    I think death by cleans is 1 min 1 rep 2 min 2 rep….. 6 min 6 rep etc until fail. Looking for a PR on Helen.

    That’s exactly what it is. Any time you see a death by, it’s in that fashion. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rounds aren’t too bad, it’s round 14 that killed me last time. Oh to have that hair again…

    Oooo Karen! I tried to rx this right after I started doing unassisted pull ups. I got to the last 5 or 6 pull ups and had to use a band. Not today!!

    that hairstyle left the first time I shaved my head. Only half of it grew back.

    Love that picture! Have to brag that I took it!!! I’ve known y’all a LONG time!

    I got to round 10 with 65# before I died.

    I blame my added minute on my Helen time on that. 18:57 using a 35# kb and blue/purple assisted pull-ups.

    BUT, I was THERE and I did ALL the work! (Some days you have to look at it like that!)

    Love the hair Clayton and the smile! 🙂 And Amber you look exactly the same….young and beautiful! Both of you…young and beautiful!

    Got 10rds at 85#’s death by cleans!
    14:17 w/ 45# kb, red & blue bands then moved to a grn & red. I am progressing in everything but pullups!!!! Urrggggg!!!

    Emily was inspiring with her beautiful butterfly pullups this morning!!! Maybe in a year or so! 🙂

    This one was a heartbreaker, 15:36 and RX’d everything but the last nine pull ups. I felt my arms were Jell-O. Next time Im just going to do like one every thirty seconds so I can RX the whole thing. Just made six rounds at 135# for the skill.

    Skill – 9rds w/103#. Got 7 reps in rd 10 just couldn’t finish it out.

    WOD – 12:01 rx

    And Jason, next time I will get a 45# bar and just assume when he says “ladies get a 15# or 33# bar”, he’s not including me in that statement. Lol

    I’m a little late to this party but I got 6 rounds plus 4 cleans RX

    Then 7:47 on Helen, RX. beat my last time by about 9 seconds. but I did it quicker at the old gym. Probably bc it’s a different run course
