This is pretty funny

4 rds, Thrusters scaled 115#
20 min cut off
MU’s got me this morning. I was linking first 2-3, then it would take my 10 attempts to get the last couple. Very frustrating! I need to apologize to Matt, Mandy and Paul for my outbursts. 🙂 On a positive note, I was able to link my Thrusters and get the last 3 rounds unbroken…probably should have gone to 125#.
Tracey–just wanted to see if you were gonna be around this afternoon. I’ll be at the 4:30 class & wanted to talk to you about getting my measurements done, etc. in prep for me starting my own personal “Zone Challenge.” Bought the book and did a lot of reading this weekend, so I think I’m gonna start next Monday (conveniently AFTER the Super Bowl, right??) 😉 Thanks!!
I’m trying to get to the 5:30…but will be pushing it. Maybe tomorrow???
Thanks! Not in a big hurry, haha, so whenever we can do it is fine with me. See ya tonight! 🙂
27:42 as rx’d
All thrusters unbroken, but all muscle ups in singles. Muscle ups were pretty slow, but I didn’t miss once until the last one. I missed it 4 times before actually getting the last one. Muscle up form needs a lot of work.
Good job! Glad to see you’re not sandbagging before this weekend’s games 🙂
I tried to sneak by with just 135 on the bar. Russell called me out on it right before we started, and I couldn’t think of a good excuse.
25 minute cut off (4 complete rounds)
thrusters as rx (very freakin heavy)
*I basically did one at a time–20 cleans at 155.
bar muscle ups
Slade great up close and personal photo!!
Sort of a Lou Ferrigno going green face…..or maybe an Exlax poster child…. 🙂
Thrusters as rx’d. Yes, very freakin’ heavy. Able to do 2 or 3 before dropping the bar to the ground because I DID NOT want to clean each time. I have a nice bruise on my sternum from being indecisive about where I wanted the bar to drop to once…
20 min cut-off: 3 rounds even
3 rounds even
20 minute cut off
Thrusters as rx’d
Assisted muscle ups
-As rx’d: 155 pound Thruster, 5 reps
-Sub’d: 5 MU attempts + 5 MU progressions
Completed 3 rounds + 5 thrusters
I haven’t spent enough time learning the muscleup. I probably made around 20 attempts actually. I get so close and then… rejection.
I definitely provided a healthy portion of profanity for the 11:30 class today.
3 rounds at 25′ as Rx’d. I was excited. Thrusters unbroken, and linked 3 sets of 2 muscle ups. It doesn’t sound like much, but I was super excited to get my thrusters unbroken and just to get a muscle up. Then when I linked a few muscle ups, I was in high Crossfit heaven. It was a good day for me.
4 rounds 26:22 (25 minute cut off, but I was running so I finished up the round)
assisted muscle ups
110 lb thrusters
Great energy Daniel!
25:58 scales 115#
25:54 – 5 rounds (over 25min cutoff, but was running and wanted to finish)
Round 1 – 155# thruster
Round 2 – 155# 3 reps, form wasn’t there so dropped to 135# remaining 2 reps, and stayed with 135# for Rounds 3-5.
MU’s on low rings.
Scaled doing 135 lb thrusters, sissy muscle ups, and 400 m.
Finished in 26:10 Ran out of wind today and felt like my lungs weren’t able to fill. Not sure why.
Scaled to 125# thrusters.
3 rounds completed in 25 minutes. To be honest, I took way too much time fooling around with MUs. I don’t know what the hell has happened to me to cause my body to suddenly reject the muscle up. I was able to get them the first time I ever tried, but today it just wasn’t happening.
-That sucked in a wonderful type of way
MU’s 5,5,3-2,3-2,3-1-1 (missed on one MU attempt in last round)
4 rds. in 25:41- 25 min cutoff
Thrusters as rx’ed-110#
Had problems at least one each round of locking out overhead. I think this was because I was keeping my arms in a rack position (elbows way up), instead of back down to a pp positions. I think that was keeping me from having the power to drive overhead. Gotta work on this.
Lesha, I know what you mean about a sternum bruise…..no collarbone issues today; just lucky to get it up to the sternum!!!
24:34 as Rx’d
Last 2 rounds of Muscle-ups took around 4 to 5 minutes each. This workout has all 3 of my biggest CrossFit weaknesses so I’m ok with that time.
24:47 @ 95# and assisted mu’s. The WORST part for me was cleaning the freakin bar. I hate cleans!!!!!I have to get more efficient at that movement. Happy to get 95# thrusters, my hip function is a lil better.
20:15, 115# & muscle up transitions…
22:43 scaled at 65# with MU transitions. (I think I wrote 60# on the board. Prolly cause that’s what I wanted to do, but Jake called me out so I added more!)
Bar MU 1st and 5th round
Many failures rounds 2,3,4
I’m giving up on those damn things, I’ll admit defeat and move along.
