    5. Thanks Peter!

      Steeve, it took me about a week with it, and things really started to click. Since mine was too short for you, I gave it to a lady in our gym that has been struggling with doubles for over a year. She used for the first time yesterday, and she got a few more than normal, but they "sounded" a lot better. Once you hear that sound consistently, they will start to flow. I bet doubles will be a strength of yours this time next year! Good luck!

    6. Nice work today Michael! As usual haha

  30. 1) done.
    2) skipped. Hspu's still don't agree with my shoulder.
    3) 135#. Was letting the bar go up on its own, was strictly focusing on half squatting under the bar.
    4) +/- 30:00. Thrusters were awesome. Du's, are still a work in progress.

    1. Metcon: 11:15 Rx Everything unbroken! I couldn't be happier, although I'm a little surprised I wasn't closer to 10 min? I just picked a pace and never looked at the clock.
    2. MU "practice". Today was the closest I ever came to my first MU. So close.

    Overall, I felt 100 times better than yesterday and I'm going to chalked the day up as a win. I've decided to take the next two days off - and I'll be ready to attack on Friday! Good luck everyone. Rest up, fuel up.

  34. 1.) Done with PVC pipe on 30" box.
    2.) Max PHSPU's: 13
    3.) 145# for 15 (lost my hook grip and slipped out), rested 1min, dropped to 115, and hit 20 smooth ones working on speed and efficiency.
    4.) 9:24Rx (Thrusters felt smooth, all unbroken...however, my doubles were a wreck today. I tripped up on 9 of my 10 sets...really slowed me down.)

    1. I'm starting to use gloves as well. Im finding them great
      I prefer to look after my hands, if gloves don't interfere with my workouts, and allow my hands not to hurt when i hold my daughter, all the better in my opinion.

    2) 6 at a 7" deficit. Feeling better.

    2. reset on round of 7

    This was my last workout before performing 14.1 on Friday. Legs are smoked and I can use two days rest. I wanted to thank you Ben for offering this free resource to the community. I've been following the open template since August and have seen some major improvements. I will probably never make it to the games or even to regionals as an individual competitor but this is by far the most prepared I've been for the open. Good luck to everyone on this blog including my training partners at TakeOver...Ryan, Gilly and K-bo!

    Thanks again!

  53. Had the class in there at the same time, so space was limited.

    1. No hurdles, did the L-shuttles outside.

    2. Worked strict HSPU OTM. I am an embarrassment.

    3. Muscle up wave 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 5, 1, 2, 3 - 32 MU

    4. 11:44 @ 135. This one buried me. Unbroken on the thrusters, kept hitting the squat rack behind me and the girls barbell in front of me (Our gym is tiny). Definitely lost a solid minute messing around with that non sense.

    1) 12:24. Not happy dropped the thrusters in rounds 9 and 8 (and maybe 7). DU's were rough today too. I don't feel like I'm peaking for the open like a lot of others on here. Might take tomorrow and Thursday off and only do mobility stuff.

    2) Rowed a 4k at about a 2:00 pace. No muscle ups due to sore shoulder.

  65. Have had some low back/sciatica/hip pain. Has kept me from training 100%. Here is an update on my training..

    Saturday- retested 3 of the CFGRegionals Team WOD's to see where Peak360 would fall.

    -Would've taken 7th on Jackie in the SE (5:42 for me individually!)
    -OH Squat/BurpMuscle-ups which DNF'ed us last year because of our girls, we would've took 11th on the OH Squat, and 21st on the BurpMuscle-ups, but would've continued on to Day 2.
    -Squat Clean/RC we did in a weird format, but I did the 3 Rd's w/ 2 RC's & 3 Squat Cleans @225, and I FLEW! Felt really good. My individual split was faster than anyone else's wether they did the 2, 3, or 4 squat clean round. Squat Cleans really aggravated my hip.

    Sunday- Rest.

    Monday- Just did Open met-con- WOD took 5:09, and I got 46 burpee BJ's.

    Today- Open

    7:25 @95.. don't see how anyone couldn't gotten low sub-6's.. Guess I just don't have it!

    Muscle-ups.. got through 8/4/1

  69. 1. Plyometic - 6 sets of 6 Hurdle hops - Face the hurdles, rebound every jump.
    Skipped... did 50 burpees instead

    2. Max rep Parallette HSPU
    Did 8 HSPU on 45# plates for 4 rounds instead

    3. 20 Rep Max Snatch
    Tried 85# as last time I believe I did 75#, hit 18.... Grrrrrr... my grips were toast after this.

    4. METCON
    Time: 11:16min
    Took a lot of rest in between rounds, all thrusters unbroken, and messed up on the last two sets of dubs

  70. open:

    1. 10:16 rx - thrusters UB, bad day for DU's which is weird. only 3 or 4 sets unbroken. normally i would get all of these unbroken. i blame the different rope ha.

    2. MU's - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 2, 1, 2, 5 - did all 3 unbroken on last set so just kept going. huge improvements on MU's over the last few months. doing them fatigued isn't as much as an issue.

    6:20 @95# DUs were okay, but should have been faster than I was.

    1-2-3-4-5-6-6-1-2-3. Same as last time!!

    Ready for the OPEN!!

    3. snatch pulls 155/3 x3
    4. Metcon: 9:34. 4 misses DU, one stop for small heart syndrome
    Feel like things are coming along. Wished I was closer to Nasso on metcon. Clearly that's a lofty goal....
