Here is the VIDEO of Josh and I doing the workout.
1st round unbroken. 2nd round unbroken except pullups 6/4 3rd round broken thrusters 2/3 pullups swings unbroken
Not super pleased with my performance. Shouldn't have rested so much in between sets, but at the time it sure felt like the right thing to do. We did a live webcast from California of the competition on Skype with Jerrod, Jake and Lisa who are in Virginia. After video review we realized Josh only did 14 KB swings in the first round. That is technically a DNQ, but oh well its just for fun. In choosing the wods for the competition I we each submitted 3 wods and sent them to Metric and TexasPatrick (from Brand X's forum) who were kind enough to provide excellent guidance.
The weight on the thrusters were: Josh 102.5lbs Jake 102.5lbs Lisa 75lbs Jerrod 155lbs
