    9:36 scaled to 20 kg KB – much harder than I anticipated

  2. Kerri says:

    As rx’ed-14:04 Didn’t really push straight through the Kb snatches until the 9’s. Coulda made some time up, had I done that for each set.

    Good WOD!

      I think I know why you didn’t just push through the KB snatches straight though… it’s because this workout was hard as crap.

    Scaled to 20 Kg


    Forearms were trashed. Nice to be back in the gym after a week in DC and a week in Disney.

    As Rx’ed

    Wore gloves for the first time since I can remember. I have bad memories of tearing every bit of palm-skin from my hand at regionals doing KB snatches and didn’t want to re-live that. Grip was the limiting factor here. Tore the gloves off at round 9 and went bare hands because I needed more grip strength but I’m glad I wore them for the first two rounds or my hands would be hamburger.

    11:15 at 20kg. Grip strength failure really slowed things down.

    Just want to say how proud I am of Kevin for his first place win in TN, Dennis for his fourth place win (I think?), and russell’s Again Faster win!!! If I left anyone out, I apologize 🙂

    I’m glad to be a part of such a great gym!

    11:01 – scaled to 20Kg

    All KB swings were unbroken, the slow part was trying to actually get that many pull-ups.

  12. Dennis says:

    Thank You Katherine. I would like to echo your remarks about being a part of a Great gym. I feel very lucky, glad, stoked and pleased that I found CFHSV and all the great athletes, friends, coaches, trainers, and firebreathers. Marvelous, simply marvelous. It is always a big worry when the Army moves you to a new place and the first thing you wonder is how and where you will be able to get your CF fix. I cannot think of a better place the Army could of sent me.

    Train Hard, Train Smart, Train to Survive and do it at CFHSV!

    This still should have been faster. One day I will walk away from a workout thinking that I couldn’t have gone any faster….maybe?

    • KLowe says:

      very rare event to have happen. If it happens to much….then it is time to find another gear.

  15. AmandaJ says:

    Pull-ups STARTING to come along!!! Scaled the PU reps to 12-9-6 since this was my first WOD doing them with no band assistance the entire way through. Took me a minute 40 to get the last pull up and it was not quite over the bar but I was spent…time was either 8:48 or 8:58…will have to look at the board.

  16. Karen says:

    8:51 as rx’d. Thanks, Aaron, Jake, and Matt for pushing me!

  17. Josh Kennedy says:

    Sorry y’all, gorgeous Fall Day (and federal holiday as well) deserved long trail as the WOD. So ~45km on the Fiery Gizzard Trail on the Cumberland Plateau. Finished it off with a swim at the bottom of Foster Falls’ wading pool.


  18. Aaron says:

    5:32 @ 1pood

    Shoulder felt good throughout wod but the verdict is still out until morning. All KBS and the first 21 PU’s unbroken.

  19. Emily D. says:

    ripped BAD with 4 pull-ups left…have no idea what time I was at. Since I was bleeding like a murder victim I stopped 🙂 First time I have ripped like that in months. Oh well…it will buff out.

    Thanks to Tracy Roberts for pushing me today!!!

    also big thanks to Jon for taping up my other hand……that mess didn’t move AT ALL!

  20. KLowe says:

    wished I could have. couldn’t. probably needed the forced day off anyway.
