Hardest WOD You've Ever Done

I did this one the other day when I just felt like smashing myself into the ground...Needless to say it sucked and was one of the hardest ones I have ever done...:

500 m row
20 burpees
40 Deadlifts (bodyweight)
20 burpees
30 Ball slams (50)
20 burpees
20 Back squats (bodyweight)
20 burpees
10 Squat cleans (bodyweight)
20 burpees
100 Double unders

Wondering if anyone else out there can recall a WOD they'll never forget...and will never do again

Re: Hardest WOD You've Ever Done

Did this one the other day:

400 doubleunders

5x
6 30" burpee box jumps
6 135lb clean and jerks
12 ghd Situps

2000m row

32:58. Wont forget that one any time soon.

Also a while back I did
50/50
40/40
30/30
20/20
10/10

of Burpees and GHD Situps.

That sucked.

I rarely go to that long of a time domain, so when I do I make it pretty horrible.

Re: Hardest WOD You've Ever Done

I found the hero wod WHITTEN to be a challenging one and sticks out in my head. There are heavier, harder and more skillful wod's around, sure, but that particular one on that day had me beat. Did it about 1 year ago and it's still pretty fresh in my mind.
After 3 rounds I'd had enough ..... and there's 5 f'in rounds of it. I think the mixed desire of wanting to quit and wanting to finish is what made it tough. It was definitely a test of wills. I finished, but didn't break any records in doing so.

I can't say that I'd never do it again though - or say that about any of the workouts really.

Re: Hardest WOD You've Ever Done

not that I've done it, but I've done a team version.

Kalsu
On the minute:
Complete 5 burpees and perform max rep 135 lbs thrusters on the minute.

The goal is to complete 100 total thrusters.

Whiten and Kalsu do suck... And amazingly I was fortunate enough to try me both this past month! Deadly....

Kalsu also gets my vote. I scaled to 75 lb thrusters and 75 reps, still the most brutal 24 minutes of crossfit I've experienced. I was only 3 months in at the time, but my opinion of that WOD has not changed with time.

Re: Hardest WOD You've Ever Done

Have done this one....

2000m row, every minute on minute, hop off and do 5 thrusters(95) then back on rower. One of worst things i've ever done and have been in crossfit since 2005

Re: Hardest WOD You've Ever Done

one of the rougher ones I've done...

100 Burpees
100 pullups
75 Burpees
75 Pushups
50 burpees
100 air squats
25 Burpees

All these WODs suck, no doubt, but...."It wouldn't be fun if it was easy"

Re: Hardest WOD You've Ever Done

I'm going to have to give Kalsu a go again. I did it almost 2 years ago at 95lbs and it was an awful 21 minutes. I think I can do it now sub 20 with 115lbs with smarter scaling. 135lbs and 15 minutes or so like I have seen some people do is just insane...
