    Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses? 100 duck-sized horses I think, that is a hard question for a Friday morning lol

    I did the scaled option. Made it to the 225# and did two deadlifts trying to get one C&J. I was toast. πŸ™‚

    Great class Shane. Nice job 6am.

    Best question to date…I would fight 100 duck-sized horses. One one horse-sized duck would fuck you up.

    AMRAP in 20 min – Scaled option
    15 Clean and Jerks (135/95#) – 95#
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (155/115#) – 115#
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (185/135#) – 135#
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (225/155#) – 155#
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (245/175#)
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (265/185#)

    TOTAL: 53 reps (155# x 8)

    QOD.. depends, do I have any weapons?
    If not, I’m thinking I’d be better off again 1 horse-sized duck than 100 small ones. If I can only fight like 5 at a time, and there are 95 others attacking me, I’m in trouble.

  4. Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?
    100 duck-sized horses please.

    15 Clean and Jerks 65#
    Rest 1 min

    Got 1 in the 135# so a total of 61.
    Next time start maybe around 85# to get more reps in the 135 range.

    QOD: Definitely the horse-sized duck. I can’t imagine being swarmed by 100 mosquitos, let alone 100 horse-ducks…

    WOD Rx’d
    52 reps

    135 in 1:41
    155 in 5:41
    185 in 12:10
    Managed 7 at 225#

  7. Del

    WOD Rx’d as per Kevin’s suggestion meaning this is what you’re doing πŸ™‚ He was right though, worked for me πŸ˜‰

    45 reps – forgot about the 1 min break at the end and my hands were quite sweaty on the 185 reps so didn’t get to 225 Although 225 is my 1 rep clean so wasn’t too keen on getting there.

    All in all fun one though.

    Thanks Kevin!

  8. Samantha Black

    QOD: I feel like the right answer is horse-sized duck, but you could probably kick a duck-sized horse a good distance.

    WOD – 79 reps using scale option #2 @ 65/75/80/85/90/95 (Split jerk for the last four reps).

    Pretty happy with this… I based the scale off a heavier max than I’ve actually hit since I ran out of time on the last testing day and hit 110# but felt I could have hit a heavier lift.

    Great class! Thanks, Cara!

  9. Practice C&J

    AMRAP in 20 min – Scaled option #2: Start at 50% and add 5% each set (based on 1RM C&J 65#)

    15 Clean and Jerks (30#)
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (35#)
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (40#)
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (45#)
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (50#)
    Rest 1 min
    15 Clean and Jerks (55#)

    Then back to (30#) until time cap (x 4 reps)

    Total = 94 reps

    Thank so much Cara! Fun & sweaty noon hour class.

  10. WOD Rx:
    63

    95 in 1:45
    115 in 5:36
    135 in 10:28
    155 in 15:45 (PR of 4:11)
    In the 3:15 I had to attempt 175# I power cleaned it THREE times before even attempting to put it over head. First PC I hit myself in the face when I went to rerack the bar at my shoulders πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ
    Managed to squeeze in 3 reps after that.

    In 2016 I finished the 155# bar at 19:56, so while this may only be a 3 rep PR, that’s a big time difference!

    *for future self: you did this alone and you just finished a 24hr shift this morning and had two house fires yesterday, you can beat this score.

  11. Heather S

    Definitely 100 duck size horses – A strong leader will quickly get all those duck/horses in a row! πŸ΄πŸ€πŸ˜†

    Fun WOD , thanks Janelle!

  15. Did this on 5/18

    Option 1 – made it to 225# and failed 2 attempts.

    75 reps which is a 3 rep PR over last time. Started 225# with 1 minute left which is certainly a time PR over last time.

  16. Heather Skeard

    I did Rx and got 60 reps. Finished the 155# but only had 40 seconds left so I didn’t change my plates

    Missed this one on Friday, so came in during Monday’s open gym to do it.

    65-70-75-80-85-90 (Completed 5 reps at 90# at 20 minute time cap)

    That was super hard!
