  1. 3 rounds + 4 Muscle Ups
    Bar muscle ups, 105# thrusters
    I was really glad to get the first four muscle ups in a row, because I’ve never gotten more than two in a row.

  2. Hi Dave. I wasn’t sure how to reach you but I was wondering if you still had time to make my Crossfit shirt?( If you do and please don’t feel pressured ) I would bring you a dry fit shirt that I was going to wear for the race because cotton isn’t a friend during that time. Thank you Wendy
    I will be leaving Friday Nov 2

  3. 5 rounds scaled as follows-

    Round 1, 2-4 MU’s
    3, 4, 5-2MU’s
    11-95# Thrusters
    14-toes through rings (space issues)

    Had a full minute to get one last MU but failed after taking a good breather before. Crazy WOD.

  4. 3 full rounds of:
    3 pull-up/3 ring dip per muscle-up x 4 each instead of 7
    11 thrusters-42#

    but only got to 5 toes-to-bar on the third round before time ran out, although I’m happy I was able to do the toes-to-bar. I’ve tried a few before, here and there, but always ended up going back to knee-ups. Was able to do them all today. Well, all except #6 on round 3 that I worked on trying to get for a full minute before time was up.

    Thank you for your service and sacrifice, Thomas.

    • Need to add that I used the red band for dips and blue band for pull-ups except the last batch of pull-ups I had to add the red band. My arms were toast!

  5. I would like to take a vote. I think if any part of your body bleeds during a workout automatic RX

    2 rounds plus 21 ring dip
    First attempt at even attempting a muscle up. I would like to set that as a new goal by may Though not saying what year 🙂

  6. What a WOD, my hands and shoulders are shot! I made it through 4 rounds + ring dips/pullups and 3 thrusters.

    Scaled tons becuase my body was pissed after yesterdays ring dips! All in all, I call it a success….as long as I don’t need to use my hands tomorrow!!

  7. 2 rounds & 5 pull-ups & 3 ring dips
    3 pull-ups & 3 ring dips per muscle up
    Started with the blue band then went to the red band on the pull ups. Used a red band for the ring dips.
    65# thruster

    I expected to be able to be able to move a lot faster today (I felt like a slug). My arms felt like jello all day, so that must mean something good, right?

    Great to see Matt today (I think he thinks the dark lifters are a bit crazy to be working out at that hour). For those of you looking for a class that’s less busy come to the 5:30 class! We could use the company, we’re dwindling in numbers right now. Think of how happy you’ll be when you’ve finished your workout and it’s not even light out yet.

  8. 3 rounds + 10 thrusters
    Scaled: 95# thrusters
    21 pull-ups
    21 ring dips

  9. 2 rounds + 5 assisted muscle ups scaled
    blue band assisted muscle ups
    22 hip extentions and 11push ups per round for thrusters….. stupid foot means no barbell 😦

  10. 3 rounds + 4 Thrusters Rx’d.
