    Probably could have pushed it harder. Working out solo is not the same

    Good look everyone

    Partitioned any way:
    40 muscle-ups (pullups)
    80-cal. row
    120 wall-ball shots

    Did 2 Muscle Ups then
    5 Rounds of:
    — 13 Cal Row
    — 20 Wall Balls
    then 1 Round of:
    –15 Cal Row
    –20 Wall Balls
    ** did 1 Muscle Up at the end of the first 4 rounds.
    Score at cap: 206 (tie break 17:03)

    Should have done more MU at the beginning and not worried about them through the workout. Was too gassed to get any at the end.
    Wall Balls wrecked me again though. My fault for not working on them more.

    Thanks for the tips Coach Matt!
    And CONGRATS to Fred on his first Muscle Up!

    20.5
    8 rounds:
    5 jumping pull-ups from box (chest to bar)
    10-cal. row (1 min ea time)
    15 wall-ball shots (8#) – PR from 6#

    At 20 min cap had 15 WBs left.
    Reps = 225

    If there’s a next time, I would do this in 5 rounds… less transition time.

    Thank you Matt!

    Thanks for judging Fred! Totally gassed in this WOD. Did 5-10-15 reps pull ups were great, but rowing sucked everything I had. Another Open in the books! Here’s to Masters Division next year!

    Did 1 muscle up in the 1st 3 minute. then…
    6 rounds of
    20 WB
    13 Cal row (15 in round 6)
    Then had plenty of time and did 2 more MU’s
    Many failed attempts but shoulders held up good. Had not done these in a long time.

  14. Kevin

    Rx’d in 19:45

    I didn’t know Shane and I were racing. Wouldn’t have grabbed my water cup if I had known 😉

    20 MU at the start
    Then followed Level 2 strategy until the end, when I did 40 WB, 40 cal, 20 WB.

  15. Amy Hogan

    1 rounds:
    20 cal row
    30 wallbals
    Then, 6 rounds:
    10-cal. row
    15 wall-ball shots (14#)

    Reps = 200
    Tie break 18:24

    Tried to get some muscle ups but couldn’t get any

  16. Melanie

    For time, partitioned any way:

    40 muscle-ups (jumping pullups)
    80-cal. row
    120 wall-ball shots

    I did 8 rounds
    5 jumping pullups
    10 cal row
    15 wallballs(10#)
    236 reps
    Pushed myself to do wallballs unbroken
    I may have over paced myself, and wasted time in transitions.
    love reading about everyone’s strategies and successes!

  17. Samantha Both

    WOD done with pull ups and 14# ball (there were no 10# balls left to do it completely as prescribed for the scaled division).

    Finished in 16:27.

    I did 8 rounds of 5 – 15 – 10 and it worked well for me. I was able to maintain a relatively smooth pace throughout.
