    after yesterday’s debacle of a performance (I hate cleans), it was good to get something in my wheelhouse. I like tabata anything, even if modified. Steve and I teamed up and he recorded our performance so hopefully he’ll post. Interesting that the extra ten seconds of rest didn’t really help my numbers much

      yea Brad I think the 10 sec “rest” was a mental thing to make you THINK you were getting rest….cause really it was enough time to take a few breaths and uncontract your muscles for a couple of seconds and then it was time to go again!
      was tough but I will say that I didn’t stop at all except for towards the end of the squat and push up rounds….and they were super small “stops” 🙂

    uber dehydrated when I showed up. My feet were cramping during front squats and never stopped. Holy electrolyte imbalance Batman!

    Front Squat: 165, 205, 225 (fail)

    WOD: Pushups 11
    Row 5 (still my kryptonite)
    Squat 15
    Sit up 9 (hips and feet cramped at this point not fun)

    Garret was a heck of a partner. He pushed me the whole way.

      man, if you show up dehydrated to an evening session, I can only imagine what it’s like after. “Hip cramps”…wow. Never heard that

    Btw – looking unlikely for me at the metro dash. Looks like I will be traveling a few weeks
