WOD: December 12, 2012

Standard

12/12/12 WOD:
Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes following the rep scheme below:

  • 100/65 pound Thruster, 3 reps 3 Chest to bar Pull-ups
  • 100/65 pound Thruster, 6 reps 6 Chest to bar Pull-ups
  • 100/65 pound Thruster, 9 reps 9 Chest to bar Pull-ups
  • 100/65 pound Thruster, 12 reps 12 Chest to bar Pull-ups
  • 100/65 pound Thruster, 15 reps 15 Chest to bar Pull-ups
  • 100/65 pound Thruster, 18 reps 18 Chest to bar Pull-ups
  • 100/65 pound Thruster, 21 reps 21 Chest to bar Pull-ups…
This is a timed workout. If you complete the round of 21, go on to 24. If you complete 24, go on to 27, etc.
All week we’ve been doing previous CrossFit Open WODs & we’ve had the top finisher’s scores to compare ourselves to, which is kinda cool.
  • Dan Bailey finished round of 18, extra reps 21 thrusters and 9 pull-ups.
  • Camille Leblanc-Bazinet finished round of 21, extra reps 5 thrusters.
Scaling: 55# thrusters; “baby” blue band for regular pull ups (not chest to bar)
Score: 75 total reps; completed 12 reps of each + 15 thrusters
I really liked this WOD. It was nice & short & I kept the weight managable on the thrusters, so it was difficult but not so much that I wasn’t able to get enough reps in to feel like I got a great workout. Even though I’ve started getting my pull ups down with no band, given that the workout was so short & I can’t string any pull ups together, Coach had me use a small band, which I thought was a good idea. It was a little disappointing though, I won’t lie. Great WOD!
