    I’m sorta not looking forward to this one as I did something similar Friday and I’m still sore as hell. Ha! Went for max 1 rep of Backsquat, Jerk max 2 rep, and max 1 rep deadlift. Ladder ed up and laddered down lower weights were more reps.

  2. Vanessa Esquivel

    I love me some squats!! I did level 1 of the squat ladder WOD
    5x at 65 lbs
    5x at 75 lbs
    3x at 85 lbs
    3x at 95 lbs
    1x at 105 lbs
    1x at 115 lbs
    The 115 was a new PR for me.
    I did level 1 of the 2nd half of the WOD in 13:58 and did all of my push-ups from my feet instead of the knees this time! Also did a few pull ups at the end using the red band.

  3. BG

    Liking the prep-work for stretching.
    Level 1: 135,175,185,205,225,235….
    It’s the most I’ve done in over 5 months. Back felt really good. Worked on my form when exploding up. Tired to power through my legs and not use my back.

    WOD Level 1:
    4 Rounds For Time:
    400 M Run
    15 Push Ups
    50 Jump Rope
    felt pretty good on the run. I had a side ache at the start of the 2 round but made it happen.
    Good Monday WOD

  6. Brad L.

    Level 1 Squats:
    5 @ 135#
    5 @ 185#
    3 @ 215#
    2 @ 235# I wasn’t feeling the 3rd rep
    2 attempts of 255#. First attempt I didn’t get low enough. The last attempt was successful. New PR @ 255#!
    WOD: I went with Level 1. Finished at 11:32.

  7. Level 1 Squats with the girls weights on level 2.

    5 @ 95lb
    5 @ 135lb
    3 @ 155lb
    3 @ 185lb PR
    1 @ 205lb PR
    Failed @ 225lb

    I had it in my legs but my core isn’t sting enough to keep my chest up. I was very frustrated with that. Needless to say there are going to be some planks and hollow holds going down at my house all week. Weakness will not be tolerated.

    Level 1 WOD:


  8. Hannah Ramos

    Finished the back squats with two reps of 95. Did the level one WOD in 15 min. Max was 7 strict pull-ups using the smaller green band overhand, 5 underhand.

  9. Marcos

    Prep Work was awesome like always.

    Liked the ladder for level 2. Was happy that I got through 355. Used my nanos to switch things up. Actually felt good and focused and getting really low. Overall felt strong.

    Level 3 wod. Went strict HSPU to work in strength, was able to get them unbroken. Doubles were unbroken except for the 3rd round broke at 30ish. Total time was 11:31. Felt really good today.

    Acc. Pull ups 14 and 11. Would have not got 14 if jose wouldn’t have yelled that’s what he got.

  10. Sarah H

    This WOD got me if time mentally I truely want to cry and my eyes did water up… In squats only got 5x95ls, then 5x125lbs, got 1x 155lbs and could not get out of second rep had to bail- thinking 155lbs. Is my new PR- did level 1.5(!) 4×400 meter run, set 1- 15 push-ups and 50DU, set 2- 15 push-ups and a long struggle with DU’s thinking maybe five- then checked in with B and he said do two more mins and get what you can (sorry I said “can’t”)- set 3 ten push-ups and five knee push-ups. Got 20 DU’s Set 4 ten push-ups and five knee push-ups, wouldn’t stop tell I got 50 DU’s- 33:20

  11. Lee

    It was good day for me. I smashed my 1rm. From 185 to 235. I finished LVL 1 WOD in 11:56 and instead of regular push-ups I did ring push-ups.

    I’m 5 pds away from my 250 lb back squat goal. (I wanted to reach that goal by December) I still can’t believe how much I was able to squat. I keep checking the numbers in my head.
    WOD- Level 1 finished in 16:06. Running still a struggle for me but I keep moving.
    Pull-ups 5 forward and 5 reverse grip. Used large green band.
    Awesome Monday!!

  18. Tina

    Failed at 235 for the back squat…my 225 felt good πŸ™‚ …my mind is my own worst enemy.

    I am not sure it took somewhere around the 25 min mark.

    I have been using an abmat to do HSPU just to work back into it but I think I am ready to add plates or take the abmat away but I am kind of a baby because it hurts the top of my head.

    Double unders I feel like they are becoming Judith Arroyo quality. Marcos also made me stick with a rope so he may be on to something but I didn’t say that.

    Feels good to be back in action πŸ™‚

    And I also had an awesome partner πŸ™‚ Thanks Eterna for picking me πŸ™‚

  27. Gabe Ramos

    5 @ 85
    3 @ 95
    3 @ 105
    1 @ 115
    1 @ 135

    WOD: bum ankle so I had to modify this (500m row, 15 pushups, 50russian twists), in the process I learned how to row properly today (still not great at it, but it’s a work in progress). Finished in 24:20

  29. chela

    Back Squat Latter 95×5, 125×5,, 155×3, 185 fail:( Finished the WOD in 26:43 was getting about 25 DU in the 2 minitues allowed. Got 5 pull ups overhand and 6 pull ups underhand using the thin blue spaghetti

  30. DBG

    I like doing back squats and deads, really need to improve on them because I want bigger and stronger legs, equaling more overall strength.
    The stretching in the warmup seems beneficial. Maybe a short run might’ve helped get the blood going before Squats?
    Got 295lbs bs 1.75 times haha level 2, was hoping to do better πŸ™
    Level 2 wod 12:30. Thank you for the help on the run Brenden, hopefully I can pick that up soon. Thank you Marcos for the help with the handstand push-ups, felt I made some improvements. Was unable to do all rounds unbroken. DU’s went ok, struggled at times but was able to bust out 31 in a row one round.
    Did 16 pull-ups, thanks for the push B, and for tricking me into 16 lol
    11 underhand.

  31. Brynnen

    Got through the squats nicely at the Rx weight. Felt good. Working on keeping my back in-line and not hyperextending.
    Did level 2 for the WOD. Had to substitute 16kg KB push press for the HSPU. Little frustrating with moving backward with HSPU. A year ago I used to be able to do them from at least an Abmat, but now I’m lucky to get 1-2 a all. Finished in 23:41. Today was a mentally challenging day. Felt like external distractions were getting the best of me and I had to really focus to find a rhythm.
