Lots of Deads

Went to the Box today and decided to go with the class since they were doing the Open WOD 1. But first we started with some Snatches:

2 Rep Max Snatch in 15 Min
205 x 2
215 x 2
225 x 1 (FAILED 2) 

225 felt really light but when I came back up on rep 2 my left arm gave out when I tried to stand,  I was upset.....but happy at the same time for it to feel so light.  Next came the WOD:

10 Min AMRAP
30 DU's
15 Power Snatch 75#

My score
7 or 8 Rds + 10 DU's

I am upset because at the end I started to try to go faster and lost track of where I was at for my Rds.  I felt like I was going at a decent pace, but I cannot remember what I had.  So, I am saying 7 Rds but knowing it could be 8.  This means I have to do this again soon and have video or a judge.  I wanted to get some more work in before leaving but we had errands to run......so when I got home:

5 Rds
15 Deadlifts 225#
10 Burpees

My time

This one was horrible.....and when I looked at it on paper I thought it would be horrible.  If it looks bad on paper you have to do it.  I was breaking my deads up a lot at the end and that made me want to work on higher rep deadlift WODs. 

I am hoping to get a nice bike ride in with Jada....nothing crazy but a nice 30-45 min ride to take her around Notre Dame.  Then I wil hit my Burpees.  Sometimes if I do a WOD with 50 burpees I will count it....but since I just started the 50 days I am doing the 50 separate tonight.

Is anyone going to take on the 50 day challenge?

Get better!



  1. Hey man.
    We have a similar training style. You said you like high rep deadlift workouts. One workout that I have done was 21-18-15-12-9-6-3 of deadlift 225 and burpees. How does that look on paper?! Give it a try next time you want a high rep deadlift wod!

  2. Inspired by your posts I am doing the 50 burpees for 50 days. My times are a lot slower than yours.
