Well that just takes all the fun out of guessing now, don't it?

Joel B. said...

Cripes! My buddy lee snapped during warm up 2 days ago and the replacement is not here yet. I'm screwed. I'll try to splice and do my best. I ordered 2 so I'll have a spare from now on anyway. Live and learn.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Can I by a vowel?

My guess would have been Garage Crossfitter but there are no gun racks on the wall hahahahaha okay I'm just jokin'...

PTS said...

L-ups - 6 perfect form sets of 5
kte's- 20/29/37/44/52/60. 20-30 secs rest btw.
ghd- 90

du's-300 in 5 total rounds - 83/64/49/55/49. wanted 4 rds but the 3rd set crushed that possibilty.

pushups - 40/11/13 = 64
du's 60/22/29= 111
total reps =175.

humbled yet again. I consider pushups and du's to be strengths. There was just no power for the pushups after all the previous work.

Lauren said...

L-Pull Ups- Still very difficult, broken into 5s, dropped legs each time, and used as momentum on way up- but still progression from last time I did these.

K2E- Sets of 6s, practiced using kip, as apposed to the double kip?

GHD- 15, 15, 20, 20, 20

DU- 5 sets



Erik Luber said...

L-pull ups: 10/9/6/5
K2E: 30/30
GHD: 15/15 + K2E 20/20
DUs: 19 sets


My lower back was feeling extremely tight from yesterday, was debating not going. L-pulls and K2E seemed to fix that problem like magic. Could feel the GHDs aggravating lower back, so did more K2E instead.

Goal for the 300 DU was 30 every minute. First three rounds were garbage, took 11 sets. After that all rounds of 30 unbroken. Imploded on the push ups.

Chris Dunkin said...

L-up's: 6x5 on the minute
K2E: 4x15 1min rest b/t sets
GHD: 1x24, 3x23 1min rest b/t sets
DU's: 12,53,84,29,22,110pr

pu's/du's: 37/43,17/36,11/44

pwo: 30p/63c whey/refuel

broke the rope handle on the first set of skill work du's. AMRAP was nasty.

Brent Maier said...

Team, I've uploaded a few videos of yesterdays workout and one a few weeks ago. Looking forward to todays workout.

Yesterdays WOD:


Scotty Hagnas said...

L-pullups: mostly sets of 5, done on the rings.
K to E: focused on doing these fast w/o double kips
GHD: sets of 10
Double unders: think I mis-read this a bit. I did sets of 5 reps(woohoo!) unbroken; didn't count the reps if I couldn't make 5 straight. Got 17 sets for 85, but easily did around 200 reps total.
AMRAP: 40/9;11/7;8/4 Total=79
PWO: 30p/45c Chicken basil sausage, yams, applesauce

GHD: Used a ball as replacement, I think I saw Unit doing this
300 DU: Huge improvement here. I was able to complete these in under 10 minutes. The most I got straight was 30 or so


Total: 142

Lisa M said...

L pullups used light rubber band assist at ankle but concentrated on trying to hold legs up as much as possible. 9/5/5/3/3/3 the last sets of 3s i did with no assist and bent knees

K2E these absolutely kill my shoulders i am old and inflexible OUCH did sets of 10

GHD don't have one so have bosu ball balanced on chair not very efficient can't really use hams and gluts as you can in machine

DUs got my new buddy lee thanks Trevor at OPT!!! still suck at them but the rope helped best round was 47 finished strong with last three sets of 30s had some terrible moments in between. Still trying to find best location around my house to do these

9/34 PUs were deadly this round!!

Thanks Geoff i am looking forward to Monday!!!

dontpanic356 said...

LPU: 6 sets of 5

KTE: 15, 15, 10, 10, 10

GHD: 20, 20, 20, 15, 15

DU: Unknown number of sets. Best set was 38. Worst was 3.



Total: 157

I asked this before but got no response. How do you measure a jump rope for your height. Im 6'3" and I think the jump rope I use is too short, but I have no way of knowing. I might be looking for an excuse for sucking at double unders.

rwcorson said...

L pull ups-3 reps x 10 sets, worked on straight legs & feet above hips
K to E-15,10,10,10,10,5 varied grip
GHDs-13s, then 12, alternated btw Games standard & alternating single arm.
DUs-6 sets, wanted 4.
Push ups - 30,10,5
Both were tough.

Garage Crossfitter said...

-L-ups 6 sets of 5 strict reps
-KE 3 sets of 20 reps, 1 min rest
-GHD 6 sets of 15 reps, 30 sec rest
-300 DU: 60,70,84,55,35- 5 sets, should have been 4


DU+pushups= nasty combo, the muscle fatigue from pulling shoulders back for double unders, (which is the key to my success with them) really makes pushups difficult, the front deltoid was completely wrecked and my traps coming into this workout were tight from yesterday so the tension created from double unders made for a nasty headache....


OPT said...

Sub kipping pu's; 1:54 (in 7's)
K2e's: 8:11. Slow, chipped away (in 2's by end)
Du's: took 12 sets
Push ups: 11/6/4
Du's: 7/33/14
My shoulders are done

joey warren said...

l pullups
GHD situps

135 reps

Brian Maier said...

L-pullups: 5,5,10,5,5
k2e's: 15,10,10,10,10,5
GHD's: 30,25,15,10,10 (touched 10" box with both hands)

previous PR on unbroken du's is 75.

AMRAP: Total - 204
pushups: 40,20,16
du's: 18,60,50
pushups deteriorated quickly. 20 sec rest went by so fast. so pissed that I caught my foot on first round of du's. total could have been closer to 240.

Geoff Aucoin said...

L's in 9 sets, huge focus on legs.
K2E in 3.
GHD in 6.

Doubles in 5 - 1st miss on the 4th set so almost did it in 4. Finished with a minute to spare, arm was fine.

30/3 (f$%k), 12/52, 7/21. Made myself stop on the push-ups if I started pausing at the top.

Push-ups. Yeah.

Brian Maier said...

Brent: great job on the videos. I knew the shirt would come off in the 2nd round.

rwcorson said...

Step on the middle of the rope in the instep of 1 foot.
The ends of the rope should come between the armpit & the top of the shoulder. This is the end of the rope, not the end of the handles. If you are at DUs, use the armpit length (shorter). If you are still mastering the DU, go with the shoulder height length.

Evan Johnston said...

L-ups: first 20 sets of 5. Last set broken up

K to E: mostly sets of 10 until about 40 then last 20 reps broken up

GHD: sets of 10 all the way through.

DU's: had a heck of a time with these. Was going to attempt sets of 20 but ended up just trying to get through as large sets possible....ended up 10 reps short at the 10 min mark.

AMRAMP: total 97...Du's killed me, shoulders done.

Going to take few off as were travelling through the Pacific NW. Looking forward to coming back hard next week!

Joel B. said...

L-PU: 6 sets of 5. Knees above or level with hips but I can't seem to keep my feet up. I am still improving at least.

K2E: 15 on bar-no kip
15 on bar kipping--finally figured out how to kip with no double swing.
15 rings no kip
15 rings kipping

GHD: 4X20, 1X10--double hand touch on floor. pretty slow, but no tempo like 4020 or anything.

DU's: 50 (= old pr), 17, 55 (pr), 69 (pr), 49 (splice repair job broke...had to repair), 5(!), 45. Easily under 10 min.

AMRAP PU: 29, 15, 13
AMRAP DU: 40, 28, 39

Total: 164

Steve Smith said...

Only one workout today (ironically, after all the talk of doubles yesterday!).

L-Pulls: 3 sets of 10. FULL extension at the bottom, chest to bar at the top.

K2E: 10 kipping then 10 strict for three sets.

GHD Sit-ups: Not available here. laid parallel to a bench with feet wrapped around and hips on the edge. Completed sets of 10 at 2020.

DU - Five sets. Almost passed out on the fourth set. Not sure what happened.

Push-ups - 80/40/50
DU - 41/36/27
Total - 274

rwcorson said...

Dontpanic, my comment should have said, "if you are efficient at DUs, have the shorter, to the armpit length of rope."

rwcorson said...

Brian, nice work on the DU's.
Steve, your push up numbers are incredible. You are a machine.

Gord said...

15 set of 2. wanted all reps to be as close to perfect as I can get
K to E-
2 sets of 15
3 sets of 5 with 10 sec break
5sets of 3 with 10 sec break
did 18 sets of 5. I was very happy about this. as this is the most I have ever done in 1 seesion with out any back pain.
Skipping- took 13 sets to do the 300


pushups 41,19,15
Du 15, 7,5,

Geoff Aucoin said...

I did the double hand touch for the GHDs, too, just to add some spice. Ow.

dontpanic356 said...

rwcorson, Thanks for the reply. When I step on the rope like you said, the ends of the handles come up to about my sternum. I think I need a longer rope.....much longer.

Jefff said...

L-Ups - 10,10,10
K2E - 30,30
GHD - 15,15,15,15,15,15

DUs - 9 (48,34,38,54,18,45,27,35,1)

Push-Ups/DUs - 34/8,13/8,12/30

It all fell apart during/after GHDs. Major headache during/after GHDs. Felt strong before GHDs, and wasted after.

Brent Maier said...


L-ups: 4 (8/8/8/6)
K2E: 4 (22/15/12/11)
GHD: 2 (60/30)
300 DU's: 8 (69/19/42/45/36/36/36/17)

Damnit, I just ate and I forgot to do the AMRAP.

rwcorson said...

Dontpanic, no problem.
My suggestion is to start with a longer rope (if using one you can shorten, buddy lee) and progressively shorten it as you improve.

Laura said...

Yesterday's workout in early am: 27:45 Very slow--wallballs were the main problem. I have to jump a lot to hit that height. Squat cleans slow and steady--getting much better, tough weight for me (115# is max 1RM).

Today's in PM:
L-ups: sets of 3
K to E: no fast kip at all, big slow swings: 10/10/8/8/7/7/10
GHD: 9 sets of 10--gave me a headache and was dizzy.
300 doubles: 7 sets, was aiming for 6 but knee pain came back, so I had to roll out in between sets: 58/25/50/50/50/44/23

Push-ups/Du's: 30-44/12-33/13-25 First set of pushups was really easy, then a bit of a drop off.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Steve, that's a s%$t load of push-ups!

Pfeifalife said...


L-ups: 6 (5/5/5/6/5/4) wasn't pushing too hard, really focused on form.
K2E: 5 (15/11/15/11/8) experimented with recruitment pattern for movement
GHD: subbed the weird sounding situps with knees splayed flat and feet anchored 1 (90)
300 DU's: 14! (11/13/20/23/19/30/16/23/29/20/16/31/13/16) would have good rhythm but jumprope is heavy and arms/shoulders would get tired and fail

47 / 32
21 / 19
17 / 14
Total ~150

feel like my DU's are really getting better. limiting factor now is endurance and fatigue. my jumprope is heavy and beats me up after a while. prolly need to order a buddy lee jumprope but don't want it breaking on me. tried rouge fitness jprp's but are too short, even when let all the way out, plus if the handles aren't held parallel to the ground when used they tend to get held up. too light to feel.

shoulders and arms were fatigued going in, and afterwords were completely f'n smoked.

getting over the cold and today felt better. feel a lot better both physically and mentally.

Lisa M said...

Holy crap some of you big dawgs pushup numbers absolutely blow me away i don't even think i can count that fast in 20 seconds - wow amazing job!!!! definitely shows me i got a looooong way to becoming a big dawg.

Leighanne said...

oops, apprantly i can't read instructions, and documented the time of the first 2 parts instead of set/rep format, am re-posting for personal future reference:
pull ups - in sets of 9 then sets of 7, very short rest in between
k2e's: 10, 5, then 2's; took a few sec rest in between sets; these still need work
GHD's: 35/25/10/5/5/5/5 about 5 breaths rest in between sets
du's 12 sets (first 2 were 55/45 then down hill from there!); took conservative rest, used up almost full 10 min.
Push ups: 11/6/4
Du's: 7/33/14

had an appt to get to so warm up was very rushed.
