Front Squats, good and bad

    uggghh... 80% of your 1 rep max for the WOD was pretty difficult. The best advice; do NOT bail on the weight! It was virtually impossible to get the weight back up (Dave had to come over and help me re-rack it). 185 was the weight, 8:32 was the time and I lost 25 seconds from bailing with 2 reps left in the last round. The run wasn't so bad, but trying to get through 8 heavy front squats after running 400 Meters was tough indeed!

    This workout was like a bad dream where you can't run.....quite awful 7.53 with 205# front squats maxed out at 255# front squats, happy about that! Could have probably went heavier, but I'll take it!

    I thought that 80% 1RM had to be a mistake. This WOD looks brutal. I can't wait to give it a shot.

    Matt's shortchanging himself. He took a break, then did a second round at 135. I got up to 235 for my max, and did the WOD in 8:54 with 185. Really not a fun one.

    To clarify, he did the WOD, took a break, then did the whole thing again. Pretty serious stuff.
