Gymnation Challenge 2013 - Crossfit

Recommended Posts

Hey people
I'm Ryan from my garage gym.  Caught a glimpse of this challenge some where amongst the posts on facebook so thought I would give it a jam.  Toes to bars let me down big time.
 
 
Body weight: 81.7kg
Thruster weight 45kg
Time: 4:00 = 240sec
 
240-(10x30.3255)= -63.255 points
 
If you watch carefully you can see me smash my chin in the bar on the last pull up of round two.
 
Cheers

Yeah think so, usually they arn't too bad, but was having an off day on them.  I'm blaming the ghd sit ups on the weekend.  Could maybe up the thruster a few kgs just to get that edge.  Will see how the rest of the week pans out and might fit anouther try in.

Had another attempt with 50Kg thrusters with a time of 3:40. (score -134). Got home and watched video, only did 9 pull ups in first round. No Rep. #$%@.

Oh well, hope noone overtakes my first attempt.

That sucks oxx.  Just had a go with 60kg thrusters and it went terrible.  First round was done in 1min flat.  Second round was going good until I dropped the thrusters and the weights went straight through the deck.  Got the weights unstuck and carried on, but the extra weight had taken its toll on my muscles and lungs and by the time I struggled through the last round I ended up with a score of -14.  Too finish it off I threw up in the garden.

Oh, bugger, Oxxx! Not that you needed to shave that time down any further... :P

Ryan, that is awesome. That shows true dedication to smash up your deck and keep going anyway! That's hilarious - did you get it on camera?! (Uh, I mean, "I'm really sorry to hear about your deck...")

Yeah just renting this place so gonna have to fix up the deck, but shouldn't be too hard, just chuck down some new planks.

Been meaning to build a proper lifting platform, but havent gotten around to it yet.  Really I have just been to lazy to borrow a trailer and go pick up some plywood.

Hey Pseudonym, Got your private message, but can't figure out how to reply to you? I'm not usually this technologically challenged (I work in IT).
