  • Kellie Webster

    Still having hard time accepting that muscle ups just aren’t in the cards at the moment. When this opens wod was announced I did really well that year. Now I have to sub mu out each wod due to injury. Frustrating not being able to see where I am now on this wod.

    A) 321reps.
    Subbed muscle ups for: 7 strict pull ups +7 ring dips. Counted only as 7 reps not 14.
    Shoulders feeling this week.

    B) 10×138
    Base on old deadlift PR, probably not accurate

    • Tino Marini

      health is your priority. Results will follow after that. Stay positive and things will get better!

  • Daniel Mendelsohn

    A) 282 with 14 T2B instead of muscle ups. DUs went horribly and then my rope snapped midway through the first round.
    B) 185, 225, 245, 275 and 295. Worked on keeping my back flat and doing slow controlled reps.
    C) done

    • Tino Marini

      Just need to work on that jump rope efficiency! hopefully by the Open Travis will have helped you to get that muscle-up!

  • Samuel Day (16, 170lb.)

    A. 2 rounds + 7MU. First time found this workout and it was harder than it looks! Didn’t string MU’s together well.

    8×337 – failed. Only got 5

      Reset tomorrow and hit Friday hard!

  • Cameron Wolfe

    B: 225# x10, 245# x10, 265# x10, 315# x8, 320# x3.

    In 2015 the first 7 MUs took me about half the workout, this time I was done the first round with 5:42 left. I know I can get 2 rounds, but I was a little excited with how well the first 7 MUs went this time around and I paid for that in the second round. None the less, a 50 rep improvement from the Open two years ago. Thanks.
