They guard those like gold. No way they share them freely.

They guy may have just paced better to get those reps, I went out too fast and crashed 5 rounds in.

I am telling you after a trial run at both that the average guy that is going to get time capped, snatch will have him going too slow on the burpees. The C and J was nice as it kept the rhythm the same for 15 minutes.

he won’t listen. He has two speeds: go fast. And lay down.


I have a lot of gears that involve lots and lots of sweating and cursing and leaning on things.

I went in to it planning to do RX and after watching a few other people do it, talked myself into going scaled at 65# and stepping over the bar. Time capped in the 9th round. Snatched the weight unbroken the whole workout but the burpees just killed me. By round 6 they were getting realllly slow. I’m glad I didn’t try RX now. Being 6’-3” didn’t help.

That describes a lot of people.

I am typically one of the ones that starts out slow, but not on purpose. Evidently, it takes me a long time to get loose. I take pride when I get to run down the skinnies at the end of the workout.

I am just poking fun , I am full of crap most of the time. Sometimes in CF it is hard not to scheme for the best score versus do the workout with as much intensity as possible.

I am one that believes that work over time is the way to go, and that normally coincides with a higher score or whatever. But sometimes it is a great training idea to go out hard and try to hold on as long as you can.

Was going to say the same because of "arse to grass", but then I remembered how many movements have a full squat in it

We have been working on a bunch of squat cleans and toes to bars lately. I wonder if they give the affiliate owners a bit of a heads up.

I like it

My DUs are trash.. I’ll be lucky to hit 24 reps in 2 sets.

I’m good on the thrusters and TTB, but wasting energy on DUs will make the other movements struggle.

I can do 24 no problem unless I just totally frick up

I pulled out an old Rx Smartgear rope and after 5 min I packed it up.

Heavy as shite and it’ll hurt like hell 5 min in when I’m whipping myself to death.

13Rx (442) this morning.

Actually really enjoyed it and for the first time feel like I held back too long. Unbroken thrusters and dubs the whole way (aside from frick ups) and 3-3 TTB from the beginning. Went unbroken everything the last 3 rounds. Feel like I could do 15, but not enough to try again

I love this one, but I am too damn sick to do it. Started the steroid/anti-biotic thing yesterday. Not sure if Monday is enough time to feel good enough.
