Each 3-minute section begins from the standing position with the barbell on the floor and the Athlete standing tall. Using a ball, box or other object to check for proper depth is not allowed. Every rep counts in this workout. You will enter your score as the total number of reps. See the Scorecard for assistance in calculating the rep total.

Time Bonus
This workout begins as a standard three-minute couplet of two rounds of 10 overhead squats and 10 chest-to-bar pull-ups. If you complete all 40 reps (two complete rounds) before the time cap you will rest until the three minutes is up before beginning the next segment. In the second segment, minute 3 to minute 6, you will attempt two rounds of 12 overhead squats and 12 chest-to-bar pull-ups. If you complete all 48 reps (two complete rounds) before the time cap you will rest until the six minutes is up before beginning the next segment. In the third segment, minute 6 to minute 9, you will attempt two rounds of 14 overhead squats and 14 chest-to-bar pull-ups. If you complete all 56 reps (two complete rounds) before the time cap you will rest until the nine minutes is up before beginning the next segment. You will continue in this pattern for as long as possible. Sixteen reps of each during minutes 9 to 12, 18 reps of each during minutes 12 to 15, etc.

Your workout is over whenever you do not complete two full rounds of the couplet within the time cap and your score will be the total number of reps you complete.

For example, if you complete the first two rounds of 10s (40 reps) in 2:30, you will rest until 3:00 before beginning the rounds of 12s. If you then complete one full round of 12s plus an additional 10 overhead squats (34 reps) by minute 6, your workout is over. Your score will be 74 (40 reps from the first segment plus 34 reps from the second segment).

• Barbell
• Collars
• Plates to load to the appropriate weights for your division
• Pull-up bar

*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 43 kg for the Men and, 29 kg for the Women, 29 kg for the Masters Men, 20 kg for the Masters Women.

Video Submission Standards

Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear that proper depth and lockout is being reached on the overhead squats and the chest can be seen touching the bar on the pull-ups.

    Good luck with today’s WOD everyone!
    I hope you’re all having a good time with the challenge as well, to be honest, my tactic of cooking ahead of time, knowing that I have little time to think about food has been paying off.
    Until yesterday… I had to go on a 5 hour business trip, leaky Tupperware smelling of fish and broccoli were a deadly sin (considering the company i was in), no food was offered at the meeting, and the cafeteria on the corner had nothing i could eat. The following happened: I became cold, super grouchy very fast & energy levels depleted by concentration required for work were not helping.
    From now on, i will never leave the house without a stash of easy-eat, light weight, emergency rations in my bag. It may not be the most flavorful or delicious of meals, but it will save you. Besides chopped apples, nuts and boiled eggs i found the MRE of paleo: Steves paleo-kits http://www.stevespaleogoods.com/ (additionally, for those not willing to miss ketchup during the challenge, theirs is awesome!)

    On a final note, anyone else requiring A LOT more sleep? (I am beating my grandmother to bed) It is the best sleep, and i have to tear myself away from my bed!! But i do dream a lot about eating chocolate and feel very guilty through out. Luckily only day time counts for this challenge, since Chef doesn’t see what I do in my dreams. Onto day 5 challenge-comrades! Keep going strong 🙂

    I may do it again and change my pacing for the 2nd rd…took too long of a break between rds and it cost me at the end.

    • 140307

      yeah,I was surprised

  5. 140307

    64 reps, but was using weighted PVC and ring rows.

  6. 140307

    14.2 Rx’d 78 reps…really want to finish that 2nd round…may have another shot on Sunday, that dropped bar during 2nd set of 12 OHS was regrettable

      Since most of us have probably stocked up on Coconut Oil recently, I wanted to share the idea of Oil Pulling. A bunch of my friends have been getting into this recently (as have I). It’s supposed to have amazing benefits like whitening teeth, reducing plaque, less tooth sensitivity, clearing up skin, etc.


      • 140307

        This looks…interesting…

        • 140307

          Haha yes…and don’t mind the source..it’s all over Google too if you search for it. That link is just where I saw it first so I wanted to give them credit! I really don’t frequent fashionlush.com…

  8. 140307

    35 reps in round one. (Continued working through three rounds)

    OHS are the death of me. MAY do it again but probably not.

  10. 140307

    That went downhill, fast. Especially C2B. Got 71 I think. Also don’t watch the video of Camille/Talayna… your expectations will be set unrealistically high haha. Think: “Oh, that looks pretty easy / they look like they’re just coasting”

  11. 140307

    My absolute favorite snack in between meals are ants on a log…except instead of peanut butter, I do almond butter…perfect balance of protein and carbs and a little sweet to get me going till the next meal!

  12. 140307

    113 Rx. Did not feel as easy as Camille and Talayna made it look…

    Hi all,

    Tip of the day and how I plan to survive Chipotle cravings:


    fast “barbacoa meatballs with guac”.


  14. 140307


    These videos are kind of old but I just discovered them. I got hooked on them today and had to watch all 13 that they have made. I can certainly self-identify with somethings in these about starting crossfit and trying the paleo way.

    14.2 was tough for me today in many respects. I have a lot of work to do towards OHS and find some adaptions for my grip but this week has been a few first for me already. I have not been able to successfully ascend the rope before this week and I did 5 x 15′ and although I only did the bar today for my OHS, it was the first time I have been able to complete the movement getting my hips below my knees. I’m expecting big things by the end of the remaining 6 weeks of the challenge!!!!

  15. 140307

    Couldn’t make the gym today… 🙁 here is a tip: looking for a place to go with friends with a high chance of eating perfectly clean without having to order things with crazy modification? Hit a good Sushi place–plain salad with lemon wedges, and order up the Sashimi! (Pack your coconut aminos)

  16. 140307

    Tip of the day (err..every other day) – if you’ve ever been interested in a CSA (invest a share in a local farm and get their produce throughout the year bla bla bla) I highly recommend checking out Hometown Harvest, my CSA! They deliver once a week, you can customize your bags or get them pre-picked. And best of all, they have great grass-fed protein. You’ll always have something interesting to look forward to so take a look and hit me up if you want more details: http://www.hometownharvest.com/home.php

    82 reps – 22#, ring rows
    In retrospect, should have gone heavier but I’m so tired this week and it’s messing with my confidence.

    Sweet Potato Hash Browns
    Makes about 4 servings
    2 large sweet potatoes (whatever that means to you)
    1 tbsp fat of your choice (I used bacon, but coconut oil, olive oil, or butter would all be fine)
    salt to taste
    1. Peel sweet potato and then grate on a box grater. I used the side that looked like it would make normal sized cheese shreds.
    2. Line a plate with a couple sheets of paper towels. Dump the shredded sweet potato on the paper towels. Using another couple sheets of paper towels, press firmly on the sweet potato, trying to absorb as much moisture as possible. (I did this two times)
    3. Add fat to a skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add shredded sweet potato in a thin, even layer. Cook until crispy and browned on both sides–about 4 minutes or so depending on your stove.
    4. Remove hash browns from pan and set on another paper towel lined plate. While hash browns are still hot, sprinkle generously with salt to taste. Serve hot with additional breakfast foods.

    Shooting to get into the second round. Gotta work on those C2Bs and figure out how to string them together.

    Here’s my tip, it’s a gimmie, but it’s making my Performance Challenge life better.

    Since baked chicken, reheated is like eating a very small saddle, I’ve found that cooking my chicken breasts in a crock pot is amazing for reheating later, it’s still tender and it’s so easy to do.

    From frozen to perfectly cooked in 8 hours on low. Doesn’t require anything else, but I would recommend using some low sodium (no sugar) spices on it to jazz it up a little. When it’s freshly cooked it’s usually so tender it’s easy to shred which is a perfectly good choice, but since I wanted portable, very reheatable chicken breasts, I left them intact.

  20. 140309

    …What a disaster
    18 reps rx’d C2B destroyed me.

    People can say all they want that “don’t worry…you’ll get there” but that doesn’t help. A pure disaster today!
