Squats: 11 rounds, ass-to-ankles
Pushups: 10.8 rounds, chest touching deck/full extension
13 rounds, but I'm sure my form wasn't nearly the equal of Matt's. Oh an easy one, thought I, no big weights to push, no running. Not easy, no.
9 rounds squats
8.3 rounds pushups
Pushups were the bottleneck. Squats were not too bad.
I just realized that I shorted myself 1 round.
16 rounds squats/ 16 rounds pushups plus 26 sqts B4 time ran out.
I was able to perform 7 sets of squats and 6.3 sets of push-ups before time ran out, however I had to break them up.
Squats -- 35 --- 35 --- 35 --- 20,15 - 20,15 - 20,15 - 35
Push-ups-20 - 10,10 - 10,10 - 7,7,6 - 7,7,6 - 7,7,6 - 7
8.5 rounds of squats
8 rounds of push-ups
Got to do this one with Mark Mueller and Brain Mandock, both of whom buried me.
Afterwards Mark threw in a kettlebell shuttle run which consisted of transporting 2 35-ib kettlebells individually via a 25-meter sprint with a total of 5 sprints each drill.We each did two.
Either 6.5 rounds of ass-calves squats and 6 rounds of pushups alternating each set or maybe plus 1 set I missed 'cause I was breathing so hard. 1st X-fit post. I've followed the site for a while and dabbled here and there but finally broke down and bought a subscription and tried to complete a WOD. You freaks are amazing. I'm a 43 yo ex-rugger from Baltimore who is going to try to recapture the fitness I wish I always had. Thanks to all of you who post such fantastic efforts for the great inspiration!
Played Hooverball yesterday with Pappas. He won this one to even the series at 1-1. A two-man hooverball with the 20 lbs medicine ball in the sand is tough work. My triceps did not want to do push-ups this morning.
Went 10 rounds even with 2 seconds to spare. Legs were burning from round 1 on.
Dave K- 16 rounds is ridiculous! Nice work.
I too fell into the notion that - no weights, easy workout. Ha!
10 rounds squats, 9.9 rounds push ups (23).
Legs blasted after yesterdays DL and todays squats!
8 rounds squats, 7 12/25 rounds pushups. Pushups slowed me way down after 3rd round.
6 rounds ass-ankles squats very strict form and slow
6 rounds pushups chest to floor
harder than i thought it would be
16 rounds - wow! Dave, you have nothing to fear from me...
I managed 12 rounds - finished the last shaky pushup just as the beeper sounded. Had to start breaking the pushups at round three, but at least I was never reduced to any less than 5 per breakdown. Squats started slow and stiff, but I felt better as time went on and was able to increase the speed the last rounds to make up for the slowing pushups.
Did 7 rounds of both. I wanted add in some ab work so I did 35 squats, 25 pushups, and 15 unanchored situps. This slowed me down somewhat but the workout was still hard.
Hi Pukie, stay where you are.
14 rounds on the buzzer after doing last night's deadlift workout. Had to break the pushups up on rounds 8 and 13.
Lynne - you are whupped me good ... and unlike you, I had many hours between WODs! Impressive.
Chad - wow ... 20# Hoover ball before this WOD? I can only imagine how you would have scored today if your triceps had been fresh.
Adam - despite my best efforts 13 rounds was out of my reach. You got me on this one.
10 rounds after a long road ride.
I'm dead :)
My first WOD.
I almost passed out after I finished, but I managed to get in 10 sets of each with 3 seconds left.
I've changed my life and body through 2 years of the BFS program, but after today's workout I'm convinced that crossfit is the next step.
10 push-ups shy of 13 rounds. Took extended rests (30-45 seconds) after every 3rd round. Broken sets on both exercises after round 3.
8 rounds of squats; 7.5 of pushups. The pushups killed me.
I was happy with 4 -- y'all are monsters.
Hope this one reappears in a month or two!
5 rounds in 15 minutes...recovering from back tweak
Did 6 rounds of both. Squats were cool, push ups were really difficult.
1st 35 squat straight
15 and 10 PU
2nd 20 and 15 squat
13, 7, 5 PU
15, 13, 7 squat
15, 10 PU from my knees ( I was junk)
Body weight 305 :)
6 rounds + 35 squats + 7 secs left = tired kid.
squats slow, steady, below parallel.
PU 25 for first set, 10/5/5/5 thereafter.
A very nice exercise in balancing aerobic and lactic capabilities!
