    From the CrossFit Brand X forums on how to approach this workout:
    Big Dawgs and Pack:
    As Rxโ€šร„รดd
    This workout is self scaling.
    I recommend:
    You sub some beginner pull ups in here. If you can do a few standard full range pull ups, do those to failure and then add in some beginner Pull ups to keep going. If you cannot do any full range pull ups try this with beginner pull ups or if you have an assist machine or bands try the workout with that.
    The Brand X record for this WOD is held by Top Dawg, 27 rounds.
    ***Use as many sets each minute as needed = each round does not have to be a continuous single set. You may break up the number required for each minute into as many sets as you like as long as you finish before the minute is up.

    Are there any local spots to buy weightlifting shoes? I found some places online, but I would rather try them on. Jersery and BK are valid options.

  • michelle

    Eight rounds bloody hands.

  • Tony T

    10 rounds + 7 pullups. Had to use the band after round 7.

  • Carlo, no, you cannot buy WL shoes locally. They would have to be ordered online. What size are you by the way, I have a pair I’m willing to sell?

  • Tripp

    As Rx’d: 17 rounds (33,33)
    Brian – if Carlo doesn’t take you up on that offer I think I’m probably a 9 or 9 1/2 if they follow running shoe sizing! And, by the way, when are you back? I need the power of the dot!

  • carlo

    Brian, I’m the same size as trip. Tripp you can go get em if the shoe fits, maybe you can just let me try them on ๐Ÿ™‚
