I don't know how you guys can front squat so much weight!! I have trouble keeping the bar racked & staying upright....

[B]Good luck in the Masters Jeff & everyone else! GO GET IT![/B]

On another note as much as everyone posts about getting double unders - this week I had a jumprope WOD that REALLY tripped me up...
[B]I spent about 5 minutes trying to relearn SINGLE unders[/B].:rofl: One of the few things I can do with my current shoulder impingement issues, took the longest time. Fun WOD though (weights were a little low, they're trying to get us to scale UP).

3 rounds for time of:
50 singles (jump rope)
40 double unders (Sub for double unders is 40 bar hops)
30 push press - 75# (45#)
20 box jumps - 24" (20")
10 pull-ups

4/29 WOD

1 Set of Max Handstand Pushups
3 Minutes Rest
In 8 Minutes complete the following:
500 M Row
50 Double Unders
Max Pull ups
(Your score for the workout is the number of pull ups completed)

11 handstand push-ups to depth of one Abmat.
60 pull-ups (substituted 150 single-unders for 50 double-unders)

I want this to be primarily a pull-up workout, so I substituted 150 single-unders for the 50 doubles-unders, because I feared I would lose too much time on double-unders. I took it easy on my row, taking about two minutes, and my 150 single-unders (with transition between row and jump rope) took another minute, leaving me about five minutes for the pull-ups. My first set was 12, then I did with sets of five to three, stopping when the pull-ups became barely legit, ending at 60 in the five minutes. This was actually one of the easier crossfit workouts I've ever done. I suspect if I did double-unders instead of the single-unders, they would have taken more time and decreased my pull-ups, but increased my total work.

Pleased with the handstand push-ups. I've never done them before, and decided to do them with one Abmat, meaning my head came no closer than 2 inches from the floor. I was very pleased with the result, but will go head-to-floor from now on.

Today we celebrated. Evan, who is 18, and a firebreather, is leaving for the summer. He and I did Linda. He kicked my butt. My butt needed kicking! I am going to miss this kid. The good news, he gets his Level 1 in two weeks, there is a CF gym in his hometown so when he returns this fall I will have a new trainer. You da man Evan.

DL 295
Bench 170
Squat clean 115

39:11

P.S. Evan's time was 22 and change.
