    6 Rounds, not even close to RX (i hate you hand stand push ups), I actually subbed ring push ups (6) for the HSPU's. On the pull ups, did 3 sets of 5 with 2 weight vests on.

    max & troie nailed some really heavy (and really uncomfortable-looking!) weighted pullups this AM - nice work, guys! and thanks for making me giggle (a big ol' kb hanging between your legs just looks funny! erm, i mean badass. totally badass. ahem). 6+ rounds (just 12 kb swings short of a full 7th). scaled everything but the swings.

    Forcing a rest day, but I'm doing a double tomorrow. Def. looking forward to this. I love weighted pull-ups!

    Also (sort of) resting today. Got an indoor soccer game at 10pm. So much for my sleep schedule. Not sure how this is going to work since I'm kind of walking like Frankenstein's monster due to DOMS.

    i was told by a girl at the gym to start posting times, so here they begin... 4 rounds plus 3 HSPU, Rx, which is cool for me because i've never done HSPUs in a WOD before. and props to phil for saying frankenstein's monster and not frankenstein.

    6 Rounds, Rx. Some of my HSPUs may have been a bit suspect at the end. This was much harder than it looked on paper!

    rest day for me! :) and that girl at the gym sounds like she knows what she's talking about.
