Warmup (worked on strict pull ups, dips, and the kip for t2b)
Back squat (5). 45-65-95 stopped due to pain in knee
Wow…just…wow! Awesome job Gillyon! To get that many, and to get them at 6 AM!
That was my comment Gillyon! lol!
Great score Gillyon! How is the kip on the T2B coming along? Those are on my (long) list of things to work on.
Great Job Gillyon!! thats quite a number
Thanks guys! I should have went in with a plan though. Next time I will have a goal to get so many per minute. Lora…as for my kip…I still have a ways to go.

Nice PR!!! You were really working hard!
Say wha??? Awesome!

Bike from home to CFM
WU x 1
Work on my DU’s
Happy with my result, impressive numbers today, great job guys!!
Great Job!! So happy you came at lunch
You did great! Happy to see you at lunch
YAY! Way to go Miss Elba! You did great!
Your double under’s were solid today Elba!
WU x 2
front squat 5rm: 125#
WOD: amrap burpees in 10 min: 142 (got 100 in 6:56… PR of 11 sec from couple weeks ago on vacation)
good job everyone with all the DUs PRs
My goodness that’s a lot of burpees! Nice work!
142 in 10? Unreal!!! Way to go!
WOW Natacha! That’s A LOT of burpees! Way to go!
Awesome work Natacha!
Strength front squat x 3
Very frustrated today, but the fact I showed up to do it makes me happy lol, more practice needed!
Which is why you’re such a dedicated and awesome Crossfitter. Once you nail these down, with the cardio you got, you’re going to really takeoff with them! No doubt in my mind…
Very happy you did the wod today. The DU’s will click soon enough, promise. Especially cause you show up & work hard at wod’s like this like. It’ll pay off.
Its very easy to get frustrated with double unders. We’ve all been there. Your hard work will pay off, Maria! Keep working on them.
You hid your frustration very well Maria. They will get better, I promise! Great effort today!
WU X 2 (6 skinny band pullups )
WOD “No singles”
AMRAP 10 min DU’s:
@ 4 min – 131
@ 6 min – 200
@ 7 min – lost screw in skipping rope took 3 attempts to d a replacement
@ 10 min 271
I CANNOT BELIEVE I WRECKED ANOTHER SKIPPING ROPE and right in the middle of the best DU wod I’ve ever had!!! However – 131 was my total for 10 mins in Sept and I remember that I was thrilled then so I’ll take my 140 rep PR and try not to think about those lost minutes
Cashout – looking for screw and 3 x T2B
Nice job coach Jeff and I can hardly wait for you to post your DU total tonight
Way to go Heather. 140 PR…that’s no joke lady!
my first time on this WOD, and i’ll walk away smiling with a 131 !! lol.. you did great tonight even with rope issues..
You know I was cheering for you to get 272 but 131 seems to by the magic 1st time number
YAY for progress, Heather! That’s a great PR. Congrats!
Nice wok Heather!
Strength push jerks x 5
My jerks need more confidance. Thankfully Jeff was around to confirm that I was doing all right and made a slight correction.
Goal was 200 so a good work out DU still need some work but they are coming along.
I’d say that’s some pretty good practice right there! Good job Val!
Congrats on surpassing your goal of 200, Val. Your doubles are looking really good.
Nice job Val!
Strength Front Squats
105-115-125-135-145 (PR 10#)
I don’t know about others but I am soooo on an off with DU’s. One day I actually threw my rope down in frustration and today I was knocking off 10-14 in a row consistently…well until the last 3 mins or so and then my extreme need to improve my cardio kicked in.
Maybe I should just practice more….
Nice job Kimmy – I’m all over the palce too but managed to consistently 10 or so as well – must be something in the air!!
That’s a nice Front Squat PR, Kimmy. Your strength is impressive!
Great work on the WOD too.
Strong girl Kimmy! Good effort today!
OHS x 5 to 125. Pr
I had no idea on what to expect so I am happy with that score.
Dude, that’s pretty awesome! I can’t wait to bang out doubles with the big boys & girls!
WOW!!!! That is an amazing score man!!!!
nice job Darsey.. great number, think I owe you a little over $3.50? now for MU? lol
Great job Darsey!
WU X 2
Strength – Back Squat X 5
WOD – No singles
Total – 21
Finally got the single-single-double-single-single down but that second double just doesn’t happen.
Thanks Amanda for the encouragement during the WOD
Great job tonight buddy.
Stick with it Jeff…they will come.
Yup, what Heidi said. And you made a lot of progress with them tonight, great job!
nice job sticking these out buddy.. they’ll come just keep at em!
Good on you for sticking it out with the double unders tonight. Don’t let them get into your head. Just keep practicing. You will get them.
Good effort Jeff! They will come with practice!
WU x 2 (no Pull Ups due to torn hands)
Strength = OHS x 3
Skipped the fifth set at 155#. I prefer to snatch the weight from the floor and felt some tightness in my shoulder. I think for this particular exercise I will back up one more step and re build it a little slower. This was my first time doing OHS since April
WOD: 10 Mins of DU
A little disappointed with this as I set a goal of 250, but, I broke my rope during the first couple of minutes and had to get used to my back up rope. Could not string them together until around the 7 minute mark when I fixed my hand position.
Great OHS score!
Great work on those OHS Sheldon! You did well on the DUs too, in spite of your equipment failure. You might want to check the surveillance video leading up to the WOD. Someone (cough…Jeff S) may have tampered with it…LOL
damn it you are so original Sheldon.. I never thought to throw out an equipment issue! lol.. good job on the wod anyhow!
Nice OHS Sheldon! Good effort with the doubles too!
wod:794 dus and a wicked headache
Holy S…!!! thats crazy!! Seriously??? Great Job Shawn
WTF???? 794???? How is that even possible??? LOL mind=blown.
Great job dude!!!!!
Always insane watching ya man.. Great job.
Double under god!
Only a wicked headache??? That’s a “sign the wall” kind of number. Crazy!
WTH?? That’s like…79 DUs a minute… 1.3 DU’s a sec!!
I…need to lie down…
Holy @$#%@$#%@$^%#$^$# thats a big number!!
You are crazy….unreal!
One word: Insane!!!
Pretty unbelievable score!
Maybe next time you could push a little harder? I mean you WERE 6 short of 800. I really sucks right? HAHA
It is the Kcryptonite he puts in his eggs very morning!!! I have to start use it.
Shoulder press 95 – 125 x 5
Wod 418 (only 376 more to tie Shawn)
Oh, I had to tie my shoes up 3x during the wod — so that was probably the difference.
For sure! Especially if you had to double knot them.
No doubt indeed! lol!
That’s a great score, Rob. Didn’t you just learn double unders!? Nicely done!
195-205( head started to hurt gunna try again for these tommarow)
10 mins AMRAP Double Unders
Right at the start got a PR of 6 so im up to 63 in a row now yay! great job on this wod guys crazy high numbers today and way to go everyone whos still working on them they take a long time to come you’ll all see big improvements before too long im sure.
You have awesome flair with your doubles! Fun to watch, good rhythm.
Flair with doubles??? Did you see that handspring???
Great work as usual Lance!
skipped strength and worked on my pull up kipping.. Thanks very much Amanda Lora and Corinna for all the tips about kipping. i’ll get it soon.
WOD was super frustrating. MY pr in a row a month ago was 20. and i couldn’t get anymore than 4 in a row tonight. but i eventually got 104. then practiced the walking handstand. got a few “steps?” … good job everyone. and great job Lance for basically showing everyone that you really are a ninja. Your a crossfit tank my friend.
Try not to let the double unders frustrate/discourage you too much. Some days the “rhythm” just isn’t clicking. You’ll get them again Keep practicing.
Stick with it Kevin!
Strength: Front Squats
65×5; 75×5; 85×5; 90×5; 95×5
WOD: AMRAP in 10 minutes of DU’s
I almost cancelled my class for the obvious reason – see above score….however, I thought about it and I decided that I wasn’t going to get any better by not practicing!!! Watch out Corinna….I’m coming for u with my DU’s!!!!!! LOL
We can suffer in the same hell as our respective mates kill DU!! lol.. good job sticking with these, know your pain!
Good decision Christine. Practice, practice, practice
Your husband has a pretty awesome score too Christine! They will get better; you’ll see. Practice! Practice! smiles…
Good job Christine!!
Keep practicing, my friend. They get better. I promise
That right there, is the exact reason why this WOD even exists. Do 10 minutes of ANYTHING and you’ll get better at it. That’s a fact. Good for you for showing up.
WU x 2 (sub ring dips for push ups)
Strength : shoulder press (x1)
**did not match my PR of 105… not feeling very strong tonight
AMPRAP 10 min
Total = 588
First 102 were UNBROKEN! Woohoo!
Great work 6:30 crew! Big class tonight! Love it!
102 unbroken….nice. Is that a PR?
awesome job on this lora, i’m surprised that you did so well on it as your doubles are only so so at best!! lol.. you looked so smooth and effortless going through them!
Killer score Lora!
Oops. That last comment was me although Laura thinks that is a kick ass score!
Great job Lora. You made it to the “Trophy Case!”
Way to go on both the 102 and the 588!
Very nice Lora
I was happy to have witnessed the 102 pr elation! great job!
That was me…
^ my post, I mean. I’m not doing very well with posting today
Push Jerks x 3
DU’s: 10 Min AMRAP = 265
PR of 55 reps.
No where near the #’s or huge PR’s that some had today (I’m still in awe), but I’ll take.
Man….DU’s gas me soooo bad. If I took shorter breaks, it would help.
nice job Heidi.. I have no issue with getting gassed with DU, if you do them one at a time it takes very little oxygen! lol..
LOL! I’m pretty sure you broke a sweat tonight
Well done Heidi! Congrats on your PR.
WU x 1
Strength: Worked on HSPU’S with just the ab mat and kipping. Shoulders and hands are a wreck from Eva and DT.
WOD: AMRAP Double Under’s 10 minutes
Last time: 576
Nice job on the Wod Corinna..
That was fun to watch Good job Corinna!
I have DU envy!
Hehe my goal for you was to get over 600. Nice job!
I knew you were going to kick ass!! Nice job!!
Awesome job Corinna
strength Front squats x3
went light on these as back was a little tight from OLY class the other night..
131 happy with this, wasn’t sure what to expect. most of these were in 1s and 2s with a couple of 3s thrown in! much room for improvement! practice needed!
Good job Jeff. (high five)
Still say that it’s all in the rope – but given my recent rope difficulties not sure what to do about that lol!
I’m so proud of you! I know how much you *love* double unders! This is the best way to get better…keep up the great work!
Nice work Jeff!
Stick with it man. When the DU’s come you will kill it.
Skipped strength to practice Handstand Walking. Far from mastered, but made some big improvements. High five to me
434. Not a PR. My rope broke in the first minute. Spent the next minute finding another good size rope, that ended up being too long. Switched again while Amanda was fixing my rope. In the middle of that chaotic frustration I ended with a decent score, but I’m pretty confident I can get about 600.
Post WOD: More handstand walking practice with the gang. Lots of fun!!
Without the rope difficulties, you have 600 in the bag! Without a doubt! High five!
“high five” belongs to Amanda and myself.. get your own!!
600 easily Patrick!
I love reading CFM comments. What a supportive group. Makes my heart happy!
You’re so right ! I read them just for fun sometimes haha !!
Me too, Gillyon! It’s the last thing I do before bed! (I also check it many times during the though, lol)
200.. no @%@$#%$#%^ way!!
nothing to say here. Just wanted to be the 200th post on today’s topic HAHA
eff you Pat, 200 was mine!! lol
