    After 2 weeks off Crossfit, I come back to a 10rds WOD. Legs were ok as I did lots of frisbee during that 2 week but upper body was not up to par. Those chest to bar and pike push ups were though!

    Nice to see y’all again! I missed my 6AM wods!

    9 rounds + 2 F.Squats @ 30 min cap

    Last time, I got 7 rounds in 27:14. I did 7 rounds in 22:16 this time. Pretty happy that PR.

    *Future self – C2B and FS were unbroken. Squat clean the first rep. HSPU – get better at them.

  7. Patrick, your videos are always awesome. This one stung a bit as I was not able to attend, but but you always seem to capture the intensity and energy and everything that makes the Hopper special.

  8. Mob
    WU x 2 of:
    — 10 Front Squats
    — 10 Pull-ups
    — 10 Shoulder Press

    Loved the warmup, nice change!

    3 min DU practice. Made 3 unbroken so something to build on.

    WOD: “Bulger”
    10 rounds of:
    — Run 150 meters
    — 7 Chest-to-Bar pullups
    — 7 Front Squats @ 105#

    TIME: 28:15

    Next time Mr. Future Me: HSPU Rx and some more weight for the front squats. My first goal was to finish and now I think I have a good baseline for next time. C2B pullups felt good(?).
    Couldn’t muster a single air guitar riff.

    bulger Rx This one scared me all day and as it turned out, I was correct to be scared! lol

    8 rounds plus 2 C2B

    all kidding aside, I really like the chipper style wods. Today was not a good HSPU day, maybe cause I haven’t done any since the last wod with them in it. And I believe I said then the same thing I”m going to say now, “gonna throw these into the WU mix a couple times a week so this doesn’t happen again!” lol.. to many shiny things to work on!

    1. Good work Jeff, gonna have to start doing your Mobility at home some to get a little extra gym time in!

    C2B and HSPU? Not so much…

    7rds + 3 c2b pull ups.

    Thanks Marie-no great class. Good job everyone in 5.45

  36. Great video Patrick πŸ™‚ It is pretty amazing to see what everyone accomplished – need to be a part of it next year

  37. WU

    150 m run
    7 C2B – Pink band
    7 Front Squats @ 95#….freakin’ heavy!
    7 HSPU with Ab Mat + 10# plate for Round 1 & 2….added a 2nd 10# plate from round 3 on.

    Total 8 rounds @ 29:30

    Tough WOD. Front squats gave me grief tonight. Did them all unbroken, but jeez they were heavy. Preparing myself to clean the bar at the beginning of each round was a head game.

    Love these WODs with multiple movements & low reps.

    Patrick….love the Hopper Video. If I didn’t already do CrossFit, I’d be motivated to.

    1. With you on the 95# found myself saying “stop thinking about it and just lift the thing!” Good job Heidi. So wish I had Hspu in my arsenal!

    8 rounds + 1 push up

    K, that was hard…
    Last time was 24:20 for 7 rounds, this time 23:01 but with pike push ups. I think push ups last time were actually from my knees BUT (and here’s the lesson du jour) I didn’t write in my book HOW I DID the PUSH UPs last time!!

    Sooooo, even if you think you’ll never get an Rx skill, always write detailed notes as to what you used/did/scaled. I know I I didn’t do pike push ups last time, so yay for that, but big reminder about accuracy in my journal

    1. Ugh!! Pike push-ups on black box.

      And thanks Marie No – big motivation in a small package πŸ™‚
