From Tues.
Part 1: 9:57 for 4 rounds. Horrible.
Got everything wrong today. Interupted sleep, ate too close to training, dehydrated. Coordination all over the place.

Kent said...

Run today in the snow with bad footing. Hard to judge pace but HR 160 90% 120 70%

Marathon, Hmmmm...
Ran alot when younger, longer distance track mostly. One thing I am good at is setting a pace and holding it for a long time. I think I could run 1:50ish 400m's for a long time. My last 5km this summer was just over 20min which is a 1:36/400m pace. So my guess is 3:15ish if everything went right.

Reality check, the Boston marathon winner basically ran 105.5 consecutive 1:13 400 m's. Unreal

Part two later today

NCovino "CFRedline" said...

Part1 5:00AM

Hips were hurting me this morning. Felt it in the bottom.. BS-hips below knees.. FS and OHS "Ass to Grass". Part 2 after work hopefully around 530 6pm
Diet has been good but sleep has been off. Very sore laying in bed.

Garage Crossfitter said...

A 195 215 225
B 155 175 195
C 135 140 145

part II 15 min later
2 rounds unbroken then shut er down.

I warmed up for over 30 min, very sore and every lift felt 2x heavier than it should have. I figured part 1 would maybe stimulate CNS and get me through part II, wrong. I could feel energy draining during round 2, no pop left. Lots of rest and stretching coming up.

Also any big dawgs that have any tips on what to stretch and any dynamic warmup movements before running because my low back-thorasic is super tight from over extending when i run. i stretch my psoas and hip flexors daily and do lots of Tspine mobs but i still run overextended, not cool.

Rich said...

A. 329 3x3
B. 275 3x3

Rory Hanlin said...

C. 250

All squats A2A. failed on the last rep of the last set of OHS.

Paul Smith said...

Rory, just notice your profile on the crossfit games website. I don't know if that's welcomed attention or not but congrats anyway.

ROBO said...

A. 340 high bar
B. 285
C. 225

225 is my 15 rep max but I am very fatigued. Had a couple failed rounds that I had to redo but got all reps. Ill give part 2 a try but im pretty spent.

30 min rest

Part 2:

4rds unbroken and 5th broken on wall balls.

3rds unbroken and 4th and 5th were broken.

Paul Smith said...

Part 1 from Dec 28:

10 min rest

5K @ about 90%

I probably should have taken today off. Feeling fatigued. 1st set of DU UB but the rest were all broken up. 5k felt closer to 95%.

Steve Howell said...

Bench Press;
Set 1 @ 79kg x 3
Set 2 @ 90kg x 3
Set 3 @ 102kg x 3+ (+4)

From Dec 22nd

Time = 7:54

* pervious was 8:26
* Cleans; 8+4/4+3+2/4+2
* Muscle ups; 6+3+3/3+3+3/3+3

Emilie P-B said...

A. 140lbs
B. 120 lbs
C. 85 lbs
(Used 80% of 1RM)

30 min rest

Wall ball/Pull ups:
1- UB (7kg) / UB
2- 15-10-5 (7kg) / UB
3- UB (5kg) / UB
4- UB (5kg) / UB
5- 22-8 (5kg) / UB

Decided to lower the weight of the ball on 3rd round to keep doing it unbroken. 7kg was to heavy to do 5 rounds UB, but 5kg was too light, Needed something inbetween. 5kg wasn't physically difficult, it was more a mentel issue. Lost my concentrartion in last set and fell on my butt at 22nd rep!
Pullups: really hard for the grip, forearms were burning!
This workout kind of remind me the 3rd wod at Regionals last year......
(sorry for the long post again... I'll be working on shorter post next wek ;)

Between thrusters and wall balls I fatigue fast during WOD's so these last couple training session have been good for me to work on these weakness.

Joel B. said...

First day back from self imposed time off. Wasn't sure if 80% was perceived effort or % of 1RM. went with % of 1rm.

A: 195, 200, 205
LBBS was 265 last...did HB today.

B: 180, 185, 190

C: 140, 145, 150

Scaled couplet to 25 WB and 20 cu for first day back. It was plenty.

Thanks for weighing in yesterday ROBO. You are right that one can't make up time. I always feel I am leaving it on the table missing but I need to get past that. Hate missing the chance to prove improvement on the tests although I know the improvement is there.

Kent said...

On a road trip with limited gear so had to make a few changes..

A. Hbbs 80kg x5x3
B. Fs 72.5kg x3x3
C. Ohs 70kg x2x2, x1x2

notes: no rack today so had to clean and jerk before squating. OHS was not on today. Pretty busted after the last few days.

Adam Rogers said...

C-skill work with bar

Part 2
All wallballs unbroken
3 unbroken sets of pullups, then 14, 15

Casey S. said...

BS 135-3x3..Felt pretty easy I suspect my 1RM has gone up a bit, since I did do 15reps at 155 at a comp. the weekend before last.
FS 110-3x3...Felt good!
OHS 95 3x3...not 80% my shoulders were not having this today so I stayed decently light on these.

Part 2:
All wallballs unbroken and did strict pull-ups (def.broken)since my shoulders have been bothering me lately (rotator cuff issues), plus I need to build those bad boys up again! Had a fellow trainer work on my shoulders for a while, which made them feel a lot looser and better. Gotta keep up the mobility for my internal rotation problems! I surprisingly feel awesome for 3hard days of WODs though...esp. since this this my first week of your programming, like it so far!

slow jerf said...

Part 1:

BS- 295
FS- 225
OHS- 155 (70%. afraid of dropping weight at globo.)

Gaspasser said...

305 BS
255 FS
185 OHS

Brent Maier said...


BS: 132kg
FS: 120kg
OHS: 88kg

WB/PU's: All WB were 30# @ 10' and unbroken. Modified PU's to a 25 rep complex. After first round of WB, I thought it was a mistake and almost dropped to 20# but stuck it out.

OHS felt very heavy and uncomfortable the first set but 3rd round was easy because I was committing to the movement much better. Post WO with external db rotations. Shoulders smoked!

Anonymous said...

This is Nate.

Calves are RIDICULOUSLY sore. Had a back injury a couple weeks back doing squats so I kept it light:


All reps done slow, controlled and deep.

15min rest

Part 2: Unbroken, 20#/10'

Much needed Chiro tommorow.

Heavy Evy said...

After those deadlifts on tuesday, I honestly didn't think I was going to get another wod in this week as my lower back was trashed, but I spent a bunch of time sitting on the lax ball, worked the glutes/hammies doing the leg pumping mwod stuff, and it definately helped me get out of bed easier this morning.

Ross Blake said...

part 2.

subbed barbell thruster @ 20kg

Set 1, 2,3,4: UB/UB
Set 5: 15,15/11,9,5

vadim said...

Happy New Year,dear friends!

vadim said...

Happy New Year!
Good trainings and best results!
A lot of PR's!:)))

Chris said...


I have looked at the Calgary Crossfit Site and have been trying to workout what the differences are between the 2 programs. The OPT site is obviously split into 2 sessions and there seems to be more lifting and strength work. Can I presume that the OPT Site is for the more advanced trainer? I like the look of the OPT Routines but cannot afford that amount of time, how would anyine suggest I combined the 2 into 1 session without burning out. Thanks Chris

unit said...

~3.5 hrs (8:00/mi)... guestimate...


jerf said...

Part 2: (subbed 45# thruster for wallball)
