Good morning James,

A question and a comment:

What is the women's weight on the thrusters?

Soreness in shoulders, traps and back woke me up this morning!

B. freeze jump to 24" box
Notes: cut rest by 1 minute across the board. Worked out indoors, tried max jump but was easily hitting ceiling. Will make up later.

Andrew said...


A1. 155x8, 175x8, 195x8, 205x7, 225x6
--> straps at 195 cuz that's what failed me last week, robbing me of posterior chain work. Hope that's ok.
A2. Subbed good mornings: 135x12, 135x12, 135x11, 135x10, 135x10
--> felt tougher than last week, wanted to keep reps high, keep good control of tempo
A3. 2pood x 21 unbroken x 5
--> probably too heavy, but it's the only KB I have with me while i'm out of town.
B. 32/32/30/26
--> last two sets hurt so good
C. On elbows, 25-30s each side before breaking then finished rest of 90s trying to do as much as I can, usually 5-10s more.

Melisa C said...

A1. 155(8), 165(8), 170(8), 175(6), 180(6)
A2. All 12s
A3. 35# all UB
B. 30, 31, 30, 29
C. UB, right UB/L Broken, B/B

Legs are still cooked from the split squats/BS ladder on Sat. I think I went too heavy the split squats.

2010 Part 1:

A. 105, 115, 120, 125, 130X, 125 (2), 120
B. 6 X 30" box, 6 X30" box, 6 X 30" box with 25# plate, 6 X 30" box with 45# plate
C. Vertical leaps about 18" - 24" above reach. Forgot to measure before I left. If the lines are still there when I come back for part 2 I will specify.

As I said in my earlier post I was incredibly sore and tight when I woke up this morning. In fact, the soreness woke me up! But after 20 minutes of movement prep I felt pretty good. My mid back was sore on the hang cleans - had to fight to stay tight and keep shoulders back.

Chris Dunkin said...

rx'd means exactly 3min b/t 5th set of A3 and B, and 60sec b/t B and C.

Quick note about the Hybrid Summer Challenge: it's on August 22d, not 21st as was posted yesterday. The Strongman Seminar is August 21st. (I just checked with Hybrid Athletics about this.)

Steve Howell said...


A1: 180/200/225/245/260
A2: 12 for all 5 sets
A3: 1.5 pd for all 5 sets unbroken
B: 34/34/34/33
C: 1st felt fine, 2nd got tough, 3rd was hard couple breaks.

Chad Hall said...


A1: 135, 155, 175, 185, 195
A2: 12 for all ... alternated hands at chest and at head
A3: 1.5 pood

B: 28, 28, 29, 29

C: First 1, 2, 3, 4 bridges as Rx'd, then held plank for 1:30, then switched sides 4 times during last bridge.

Tempo was maintained the whole time so really hapy about that. Really want to maintain tempo every workout this cycle. Could have gone a little heavier, but didn't want to push too hard first week.

I sweat more during the side bridges than ever before I think, these were tough!

Brandon said...

A1. 245(7)/265(7)/285(7)/305(6)/325(7)

Lisa M said...

Check out the .com there is video up of the Canada regional run WOD - sweeeeeet!!!

A1. 135,155,175,185,195(7)
A2. 12x5
A3. 20KG unbroken
B. 29x4
C. First rnd each side made 90s. Last two rnd broken but better than last time.

Figured this was coming again after yesterday. Glad it's over.

Poly said...

Hammy's still a mess from squat ladders. Plus battling a bit of e-coli poisining, tried but wouldn't start. Dammit.

Paul Smith said...


A1: 235x8,245x8,255x8,265x6,275x6
A2: Subbed 135lb Goodmornings: Did 12 reps on each set but lost tempo on the last two
A3: 60lb all unbroken

B: 32,33,33,32

C: All broken up. This was very difficult for me.

Lars said...

A1. 225x8,235x6 x 4 sets
A2. 12,10,8,8,8
A3. 21UBx5 with 1.5pd
B. 26,26,26,28
C. 60sec x 3

A1-A3 was tough on the lower back, grip felt weak on the DL's too. Split lunges felt smooth and solid. Side bridge sucked, never really done that before, needed to break at 60sec each round and sweated like crazy on the side bridge.

BK said...

Part 1: 155,175,1/205,185,2/195,2/185.
Dropped bar on every rep..its a start.

Any Big Dawgs heading to Rob's joint MUST come up here in August. CFP is 20 minutes up the road... contact me to connect.

Alex Duncan said...

A1. 145, 160, 170, 185, 200 All sets with 8 reps. Started too low. This was only my second time doing these. I think they will help develop my weak posterior chain.
A2. 12 all UB, hands on chest, unweighted.
A3. All UB and easy with 1.5p
B. All sets 30 reps. focused on full hip extension at the top of the jump. Smoked my legs.
C. All sets broken with 3-4 breaks. Couldn't go more than 45 seconds. Very tough.

Signed up for my first OPT CCP cert in September. I'll be looking forward to it all summer!

B. 32/32/30/26

C. Alot harder than i expected!!

Mack Lar said...

I've been trying to locate a local testing center to have a food intolerance test done to complement the food log I've started. Today I found foodintoleranceusa.com which conducts a 300 food and 300 non food test using hair samples for around $80. This seems like its too good to be true considering most of the other companies I've found that conduct this testing charge considerably more. I was hoping to get your take on it. Digging back through some of the early Big Dawg days I think I remember you mentioning a few companies in Canada that do this testing as well. Thanks.
Its absolutely killing me not to be back in the gym right now but I'm sticking to the plan of taking three weeks off. Really looking forward to getting back at it.

Joel B. said...

A1: 155, 165, 175, 185, 195X8
A2: 12 for all
A3: 1 pd
B: 31 on all
C: all broken, but only once per set as opposed to last time and went longer before breaking than last time even with less time off between sets.

huge improvements today vs. last week on these. partly due to improved form on the sldl (reviewed demo on performance menu). Felt good...besides quads being still quite tender from squat ladder!

A. Maloney said...

Coach, quick Q for stiff leg DL's - If its the grip thats hindering us, would you recommend the staps (if we do it again) or just do what you can?

chris martin said...

yesturdays wod-
A1. 155,175,205,225
A2. 16kg-4,3 12kg-3,3
B.1+8,1+7,1+6,1+5(focused on depth for dips, which ruined me for the Push ups.
c1. 10,8,9,10-not impressed
C2. not rx`d , forgot to look at demo before leaving . did something like one arm bent over butterfly using the rx`d rep scheme.

Part 1:

175 (UB)
185 (UB)
195 (UB)
200 (re-grip on 3rd rep)
205 (re-grip on 3rd rep)
205 (re-grip every rep)
205 (re-grip every rep)

**first time using hook grip on cleans. Felt pretty good. Shitty bar and no bumpers, so I was weary of dropping the bar. Don't think I'd have the same regripping problem with a good 28mm bar.
Have hit 225 for 6 consecutive HPC's in the past (with straps) Still taking some getting used to working without them.

B. 4 sets at 44" box

C. All jumps within 1" under or 1" over 10' basketball rim
**used a power step

My schedule did not permit 6 hours rest time, so I rested 10 min and got at it.

Part 2

Set 1 - 3 Rounds + 3 thrusters
Set 2 - 3 Rounds + 3 thrusters, 3 c2b pullups
Set 3 - 3 Rounds + 3 thrusters, 6 c2b pullups

Wanted 4 sets of B1/B2 but I was cooked. Left arm grip weaker than right on farmers walks. QLOs fried!

Carrie McG said...

A3. 1 pood UB
B. 28, 28, 28, 25 (the lactic acid burn in these were horrible!)
C. 60 seconds a side, all broken

didn't workout yesterday because of a head-splitting migraine (i haven't had one since I was 12!). Super weird. I hate missing days! happy with today.

B: 31, 32, 32, 31

C: Side Bridge: 1st two sets unbroken, 3rd set broke at 1:10 both sides took 5 sec rest and finished

Where should the foot position on the GHD bench be? I tried below, level and above the quad pad prior to workout to feel the difference and above was much more difficult. Is there a standard for GHD raises?

Team CFP 2010:

Part I:
135, 145, 155x1, 150x3, 155, 165x1, 155
30", 33", 33", 33"
C- forgot to measure, but alternated L and R

Part 2:
4 rounds (hand pain inhibited the last 2 rounds of thruster so I did 3 FS)
4 rounds (did 3 FS then 3 HSPU and completed the rest as rx)
3 rounds plus 3FS

No rest before HSPU's, pullups, or DU's. Long rest before the Clean- limiting factor.

A3. 20kg x21 x4
B. 32, 33, 34, 35.
C. 90s, 3 sets per side

Cut part A to 4 rounds based on how long it took my hamstrings to recover from last week's SLDLs and GHRs. Side bridges went a lot smoother than last time.

Yelvi said...

Melissa said...


Part 2: 105# Thrusters

1. 4 rounds + 1 thruster
2. 4 rounds + 1 thruster (but last round of pull-ups I got hung up in the bottom of swing several times. Consulted with BK and decided not to allow that in next set).
3. 2 rounds + 3 thrusters + 4 pull-ups.

3rd set took three attempts to get the first round of 10 pull-ups without breaking my rhythm. 1st attempt got 5, 2nd attempt got 6, 3rd attempt got all 10 but had to slow down the push away at the top of the bar for the last couple.

Looking back on this WOD I'm really happy that I was able to do 7 sets of 10 unbroken pull-ups before the rhythm gave me problems.

I also felt great on the 105# thrusters- and that's a definite first!

Dunsey said...

Part 1
A. 125, 130, 135, 140(1), 140, 135, 130 (last 2 sets for solid form)
B. 30", 32.5", 35", 37"(5)
C. High 21", Low 19"

Part 2
1. 4 Rounds + 3 Thrusters (105 lbs)
2. 3 Rounds (failed 2 times on pullups at the 9th pullup and had to re-do... wow!)
3. 3 Rounds (failed on one of the pullup sets & had to redo)

Pullups are really tough for me to sustain right now. Have laid off them long enough to decondition my pullup endurance due to this elbow. Also wearing a brace to keep my wrist straight, which further complicates the process. The battle here was less about the actual pullup and more about keeping my mind right and not getting frustrated with where I am. Just accepting what my body is giving me right now :)

2010 Part 2, using 105# for thruster

1. 4 rounds + 3 thruster
2. 3 rds + 3 thruster*
3. 3 rds + 3 thruster

*all rounds counted here were unbroken ctb and d-u, as rx'd. in the second round, i also got 9 ctb and broke without enough time to try for 10 again, so i finished that set + 15 double unders. was really psyched to get 10 rds of pull-ups unbroken!

A3 KBS: 55/55/55/55# - Unb
B JSL: 30/30/30/30 - Ran over a few seconds on the last 2 rounds just to hit 30.
C SB: 1st round unbroken - Round 1 & 3 were arms straight, & 2 was on elbow.

I was going to skip the lunges because even today I was taking the elevator at work and walking down stairs backwards at home just this morning. It's amazing what a little warmup will do.

Part 1:
A. Hang Power Clean 95(3), 100(3), 105(3), 110(3), 115(1), 110(2), 105 (2)
B. Freeze Box Jumps: 30" box
C. Max vertical Jump: didn't measure but pleasantly surprised to see it was a good foot and a half above max reach

Part 2: used 85# for thrusters
Set 1: 3 rounds + thrusters and 5 pullups (first two rounds only unbroken)
Set 2: 3 rounds + thrusters (first round unbroken)
Set 3: 3 rounds (only first round unbroken)

pullups felt great on first round of each set but after that had trouble getting my chest to touch even though the height was there.

2011-performed 6/15/10 w/ K. Rooney

A1. 175(8),185(8),195(8),205(8),215(8) - focused on perfect form.
A2. 8s for all sets didn't go up because my cadence was a little off.
A3. 44lbs x 4, 53 lbs. for last one. 53 didn't feel light.
B. 25, 28, 28, 28, 28
C. Very broken. Straight arm could hold for 60 seconds, then dropped and finished. Disappointed it wasn't better.

Still crushed from Sat. and my groins and hammies are cramping regularly.
