    The FF option was quite enough for me today thanks very much. 100kg deads, C2B. 19:58. Phew. Still drained over an hour later. And lunchtime frisbee today for good measure.
    Please be nice to us tomorrow.

    FF with 90Kg deads, 2PU,2PU option and ring rows.
    Was timing this so I finished my 5th round at 20mins, then bloody Coach Sean said that the timer will keep going…. so I jumped on the rower and finished somewhere about 23:35?
    Happy Friday everyone 🙂

    FF with 80kg deads, ring rows /push ups and then more ring rows and a small box for the box jumps. Went through five rounds pretty quickly as I was determined to get a spot on the rower so I didn’t have to run. Made it to the rower and finished around 23.50 mins.

    Thought I could get away with just scaling the deadlifts to 100KG, but the muscle-ups brought me unstuck. I did one full one and then flopped around “fish on a hook”-style for the second so decided to drop back to jump through muscle-ups. Thankfully I taped my hands last night so the pull-ups didn’t destroy those. I got through the workout in 23:35 (1200m run instead of the row – rowers were full).

    Also very happy that my back feels great after doing deadlifts. Normally, anything 80KG+ shreds my back right up and I’m in some discomfort for a few days afterwards. Today, though, all good! Yay for getting stronger and stuff!

    FF with 90kg and C2B (except for the last round when I tore my right hand so did ring rows) – 23:30? Opted for the run (shuffle).
