Steve Smith said...

Hello, everyone. This will be my first day back after 5 days off recovering from SFAS. Going to follow the late March cycle and will consider compeeting in VA sectionals in preperation for regionals. Looking forward to training with you guys again!

Goal one from our December post complete - get selected to become a Green Beret.

Once again, Coah, thank you.

PS: Gary - did a little google searching when I got back; congratulations on qualifying for regionals!

C. 342

Forearms tired from the start tiday. Cut ant/post part short by two sets bc time constraints. Not happy with DUs, but got a horrible headache halfway through and that hurt performance.

Pete said...

Can't wait to hit this up!

Good luck to everyone this weekend!
Let all the hard work and preparation make it happen!

Good luck to everyone that is competing this weekend.
Realize that you prepared yourself to the best of your capabilities, now it is time to let go, confront your fears and express yourself to your maximal potential.

rwcorson said...

Good luck to all the Dawgs competing this weekend.
Give it all you have and enjoy!
Congratulations to Robin and Steve.

Gord said...

Did part 2 of yesterday- posted under yesterday.

DL 225
GHD raises- 4 sets unbroken

Mike@CFCochrane said...

A- 205
B1.Completed all reps, played with pad placement.. noticed a huge difference with one notch. Kept close to keeping tempo on all reps.
B2. First sets did AMRAP at tempo: 15/7, then at tempo but multi sets:7,3, then just did all reps at able tempo for rest.
C. 371, 50 was biggest set. Finding it hard to keep focus while skipping lately... mind drifts then I get whipped- wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't found out about these ropes with the steel cables.

Garage Crossfitter said...

A- with 240lbs, felt great

rest 30 sec

B1 unbroken, 3 sets hands at sides, 2 sets hands across chest

B2 unbroken

rested 90 sec

C 340

I messed up and paced myself for 10 min of DU. either way, these sucked today, shoulders toasted and bounce was all over the place. time for rest.

Garage Crossfitter said...


Covino24 said...

A) 220#
B1) Unbroken
B2) "Strict-ish"
C) 221

Baltoe said...

The weekend team challenge lived up to its hype...don't work on the DU's...and they'll be front and centre! Thanks to Cory, we didn't get blown out on just one exercise...If I had had to watch another heat, I was thinking booking out...Hadn't done any OHS, never mind with 95#'s! However, as Chad Action Brandt said, the atmosphere was infectious, and the testosterone statrted to flow. A good primer for the Masters in May.


Lisa M said...

Congrats to Robin, Steve and good luck everyone this weekend go kick some serious ass show them who the Big Dawgs are!!

Any suggestions for sub for DUs calf is fubar'd need to rest it.

Nice Work Steve!

Erik Luber said...

late march


A. 86 kg
B1. 10 reps/set
B2. 10 reps/set
C. 460

Reduced reps on B, as I am not quite at 15 GHD raises yet, and my abs are pretty sore from the 121 GHD situps on Tuesday. DUs felt OK, used a bit of strategy: start high then a linear taper down to a fixed amount and then just keep cranking out sets at that fixed amount. Rep scheme was 60-50-40-30-20, then the rest were all sets of 20. Picked 20, since I know I can always do 20 Ub, no matter how tired I am. Hit rope once at the 5 min mark.

Mike@CFCochran, if you find that your mind is wondering while skipping, then maybe using a steel rope might not be challenging you sufficiently during training...sure you might get higher numbers, but I don't think that is really the point. After 5 min of DUs it takes me every ounce of mental focus I have left to jump/spin the rope/count at the same time.

Late March:

Congrat Robin!

Good luck to all DAWGS competing this week end, make sure your fuel is appropriate and available before, b/t and after events, keep your spirit, focus and effort well dose until the very last seconds. Make sure your guear is ready 2 days before (tonight). Keep your mind clear.

Late march:

ruth said...

Can someone please tell me what 1010 and 2010 means?


Michael FitzGerald said...

Ruth...see the FAQ

Ruth said...

Thankyou Michael.....thats exactly what I was looking for...just couldn't find it on my own.

Jonathan said...

Late March
A. 260# on DL
B1. subbed 95# good mornings for GHD
B2. unbroken
C. 413

Lindsey said...

I'm in the same boat-ish. I hurt my knee last week and am not able to jump yet. Although it may be a poor substitute, I plan on biking for 8 min. I may do sprint intervals or just try and keep a challenging pace for the time, depends on how the knee is feeling at the time. That's my only thought... If you come up with any other ideas, feel free to share!

Good luck!

bmizzlle said...

Great job Steve!!!

Lisa M said...

yeah i hurt my knee a month ago and it is just getting better and now my calf is screwed getting old really bites!! i was thinking i might do 5 min of amrap wallballs as they are a serious goat of mine and shouldn't be too hard on the calf, and many of the sectionals have included them so thought i would tackle that. Thanks and heal fast!!

rwcorson said...

A. 252.5
B1. as rx'd
B2. 10/5,13/2,10/5,15,15 I got my kip going in the last 2 sets.

C. 431

Heavy Evy said...

Just listened to CFRadio 108, good interview PTS, makes me want to clean out may garage, and buy some equipment.

Geoff Aucoin said...

A. 231 for all.
B1. All unbroken (arms behind back, ditto, arms crossed, ditto, ditto). Form breakage near 14th/15th rep on last 2 sets.
B2. All unbroken; last 4 sets with pronated grip, which felt better.
C. 441. Different stragegery today; went with max sets with longer rests between rather than many shorter sets of say 25-30. That was working really well (1st 100 unbroken) until I got an insane headache halfway through. Had to start breaking more than I wanted later on with shorter rests.

Corson? Gotcha!

Stephen Flamm said...

Early March with a few subs to work through aspects of this weekend's Sectional at the Arnold...

Part 1:
OHS, 5 x 3 @ 95
HPC, 5 x 3 @ 95
SJ, 5 x 3 @ 95

Toes-to-bar, 10 x 3
Sprint starts, 1 x 4 with assorted sandbag combinations up to three bags totalling 110 lbs.

Everything is as fast as ever, and I feel prepared to perform up to my potential. Thank you James, and each and every Big Dawg, for excellent training and support. On a side note, I represent just one of over a dozen athletes at my affiliate who have been following OPT in preparation for this weekend. We are all ready to represent this community and program. I'm looking forward to meeting a few of you this weekend...

Pete said...

A 245
B1 Unbroken
B2 Unbroken
C 371

- First time getting all GH raises unbroken. Arms across chest.
- Toes to bar are feeling awsome these days. Sets of 15 all felt very strong. (Pronated grip with kip)
- Double-unders have improved significantly, but now my right calf needs a day off.

Ali Loach said...

Saw Cuskelly today. Ran to and from the appointment because I knew I would be taking it easy today.
Back at it tomorrow.
Shoulder feels pretty sore but I'm optimistic that it will be on the upswing starting tomorrow.

Marie Rochat said...

Jay said...

Sorry guys I wrote this same post on yesterday's workout I was a day behind.

Hey guys I've looked around and I guess I'm just stupid or can't find it in the search function. I currently don't compete in anything I'm just a Dad who likes working out and pushing myself. I've followed the basic powerlifter/bodybuilder workouts for years but my goals have changed. I want to get leaner and more athletic and these are the types of workouts that will help get me there. My question is what workouts should I follow if I never plan on competing? should I just pick one and stay with it each time or vary between the two on a given day? I don't want to mess up the programming so any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Mack Lar said...

Early March:
All completed as RX then worked on Sectional specific movements.(KB Snatches and jumping over the 20' box. Stretched, foam rolled, and ice bath. I'm ready for this weekend. I feel a thousand times more prepared this year than I did last year. I plan to leave it all there and be a positive representative for OPT. Thanks Coach for all you do. I'll post as the weekend moves along. See you guys next week!

Eric S said...

Late Marcher.
A1. 225lbs, as rx'd. Felt good.

Chris Fodera said...

Late Marcher


A. 290#
B1. All unbroken
B2. All unbroken
C. 414

- PreWO: 16g BCAA-G
- PWO: 40gP/45gC (Shake: ReFuel and MRM Metabolic Whey), 8g BCAA-G
- 60 min later: chicken, asparagus, apple, almond butter

A. Felt fast and smooth all the way through
B1. Felt really smooth today. Was getting to 90 degrees upright without any lower back tightening.
B2. Was swinging a little, but managed to control it by engaging shoulders on the way down and keeping reps slow.
C. Went for a couple max sets and then tried pacing myself. This wasn't that smart of a strategy since I was gassing and dizzy quick. Next time will try timed intervals throughout...maybe Tabata-ish. I definitely think I can hit 500 next time.

Saw the surgeon for my torn right meniscus today. Surgery on the 23rd, followed by 3 weeks in straight leg brace, followed by 4 months of Physical Therapy. I am hoping that I can come back faster than that though. The good thing is that the surgeon thinks he can stitch the tears back together instead of just smoothing them out which should help me in the long run.

Michael FitzGerald said...

A - done with 261
B1. Unbroken - hands on low back
B2. Unbroken - happy with this

Chris your description of B2 didn't sound like a 1010 tempo. I kipped the hell out of these suckers and I'd say I'd be lucky if I was 1 second up and down.

Lindsey said...

A. @95 - felt good
B1. Unbroken
B2. Broken but these were much better than usual. Was able to do 10,5 ea round. Used to struggle to get 4. Grip and core strength improving

Lisa M said...

A1: @165 easy
B1: unbroken
B2: unbroken !!!!!! huge improvement here these felt easy today

No DUs because of stupid calf so did 16# wallballs amrap in 3 minutes - 65. I am god awful at these my lats/shoulders etc get fried so quickly any tips would be greatly appreciated I am only able to do about 15 unbroken and then i want to start crying :( Being 5'4" makes that 10' a long ways up there

Chris Fodera said...


I see what you staying slow, I just mean that I didn't allow my lower body to swing behind me at the bottom, which it was doing unintentionally when I was trying to knock them out as fast as I could.

It is basically the same issue I have when I try ButterFly Kipping PullUps...I am going for one or two reps and then my body seems to be swinging out of control.

Advice possible without video evidence?

Tyler Smith said...

Everything felt fast and smooth today, no soreness or pain anywhere... runs felt especially fast and easy. Nutrition is the only factor this weekend. Wish us luck Dawgs!!!!

Paul Klein said...

March 7th

A. Felt good
B. Felt good

I only did 4 sets of 100% running

I don't know about you but I tried several methods for the over the box 20" jumps. Laterally ended up being the fastest for me (17 seconds / 12 reps). I tried jumping forward and turning around and jumping forward again, this started very fast but I got wicked dizzy and it ended up taking 20 seconds. Thoughts?

A friend of mine brought a rope to work and we set it up for some climbing practice (I don't have the space for a rope at home). We only had 15' of ceiling height but it worked out ok. I'm no spiderman but I think I will manage.

Any thoughts on the sandbag run?

Again..thank you for all that you have done for me. From the direct comments regarding videos that I have posted, to your excellent programming, you have given so much. I hope to make you proud this weekend.

Good luck this weekend everyone.

Aaron said...

Early March-
Part A- Felt good
Part B- Felt good

Only four sets of 100% Running.

Mack Lar said...

I think its going to depend on how wide the 20" box is. The one I played with today was too wide to jump laterally for consecutive jumps, so I did the jump forward, spin around and jump forward again. I got dizzy as well and questioned how that might affect the rest of the WOD. I have a Rogue Fitness 20" box that I'm going to play with tomorrow. I'll let you know when I see you saturday.
I don't think that theres any secret to the sandbag run. It's going to be 2 sandbags inside of a dufflebag so it should wrap nicely around the back of your neck. Then run like hell! I think that WODs going to come down to seconds so there wont be much room for anything but hypoxia.
I'll be looking for you on saturday. Best of luck.

Brian G said...


I qualified for regionals last weekend and wondering if following the late March programming would be appropriate for now.

Regionals will be May 28-30 for me.

Any input from others is welcomed also.

Michelle said...

Wanted to say best of luck to those of you competing in Sectionals this weekend!!!! The rest of us will be thinking about you and sending positive energy your way!

Rory Hanlin said...

Good luck to all Dawgs competing. Give 'em hell

Steve, welcome to USAJFKSWCS. Let me know when you get down here and we can link up for some training and laughs.

B supersets: went fine, although wasn't able to do the toes to bar very well on account of a torn up hand
C 288; so close to breaking 300

A. 260#…screwed up here…meant to have 270# on the bar (rounded up from 267…60% of my best DL 1RM)…but put on wrong iron plates (2×5# & 2×2.5# instead of 2×10# & 2×2.5#)…anyhow, deads felt strong and fast…

B1. UB, 10+5, 14+1, 13+2, 10+2+2+1…man, I find these tough!
B2. all sets unbroken and fast

C. 487
