Post your answers to comments.


Do not disturb Kev when he's playing the fish game...he needs complete silence to set a new high score.

  1. Way to post early, Max! Now it just gives me more time to think about it……..
    as I was browsing the WOD, I was like–“okay, no problem….” kept reading…..
    100 wall balls—yikes!! okay, who’s gonna be there to crush this WOD with me?

    • Ashley R

      I will sweat it out with you Sam!!

    • I am sure that there are many great ways to define what a HERO is. I would say that one definition, is someone who makes personal sacrifices to help defend and protect others. I am grateful to all the men and women who serve our Country, firefighters, police, who every day serve to help keep us safe and secure. I am sure I am missing some professions—But a HERO can also be someone who is just reaching out to another–with an act of kindness– to help someone in need. BTW, that someone can also be an animal:-)

    I was looking at this WOD on the wall today and said to myself “self, omg that looks hard…..” And now it’s here…. It’s like “the secret”… I thought about it, imagined it and its here. Ok, let’s crush this…. I’m scared of those WB too! How about 9:00??

    • Laura C

      I did not read long enough (I stopped at 100 wb) to see about the hero…. I think a hero is someone who gives selflessly of themselves. Physically or emotionally.

    • I’ll be there at 9 with ya Laura…you can stand on my shoulders for the WB’s….

    Nutts: 24:20 (24″box HSPU 1mat, 105dl, 20″ box, 25 pu attempts (13 or so legit rest attempts), 10#wb, 400su) and and and :)

  10. Mike R.

    Nutts: 33:50 Rx – was going alright until the DUs then had to just grind it out the rest of the way.

    Great job 7 AM!

  11. Heather V.

    Nutts: 20:37 Rx

  12. Nutts: 31:15 (205# DL) fumbled my last 5 hspu… just felt odd trying to kip without the comfy mat for my head! double unders were a tough grind.

  13. Nutts: 25:40 (1mat, 105# DL, 20″ bj, 10# WB purple line)

  14. Michelene

    Nutts: 27:12 (2 abmats, 95# DLs, 10# WBs and 100 DU attempts)

  18. Ashley R

    Nutts: 21:35 w/ mods
    10 kip hspu, 95# DL (nursing glute), 20″ step ups, 50 pull ups, 75 WB 14# so I can walk tomorrow, 100 d.u, 400m run w 25# plate.

    Pleasantly surprised I got that many double unders even tho I felt like throwing up during them. I felt a direct effect from my week of eating and drinking. YUCK!!!

  19. Nutts: 28:43 (205# DL, rest Rx)

  20. Wendy P

    Nutts: 29:55. ….plate/ 2abmats, 95#, 24″, RX pull- up, 10# WB, 400 singles, 25# plate

    I really get bogged down on pull- ups…. It goes soooo slow when you can only do 1-2 at a time…

    Last workout with my daughter for awhile – she is off to college in the morning. It was a fun summer cross fitting with her.

    Lauren: 24:35 1 abmat, 95#, 10# WB, singles

  21. Nutts: 31:41, all rx except 12# wall balls to the 9.5′ target haha. Shoulders smoked.

    Gotta love ripping both hands halfway through pull ups

  22. Craig B.

    Nutts: 19:24

  23. Geoff L

    Nutts – 14:15 Rx

    Nutts: 26:45 (I think) 125# dl, 8#wb (was all I could find so went to legit line), 11 DU Then switched to 375 singles.. )

    Just could not get my head around all those DU attempts.

    Total amazing grind. Hands still shaking… Love it!

    Perfect weather…. Going on a long post WOD walk!

  25. Nutts. 33:50. 205 DL; 2 ab mats; 100 DUs + 200 sus

    Great working with you Ben

    Good times in the box today

  26. Nutts: 23:10 165#DL, 24″ BJ, 14#WB, 25#plate, 400 singles

  27. Nutts: 23:49 Rx

  28. Colleen (OC)

    Jerry: 30:32, Rx.

    Not a PR by about 2 minutes, but I used a treadmill instead of running outside (which was unfortunate because it’s beautiful out today!)

    Row: 10:06, only 10 seconds slower than last time, so it was pretty much the treadmill running that got me this time.

  29. Nutts – 22:14 Rx

  30. Colleen (c4!)

    24:37 25#x2 DB push presses instead of HSPUs; 135# DLs; 30 PUs + 35# KB swings (torn hands).

  31. Andy M.

    “There’s no way you can win this staring contest.”

    8 mile run at 6:30AM 1:19, ugh

    Surfer on Acid at noon: 9:22 off PR by 4 seconds

    Gin & Tonics at 4PM

  32. Christian

    Attempted a 5k row, but again my back and butt just locked up on me 1000m in… I made it 2500m, though and te good news is I rowed a 7:33 2k which is actually a 10 sec PR.

    3×20 GHD sit ups (these don’t irritate my back)
    5×5 GHR (45#) these also don’t bother me And actually offset the lock up from the row.

  33. 22:52 with 185#
    Loved it sort of in a weird Crossfit kinda ugly way

  34. 24:24 (175# DL, 24″ BJs, 14# WB’s, 400 SU’s, 45#)

  35. 30:09 225# DL

  36. Nutts: 42:00 ish. 14# wall ball, 3 ab mat HSPU.

    The good: 250# deadlifts fast with one short break. Pull ups relatively quick.
    The bad: Box jumps were singles, but it was the first time I attacked the 30″ in a long time.
    The ugly: Wall balls, even at 14#, painfully slow. Right shoulder killed. Was gassed by the time I hit the DUs and I didn’t get the rythym going today.

    Glad to finish the workout but looking forward to another, more successful, crack at this.

  37. Molly C.

    Nutts: 23:08 scaled (85#DL, 25 band p/u, 50 WB 10#, 400 singles)

  38. Nutts: 18:41 rx. Du sucked
