    30 minute time limit:

    3 rounds + 20 pull-ups

  2. Larry Lowe says:

    As Rx’ed

    38:30 – 12:00 = 26:30

    I almost puked in round two. That is the most nausious I have ever felt during a workout.

    swallow, swallow, breath, breath and back at it.

  3. Russell says:

    27:34 – 12:00

    15:34 (PR) – chest to bar

    – Quality video on the mainsite from one of our Euro affiliates

  5. Slade White says:

    As Rx’d, started in the second heat one minute later.

    45:56 – 12 – 1 = 32:56 My upper body strength is crap. Pushups and pullups are really slowing me down.

  6. Ryan P says:

    32:23 – 12:00

    20:23 as rx’d

    damn Russell, that’s impressive, it appears you’re feeling better!

    Only 4 rounds due to time constraint…….(damnit!)
    (assume last round 3.55…would have been 17.13)
    All PU CTB and unbroken
    -best I have ever felt doing Barbara. No nausea. Still suck at SU’s but they were all unbroken

  8. JT says:

    note to self – Next time Barbara is on the WOD, schedule a staff meeting to last all day or just smash my head against the wall. This sucked, as a matter of fact, an hour and a half later – it still sucks! 39:03 and major nausea afterwards. Thanks to Clint for pushing me through 5th set.

  9. Tricer says:

    44:30. A good six minutes slower than last time. Dehydration don’t play. Severe headache lasted better part of an hour.

  10. Robert Montgomery says:

    25:19 All chest to bar and unanchored situps .


  11. Karen says:

    As rx’d, 37:50-12= 25:50 (PR by 5:48)! 1st 2 rounds of pullups unbroken. Pushups took majority of time. But I kept my head up for all pushups so Russell couldn’t fuss at me for that! Decided to take it out on my squat form instead!

  12. Justin says:

    Rounds were

    I have felt pretty bad for most of the day thanks to this one.

    As rx’d


    Sorry I forgot to get you that movie Russell….I wasn’t thinking clearly after this one.

  14. Katie says:

    Last 2 rounds assisted pull-ups.

    Craig – shoot me your email when you get a chance. I’ve got Josh’s resume for ya.

  15. Katie says:

    PS – awesome job Jordan, you’re kicking ass.

  16. Patrick says:

    29:00 (+2:30 over PR) Chest nowhere near the bar…or floor.
    Flailing arms sit ups and shallow squats.

    Poor diet + poor hydration + poor sleep + poor tolerance for discomfort = 29:00
    …think I’ll just eat worms.

  17. Hudson Slater says:

    23:09. PR by over 2min. Felt horrible. Probably the worst crossfit workout ive ever done.

  18. Clint says:

    20:30 (32:30-12:00) PR by a fair amount, luckily there were movements I enjoyed. I am so glad there wasn’t box jumps and 1000m row torture involved today.

  19. Brad says:

    32:59- 12:00 Total time= 20:59 as rx

  20. J.D. says:

    30:36. PR by 9:21. Felt a strange surge of energy in last round. By “surge”, I mean the desire to simultaneously hurl and cough up a lung abated. I have no explanation.
    Also, accidentally did 50 situps 3rd round. I really DO know how to count. Guess oxygen deprivation does that…

  21. Garth says:

    1:50 better than my PR
    3:03, 4:10, 4:04, 6:27, 4:12
    CTB first 3 rounds (minus a few), last two deteriorated
    Thighs hurt the most afterward.

  22. BryneCZ says:

    1st time for Flexibility Challenged Newbie
    Just short of Two Sets before the 30 minute time
    I got a LONG way to go….

  23. Craig Herr says:

    Katie send me his resume to:


  24. James Lambert says:

    3 rounds and 20 pullups at the 40 minute cutoff.

    I’ve got some catching up to do. I’ve been missing way to many workouts and snacking way too much.

  25. James Lambert says:

    I am signing Craig up for all kinds of spam now, oh yeah.
