12 Pull Ups:  Green Band

Benchmark WOD for 4-week Paleo Challenge.  Day 1 of challenge was actually 5/6/2012.  That went out the window with the Spago’s 10-course tasting menu.

1000 m Row

50 Thrusters @ 45#

30 Pull Ups:  Offset 80#


Score:  13:45


Almost did 20 Thrusters unbroken.  After that, it was partitioned into sets of 5 to 7.  Really need to learn kipping Pull Ups.  The Pull Ups have been the dealbreaker for Rx.  Can work on doing Fran and Helen as Rx if I can do Pull Ups.  Of the three, Jackie will probably be the first Rx I can conceivably do since it has the least Pull Ups.  Fran has 45, and Helen has 36.  However, they’re spread across 3 rounds, so there is a time for rest.

800 m Run

30 Squat Cleans(95/65):  75#

30 Pull Ups:  Black Band


Score:  50:49


Lost focus on last round of Squat Cleans.  Hands not always outside of knees.  On the shoulder rack, need to make sure to roll weight off grip into the shoulders.  Hold weight with fingers instead of full grip to avoid load on wrist.
