  1. QOD – AMRAP X mins Burpees

    The more I think about it, more it would make sense. Coud be 7 mins, could be 10, could be 5… just to get burping (burpee-ing? bur-peeing?) in a different time domain.

    1. Jason Gagnon

      i was watching the crossfit games update this morning and behind tony budding one of the guy in the video talking about the games and the reginals.

      My attentive eye saw 8 min burpees behind him on the board. so i pull out my 7 min pullup and i am going with 8 min burpees. LOL!

      1. Amanda

        I’m sure they’re not that careless with the information…? They can’t be. And I’m hoping not for burpees, that’s boring.

      2. Either they put that there to make people nervous, or as an “easter egg” kind of hint… seeing how the staff at Crossfit HQ seems to like having fun with the community (i.e. WOD 13.0) Im not ruling it out just yet.

  2. WU x 2

    Strength Front Squat x 5
    135-145-155-165-170 (PR 5#)

    Wod = 350 reps

    Happy with my conditioning on this one.

    QOD: Not sure, I just hope for something different other than x mins of the same movement. But ready to tackle whatever the throw at us.

    Mobility
    WU x 2

    Strength: Back Squat

    65-75-85-90-95

    These felt great, despite the still-sore quads. πŸ™‚

    WOD = 144 reps

    Going to shorten my rope RIGHT NOW. Having rope burn all down my thigh is just not fun.

  4. Gillyon

    Warmup
    Jerks (3) 45-65-75-85-95- bar. Not getting full extension. Thank for you being so picky, Kevin! And, no that is not me being sarcastic.

    WOD – 430

    WU x 2

    Strength: Push Press

    70-80-70-75 Dropped back down in weight to correct bad form

    WOD: Double Tabata Double Unders

    20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for 16 rounds.

    Score: 13 (only did 1 the last 9 rounds)

  6. Blake

    QOD: I expect more burpees but I wouldn’t be surprised by Cindy or something else with pretty accessible movements. Something body-weight I am guessing.

    75-90-115-125-130

    Wod 71 Du’s in 2x Tabata
    To me, although a very small number in comparison to most, this number is huge.
    I could not more than 1 DU at a time about 2 weeks ago. I was able to do sometimes 4 in a row.

    Cashout- calf stretch and Weekly Member Challenge

    15 Over Rower Burpees
    350 Row

    2:12

  8. Blake

    WU x 2 (w/ wall balls instead of squats)

    OHS x 1
    125(5) – 135(3) – 140 – 145 – 145 (with better form)

    WOD:
    Double-Tabata-Double-Under-Tabata-Unders
    56 – High of 9 / Low of 0

    Kevin’s DU “Shield Walls” (aka stop flailing your arms out) experiment:
    Managed 5 DUs in a row…so now I have to imprint that feeling in my brain!

    Not as frustrating as I thought it might be. If I’d quite surprising myself every time I string a few together I might do a bit better. Always something to practice!

  9. Mob + WUx1

    Member Challenge:
    15 Burpee-Over-Rower + Row 350m = 1:41 (aaaand he takes the lead!)

    WOD Rx = 369 (PR by 302 reps… March 17/2011)

  10. Kevin

    Come by the gym tonight at 9pm. We’re going to do a live showing of the Games WOD when it’s released. You can also get a chance to see the workout being performed by yours truly and Joanna.

    If there is an intention to keep the Open truly open and accessible, 13.1 won’t be anything that the “mere mortals” like me would regularly have to scale – like pull ups; they’ll save that for later. So something body weight like burpees makes sense if we hadn’t done that first last year (then it wouldn’t be “constantly varied” ;). So, like everyone else I don’t have a sweet clue!

  12. Heather S

    Amanda I found the name of the wod that is my double goat. It’s Nancy: 5 rounds – 400m run and 15 ohs @ 95#. Makes me weep just writing it!!

    2 x Tabata DU for 16 rounds totals

    Score: 300

    last time i did this i was just starting crossfit and my score was 38 so i heard people complain today after the WOD and they had scores of 30 or 36 something like that.

    Please don’t give up because look what 10 months of not giving up gave me.

    Visiting CrossFit EXclusive in Bathurst tonight. WUx1, group mobility.

    Strength Deadlift x 5
    135, 225, 275, 315, 225

    WOD: Flight Gone Bad
    3 Rounds, 1 minute at each station, 1 minute between each Round

    Box Jump Burpees @24″
    Slam Ball @ 20lbs
    Front Squat @ 95lbs
    10′ Wall Balls @ 20 lbs
    Russian Twists @ 35lbs

    Score is total reps: 173

    That was a cardio burn. It is great to finally have the confidence to visit other gyms when I am traveling. So much better than hotel treadmills, or just sitting on my backside watching tv. If you are in the area, they have a great facility and a great atmosphere.

    As for the opening Games WOD. I hope they do something like last year to help everyone get past the opening day nerves. Well as long as it is not max rep pistols in 8 minutes. Then I am just going to go home. Lol
