[QUOTE=Ernie Guevara;779519]Good job on it nik!!! Sorry to hear your makeshift db didn't workout so well but atleast you now know what a bear complex feels like. Did your grip get tired?[/QUOTE]
Grip was a tough one. After each set my forearms werewrecked.
[QUOTE=Shane Atkinson;779531]Great job Nik. Way to push through even if it was awkward. Looking forward to seeing the video. Could use a chuckle or two.[/QUOTE]
I hope he gets it up soon. I haven't seen it either.
[QUOTE=Scott Jenkins;779545]Nice work with that damn rig Nik, we know what its like to use different kinds of equipment. I was practising the OH walk today in a small weights area just walkling backwards and forwards.[/QUOTE]

HAHAHA, we are a bunch of die hards. You stacking benches to box jumps, Ernie doing them on steps. Me and my rig.

haha, I'm going to have to have a look at this video!!
These were nasty enough, I couldn't imagine doing them with makeshift equipment.

[QUOTE=Nik Nichols;778718]"Barbara"

Five rounds, each for time of:
20 Pull-ups C2B
30 Push-ups
40 Sit-ups abmatt
50 Squats

1.3:58
2.3:55
3.4:18
4.4:11
5.4:44

on round 4 I hit nausea real bad on the situps, I didn't know if I'd have to stop to trow up. I didn't know if I'd finish or do round 5. But Round 5 was better.

Pullups unbroken c2b

pushups broke after round 1 to 10 5,5,5,5 I was hitting failure.

Situps ok till round 4.

Squats unbroken, sum sets slower then others.[/QUOTE]

Nice one mate, IMO Barbara is horrendously tough and probably one of the hardest benchmarks.

Thanks Leon, funny how BW exercizes can hurt like that.

Complete as many rounds in seven minutes as you can of:
95 pound Squat clean, 10 reps
20 Sit-ups

The standard for the sit-up is feet anchored, back of the hands touch the ground above your head on the bottom, and hands touch the anchor at the top. No Abmat.


rx'd 4round's and 10cleans

I wanted 5 rounds and missed it by the situps. Good sprint.

That WOD sounds fun, when I see it this morning I wanted to hit it, fine work Nik, 7 minutes must go real quick.

Good job Nik, you almost had those 5 rounds!!!! I bet those cleans got you breathy and the grip tired huh? How many rounds of the cleans were you able to do unbroken? My goal when I do it is to not let go of the bar. I would rather brake up the situps than the cleans. Good job bro!

It does. I was quite surprised how quick. It really is a sprint.

3rounds unbroken, last round brok at 5 for a breath and go. Grip was fine at that weight. I slowed on the cleans after 5reps that is what got me. I'd clean and drop to a hang and get a breath and go. If it would have been hang power clean it would have been way faster.
