New to the site. When coach writes chin ups does that specify only palms facing you or do regular kipping pullups count as well?

Anthony said...

Its 0430 hours here in Florida and we are experiencing record low temps the say is from a Canadian front. It is curently 27 degrees. Pretty Boy Jeff and I are doing part 1 now then we have an all day SWAT challenge with an of road austere type 5K and may include a 400 yard swim. We will try to get in part 2 if Jeff doesn't mess up his hair.

Steve Smith said...


1. Read the FAQ underneath the News Letter link.

2. On this site, "chin-ups" are palms facing away, kipping if you want. Supinated chin-ups are palms in.

Soren said...

Knee is really unhappy at the moment, tried to FS, but with 40 kilos, it was pulling and making it worse. did some deads instead, again, heavy deadlift pull on the medial collateral ligament, that makes the knee sore

A1: 140kg x 3 x 5
A2: 5 x UB
B: 6:00

No part two today, will try and get parts of it done tomorrow or friday


Anthony said...

Part 1: 155# - 165#X4. Major weakness for me which will addressed with full effort in 2011.

All pullups unbroken. 90% butterfly.

100 standard sit ups. Added some GHDs for exposure. Its been awhile and a hundred would put me out for a week.

Off to the range for some trigger time.

jerf said...

part 1:

A. 155#, 185#, 205#, 225#, 225# (allX3)
B. Broke 4th set to 16/9
C. Non-Rx'd 4:33 (subbed inclines)

My right hand wanted to slide off the bar on the front squats...I've spent the past 6 weeks guarding my LEFT wrist from any kind of dynamic wrist extension. Looks like this is causing a bit of a regression flexibility-wise; which is hard to even imagine, since I already have the flexibility of a petrified forest.

Rigor Alive-is

A2) Subbed 25 unbroken chinups for AMRAP strict chinups: 12,13,14,14,12

stopped there. reduced volume for recovery from virus, and back issues. getting it sorted out with time off and therapy.
long warm up before this which included a low intensity chipper.

Anonymous said...

Only did three rounds due to weather and having to clear snow:
Chins were far from unbroken
Ghds: 4:34

Chris Dunkin said...

Ken c, nice job on the competition.

Part 1

A1) front squat 3×5 @ 115,135, 155

A2) 25 chinups x5 - I had use blue band and then i still had to break the 4th and 5th rounds up. Never worked chin-ups before. They're tough.

B) 100 GHD sit-ups. Totally missed that these were for time. However, I went hard enough to make me want to vom now.

NW said...

A1: OHS @115x3, 125x3
FRTSQT @185x2 sets(2), then 190#(2reps)
A2: broken on first set and 4th.
B: only timed half, didn't realize i missed the button. 1/2 was 2:35. Sets of 4x25 reps.

NOTES: did OHS due to wrist, then felt totally destroyed from it and then said F it and tried FS, found wrist wasn't too bad but def worried about it so couldn't go heavier.

GHD was done on a exercise ball with feet under bar on a smith machine. Not really GHD, still sucked.

ROBO said...

Thanks david looking solid as well

Heavy Evy said...

Jakob, I've always founds Ring pu's to be more demanding for sure, not sure what the ratio would be compared to bar pu's, guess you could do an amrap on each and do some math.

KenC that comp looked pretty sweet.

Jakob said...

heavy eve, thanks for your reply.
yeah, i figured out it's around 3, sounds alright?

Rich said...

A1. 225x3,275x3,315x3,335x3,345x2

Brandon said...

Sean LeFloch said...

Part 2:
250m, 12 burpee, 35 doubles unders: 1:47, 1:50, 1:56, 1:58, 1:56
10min rest
35 double unders, 12 burpees, 200m row: 1:48, 1:50, 150: 1:53, 1:52

This was absolute torture. Was expecting the pain, so I was able to maintain. I was in immense pain after each one of these sets. Def need some more anaerobic work like this. Quads roasted!

Lars said...

A1. 250x3, 4 sets
A2. 25UB, 4 sets

Done...not feeling it today, low back feels a little off and this alone smoked me.

Emilie P-B said...

Part 1:
A1. 115-125-130-135-140(2)
A2. All sets unbroken (these were hard... did the split jerk workout yesterday, shoulders were tired)
B. 5:25 First time doing it. Goal was to do it under 8 minutes. Surprised with that result

Part 2: 40 min after part 1, so I did only the first 5 sets, it was more then enough!!

Lot of trips on DU in set 3 and 5. Only set unbroken was the second one.

Ashley said...

Just realized I did the rep scheme wrong. Hate it when I do that.

Lisa M said...

Yesterdays WOD

no T2B as i am one of the many right now with a shoulder boo boo.

So i tried to do the 3 exercises but the pain as i go into internal rotation or upon lowering into adduction is excruciating in the anterior aspect of my shoulder. So if i can't do the damn excercises to fix the problem then what?????

Lisa M said...

oh and next time i will read the instructions more closely as i only rested one minute between sets for the split jerks and by the 100% round i was thinking to myself i sure wish i had a little more rest... duh!

C. 50 in 3:08. 100 would have put too big a hurt on for the next few days.

Anthony said...

Part 2: 2:00-2:05- 2:07- 2:31-2:40
Second set 2:02-2:10-1:58-:15-1:55

Big difference between these. Smoked

Rory Hanlin said...

part 2

all times in 1:40-1:50 range. took it at about 90%

against my better judgement I hit part 2. Felt bad, might take tomorrow off. still not recovered, competition must have took more out of me than I thought...

NW said...

Part 2:

First half felt like dynamite went off in my lungs.
Second part was ok, just had no power in pushup or the drive for rowing. Strange how switching it up like that makes such a large difference, interesting.

Double Unders were just terrible. Couldn't get the rhythm at all

├╝ber Bania said...

Pinched nerve has subsided, rotation is back in my neck, shoulders, and back. Approached this wod with caution, nonetheless.

A1. 225x3, 245x3, 265x3, 285x2, 275x3
A2. All unbroken

B. anchored situps, no GHD machine. 3:24

Part II:
First 5:
2:18, 2:14, 2:05, 1:52, 1:50
Rest 10min
Second 5:
1:56, 1:58, 1:57, 1:54, 2:02

On the Second 5, hit the wall on the last set. Felt fatigue set in after the 4th set, and sure enough, bonked on the final set.

Steve Smith said...

Part 1:

A1. 275x3, 295x3, 305x3, 315x3, 320x1.75
A2. 10 strict + 15 Kip; All Unbroken
B. 5:46

- Had a difficult time warming up
- Sit ups very painful. It has been a while

Part 2:

1:39, 1:35, 1:36, 1:39, 1:38

1:37, 1:40, 1:37, 1:42, 1:50

- Double unders were tough on the first five, rows on the second five
- Really screwed up the double unders on the last set

- Initially recovered well, but last two rounds of each set were difficult

Steve Smith said...

Unit - I'm glad you took the time to clean up the banana peel. Those things can be dangerous.

PS. Are we going to see you after Christmas?

Outstanding job today. 345# is solid.

Smith, Howell and unit, thanks guys! I'm just trying to hold my own among you dudes!

Brent Maier said...


Todays WODs back to back because of time. I honestly think driving drinker than a skunk would be safer than trying to drive after a workout like this. Wow.

A1 FSx2:
120kg(3) 264#
130kg(3) 286#
140kg(2) 308#

+10m rest
Part II:
1) 1:37
2) 1:48
3) 1:52

5) 1:51
+5 min rest
1) 1:42
2) 1:47
3) 1:58
4) 2:04
5) 2:24 - lost it on the du's and hit a wall

The last 4 days have been wonderful and in line with how they felt leading up to regionals last year which was my best year to date. Thanks and keep it up James!

Stephen B. said...

Monday WOD:
E.complete...all sets UB

notes: did not think I would struggle with and speed under the bar were lame...rough night!
