  6. I did the conditioning as Rx’d but it took me forever. I was only able to get 3-4 reps at a time. Is it better to do the conditioning with the prescribed weight but slow extremely slow, or would it be better for me to scale it down and knock the conditioning portion out faster?

  7. 1: 300 with bands
    2a: 205 with ease. Tried 225 no joy.
    2b. not sure I used one inch long chains I would guess about 70-80 lbs on my shoulders for one pull up.

    Cond- Tried 155 got 5 reps on 6th rep was a complete no rep. Then debated way to long and switched to 135 and kept going with the clock running. I should have given it a couple minutes break switch to 135 and restarted. But in any event at 8k ft altitude I got 13:27.

    I’m 5’8 I weigh 150.

  26. 2/4/9 (knot in left trap putting pressure on spine… ouch)

    **one of those days I considered just sitting on the couch with a heat pad muttering to myself. instead, i found the motivation to start getting warm around 9:30 and was actually able to go through the motions and hit the movements.

    1) off 460, no bands
    2) no bench, worked up to 165# mil press (surprised to get more than the bar over my head)
    2) worked up to 65#. not even close to what I’m capable of, just wasn’t comfortable with my shoulder.

    3) 12:53 i actually lost my grip on the pull-ups … wtf?

    NO MIDLINE. no access to either one, didn’t feel like modifying. I was filled with shock and awe that i was able to get through the WOD with my shoulder + upper spine feeling the way it does.

    hopefully i wake up tomorrow and the knot is gone
