No - I wanted to, but I don't want to injure my back. Definitely DO want to try it though. I love getting crazy looks at the gym :)

I saw on the main page comments that this had a huge impact on the forearms... where did you feel it most?

It is a good thing you didn't do this one if you were worried about you back. My back is ok now, a little sore hear and there. This WOD worried me some, I figured if it got painful I would scale or stop. So I went at it slow and deliberate,and it went pretty well.

I used the hook grip after the first set, my forearms were killing me like you read, but the hook grip helped me greatly( Thank you Richard Vanmeerbeek for introduceing me to the hook).

My back all the way up is sore in a good way. Yesterday I felt week and wobbely after the WOD, it was really interesting to do.
I saw alot of people complaining about this one on the main page comments about it being stuped and they weren't going to do it or do somthingelse. I thought it was kind of a wierd WOD but i liked it.

Nice job! I have seen many 7 or 8 rounders that did Nicole as rx'd. Nice work! I like how your number of pull-ups increase half-way through... means you were really pushing it! :highfive:

Thanks Danielle, I was in in compition with my buddy, so i was going pretty hard. The last set was the best and worst, I could barely run and i knew when I got in that I had seconds till time was up,I thought about letting time run out( like we all do) but I just wanted to get ''one more''LOL
