    58 for me — just two pull-ups shy of completing the set of 12s. I used blue + purple bands, and did my thrusters with 63#.

    Glad it was only 7 minutes. My favorite part was the group run at the end!

  • Kendra

    Here’s an interesting article that speculates that Crossfit, at an elite level, favors the less tall athlete (i.e. under 6′ and under 200#).

    Thoughts?

    • Nathan

      totally does. just like with any sport, there are certain physical markers that come in to play. many people make jokes about that pointing to the ground to overhead movements and that it should really be ground to 7 feet and those not tall enough should once overhead have to use a box or something to get it to 7 feet. :D

    • Jack W.

      I’m not liking the quote “I believe that over time, the “tall” CrossFit athlete will slowly die off”

  • Nathan

    WOD: 58 reps Rx’d. that is 2 reps away from getting to round of 15 reps.

    Too many No Reps on C2Bs. need to really lock those in and stop wasting the energy. pull (don’t twist) the bar. keep core locked for good kipping! and no don’t flame out too quickly small sets at steady pace. I thought the limiting factor for me would be the Thrusters, but those came much easier than I expected. They should not be a limiting factor as I thought they would be. will focus on C2B skills for Saturday.

    • Nathan

      also, forgot to mention get hands wide enough to engage back and make room for chest to hit bar. pinch your shoulders back, row that bar into my chest.

  • Iris

    Just because the name Fran does not appear in the WOD description doesn’t mean it’s any better… I thought my heart was going to pop out of my chest on the pullups after the 12 thrusters!
    WOD: 53 at 53# and using blue+purple. I too thought the thrusters would be the hard part but I was way wrong. Tried moving wider as other did but that actually was even worse. Ah well I survived and at least i don’t have to do this another few times over the weekend like some of the rest of you! Good luck all.

  • Amy

    WOD: 51 at 63# and blue, red and purple bands. I had the worst time doing C2B, I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing. I def need more practice on this.

  • Rachel

    WOD: 66 at 63#, blue and purple bands.
    I knew the chest to bar would be my limiting factor. Give me thrusters any day!

    Kip the shit out of those Chest to Bar Pull Up’s ladies and gentlemen!!!! Good Luck everyone!

  • Ryan

    85 reps rxd (3-4 no reps)

    Good to do it once and feel the burn… :)

  • Mike C

    Felt like I knocked the wind out of me somehow on the first set. Don’t know how.
    On the set of nine chest-to-bar, couldn’t get the last three inches from chin-over-bar to chest-to-bar.
    30 with green band, many no-reps.

    Welcome to the newbies!

  • Jeff G

    Continuing the theme, the chest to bar was way tough for me. Did many no rep pull-ups with chin over (green band), but couldn’t figure out how to get chest to bar. Another thing to add to the list of what to work on for 13.1…Got in a good set of 9 trusters at rx’d at the end.

    On the positive, working with the group has my diet and nutrition much improved, and just feeling generally better even though it’s been less than 2 weeks.

  • Linda

    WOOO!! I CAN do chest to bar pullups:) Managed 33 Reps Rx’d. Had probably like 15 no reps on pullups toward the end. So, saturday when I start failing, I need to remember to slow down a bit more. And my grip needs to HTFU!! :)

    • Rachel

      F ing grip! my right toes feels the negative results of my grip once in a while! You got this Linda!!!!

  • Pat

    WOD: 55 Rx’d

  • Megan

    Thrusters felt really good but not so good when it came to the pull ups. Even with the band, it doesn’t help you up those last couple of inches. Thanks to Cyrus for pushing me to get those last ones up there!

    WOD: 51 w/green band

  • JD

    Don’t mean to alarm anyone, but Jeremy Kinnick did 147 on 12.5. ;)

    Elite

  • Brianna

    I did 46 reps with 53# thrusters and a green and red band for the chest to bar. I was really worried about not being able to do the thrusters at that weight, but I did them it seems.
