    I really wanted to do this Rx but glad I didn’t because the Jerks were plenty heavy at 70%!
    Thanks for coaching Kevin and for the “fine tuning” of the shoulder mob.

    *Next time use 70# or 75#

  13. wow I did not enjoy that wod 🙂
    I knew that I should have used less than the % for this but I was scared I would regret it after so I went with it and now I wish I hadn’t! ah well, lesson for next time.

    used 53# kb and 95# jerks… 5 rounds + 4 jerks

    1. Yup those 4 jerks sneak right up on you. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve thought “Hey that doesn’t look too bad” before a wod…

      1. Agreed Heaather. That is the 2nd WOD this week alone that I under estimated. The 1st was Monday’s floor press, front squat, & deadlift treat.

    2. oops, I meant to write 5 rounds + 3 jerks. And I have no idea what I told Kevin for a score after the wod, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t either of those two scores.

    3. Never regret using lighter weights. Use light weights, go faster, finish out of breath sweaty on the floor.

    Really surprised myself with this one. Every jerk felt heavy, from the first one, but I just kept telling myself “it’s only 4…”

    Total – 9 Rounds.

    KB was lighter than I wanted. 45# would have been good, but was gone & I didn’t want to risk my back at anything over that. Push jerks were friggin’ heavy. I should have tried a couple out before 3-2-1 Go! Anyway…made it through with respectable score, so I guess the weight was right. As I stated in an earlier post….I really underestimated this one. Way tougher than I thought….yet still fun that the sick CrossFit kind of way 🙂

    Total: 8 rounds +6 KBS

    Before the WOD, I took the 45# KB and immediately had buyers remorse after I took a couple of practice swings. So, I brought it back to get the 40#. There weren’t any left, so I trudged back with the 45#.
    Then Kevin came by, picked up my 45# and brought me back 50#.
    I thought he was out of his freaking mind.
    But, it urns out he was absolutely right, because I did it. Thanks Kevin 🙂
    Great work 4pm!

    Damn shin splints. Accidentally jumped on a few of the cleans.

  28. Today Paige and I joined different classes..
    Paige joined the 7am class
    She used 50# for the shoulder press
    For the wod she used 30# on the kettlebell, and 55# for the jerks..
    When we talked she felt she should have used the 35# kettlebell, and I convinced her she should have used 65# for the jerks because, hey we both managed it for the Hopper!! She got 8 rounds (woot woot)
    So I had my turn at 4pm..
    Shoulder press I used 55#
    For the wod I used the 40# kettlebell, I promised myself last time I would used the 45# next time.. ~> Next Time! Promise! I used 55# for the jerks.. I know I know.. I realized 10 reps in the hopper versus 4 times however many rounds I get.. I got 10 rounds! Boo-ya!
    Thanks Kevin!
