Pt 5 - 5:32 on the button

Felt really good, could have pushed harder but tough to gage for such a new distance.

Total-53:19 - I'm finished. My word is 'humba' and that's how I feel.

Nice job out there, boys; Sweeney and Mike, you guys are on another level this week!

Total time - 45:19
Looking forward to watching paint dry tomorrow.

Gord said...

part 4- 19:05

I did not want to read what anybody wrote before this one so I avoided the internet all day.

I was like Geoff others and wanted to call it off in round 2. every movement went into sets of 2 and 3 during round 2 on.

tania said...

April 8

Part 1 - 21:20
Based on the disaster that was my last Fran, I went with #55 (50% bwt) instead of #65. Sumos were relatively easy, and the 4th round of thrusters were the best. I think this thruster problem is all in my head. I should have ground it out at #65 even if it would have taken over half an hour... thoughts?

Part 2 - 7:08
Was hoping to go sub 7, but started off to hard to keep it up.

rwcorson said...

Grant, dropping is ok, but lowering chin is out. Great pull ups today.

I was mentally not prepared for the row tonight but kept pulling hard enough to keep the total time under 5:30. I started at a 1:34 avg pace and should have kept that up a little longer to draw out my average. Buckle on the right shoe came loose so I lost about 3 pulls which may have cost me a little.

Great job everyone!

Garage Crossfitter said...

Deadlift wod Part I= 8:08
I had sub 730 in my sights but I got mentally weak on last 2 sets of ring dips. All sets of dips unbroken except last 2. None of the deadlifts were unbroken but reps were fast with short breaks. Breathing was under control entire workout.

No part II for me today per OPT advice.

Garage Crossfitter said...

April 7th
5:24
back X unbroken
double unders a few mistakes, i was dizzy coming off the back x machine. no recovery needed afterwards, complete control of breathing entire workout.

Garage Crossfitter said...

April 8th Part I
15:42
I did the first rd in 2:00 then i started to pace myself. I did all sets of 5 for sdlhp and thrusters. At the end of rd 2 thrusters my 40$ walmart bent bar broke, the sleeve fell right off the right side so i had to take time to slide that back on and for the next 3 rounds i couldnt drop the bar and had to make sure all the lifts were level or else it would slide off, that def cost me some time but thats ok...
3 min afterwards of flopping around on the ground, within 10 min back to normal.
