    Tough one. I'm already feeling it. 7 rounds of the KB swing/rows. The rows got tough really quickly. 8 rounds of the situp/box jump, and I subbed a 30" box.

    Agreed, the WOD took me by surprise with how tough it was. Did anyone else have pain in their coracobrachialis muscle (the muscle that is at the very top of your forearm that spans the crook of your elbow)? During the single arm KB swings there was actual pain in the center of that muscle for me which was very uncomfortable. I typically don't have pain with normal KB swings, and it wasn't muscle burn, it was actual pain. Fine now, and as soon as I didn't have the weight in my hand I was also fine, but when the Kettle Bell was swinging away from my body it was unpleasant. Any thoughts?

    Doug, same pain for me and my wife. We attributed it to the handstand push ups yesterday, but maybe it was the one armed KB swings. (Erin's pain was present this morning rather than during the WOD but mine occurred during the swings.) The pain definitely went away after my warm-up though, probably because I scaled the weight down slightly.

    I agree though. I thought this was gonna be a nice easy WOD, but was surprised when it turned brutal very quickly--mostly due to the sit-ups and the rings. Feeling it.

    Hey, just thought of something... were you guys tightening your wrist at a slight downward angle during the KB swings?
  8. Phillip B Reply
    Ashley, Maybe not. KBs were passed from palm to palm, so wrist rotation/movement was built into the process... Personally, I think I was focusing on that rotation rather than keeping everything taut.
