    Never really learnt kipping HSPUs, but on the 15’s I learnt them pretty quick. Really liked this wod.

  8. WU x 2 (no push-ups)

    Skipping Practice: Could only manage a few “3’s” and a couple chains of single-double-single. I hadn’t practiced in awhile so I know I need to keep at it more regularly.

    HSPU Practice (w/ ab-mat & 25# plate): 5 IN A ROW! PR!!!
    Well…closer to 4.5 as I started with my head on the mat instead of in handstand position…glad to make some progress there. Thanks for the tips Tom!

    –Pike Push-ups (from toes w/ large box )
    –Ring Dips (w/ small purple band)
    –Push Ups

    Most of the 15’s and 9’s were sets of 3…”future me” will push a little harder on the 9’s though.
    Great coaching Pat! Awesome job 7 AM-ers!

    Holy Cow Batman, that was a work-out.
    when they look easy on paper then watch out it is going to be tough.

    I could’ve done the HSPU with a #25 and ab mat and the ring dips with a smaller band…not sure about push ups on toes!! That was definitely a shoulder burner for sure!!! Awesome job 0830 class!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Good lord, you were fast on this one!! Definitely go with 25# plate (or less) and ab mat for your HSPUs next time! Well done!

    2. holy crap thats fast, great job on the Wod Christine, you are turning into that other Bachmann, tearing wods apart!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Shoulder burn!! I find the WOD’s that I have to scale E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G very humbling.

    1. That just means you have lots of different goals & PR’s for next time you do this one. ๐Ÿ™‚
      And, most people have to scale at least something in this one anyway. I’ve been CF’ing for 2+ years and I’d have scaled 2 out of 3 of the movements today.

    2. And you did great – great time, especially with those Shoulder Presses – I bet they got heavy quick?!

      1. Michelle Doucet

        Thanks Amanda! Yup, my shoulders are still sore, hair drying was painful today ๐Ÿ™‚

    DNF ๐Ÿ™
    Finished the 15s and attempted the 1st HSPU but failed it 3 times

    I burnt ou too fast on the set of 21. I went to failure on the HSPUs. Got 8, then 3, then 3 more…then it went downhill from there. A bit humbled with a side of frustration.

    1. This one was WAY harder than it looked. Muscle fatigue set in pretty quickly for me too. I know you gave it your all, Gillyon, and really, what else matters?

    public service annoucement
    Completion of this WOD will result in substantial pain and muscle cramping as well as loss of mobility to the upper body within 3 hours after completion of the WOD.
    just saying

      1. LOL! Yes – it’s like they have some kind of a warning/danger magnet. ‘ooooh, that’s going to hurt? Lemme try it…”

    This was my first ever crossfit wod. First time did 70 # shoulder press and parallettes dips time was 15:58. Did it again on Jan 2 time 9:10. This time a bit slower but with handstand pushups and ring dips.

    1. Nice work Darsey! I saw this morning when I checked last year’s posts that this was your first workout and was anxious to see your results today! Nice progress! I still remember your surprise at how fatigued your shoulders were because when you looked at the wod on the board it was deceiving. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Thanks. Yep, you’re right this wod on paper does not look that bad. This was supposed to be my rest day but I had to try it again.

      1. No Kidding – last time we shared a bar he was shoulder pressing what I was squatting. Super strong guy!!

    1. Nicely done Jeff. 115# hardly seems like a “scaled” version…LOL! Your strength is impressive.

    2. well done big fella.. you did great with that weight!! especially after the way you started your morning off!! lol..

    As usual a Hero wod delivers the hits big time! First push up in the round of 15 I wound up flat on my face when my arms failed to co-operate! Thought I was done-for then but managed to finish in 3’s and 4’s . Push ups were hardest and ring dips were the rest – maybe should use less rubber band next time although I had nothing left in last round and did last 3-4 push ups one at a time.

    To those of you doing HSPU – Freakin’ nuts people. I just wanted to finish under the cap and I barely managed that. Upper arms are a waistland – Good times at cross fit ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. You too girl – you set the bar high for all the women in the gym. When I grow up I want to be just like you ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Great job on the Wod Heather, pulled it in under the wire!! attention whore that you are! lol.. I expected nothing less than you making sure your whole class was gathered around to see you finish!! LMAO cause i know you are too!!
      and thank you for falling on your face in the second round as the rest of us were then forewarned by the coach to be careful of it, I believe I owe you my front teeth that I was able to keep!!

    DNF – did 4/9 push ups at the 20:00 time cap. Thanks for the encouraging cheers everyone!

    The good news is I finally learned to kip HSPUs, so they should be quicker for me in WODs from now on. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice work 6:45 crew! That was a tough one!!

    1. nice job on the WOD Lora, you were so close.. and congrats on learning the kip for the HSPU that will help in the future for sure..

    2. Well done Lora, and those Rx’s push ups were nothing to sneeze at ๐Ÿ™‚ They just about killed me!

    3. You should change that “DNF” to “Gave EVERYTHING I had and worked out at 100% full intensity for 20 min straight”

      … might not fit on the whiteboard though…

    4. Great work tonight Lora. The kip will help you knock off those HSPU’s in future WOD’s for sure!
