  • I have always seemed to miss this wod in the past- so this was my first time. I wore the vest and added:

    Thanks to MarCus for “cooling down” to Karen with me this morning- 150 wall ball shots for time: 6:47

    So do I get to start at 20#? 🙂

  • Yes, but you must divide it (the 20#) and any extra weight (vest or dumbbell) by 2 since it is actually 2 people participating in the pull-up :).

    maybe I’ll just make up last Friday’s WOD since I can hardly do one at my own weight 🙁

    I’m with Laura!

  • So Mark, exactly how is Santi assisting Kristin with this? 🙂

    I wish I was there to do this one today – I didn’t even have my pull-ups when we did this the last time. Missing you guys…

    Somewhere around 41 lbs on the weighted pull-ups. A little confusion this morning with how much the vest weighed, and the little bars, bigger bars, so I just weighed myself w/ and w/o the vest…and the verdict is the bars are 1.5lbs and 2.5lbs.

  • Toni…I don’t know, I’m just being a pain in the a$$. If I didn’t act that way, I am afraid Bridget would think that I was deathly ill and try and admit me to a hospital (regular or mental).

    It is possible that pregnancy results in more blood/ability to carry oxygen. Thus it could increase the amount of work that one’s muscles could perform (kinda like EPO doping/altitude training).

  • Stacy, I know my vest (orange and black) is 40 pounds total with all of the weights in it (little finger weights). They are approximately 1 pound each. The other vest is supposed to be 45 total (all in) and the weights are 2.5 each.

    I don’t feel I should count these because I used the red band but I did
    Then went for a cool down run. Very tired today:(

  • Managed 80lbs on the weighted pull ups. Was shooting for 60 or higher so I am very happy with the results! Great Job 4:30 crew, always fun.

  • 115# weighted pull-up

    6:35 Karen

    20# vest and lots of being in awe of Kyle & Sean! Great work by the 430 class!!

    Mark-Btw the blood increase would require an increase of oxygen at ~50% in order to be as efficient as it used to be & break even…which doesn’t happen. Im actually in worse shape-not better. Thanks for always keeping it entertaining though 🙂
