2 Rope Climbs 


Rest 10-15 Min

These push press should be manageable but you should most likely have to break them up.


Scale GHD Sit Ups to 15 Per round if you are new.


Overhead Lunge should be with whatever you would use for Grace if you were looking to go sub 7 minutes.

I know people are doing 15.1 and 15.1A throughout the weekend and some are repeating for sure.  So, just an option for a little weekend “stroll” if you already got it done!


Team NorCal had a great time with the Open WOD yesterday.  For some reason, it made it so much more fun to have the 2 elements.  Good Luck!

EMOM 9 Min

Full Snatch 

3 Min at  70%

3 Min at 75%

3 Min at 80%

First Open of 2015 workout will be announced in TWO DAYS!!


You ready??


Vivendi Lab. Week 17. Tuesday.


Hang Snatch + 2 Overhead Squats

7 sets

Work up to as heavy as possible



10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Deadlift 1.5x bodyweight

Bench Press 1x bodyweight

Clean .75x bodyweight


Not for time:

30 Strict Handstand Push Ups



This workout can take quite a long time…for women it’s usually the bench.  If you CAN do it…go for it.  If not scale, but keep it to some challenging weights.  Fast times are around 12-13 min, but this workout has been known to take athletes 40 min.  Try to pick loads that will put you in the 20-30 min range.

    11:22,16:48,12:53. Those pull ups after yesterday’s adventure really helped turn on the suck

  2. Perry

    Severe scaling all around, but 9:13 for the 1st piece with a 95 pound bar, the 2nd had to cut it down to 10 minutes, and the 3rd was 6:45 with dips on a bench and ring rows. Worked out by myself, but had a blast! Thanks!
