Can one arm bent over DB rows be subbed for one arm KB rows?

Craig said...

For 2011 B1 and B2.
Can I get an explanation of what exactly the movements entail?
I have a pretty good idea, but I just want to be sure.

Payday loans said...

Wow,nice, one of the best read posts so far.

DAVID X said...

We had a front row seat during Pistol's 3rd wod at the Northeast Qualifer and she absolutely killed it. Amazingly strong.

Melissa said...

I'm like a kid on Christmas morning seeing my "Unbroken" back on the OPT site.


Soren said...

A1: 70,70,75,75,85 (2) got cramp in hamstring, not funny, but fun to look at, trying to rack when fatigued and cramping in hamstring!!!
A2: 3,3,3,3,3 with 24 kg
B1: 5x8 reps with 15 kg weight plate.
B2: 8/8, 7/8, 9/8, 8/8, 8/8 with 2 pood

Andrew said...


A1. 135, 145, 165, 165, 175
A2. 25lbx4, 25lbx4, 35lbx3, 25lbx2 (shoulder pain kicked in so I stopped), BWx4
B1. 20lbx8, 20lbx8, 25lbx8, 30lbx6
B2. 6, 6, 6, 6
C. 10lbs x 6 reps per arm x 3 sets.

A1 felt fine and well controlled through the rx tempo.
A2 I had to be really careful with because of my injured shoulders. The negatives and the bottom position tend to cause pain. Much better than before, so it's good to see the rehab doing some good.
B1 I had to be really careful with as well because of shoulders (I haven't been able to press with DBs since last summer!)
B2 I followed a youtube video I found: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTJTcEhXIUc
but I didn't follow correctly, as I didn't lean over to one side enough...
C Couldn't even do these last time d/t injury. Very happy to see improvement in my shoulders.

OPT said...

samy - yes

craig - b1 - sit unsupported on a bench and press db's overhead - palms facing your head (parallel), 3 down, 1 pause, explode up, 2 sec pause overhead, b2 - one knee and hand on support, pull KB high with slight rotation of body at top, use scapulae more than lat, 2 down, no pause at bottom, 1 to pull up, pause 1 sec at top

brian cilento said...

well hello ladies...

a1. 185, 185, 195, 195, 205
a2. 4,4,4,4,4... should these be weighted? seems everyone else doing it.
b1. 35,40,45x6, 45x6
b2. 13/13, 7/8, 6/7, 8/8
c. 30lbs

Brandon said...

Brian -
Depends if you can do the movement perfect at the prescribed tempo. The first few times I did it, no weight. Now that they are getting easier, I add weight only if I can maintain form and tempo.

david83 said...

A2-BWT-4, bwt plus 30-4, bwt plus 35, bwt plus 40 , bwt plus 45

B1-105 for 6 reps for 4 sets
challenging at temp
B2- firs used at 24 kg ball thats all I had, so I switched to a 70 lbs DB for 7 reps for 3 sets

C1- 20 lbs 2 sets 8 reps

Brandon said...

A1. 185/205/225/245/265
A2. 35# 4/4/4/4/3
B1. 50#/60/65(f-4)/55 x 6
B2. (R,L): 13,13/12,11/11,10/10,10
C. 25x8/25x8/30x6

Notes: DB Press testing shoulder today. KB row very tough when trying to focus on pulling with scapula.

Chad Hall said...

Took Saturday off for a volleyball tournament, which I tweaked my knee in. Not sure what I did but it just feels really unstable. Did my own thing yesterday because of it. Luckily could do today's.

A1: 155, 165, 185, 185(5), 195(3)
A2: 45, 50, 55(3), 55(3), 55(3)

B1: used KB(kg) 16, 20, 24(6), 24(6)
B2: 10/8, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6

C: 8/arm with 15lb DB, highest DB at gym.

Felt pretty good, B was difficult, hard to maintain tempo at top of torso row, that was the limiting factor.

May have to take tomorrow off as well, depending how my knee feels.

b-mac said...


...did my CGBP that i missed sunday, to start off, hit 235# with relative ease, failed at 245#, don't think i gave myself enough rest time. will try 240# next time.

rested a bit, then did WOD with 145# all the way through, chinups all unbroken.

Lars said...

A1. 195x8, 205x8, 215x6, 225x6, 240x4
A2. 32kg x 4 x 3sets, 40kg x 3 x 2sets
B1. 40lbx8, 50 x 6 x 3 sets
B2. 12, 10, 10, 10
C. 20lb x 8, 6, 6

Felt pretty good today, especially after taking 3 days off for some camping and biking.

Bench was strong and smooth.
Chin ups felt pretty good too.
DB presses felt a little unstable, but I guess that's part of the challenge.
KB torso row felt a little weak.
DB rotations crashed fast after the first set. Definite weakness of mine.

Lisa M said...

Nice ABS wow i aspire to have those one day and to have my picture on this blog!! Great job ladies.

David X - you are famous as your mantra was posted on cfjax.com i am linked to their facebook page for some reason and saw it there - awesome!!

Joel B. said...

A1: 135, 135, 145, 150, 165
Shoulder is almost normal feeling on these, which is great. I am able to push more with less mental energy going towards dealing with annoying shoulder.
A2: 45, 50, 53X4, 55.5X3X2
tough tempo...beginning of sets seemed easy and by the end it was a different story
B1: 35X8, 40X6, 40X4-25X4, 35X7
ok...db's highest I have is 25's...holding multiple db's sucks. This is why I switched in set 3...just couldn't hold on and do lift.
B2: 8/8, 8/8, 6/6, 6/6
really difficult to hold tempo on these
C: 15X8/8, 17.5X8/8, 20X7/
great improvements happening here

Poly said...

Pretty jacked up about getting through a workout today. Didn't push too hard, but made it through.
A1. 135 155 185 205 225
A2. 35 45 55 55 x4
B1. 35 45 55x8 55x6
B2. 10 10 8 8
C. Best part of this exercise is it shows me a glaring weakness I have. After stumbling and cheating through one set at 25, I grabbed a 10lb plate and fire off high reps.

Craig said...


Paul Smith said...


A1: 185, 205, 225, 235, 245, 245
A2: 45x4, 55x4, 60x3, 65x3, 65x2, 60x3 Failed on 2nd set w/65lbs had to drop weight to keep tempo and reps

B1: 45x8, 60x7, 60x6, 60x5 Palms facing out. Didn't know that I was suppsed to be doing these with palms facing in.
B2: 21, 21, 18, 19R/18L Looking at other posts, I'm not sure if I was doing this right.

C: 15x8, 20x8, 20x6

BK said...

A1: 155/135,165/155,175/165,185/165,185/155.
A2: all UB.
Tempo was tough on A1. A2 big breakthrough getting all sets butterfly UB and empowering to be able to readjust the grip/feel of bar to save hands mid set. Never taxed throughout.

Samy said...

Thanks OPT,



Tempo made this more challenging than I thought it would be.

A2. Did bwt only.

B1. 35X8,35x6,35x6,35x6
Shoulders felt tired from yesterday.

B2. 10,12,12R/11L,12. Using 70 pound db.Tempo made this killer for the shoulders.

C.15 pound DB, 6/arm x3

Angelo Fosco said...

A1. 155,170,185,205,215x3
A2. Bwt, 10#, 35#'s x3 (Question: Was the 4 second tempo going up or down? I did it going down but I wasn't sure..)
B1. 45,50,55,60x6
B2. used 70lb DB: 11,8,9,9
C. 10,15,20 all 8 reps

Gillian Mounsey said...

A1. 145(8),145(8),150(6),150(6), 155(4)
A2. BW plus 35(4),40(4),53(4),60(3),60(3)
B1. 35lb db's all sets 6 reps
B2. 16/16, 12/12, 12/12, 12/12, 12/12
C. worked very light with high reps to failure - 5lbs (did it more like a rehab movement)

Weak today. Stung repeatedly by wasp 1 hour before workout. Adrenal response sucked the life out of me.

joey warren said...

DeeJay said...

A1. 177-182-187-193-197(5)
A2. all sets unbroken, felt really good about these today... felt fast!

Brent Maier said...


A1 CGBP: 175/175/186/205(5)/215#(2) - Needed assistance to finish last rep of round 5 and 6.
A2 SCU: 35/35/40/40/45# - Ouch
B1 SPDBPress: 25/30/40/50#x4 - Last 2 rounds became increasingly more difficult to maintain locked arms with palms facing me at full extension.
B2 TorsoRows: 10/10/10/10 @ 2pd
C DBExtRot: 20/20/25# - Cut out rest times.

Pumpy day... It feels like I'm all impinged in the lower neck upper back region. Going to have to try and work that out this evening.

Alex said...

Ok so I've been really bad at posting, but I have been keeping track in a journal. Today I have 2 mins to spare :D
Here' goes!

A1 65-65-75-75-85
A2 5-4-4-4-4
Upper body not bad as far as stregth, even with the slow negs.

B1 used 2 20lb DBs
8-8-8-8 Last 2 reps very hard

B2 Used 20kg kb wasn`t 100% sure what this exercise was to look like...did a bent over row. Please correct me é describe the exercise if I am off.

C I hate these. 8 lb DB.


jay rhodes said...

Part 1.

A1. Did strict shoulder press rather than push press....oops.



25-25-25-25-40 PR

25 was no problem so I decided to go for max on the last set, winded up getting a PR (old PR was 35)
Confident I could hit 50 fresh.

Been feeling quite strong the last few days.
Loving the program James!

DeeJay said...

Starting to feel my legs return to "normal" after last weeks Front Squats...

Muscle up practice on the band...Got 4, 3, and a few 2"s..Working on transition and big shout out to Jenny who gets better and better...Solid MU's 2 at a time...Big numbers around the corner! GO GIRL!

jay rhodes said...

Hit the track at night for part 2 from Sunday 2010.

5 min @ 50%
3 x [4 min @90%; 2 min @50%]
5 min @ 50%
Record 4 min intervals.


Lower back tightened up a bit on the second run, thinking it was from stabilizing all the presses earlier on.
Still happy with it. The first run was quite comfortable, another 460m at even pacing would be a 5:36 mile.

Lisa M said...

A1 95/105/110(f)at 4/105/110 wow these were hard today maybe because i really went quite a bit more narrow than i ever have it was a good challenge

B2 8/8/8/7/7 i really liked these

2011--performed 6/29/10

A1. 185,195,205,215,225
A2. 22.5, 30, 35, 40(3), 40 (3)
B1. 30,40,45,50--all 8s--started too light
B2. 2pd: 6/7,6/6, 6/7,7/7
C. 22.5(8),30 (7), 30(7)

tempo killed me on B2 and C. Could have pulled a lot more, but couldn't hold the one count at the top on B2 for more than the listed number. On C, need to swallow pride and work on form, tempo at lighter weight. 30s started to look ugly.
