  1. Workout from yesterday –
    Warm up
    Sports drills – sprinting with IT band resistance
    Played indoor soccer = hyper extend knee a little, and a twisted ankle

    Back Squat to 315×1 super low, felt good

    OHS 3RM – 135×3 – 155×3 – 185×3 cut it there with the no dumping rule.

    Push jerk practice 3RM went very well!
    135×3 – 155×3 – 185×3 – 205×3 – 215×3 – 225×3 – 235×2 (f)

    WOD destroyed me.

    Disappointed with my score..but feel like I worked pretty hard this morning and don’t know that I could have done much better..

    Really struggling to stay focused during my workouts lately…thanks for keeping me on track Chantal!

    QOD: Running, swimming, pullups, pushups, and as much as I hate them, squats.

    1. I also think you worked pretty hard! You did a great job on keeping your reps consistent! This definately was a tough one. Happy Friday!

    2. Nothing wrong with that score Amanda. That was some heavy weights you used. (And your form always looks great on your lifts. I’d trade great form for speed any day)

  14. Wu, practised squat snatch
    Tabata cleans 95 lbs 41
    Tabata squat snatch 55 lbs 30

    If I had to throw 5 exercises in to a metcon and call it “Jon” I’d put:
    Double Unders, front squats, pullups, box jumps, power cleans

    QOD
    Push Press, Rowing, Swimming, Pullups, Kettlebell Swings

    1. Question: do we have to be able to do all the movements (ex.: hand stand pushups, strict pull ups, muscle ups)? or can we scale the workouts?

      1. If its anything like last year, Rx is required to be in the official standings, but you can scale and still participate.

        Also I personally found that last year’s workout were well planned in terms of accessibility. Some of the weights were a bit heavy.

        Im sure the coaches can elaborate a bit more on this.

      1. But the tough mudder doesn’t soune like it’s all fun and games! Come onnnnn the games are only 20$ and you don’t have to pay extra gas or take a hotel room to participate! πŸ˜› heheh

      2. Yeah, everyone should join in the fun, honestly, these are some of the most fun workouts to do during the year, great atmosphere at the gym.

      3. Just registered. You guys get me to do the craziest things in 2012. It’ll be a lof of fun I’m sure! πŸ™‚

    – Was a tough one, liked it. Perfect to work on muscle endurance and cardio required to lift heavy during WODs.
    – Lower back was getting tired on the squat snatch, but no sharp pain on either side, an improvement of some sort.

    Good job everyone! Have a good week-end!
