    4 Pike pushups
    8 KB swings (45#)

    7 Rounds + 8 Pullups

    What an awesome workout! that kicked my butt :O. My biggest weakness here was the KB swings, I think I should start practicing those in my w/u. Ring dips I think I could have done with the purple band, going to start trying those in my w/u too!

    Awesome job 6am crew! Great to see everyone was as trashed after that workout as I was 😀

  2. WUx2 (2nd round tried the 20# vest)

    AMRAP in 20 min of:
    2 Muscle-ups (scaled to Bar MU)
    4 Handstand Push-ups(25# plate + ab mat)
    8 Kettle Bell swings (70#)

    9 rounds even

    Attempted for at least 1 MU with about 15 sec left but no go.
    HSPU I could have done without the 25# plate.

    Great job 6Am crew!

  3. Foam rolling

    WOD Scaled AMRAP in 20 min of:

    8 Pullups

    8 KB swings (40#)

    6 Rounds + 8 pullups and 1 dip.

    One round less than last time, but I had scaled to a band for dips, regular pushups and used a 30# KB. Happy with that. Main site Mondays are great. Good job everyone!

    12 Pushups
    8 KBS (35# – went light cause I woke up with a pain in my lower back – could go higher next time)

    6 roundds + 9 pushups… Gee the pushups were the hardest, I wish I could do SSSSSSSSSSSSSpike pushus or HSPU … 4 of them seems so much faster?

      1. Harder yes… until you get stronger and stronger and stronger…. My wish is that I could do them and I would find it easy 🙂 LOL

  7. Thank you Chantal for pointing out that it is a pike pushup and not a spike push up. Only took 3 years for someone to tell me.

    Nice spush sjerks btw!

  9. May 25th – Greater Moncotn Dragon Boat Festival is on! CrossFit Moncton has entered a team and we need paddlers. All you need to do is raise at least $100. Of all the money raised, 60% goes to Lion’s Sick Kids, while 40% goes to our charity of choice, the Moncton SPCA. We came in 4th last year and raised a total of $2500. Let’s see if we can top that this year!

    You need to register to participate!

    “Nate” as Rxd

    Still need to work on locking out at bottom of *all* MUs (good call Coach Rob). Not consistent but I am pretty sure I locked out more than I did not. Something to work on. 10 Rounds is doable for “Future Me”… better MU transition and faster start on KBS.

    Nice to see some different faces! Everyone should try to pick a time they rarely go to and try it at least once to see a new face, or an old one! 🙂

    I don’t care what anyone says…Coach Rob, you are pretty nice. Hehe ;).
    In all honesty, thank you for the tips. You ran a solid class.

    1. I wanted to cheer on your jumping muscle-ups Gillyon, but I was having a hard time breathing…
      Nice work!

    First time for pike push ups. No wonder I only had to do 4 – those suckers are tough!! Glad that one’s done but still a great wod to start the week

  16. Whats a Crossfitter to do when there’s no room in the class? Go nuts, Hopper style!!

    1. Oh, so my OH Lunges made the cut? 🙂 Great job Mario. Sounds like a tough core workout for sure.

    1. That’s a lot of rounds! Time to add more weight or lose the 25 lbs. 🙂
      Still interested in a muscle up race?

    This was tough on the grip… push ups were a biatch!

    1. Visualized what I had on my bar when I finished my OHS and remember the 15#, 2×5# and 2×2.5# so I did get up to 30#

    Scaled to:
    8 Ring Rows
    8 Parallette Dips
    12 Push Ups
    8 KBS @ 20#

    >>> I probably am ready to do more than 20# for KBS, as long as I maintain good form, I think.

    Score: 5 Rounds + 8 Ring Rows

    Being MIA for 11 days certainly wasn’t a good thing, so I was glad to be back tonight and I needed every second of that 20 minute butt-kicking!

    I feel like I am more in control of other areas of life, when I follow through on my CrossFit commitment, if that makes any sense at all. 🙂 It spills over, I guess…

      1. Thanks, Lora! It was great to be back!

        Sorry for any confusion I may have created re: set-up. You were really patient while I was being a spaz. 😛

      2. Spaz? Hardly! There was a lot of equipment to get set up for this WOD. I didn’t want to crowd you too much….classes with lots of different movements and lots of people are always interesting 🙂

      3. Usually, I’m slow to get my space set up and end up with a barbell in one corner of the gym and all the rest of my equipment in the other. Ha ha!

        It worked just fine though. 🙂

  25. WU x 2

    Practiced HSPU’S, Jumping MU’s and KBS


    2 Jumping MU’s
    4 HSPU’S with 25 lb plate and abmat and two 45lb plates on each side
    8 KBS @ 50 lbs

    10 rounds + 2 HSPU’S

    I really liked this WOD!

    Great class Amanda! A lot of balls on the air to juggle tonight and you juggled all of them quite well!

  26. WU x 2

    Back Squat 1:


    8 pull ups (no band)
    8 Ring Dips (Skinny Band)
    4 HSPU with Ab Mat
    8 KBS @ 50#

    6 Rounds + 1 PU

    First time using the 50# KB in a WOD. Felt pretty good, but only because there were low reps. My apologies to anyone in my immediate surroundings during my last full round of pull ups when I dropped several F-bombs after failing 4 pull ups in a row….very frustrating when your chin just won’t go over the bar. Grrr!

    Fun WOD. Really liked this one.

  27. Mobility
    WU X 2

    No strength – was supposed to be front squats but wrist didn’t feel right in the 1st rep.

    WOD – Nate

    Scale 2

    8 pull ups black band
    8 paralette dips
    12 push ups
    8 KBS 70#

    Score – 5 rds + 4 dips

  28. Mobility
    WU x 2
    Lacrosse ball on pecs, traps, glutes, calves

    Strength: Front Squat x 5
    95(10)-135-145-160 *ran out of time, but was happy to stop there. Cycling almost 90k last week has left my legs a little tired.
    Great sharing a bar with you Jeremy 🙂

    WOD “Nate” scaled
    2 MU (progressions on rings with blue band)
    4 HSPU (strict with 25#, 10# and abmat)
    8 KBS @ 53#
    Total = 10 rounds + 2 MU

    Thanks for the feedback on my KBS Coach Marie-No. 🙂

    Cashout – suntanner stretch….in the sun…..ahhhhh.

    1. nice job on this one, and good choice on the progression, I think that is the best one for MU as you get the “feeling” the same as the MU.

  29. No strength, no time

    Nate, scaled to 50# kb and pullups/dips instead of MU’s

    I only got 4 rounds + 2 HSPU. That’s a round less than last time but I was still using a band for my dips last time and I went up 15# for my kb.

    I should have scaled it to get more rounds…it was mostly the dips that slowed me down though, because I haven’t been practicing them enough. Going to add them back to my warmup.

  30. Mobility
    WU x 2

    Strength : push Jerk x 5
    95-135-155-165-145(back down to work on opening knees and hip pop)
    Thanks for sharing Lora and for the tips. Still lots of mobilty to work on

    WOD Nate: Scaled
    AMRAP 20 Mins
    8 pulls ups
    8 ring dips ( 2 small purple bands)
    4 pike push ups
    8 KBS ( 53#)

    Total : 7 Rds + 5 pull ups

    1. Smart move to lower the weight and work on form. I struggled with push jerks for about a year and a half (ask Kevin and Jo…I’m not sure why they didn’t give up on me). It will come. Focus on keeping those heels down on the dip and really jumping the weigh up. Squeeze your butt. Get those knees straight and then dip back down under the weight. Its fast and powerful. You are well on your way 🙂

    Wod (Nate)
    Amrap 20 mins
    8 Pullups 8 ring dips
    4 hspu’s
    8 kb’s 70#
    Started off terrible one reason not being able to do muscle ups… But started my ring dips and strap wouldn’t hold my weight had to fix it a couple times then got it tied, then my wall spot was stolen so I was constantly changing places just to stay out of everyone’s way.. Kb’s went perfect… Lol
    7 rounds 8 dips. Most of my hspu were strict. Not on purpose but my brain wasn’t working.
    Great class all in all. Thanks Mario
