15:43- one weight + ab mat HSPU; red band for pull-ups; 35# KB
I’d have to say the ROM on the HSPU was dismal after about 10- not that it’s anything to write home about when I started
I hate burpees.
For Time: Snuck in under 20 @ 19:53
30 HSPU – assisted
50 Kettlebell Swing
Enjoyed the hand stand post work.
“assisted” – i think everyone knows me holding your knees against the wall does not equal “assisted”
those reps were all you horse -
Thanks for calling him out Jeff – Quentin is so humble!!! (which is great) but sometimes I just want to say “just take credit for how awesome you really are. “
19:57 – Coach Mike may need to ice down his biceps after doing Kerber curls – i mean after spotting my pathetic HSPUs. Otherwise as rxd – i’m with Katie re burpees.
Question – where can i get some OKeefe (sp?) for the hands?
Wow – Q grinding out the HSPUs thought he might put a hole in the wall the first time up. It is great to see a group of people work as hard as this group of athletes I miss not coming in Monday mornings – just happy to here and see you all tomorrow.
lowes or any hardware store should have it.
19:26. Hate those burpees – doesn’t matter if it’s 7 or 70.
Jeff – You can get OKeefe’s at Lowe’s. I think it’s in the paint section.
Kelly – Oh – i think it matters 7 vs. 70 – but i hear you. Thanks re the Lowe’s reference – never would have thought…
As Rxd – 16:41
I hate HSPU, I tried to get my monthly goal of 10 at the start but failed, I got 8 and then spent the next 7 or 8 minutes doing 1 or 2 at a time ughh
Brian got the best of me today, good work. Enjoy it today cuz I’m coming for blood tomorrow
bring it bitch. I could get use to this kicking your ass thing but as we all know it was a one day thing! I’m still enjoying it! Sad thing is I was done with pull-ups and most of my kettlebell swings before you finished HSPU and you almost caught me.
Sorry morning crew! – I had a big meeting this morning so I had to miss but I will make it up at 5:30 tonight!
19:01 – HSPUs w/ abmat & plate, otherwise as rxd.
I also share the sentiment of the group when it comes to burpees After seeing my pathetic looking ones on the video yesterday, I spent some time watching videos of Bobby, Brian, and people on CF website do them. I think I improved on them…at least for the first 25 or so – after that, form and speed went way out the window!!
I’ve also decided that Cheryl and Shelley are no longer allowed to go on vacation. Last time my mom did we had Filthy Fifty and McGhee in the same week. Now Cheryl’s gone and we get MUs/wall balls and this WOD back to back Nice work everyone on 2 tough ones!! Brian, you did kick butt today, great job.
14:55 rxd. seriously who puts 70 burpees at the end of a workout. Good job everyone that was tough!!!
20 HSPUs unbroken. beat my previous PR of 15! and yes bobby they were all locked out to head touching! Mike was watching!
16:03 as rx’d…..that sucked!
21:51 as Rxd (with a 45 sec phone conversation with Kelly H in the middle of my burpees)
I am being brutally honest. Mike Brown does not do burpees or HSPU with any sort of grace or elegance!
However May 1st the “Congo Line” is going to be the first WOD of the month. Keywords-Kettlebell, Barbell, Sanbag, Tire, Barbell, PAIN PAIN PAIN!
Burpees were not fun but got them done.
Just for the record, Burpees in CA aren’t any more fun than in DSM! I did the WOD, replacing the pull ups with pushups. 3 pillows under my head for assisted push ups .
The guy who owns CFSanMateo is a huge major accomplished runner, so I’m looking forward to going there tomorrow morning as you all know how much I love to run.
2x 10 OH squat w/ 10s hold at bottom
2x 10 Ring dips
20 rep back squats @ 50-60% 1RM
4 rounds of:
100m; 30s rest
200m; 45s rest
400m; 1min rest
Jaime – sorry! I’ll try to fly under the radar on the next vaca! Miss everyone and have a great week!
17:13 HSPU w/ two weights & abmat, blue band on PU, 35# KB
I need to work on adding claps to my burpees.
