post loads and reps to comments
note the difference in anchoring and unanchoring
stick to tempo strictly for back squat and split squat; 4010 means NO rest at top; 3131 means 1 sec rest at top and bottom

Is this a good backsquat?

Just want to make sure that's the form I'm shooting for. Thanks!

Steve Howell said...

Curt, good to see you on the blog.

it was good meeting you at regionals.

PTS said...

B. 3x10 reps e/l with 15kg DB, still being careful of knee

C. 13


OPT said...

back squat - as low as possible under correct form and with perfect speed

Dawson said...


A. 185/205/225/245/265 @ tempo
- the tempo made it a lot more difficult than expected

B. Rounds 1 - 3 (8 reps w/ 25# DB each hand)
Round 4 (5 reps only w/ 25# DB each hand)
- legs were just quivering in rounds 3 & 4 and felt like jelly when trying to walk afterwards

C. 10 - abs have always been a weak point

Poly said...

A. 225 255 275 295 315
B. 20 30 40x2
C. 12

Brandon said...

A. 225/245/265/295/315
B. 55#db/hand 8x4*
C. 12 (anchored was 14 last Sat.)

Notes: Rested 2.5 mins between 3rd and 4th set of split squats. Got really dizzy on the last couple of reps of the 3rd (my fault...holding breath too much) and needed extra time to clear head.

dmarsh said...

A1. Peterson Step Up w/ DBs (2010) 4 x 12: 35,37,37,37
(75s rest)

Alex Duncan said...

Traveling today and sadly missing this WOD (2011)

Also, glutes are still fried from the jumping lunges this week.

Be back tomorrow.

Paul Smith said...


A: 255, 265, 285, 305, 325 - Felt strong on this, probably could have done 345 on last round

B: 40lb db x 10
50lb db x 10
55lb db x 10
60lb db x 10
Right leg is quite a bit weaker than left leg for some reason.

C: 13

Part 2: Due to schedule had to do workouts back to back.

I hit 150 DU pretty fast and then it went down hill from there. Finished with total 335.

Eric Montgomery said...

A. 115x12, 135x10, 155x8, 185x6, 215x4. Low bar. Tried to exhale just before lockout and inhale at the start of next rep so I didn't lose tempo. Started a little low on weight because I didn't have a solid prediction for loads for that many reps at slow tempo.
B. 20s x8, 25s x8. Only 2 sets for each leg, still getting used to that movement.
C. 14 for each round. Compare to 20, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15 anchored.

Eric Montgomery said...

Part 2 (15 mins later, don't have time to do it later today)

309 DUs.

Got 49 to start with them had trouble keeping rhythm. Still getting used to speed cable rope.

Erik said...

B:25x10,30x10,35x10,40x10. Both legs same weight and reps.
C:10 was the low score. I was doing this with my chest touching my thighs. Not sure what the standard is. I will hit the double under tonight.

Craig said...

Made up for yesterday ( no time)
A1. 115/125/135/145/145(3)
A2. 7/6/5/5/5

Part 2:


Was aiming for 600 and held 60 per minute until the last 60 seconds.

jay rhodes said...


Rest day

lots of rolling on the calves.
They are blown up today

Andrew said...


Part 1:
A. 135(10), 135(12), 145(8), 155(6), 165(4)
--> butt to heels. Erred on side of lighter and slower.
B. 12lbs per hand, 8 reps per set.
--> took till third round to finally figure out how to focus this on glutes instead of quads. Again erred to lighter and slower.
C. Held 10 reps for each of 8 rounds
--> paced myself after last week's debacle.

Part 2: 8 hours later
350 DUs
--> ran 3km to work this morning not knowing about the second part. Calves were killing me.

Poly said...

Part 2:
308 reps
I was thinking I would be amazed with those who broke 400, dmarsh, 595 is mind boggling.

Lars said...

A 150x12, 185x10, 215x8, 240x6, 275x4

B 40lb DB's x 8, 4 sets
C 12 on all sets


619 Doulbe unders

Squats felt good, better each set as the weight went up

Split squats were tough. That was my first time doing them the right way.

Sit ups were smooth and steady.

Double unders felt awesome.

Eric S said...

A. 135, 155, 175, 185, 205. Tempo made it much harder than expected.
B. 20lb each hand x 10
C. 15

DUs = 305 (huge PR).

Joel B. said...

Part 1
A: 135, 140, 145, 150, 160
The tempo was brutal, and the round of 12 and 10 harder than heavier/shorter sets. Only deviation on tempo was some concentric took slightly more than one second toward end of the sets.
B: 15X10, 20X8, 20X10, 25X8
Did the back foot elevated this time, and man it was brutal.
C: 13
harder than anchored for sure. Much more burning in abs and less on hip flexor area.

Part 2 later.

Cute picture. Hannah is 3 I am guessing?!


chris martin said...

a1. had to sub squat for deadlift due to a hip injury
took it easy on the deadlifts.
B.10lb DB`s-8,8,10 15lb DB-15
C.10(hands on head throughout)
anchored score was 11.
Double unders not completed due to a cold I`m fighting.

Gillian Mounsey said...

B. 45lb DBs X 8 reps all sets
C. 16

Mike McGoldrick said...

Part 1:

A. 265,295,310,310,295
Went to heavy and had trouble keeping tempo.

B. Rear foot elevated. Used 1.5 pood for all sets.

C.13 - Had to stop, abdominals cramped up. Felt like the folded over each other, really weird.

Part 2:
The Double Under nightmare continues. 290.

I can't express my frustration with these things. I use a cable and it seems like some days it's too long, and some days it's too short. It's like I am getting worse at them.

Paul, you may have witnessed my D.U. meltdown at sectionals. Anybody have any suggestions/comments on ropes?

Although it was a pretty ugly week, I couldn't be happier. These are all things I obviously needed work on. Thanks for bringing back the excitement of checking the blog every hour to see if the new post is up!

Chad Walding said...


A. 135/155/155/165/175
B. 10/8, 10/8, 8/8, 6/6
C. 13

Part 2 with 20 min break (short on time today)


-Keeping back squat light because of R knee pain, still hard as hell though with slow tempo.
-DB split squats had me dying, almost felt like I was going to passout and totally underestimated these

unit said...

A- snatch- 135(3)/ 155(3)/ 185(2)/ 185(2)/ 205(f)/ 205(f)
B- OHS- 195(9)/ 195(12)/ 195(11)

D3- hbbs @ tempo- 135(15)/ 185(15)/ 185(15)
(10sec bw d1,d2,d3, then 3min bw sets)

then did part of yesterdays wod

A1- 135/ 140/ 145/ 150(3)/ 150(3)
A2- 10/ 8/ 7/ 7/ 7

then rowed 2 cool down
10min ~60%

6hr rest

690 (pr by ~100)... pr'd in the flight simulator a wk or 2 ago doing ~7:34 so DUs r coming slowly but surely... also, my previous pr was using the wire/cable rope... used a heavier rope this time... felt gd... used a 20sec on/ 10sec off strategy...


derb said...


A: 135/155/175x7/190/205x3(paused at the top on the two short sets)

B: 15/15/20/20x8

C: 10(my highest set was my lowest set anchored)

Part 2 rested 90 min

377( i wanted 400 but I'm still happy with this)

Whenever I do anything that is tabata I start to cramp up. I drink alot of water so I don't think that is the problem. If anyone has any ideas what can help me with this I would really appreciate it.

k.jones said...


b.10/10, 10/10, 10/10, 8/8 all w/45# DB
c 11

rested 25 min for double unders. Had to stop after 4 minutes because of terrible shin splints.
Total: 110

p.s. just started crossfitting three months ago and heard of the results from site. will be following site everyday from here on out

Erik Luber said...

Part 1
A. 40 kg, 45, 50, 55, 60, 65
B. 12 kg (10), 16(8), 16(8), 16(8)
C.12 (14,14,14,14,13,12,12,12). Anchored: 15

Really focused on form and tempo, these are the best my squats have ever felt. Trying to get more vertical shins and sticking my ass out, Weights are lighter than I would like, but think I need to start low so I can learn how to squat properly. Pushed the weight on the split squats, these were devastating on my glutes. Sit ups fell apart, much harder than the anchored ones.

Aaron said...

32/m/5'10/220 lb/fat

A: 135x11 135x10 135x5 (rear delts cramped up strangly) 145x6 155x4

B: 10 lb 6/6 5 lb 8/8 8/8 8/8
C: 11 10 10 10 8 8 8 9 (8)

really not satisfied with these results, so many superstars here. goal is to compete in 2011 regionals and not suck.

thank you everyone for showing me how far i have to go to achieve this :)

david83 said...

Today was a tough workout for me personally. Almost gave up like three times, but I finished
Back Squat
Was only able to get back in the second set so I kept the weight the same. WOW my legs hurt
Split Squats
40 lbs 8 /side all four sets
Tabata ( felt good)
15 low score-120 total

Only had a 5 minute break because of time issues

thank you

Joel B. said...

Part 2
3 hrs after part 1:
550 (pr)
previous mark was 485 in the bd comp last Sept. really happy after the leg stuff earlier.

Forgot to note earlier that the squats were HBBS and a2a depth. doesn't make up for the low weight, but I'm working on it.

Chris Dunkin said...

Part 2: 615

nice work unit. i'll try 'em tabata style next time.

part 2 was 10hrs after part 1

Dustin said...

B. 25# x 8/leg x 4
C. 12. Same as anchored.

Part 2

275. High was 55. PR by 2. Tried to keep breaks at 5-8 breath max.
I will be at the 500+ club very soon.

Chris Fodera said...


A. 185, 200, 215, 230, 250
B. 10 reps/leg w/ 15# bumpers in each hand
C. 10

355 after an hour break

A. Weight felt good, but didn't want to push too hard since I am coming back from knee surgery
B. Don't have DBs at the house and my next highest option would be 25# bumpers/hand. Kept it a little light to save the right knee
C. Harder and slower than I thought they would be. Went all the way up (armpits to knees)
Part2. Right knee was acting up a little bit, but seemed to just be sore and not painful. Could definitely have pushed a lot harder, but didn't want to risk it. I am OK with this result due to the fact that I haven't touched a jump rope in 2 months. I can tell that my DUs are rusty, but am confident that they'll come back.

Steve Howell said...

Part 1;
A: 155/179/199/221/243

C. 10 (anchored was 12)
10 mins rest (no time)
total = 399 (so close!)

BS surprisingly easy.. I thought I was going to struggle early on with the tempo but they were solid so I kept jumping the weight.
split squats were hard.. dropped to only 1 KB to maintain perfect tempo.
p.s. what a cutie!! :)

Brandon said...

2011 - Part 2
340 (PR by 200 something). Getting better, but work still needed. I feel like I left 60 or so on the table.

C:low score 12

Rested 5 minutes

Double Unders 436

Extremely hard workout today. Split squats killed me, would have been so much easier 31X1, the 3 second concentric was brutal. Really happy with keeping the tempo today though.

Lower abs cramped up during the sit ups. Never have regular sit ups been so hard.

Time constraints so had to quicken the rest. Legs were toast. My wire rope broke on my second double under so had to resort to a heavier rope, which is probably a good training tool.

Chase said...

A. 185, 205, 225, 245, 275
B. was challenged to do "Randy" so I fell into peer pressure... 4:39
C. 12

Part 2...
405 or 505, counted 405, but I'm pretty sure I was getting 50 + per minute. I'll go with 405 to be conservative and see how I do next time.

Julian Cruz said...

B.44lb 10x4

Double Under= 476

A.Tried to stick to tempo as much as possible
B.Could have gone heavier but only have a set of the 44lb KB. Next time will use the bar to add more weight.

These are definitely things I need to work on. Not to satisfied with the numbers but it will come.

Kevin said...


2011--performed 6.18.10
part 1
A. 205,225,245,265,285
*got called out for depth on last set, so did it again. Still getting used to tempo. Felt like tempo on the way down stayed consistent, but that the tempo on a few reps going up was too slow toward the end.

B. 12.5x10 for first two sets per leg; 15x10 or third; 22.5x10 for fourth.
Did these with leg up on bench. Swallowed my pride and backed way off the weight from Saturday because I absolutely died last time starting with 30s and tempo went to hell. Can probably start at 22.5 and work toward 30+ next time, but I'm glad I worked at getting the tempo down.

C. 14--same as anchored

rested 14 hours

part 2
387--shoulders were limiting factor. Good pace through 150, very slow going after that.

Thank you for continuing to humble me, James and everyone on here.
