  4. 8 rounds + 5 HSPUs rxd

    Ugh...1 legged squats messed me up! HSPUs & pullups ended up being rest. Surprisingly all HSPU & pullup sets were unbroken but the squats were SLOW with a lot of rest between...

    6am seems to grow every morning & we continue too bust a$$! We even had a celebrity join this am, Kyle "the ox" Kasperbauer made an appearance & easily smashed everyone including me, for him it's business as usual...

  6. 5 rounds plus 2 handstand holds and 4 presses @77#

    I did 2 handstand holds and 5 presses in place of HSPU's. I got a couple kipping HSPU's in warm ups, but I also missed when I couldn't keep my feet on the wall so it was recommended I do the above.

    I didn't have to scale the pistols though I had a few that I lost my balance and had to do over.

    Pullups were 8/7 first round and 3 sets of 5 after that. These felt pretty good in that I didn't have to drop below sets of 5 which I've sometimes struggled with.

    First 2 rounds of presses were with 53# and the rest were all at 77#.

    Great work once again 6 a.m.!!

  8. Advice - DO NOT take a break from the Gym for more than a few days! ;-)

    4 Rnds plus 3HSPUs and 2 presses at 110# and 1 PU.

    Kipped my HSPUs but struggled with keeping the legs on the wall with a few. Pistols are a Pistol for me.....something to add to workouts on the road!

    Re-entry is a killer. Cool having Kyle in class today! Great job 6amers!

  12. Happy birthday, Shelley!

    I guess I have to confront these weaknesses of mine tomorrow. HSPU and pistols all at once? We'd damn well better deadlift on Friday to make me feel better.

    4 rounds of 10 years on this earth, and I have to say the last round has been the most fun!!! I'm looking forward to many more!!

  22. 7 full rounds. I thought pistols would be the worst (and they were pretty tough) but pretty much every exercise was pretty tough by the end.

    I had to use a 15# dumbbell to keep my balance while doing the pistols. This really tired out my shoulders.

    I'm off to sunny Cali today until Tuesday so I will see you all next Wednesday!

  24. Almost forgot to post my results. I fell 10 pull-ups short of 5 rounds, doing HSPU negatives (3), Pistols (green band), and Pull-Ups (purple band). I really wanted to finish that 5th round, but I wasted a lot of time trying to balance against the wall... add HSPU to the list of things I really need to work on.
  25. Stacie Says:
  26. 8 Rds + 10 pistols
    HSPU-pink and tan bands. All pull ups were butterfly. Getting better!

Thanks For Visiting!
