One of the most surprising results from last week’s competitions came from what is possibly the best women’s region in the world, Southern California. Everyone knows the vaunted “Valley Girls” of SoCal (or if you don’t – Lindsey Valenzuela, Rebecca Voigt, and Kristan Clever), and on top of them Val Voboril only (sarcasm) adds a 3rd and 5th place Games finish to the list. In 2012 alone ALL FOUR of them finished in the top ten at the Games, and I would argue they are the most consistently dominant group of athletes, from the same region, in the history of the sport. I knew we were sending three extremely competent athletes to do battle for the SoCal spots, but I didn’t expect much success considering who they were up against.


Danielle Hale and Carlie Stone were both competitors in the Outlaw Open, and have been following the site for the last year. Jamie Hagiya was introduced to the site by her coach a few months before the Open, and was at our Regionals prep camp the week before the event. The SoCal Outlaw girls didn’t take any spots at the Games last weekend, but they damn sure tried. All three of them finished within the top eight, with Jamie and Danielle—who went back and forth all weekend—taking 5th and 6th respectively, and Carlie just behind in 8th.


Jamie was the most consistent throughout the weekend, with only one finish coming lower than 7th (12th on the OHS). When I spoke to her on Saturday morning she said, “I can’t believe this is happening, I didn’t think I’d be this close.” After our conversation she went 5th, 6th and 4th on the next three workouts, to take over control of the 5th overall position. She stuck to the slow and steady game plan, and from what I’ve been told, when she overtook Voboril in the last five feet of the walking lunges on WOD #6, it was one of the most dramatic moments of the weekend.


Danielle started her ascent up the leaderboard with a win on WOD #3 (30 Burpee Muscle-Ups), and a 4th place finish on the brutal 100s workout. The 100s WOD was actually the trios best overall finish as a group, with 4th, 5th and 7th place finishes. Carlie was nothing but consistent, with five top ten finishes. She showed her endurance by making the final WOD the only one she beat both Jamie and Danielle on, and making it her best overall finish (6th) of the weekend.


Danielle and Carlie finished 10th and 12th in the region last year, while Jamie was busy trying to play in the WNBA. I can’t wait to see what these three do next year.

  1. “The 100s WOD was actually the trios best overall finish as a group, with 4th, 5th and 7th place finishes.” <– but Outlaws can only do sub-12 minute WODs…

        • If you’re not a competitor just do the regular programming and ignore the extra work by group #. Unless you’re feeling like a mega-beast and you feel like doing the extra work. In which case, pick what you like and give me an autographed t-shirt with your likeness.

  2. 1) 245-275 failed second clean at 280.
    2a) 315
    2b) 255. Felt a little slow but ok.

    Did 5 rounds and called it. No time.


  3. Pretty new to the programming and am taking a few days off after regionals to let my hands and body heal. Does it matter where I jump back into the programming again?

    • Nope, did they let you keep the sign with your name on it the one that was on the rig. I’m going to regionals and think that would be bad ass if they did.

    2a) skipped
    2b) 275#
    Conditioning – 12:56 185# walking lunges were surprisingly the easy part. need to run more in the off season

    Skipped a few things today bc Wednesday is a gymnastic specific day at the gym for competitors. 1 hour to work those weaknesses with a great coach (front levers, skin the cats, lots of mid-line work etc….)

  23. First week starting this program and I love it, although its killing me already. I’m very very tired and my shoulders and hands are just torn up right now


    1) 185 – 205# My overhead positioning needs serious work
    2a) 275#
    2b) 245

    Made it through the lunges (had to scale to 155#; I’ve never done that heavy of lunges before) and 1 round of running/rope climbs. Stopped at 20min because I was just gassed. It could have been because it was hot, it could also have been the BACON MILKSHAKE I had at lunch… I’m not sure.

    A)Sub good mornings: 135

  24. m/34/5’8″/170lb
    1) 185-205-215-225-235 w/straps

    Lunges were brutal
    1a) 15-20-20
    1b) 20-20-20

    • Hey man, just some unrequested advice- don’t use straps on cleans, just snatches and pulls. The way you are locked onto the bar makes it really hard to dump if you catch it badly, there’s a video here that I’d watch

  25. 1) 225-245-255(1)-255(1)-245
    2A) 315 3X3
    2B) 245 3X2 (SQ CLEAN + FS)

  26. Bbg –

    1) 215,220,225,235,245

    2a) 315 Clean high pull
    2b) 275

    Cnd –

    Did 10 C2B instead of rope climbs
    Something popped in my hip on the lunges, so kinda slowed me down.

    Midline –

    Did not do hip was bothering me.
