suck. Open WOD 12.1

I did it. Something I try never to do. I went ahead and peaked online at today’s WOD ahead of time. Holy Good Golly. Now why’d you go and do something like that.

It was super interesting to watch the 2012 CrossFit Games Open WOW link on burpees. My Burpees look exactly like that. It’s so true. I know.

See you in the triple-wide!


Russian Gymnastics Warm-Up – Day 1


I. 2012 CrossFit Games Open WOW 1

II. Rounds (With a Partner):

Complete as many reps as possible of each of the following movements:

Kettlebell Swings (53/35)


Wall Balls (20/14)

Jumping Lunges

Row 1 minute (Calories)

*Partner 1 performs max reps at first movement, then rests while Partner 2 works at same movement. Both athletes then go on to the second movement.

End of Day Post Script – Completed: Part I – So, the maximum amount of Burpees possible in 7 minutes? Well, Burpees are my SUCK. I got 46. Most folks around me were over 60, even into the 80’s. My partner, even while grunting through back pain, hit 76. Or was it 74. Either way. Pretty impressive. Of course it took me a minute to find something tall enough in the triple wide that was 6″ over my upwards outstretched hand, that I had to jump and hit. This provided a group laugh at the beginning of the WOD as folks looked at me and wondered where I would end up. In the real world this kind of stuff sometimes bothers me. At CF, not in the slightest. We’re a family there. And they have each earned the right to comment on something so blatantly obvious as my height.

Part II – 26 KettleBell Swings @35lbs. 16 Pullups. 25 Wall Balls at @14lbs. 30 Jumping Lunges. Rowed one minute and burned 19 calories. I can kick karate kung fu ass on the rower. We all have our weaknesses and strengths.
