  1. What if….there was this ONE MAGICAL DAY in Feb 2010 that I could do double unders but since then have not been able to do a single one. Just practice for 10 minutes??

  2. So sad — 2 of my favorite things on my rest day!

  3. Thrusters: 77×2, 89×2, 99×1
    Rhiannon: 458 (PR 292)

    1. that is a mighty PR

    2. Nice work on the DUs man! Did you hurt your shoulder on the thrusters or something though?

      1. No, that’s a normal thruster for me. This is the not-so-strong-AJ that only goes in the morning, not the much stronger AJ that goes in the evening.

      2. ha you mean the super-tall-AJ who has more distance to cover with barbell lifts? killer double-unders by the way!

    3. Wow, AJ! That’s awesome!

  4. thrusters: 57#
    wod: 100 DU … a lonely little number, but did string together 3 once, and 2 a few times, both of which are PRs

  5. Thrusters: 67, 77, 89, 89, 89
    DUs: 339

  6. front squat: 89
    du: 217

  7. done at AFC…
    thrusters: 65#
    du: 315

  8. Sad to miss this one. Seriously. I’m going to have to make it up this weekend and hope that I can break my previously awesome total of 78.

    1. I made up this WOD on Saturday and got 83. Not a stellar improvement. I really could have used Elizabeth’s magical jump rope (I’m guessing she took it to the Hopper). Time to order my own. Whether or not it makes a difference remains to be seen.

  9. Thrusters: 55#
    WOD: 262 (last time – 175)
    was hoping for a bigger improvement, but I kinda went out in a blaze of glory of 42 in a row right out of the gate and got tired 🙂

  10. 133 x 5 thrusters
    424 du

  11. thrusters: 67, 77, 82, 89, 89
    du’s: conservative guess of 150

  12. Thrusters: 45# (one round of 50#, but went back down since my form is not great)
    WOD: 175 DUs – First time I’ve ever done that many but unfortunately, also my first experience with an exertion headache. OW.

  13. Kyle-

    Heading back to the ville for thanksgiving and would love to get in the box for some WoDs. I need to keep up the training through the holidays for some competitions in January. Also this is the link to our box http://www.orangecoastcrossfit.com

  14. Thrusters 89, 111, 121, 133, 133

    DU 509 – and thrashed shoulders.

  15. 133,133,143,155,155
    320

  16. 111×2, 133×2, 143 / 403 du’s

    1. Nice work bro, getting strong and fast!

  17. Did this at home. 136 DUs at four and a half minutes in and then I doubled over with the first migraine I’ve ever had! Awesome! Going to try again tomorrow…

    1. Also, no weights so I rowed 1000m instead of thrusters.

  18. Thrusters: 55#
    WOD 11 DUs… that’s a PR folks

    I know, epic 🙂

  19. Turkish get-up warm-up: fail
    thrusters: 55#
    WOD: 352

    1. I think you wrote 476 on the board

      1. yep. 476 is correct
