I was out in the garage around 10am to take on 17.1, which was the programmed workout for the day. When I did this one over quarantine, I scored a big PR of 17:49, which was 2 minutes faster than my original Open time in 2017. Obviously, I was hoping for faster this time!

For time:

  • 10 DB Snatches (50#)
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 20 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 30 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 40 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 50 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)

I didn’t break until the set of 40 (32-8) and 50 (20-15-15). Final time was 16:45 for another huge Pr. Very stoked about this one!!

I recorded my round times for posterity:

1:54
2:53
3:11
4:02
4:43

Still no baby yet! Yesterday was the official due date. We have a doctor appointment scheduled for later today. Given that the baby is going to come any moment now, I’m cherishing the workouts while I can still get them in.

I roped Zach into coming to the gym with me to knock out this week’s Monster Mash series from CrossFit Linchpin. We started around 10:45AM.

Part 1

7 rounds of:

  • 7 Burpee Box Jump Overs, 24″
  • 3 Bar Muscle-ups

Time: 6:56

Part 2

2 rounds of:

  • 35 Med Ball Cleans, 20 lbs
  • 15 Push Jerks, 115 lbs

Time: 6:39

Part 3

3 rounds of:

  • 25 Kettlebell Swings, 53 lbs
  • 15 Toes-to-bars
  • 15 Ring Dips

Time: 12:05

I’m not sure if it was because of the order, but these definitely progressed from most to least favorite! I was pretty out of gas by the final piece. Rested 5 minutes between pieces.

Headed out into the backyard to tackle 17.1, which I haven’t done since it was originally part of the Open. Quinn was all set with his water table, and I cranked on.

For time:

  • 10 DB Snatches (50#)
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 20 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 30 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 40 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)
  • 50 DB Snatches
  • 15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24″)

I went unbroken through the DB snatches through the round of 30. I broke the round of 40 up into 25/15. For the round of 50, I broke 20/15/15. I finished in 17:49, which is 1:50 faster than the last/first time I did this one! Gotta be happy with that. If I remember correctly from last time, my back is going to be tore up tomorrow morning!

4/9/19

I was really excited for this one going in for some reason. I just thought it would be a ton of fun. I was right!

6 Sets of:

3 Min AMRAP
4 Burpee Box Jump Over (24/20)
4 C2B Pull-ups

*Rest 1 Min b/t sets
**Pick up where you left off at the end of each set. Score is total number of rounds.

I ended up getting 5, 5, 5, 5, 4, 4+7 for a total of 28+7 rounds Rx. I ripped my hand on the fifth set, which explains the low round. Had to go chasing around after my hand grips. Otherwise, I was able to butterfly all of the pull-ups!

3/13/18

3 Rounds For Time:

12 Back Squats (185/135)
15 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24/20″)

-then-

Keep the clock running from part 1 and take until the 22:00 mark to build to a heavy 3 rep Back Squat.

Got the first part done in 7:25 Rx. Moved with a consistent pace the entire time. The last clean to get the bar up definitely got tough! Didn’t break up any of the squats though.

For the back squat, I went 205, 225, 245, 275. Stayed at 275 because it felt heavy as hell after the prior work.
