    Deadlift 3x320, 3x340 and gassed out after the 1st rep of 360. WOD: 58x 225# in 16 rds. This one was a beast! To make myself feel better, I'll call it 13,050# of work.

    got up to 285 (?) x 3 on the DL. ummmm...this definitely falls into mandys "top 5 worst wods ever" category. i got brave and started at 225...made it through 8 rounds, but almost died. so finished out the last 8 rounds with 135 for sets of 1--HELLO muscle failure! i think my total ended at 64 reps + one bloody hand...awesome :) dunsey, can i start counting ibuprofen as carbs for the zone?

    Yeah, Sarah and I hit 205 for 5. That was plenty of warmup for that B-R-U-T-A-L WOD! I did 155#s [I thought that was Rx?] and got 69 reps in total, ending with all of 3 per round. Ugh. The back fatigue is already setting in. Thanks Greg.

    so i read the blog obsessively...and sometimes don't even read the board when i get in to work out, so i started with 185...after 4 minutes with only 10 reps i decided to drop down, and then the weight didn't want to leave the ground...so i did basically what the blog says and rested...then i saw that the board said 155, so when greg did his workout, i did four minutes at 155 and got 21 reps...

    So the board DID say 155?? cool. sorry to hear you started with 185 Lindsay - i'm sure that was TOUGH!!!

    Dave, are you sure that is the right price? I can order large paleokits for $5 each on the paleokit website.

    Sarah, You are not factoring in the shipping costs.

    Got up to 185# x 3 on DL. WOD: Rx at novice level (95#) - 100 reps. I think it's time to move up a notch. Still, it was not easy. Y'all are some strong folks! I like it!

    That was horrible!!! Who ever came up with that needs to be beaten.
  11. Lori Reply
    Beatrice-i like your idea... we could even make THAT into a WOD: 20seconds of beating with a 10second rest. What do you think, maybe 10 rounds?

      Lori, you're freakin hilarious :) and this WOD was Greg's idea :D
  12. andy Reply
    i second that idea of the beatdown, just give me a couple days to recuperate from this hellish WOD
