TWT was 11min. Green band for CTB, 65# OHS
Thanks Derek! Great work 6am

After yesterday, I figured I would take it easy…….thinkin’ I need a bit of a break.

1. 1:00 @ 95#
2. 1:04 @ 125#
3. 1:04 @ 135#
4. 1:04 @ 135#
5. 1:19 @ 135#, core broke down in this round and had to stop a couple times in my V-ups.

The potency of this WOD is magnified when you consider that my working time was only 5:35………………….think about that………………

11:50… Total working time 5:35
Pull ups Rx
OHS at 105
V Up Rx

12:52 total time.
6:52 working time.
OHS at 105# – Unbroken each round, but the last two rounds were tough.
All else rx’d.

TWT: 7:17
Pull ups: 2 medium bands
OHS: 55#
V ups: rxd
Still feeling beat up, sick and I slammed my thumb in the car door today and can’t hook grip which is why I went stupid light on the OHS.

Plus I whipped myself on the other thumb with my skipping rope which hurt worse than the one I slammed.

I’m taking a couple days off……

Thanks Ragnar

Sandy, your thumb stories are funny!!!!

Well, I did not pay attention to my time per round – I paid attention to not getting in the way and to not falling over.
Total time was 13:39 – so divide that by 5….ish.
Great workout tho’ , Thank you Derek and coaches who keep me from destroying myself…and I came back after Tuesday so that’s good.

Oh wait…you want to know what I DID
11 lb bar for overhead lifts –
rings for pull-ups to chest
V sit to bent knees
Eventually I’ll get the lingo

Total time 12:39

Did all strict C2B pull ups (got a band out just in case but the class was so busy I couldn’t find a stool to use so had no choice to do strict.) Have to remember that I am stronger than I think.

65 for all OHS

V-ups as prescribed

Total working time 5:09! I really felt like I crushed this one. Especially for an old guy!

Sorry think total working time should be 6:38. Still crushed it!

R1: 2:24
R2: 4:44
R3: 7:10
R4: 9:34
R5: 10:35
Total work time: 4:35

Everything was unbroken.
C2B: tried to pull elbows back not push chest forward
OHS: favourite squats! squats snatched first rep then just hung on.
V-ups: Interesting discussion with Brett and Josh about hollow holds, measurable, repeatable and standards. This WOD, I touched my feet and hands behind with every V up Next time I’ll do hollow holds to V ups.

Thanks Josh, great warmup. Awesome job 10am.
