Re: "Eva"

Did this one last night but never posted. This is one crazy workout and fitting for the one it is named after. Having been around since last March, there are 3 very memorable workouts before this one. My first CF workout was the hold 45# overhead and do 25 lunge steps and then Burpees. The really memorable one was the 5 round 400m, 75# SDHP x21, 75# Thrusters x21 that just destroyed me for days afterward. And the third was everyone's favorite Fran-Diane mash-up that showed OPT feeling like he got hit by a train.

And then there was Eva.

5 rounds of pure insanity. I tried doing 65# Dumbbell swings (don't own a 70#) but I couldn't keep good form so I dropped to 55# after the first round (i need to get KBs cause they are so much better). Time taken was a hellish 43:51, which was made tougher by the fact I was running laps around the school gymnasium and it was 12 laps of sheer boredom with sharp turns per 800M. And I tore a dime size callus with 10 pull-ups left to go, so now I officially have my first torn up hands from CF and it only took me 9 months and one crazy workout named Eva.

Re: "Eva"

Yet to do this - saving for the weekend when there's more panting time available afterwards. Looks a strong contender for inclusion in the 3 nastiest CF WOD list (with Linda and filthy 50 imho).

Re: "Eva"

53:13

The (subbed) rows were the easy/fast part.
Yes, ALOT of (back) pulling going on in this Eva WOD.
I too left a nice sweat angel.

Wink Re: "Eva"

I did this yesterday, and after seeing all the times posted I'm guessing I should have scaled down a bit more.
I did the 800m run on a dreadmill at 1.5 elevation,
60lb dumbell swing,
pull ups done strict (haven't gotten kipping down completely).

This evil workout took me 76:45. I was able to do 3 sets of 10 swings on the last round, but I was so completely baked that I had to rest for a minute and a half between sets. I feel like I would have been a little bit more gassed if I had scaled the weight down more but I enjoy how completely fried my muscles are today doing the heavier weight.

Nonsense! Workouts like this are good for the soul. I feel better about the efforts I give in WOD like this--those I suck at--than the ones I can dominate.

Workouts that bring you to your knees teach you something about yourself. It sounds like you had your *** handed to you yesterday, and I congratulate you on that. Nice work!

Seriously. Any morning I am expecting to wake up, check the WOD, and see the words "get wet and sandy" at the top of the workout.

Re: "Eva"

I remember that one. It took me over 40 minutes, though I'm not sure the exact time. I just remember because 40 minutes is where I always wonder if I should pull the plug.
