just did yesterdays wod with 30lb dumbbells

6:54, 6 Fouls

That's another one that looks easy on paper, but totally kicked my ass! I was dissapointed I had as many fouls as I did, it was just killer on my grip.

And the 19 burpees are done. Once we get into the higher numbers is it okay to break them up throughout the day? Or is it just lame?
August 21, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterKent
yes you could break them thru-out the day.

i forgot to put the stupid password in yesterday after posting so....that WOD was16:48 w/ 40# DBs-5 FoulsAfter reading Eric's post I'm embarassed about my time & number of fouls. Grip is my limiting factor. Which it shouldn't be considering how I spent much of my lonely adolescence.

Today's WOD

Warm-up-10:57 w/ 2 Pood KB and flip flops. Couldn't find it in myself to pull an Adam and go barefoot. We need to take advantage of this weather more! It won't be here for long.

FSQ-135, 165, 185 (f), 175 (f-poor depth on 2nd rep), 170, 175-If I remember correctly. Not happy w/ my form or my numbers. I damn near did a crunch on the last rep of the final set of 175. Ugly.

15/8/5 pull-ups

Didn't get to row. I'm seething.

Erik, how about those double unders!! Great stuff

Warmest of welcomes to the new Foundations class!

I enjoyed Bethany's Jumping "WOO!" when she found out there were ten more pounds on the bar than she thought.

Foundations did a great job learning the CFWU, press and Push Press.

Juliana,I'm predicting a "painstorm" workout in your future.

David: keep in mind, Juliana's comments don't represent the opinions of the whole Level 1 crew... spare me from the pain storm o mighty one! ;-)

Had a crazy day yesterday so couldn't make it last night, but I could use pull-up and rowing practice, so I'm bummed I missed the accessory work. See y'all this weekend...

Warmup: 2 rounds for time of 21 small black kb (12kg I think? how many p**ds? :P) / run to 5th /10 Burpees/ run rest of block9:48

Running hurts but I kind of love it when we get paraded about the streets of Park Slope, especially when the weather is that nice.

Front Squat:85x390x395x3100x3+w00 (PR)105x1 then fail

Always a pleasure to squat with you Margie - your last 2 sets were especially exciting to watch.

Juliana, damn girl, nice work on the 115!

Pullups on blue band: 8/10/8 <-- no progress there! hmm....
