5 rounds:

Max # of push-ups + 10
Max # of pull-ups + 5
Max # of barbell presses (75 lbs) + 5
50 sit-ups

Perform the maximum # of repetitions that you can without stopping. Once you have stopped (i.e. can’t push off the ground for a push-up), rest 30 seconds and perform the additional # for that exercise. This is for all 5 rounds.

Sharon’s demonstrating a nice degree of shoulder flexibility. She’s almost to the CrossFit gold standard: hand touching hand.

7/12/06 WOD

Technique Day

Today we focused on three specific movements for the entire hour:

Kipping Pull-Up
Rope Climb
Bench Press

Dawn_First_Pull-Up.jpg

Congratulations to Dawn on getting hir first pull-up! This was actually the last of several pull-ups she got today.

Unfortunately the lighting on the photo is poor (operator error!). I’ll just have to snap another one of her in action the next time she’s in.

Tabata Squats
50 Double-Unders (or 250 Single Skips)
25 Shoulder presses w/ dumbbells
25 Push presses w/ dumbbells
25 Thrusters w/ dumbbells
50 Sit-ups
15 Burpees

Burpees are with a push-up and a clap at the top of the jump.

Score is calculated by dividing the time it takes you to complete the circuit (the time for Tabata squats does not count) by your Tabata squat score. There’s no rest between the Tabata squats and the double-unders (in other words, the stopwatch for the circuit starts immediately after the Tabata squats are completed).
