I wish I could have waited; I would much rather have done this WOD than repeating 030821!
I'm not sure I understand this workout - is it:
Deadlift 10-10-10-10-10-10-10, 15 pushups? If so, how long should we rest between the dead sets - or should we just keep going until we reach 70 deadlifts?
You really need to come up with a standardized method of workout description. 10RM x 7, 15 push-ups means 7 reps at my 10RM weight followed by 15 push-ups equals one round. There was really some confusion a few weeks ago:
Complete 3 rounds for time of:
Run 400 meters
BodyweightX10 reps of 7 back squats/12 sit-ups
The above routine is difficult to understand.
A rep should mean one performance of the exercise movement.
A set should mean a number of reps performed one after the other.
A round should be a series of exercise sets performed one after the other- often repeated.
Maybe the "[" and "(" symbols could be used for further clarification.
I interpret this to be using your 10 Rep Max weight but only doing 7 reps on the deadlift followed by 15 pushups. Doing as many of these sets as you can in 20 minutes. In some ways it is similar to Escalated Density Training.
Trevor - Thanks a ton! Yeah, I agree, sometimes I have to read it a few times to understand.
Thank god I don't have to do more than one round of 70 deads in a row 0_0;
Okay, just did it - 11 rounds. I had to lighten up on the deads, because my back is still sore from a few days ago.
Deads - #175
All in all, a good workout, though it was hard to keep making myself grasp that bar.
Trevor, I couldn't agree more. Your interpretation of today matches our intent and that structure last week was ugly to everyone who looked at it. We're lucky that most people figured it right out.
What we've avoided like the plague is an algebraic notation. What that seemed to deliver is lots of noxious prose or simplified confusion.
We'll go algebraic. I wonder what that will do for the confusion rate? Any guesses?
Used 245# for the deadlifts and rings for the push-ups. Tried to pace myself and 1 set per minute but started falling behind after the 5th round. Although deadlifts became increasingly difficult, it was the push-ups that really did me in. I had to start breaking sets after round 5. Finished 13 rounds in the 20 minutes.
Nineteen rounds with 185 pounds. Still painful memories of the Nov 14 WOD prompted me to be a bit conservative on the DL's.No breaks .144 pounds Bwt.
12 rounds with 205#
started off thinking i'd get 1 round per minute but the deads just kept getting harder - had to break sets up in last 5 rounds - tomorrow's WOD is going to do me in (the pull ups will be killers)
Gee! This WOD looks like a lot of fun.
I had to get my workout done and be out of the house long before the WOD was posted.
So I did my own thing:
Snatches 25L + 25R (16kg)
Step ups 25L + 25R (14" box)
Snatches 20L + 20R
Snatches 15L + 15R
Snatches 10L + 10R
Snatches 5L + 5R
A nice workout in 19:09
I'm looking forward to tomorrow's WOD.
8 Rounds, 255 lbs. in 20 mins.
Ryan, great job !
15 rounds 205# (Bdywt 165). My 12 year olds son Connor's first go at Deadlifts 55# by 15 rounds (Bdywt 85).
7 rounds. 245# deadlifts.
205 for 8 rounds. push ups were dreadful the last couple rounds started looking like dive bombers with out the dive.
I'll bite on the "Phillipe off Molokai" photo. He's actually somewhere off Hawaii Kai on the south shore of Oahu rather than off Molokai. (You can see the distinctive profile of Diamond Head off to the left.) If it had been off Molokai, that would imply that he had sailed a 505 across a channel to get there. That could be a real hair ball proposition--something which Phillipe is fully capable. I was just noting to someone recently that unlike your typical software mogul turned racer (e.g. Larry Ellison), Phillipe is the real deal and trains as hard and sails as well as any of the pros that crew for him.
10 rounds with 143 (65kg).
The deadlifts were too light and the push-ups wore me down; precisely the opposite of what I had anticipated. That is so interesting when things like that happen, and it seems to happen a lot. I think one thing will happen and then something unexpected occurs. What fun.
I enjoyed this.
Brian, he actually "off" any bit of land, no?
225lbs deads. 10 rounds 20 mins.
8 rounds with 235 lbs. Kind of died out at the end, probably could have pushed 1-2 more rounds.
8 rounds, 225 lbs, at bw 153.
Thought I would do them with 245, but the first set convinced me otherwise.
Very frustrating workout. I wanted to use 275 but the lack of chalk (and grip strength) made me drop to 255 after 1.5 sets. Sets were broken up from then on as I kept almost dropping the bar.
Managed 8 sets with 255 lbs.
Bdy Wt= 165
This was my first WOD and managed 6 sets with 205lbs. I could have done a few more but I haven't gotton much sleep the last 2 days and just couldn't do any more. Tonights workout will be 10hrs of sleep.:}
10 rounds; 175# trap bar deads (bwt 110). Went kind of conservative on the weight but the back held up, and that's what counts!
8 rounds with 125lbs....really paid attention to form
10 rounds with 185 pounds (180 bodyweight)
Choose too light of load, but my fighting spirit just wasn't there tonight. Working out in a temporary outdoor shed with nothing but a drop light for light. Cool stuff.
I am running about a week behind. Finished the workout in 13 rounds. Used 225lbs. on deadlifts. Also trying to lift while on Navy ship at sea. It tends to pull and drop resistance as the floor moves with the ocean.
315 for the deadlifts. 7 rounds. 225 bodyweight. I was bushed at the end. I had to lay down for a while. Had a Sobe with 33 sugar carbs while waiting for some medicine at the pharmacy for my young one, and it made me feel a lot better. I definitely think simple carbs have a place.
