    A: 43kg (missed 46 two times, which would have been a PR – doh)
    B: 75kg – this was HARD!!!
    C: 7 rounds and 5 squats – almost got the 8 out…. but push ups limited my speed by round 5 or 6.
    Great morning to get back into it!

  • Ray Simonsen says:

    A) 60kg today. This is the second time I have managed this weight and it felt like I could have done more. I just have to figure out how to nail this every time.
    B) 120kg if we had time, I think I could have done more.

    C) 10 round plus 5 Sit ups.

  • Amanda C says:

    A. 25kg – up from last time and things seemed to be a lot smoother today. Took me a few attempts to get a smooth 25kg out but got there in the end.
    B. 45kg
    C. 3 rounds + 10 squats. Focused on keeping my chest up in the squats (as I tend to fall back into old habits with high rep squats).

  • Sharon Simonsen says:

    A. 35kgs, still need to work on getting under it quicker
    B. 75kgs, kept it easy due to my sore knee
    C. 6 rounds plus 3 push ups.

  • Karl Buchhorn says:

    Hit 80kg for my snatch

    150kg double back sqt

    14rds & 5 push ups for le METCON, spicy.

  • Ivan L says:

    A. 50kg and several fails at 62kg. Following the advice of Tim – “Well if your PB is 61, let’s got straight to 62.”. Seems good in theory. In hindsight, maybe fewer reps at the lower weights, then a 55kg for good measure might have seen me there. Still, got it almost overhead so it’s there. No, really it is…
    B. Must charge my phone in advance – didn’t bring it, so convinced myself that my backsquat 2RM was 110kg. Went for a PR of 112, again only to discover it’s already 120kg. And, yes Tim, you were right. I blame my memory on my age.
    C. 12 rounds and 3 squats. This one felt good. Found the right pace early so it was fast, but didn’t leave me gasping.

  • Ben M says:

    A) 67kg on the 3rd attempt PR so pretty happy with that, maybe time to try body weight.
    B) double @105, failed the second @110 not quite as good as the double @113 on Friday.
    C) Chased Karl for the metcon, 13 rounds and 8/15 squats. the man is just too fast.

  • Matt B says:

    a) 80kg!!!! Sooo pumped to finally hit that goal!!! Thanks to Bec who got me to keep my chest up, so I could nail it.

    b) 115kg

    c) I kinda estimated 10rounds…after discussions with a few others who lost count after the half way point πŸ™‚

  • Amelia says:

    A. 40kg (PR) – got this three times. it didn’t feel, or look, great so decided to stick with it. By the third time I think it was acceptable.
    B. 75kg (PR) – was pretty surprised I hit this as my 1 RM is 73kg
    C. 11 rounds and 5 push ups

  • TarrynC says:

    Haven’t trained for a week as I was off sick all of last week, I usually either come back feeling great or hit struggle town, was expecting struggle town today but was happy to feel great instead!

    A: 47.5kg! So stoked! Up from 40kg in May (failed 42.5kg then too).

    B: 72.5kg, failed second rep at 75kg. Only got 70kg and a single at 72.5kg in May, so happy with tonight’s effort.

    C: cardio part wasn’t so great after being sick, can’t remember if I got 5 or 6 rounds, but I finished the round on the buzzer.

  • Steve-o says:

    Great session today, just what I needed!
    60kg snatch, first full snatch at this weight πŸ™‚
    112kg pb by 2kg
    11 rds and 8 squats? Happy. I love sit ups.

  • Bec B says:

    A: 36kg PR by 1kg (35 was only last week) feeling so much better now my shoulders are starting to play along!
    B: 60kg double I didn’t make the 12/5 session but 60kg is my current 1rm so will need to re test that πŸ™‚
    C: 8 rounds and 5 sit-ups, push ups were slow but I was trying really hard to make them perfect. Tough little WOD though!

  • zacbax says:

    A. 70kg stoked to pick this one up! 4kg pb

    B. 130kg got 1 at 135 feel like I should have got this but I rushed it bit more rest between sets I think I could have got it still a pb though.

    C. 10 rounds and 3 situps

  • john parr says:

    A: 70kg, tried 73kg, so close yet so far (72kg is the Pr)

    B: worked to 140kg

    C: did 10rds 1 sit up

  • Gabriel says:

    A: 57kg, new PR, had a few goes at 60 with no luck but I know I have got it in me
    B: New 2RM of 105kg and 1RM of 112kg
    C: Lost count after about 6 or 7 rounds

  • Was feeling a bit sore from my physio appointment just before the session.
    A) 80kg – had to really work for this.
    B)125kg – may have been able to go slightly heavier, but it was pretty close to max for the day.
    C) 9 + 14 squats – my rubbery abs let me down on this one.
