  1. Thanks, Ben. Now I can go to bed!

  2. ha! I tried to stay up! lol mg 430am wake up time forced me to call it an "unknown"..... but I checked first thing this am!!

  3. No lateral bounds
    Did wod first. 13:01. Went slow on mu's trying to be a little careful and thy ended up ugly anyway and it translated to the rest of the wod

    Ohs. Stayed light on these being careful. Still heaviest I've gone on these in months -185, 205, 225
    Fs 275, 295, 315
    Bs 365, 385, 405

    Felt sluggish today. Need to do a better job at getting more sleep

    1. It's the open stress man lol I slept like garbage the last 2 nights too. I feel you!!!

  5. South East/M/155/25

    OHS 155,185, 205 fail x 2 sets stopped there

    My shoulder is still not cooperating, felt better today. 185 felt light but my shoulder wouldn't allow anymore. Was hoping for more.

    FS 275,295,305
    BS 315,335,350(Happy with this)

    Wod 11:33

    Singles on the cleans, FS unbroken, jerks first set unbroken, second set 2/3, third set 1/4 last set 1/3/1. Failed my last jerk, was going for sub 11 minutes and then that happend.

    MU first 3 sets unbroken, last set 3/2

    Awesome day overall.

  6. 1)
    30" done

    OHS: 205,215,220(F)
    FS: 225, 245, 255
    BS: 255, 265, (Legs cramped up bad, long weekend caught up with me.)

    3) Tried rolling out my legs and getting some fluid in before I started this but legs were still cramping bad so I cut out the squats.
    5 PC
    5 Jerk (Last three sets UB)
    5 MU's (All UB)
    then cashed out with 100 DU's

  7. Hi every one! I've been following your blog for a while now but have never commented before. Thanks for all of the great WODS and coaching! I am a coach myself and it is nice to be able to shut my brain off from time to time and rely on this blog.

    Central East/ M/ 215
    1) 24"
    2) OHS: 215, 235, 275 (Not only 1 RM PR but I did it for two)
    3) 11:00 I felt tired after re-doing 13.1 yesterday. Mentally and physically a great WOD.

  8. Active rest day today. Did a 10 min. row with the screen down and did 3 sets of 50 singles and 25 DUs, just messin' around with some goats.

  9. 1. 31"
    2. OHS 198-220-232(failed on 2nd rep).
    FS 242-275-297
    BS 319-341-363(failed on second rep- slid off my rack and I dumped behind)
    Middle to lower back was feeling quirky during this....
    3. 9:58...clean-3/2 into FS 4/1 into unbroken jerk and the MU, which were 3/2, 2/2/1, 2/1/1/1

    1. Unbroken on first set of MU

    2. I like the FS 4/1 you did. I think that would of made the jerks alot easier for me. The cleans were never an issue, just after the FS doing the jerks unbroken was difficult. Good idea.

  10. My schedule is falling all kinds of out of sync with the blog. I'll be doing the open wods on Thursday and Saturday for 13.1-13.4, 13.5 and beyond I'll be back on schedule. Today I did last saturdays FGB, in pretty shoddy conditions, but I got 241. Terrible considering that's only about 6 higher than when I did it back in September 2011

  11. 1. Lateral jumps at 24"

    2. OHS 115-125-135 / FS 155-165-175 / BS 180-185-190.

    3. 16:41 and 115# instead of the 135#. All MUs done strict w/ no kip. Stomach not feeling great during extension type stuff right now.

    1. Ha, ballin'...or pregnant. The kip feels like it's tearing my insides out right now so I've been subbing for strict versions of anything hanging.

    2. What?! Preggo strict muscle ups? Whoa.

  12. 1. OHS 95-100-105 (using metal plates, didnt want to drop) FS 135/1@145/145 BS 150/160/1@165 serious technique correction needs to happen here. My knees still dive in. Even wheb i'm screaming in my head "knees out!"
    Weakness work:
    2. Ring holds in locked out hollow OTM 5 min 27-19 seconds
    3. Butterfly pull up technique 20 minutes, got up to 3-4 of them linked.

    Tomorrow I start with a gymnastic coach, stoked.

  15. 1. About 34 inches or so. Tried starting on the opposite side of what was comfortable and some of those were pretty funny. Surprisingly challenging. Conor can attest that I was a complete spaz on a couple, jumping into the sticks and whatnot.
    2. 185, 205, 225 - OHS, 265, 275, 285 - FS, 295, 305, 315 - BS. I think I failed one of these but honestly can't remember.
    3. Done at about 90%. Sort of for time... 15:45 Rx. After doing 13.1 for the second time last night I just wanted to get the work in today.

    OHS 135-155-185-205, FS 225-255-275, BS 295-325-345. From looking at y'all's numbers, I need work on my OHS... Which I already knew.
