  1. Can’t make the morning session today. I’ll be in this evening.

    • You’re not gonna like it

  2. Row: 6
    Squat: 15
    Pull-ups: 5
    Push-ups: 10
    Sit-ups: 14

    Total: 50

    First two sets of squats were 24, but that was unsustainable. By the time I hit push-ups I learned it made more sense to pace myself than to burn through the first couple of sets.

    • Awesome!!!!

  3. row: 8 cal
    squats: 15
    pull-ups: 6
    push-ups: 6
    sit-ups: 11
    total; 46

  4. I do like tabatas although they can be frustrating. Especially disappointed I had to go to modified push ups which I was going to stop doing. Pull ups with new & old red. Situps anchored.

    row: 4 cal
    squats: 16
    pull-ups: 4
    push-ups: 4
    sit-ups: 10
    total: 38

  5. row: 5
    squats: 14
    pullups: 5
    pushups: 7
    situps: 15

    I agree with Mike, I killed myself on the first round of squats (27) but then couldn’t keep up the pace…thanks to Aaron and Mike for helping me get the last few rounds of pushups and situps!

  6. Row 7
    Squat 13
    Pull up 6
    Push up 10
    Sit up 10
    Total 46
    If I paced myself on the push ups I think I could have done more by round 8

  7. Total: 32

    Wow, not a great effort. Pullups and pushups were the surprise there. I think I dropped to 4 per round on those. Should have worked the squats and situps harder to make up for it.

  8. Row: 6/5/5/5/5/5/5/5
    Squat: 17/16/12/11/11/9/10/11
    Pullup: 6/5/5/5/5/5/5/5 (red+tiny)
    Pushup: 8/4/4/3/3/3/3/3 (all in plank)
    Situp: 10/9/8/8/7/7/7/7 (abmat, butterfly)

    Lowest Scores: 5,9,5,3,7=29 😦

    This was my first time doing this workout. No where to go from here but up.

    • What’s a butterfly sit up?

      • unanchored with legs splayed instead of knees up. I can get better range of motion this way; my tummy gets in the way otherwise. 😉

    • why the sad face? that’s a solid performance!

    • Way to go Pat!

  9. Row 5 (?)
    Squats 14 (128)
    Pullups 5 (57)
    Pushups 7 (77)
    Situps 8 (~78)

    numbers in () are total reps, if known and I managed to write them down

    Total Score: 39

    I’m not sure if it was not working out for 6 days, old age, or something else, but this sucked

    5 Rounds For Time (On a continuously running clock):
    30 Double Unders
    20 Pull Ups
    10 Push Jerks (135#)
    *Rest 1 minute between rounds

    End of Round 1 – 02:53
    Round 2 – 07:31 (3:38)
    Round 3 – 13:02 (4:36)
    Round 4 – 18:36 (4:29)
    Round 5 – 23:07 (3:31)

    **Once again my rounds got faster at the finish line…I MUST find a way to sprint in my middle rounds. Closing strong is cool, but not if I sacrifice so much time in the meat of the WOD.

    • Still — some nice times, man!

      • Thanks Mike, I just have to find a way to get faster…but hey, don’t we all? 🙂

    • those times show you maintained serious intensity throughout…i’m just gonna start calling you “speedy” from now on & see if that helps 🙂
      nice work D

  11. This was pretty exhausting.
    Pull up-6
    Push up-5
    Sit up-12

  12. Row: 5
    Squat: 15
    Pull-ups: 5
    Push-ups: 10
    Sit-ups: 11

    Total: 41

  13. I don’t have my notes with me now, but the total was 33 and I LOVE this workout!

  14. Made this up the following day at globo gym while out of town. There was no rower, so I did the first tabata on the treadmill and counted calories. Pull-ups sucked once my hands got sweaty because they had no chalk so I just did 5 for each round rather than the full 20 seconds. Finally, I lost count and accidentally did 9 rounds of squats and pull-ups! But alas, here are my results

    Cal from running: 6/7/7/7/8/7/8/8
    Squats: 20/20/20/19/19/19/18/19/18 (1 extra round)
    Pull-ups: 10/7/8/5/5/5/5/5/5 (1 extra round)
    Push-ups: 12/9/9/9/9/9/9/9
    Sit-ups: 14/13/12/12/11/10/10/9/9

    Total: 6+18+5+9+9=47

  15. michael and i discussed just going for it each time, damn the pacing and gaming of this one…

    row: 8-6-7-6-4-4-4-5 = 44
    squat: 21-18-16-15-13-12-10-8 = 113
    pull-up: 15-8-8-8-6-5-6-5 = 61
    push-up: 16-10-10-7-7-7-6-7 = 70
    sit-up: 16-11-11-10-10-8-7-8 = 81


    4 + 8 + 5 + 6 + 7 = 30

    kind of still disapointing even though was putting up good numbers in rounds 1 and 2. need to work on sleeping more and eating better, drinking less coffee all day long and more water… that 10 second rest needs to get longer too.

  16. […] Compare to 100217. […]
