    Knees towards elbows
    Burpees, very slow
    Deadlift, 175 (RX)
    KBS, 55 (RX)
    Pullups with my blue band

  3. This absolutely kicked my ass. Lets just say that I finished the damn thing!

    Thanks Amy for not letting me quit! I wanted to. I was the last to finish at 47:47, but getting done is good enough for me!

    Crossfit is not easy, but I love it!

    1. Good job, Daniel! If I had been there, I would have been the last to finish. I’m planning to do this one at open gym tonight and off the clock. Just so it doesn’t make me cry.

  4. Thrusters @ 85
    DL @ 155
    Everything else RX
    Handstand push ups all unbroken- other than that this workout was a mental test, now Jessie’s not the only one who’s cried at the gym, love you sister;)

    Very impressive 830 group- and Pat you were so awesome, you are so strong it’s insane!!!

    1. I’ve cried at the gym. Several times, including during the Filthy Fifty on my fiftieth birthday, although that time it wasn’t just crying. It was actual sobbing.

    2. I’ve cried. I try to keep it to a quiet whimper, but it has happened on occasion. Sometimes the choice is either quit or cry & keep going. Good job passing the mental test.

  5. Glad to have gotten this out of the way in the morning! Took it light and rested a lot, so it wasn’t as brutal as it is intended, but it was an awesome workout.

    No inversion for pregos, so subbed 45# shoulder presses
    75# thrusters
    155# DL
    55# KBS

    32:48

      1. Jessica, you totally rocked your pregnancy! And btw, I can relate on how hard it is to come back. WAY harder than I ever expected. I thought without the baby weight it would be a breeze, but I underestimated how much having a baby impacts everything. Take it slow and don’t be too hard on yourself. It took me a full year to even get close to whrer I was pre-baby. And then I got pregnant again!!

  6. Oh Amy. I was crying too! I’m so glad I’m not alone. This was brutal. I’m still exhausted.
    Time = 39:30
    HSPU almost all unbroken except for one break in last 2 sets – getting ready for Saturday!
    Thrusters @ 65#
    K2E were all unbroken! Love the kip Emily taught me – makes a world of difference.
    DL @ 175# then 155# last few sets
    KBS @ 35#
    Pull-ups: worked on that butterfly – definitely saves some strength I think.

  7. Whew! I thought I’d come back and start where Ieft off pre-pregnancy or even during pregnancy. Boy, was I WRONG!

    41:50, Pike Pushup, 45# Thrusters, Knees toward elbows, 85# DL, 25# KBS, purple band pullups

    Oh, and burpees…..OUCH!!!

  8. Joey, Steve, Harold, David and the whole crew all cried after this one a few weeks back, but then we hugged and expressed our emotions over some tea, went shopping and felt so much better!!!!

  9. “seven” Rx…brutal wod! Didn’t cry but I threw up right after I called time…33:30. This is one of 3 wods that has caused me to puke:-). Great way to start the day…wrecked. I love crossfit!

  10. 6PM did this a bit differently. 40 sec limit per movement. Got 277 reps at 95# thrusters, 55# KB and 205# DLs. Had to skip the last 2 DL rounds bc my back was failing me. Killer WOD. Loved it now that it is over.

  11. Great job to those who came in and invested their time, strength, & will in a very challenging WOD today…whether it was for time or for reps (“Sevens Gone Bad” style for you 4-5-6 o’clockers) it was a mental & physical test you will not soon forget. (personally, my next 2 days were total “rest” days after this) Outstanding work everyone!! 🙂

  12. Late to the blog party, but did this at 6 am…box/pike HPSUs, 60# thrusters, 125# DLs, 35# KBs…hard hard hard. 40:36. Awesome work, everyone!
