Good Lord…30! You set the bar high, sir. Bravo! If you kept pace that would be 150 burpees while doing the barbell movements…I don’t think I’ve ever done 150… But 108 in this workout probably had you feeling somewhat wrecked. Great work JT. I’m motivated to do this one tomorrow.

Nathan Wylder

This is something I’ve been thinking over myself… Let’s hold each other to this. The way I see it, we both want to be more aggressive in implementing scaled options when it will yield better intensity. The trick is knowing when to scan and when to Rx. Can someone come in on that?

Joey Maltais
Member
Joey Maltais

Yes! Let’s do it! It’s definitely not easy but too often I find myself pacing instead of pushing myself in the uncomfortable intense zone. We gotta go when we don’t feel ready yet, keep pushing more reps when we think we’re done and just dive in that intensity and push the limits as often as we can. If we have to tweak the wods or weights a bit in order to do that I think it will be well worth it for us

Nathan Wylder
Member
Nathan Wylder

Deal. Let me know what you think of Friday’s wod as soon as it posts.

Joey Maltais

I’m definitely going to scale the lunges. Thinking 24kg kbs should do… i know they will still be hard but as long as I can finish the sets within 5:30-6:00 I don’t think I’ll go any lower. What are you thinking?

I tried to pace myself. I knew that T2B was going to be a trainwreck (and it was), so I planned to do pullups and pushups UB, but do 8/7 or 5/5/5 on T2B, but even that strategy didn’t work after rd2. Wall ball shots is another weakness (mental weakness) so I broke those up every round too. I will be very curious to see what my times will look like after I get T2B down. All of this stretching, mobilizing and strengthening the thoracic region better pay off!

DOMS from Linda on Sunday set in yesterday afternoon.

Warmup Tabatas:
Hips
Alt position Plank
Shoulders(x-over symm)
Assault Bike – 55cal

A. HS walk, Lsit, strict pull-ups.

B. Modified to 6 sets of 1min work @95#
3 hang clean
6 push press
9 front squat
Max burpees
1 min rest

-10 burpees all six sets. I’m happy I scaled as my legs still struggled on the FS at 95# and the 1min work was right at my max output for today.

I could tell during the warmup it was either going to be a bad day struggling with the weight, or a good day of moving fast and UB if I scaled.

3-4 weeks before I noticed improvement. 3-4 months before my shoulders were pain free again in pressing and ring dips.
