HSC @ 35#

Curious about something: in a WOD where it's for time, is the theory that you work towards more rounds and then add weight, or increase weight and then maintain/increase rounds?

Whew, that was smoker...

as rx'd: 11

I admit that I quit after the last round. I had 35 seconds left, but I didn't have an additional 35 seconds worth of mental will.

Max said...

Nine rounds as Rx'd.

That was absolutely miserable. I wanted to quit after one round, but it took me about a minute, so anyway, the other nineteen minutes sucked.

Glad to see Upty is cracking the whip on the morning crew!!

I took time for good form and deep squats...and coaching Shannon..both took some time. But I made up for it by doing ring pulls instead of bar pulls. Don't ask me why I asked for that little place in hell....

7 rounds w/ Ring Pull-ups

Meg: The CF progression is the same regardless of whether the workout is for time OR is for as many rounds as possible:

1-Finish the workout, no matter how long it takes

2-Work up till you can do it as proscribed

3-Then increase one of the variables (speed, #of reps, or weight) to add intensity.

So...for today's WOD, you'd go for as many rounds you can do, as proscribed, then add intensity in the form of more weight, or ring dips, or wearing a weight vest.
