Post your times and scores to comments in one post if you can, thanks.
Enjoy the day; rest on Sunday and Monday.
We begin again on Tuesday bright and early.

Clearly, no one else lives in Calgary. I will be wearing some mittens for the equipment transport portion of WOD 1.

Dr Lisa said...

I am pretty sure my neighbors are going to get quite a kick out of this!! Hopefully nobody steals my equipment as I will have to leave it on the street out of sight. Should be fun!!

Anonymous said...

Hopefully the gym owner doesn;t mind me leaving equipment outside and no cars run it over and it doesn't get stolen. Fun day ahead.

Arjuna @ Calibrated Training Systems said...

Sorry, but I got 2 questions on Standards:
1. For the burpees; am I correct in saying you have to jump to a vertical position over bar and clap behind hea? Or are we just diving over bar.
2. Clean & Jerks: are there any press outs allowed or does it have to be a legit Jerk?


MikeR said...

A suggestion. If you can start with your equipment in the gym. Run out a 200M. Grab the equipment and run another 200M. That way you aren't leaving the stuff unsupervised in the middle of the road.

Does that work?

Unknown said...

Sorry Mike, I have never seen snow and James said he would bring me a toque just in case.

Arjun, there is no clap behind the head requirement for the burpee. Just hit the deck and jump over the bar with both feet.

Any clean and any jerk. Press outs allowed.

Arjuna @ Calibrated Training Systems said...

Our pullup bars at CFN prevent us from doing chin over verticals plane. So does this mean we do CTB or regular pullups??

Unknown said...

Regular pull ups will do just fine.

OPT said...

mike r, you mean 100 m out and back?
i.e. @ gym, run 100 m out and back, pick up BB, run 100 m out and back, run 100 m out and back alone, pick up plate, run 100 m out and back, etc...then i think that might work...

Alex Nettey said...

Busy work day ahead so I had to do all 3 in 1 hour. Here are the results

Event 1 - 11:56. Run took about 7:10. Used an indoor 60m hallway for the runs and hope I did it right (1200m total of running). Thrusters/pullups as rx'd at 95#, unbroken and in 4:11

23 min rest

Event 2 - 6:33 as rx'd at 115#, no missed double unders. Burpee jumps were slow and I maybe could've pushed the snatches to be faster as this weight is manageable enough for me but the results are what they are

8:30 rest

C & J 1RM - 265#. Not a pr just all I had time to get to. Had 285# in my hands as time expired but no juice in the legs after the previous attempt and minimal rest

Missed the last BD comp so it was fun to get this one in. Look forward to seeing how everyone does. My advice is don't do it all in an hour or less :)

MikeR said...

Yeah that's what I meant.

BK said...

We had so much fun today at CFP . 22 athletes rocked the workouts with 5 doing as prescribed .

Brian Gregory said...

Coach or anyone else with advice,

I have been following the big dawgs blog a week behind recently to taper for a comp on Nov. 20. The WODs for the comp were just released -

Any advice on whether I should change up the wods (from the blog) for this last week? The comp is only one day and I'm not sure on rest times btwn wods yet. Game day fueling advice?

Brent Maier said...


1) 11:54 - Run complete in early 6m range when I glanced at clock. Fran took way too long once I hit the 15 pullups. Not happy with performance on this one.

PTS said...

WOD 1: 13:28
WOD 2: 7:10
Wod 3: 245 (PR)

Fueling was off as I woke at 530 and hunted then did the wods immediately after. I hadn't moved my bowels and I had to take a crap halfway through Fran. WOD's 2 and 3 felt much better.

Snatch felt waaaaaayyy heavier than it should have...thinking maybe thrusters and run from event 1 helped with that...tons of fun...thanks again for the programming opt

* The design of our pullup bars at CFN prevent us from doing chin over vertical plane. So we just made sure every athlete had their entire head over bar on chinups. I understand this probably skewed our times for the better.
*we had 22 athletes compete and had a fucking blast! Wod 1 was absolutely horrible!

Huge thanks to Autey @ CF Edmonton for hosting us. Really appreciated. Great host, great facility.

15 mins rest between wods. First time testing shoulder in a couple of months. Felt good, but could really feel the lack of work I have done since. I was nowhere near ready for this. I have a lot of catching up to do.

DSC Staff said...

1 - 10:02

2 - 5:56

3 - 245lbs (PR)

Rest as rx'd

Notes - Ended the run on the first part around 5:20, then just tried to hold on. Missed a couple of snatches in the third round of part 2, had to stop and compose myself then finished well. 245 is a Clean and Jerk PR, which I couldn't have been more surprised with considering how heavy the other sets felt.

Overall good day, thanks to Anthony and Alison for the workouts and to OPT for the opportunity.

CFN crew - sorry couldnt make it down there, sounds like it was a great turnout. Arjuna you're a beast man, hope to get some more training in with you Pete and Steve before sectionals.

Nathan H. said...

Rocco Di Jerlando:

11:55 (umm, horrible - 7min run, 4:55 Fran - paced run, broken on Fran)

Not training metcons really caught up with me on that first wod. Yuck. Will check times against video and confirm, uploads to come.

Sean LeFloch said...

Nice job everybody. James and CF Redline, thanks for putting together some great workouts. This was my first crossfit competition, and I will never forget it.

jules/Crossfit Performance said...

BK posted for me this morning...squeezed all 3 workouts RX'd into a 90 minute session. Legs were cooked on WOD 2..did the workout in sneakers instead of lifting shoes and felt the Squat snatch wasnt as fluid...broke on double under's on 20 in the 2nd round!
Failed on the jerk part of the C & J at 155 3x but I have never successfully hit a 155 clean so thats a plus!

Great coaching from BK and incredible training led up to this 2nd comp...
A: 12:45
B 8:56
C. 145

NW said...

Some scaling today, done at globo gym so worked with what I have

1: couldn't run so just did Fran, sorry coach.
Time: 3:03 @75# 1 min pr!

2: hang squat snatch @ 85#
Dbl unders not all unbroken
Time: 5:27

3: 190# clean 5# pr! No jerk as wrist is pissed at me.

Scaled to strength and ability. While not to compete it was a personal victory for me - super excited.
Coach, thanks for the great programmming! I owe it all to you!

Jonathan Thom said...

13:10 (240 meter course)
225 pounds (pr w/ press out)

Going to switch to the programming my coach has lined up for us leading up to competition season, so this will be my last post for awhile. Can't wait to get back to training with the folks at my gym on a regular basis.

Thanks for the GREAT workouts James; I've seen my fitness improve massively. And thanks to the rest of you for putting up some inspiring times and weights for me to chase these last few months. It was fun to be in the Big Dawg pack for a while...can't wait see you folks on the top of podiums in the coming year!

One hour rest b/t events. Sweet sequence. Was not expecting to PR on last event. Quads were smoked. Switched to PC in warm-up. Thanks to Redline for the WODs and OPT for making me and my crew better every week.

Heavy Evy said...


Fun day, Thanks to Auty @ CF Edmonton for having us, Squeezed it all in an 1.5hrs! I'm going to have to get back at doing more metcons! Took it easy on the C&J, as I went heavy yesterday with it.

Brent Maier said...


1) 11:54
2) 5:03 - Few trips on 3rd round, rushed into it and it cost me.
3) 255# - Only had 15 min rest for this and it wasn't enough. Energy levels were low after the clean. Not my PR but it will have to do.

WOD#1 was a bruser!

Brian Maier said...

1: 9:22
2: 6:48 - squat snatches killed me
3: 235lb - disappointed...20# under PR...nothing left in the legs.

Brian Maier said...

only had time for 1 of the events today, my collar bone isn't 100%, didn't think thrusters and Cleans would be a good idea.

Weight room was closed, of all days. Had to do some serious subbing.

Wod 1: Carried 60 sand bag for weighted parts of run, subbed wall balls for thrusters - 11.39

Wod 2: 9:24
3 rounds
7 DB snatch each arm (30# DB)
7 sledge hammer hits on tire (8# sledge)
9 burpees with jump onto 30" tire (crazy hard)
30 UB DU's

No time for Wod 3 had to get to work

Garage Crossfitter said...

Part II
8:31, in between hanging hemlock boards in my gym...
First time snatching and doing DU since August. Form felt awesome on both, lungs where burning. My flexability has improved greatly over this layoff and i can already see a huge difference in my form. Possibly part 1 later, pullups will have to be from a tree branch as the gym doesnt have the pullup rig built yet. Pics of OPT East coming soon...

Martin Altemark said...

As Bear said: we was part of the team that won the team title at the Swedish CrossFit national championships this weekend.

First event was a run
Second event was a FGB-styla AMRAP gauntlet
Third event was max lifts
Fourth event was moving weights and do burpees with weighted vests

Got last in the first event (our girls are not good runners), but with one second placement and two first we still took the 1st place in the end. It was very much fun and I did a 110kg Jerk PR which was cool.

Thank you OPT for getting us ready, and thanks to the community for inspiring us! I will take some time off training and will be back with reloaded batterys in a month or so!

Dr Lisa said...

135 :(

Building Fran was Fn brutal!!! And my oly lifting still sucks. That was painful but fun. I feel very out of "shape" right now just due to inconsistency in training. I am a day late as i had kids swimming yesterday morning and a funeral in the afternoon so could not fit the workouts in yesterday.
