150 Wallball shots, 20 pound ball
Post time to comments.
The Cloward-Piven strategy
Front Squats 5×3 – 135-185-205-215-215
45 mins later
“Karen” 8:29. Much tougher for me this time with the dynamax ball vs the dball I used last time.
WTF Robert!? Front Squats and then Karen…..
Karen as Rx’d 17:04 Kept missing….a lot.
13:50 as Rx’d…im sure i did atleast 15-20 extra because Russell was strict with form and ball hitting lines perfectly:(
More difficult with the dynamax ball IMO.
Missed probably 10 or 12.
Props to Russell for being so strict. It quickly turned in to a mental as well as physical battle. Hearing “MISS!” or “Didn’t Count!” definitely screws up a mental rhythm. As much as I hated hearing it…..it is great for games preparation.
5:51. new PR!!!
and it was ass to ankles in case you’re wondering, russell
did it with a D-ball that used to be a basket ball.
My last Karen tim was in the 8 min range. This time, I probably didn’t count half my reps
due to depth, and missing the target. There were several times I missed 5 in a row.
15:00 min. I probably did more like 250 because i missed so many times russel was very strict i could not hit the lines to save my life. thought i would do better but this one was alot harded then expected. tomorrow it will be 3 month that i have joined crossfit thanks to everyone there and thanks to russel for doing a kick ss job keeping me going.
That a baby Joe C!!! That workout is a mental and physical grind.
Back Squat 3-3-3
Dynamax balls suck when covered with sweat.
As Rx’ed – 8:07
didn’t feel great for this one. When I got done my quads cramped so badly I fell over. Still walking around like a robot. I blame this on dehydration, poor meal timing, and a few days of sleeping like crap.
I also want to point out to anyone who reads this blog and does not come to our gym that our Wall-ball shots today were graded very strictly on a 10′ target with a 6″ pass-or-fail both above and below the target line. This added an average of 2 minutes to almost everyone’s previous PR on this WOD. Not how I want to do this workout every time, but the accuracy work definitely did some interesting things to the scoreboard.
13:25 – 14lb ball
My last time was 11:46, so russell you are dead on with the 2 minute thing. I missed about 15 reps at least. Agree with you zak! Toward the end it was hard to hang on to the dang thing!
yeah I was almost exactly 2 mins slower and sweating so much the ball was super slippery which made it more challenging mentally.
Did the WOD with crossfit montgomery.
AMRAP 20 min
5 x thrusters
7x hang power cleans
Rx = 95#. Shoulder indicated 75# was good. 7 rounds + thrusters. Should *not* have eaten mexican for lunch. I think my blood was thick like the cheese dip.
Good job Katie! You got me, at the end of the day….
13:34 as rx’ed with 14# ball.
And yes, sweatfest is not our friend for this WOD….
Max rep pull ups
well, i guess my time didn’t count. CRAP!
19:03 as rx’d
10:06 slower by about 1:30.
8:53. Accuracy was decent. Russ got me for some for not going deep enough.
Beat my old time by 2:32 (from my first week of crossfit).
This was terrible. Seriously. There is nothing worse than doing physical work and it not counting. I learned that I have absolutely terrible accuracy. Not only was it difficult for me to get between the black tape, but I have an astounding ability to completely miss hitting the WALL. Yeah. That is pretty sad.
nevermind i posted that workout yesterday!
