  1. on the first Dead section, are we to do one set of two reps? Is this one set supposed to be establishing a 2RM?

  2. Open

    Metcon: 16:30
    OHS- 10 X 2 used 24k KB, def need to work on my squat therapy. first couple of sets were wobbly, but then sets 4-10 were more stable. I did this EMOM trying to hold the squat for 2 seconds each time..

  3. Open:
    Mecon - 15:17
    Kettlebel OHS - used 35lbs KBs, was rather stable but still have to work on my shoulder's mobility. Will do squat therapy tomorrow on recovery day.

    Good wod today but could really feel the impact of being gone for the past month with no working out, little sleep and food. But still excited to be back in it, and looking forward to hitting these wods consistently again.

    1. Good to see you back on here! You missed a lot of good work, but I'm sure there is plenty of good stuff coming soon.

    1. no time, did not do.

    2. a)Only got to 365....still protecting my shin that I bashed last week.
    b) 70% of above was really too light, I think on some of this my % work doesn't work as weel bacause my mid-range tends to be better than my max (comparatively).

    3. 13 reps @ 1.25 PD....reset my stance, 20 reps @ 1 PD, tough stuff!

    PM 1. 13:05, only broke WB on round 4 and 5 all else unbroken, liked this one.

    PM 2.

    3:30.4, grr, wanted to stay under 3:30 for all, lost it in the middle.

    Good training day today, took 2 hours, but it all went well, even though I wanted more on DL...Looking forward to a rest day tomorrow.

    1. Hey fellow Canada East competitor!
      This is Lucas Proulx, we were in a lot of heats together at Regionals this year. Good to see you're doing Competitor's WOD man.
      You got me by 10 sec. on the met-con today! Good job, I was stoked to go unbroken too!

  18. Open:

    1) 13:37 Rx
    - went 5/5/5 for pull-ups, went 10/10 for KBS, went unbroken on WBs (mini rests everywhere. CRUSHED from yesterday...)

    2) 10 x 2 @ 1.5 pood (was very tempted to try the 20 UB and try to match Hobart once I loosened up, but man am I impressed with that! In Nano's too!)

  19. Reg:

    1. Skipped for time

    2. a. 385 could have pulled 405 but would have also slipped a disk. Decided to stay away from that.
    b. 275. Pretty solid weight for the work.

    3. 20 rep double kb OHS- 1 pood

    4. Metcon- 16:08. Went really hard today on this and felt great. Pretty fatigued but well worth it.

    5. Only got one 1000 before I had to leave for work. 3:43.

    Awesome couple of days. Went all the way up until I had to leave for work both days and I definitely feel like it. Looking forward to this rest day.

  20. 1. 11:14--with chest to bar pullups, 2 pood russian swings. C2B Pullups were broken after first round--first pullups in about a month nursing shoulder issue. Everything else unbroken. First three round in 5 min--then slowed considerably due to broken pullups. Love wallballs!

    2. Squat therapy + 3x12 squatting, band face-pulls w/overhead press + squat therapy retest.

  21. Open:
    1. 19:16 (substituted elevated ring rows for pull-ups and I'm not sure if it was any easier - or if it helped my elbow - also 45# KB because it's all I own)
    2. 35# KB OHS - also did some squat therapy where I was able to successfully complete a few reps with my toes against the wall.

    One step (or squat) at a time! Enjoy the rest day everyone.

  22. Open
    1) 14:59
    2) Yeah right.....did OHS pause squats and will do some more wall squat therapy later

    2. 30# each hand

  24. This comment has been removed by the author.

  25. Open/Masters 43

    1) Metcon: 15:59, did the first set unbroken, which still took 2:16, so anyone doing in 12 minute range is sooo fast!
    2) 10 x 2 OHS, this was way harder than it looks, started with 45 lb dumbells for first few, had to drop to 35's for rest.

    Enjoy the rest day!

  26. after it with Burnes again!

    1.) 13:33...not completely satisfied with this but wall balls are a goat and they felt improved so will take it.

    2.) Tried a few sets with #18 kbs, shoulder mobity is junk...did some O.H.S as well

  32. Open/Masters (47)

    1) 14:41 scaled to 10 pullups per round, 35#kb and 14# wb as I'm trying to keep the intensity to build the engine.

    2) 10# kb and had to put my heals up on 10# metal plates.

  33. Had to hit it all in 1 marathon of a session.

    1. 5.35 was the best time.

    2. 405 for the double, 285 for the speed triples.

    3. Got the 12k's then got the 16k's. Tough, really challenges your overhead position.

    4. 15:24. I think that was the time, forgot to write it down, but I am almost sure that is it. I know it was sub 15:30, but barely. This one was tough, my quads are in shambles after the thrusters yesterday then the wall balls today. Ouch.

    5. Done. 3:40.2, 3:41.0, 3:40.0. Legs were shot, just couldn't get to that 1:45 split, was mostly around 1:50.

    KB OHS -#20

  36. 1. Skipped
    2. 425# 2rm, 70% @ 295#. Did not feel fast.
    3. Only have one KB of each weight. Used 25# plates balanced in each hand instead.
    4. 15:07, Pullups felt more smooth than in weeks, but still broken. Multiple wallball misses on target each round.

  37. Open Program
    1) 15:39 - these grip-intensive workouts tend to crush me, and today was no exception. Any tips for improving grip endurance, other than just continuing to work these type of metcons?
    2) 8 sets with 26-lb. KBs, 2 sets with 35-lb. KBs. Did not look like Hobart's but actually better than I expected.

  38. Open

    1. 16:10. Unbroken wall balls on the 1st and last round. Really pushed hard at the end. Should've paced better I think, 1st round was sub 2 min then fell apart. Wanted sub 15. Lungs holding me back. Always impressed by all the beasts on here, you guys drive me to be better. Thank you!

    2. Don't have two of any one size KB at home.. So did two sets of 10 with a 55lb in one hand and 35 in the other. Thought about trying 20 reps but don't think I would've made it past 15. Props to Mr. Hobart on that!

  39. OPEN

    1) 14:57 rx
    My medball felt like an egg. Improving on pullups. Happy.

    2) Done with 24kg KB.
    Easy, tried with 32kg but couldn't get it up.

  40. Open:
    Done at slow pace.... Have to be careful of knee on wall balls... Hopefully the pain goes away this week.
    Squat therapy

  41. Morning Session

    Then OTM D/L 8 x 3 @ 70% = 185#
    3. Tried the 25#, only got to 12. Then did the 15# for 20. Wow this is an awkward movement.
