Strength = Shoulder Press (3x5reps)

EMOTM for 6 minutes, complete 25 Double Unders
With the remaining time in that minute, complete MAX burpees.

After the 6 minutes, rest 1 minute.

Then repeat.

Score = total burpees

Pace too much and you don’t get a lot of burpees in.

Go balls out and you may run out of gas before it ends.

Have fun!

Come visit the 7am class. Let's just say, it's unique.

    Not a good DU day…
    This WOD should be called anger management. I got really angry towards the end.
    Round 1 : 8-2-2-3-3-3
    Round 2 : 8-2-0-2-3-0

    Tiredness got the best of me. Need to get my core stronger so I can get more DUs.

      Nice score! I love the ‘gross’ at the end. I concur. ๐Ÿ™‚ And thank you for your positive encouragement today. And for all the other days you do it too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    WOD Score: 25 Burpees

    Scaled to 25 singles.

    Now that I have located my rope, I’m going to work on skipping more often. I’m guessing that my not practicing is loosely connected to my not improving in this area.

    Dear Santa,

    All I want for Christmas is ONE Double Under…

    1. Amanda

      “loosely connected” – LOL

      Let me know when you want help with a double under. I can be Santa maybe? ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. First of all huge golf claps for awesome efforts by everyone in the gym lately. I am floored by everyone’s hard word and very privileged to be a coach at CFM!

    Yesterday I realized the importance of posting on the page. I didn’t have my book if the last time we did this may 2012 for me) so I couldn’t compare. That being said should I have had posted I would have been able to compare.

    Let’s give this another try.

    Today’s wod (somewhat on my own – thanks Corinna for cheers and support and Amanda for being an awesome score keeper)

    Rx 135 burpees (had to break up a few skips due to bladder issues…)

    After Sunday and yesterday’s wod, I’m evenore mangled mow. Not to mention bloody knuckles and a broken nail…

    Great great work everyone!

    * Take with a grain of salt, and by grain I mean a huge heap. I buggered up the counting on this WOD pretty badly. Too many variables for me to keep track of ๐Ÿ˜› . between counting DU’s, to keeping time, to counting bur-pees, to telling my self its almost over don’t pass out, I got lost in all the mayhem :D. Still had a blast though.

    Thanks Coach Amanda!

    1. Amanda

      oh I felt SO BAD to tell you that you weren’t done!

      Nice score! And just a note for next time and you look back at this, I think you lost about 5 or 6 burpees worth of time so your score should be more like 88ish.

    I didn’t get to do strength because I had to go home quick for a bit of a wardrobe malfunction before the wod

    Burpees = 55

    My book is about 12 feet away from me and I have a cat and a laptop on me so I’ll guess the breakdown of my reps. I’m pretty sure this is how I remember it.

    This was a tough one, every time I looked at the site today I started sweating in anticipation of it. Thanks for the great coaching Marie-Noelle
