DAVE X said...

A. 95/105/115
B. BWT x5 x3 sets
C. 20 xUNB x3 sets

I've been keeping the governor on for the past couple wods, I think I need to start ramping it up to RX'd purely for motvation, versus ego. I felt like I was just hitting my zone when I was nearing the end of the wod.

Bear said...

early may:
A. 1. 24, pb + 1 rep = 45 sek
2. 9 + a bunch = 2:05 sek
3. 5 + 5 + a bunch = 2:18 sek
4. 5 + 5 + 1...DNF

B. 3x100 - 3x102.5 - 3x105 - 3x110 - 2x115 kg

C. 19 + 15 + 13 + 13 + 10

Ripped upp my hand, called it quits. Felt strong first set of CTB, then weak. Happy with 24 reps, but I need to do them more fluidly. Starting to learn the high bar, felt ok, but I gave up mentally on the last one. Did C-part on parallets since my hand hurt to much to do it on the floor.

PTS said...

Lisa M said...

Where the heck is everyone today - I wonder if everyone feels like i do today - like i got hit by a truck!!

A. 65/75/80/85/90f at 8 absolutely nothing in the tank today

B. All UB kipped legs up then made sure i held them on the way down at tempo. Think i could have added weight but just too bagged and sore today. I am seriously paying for my holidays.

C. NO GHD so will do these at the gym I am going to tomorrow to work on my Cleans - yay very excited just hope i have a little more energy tomorrow.

Benorama said...

B. Body weight, 5x5. Set 1 broken -3reps+2reps. Set 2-5 UB.
C. Scaled to 10 reps per set. 5 rounds completed.

Notes: For A, finished out 10 at 95, paused at rack after rep 6, 8, and 9. For B, L-position was weak, legs were locked but dropping below parallel. For C, this is a new movement to me, scaled reps based on ability to keep up tempo. I have weak@$$ hamstrings! BWT: 160#

Mr.Lundmark said...

Late May:
A: 50kg(110 lbs) all sets. Could probably have gone up ~5 kg but my lowest gain-weight on barbell at home is 10 kgs. Last set tough but didn't have to scream my lunges out to get it up.
B: All without bonus weight. unbr/unbr/unbr/3+1+1/2+2+1
C: Subbed for 40 kg good-mornings.
Unbr x 4 last round 16+4 with a few seconds rest on the top at the split.

Ali Loach said...

Way to stick with it when ya feel like crap.
I'm still around. Been MIA trying to get my shoulder figured out and my head in the game. Decided to go the way of the CFC affiliate team so once the remaining team members are chosen (this weekend) I'll be following Brett's programming. However, I'll ABSOLUTELY be checking in to see how you and the other ladies continue to kick ass.

James.......there are no words....thanks doesn't even begin to encompass the gratitude I feel for all that you've done for me.
Although I may not be following your blog I will continue to use your philosophies as motivation during the weeks ahead.
"Full effort is full Victory" and my personal fav......
"You're not're just being lazy" ;o)

Geoff Aucoin said...

This WOD was brought to you by the letter 'scaled.' Due to a myriad of mysterious maladies I had to back off huge today so I may live to fight again.

A. Front Squats - 130,135,140,145,150
B. L-Sits for AMSAP - 15,15,12,10,10
(I may never do an L Pull-Up again, they wreck my neck every single time, which is why I'm tweaked today)
C. GHDs - 20,20,15 done. All done with arms behind back.
D. Trap 3 Raises - started with a pebble and worked myself up to a Revive bar. I rule.

Should was not happy with thrusters today so I went with the front squats. I may have hurt my shoulder yesterday being to exuberant during the WOD. If that's the case, I am this guy -

I will miss your posts and having someone to help keep me inspired and motivated.

Early Mayer: was looking forward to a double, oh well, I can wait until the triple on Sat.

A. :30, :30, :29, :28, :36
last set got tough, lost rhythm
B. 255, 265, 275, 280x2, 280x3
C. :28, :23, :21, :20, :20
Last 5-10 sec my feet drooped below my hips each set

ken c said...

forgot to say i broke tempo on the last set of thrusters. had to quick pause in the rack on 8 9 and 10.

Anonymous said...

late May

A. 115/125/135/145/155X9, got 10 overhead but not locked out.
B. 15/25/35/45/50X4, used a backpack loaded with weight, which is definitely easier than a weight belt cause it makes it easier to keep the legs up.
C. 20 (2 purple bands)/20x2 sets (1purple band)/20x2 sets (no band)

Melisa C said...

Late May

A. 65, 75, 85, 95, 105B (5/3/2)
B. All BWT UB, 3/2, 4/1, 3/2, 2/2/1
reset legs each time, slight bend in knees and kipped
C. All UB with GHD length set at 7

I didn't have a lot in me today either but I trained at the end of the day vice at O'dark hundred like I usually do. And on my lunch break I did some isolated tricep and rhomboid work as they are weak for me. Need to get those damn ring dips!

Chad said...

Late May

A. 95/105/110/115/115(5+3+2)
B. UB(bwt)/UB(bwt)/3+2(15#)/UB(bwt)/UB(bwt
C. UB x 5

Thrusters were much harder than I thought. I seriously figured I would get up to 135#+ but man was I wrong. Feel like I fatigue easy on these.

Brian Maier said...

Despite being an early Mayer, I felt the urge to do "Flight Simulator". Goal was to break 10min.

Past results:
Aug 5: 27:28
Oct 9: 12:58

Tonight: 10:47 (PR) misses!

Brent Maier said...

38/6'2"/198 - Early May - Hurt

A C2B: 33, 1:15, 1:52, 2:05, 1:57 - Not an ideal pullup bar where I did this WOD. Low and very narrow made this difficult.
B HBBS: 135, 165, 225, 265, 295# - All 3's
C Lsit: 25, 20, 17, 15, 15 - On dumbells

Chad Hall said...

Late May

Had to take today off. I went Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and was too smoked today. Still really sore from the runs on the weekend and mentally tired.

I'll do Thursday, rest Friday, back on track for the weekend. Exams do it to me every time.

Steve Howell said...

Late May

A: 95/100/110/115/120
B: All 5 sets done @ body weight
C: Didn't do ran out of time.

Heavy Evy said...

My warm up was el-terriblay, due to my trainin mate and I taking turns watching my son who was with us, though the little guy suprised everyone including me when he knocked out a couple legit push ups, while being suspended on 2 pairs of parrelletes....kind of creepy that the little dude starting to get pecs and he isn't 4 yet....must be the paleo.

B.10,10,20,25,25(4) Weight belt sup grip
C.UB,12//,13 then started cramping bad, and packed it in...weak.

Andrea K said...

Late May
emotionally and mentally drained today, but went and got it in, and glad I did

A. 55, 65, 75, 80, 85, 90 (was close, REALLY wanted to rest on the8th one, but somehow pushed through!)
B. BWT 5, 4/1, 4/1, 4/1, 3/2
C. Only my second time doing these so did 10 x 5....and still ouch!!

nice work on the Thrusters Melissa !! :)

Erik Luber said...

Checked comments for the first time today and was surprised to see that many people were feeling not 100% as I was. I backed off on this one and subbed shoudler press instead of thrusters...tweaked my lower back doing those SDLHPs somehow

A. 25 kg, 26, 25(7+3), 22.5(7+3), 20(7+3)
B. All Bwt
C. 10, 10, 10, 10, 8 (these were strangely therapeutic for my lower back...felt a lot better after these)

Going to re-evalutate if I have taken enough time off since sectionals. I'll see how the next few workouts go. If I am not ready to eat bees might take some more time off/significantly reduce the training workload.

david83 said...

start at 115 then my wrist were happy so I decrease to 95 and did all sets at reps and fast. This felt good

L pull ups

Michelle said...

A) 55/70/85/95x7(just quit digging in as soon as it got got distracted by thumb pain...)/ 95x10. Thanks to David m for the encouragement on that last set.
B) 5x2.5#/5x5#/5x7.5/5x10#(David said I did 4 here, but I'm pretty sure it was, 4 or 5 here). 4x15#. Used a light bag with plates in it for weight. When I emptied it after the last round I realized I had 15# in it instead of the 12.5# I thought was there! It was like Christmas!!!
C) 20/20/19/13/16...these were so challenging today.
Not great tenacity lately or since sectionals really..
trying not to over think will come.
