If one… I mean ONE of you complains about 12.2, I will pop out of your iPhone in a Star Trek “beam me up Scotty” way and beat the living shit out of you. Remember that Russian dude that won 12.1? Yeah… The next time you see him will be in 24,323rd on 12.2; “Sport Aerobics” (aka dancing around and doing burpees sometimes) doesn’t involve heavy-fucking-snatches.
Hmmmm… You know who should be good at snatches? I mean heavy ones, light ones, multi-rep-whatever-the-fuck ones.
If you have been following this site for any length of time you should have a WOD boner for 12.2 (yes, I just invented “WOD boner”. Fuck off, Epic). Yes, it’s a lot of reps, but at least they’re heavy.
By the way; no, the men’s/women’s scaling isn’t right. A woman will have the most reps on this one.
Strategy coming tomorrow. And… FUCK YEAH.
I saved one lady from the lifting session highlight video, so I could give her her own video. Elisabeth spent 12 hours traveling last Friday, got to the gym an hour late and PR’d on EVERYTHING.
Noah Ohlsen got a text from a certain 2011 Southeast Region winning male on Saturday night. Noah told me the unnamed male asked him if Talayna had done 190 reps on 12.1 and then burst into a ball of flames while doing some back-flips. The reality was that T had only done 118 reps, which was moderately disappointing to both of us. The reason?
She received this when about 350# of man meat came crashing down on her after a freak wave knocked the speed boat she was on sideways. We knew she had been hurt pretty good, but thought it was just general impact trauma. Nope. Broken. Full-on John Wayne level 118 Burpees with a BROKEN RIB.
You know… Burpees… Those things you literally have to fall on your rib cage to perform. In retrospect, not “moderately disappointed” at all. Now I just think she’s crazy.
