Did every other set regular kip and the UB ones were butterfly.


All of these were regular kipping pullups cuz of the vertical plane.

My cert was awesome the crossfit instructors were amazing. I learned so much :) Great to be back on the OPT.

C1: 5x60, 4x60, 2x fail (stopped)
C2: 1st set very very broken. Second: 3x fail in a row at 19. Didn't even try third set.

My arms and my shoulders were so totally ripped to shreds during the final presses that doing the second-to-final set made people look at me very very strangely at the gym (public none-xfit gym today). Apparently my grunting wasn't appriciated.

Between pj/pp/press set, I powercleaned the weight from the floor (did pullups in the rack).

B1 95,115(very light)
B2 2 sets unbroken

C1 95,105
C2 2 sets fast and unbroken..

I am not too sure why my back cramped like that...30 min later its still very tight...ideas?

First day I got to workout in our basement gym :) It was great! My 10# bumpers from Rogue haven't arrived yet and I only have a pair of 5# plates and 2.5# plates before the 25# bumpers, so I had to make do with 60# for the press.

Nice job on the 85# for multiple reps on the press Lulu!

My coach, BK, is going to Calgary this weekend and I know our entire box will grow from his experience. Like OPT, he is a constant source of inspiration. I'm sure the energy and information this weekend will be off the charts!

Felt good with push but not so much with pull. I continue to struggle with pullups, especially chest to bar. My hands are pretty messed up right now and I feel like if that is bad then so goes the pullups. I'm not sure if there is anything else I can do other than keep trying?

One of my clients stopped in and gave me the weight vest so I had to try it out. Big fan of weighted pull ups.

Brad said...

Disclaimer: I'm new.
I will be at the SDAZ sectional at the end of March, and I'm struggling to find a way to prepare myself to peak at the right time.
I've been following various CF sites for a couple years, and this will be my first post. I'm very impressed with this sight, the wods, and the community in general.
I started this sat with "Nodar", and was completely humbled. And again on Sunday.
Should I continue to follow daily, or should I be a week behind?

Failed on last rep of presses. The pullups were very challenging to do unbroken for the last two sets.

Agree with BK, great programming! I left the gym completely wiped - could not have squezed much more out of my arms.

My nervous system is completely wiped after this WOD. I started a little heavy on the Push Jerks and gave it all I had to keep progressing. All of the pull-up work was relatively easy and explosive.

Man this WOD hit me like a ton of bricks about an hour after I was done.

Sleep is my priority after this, especially with tommorrow being a double! Oh lord.

I was not happy about my performance on CTB 20reps on feb 9th so I decide to get a massage to my external rotators cuff did some specific strengthening and today's where so strong. Really happy about that!!

Ridiculous numbers again, you never cease to amaze me.
Lulu and Katrina wonderful work ladies

dontpanic356 said...

Ill be back on the current WOD soon. Trying to play catch up after a few setbacks here. Good to see everyone dialing it in for the competitions. Can't wait to see the results....


OPT said...

Brad, the current plan will peak based on volume and intensity changes for the end of March...i'd suggest finding something real soon and sticking to it...the dawgs you see that have done well on here have been doing this for over a year...so jump in and see how it goes and give feedback as needed

A1. Started too light, but ended about where I should have. Need to work on a quicker transition with my feet...it seems slow to me. When I concentrate on it, the weight feels lighter.
A2. These felt good and the tempo was just right. Would have liked to go higher in weight, but it wouldn't have been possible today w/out kipping.
B1. Need to work on pinching my shoulder blades at the top here.
B2. All felt good...concentrated on working my butterfly kip.
C1. Would have liked to start a little heaver in hindsight.
C2. Last set was a little challenging because my grip was toast. got them unbroken, but I was regripping that bar like it was cool.

I wish I had started a little heaver in each of the overhead portions. I would have liked to push my limits in loads and have that evident in the # of reps completed.

My right shoulder was a bit sore during the fist few sets of push jerks, so I stayed conservative. For the push press I meant to jump to 110lbs. for the third set, but forgot to load the weight on becasue I was too absorbed in getting my hand taped for the C2B chins. I wish I had not messed up becasue I would have liked to try 115lbs or 120lbs. For the last set of C2B I literally fell off the bar with one rep to go in the last round becasue my grip was just toast. By the time I got to the 20 kipping pull up sets my grip was exhausted. My torn hands were starting to get tender with each reps. And I was worried about re-injuring them. i applied fresh tape over them before every single set during the rest period. My hands made it through alright without anymore bleeding or ripping, so I am super happy about that.

Pressing felt pretty good today pulling not so much - pullups were tortuous, right shoulder and hands were factors today.

Everything felt strong today. I haven't jerked even moderately heavy in months, and these felt light. Used a KB on the foot for the strict pull-ups. Did butterfly pull-ups for C2, as our bar doesn't allow chin-breaking vertical plane. A good day.

Started too light on A1/A2. Jerks felt great. Pressing ran out of steam on the third set of push presses. Pullups felt very strong. Hardest part was keeping the hands from tearing on those last 3 sets!

My sectional qualifier is on March 6th. Based on James's comment that this plan will peak for the end of March, I am going to go back and follow the wods that were rxd for the February group. So starting tomorrow I am going to start at February 3rd and follow the workouts until the qualifier. In hind sight I probably should have done this a few weeks ago. Anybody have any thoughts on this?

Paul Klein said...

Correction make that January 27th not February 3rd.

C1: 95(6),105(6),115(6)
C2: UB, did not finish last 2 sets of p/u's.... ripped hands.

Stephen Flamm said...


I'm considering that as well, as my Sectional is the 7th. The other option that I am considering is sticking with current programming for the next three weeks and simply adjust the volume/intensity during the last seven to 10 days to mimic the Feb. crew's tapering, maybe even taking the workouts straight from the Febber's last week during my last week.

I would be interested in reading James' recommendations.

Paul Klein said...


Keep me posted on what you do.

I don't have the personality to ramp up the intensity on my own. I need to be told what to do. It looks like taking the wods directly from the feb crew should be pretty seamless.

Happy with jerks, as 105 is a 5 rep pr... sad, but true. Getting much, much better at jerks and push press, although strict pressing is still my nemesis. Although pullups were all broken they felt really strong and C2B were better than last time for sure!


Megs said...

Oh... figured out a much better placement for dumbbell for the strict pulls during the rest, hence the jump in weight and reps.

Michael said...

B2.all unbroken, last set had pauses

This WOD was every bit as nasty as I anticipated. Wasn't running at 100% today (gut issues may be leading to lingering injuries?) and I was really concerned with injuring my neck on the A's and B's. Wrists, elbows, shoulders all screaming after this...

A1: Kinda disappointed with the push jerk, it felt heavy in my rack position and that played a factor. Really hoping for 225 but just felt heavy today.

A2: Wore a 20lb vest plus used a weight belt for whatever else. All pronated grip except for last one was supinated. Good tempo, held a little too long at the bottom for last rep of last 2 sets.

B1: Happy with the push press, still felt heavy in the rack and tough on the wrists coming down. 3rd set there was quite a large press out on the 4th rep.

B2: All unbroken, really really happy with this. 15 seems to be my threshold for sets, once I hit 20 my grip fails bad.

C1: Just trying to stay alive here. Presses were hard.

C2: Happy with first set then grip failed.

Glad there was no legs today because they were super fatigued for some reason. Upper body smoked though, great work out.

Geoff Aucoin said...

Unit, seriously, take a break. You've earned it.

Note to anyone; you only increase the weight if you get the upper number in the range so the weight remains the same, in today's case, if you only got 4 or 5 reps.

If the perscription for the weight was 4 or 6 reps it would make sense but it's 4 TO 6 reps and you only increase if you hit the high number...

Jeff B. said...

I have a diet question:

I started cleaning up my diet around 4-5 months ago, and have cut out all carbs that are not a fruit or vegetable. I am eating lots of carrots, pineapple, strawberries, and banana's, with almonds and (insert protein - chicken, turkey, HB eggs). And I am dropping a lot of weight fairly quickly. I keep my protein intake 1g:1lb of body weight each day, and try to eat 45%protein/30%carbs/25%fats. I started cleaning up my diet and OPT at 75" / 209lbs / 24yrs around 16% bodyfat. I am currently 188lbs, after 132 days around 11-12% bodyfat. I feel like eating only fruits and vege's to get my fill of carbs isn't right (I don't hit the grain portion of the food pyramid almost at all). And I would like to be more like 195-200lbs for sports. Any input or references you could point me to so I could research better on my own would be great. (I'm pretty much strict Paleo currently).

pretty much a disaster WOD for me. On the 4th set of PJ I caught the weight behind my head and tried to save the rep but fell backward...the weight fell on top of me and I bashed my head off the ground...though I bounced right up...after people rolled the weight off me...the weight did drop directly on my quad which is very sore now...

After that I took it easy on the amount of weight...however I did mess up the rep scheme for CTB and KPU...oh well...

Pretty happy about the 2 sets of unbroken CTB's, did them butterfly style(weren't pretty but I didn't leave the bar), but its weird how my other kippings styles go to shit the more I work the butterfly, shoud probaly just focus on one method at a time.

Rest was not as rx'd after chins in 'C' in sets 2 and 3 because i was dealing with my messed up hands...

This work out was brutal for me. My wrist started hurting during the push press and hurt my reps on the presses. I stopped at 4 knowing I could have done more. CTB felt really easy and quick after the weighted pull ups and did the chin over verticle after the chest to bar. My hand tore a little on the first round of C2 so I broke them up after that.

I have had some popping problems in my left shoulder, and have been working on rehabbing it. My overhead lifts are therefore going to be lighter than usual right now, and form concentrated as much as possible. But I do find that I have very weak shoulders and this is an area I'd love to improve on, and I think it may be the origin of my problem.

Kipping felt great today, really had a great rhythm to it and I have made a great improvement in the past 2-3 weeks on my kip. Strict felt good too, probably could've gone 45-55lbs.
