  1. 124 Reps

    20 mins recovery on airdyne

    Finished 1 round of 14 and 8 reps into the overhead squats. Limiting factor definitely pullups, breathing kinda suck, but wasn't absolutely terrible. OHS were unbroken but got out of sync a few times and had to pause at top for a second or two. Made 85 reps on this workout in january which is 3 reps short of finishing 12's, finished 12's with about 35 seconds to go but took my time on pullups to make sure I didn't fatigue any further than I already was. I broke the pullups early to delay fatigue, but rounds went like this.

    Round 1&2 - 5+5
    Round 3 - 6+6
    Round 4 - 6+3+3
    Round 5 - 3+3+3+3+3+2

    Breathing getting better but gymnastics density type stuff still has a ways to go or anything with high reps I still get pretty killed on muscle fatigue.

  2. Did this today bum thumb and all. Basically operated with four fingers on my left hand. Didn't wrap my thumb around the bar for the OHS or the pull-ups. Not sure how much it affected things (I doubt a ton), but I did notice having to hold my wrist at an odd angle on the OHS to keep the bar overhead and I didn't have full grip strength on the pull-ups on the left hand.

    With that said....64 reps. Just wasn't fast enough on the c2b. Went 3/3/2/2 on the 10s, then 2s and 1s on the 12s. Suspect I would be in the 70s at full strength....almost got back onto the barbell to knock out some more OHS.

    For reference, in 2014, my score on this was a 28. This year, my score was 56. So knocked out 8 more c2b even with the thumb injury. Progress.

    I'm with Derek, though...just feel like I fatigue quickly on the gymnastics work.

  3. Power:

    A. Completed at 170.
    B. 245. Missed 2nd at 255. 255 is a hang clean PR though.
    Completed. For some reason I thought this would be terrible. It was not at all. Finished most in 10-15 seconds. Rope climbs in 2ish. Getting that 15ft down to one pull. One pull or one and a couple inches.

  4. POWER
    A. 155
    B. 205
    --strength felt off today
    C. Completed as rx- surprised based off strength #'s from today - averaged about 11-20 sec
