    Still rock forward in the bottom of the squat just a little bit to get momentum to go up. Happy with PR.

  2. Justin says:

    Previous PR for a triple was 225.

    I give up on morning WODs! Warm up went fine. First lift at 225 and pulled my damn rhomboid…..again.

    rowed a 5000m 18:50 (6 secs from PR)….which was nice because I had NO intention of trying to pull a PR. Just messing around with row strategy. I discovered 5 hard fast pulls followed by 3 slower pulls is very effective for me. Actually enjoyed the row this time. Looking forward to next time.

      did you say you enjoyed the row? πŸ™‚

      “Enjoyed the row.” “Looking forward to next time.”

      Umm… KLowe, I’ll have some of what you’re having, cause that sounds like pure madness to me! ;-P

    125 – 135 – 145 – 155(PR) – 160(PR)

    It was time to wrap things up and I was the only one left on the rack… I think that’s why I lost focus on my last set. The 225 round went smoothly enough that I shouldn’t have been dropping 235. Next time.

  9. Robb Dempsey says:


    on my toes the first rep of the last two sets. 205 matches my PR so not too bad of a day.

  10. Robert S. says:


    Everything above 185 was a PR. 215 was my 1RM, so I am pleased with today’s WOD.

    If you haven’t looked at this, check it out.


    I want to do this WOD really bad.

  11. Russell says:

    did the 50-40-30-20-10 Wall-ball muscle up workout-


    felt horrible and legs cramped up at the end. I still haven’t recovered from that back-squat workout.

  12. Jake Naumcheff says:


    Hit 225 without much of a problem then realized I was on the ball of my foot. Tried 225 the second time making sure I was on my heels and it fell right over. I’v been having some issues with this and I didn’t want to keep making the same mistake again so I went down and did a good bit more sets at lighter weight.

    Paul as Rx’ed

    First workout that has felt good for me in a while. Double unders got better as the workout progressed. I think the last round of knees to elbows took me over 4 minutes. Overhead walk wasn’t bad today and on Saturday when I tried it I felt like it was going to crush me.

    • Jake Naumcheff says:

      Mistake it was

      And big thanks to Austin and Alyssa for sticking around and counting reps for me

  13. Russ says:

    135-135-155(old PR) -155-185(x1)

    185 (1rep max) also New PR

    Form progressively got worse with more weight (more focus on keeping chest and elbows up).
