Ah, I didn't realize it was mug AND patch. I thought I had to choose between the two. Is it too late to get my patch as well? I'd love one.

This workout needs a name... Some variant of "ass-buster?"

Wish I could be at 200 5th, watching the Eagles getting their sorry asses whipped. But a writing deadline has messed up my weekend so I'll just have to watch the beat-down from home.

Ass-Buster WOD. I thought of doing this in three rounds but thankfully, was talked out of that plan by Margie. So I settled for four rounds as follows: 50 DUs, 15 trap-bar deadlifts (high position) at 150#, 21-18-18-18 thrusters.

Time: 14:58

My double unders were as follows:63-44-52-41; I didn't stop in the first round till I tripped up; in the second round I stopped when I went past 100; in the third round I stopped when I went past 50 and tripped)

Wish I could make it to watch the game - work calls though...

WOD - 10:36 rounds were as follows:

6 rounds of 5 DL @225, 10 Thrusters, 25 DU1 round of 5 DL, 15 Thrusters, 25 DU1 round of 5 DL, 25 DU

25 was a good number of doubles for me, this might have been a little faster though if I'd done DL, DU, Thrusters, DU and gone with higher rep sets for the other two movements.

Work Sets...Back Squat: 235x5x3These felt way stronger than Friday which leads me to believe I was just really, really tired after a long week. Instead of resetting the bench, I'm going to attempt 173 again.

Shoulder Press: 115x5x3Not bad. I still do not have this form down-- I am not the fastest learner, I really don't understand how I got good at tennis-- this is way more simple than a 2-handed backhand. Luckily I had Jeremy to help me work on it and the last two sets were way better.

Clean: 60Kg (132#)x3x3This felt better and was a 7 pound jump. Thank you to Foxy for pointers on getting under the bar. It feels pretty cool to get that weight moving through the air and having it land softly on the shoulders.

Chins ups: 6,6,6,6 Been a full week since I chinned due to that misguided attempt at rock climbing. (sure it was fun, exciting and scary, but my arms are still not 100%) so I figured I should squeeze these in.

Congrats to all you Sunday class participants for just getting through today's WOD. I did not envy you. Not one bit.

I like the addidas commercial. It features my two favorite CF stars. Spealer because he is incredibly my size and Heather cause she often works out with her daughter. I like that it was not overly slick. And yesterday's feats of strength montage... Wow!! I love seeing more or less normal looking dudes squat huge weight. Where are the chicks though?

wod: rx 19:58 225#DLs in 4 sets of 10, thrusters in sets of 15 and DUs in sets of 40. Alternating of course. I was pleased to just make the cut off as I was run down and dazed from a rough work week.

I'm really looking forward to getting some rest and fitness back during Xmas break.

I set this up as below. Deadlifts were at 200#.

15 thrusters50 double unders12 deadlifts15 thrusters50 double unders11 deadlifts15 thrusters50 double unders11 deadlifts15 thrusters50 double unders11 deadlifts15 thrusters

DNF. Got all but the last round of thrusters before the 20:00 cut off. My lower back was tight throughout, made me be careful on the deads. Not sure what I really would have done differently. Maybe more/lighter deadlifts, maybe smaller sets of double unders.

Wow, that was a painful game to watch. Congrats CFSBK Eagle fans; I can only imagine how you feel right now.

DL 55 @ 165lbsThrusters RxDUs 110... they fell apart at the end there.

Quite hungover from last night and nervous about this monstrous workout. Decided to break it into 5 rounds of 40 DU; 15 Thrusters; 9 x 200 lbs DL. First round was in 3 minutes and from there it kept slipping. Final Time: 22:43...had a splitting headache by the end of it but feeling good now.

11:55Deads @ 225 - 4 x 10 x 4Thr @ 45 5 x 15 X 5Du 40-40-40-20-60

Good to be done with deads, but sucked to be doing thrusters and doubles at the end

This was quite a re-entry after 2 weeks away from the gym, especially given my underslept and poorly-fueled state. 16:44 Rx'd, parceled into 5 rounds of 20 doubles, 10 DL @ 140, 20 doubles, 15 thrusters. Thanks Josh M for helping me find a good rope; that made a *huge* difference. All DLs unbroken. All thrusters sucky as can be. I hate thrusters with the white-hot intensity of 10,000 suns.
December 19, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCharlotte
this was fun, in a hard kind of way.

15:47 RX'd.

started off with a break down of:

10 DLs (but 12 on first round, at 135#)15 thrusters40 doubles

plan was to do 5 rounds but changed some things around. found that some of the thruster rounds felt good so would do 20 to make the later rounds less. ended with 80 doubles and they were rough. this was fun though, being able to modify and change programing to make it fit.

then, giants game which was fun until the last 14 seconds. despite the outcome, the company was good!

When I saw this WOD posted with the Again Faster folks last week, I couldn't wait to give it a go.

I decided to do:5 rounds of 15 thrusters, 10 deads at 140lbs.then all 200 doubles.TIME--15:49-I was finished with the thrusters and dl's in under 7mins and then crashed with the doubles. My shoulders were so exhausted from the thrusters that I couldn't get more than 10 doubles in a row. Pretty frustrating.-I'm already dying to try this again though...is Friday too soon? ;) Next time, I'm including doubles in each round or I'll do half in the middle.

I really loved this wod and the fact that we got to choose how to break it up. It was pretty awesome to see everyone strategizing, using the fancy calculators, and contemplating strengths and weaknesses in order to figure out their "ideal" rounds/rep scheme. Nice job everyone!
