  1. Aww! we shoulda done this one yesterday! I love tabata work outs.. well, I don’t think that during the workout.. Good luck everyone! =)

    1. Monique,
      Enjoyed training with you! Keep us updated on how you are doing and you’re more than welcome to post on here anytime!

  2. 326 reps + a slightly dangerous bike ride home down Slaughter Rd. Fun workout for 5:30 in the morning. Great job to everyone!

      1. I usually go the long route through the neighborhood, but decided to haul ass since it was low traffic. I only ended up in the ditch once for a school bus.

        So here’s my breakdown from this morning as best as I can remember:
        PLUPs – 51
        PSUPs – 72
        SUs – 88
        SQs – 115

  3. It felt good to be back :)….Had to take a couple days off to have my shoulder evaluated and start PT. I have to admit I was a bit overzealous this morning with some of the stuff I wanted to try. Christina had to give me a wake up call several times… I really appreciate it!! See you guys this weekend.

    sub Lunges for pullups: 82
    sub Box Jumps (12 inch) for pushups: 78
    Situps: 98
    Squats: 141
    Total- 399

  4. Sounds like a lot of fun this morning. I ran this morning, about 3.7 miles in 28 min. I plan to do some strength work after lunch today, so I won’t see you guys this afternoon.

  5. The pullup portion of this workout killed me.
    I started out hard and quickly burnt out.

    Pullups: 10 – 7 – 3 – 7 (blue-band) – 6 – 6 – 6 – 6 -> 51
    Pushups: 15 – 13 – 11 – 8 – 7 – 6 – 6 – 8 -> 74
    Situps: 10 – 9 – 8 – 7 – 7 – 7 – 7 – 8 -> 63
    Squats: 12 – 11 – 11 – 11 – 11 – 11 – 12 – 18 -> 97

    Total: 285

    Had to go to the blue-band on the pullups after the 3rd set as my rep count was getting too low.
    Need to work on gaming the tabata workouts as I kill myself the first few sets and suffer through the rest.
    You can see that I did that in the pullups and pushups. Did better on consistency with the situps and squats.

  6. Did 250 reps,but I’m in Dallas in an unfamiliar gym, had to sub in 2arm kettelbell 25-30 lb presses for pullups. There’s no place like the box!

  7. Pullups: 5-3-1-0-10 (JPU)-9-10-10
    Pushups: 11-9-7-5-6-6-5-3
    Situps: 4-7-8-6-5-4-7-8
    Squats: 13-12-12-9-10-9-11-12

    Totals: 48 + 52 + 49 + 88 = 237

    The pullup numbers don’t look great, but they’re a huge improvement over last week when I was only getting the occasional single. Dennis and Tracey held a pullup clinic last Saturday at CFHSV that clearly helped! Now to improve that PR of five linked…

  8. I did some strength work this afternoon:

    Back Squat

    Disappointed with back squat. as 325 would have only been a 5 lb PR, and I should be capable of that by now. Very happy to reach one of my goals with a 450 lb deadlift. If I can add just 5 more pounds and get underneath 250 for a squat clean (power clean PR is currently 230), then I could perform king kong as Rx’d, which would be a fun achievement. However, I obviously need to focus on back squat more than adding 5 more pounds to my deadlift. Looking forward to some high intensity WODs early next week after a weekend of rest.

  9. So here it goes:
    Pullups: 12-11-10-10-9-7-6-7
    Pushups: 12-12-8-7-6-6-6-5
    Sit-ups: 10-10-9-7-7-6-5-6
    Squats: 13-13-13-13-13-13-14-17

    Total: 303

    Was happy with this. I think if I quit going self anchor for sit-ups I could get a lot more but this is how I started months ago so not gonna change it now. I may in about another 6 months but for now I want some more workouts to come around so I can judge my progress. Enjoyed hurting through this workout and sorry David about how you felt post WOD. For you but you did good during the workout and killed it. Congrats.

  10. Rx’d 274 reps. i loved this one. i actually did this one at CF Hollywood, since i am out here on leave. Real good people and real positive energy.

    Right on to the dude doing tire flips in full fire suit and mask!!!

  11. 299. I sucked at the pull ups and after them my arms were dead for the push ups. I did okay on the sit ups and my cycling legs bailed me out on the squats.

  12. Great work by everyone on “Tabata Something Else” today. I saw many of you pushing your limits. Thanks for everyone’s patience in the 5:00 with my bizarre sick feeling. I’m not real sure what was going on with that. Pukie the clown was try to negotiate a deal with me and I just wouldn’t have it.

    I did the WOD before the 5:00 class. It went as follows:

    Pullups: 79
    Pushups: 71
    Situps: 87
    Squats: 123

    Total reps: 360

    I felt really bad after this one. I thought I was going to puke for about 15-20 minutes. I had been feeling a little upset to my stomach after lunch at Chuck Wagon BBQ today. I think that had something to do with it.

  13. David right on man… My boy Erik said it was a female and I was like “dude is universal” so right on Jordan!!!
