    WU x2

    Daily Squat to 145#

    Strength: Push Press
    5x 50-55-60-70-80

    WOD: 100 Pulls for Distance

    986 meters
    -25 meter penalty
    = 961

    SO stupid. I started one of my pulls too far back and instead of continuing with it, I reset at the front and my pace dropped below 20.

    This was a fun wod, I liked it. Learned a little more about rowing this morning, which is always good!

    Great practice for rowing. Hand is still quite sore from my weekend kitchen mishap. Hope to try this one again sometime.

    WU x 2 Sub pullups for SDHP

    Strength: Front Squat 3’s

    100 pulls – 784

    SLOW and “Pow” Strong wins the race! Went too fast in the beginning, once I slowed down the meters increased. Tricky little WOD for me.

    Steph, I am not in the no-bread challenge anymore but I would still like to compare my Fran results to last time since I have changed my eating habits if it is OK with Kevin…

    WU x 2 (sub SDHPs for pullups)
    Strength: Shoulder press (x5)
    Daily squat: 145-165-190-210

    Row – 100 pulls for distance

    Eye opener, for sure. Not generating near enough power with my legs. Lots to work on πŸ˜‰

    Cashout – double unders x 2 minutes (PR = 20)

    Front Squat 1’s

    What fun!! (Makes up for Fran later in the week!)

  8. Hannah

    wu x 2, 1 set of sdhp (need to read the board) for pull ups

    OHS @ 5: 25, 30, 35, 40 (fail), 40 (no fail) – pr!

    Fran @ 55: 9:06, almost a minute shorter than last time, and I did strength beforehand today. Diet must make a difference!

  9. Darsey

    Wu x 2
    Back squat: (3s)

    75lbs, med purple band
    Time: 5:23
    Quite happy with this. It’s a PR by 1 min 50 seconds. First and only other Fran was done Oct 21 for no bread challenge with a 7:13 time.
    Also I am officially stopping the no bread after tomorrow, but I learned some great things that I am sure to continue, even without a no bread challenge. Thanks Kevin for putting this together because I have felt great the past seven weeks.

  10. Mario

    – Lacrosse ball (glutes); 2x30s each side, (back); 2x30s each side
    – Figure 4 wall stretch; 2x30s each side
    – Hip + Back extensions; 3×10, 2×10(10#)
    – Box Jumps; up to 42.5″ (Good job on those Evan!)
    – Practice Double Unders; consistantly getting 4+, 10 at most
    – Warm-Upx2 (SDHP instead of Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups)
    – Practice Double Unders (again, instead of strenght); consistently 3-4m… Consecutive singles, one set; 83

    WOD; 100 rowing strokes for distance, min pace 20 spm (25m penalty)
    = 1112m (was staying at 24-25 spm, especially near the end…)

    So yeah, did a bunch of stuff while waiting for 6h30… wasn’t felling quite comfortable with attempting a Push Jerk 1RM just yet, so tried DUs again.

  11. Nath

    WU X 2 (SDHP for Pull ups)

    Push Press x 1

    This ends my series of 1s (for some reason I had skipped push presses last week) with another PR (got a PR on every single one of them). I think the diet has a lot to do with that.
    πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Row – 100 pulls for distance
    I could not see the distance as I was rowing. When Kevin showed it to me I could not believe it! If my feet weren’t in the straps, I think I would have had an happy dance!!!
    πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Doing Fran on Friday. Lets see what happens!

    1. Gabrielle

      The diet is part of it, but you’re hard work and perseverance is the biggest part of it I think! Believe in yourself Nath!! You’re awesome πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

    Strength Front squats x 3

    WOD 100 rower pull for distance : 880 m

    Not sure how I feel about this one? I don’t understand how to try to get a longer distance, to me it felt too easy.
