I didn’t get a chance to post this yesterday because the Internet wasn’t working at all in the place I’m staying…

My hamstrings and inner thighs are really feeling those 100 back squats.. Went in for the 9am.


  • 400m Run
  • 50 feet of Burpee Broad Jumps
  • 2 Rounds with 1 minute rest between
    • 10 Straight plate raises
    • 10 45 degree plate raises
    • 10 Bent plate raises (palms down)
    • 10 Bent 45 degree plate raises
    • 10 Bent plate raises and curl (palms up)
  • 3×3 Turkish Get-ups (35# KB, each side)

I used 5# plates for all of the raises, which doesn’t sound like much, but gives a great burn.


4 Rounds

  • 3 Dead Hang Pull-ups
  • 5 C2B Pull-ups
  • 7 Kipping Pull-ups
  • 2m Rest

The goal was not to come off the bar when doing it Rx, which I was able to do for the first two rounds. Then in the 3rd round I had to drop after the C2B pull-ups, and had to drop a few times in the last round. I was fried and it’s not worth a hand rip.


  • 10->1 HSPUs
  • 10->1 Ring Dips
  • 30 DUs

I kipped all of the HSPUs and had to split the sets up a lot, but never had to use an AbMat for depth assistance. All ring dips were kipping and broken up as well. Lot’s of breaks on both the HSPU and ring dips because my arms are weak and I didn’t want to hit the point of failure! Rx was unbroken for the DUs, but that would have taken me forever. I did get 30 unbroken in 2 of the rounds I believe, but other than that I just did 30 total each round. My time was 24:24.

Gayle, the owner and trainer who has qualified for Regionals the last two years, worked out next to me and crushed the WOD in 13 or 14 minutes, easily doing her DUs unbroken and only breaking up a few of the other sets. It just goes to show how much better someone elite is!

I felt terrible after the class. This had to be the toughest upper body CrossFit class I’ve completed. I was absolutely destroyed and didn’t feel well as soon as I got done with the workout. I’ve had times where I felt bad for an hour or two, but not the entire day. I wish I was exaggerating, but I felt so bad I was in bed all day and took a sick day from work. I was a little concerned I actually had Rhabdo, but I seem ok today.
