Treat me mean and cruel...

...seriously, double unders are just a punishment to me!


For time:
Row 500 meters
150 Double-unders
50 Burpees

My time: 19:29
Breaking this down, my row time was about 2:09 ish, the double unders were about 13 minutes, and the remaining time was spent on burpees, which were misery, as well. I am trying my heart out on the double unders, but they just eat me up. The only thing good about them is I occasionally get the giggles because I know how silly I look. Today I wasn't laughing though - just trying like hell to get through them.

But in every cloud there is a silver lining, right? Well, today our strength component was deadlifts, which I just love, and I reached a new 5 rep max today!


Warm up sets -
2 @ 155
5 @ 185
3 @ 195
2 @ 205

Work Sets -

2 x 5 @ 215

Time was running short so I didn't get in a third set, but I am glad I moved up to 215. Have to really concentrate on my form!

TGIF! Bring on the weekend and pass me a cold beer!!


  1. Just for the record, I DESPISE double unders.

    But I'll do me some burpees all day long.

  2. Believe it or not, the burpees were a welcome relief - the proverbial "light at the end of the tunnel", although, they are still misery in my book!

  3. Wow, nice deadlifts! You are my inspiration -- just did a 3RM of 170, and 2RM of 175, and I'm itching to do much more.

    I really need to try that WOD too. I saw it on the main page and was intrigued!
