Compare to 8-4-2011 Burpee wounds. 49 Comments Colleen (c4!) on May 18, 2012 at 9:48 pm Love that Burpee “poster.” Reply Big Mike on May 18, 2012 at 9:56 pm Hey Masters competitors…..not admitting that I don’t have muscle ups but I’m going to try a couple of the Throwdown WODs tomorrow at 10 if you care to join. There should be room in the back or even outside. Reply C4! on May 19, 2012 at 9:03 am Awesome, see you then! Reply Sammy B. on May 18, 2012 at 10:27 pm Love the poster too. If I was theoretically going to try this WoD in the barn, how does it work? 1 of each then 2 of each etc for 20 mins? Reply PatS on May 19, 2012 at 6:38 am Exactly right. Increase the number of reps each round until you run out of time. Reply Sammy B. on May 19, 2012 at 7:16 am Thanks, Pat! Reply Erica D. on May 19, 2012 at 8:11 am For Friday, May 18th: 7/7 Paleo Cactus Crossfit WOD: 3×5 Backsquat: 95#, 105#, 105# 10 RFT: Sprint 50 m, 13 KB Swings (35#), Spring 50m, 8 Burpees (23:11 Rx) I’m feeling the poster Reply potsy on May 19, 2012 at 2:16 pm Nice work Erica! I was just at Cactus Crossfit a few weeks back. Reply michelle on May 19, 2012 at 8:46 am ”Ben” sub 115# FS from rack for squat cleans 18:04 (25 Sec pr w same modification!) This is a killer workout, great doing it with you, Heather V.! Reply michelle on May 19, 2012 at 8:59 am Hey Guys, We have designed a CFNE Masters tee for the throwdown at Ocean State CF and wanted to let all CFNErs to have a chance to get one, too. This is a link to see what it will look like and below that is a link to a google doc with overview of sheet choices and a link to a spreadsheet that you can add your name to and put in your order. Orders must be in by Monday! https://docs.google.com/document/d/188Fx7EEMdRx9PVlb5ZpE5WvDxsFVFSbcSNXxZqMpkkw/edit Reply Big Mike on May 19, 2012 at 12:07 pm Michelle-there is an envelope on the bulletin board with your name on it. Check inside… Reply Katrina on May 19, 2012 at 9:32 am American dream Well good news and bad news. Bad news not one muscle up today. Boo! 1 attempted muscle up and one jumping muscle each round. 6+7 cleans. Good news 140 was my max clean…so thrilled that I did this many. Reply Cotter on May 19, 2012 at 9:40 am “American Dream”: 6 +6 (Rx on Cleans, PUs, Dips) Was going great until 7th round . . missed about 6 attempts to get 7th clean. Just hit the wall. Reply Sammy B. on May 19, 2012 at 9:51 am 1. American Dream: 7 rnds + 3 reps (100#, 2 false grip ring pulls; 2 banded ring dips per MU) Proud of the clean wt – most in a WoD and liked the MU sub. 2. 3x Hill Sprints on wilsondale st 3. 3x 15 gHD situps Wow. Legs toast from yesterday! Happy rest day tomorrow…unless DL come up… Reply Jen W on May 19, 2012 at 9:54 am American Dream: 8+7, 105#, banded pull ups and GHD dips in lieu of muscle ups Ouch. 105 felt heavy. Reply Sue on May 19, 2012 at 9:56 am American Dream: 9 rounds +10. 75# cleans, pull ups and banded dips. Was laboring over what weight to do. Would have liked to have tried to more weight on the cleans, but, was worried about compromising form. As it was, the form was probably not so great with the 75. Still a great workout! Going to have a good PALEO weekend:-) Reply Jim B on May 19, 2012 at 10:14 am American Dream 8 rounds – #175 – chin-ups and ring- dips Reply Max on May 19, 2012 at 10:20 am 7+3rx Reply Dmart on May 19, 2012 at 10:24 am American Dream – 6 rounds + 1 clean Rx Reply Colleen (OC) on May 19, 2012 at 10:31 am American Dream: 9 round even with 75#. First 3 rounds I did pull ups and ring dips. The next 5 rounds I did pull ups and banded ring dips with the skinniest band. Then someone stole my band that was hanging on my rings, so the 9th round, I did bar dips. I’m off to San Antonio all week! No rental car, so no CF! Going to try do do some travel WODs in the hotel gym. Reply Colleen (OC) on May 19, 2012 at 10:33 am PR by 3 full rounds and 10# on the weight. But last time it was a 3:1 ratio for the pullups/dips to MUs. Reply Dave C. on May 19, 2012 at 10:42 am American Dream: 7 + 6 (Sub’d HSPUs for Cleans) Reply Laura c on May 19, 2012 at 10:44 am American dream. 9 x 12. 65#. Pull ups. First 5 rounds ring dips. Last few with skinny band. Really working on form and using 45# bar for masters. Starting to feel better. Reply Beth T on May 19, 2012 at 10:56 am American Dream: 9+1 with 95# and pullups and banded ring dips for muscle ups. A little tougher to explode with the boot on so I’m glad I didn’t go heavier. Reply Sara C on May 19, 2012 at 11:18 am American Dream: 8 rounds even, 60#, with pull-ups and dips in between. Cool stuff today: #1 After class, cleaned 65# for the first time. Starting to realize the lifts are at least 75% mental for me. I can tell from the moment it leaves the floor whether it’s going to be pretty or ugly. #2 Kipped my pull-ups on a blue band for the first time. FUN! #3 Those are MY pretty knees in that photo up there…and they are almost healed. Happy Weekend, everyone! Reply Chad M on May 19, 2012 at 11:39 am American Dream. 7+5 Rx. Reply LEARD on May 19, 2012 at 11:45 am American Dream: 8+17 @155# with banded dips and kipping pull-ups. Reply Big Mike on May 19, 2012 at 12:18 pm Master’s Throwdown WOD 3: 1,1; 2,2; 3,3 etc. AMRAP 7 Wall Balls (20# to 10′) and Sit ups, followed immediately by 3RM Front Squat 13 Full Rounds and 14 Wall Balls 160#’s (Failed on 170#) Floater WOD: 30M Prowler push with 225#, 5 burpees, 30M Prowler: 35 seconds What I learned: 1) Position the abmat right where you fall to the ground when you complete the wall ball so when you stand up from sit up, your feet are in position…quick transitions. 2) Make sure your first WB is a good rep..sets the tone for the set 3) Get the WB’s unbroken…situps are easy 4) Your rest is the time to load the bar for the front squat 5) You probably have time for three attempts so know your 80-90% 3RM and get that on the first round. 6) 10 seconds is not a lot of time, one quick breath between reps is all you have 7) I failed at 170 (fell forward on 3rd rep) but I should have taken another 30 seconds rest between attempts as I still had plenty of time 8) Get the prowler (floater WOD) out of the way before this WOD….I did it about 15 minutes after completing the WB/SU and my thighs were exploding on the return trip. 35 seconds of output won’t affect the longer WOD where the longer WOD could cost you a second or two on the floater which equates to a 10-20% slower time. Hope this helps! Thanks Colleen and Susan…you will both crush this next time! Reply Judi on May 19, 2012 at 12:21 pm American Dream: 10 ends + 5 reps, 65#, pull-ups and ring dips Reply MA Jennifer on May 19, 2012 at 12:25 pm American dream 8+ 9 115, kept it light for trap issues Butterfly Pull ups, ring dips Thanks to all donated in support of my pedaling in Boston’s Brain tumor ride tomorrow, in my brothers honor.

Fun working out w/ u this morning Michelle, super strong on the front squats doing 10#’s more than me! Reply Big Bri on May 19, 2012 at 1:03 pm “American Dream” – 6 rounds + 8, Rx’d. Muscle-ups not great, but better. Last time (3/11) got 4+4 – progress. Reply Sue B on May 19, 2012 at 1:21 pm American dream: 9 rounds with 53# and banded pull-ups and dips. Reply Devin on May 19, 2012 at 1:31 pm American Dream: 7 rounds even @155 Got my first muscle up ever today, woo! Did a combination of MUs and MU attempts for the WOD (I count a MU attempt as half a MU). I think I got 6 or 7 total actual MUs during the WOD and attempts for the rest of the rounds. After party: 1 mile run, easy pace, just under 9 minutes. After after party, planning on weighted vest hill repeats on Mt Wachusett this evening to watch the sunset. Anyone’s welcome to join. Just lemme know Reply Ali on May 19, 2012 at 5:16 pm YEAHHHHHH 1st MU!! Congrats!! Reply potsy on May 19, 2012 at 5:28 pm hell yeah Devin! What an awesome feeling right!? Reply Nick C. on May 19, 2012 at 8:54 pm That’s great work today, Devin! MUs are a huge accomplishment. Reply Martha on May 19, 2012 at 1:38 pm American Dream: 9 rounds plus 10.

Reply Sean on May 19, 2012 at 7:09 pm sterile needle should be fine, your 321GoMD Reply Jen W on May 19, 2012 at 9:50 pm Awesome. Thanks. Reply Kristin B on May 19, 2012 at 5:21 pm American Dream: 8+1 70#. Should have gone heavier. I’ve been saying that a lot lately–gotta just do it. Reply Ben Bergeron on May 19, 2012 at 5:27 pm American Dream – 9 rounds even, RX Reply Nick C. on May 19, 2012 at 6:22 pm American Dream – 7 rds + 3 (Scale 2 – pullups and dips; 2 rounds Rx, the rest @ 185#) Not feelin’ it out of the gate today. Struggled with the second round and failed 3 times, so I dropped down for the rest. Great tips from Dmart afterwards – can’t wait to give it another shot. Next step is working on MU’s.
