“Diane”

21-15-9 reps of:

  • Deadlift (225)
  • Handstand Push-ups

This was my first time doing Diane outside of the Open. I fully expected to get cut by the time cap (12:00). I did all of my HSPU in sets of 3.

Result: 12:00 (87 reps)

Three reps shy of finishing! I’m confident that I’ll be able to get that addressed this year and finish under the 12:00 time cap.

Strength

Deadlift – 3-3-3 (30×1 tempo)

I worked up to 275#

Metcon

8-6-4-2-4-6-8 Deadlift (275#)

After each round:

  • 8 HSPU
  • 16 Slam Balls (30#/20#)

I scaled the weight to 225# so I could move quickly for each set. Kept the DL unbroken and scaled the HSPU to 5 each round. I ended up getting 5 unbroken HSPU for 6 out of the 7 sets (4/1 on the last set). Finished in 14:52.

Hopped into the Saturday class! Partner workout, but I ended up going solo due to lack of partner.

4 rounds for time:

  • 10 Deadlifts (275# – Double overhand grip, no hook grip)
  • 20 T2B
  • 30 Cal Assault Bike

Time: 22:48 Rx

This one was grippy to say the least! Those deadlifts…phew they were tough. The weight wasn’t challenging other than the grip! Double overhand was super tough.

Snow day! Joined the 8AM class for the workout before doing 20.3.

For time:

  • 1000m Row
  • 100 Double Unders
  • 750m Row
  • 75 Double Unders
  • 500m Row
  • 50 Double Unders

Time: 13:07 Rx

I kept the row pace around 2:00/500m and only messed up 5x total on the double unders.

Next, I did 20.3:

For time:

21-15-9 reps of:
Deadlifts (225/155)
Handstand push-ups

Then,
21-15-9 reps of:
Deadlifts (315/205)
50-ft. handstand walk after each set

Time cap: 9 min

I made it through the deadlifts unbroken in 33 seconds and then did 14 total HSPU for a score of 35. That darn standard is tough!
