    Rounds: 3 + 14 pullups. Really wanted 4 rounds. Next time.

    My hands are ripped to shit. I’m not happy about it like Martine. πŸ˜‰

    1. The next time there’s a Crossfit party or event with a lot of us there I’m going to show you all how to tape. Shouldn’t be happening so often.

      1. It’s not just taping…it’s how the bar is held and how much chalk you’re slapping on your hands. Again, you don’t need to bathe in chalk.

      2. I do fine until I start getting tired, then my grip on the bar starts to suck and I start ripping. My first 60 pullups or so were fine, no rips..
        I didn’t know that chalk was a factor as well, maybe I used too much. Good to know, thanks for the heads up.

  15. Ripped hands?
    Check out this post from Kevin in December 2009.
    The tape method in the video works really well… it just takes a little time to prepare. If you need tape they have it at Cleve’s near the back of the store for about $3.00/roll. Personally, I’ve adapted to gripping the bar more in my fingers and have very little problem with callouses or tears.

    1. I watched the video last night and used the technique today and had no issues at all. It was great.

    What a workout to start with.. holy, pull-ups! The cleans were OK, slowed down by the 3-4 rounds, but the pull-up were the big challenge. In the end I was just trying to get 2-3 at a time, and REALLY wanted that full 4 rounds.. did it with about 4 seconds left on the clock!

    Sore hands and weak arms now!

    very though workout, need to place the bar closer to my fingers and prepare tape ahead of time for my hands. My hands kept on getting sweaty, I used some chalk and kept on wipping my hands with my towel. Great job everyone on this one!

    21 Pull-ups

    Time: 17:41

    Liked this WOD!
    Cleans where greater than I expected. We ran out of 25# rubbers so I had to make up the weight with 10# rubbers and steels. I knew that I could not drop the bar and am pretty sure that it forced me to do more consecutive reps that if I had used 25# only. So am very happy with that.
    Pullups, just chipped at them one rep at a time.
