  1. WU x 2

    Deadlifts x 3
    95-115-125-135-145-155(PR reps)

    It’s the first time in a while that Deadlifts felt great. My lower back wasn’t sore like usual.

    WOD: 7 Rounds
    7 Push Jerks @ 85#
    7 Burpees
    7 Pullups (purple band)

    Time: 14:50

    The weight for my push jerks was a bit too high, could’ve been 75# or 80# to do them unbroken. Had to stop in the last 3 rounds.

    1. You have all this time on your hands and this is all you could come up with? Lol Put down the video game controller and I expect a two page answer from you! LOL. Hope you’re feeling better, missing my Saturday xfit partner!

  2. wu x 2 (shoulder press for push ups)
    strength – Overhead squats x 5
    work on form 45, 45, 45, 45

    WOD : 7 rounds
    7 Jerk (95#)
    7 Burpees
    scale 7 Pull ups

    Time = 12:52
    cash out – 2 min of stretching

  3. wu x 2 (shoulder press for push ups)
    strength – Clean x 1
    35×2, 45, 55, 65, 75(F), 75

    WOD : 7 rounds
    7 Jerk (50#)
    7 Burpees
    scale 7 Pull ups (Red band)

    Time = 11:46 all unbroken
    cash out – 2 min of stretching

  4. QOD: PR’s to me are a measure of improvement only if the mechanics are done correctly. So less fit if no PR? Not necessarily.

  5. Another great picture!


    Strength: Shoulder Press
    3x 45-50-55-60-65

    WOD: (scaled)
    7 rounds:
    – 7 Jerks (60% = 65#)
    – 7 Burpees
    – 7 C2B Pullups (scale: regular pullups)

    Pullups and jerks were unbroken, and I’m happy about that. Burpees were pathetic as usual.

    T = 13:51

    Another good workout!

    QOD: Yes, I believe that a PR means more fit. I was thinking about this question this morning, and first I thought that it would depend on the fit, and that sleep, what you’ve eaten, how hydrated you are, etc – would all affect a PR but technically if you’re tired, ate shitty over the weekend and haven’t had enough water, then in that moment when you’re trying for the PR, you’re technically less fit than you were say, the week before. So yes, I believe that a PR means that you’re more fit.

  6. WU x 2

    Strength – Front Squats
    5x: 95-125-135-155-165

    WOD : 7 rounds
    7 Jerk (95#)
    7 Burpees
    scale 7 Pull ups (purple + small yellow band)
    Time = 12:48

  7. WU x 2

    Front Squat
    125 x 3, 145 x 5, 165 x 5, 185 x 5, 205 x 5(PR)

    WOD: 7 Rounds
    7 Jerks 95#
    7 Burpees
    7 Pullups (With Band)

    Time: 12:16

  8. wu x 2 (shoulder press for push ups)

    strength – Push Jerks x 10
    75, 75, 75

    WOD : 7 rounds
    7 Jerk (75#) / 50%
    7 Burpees
    scale 7 Pull ups (6 rounds strict pull ups and last round kipping)

    Time = 11:13(Could be off by a second or two, dont have the book on me)
    cash out – 2 min of stretching

    Shoulder felt good during this wod.

    QOD: There really isn’t a yes or no answer from me on this question. I really like Amanda’s point of view, but the flip side of that, is when someone is at their peek fitness level where PRs are few and far between. Personal PRs are not a something I get too excited over or gage my fitness level, until its really put to the test Ex; 5k runs and Fran from the Paleo challenge. But I guess when it comes down to it, every day I show up for class, I’m that much faster, strong, better than a year ago, so that in it self could be clasified as a PR/improvment. When the day does come that its not a PR from a year ago, well lets just say I would have come a long way to get to that point.

  9. WU X 2
    Strength X 3
    7 rounds
    7 jerks (45)
    7 brpees
    7 pullups (red)
    Time 1536
    Good WOD and I didn’t want to punch Kevin or yell at him.
    QOD I don’t think so. The more fit you become the time between PR;s becomes longer. This doesn’t make you less fit.

  10. WU x 2

    Strength: Front Squat x 5

    WOD: 7 Rounds
    7 Jerks 75#
    7 Burpees
    7 Pull-ups

    Time: 12:41

  11. WU x 2

    Strength 5x push/split jerk
    75-85-95(split)-105(split)-115(split) , I need to work on the split technique, I kinda like it.

    WOD 7 rounds
    7 Jerks @ 60% = 80#
    7 burrrrrrrpees.
    7 Pullups with black band – the first 4 rounds were chest to bar with the band

    Time: 15:56

  12. QOD: Also, age plays a factor. I will not be able to compare with my PR from when I was 42 to when I am 72 although I could be fitter and healthier and better at the mechanics at 72. A 20 year old’s PR compared with when he’ll be 30 and let’s say fitter then will most likely have new PR’s.
    So it is a variable not a constant with many other factors already mentioned.
    Someone give me the formula.

  13. But isn’t the question if you’re fitter than when you GOT the PR in the first place? Not if you’re fitter than say, someone else??

  14. WU x 2

    7 Jerks @ 70#
    7 Burpees
    7 Pull Ups (5 Rounds no bands/ 2 rounds with purple band)
    Time = 17:48

    I have mixed emotions on my pull ups today. Happy to have gotten 5 rounds in without a band (I’ve never done that many unassisted pull ups before), but would have really liked to have finished the WOD without it. However, Rounds 6 & 7 were not pull up friendly to me. And man, these kipping pull ups are brutal on the hands.

    QOD: I agree with Pat’s response….Nope!

  19. WU X 2

    Practiced chest to bar pull ups. I have been unable to do these until tonight! I just know that these will come up in the games.

    WOD: 7 rounds
    7 Push Jerk’s( 75lbs) I did all 7 rounds unbroken!
    7 Burpees

    Most of my chest to bar pull up’s were one at a time, but I am so happy to have been able to do these as Rx. The Push Jerk’s were the easiest part of this WOD for me which I cannot believe that I am writing!

    Time: 15:14

  23. Front Squat 5RM –> I hurt my lower back on my first set….I am not sure what happened, but it still hurts when I move a certain way right now.

    WOD with 95# –> 14:17

    I scaled down to 95# because of my back and I was pretty slow on the burpees because of that too.
