    17 rounds + 14

  2. Larry Lowe says:

    9 rounds

    back was burning.

  3. Kerri says:

    12 + 12- Boy is it cold in that warehouse bright and early in the morning!!!

  4. Justin says:

    I think I started off a little too fast. I feel like I should have made it through a couple more rounds

  5. Aaron says:

    10 + 9
    Opposite of Justing, I think I probably started off a little slow on the PS to make sure form was proper. Still amazes me how on some of the lifts, the more fatigues I get, the more my form improves.

    with a whole lotta yelling! That was rough!!

  7. Russell says:


    Rested a lot between every round. My hands are like hamburger meat. I found that a 35 pound bar and 15 pound plates was the only way I could get a hook-grip without the open spots on my hand rubbing on the knurling like a cheese grater. I think Hudson did this too.

    OK, so it’s rather humiliating to post that right below Russell, who’s apologizing for only getting 17+2 due to hands…but then again, it’s only week 3!

  9. Jimmy says:

    just about any workout posted under russles is embaracing

  10. Mandee Miller says:

    10 + 12

  11. tracey says:

    12 + 7. Kat, we look like we are saying a prayer in squat position. LOL
    I agree today was ruff and I have a difficult time not using my arms. Josh was trying his hardest to get it through my thick head, but my habits are hard to break. I will add this to the list of “needs work” exercises.

  12. Robert Montgomery says:

    Power Snatch 8×2

    Sprints: with 10#vest: 40yards x 10sets (rest = fast walk back to starting line)

  13. LeshaS says:

    10 + 7 – I kept getting distracted by Kevin throwing his barbell across the floor.

  14. Robert S. says:


    I’m not very happy with those numbers. Really felt like I should have been able to get to at least 10 rounds. I suppose 2 cups of coffee is not a good choice for a pre-workout snack…….

  15. Jake Naumcheff says:

    12 + 6
    Should have pushed harder, rested too much in between rounds

  16. Russ says:

    9 ronunds even – rested too much. Should do much better next time.

  17. Clint says:


    10 PS rapidly followed by the fetal position.
