    Front squat: 135 x 5
    WOD: 3 + 37 kta
    I didn’t want to scale the dubs but instead they ended up taking me forever. On a brighter note, I have now been able to link my dubs 4-5 and a time, then singles, then singles/dubs, then a few linked again. Finally getting there!

    Front Squat: 145 x 5, 155 x 3…chest dropped on this set and i got stuck at the bottom of number 4, Next time.
    WOD: 6 + 38 (50 singles and t2b)

    Front squat: 205×5 – last couple of reps weren’t pretty but a new 5-rep max nonetheless!
    WOD: 4 + 13 with 10 dubs each round. Dubs seem to be getting worse for me. Need to buckle down and start going to Open Gym and practicing them…and also buy my own rope.
    Cash Out: This was evil. My abs are still in VERY rough shape after “Barbara”. Not to mention the friction burn from all of the sit ups. Then the core already burnt out from the T2B. Hollow rocks have never been this difficult and sloppy…
    Hope to see everyone tomorrow night!

    185 x 5, 205 x 4. was a little nervous about the knee, but felt pretty good. front squats are my #1 goat.
    7+36 Rx. TTB disappeared in the 5th round.

    It’s official whenever I do high volume dubs my knee swells, anyone else have this issue?

    265×5 probably had a little more in there
    8 probably didn’t have anymore in there

      Marc, when you jump rope your entire foot should make contact with the floor. If you are jumping from the toes only you put a ton of stress on the quads which puts pressure on the knees. My suggestion would be to roll your quads, but more specifically grinding a lacrosse ball on the area right above your knee. Then again, your calf, and hamstrings tie in and around the knee too which could be pulling the joint out of alignment. Solution = roll everything.

        Thanks, Chris

          it sounds like he’s just blowing you off with the “roll everything” but he’s always right when it comes to this shtuff! thanx retta, now i gotta go “ROLL EVERYTHING!”

    Front squat 165×5 195×3 x3 215×1
    I tweaked my right wrist last week. It was uncomfortable during the cleans yesterday but straight up painful today. On the positive side it forced me to rack the bar deeper and use my hands for balance only.
    WOD 4 rounds and change. L1.5 single single dub attempt until 30 singles or 3 dubs. Which ever came fist.
    Cash out completed.

    STR: 215 lb. x 5 (can go heavier next time)
    WOD: 5 + 30 Rx (palm rip on each hand slowed me down, thanks to the 100 pullups on Wednesday)

    7+1 Rx
