115# 9:51. Still battling unexplained tendency to jump backwards on power cleans. I had a couple that were “fixed” today. Also, not releasing my grip as the elbows come around always causes my left wrist to hurt like hell.

Prepare to be deeply depressed about the state of our society:
Don’t even get me started on how much this whole thing has pissed me off since the first day I heard about it. But–didn’t I read yesterday on Foxnews that Huertas was cleared?
The fact that our guys have to go through this is COMPLETE and UTTER BS after what those guys did to the Blackwater contractors… Oh, I could go on and on, but my language is sure to get pretty ugly – FAST!
When did the lines between ROE, UCMJ, and the Criminal Justice System become so blurred?

As always, nice dropping into the 7am class for a few laughs…
And, Jake, we’re still waiting for that official name change!!

Back finally felt “ok” today, so I did a max effort 500m row. Previous PR was 1:30 so I was confident I could break to 1:29
Pulled a 1:27 pace all the way to the last 150 meters, slowed to 1:33 and then through sheer will power and Kevin yelling at me got it back to 1:31, but let the rower coast the last 5 meters instead of pulling another short fast stroke… ended up with 1:30.1
very very frustrating. I know I can get 1:29 next time though when I’m off steroids and better focused.
Look at the bright side, the steroids will bring your deadlift and back squat up. Plus make your biceps look bigger.

3:48 – pretty stoked, i was shooting for a sub 4 and got it. arms are shot!
Way to go Josh!! You smoked it!
Great job, Josh!
Josh that’s awesome. Did you link all the cleans or pause at the bottom and re-dip ever?
Josh, GREAT time!! Way to rock that WOD!!
I linked the first set, 8/7 split on second, 6/5/4 split on third. I really worked on dipping to the power position and forcefully opening the hips on every clean, was able to catch almost all in a standing position. my grip gave out first which caused me to break it up, something that has slowed me down on a few WOD’s lately. started to arm pull late in the third round, just kinda succumbed to fatigue of the forearms and was really over gripping the bar at that point.
Started to do this one with rx weight and after 5 warmup reps I figured out that was a piss poor idea. I have really got to work on fully opening my hips and not arm pulling.
Nice work Josh!
Hey Robert… still on for tomorrow? Do you mind sending me your address? firstname.lastname@example.org
We are still on. Email is sent. See you tomorrow!
Did real burpees (not prego ones)
I am very impressed that you did real burpees!! That baby is going to come out in excellent shape 😉
Nice work Josh!!
Nice work guys! I’m feeling like a fat lazy bastard looking at all your scores. Been in Sierra Vista, Arizona all week.
As Rx’d 9:32
I love this picture Russell! Makes me want to jump in that water!
I scaled to 75lbs and finished in 7:25. Linked first 15, then broke the cleans up into sets of 5. All burpees unbroken. Great WOD.
Gotta push through my new burpee “comfort zone” into a new one. I have grown accustomed to a certain slow yet steady pace. Thank gawd Russell was there to yell at me or it would have been more 4:40ish.
Great Job Josh and Tyler! This thing was a creeper.
my wrists are wrecked this morning!
100 ring dips then fast burpees….ouch. Or I’m just getting old
