      Big A** Protein Bar…

      Alas, it mirrors the nutritional quality of nearly every protein bar on the market.

      Robert needs to do a WOD in mirrored sunglasses…

      • Josh McGuire says:

        You’re right Josh….peanut butter, chocolate, sugar, corn syrup are ingredients common to all the mainstream bars on the market. I’ve found one that’s ok….Raw Revolution – organic, raw live bar and its about 4$ / bar. When is eating healthy going to be cheaper than buying crap??! Never

    Solid work from everyone this morning. Grind it out and just keep moving. Awesome finish from JD and Josh!

  4. Matthew says:

    45:44 – this one sucked

    3 rds for time of:
    1000m row
    50 burpees
    50 box jumps
    800m row
    Felt decent this morning however, towards the end, this is one of four workouts I’ve done at crossfit that made me want to throw up. First two rounds of burpees unbroken, all box jumps unbroken, had two misses. After the pull-up, burpee ladder two weeks ago these burpees didn’t feel that bad…very surprising. The rows took a loooooong time, rowing 1800m in the middle two rds was not fun. For all those in later classes…PACE YOURSELF, this is a long wod, pick a pace and stick to it. Great morning class this AM! Good job to everyone that pushed themselves through this one.

    47- flat Rx’ed, Ranger JD caught me right at the end. Great effort by all this morning, loved the crowd today!

  6. Jamie Flynt says:

    Dear 16:30 class, I’m so sorry for you guys.

    Oh…my…goodness…I cut it in half and finished at 45:33. Great job this morning 6am folks! Way to push through and earn your time. Agree with Matthew, pacing yourself is the key.

    • Kerri says:

      Thank GOODNESS it’s a rest day for me today or else you’d be in trouble!! Whew!
      Best of luck and great job to all who pay tribute to Small today!

  7. DaveC says:

    After 7 workouts in the last 6 days, this is my scheduled rest day. Really. I’m not a shirker!

    Seriously, tip of my cap to everyone who attempts this WOD. As hot as it’s been, it would wipe me off the map.

  8. Michael K says:

    Thanks to three on, one off, I will also be missing this one. Good luck to all who participate.

  9. Tracey says:

    1hr/31 seconds…. R.I.P. Small.

    • Kerri says:

      Great work Tracey!!
      Knowing this was your time, you’d have to be there from 4:30 til dark for me to get past 150 box jumps without injurty!!
      Sounds like this one was Hella Suck!! Good Job!

  10. Lesha says:

    30:37 scaled by 50% (and a shorter box jump, obviously)

  11. Brian says:

    This was not a very fun lunchtime WOD…

    2 rounds + 25 burpees : I stopped at 19:15ish

    I am certain that I have never completed 125 burpees during a single WOD before.

    not looking forward to this

    • Emily D. says:

      I have been choking down massive amounts of water ALL day. The heat is going to make this one 10 times worse than it already is. I am ready!

  14. Carson says:

    “You’re killing me, Smalls.”
    Sorry, had to say it.
    41:33, Scaled everying in half.
    Halfway through the second round of box jumps, had a miss and smacked the box so I finished on an 18″ box doing step-ups. My first box jump badge of honor. Thankfully, no major amount of bleeding and no stiches required, but the bruising is spectacular. 🙂

    Good luck afternoon classes!

    Learn more about this soldier and the great oragnization his fiance set up.

    55:51 rx’d
    Thank you for your service Sergeant Small…

  17. Ben says:

    58:36 – all three rounds except the last run. I substituted situps for the burpees since I’m trying to give my shoulder a rest so it can heal. Pretty brutal!

  18. dean says:

    51:13 Rx’d. Tomorrow is a scheduled rest day, but I really dont wanna do this then Fran. I’ll probably do it anyway. Ugh…
