Monday 3/23/09

Still not warm enough to go outside so, 3rd floor gym. I hope you worked out over break.

Eva (-)

For time.

5 rounds of:

800m run (2 x Gym loop)
30 x Kettle bell swings (53lb/35lb)
30 x Pull ups

Post time to comments.

The reason this is an Eva (-) is because as Rx'd this calls for 70lb Kettle bells, which we do not have, yet. It's okay this one sucks plenty with 53lbs. Welcome back.

39:28.74 (as rxd w/ 70lbs DB)

It will be apparent once MAJ Blackmon posts why I am showing my time to the hundredth of the second...

Also, Tex had I been judging this morning, I would have awarded your dynamic exit from the pull-up bar this morning a 10.0.

Rx'd (w/ 70# DB) - 46:40

Need better ROM on KBS

Chat said...

38:01 w/ 53 lb kbs

Pull Ups were a weak point, along with being dehydrated.

Tex said...

45:46 (60# dumbbell 1-2, 53# KB 3-5)

The 'dynamic exit' was a result of grip failure as I was kipping for the last rep of the 4th set. I really wanted to quit after the first set. Dan and Chris, you are two sadistic and masochistic individuals.

39:29.1 (as rxd w/70lbs DB) if this was the olympics then yes I would have to accept a silver medal from MAJ Wylie...as is, I think that I will file a grievance with the head office in that 1. I think MAJ Wylie started his watch after I did at the beginning of the run, and 2. I am sure his watch is not calibrated to the rotation of the earth. I actually called CrossFit HQ and they told me that this was a statistical tie. I also am sure that the buttons on my watch are harder to push than those on MAJ Wylie's therefore I had to do more work just starting and stopping my watch. Either way...good workout, I love this one.

44:31 (w/53lbs KB then scaled to 35) one of the tougher WODs for me due to the # of reps

NM said...

42:05 (as rxd w/70lb DB)

I wanted this one to be over from the end of the first round...or earlier.

Need a clinic on proper kipping pull-ups...they hurt me bad this AM.

Bobby said...

40:35, but I had to scale the pullups down to 15 on the last 3 sets. I tore a callous on my hand, so I didn't want to push it.

BHaley said...

39:47 3 rounds w/ 55# DB, 2 w/ 53# KB

I like to think of this workout as penance for sins committed to my body over Spring Break.

I meant to put a shaming in my earlier post...Pete, Colin, Dana, did you guys have some THS today? Good job to Chuck for showing up, the rest of you I expect to see times on here later today.

PTisFREE said...

41:50 (53lb) Pretty much had no grip strength by the fifth round

nate said...

39:51

pushups still definitely the weak spot

nate said...

as you can tell I just did the workout and am a little tired. I meant pull-ups.

Mac said...

40:26. Wow...I was talking to a guy on Saturday who has never done a WOD, and was trying to convince me that CrossFit is insufficient training for endurance. I'll invite him to try this on for size.
On another note, don't eat lunch before attempting 40 minutes of this suckfest.

Didnt do 40 pull ups.
Bad smoker. Arms were dead and I had some tendonitis before break so I stopped when my arms gave up. Crossfit right before grappling really sets you up well for bad things...

JRez said...

44:45. Had some serious THS after spring break and first day of classes. Ran hard, but the kettlebell swings and pullups were a real kick in the pants.

Griff said...

39:16 w/ 55lb db
What a great thing to come back to. Need to work on pullups

upty03 said...

46:39 with 55# DB. Really dislike Eva.

Demet-hook said...

Subbed pull ups for push ups b/c something didn't feel good.

My time was 28:20 NOT RX'd obviously...

dkeys said...

Serious case of THS...could only squeeze out three rounds before losing heart...24:58...pull-ups need some work...easily my weakness..a lot has to do with my hands getting torn up...I'll make amends for this shameful display...
