For time:
100 Burpee pull-ups

Ideally, the pull-up bar is one foot above your reach.

Post time to comments.

Read the October 09 Issue of Cato Unbound on Inequality.

Consider and post comments on January 23, the next rest day.

    11:24. The “ideally” part didnt happen as the CFHSV bar is not out of reach.

  4. Craig Herr says:

    9:45 The โ€œideallyโ€ part only worked for a few of the shorter
    ones at the 7am class.

    An email from Russel reminded me that we haven’t shared our news with Crossfit Huntsville yet. Leah and I are expecting our first baby!

    Congrats you two!

    Kids are a ton of work but change ya for the better : )

    Bar was way more than 1 foot out of reach, so I used a box to reach the bar and give myself a little push. Did my best to keep most of the pull-up under my own power, so my convoluted WOD was 20:54.

    As Rx’d 16:59

    I decided to measure a foot out of my reach on the rope in the gym to do this one, that added a whole new level of suck to this workout that I obviously was not prepared for

    I’m not tall enough to jump and reach the bar, so I had to do the scaled workout, but honestly–after watching the folks who did it, I really don’t think I’d have been able to do 100!! You girls rocked! 10 rounds of 10 burpees/10 ring rows = 100


  17. Russ says:

    20:09 Scaled (working to improve my pullups form/count)
    10 rounds of 10 burpees/10 ring rows = 100

    Too much time off has probably degraded my strength and speed a bit. However, without the zone diet, my time would have been a lot worse.

    Congrats to Hudson and Leah!

    19:11 as rx’ed with kpus. I slowly started feeling the skin on my hands, tug, pinch, tear, and finally rip. So, after #57, I was slightly distracted by the 4 new places on my hands. This means the burpee pull-ups def weren’t jumping pull-ups (but they never were), and I was doing the best to get my chin up to the bar, but each and every one certainly wasn’t.

    Great work Katy and Julie!

    I think, if Katy and I could’ve done what we talked about (I gave her my lungs for better, asthma free breathing; she gave me her gloves to helps with my ripped hands), we would’ve TOTALLY had a PR WOD!!!

    I thought I was going to die… these type WOD’s really make my asthma flare up, then I get panicky when I feel like I can’t breathe, which makes it worse. Kerri, I completely agree we’d have totally rocked it! ๐Ÿ™‚
