243, was done with wall balls@ 8:10 took me over 3 minutes to do DUs. Was not expecting that at all. Hopefully my legs will be ready for Sunday to do again.
Sooo yeah, I'm going to one and done this wod. Last year I was sore for a good week or so afterwards. So my one shot will be this upcoming Saturday. I *KNOW* that I will beat my score from last year (I'd link video, but youtube is blocked at work), which was an intimidating 153! I've gotten better at wallballs, and I've gotten better at double-unders. If I can get through the wall balls fast enough, I don't see why I won't get to the muscle-ups, but I haven't re-visited anything close to this since 12.4
2012: 240. No muscle ups. 2013: 244. 4/7 attempts at MUs. Finished Wall Balls 7:22 PR. 1 minute PR from last year.I think I rushed my DUs, ended at 9:39, and MUs. Didn't get enough air in between. Not looking forward to the redo, but gotta do it.
13.3260Last year on 12.4: 148Redid 12.4 about two months ago and got 270. So I will be going for this one again on Sunday to try and get 1 full round in.
That's a helluva improvement!
255Tie breaker - 7:50
Awesome numbers guys! keep it coming!
254...split of 7:38...mu sucked for me
Just realized you didn't have to turn out at the bottom. Wtf!? Might have been able to squeeze out a few more but I'm happy with my performance considering i spent all last weekend drinking ;) it was well worth it
13.3 - 263Shooting for 270 on Sunday.
260 Tie break time 8:573 rep PR from last year. I'll take it!
Going to have to make this a one and done on saturday. My hockey team upset the number 1 seed to continue our playoff run to the finals. My legs are pretty gassed from the game last night. May do an abbreviated run at it today. Maybe 50 wallballs, 90 du's (they're my biggest strength) and some mu's. last year i had about 1:30 left and only got 3 mu's. failed on probaby 3 or 4. Definitely hoping to improve there.Good luck everyone
Anyone know if non-dynamax medicine balls allowed? The typical ones you'd find at a globo gym? One shot at this one wouldnt want my video rejected..
Yes they are. 2 years ago in the open i used a basketball filled with sand. i just put it on a scale first to show the weight. I have a non dynamax ball now and i would say just make sure you show the weight somehow.
257- wall ball time: 7:02- double under time: 8:462 reps short of my score from last year. Want 260 on sunday.
253. Same exact score as last yr. 5:30 ish Karen, 7:08 through du's, and then 5 minutes of staring at the rings. Oh well. Awesome atmosphere at CFNE today with chris spealler in for a visit. Unbelievable to watchImpressive performances by Montoya and Rachel today too. Nice job team!
Both your Teams are killing it!
26/5'9/165/southeast13.3- 2738 reps better than last year
12.4=25413.3=250 with a 9:59 tie breakSuper disappointed with this wall balls crushed me
I know your not happy with this, but great job dude!
Didn't do 12.4 last year, so did partial today to see how it felt. ME wall balls 2:00 (40 seconds on, 10 off) = 60 then 50 DU's then 3-2-2 MU's. Even that short burst was a dose I wasn't expecting. Hopefully it helped to prime the full workout tomorrow at our gym. Anyone have any strategies they suggest?
I have to work mentally on this one. I let myself freak out... Got 240 early (8:01) - and had a solid five attempts at MU - nearly broke my heart because I just couldn't lock out. So... I know what I need to do on Sunday. Even though it is hard to watch the clock wind down, I will let myself rest 45sec to 1 min before even attempting a MU. I CAN DO THEM. I did one before leaving today just to rub salt in my wound :) Any tips or pointers for someone who can do MU, just not that well, yet? :)
Are you kipping the ring dip?
We'll get a cheat sheet out soon and I'm guessing Ben will do a video too, but in the meantime check out mobilitywod for kstars tips
247, 7 more than last year. BUT, I finished DU's at 9:30, last year it was 11:50. No repped on about 10 wall balls so this Sunday 250+
8:11 Karen (with the 10 no reps), 10:14 DU's.I took 7 days off and didn't do anything, my quads are absolutely demolished but I can't wait to do better on Sunday. I'm still a huge noob on MU's and this is the first time I've done wall ball basically since 12.4. Onward and upward!
Great work Kyle!
You too Mark, it's all about progress.
Did this today despite cold windy conditions (my setup for this is outside, no choice). Hands were Popsicles, couldn't feel the ball and was really dry and slippery. Was mentally sapped too, so cold during the setup and trying to beat sunset. Went out too hard, didn't pace the wall balls even though that was my strategy. Wanted to give up half way through wallballs, but kept going. Have never quit on a WOD so wasn't about to. Only got 216 reps. Still beat last years score of 168, but I couldn't do DUs at all last year. Wall balls took me 10:28 (about the same as last year), was hoping for 8 minutes. Will have to see what Sunday brings. Good job y'all.
249Came off double unders at 10:35Got eaten alive by damn wall balls.Sunday is all about 260 with a pacing strategy for the wall ball buy in.
261. DUs: 7:42. WB slowed me down.
2519:44Very happy with this score. My legs are smoked don't think I'll be able to do this on again on Saturday.
250 (8:39 tiebreaker) PRDUs took too long - 5:58 at end of wall balls. That said, last year I did 201 during 12.4, so DUs have come a long way, and I have MUs now.
Thanks Paulo! I'm not content, but I have to keep reminding myself where I was a year ago and be thankful for where I am today. BTW, the custom leaderboard now had editing capability so when I get a chance I'll add you in there along with the others that posted their names after I had created the longer list.
M/5'9 140-144 14 yrs old: 176 RX Thought the 20 lb med ball wasn't gonna be that bad..... Shame on me lol. I look like a penguin right now
You got me, Dwight. The penguin visual made me laugh out loud. Nice work!
13.3- 262 four more reps than last year PR!
12.4 last year got 242Today I got 247. 7:47 after wall balls9:42 after double unders. Looking forward to doing this again.
263, feel like I can make up some time next time around.
257/8:20. 2 more reps than last year.
240... 8:43 tie breaker. not even bummed... NAILED my FIRST EVER ring muscle up just minutes before the WOD started onnnn the first attempt. aaaaand after a few minutes of recovery nailed a second one right after the WOD. cannot wait for sunday!!!
That's awesome! Good luck on Sunday!
You also held the transition position on one of your attempts during the WOD for a solid 20 seconds. It was like the Danny Noonan putt at the end of Caddyshack and I'm certain that on Sunday you will get that ball in the hole!
First time ever doing Karen since I have only been doing this for 6 months now. Got 245 with a 9:42 tie break. I felt pretty good about it, but I'm definitely going to redo and go all out! Great numbers from everyone! Keep it up!
240; 11:04, MU's needed
13.3 = 260 Reps RxTiebreaker after DU's was 8:30
12.4 245 reps13.3. 261 reps! Screwed up my video upload on 13.2 so my score was taken way down. So disappointed but that's why you use an affiliate.Think I can get a few more MU on Sunday
12.4- 240 reps13.3- 250 repsWallballs 6:44Double unders 8:30 again on sunday
251, 6:29 tie breaker. 4 rep improvement from last year. Went down to near sea-level from the normal 7000' training elevation. That + a great environment= a bit of redemption. Finally an Open workout that I can walk away from happy! Not doing that one again.
