coach... not that I can do 7 at that pace, but 4 those that can, is amrap in 30sec of hspu at that tempo correct?... max of 7 hspu?...
just trying 2 clarify...

David X said...

Done at 0530.
CAB and movement warmup.

A1. 195x3 for all three sets.
A2. 205x2 for all three sets.
B1. 15/14/14
B2. 4/3/3
C. 15#

Focused on grip and technique and I'm pretty sure that this is a new PR. Also, I didn't tweak my wrist in any way.
The bench presses felt strong although this is shy of my PR.
First time swinging new 2 pd kb-very heavy and pushingthe intensity made it seem a lot heavier. Fought the want to pace these.
HSPUs sucked. Tough to keep tempo, when thi sis a weakness to begin with.
Ext Rot felt like I was back at the globogym for a minute.

rwcorson said...

A1. 163x3/176x3/181X3
Cleans felt very heavy this am.
A2. 182x3/201x3/208.5x3
B1. 15/16/16 first time trying to push KB down. Good for small #s.
B2. 5/5/5 The eccentric tempo was good, I got a bit too quick on the concentric in the last 2 reps of set 2&3.
C. 17.5x8, 20x8 I wouldn't have been able to do 1 more rep with the 20s.

Ryan B. said...

B1. 20,19,19
B2. 9,4,6
C. 25lb/arm, 30x6 each arm

not enough warm-up on the pc's. felt sluggish.

PTS said...

PC- 3x195, 3x195, 2x205
BP- 3x215 3x225, 2x235

KBS- 16,17,16
HSPU 5,5,4 - I stink at HSPU but the tempo made it even tougher.

I don't have DB's so missed out on part c.

Kyle F said...

A1. 185/185/185 (3 reps per)
A2. 195/215/225 (3 reps per)
B1. 15/15/15
B2. 15/14/13
C. 20 (Failed Left), 15

PCs felt weak and ugly. Should have gone heavier on bench.

Accidentally totaly ignored the HSPU tempo and just went all out. oops. KBS weren't hard I just couldn't go any faster.

rwcorson said...

As Unit said, @ 2020 you will only be able to complete 7 1/2 reps in 30 seconds if you have the right tempo.

Martin Altemark said...

A1: 3x80kg, 2x87.5kg, 2x90kg (1+1f)
A2: 3x80kg, 3x82.5kg, 3x85kg (PR)

B1: 18, 17, 16
B2: 10, 10, 8

My bench press is pathetic. Surprised that PC felt so strong today. Happy about that!

Could have gone faster on swings. Felt very strong on those. Obviously had problems keeping tempo on HSPUs right. Found it in last set.

Getting vaccinated against that new flu today with whole family so I'm gonna have to bail tomorrows double. Bummer, but that's how it is sometimes.

Joseph Weigel said...

Just started following the blog. Can't wait to get into it.
A1. 205x3 215x3 225x3
A2. 195x3 205x3 210x2
B1. 16,16,16
B2. 9,9,9
C. 13 lbs.
Tried to follow tempo on HSPU but my concentric must have been a little fast.

Chris Biles said...

A1. 145#, 155, 165 (3 of each)
A2. 165#, 175, 185 (3 of each)
B1. 14/14/14
B2. 6/3/3
C. 10# (8 each arm/set)

This is the first time I've gotten more than 2 HSPU in a row and I got 6! The overhead work is paying off!

Thanks, coach!

Warm up sucked this morning

Ali Loach said...

A1. 120#(2)/110#(2)/120#(2) - dropped it back for the second set because my technique for the first set was FUGLY. Def. should have warmed up the movement more....
A2. 115#(2)/115#(2)/115# (2)..should have tried for a third rep on sets 2 and 3....would have got it!
B1. 13/14/14 used a 55#DB
B2. 4*not to full depth/10*lowered to a sit disc on a 5# plate and it was too high to do the tempo/6*lowered to a sit disc only and followed tempo strictly.

Scotty Hagnas said...

I was feeling good yesterday, so I did my structural balance tests.
14" CG Bench press: 220lbs @ 30x0 (a PR, I'm sure)
Ext Rotation: 20lbx8L/8R; 22lbx5L/6R @ 3010 Few reps short here, and slight imbalance.
Lying Powell Raise: 15lbx 5L/ 8R; 20lbx1L/3R @ 3010 Well short here, and significant L/R imbalance. This was worse before, but I've been training this 2-3x week for several months.
Trap 3 raise: 10lbx8; 12lbx7 @ 3011 Fail @ 7 reps (shorting the ROM), this one's way off.

I have been adding in 2 sets left, 1 set right of the Powell raises, usually on day 1 and 3 of the WOD cycle. Looks like I need to up the volume of work here if I want to bring these #s up to where they should be. Any thoughts on appropriate volume?

I did a several month cycle of bringing my external rotation strength up last winter. I haven't done much maintenance work on it since then - interesting that my ext. rot. strength has not dropped off. My bench went up 30lbs at the end of that training cycle w/o a single bench training session.

PC: 165x3;170x3;180x2
Bench: 185x3;190x3;195x3 Felt a bit fatigued from yesterday.
KBS: 14/15/15
HSPU: 7/7/6 Failed last rep of 6th round.
DB Ext Rot: 20x8/8;22.5x6L/8R Actually got more reps than yesterday.

PWO: 40p/20c Dream Whey (delicious, by the way) + coconut water = greens

Lindsey said...

A1. 75/80/85(2)
A2. 75/85(2)/85(3) - should have sucked it up and pushed harder on the second set, think I could have done more
B1. 35# db - still working on proper form - 11/12/14
B2. 5/5/5 - spotter assisted
C. 10(8)/15(6)/10(8) - what a difference 5 lbs makes, could not make full ROM c 15# and no db in between so went back to do a third set at 10

Joel B. said...

A1: 170X3; 175X3; 185X2 (f3rd)
last recorded 1rm on pc was 185...appears that pr is out of date!
A2: 175X3; 180X3; 185X3
back up crusty barbell...about 2-3#'s light I believe...hard to tell on my bargain basement bathroom scale

B1: 15, 15, 15
B2: 6, 6, 5
first 2 sets a bit fast on the concentric

C: 15#'sX8 both arms; 17.5X6 left arm, 17.5X8 right arm

Sailorcrew said...

PC: 3 x 201, 3 x 210, 1 x 220
Bench: 3 x 201, 3 x 210, 3 x 220
KB: 15, 15, 15
HSPU: 13, 11, 10
ER: 3 x 6 w/25.

This was the first time I messed up on the protocol. I only rested 90 seconds between each PC and Bench and the tempo on the HSPU was off, just did amrap with no regard to timing.

Chris Fodera said...

A1. 170x3, 180x3, 190x3
A2. 195x3, 205x3, 220x3
B1. 15, 16, 17
B2. 5, 5, 5
C (L arm): 20x7, 20x8, 20x7
C (R arm): 20x8, 20x8, 20x8

PWO: 40gP (MRM shake), 10gC (mashed yams w/ applesauce)
50 min later: turkey deli meat, apple, almond butter

- Accidentally did an extra set of C.
- Probably could have gone heavier with Power Clean...definitely should have started heavier.
- Should have started @ 205 for bench. 220 for 3 was max effort
- KBS felt good; time was limiting factor
- HSPUs were tough due to tempo, but I kept a strict tempo the entire time.
- Left arm definitely weaker than right on DB Extension Rotation

I posted my workout earlier for the first time and I didn’t introduce myself. So I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself to everyone. I am a seventh grade teacher out of Binghamton, New York. For you guys that don’t know where that is it’s Upstate New York. I have been doing Crossfit for about 5 months and I started Paleo about 2 months ago to change my diet for the better. I am looking to go to the next level and I have an interest in competing in the Crossfit games at some point. I was introduced to Crossfit and OPT through my friend Dave and he suggested that I move toward this programming if I have goals of competing. I am looking forward to moving forward and continuing to become the healthiest person I can mentally and physically.

B1: 17 for all 3 sets.
B2: Couldn't quite get the tempo right. 8 reps for all rounds

C: 8 reps at 22 pounds. Got a little ugly in the 3rd set but ROM was good.

PC: 90/100/100kg (220#)
BP: 85/105/115kg(1) (253#)
KBS: 16/16/16
HSPU: 7/7/5
DB Rotation: 15/15/20# (6 per arm)

Caught one of my 2nd set PC's on my shoulder/bicep and bruised it up pretty good. Could have gone up to 110kg but my thumb was numb so didn't go up the last set. That will teach me not to forget the chalk next time. Pushed BP to the limit on the single rep at tempo. KBS and HSPU's were full range of motion and felt good. Kept good form on the DB rotations, I think 20# is pretty accurate at x6 reps without having to compromise.

Welcome Murdock! Ouuuuu

A1- PC - 225 x3 / 235 x3 / 250 x2

B1- Swings (70lb db) - 16 / 16 / 16
B2- HSPU - 5 / 6 / 6
C- 20lb [x6(L),x8(R)] x2

90 sec rest bw A's, 60sec rest bw B's... the rest was as rx'ed...
after doing c, I think I know where a HUGE weakness lies... compared 2 my 14in BP... another goat 2 work on...


Pfeifalife said...

A1. 242x3/262x3/286X2 (most likely started too light, but happy with outcome)
A2. +95x3/125x3/140x3 (again started too light, but last set was a tuff one)
*note, up to this point my back felt ok, it has been sore and uncomfortable for about a week but not that big of a hindrance.
B1. 16/16/16 (form was good and back was held erect, bending and hip, but this f*d my back up big time. with a fresh back i think i could have increased my turnover, endurance was no problem at all. power curve never fell off)
B2. 6/5/5 (felt like my cadence was good, did better on these than i thought i would, these didn't hurt my back at all)
C. couldn't do because at this point my upper right back is f'd up.

my right shoulder blade feels pinned to my back and my neck movement is limited right now...oh how i love this feeling

A1. 165 (x3)/ 175 (x3)/ 185(x2)

B2. 6/6/6

Ran out of time and will work on C later tonight.

Felt good, went a little lighter then I would have liked on part A but wanted to maintain the tempo. B felt great, especially KBS.

Erik Luber said...

A1. 3x60 kg/3x65/3x67

B2. 6/6/4
C. 15 lbs x 6/15x4

Cleans have feel a little sloppy lately, not receiving the bar high enough. Bench was really strong, I think 80kg was my previous 1RM. Shocked myself with the KB swings, never managed more than 10 in a row with 1.75 pood, think I can finally pick up the 2 pood. Totally assed up the DB rotations, should have watched the video again before going.

I was surprised with the weights on A1 and A2. I've been feeling really weak lately, but felt pretty good moving those weights.
