Palms tore in the fourth set and couldn't grip the bar in the fifth. Sore has hell but not the worst I've ever had. Should be ok in a couple days.

Really bummed because everything was unbroken up to that point and doing strings of chins has always been a weakness and I was owning them this morning.

Sit ups and squats were slowing me up but they were very manageable.

Any Big Dawgs in evergreen, Colorado? I'm heading that way today and it looks like it might be the only city in America without a Crossfit Affiliate. I was hoping to get at least one workout in at altitude that wasn't bodyweight only.

Anchored situps always slow me down. Each set of 25 took at least 60-70 seconds.

3:14- lots of singles, stayed on hands & toes
3:03-pu:10/3/3/2/2- breaks on hands &toes at top.

All other movements unbroken! Pullups went great, expected these to be the weakest link but turns out it was the pushups.

Didn't keep track of each round, total working time was 22.18.

1. All UB
2-6. All UB except pushups. Broke to sets of 5 after 3rd round.

All unbroken....surprisingly, situps were the hardest. Quads started cramping, so situps were slower than usual. Probably lack of proper warmup.

The push ups were the limiting exercise. The difference in times was due to the longer breaks between pull ups and push ups.

PTS said...

Don't know if anyone is up for up it but I created an ESPN group for the NCAA tourney. Complete a bracket and join.

The group name is: OPT Big Dawgs.

1:43, 1:48, 1:51, 1:52, 2:01, 2:08
Total Work Time = 11:23

Went straight into each exercise right after, except in the last round. Had to take a couple extra seconds before the pushups in the final round... my arms are exhausted.

I tend to be pretty conservative when it comes to workouts that say UNBROKEN. Usually take alittle too long so that I can guarantee myself I will make it. Went at this one with a different strategy... told myself to go immediately into the pushups (those tend to me my weakness) right after the pullups and if I have to redo then so be it at least I will learn my boundries.

1:27/1:30/1:36/1:47/1:50/1:52

Pull-ups: chest to bar
Push-ups: chest to deck
Sit-ups: anchored

Chest to bar pull-ups were super easy, I felt extremely light today, push-ups and squats were easy. The only thing that slowed me down were situps

Stephen Flamm said...

1:49/1:53/1:35*/1:48*/2:00*/2:28*

* rounds 3-6 were performed without squats. Still being very cautious with the knee even though it feels pretty good.

I hate "Barbara", and this wasn't much better.

Didn't notice the 2 min rest between sets until Gord told me after round 3. So first 3 unbroken WITH NO REST & last 3 unbroken WITH REST as RX'd. Thanks Gord!

2:00/2:20/3:19 no rest up to this point

rest starts now 2:03/1:59/1:50

DU's 20x10

K2E 10x3

WOD2 Snatch Setup (4 Pulls): All power snatches...
Burgener Warmup
60kg - Easy
85kg - Got it 2 inches off floor and brain said, "ahh, hell no".
80kg - Felt heavy but solid
85kg - Solid
5 min rest
85kg (187#) - Solid after the wifes 3,2,1 go.

Notes: Practice tonight was just to see how well the body responded to jumping to near max snatch (92.5kg) weight with little rest. It's a start... Felt strong tonight on OPT portion of the workout. Cut down the k2e's down to 3 sets vs 5 to save lats and abs for this weekend.

Situps were anchored with abmat, and got very slow by the end, but everything was unbroken, with no rest between movements other then the transitions.

Feeling a little more chipper today

2:10/2:05/2:52/2:56/2:53/2:53

excited that everything was unbroken except damn pushups after 2nd round. I would have been there all day so broke them into 5s and 3s

Total working time 15:48

Kat you are amazing

4. broke push ups at 8, and bailed on this round because they weren't UB. Not really sure what I was thinking!? I guess I thought I had to redo the whole round, increasing rest to try and get the UB push ups??? Like that was going to happen!!!Anyway, just moved on to the next round. My intention was to make this round up at the end, but ran out of time.
5. 2:56 push ups broken after 12, everything else UB. My endurance for push ups suffered after the strict strength program I did 4 months ago and it still hasn't come back!!!
6. 2:55 push ups broken after 8, everything else UB.
Really, really pleased with the 6 rounds of UB pull ups. Finally!!! Think it had to do with Mike questioning why I was always regripping with my pull ups. I didn't really know why other than it was a habit I started when I learned the butterfly. So I didn't do it for this WOD and it was better. Thanks Mike! On that note...can't thank the guys at OPT enough...Rob, Geoff, Mike, Trevor...you guys are AMAZING. I really appreciate everything you do.

1:25/1:24/1:35/1:42/1:46/1:50

Notes: The increase in time is due to situps...which were very slow...they always are for me...

PU were great...and I just fall straight into pushups...

have not done that many air squats in a long time and they felt fine..

Push-ups broken on sets 5&6 (12/5/3 & 10/3/3/3/1)...was at total muscular failure, would've had to wait a long long time before I could do 20 more unbroken. Still pumped that I made to 4 rounds, Ub push-ups are always brutal for me. Felt fast otherwise. Some crazy fast times posted today!

Eric Montgomery said...

1:57, 1:52, 1:59, 2:07, 2:07, 2:10 for 12:12 of total working time. Pullups all unbroken chin over bar, pushups all unbroken chest to deck, situps all unanchored with abmat. Had a bit of a hard time keeping my rhythm on butterfly pullups.

Brandon said...

2:20/2:19/2:21/2:18/3:32/3:00

Pullups broken on all sets. Everything else unbroken until the meltdown on the 5th set. CNS and muscle fatigue set in and I imploded. Got mad and managed to get a bit more on track in the 6th set. Workouts like these are always the hardest for me.

2:04 ub, 2:10 ub, 2:25 broken pushups for the rest of all sets, 2:30, 2:35, 2:40

Only broke up pushups but I did progressively take more time in between exercises, usually just bt pulls and pushes to shake out my arms.

Adam said...

When it says chin ups on here, does it always say chin ups or are there pull ups too? Just wondering if hand placement matters. Thanks!

Had to break pushups after 10 and 11 reps on round 5 and 6, so fail on those two. Felt kinda sick during situps and squats on round 5-6, slow, but at least I did´nt stop. Pull-ups where fast and easy, that´s a plus! :)

Baltoe said...

Never trust the short term memory. Got to the gym, set out to do the Mar 17th WOD. Got the #'s incorrect, but I think it will even out.
15x Chins
25x Push ups
25 sits
25 squats.

All unbroken except the last two sets of push ups, 15 - 5 - 5
13 - 4 - 3 - 3 - 2


Finished with some skin left on the paws, unilike the first post on this WOD. Saw two other crossfitters in the gym, which is always an inspiration.

Pre-WOD fuel - 0700 Quinoa AMar Millet porridge with Cashew butter

Mid AM - two chicken thighs

H2O

Post WOD - Spinach leaves, multigrain croutons sardines with
balsamic vinegar and lemon.

Notes: All unbroken. Felt pretty good this morning. I think I just needed a couple beers on St Patrick's Day (night prior) to shake up the body. Ran the USMC obstacle course in the afternoon (something I haven't done in years) and went through it with ease. Thanks OPT.
