    I was able to get 36 linked pull-ups which is a PR, but running really slowed me down today.

    My pullups have gotten worse.

    Thrusters are the devil!!!!! I liked the posted warmup idea. I got 21 chest to bar pull ups today (PR) on the first set of 50. I’m beginning to think the more you push away on the bar at the top of the movement to help your kip, the more sliding the hand makes and the more skin you take. It makes the pullup easier, but it punishes your hand. When I watch Russell exercising, his grip does not slide as much and his movement is more up and down than circular (as far as the center of his chest). He was setting a new land speed record as I was leaving.

    31:36 with JPU’s and 55lb thrusters
    The gym at PMRF works much better than the hotel gym.

    19:57. Not too happy with this time. Felt a little off today.

  11. Larry Lowe says:

    I definitely like the structured warm up that Josh had for us at 6am. Good addition.

    26:04 – Walked my 1/2 and almost all of my last 1/4 mile….thrusters and pull ups went pretty well though.

  13. Patrick says:

    Sub’d Row for Run
    Thrusters 95# but racked

    Amazing display of suffering and pain from both Kevin and Russell…Strong work on the Pukie.

  14. Russell says:


    worst I’ve ever felt. Dry heaved and couldn’t stand up for 30 minutes after this workout. I blame drip coffee in part. I’ve got to go back to espresso.

  15. Will Blankenship says:

    Yeah… I stayed and watched Russell and Kevin do Daniel. Amazing work fellas.

  16. Will Blankenship says:

    wait a minute… that don’t sound quite right. Shit. Why don’t we have a fcuikng edit button for our posts. 😉

  17. Kyle Mosier says:


    Yep. That one sucked.

  18. Daniel says:

    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=112886911 recent article on ‘tipping points’. A reference to my rant from yesterday.

    Yeah that didn’t sound good Will.

  19. Slade White says:

    LMAO, Will. Poor Daniel……

  20. Katherine Berger says:

    400m run
    21 pullups
    400m run
    15 pullups
    400m run
    9 pullups
    about 12 min with runs at 1:30 pace

  21. Katherine Berger says:

    Meant to type 10 min.

    First day back after a week of work travel and serious socializing.
    Scaled with jumping pull-ups. 21:52
    Mandee – you rock!

  23. Robert S. says:

    God Speed SFC Daniel Crabtree and SFC Jared Monti. Blessed is the heavenly Battalion to have men such as you among it’s ranks.

    As rx’ed 27:20

    The last time we did a WOD with thrusters I scaled them to 75 lbs, so rx weight on this one was tough. That really slowed me down. Pullups are getting much better.

  24. Kerri says:

    Scaled w/ jumping pu’s on a 12″box-21:39-5th day of WODs….Rest, will rest on Sat/Sun
    Mand-Y kicked boo-tay this afternoon as rx’ed!! Great job!!!!!

    Russell, drip coffee vs. espresso…..what’s the catch?

  25. zora says:

    16.52. Scaled 45 Lbs thrusters.Rpu.

  26. Zak says:

    15:30 as RX’ed

    Idid chest to bar pull-ups on the first set and smashed my chin on the bar on number 33. I bit the hell out of my tongue and dropped off of the bar. I think I could have knocked out 10 more if that wouldn’t have happened.

  27. Russell says:

    I really dislike drip coffee, but its cheaper.

    Espresso- tastes good, small volume, lots of caffeine

    Drip coffee- tastes like dark tea, huge volume to get an equal amount of caffeine

  28. Robb Dempsey says:

    35:30 as RX’ed… My brain said run but my legs heard shuffle.

  29. Matthew says:

    25:26 as Rx’d

  30. Tricer says:

    24:33 scaled to 75#. Shoulder still an issue and flexibility is definitely a problem.

    On the plus side. Shoulder stronger every day, and flexibility is improving.

    Workout was awesome for generating the shakes….which reminds me….I’m down almost 10 lbs from when we started the zone diet with more than 2 weeks to go. Now holding out hope that I’ll rid myself of the fat jacket completely. Thanks Russell for having the challenge.

  31. Larry Lowe says:

    great pic Tony Z!

  32. Katie says:

    27:55 as rx’d – kick ass job Jordan and Mandy!

    Pissed at myself after this WOD not because my hands hurt but because I just had a mental issue getting back on the bar for the last 20 or so pull-ups. Work has been extremely stressful this whole month and there is definitley something to be said for stress affecting workouts. I hate that I am not performing my best but mentally I feel drained. Hopefully when Q3 is over I can re-balance life a little bit more.

  33. Garth says:

    Put a couple more small holes in my recently healed hands. I have to figure something out.

    Good to be back after a week of traveling and only a couple WODs while away.

  34. Mandy says:

    24:39 as rx’ed sets of 3-4 pull ups at the end and mega holes in hands

  35. Will Blankenship says:

    Garth… look at my hands on the pic posted for Friday. Mechanics gloves FTW. Your grip is a lot better without them and you can do more pullups without them, but if you don’t want slivers of meat hangin from your hands, it’s an option. Everybody busts my balls for it, but there ain’t no shame in my game 😀
