"experience more than results"
Those stats are f-ing ridiculous.Best of luck Rory, full effort is full victory, look forward to hearing about it when you're done.
Good luck Rory!!
You scare me, Rory.Interesting stuff regarding the light at night thing. My goal in life (sleeping life, at least) is to have my bedroom so dark that it practically collapses into a black hole. Turns out you can't even have light touch your frickin' skin when you're asleep or it mucks things up!
Good luck Rory!those numbers are BADASS!!
Woop some ass Rory! The scariest part is his Filthy Fifty time!
kick some serious @$$ brother!... u f'ing beast!...~gm2
Good luck Rory!!!
part 1: 651,693,683,646 684,684,667,667I think it is safe to assume that Rory wakes up and shits excellence.
Show them what you are made of Rory! I will be cheering for you.
Good Luck Rory. You're a monster.
Saw that study this morning from Science daily, just 15 min I went in and did a presentation on the importance of sleep and stress control when trying to lean out!Only had time for part 2, still not feeling 100%, so avoided the massive effort on the rower.Part 2:7 roundsIt was the pull up that slowed me right down, it was singles!Soren
Jeezez, pretty damn strong and fast, good luck Rory! :)Signed up for a uphill race 27/11 (3.6 km, 8% incline all the way!), so I will sub rowing with running if it fits the session, but today I was really curious about what watt (sorry about that) I would reach:Part 1Average watts): 637.5 WRound 1-4: 651 w, 5-8: 624 w. Lost power on last 3. Best watt 667 (2 rounds) worst 605 w (last round).
Thanks for the support Dawgs, Haven't been posting WODs lately, but the support here is still amazing. I'll do my best to represent well
Part 1.Average Watts 465.Lowest 417W and highest 519WNot very pleased with my result..
Rowing is my nemesis!1: 5612: 5413: 5324: 5751: 5752: 5753: 5454: 561I found that my numbers were consistently higher when I would more aggressively cardio-accelerate prior to beginning the 20 second sprint. Best of luck Rory!
First 4 at damper 7455, 493, 472, 481Row 5 minutes at about 150 wattsLast 4 at damper 10501, 540, 556, 553Don’t think I warmed up well enough at the beginning.Good luck Rory!

m.28.6'4''.225lbsRory, you are an absolute beast. I'm speechless at those numbers.Yesterday's disaster:A1. 319, 330, 341, 352, 374--all 3sA2. 40lb vest--way too heavy--4,3, 2, 4, 2B1. no KB, and no real pistol; did them inside cage holding on to racks; flexibility really exposed by theseB2. Tried to do them on plates, no go with the pace, so just did regular; 2, 4, 5, 4C. 11, 13, 11, 10, 11 (first time)
Absolutely humbling stats Rory. Let everyone know who we are. Good luck.Part 1: 660, 660, 676, 636, 667, 667, 700, 700
Rory! You're such a beast - been missing your posts! Go kick ass this weekend!Was gonna skip today, and do part 1 tomorrow. But then I realized what time I had to get up to do this before I need to get the kids ready for school... So part 1 today anyway.667W, 636W, 667W, 651W, 620W, 636W, 636W, 620Wavg watts: 639,5All done from dead start (first pull just at/just before timer). Damper 10.

Part 210 rds even as RxNotes: Wtd pullups were slow and very broken / singles about 4th rd on. OHS all unbroken and fast. Did this part, first, after shift. Will do pt 1 on airdyne at home later. My son will be at my side, so this way is safer.
Have to switch Part 1 and 2 today because of schedule.Part 29 roundsChins were limiting. Tried to kip but wasn't happening so much. All OHS unbroken.Brandon

OPT,Here are the links to my videos on Pistols:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQmWfigW3N4and Overhead Squat:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4k296Gh28vEThanks again. This has been plaguing me for months!
Part 226.5 kg db between legs, 60 kg OHSResult: 6 rounds + 5/2 repsReally beat up by now and my thighs felt like jelly. To my surprise I was slowed down by the OHS. Had a hard time keeping in balance and breathing correctly. Kind of frustrating, was hoping for 7-8 rounds, but it still felt good.
Sean, I had / have the same problem but it´s way easier if you use Oly-shoes.And to all the other dawgs, good work! A lot of people here that can handle a lot of volume! Crank it up to ELEVEN!
WPU-15kgOHS-50kg8 rounds + 3 WPUPleased!
Any Dawgs out there have any experience with DNA testing for diets? Any advice, is it worth it? A new DNA testing place recently opened up in Edmonton and they offer a diet test, and it seems pretty reasonable at $280.
Rory! Crush it mate!A. 590 avgB. 7 rounds +2 (with 35#)

Yesterday's wod:A1. 365x3-385x3-405x3-405x2-405x1 A2. 1pood x 5, 1.5 poodx5, 2poodx3x3B1. did bw all sets and worked on perfecting the form and drive off the bottom.B2. 6-2-2-3C. :10-:15-:17-:19-:21Notes : definitely still dont have ring hspu's. Looking forward to the day when I get my first one and also string them together. L-sits were a good compliment to balance out the low boack work from the deadlifts. Way to LEAD THE WAY Rory, good luck!
Question for all Big Dawgs and coach(es).When training do you adhere to working with weight you can move with perfect form or do you think working with heavier loads and losing a bit of form is legitimate? Obviously I do mean within reason, i.e. not doing a deadlift that's too heavy and the entire time you have a rounded back or a front squat where you drop your elbow completely.Like today I couldnt keep my legs perfectly straight and toes pointed on my lsits the ENTIRE time so would you all consider that as a "does not count" ? Interested in hearing your thoughts.
Matt- In training I try to keep all movements judged strictly just like in competition otherwise when you are judged you'll be very dissapointed(as far as the L-sits go)On deadlifts and a slight amount of back rounding I mix it up.
Part 2:8 rounds + 5 pull upsUsed weight belt with 45lb plate, all OHS from the floor (power snatch). Everything unbroken, but I was sucking wind between pull ups and OHS.
Part 1, 7:00 am:592615584625612618607607Average: 607.5Part 2, 5:00 pm8 Rounds plus 5 weighted chin ups. Also played soccer at lunch. I came off the seat a few times which hurt my numbers, chalk that up to skill or lack thereof. The pm metcon was good, the pullups felt fine, 7 of the 8 sets of ohs unbroken, dropped on round 6 because I rushed into it. All in all happy with the day and happier for a rest day.

Scaled back to 20# DB for chin ups and 115# for OHS - 9 rounds + 4 chin upsDetermined rib was not broken by the fact I managed to physically do this workout. Might be bruised but that'll heal, I'll just do some scaling on chinups for the next little while till I heal up.
Part 27 rounds + 5 pullupsPullups done with 40lb vest, all sets unbroken and easy.OHS different story, struggle from the second set on, felt like my shoulders just couldn't stabilize it.
