Strategy thoughts on 75# 94x:
Snatch fast until I can't snatch anymore.
1) Switch to c&j slower singles to shift load to arms, then back to snatch to shift more into legs/back.
2) or take quick 2-3 sec breath when needed and keep snatching in groups of 5-10.

Every second counts on this one and I am a sore puppy. Love to hear your thoughts on this. I'm on at 2:00ish.

Geoff Aucoin said...

That's a tough call, Brent, having a plan is good but don't over-plan. Keep rockin' the snatches for as long as possible, take 1 big breath and keep rockin'. I'd switch to C & J as a last resort. F%$k being sore, that's a non-factor.

All out. Kill this WOD, Brent.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Well I just did Brent's WOD #1 in a painfully slow time of 7:24, good for a solid 69th place!

Deads felt like 400lbs, so slow but I didn't put the bar down, runs were God-awful. I recovered quickly so it just shows I didn't have the gas this morning.

First OPT trench run of the year and I felt it!

Hixy said...

Not sure about the best strategy Brent, but I'd go with the 2nd one. I'm no crossfit wiz (yet).

I wish you the best of luck! Your performance will be kick-ass no matter what.

Rory Hanlin said...

Hey fellow Dawgs!

Sorry for the lack of updates from the Midwest quals, but yesterday was a hellacious day of three brutal WODs

Day 1 Midwest Quals:

WOD1 (heavy deads and CTBPU): 5:45

WOD2 (Thruster/burpee): 6:23

WOD3 (2k row): 6:58

These times put me in ninth place at the end of day one.

Day 2 Midwest Qual

30 C&J 135
450m run
30 Snatches 115

Time: 7:01

This time put me in third place at the end of the event. I'm going to Aromas! Ooouuuuuuu!!!!

I'll see all you dawgs out there!

Lastly, I'm taking the next 5 days and going on a backpacking trip in northern Michigan, so I'll be off the grid until the end of the week.

Great job Rory. Congrats

Brent Maier said...

I killed the last wod in 6:20ish. That time is holding up very well. Final 10 duke it out after lunch. All snatches and did the first 30 touch and go before I started breaking them up.

Congratulations Rory! Way to go!

Katrina Burton said...

All CTB unbroken

Need to increase that front squat weight! 135# was definately my 3RM weight. There was no room for increase.

Congrats Rory on qualifying to Aromas. That's a huge accomplishment. You really earned your holiday.

Rory Hanlin said...

Thanks Dawgs!

Signing out for a week...

Geoff Aucoin said...

Worked up to 240x3, got 1 rep of 245 and dumped it at the bottom of rep 2. Big part mental, maybe protecting myself a bit.

Did push-ups on parelettes instead of CTB's, saving them for tomorrow...

Did 60 sec of total time L-sits in 6 sets.

My word is phoofi; that workout was not that...

Geoff Aucoin said...

Looks like 240 was a PB for me. Sweet!

Steve said...


Chins never came off the bar

Brittany said...

135, 135, 135, 135, 135
Really worked hard at getting comfortable coming out of the bottom with power. Next time I will work to increase load.

Broke up CTB's - First workout with chest to bar chins ever

Laura said...


I'm sure that was my best for 3's
