@ Big Brian (aka Animal)….forgot to post yesterday, but congrats on your one year anniversary and all your accomplishments
Actually I need to edit my time…. I started 2 minutes late on the clock, so my time would have been 12:58. Now I am very pleased. PR for me.
6:37 rx’d. felt pretty jacked up after this one… get it?

14:00 ‘ish with mostly ring rows
Brian- Congrats on the 1 year. You’re a machine. Though you have few, you attack your “weaknesses” (i don’t think there are too many 6’8′ guys on this planet that are doing HSPUs and 100 pullups). Speaking of machines, Levi took took me to school this morning. Really enjoyed doing the wod competition style. 640 rx’d.
Sorry i missed jackie. Sounds like “fun”
Another hotel wod.
100 push ups
100 sit ups
I didn’t time it as I was on a conference call and had to stop a few times.
@ Brian – congratulations. You are a good role model for a new guy like me… Even though I’m a lot shorter
Wasn’t paying attention to the start time but think I finished at 7:43. Pull ups seemed faster this time around than last.
The push up crew should donate a portion of the winnings to a new gym clock. I am not around on the 25th to join, but willing to donate.
@E….if you can’t get that one fixed….this one is $139 and it does Tabata and Fight gone bad along with regular timer and clock! It’s called clock gone bad.
Nice work on the hotel WOD @Frank.
Morning run and yoga for the day to stretch out! Tapering for triathlon Sunday.
11:37 rx, not my best effort
Injuries suck…see u guys tomorrow.
First time w this one, 10:10. I think the row was 3:40 which may be a pr and for sure the first time rowing in months. Psyched to try this again.
Somewhere around 10:30. Put the bar down way too many time on my thrusters.
11:47 RX’d (for girls…brooke, you overachiever you!)
last time we did this in may i dont know the time, but i did 22lb bar and red band pull-ups. still hate the row but it didn’t seem quite as painful!
9:04, up from 10:45 in Feb.
Day 82 Burpee Challenge:
82 Hotel Burpees Done:
suck a fat one burpees, suck a fat one!
A nice rest day.
100 pushup app. Week 4 work out 2: 29-33-29-29-40 with 120 second rest between sets. Look out DLede & Dale I am coming for you August 25th
either 8:54 or 7:54.. honestly have no idea.. we need new clock because I black out after wods like this haha
3:30 row PR by 12 seconds!!!!! the row just clicked today so regardless of my jackie time I am stoked..
still feeling this one now
10:34 rx’d – as a girl, LOL
hard to compare from my last attempt from Nov ’10
- 45lb thrusters
- Green band assisted pull ups
DLede helped me keep pace w/the row. Should have done dueling thrusters! The row felt good, but I have no clue what I got.
Thrusters @ 33?
25 unbroken, 5, then 20 – thanks for the support guys…
and then I felt light headed..whew
Nice job rx’d Jen!
Dueling thrusters with Oceanspray? Yuck
45 lb thrusters
a mush mosh of bands for the pullups (last time did ring rows)
We are up to 17% of our 15K goal for Fight Gone Bad. Register and keep fundraising! Check out the kettlebell at the gym…it’s filling up!!
12:45 as Rx’d – for girls or otherwise I am VERY happy!!!
12:46 May 19th – 1 sec PR!…haha (the 1 second was on the rower of all things!)….BUT, red band pullups last time…huge improvement, I would say
2 really good days for me at the gym….I’m sure something humbling is coming my way, but tonight I am going to enjoy it
oh, and 82 stupid, stupid burpees throughout the day…
Not exactly proud of a 3:10 row.
Gotta get stronger on those thrusters.
Burpees sub for pullups.. IDK how you do it, Jen and Joe.
9:56 RX’d pr by a lot
10:33 – finished the row in 3:55
I completed the WOD @ NYSC, staying motivated through the row & thrusters was difficult.
Row 4:16, thrusters at 27lbs (up 5 from last time), green band pullups (from half band, half ring rows)
Slower by 45 seconds but forward progress on the strength side. I’ll take it.
Faster last time – I suck
Form getting better on the thrusters – still can’t handle much weight other than the bar itself.
Ring pullups again – next time I’m going to try the bands, see what happens.
No clue as to row time, but thought my pace was steady, at least.
18 or 19 minutes
Double green band pullups
Row felt good, but felt like things slowed down from there. Should have listened to E, put the bar down way too much on thrusters.
up 2 lbs on thrusters from last time and last time was ring rows.
11:15 vs 10:30 in May
poor clock management after a 3:39 row. put the bar down 4 x
