    Sundays WOD with a few substitutions: one arm push-press sub with regular push- press and one arm deadlift sub with regular deadlift.

    Two rounds of:
    Push-press 12 reps – 115 lbs
    Deadlift 12 reps – 275 lbs
    Run 800 meters


  3. James Lambert says:



    6 rounds 52 P/Us

    Row subbed for Run and blood on the carpet.

    I would suggest people don’t Kip around the boxes.

    Spent the weekend in California. It is a long way to for just a three day weekend.

    Was on the flight from Atlanta to HSV with Robert M. He was in good spirits but looked like he had run through a brier patch. Congrats on the finish. 21 hours must have been brutal.

    After getting home after midnight, I am off to Boston through Sunday. I am enjoying the travel mostly, but my workouts are suffering. Hope to see all of you next week. I hope to give a report from CF Boston.

    Two rounds of:
    Push-press 12 reps
    Deadlift 12 reps
    Run 800 meters

    I used both arms for push press and dead lift: 2 rounds push-press @ 75 lbs, 2 rounds @ 65 lbs; 2 rounds dead lift @ 105, 2 rounds @ 95.

    I HATED this one! I figured out that my lower back is weak.

    Death Race Withdrawels: walking around all day wondering why i’m not carrying a bike, axe, saw, tree stump, camelback, food, water, 20% of my bodyweight in rocks, etc while hiking though rivers, up mountains, under barbed wire etc…

    Death race was awesome. Very challenging. I would definately recommend it to anyone who wants a good challenge!

    Kevin: thanks for letting me borrow the axe. It chops wood great, but is a pain in the ass to carry for 21hrs. I was tempted several times to throw it off a mountain 🙂

    Way to go Robert! That sounds amazing (and terrible)…I am very impressed!

    Soo…this was day one of my CF Cert:

    9 basic crossfit moves (squats, overhead, push press, dead lift, etc) all done a zillion and fifty times with only a PVC. Let me tell ya…PVC done enough times with enough intensity actually becomes pretty damn hard.

    Then, tabata squats 20 sec, rest 10 sec for 4 minutes (8 rounds)…oh, and the rest is IN THE SQUAT…ugh….only rule, no shaking out the legs or resting hands on the ground.

    18-18-17-16-14-12-11-11-10 Score ended up being the lowest number. I actually did well on this one.

    Then, FRAN. ugh. should not have done Nicole the night before (and did I mention we had just squatted 9000 times…ugh!). Totally sucked at my pullups and ended up doing one at a time…even my kip left me…9:24. Totally sad.

    Cert was awesome overall. Learned alot. Ready to get back in the gym and use it!

  13. Karen says:

    “Nicole” – 5.5 rounds (did Russell really think I could finish 400m with 2 minutes left on the clock?? Come on!) 63 pullups (18,12,12,10,11). PR by 7!

    Way to go Robert! Congratuations Katherine!

    Just an idea for the pullup cage – if a box is needed/wanted for assistance, especially INSIDE the cage, use the 12″ tall foam “cushion” instead of a wooden box. Same effect, less blood. I learned it the hard way… Sorry Larry’s toes!

  14. Katie says:

    Nicole – 6 Rounds, 41 Pullups
    (12, 8, 6, 4, 5, 6)

    PR by 10 Pull-ups, and 1 round less

  15. Hudson Slater says:

    Nicole – 115, 7 rounds. Last time i got 124 but that was with pullups first. Feel like I did better on the pullups this time.

  16. kewe99303 says:

    Nicole -first timer-5 rounds, 125 jumping pull-ups…..I hate running, I hate running, I hate running; hey hey hey hey…..No looking forward to Wed. workout then…..

  17. Lindsey says:

  18. Kiki says:

  20. Mandee Miller says:

    5 rounds plus one run, 56 pull ups

  21. Daniel says:

    Started Nicole, then came down on the end crossbar supporting the pull-up cage. Twisted my ankle bad and had to stop. Hobbled out to the car wrapped in ice, and then writhed in pain most of the night.
