    Just did the WOD at CrossFit Tuluka in Buenos Aires. I’ve been here about a dozen times now. Nice place. Nice people. Interesting thing – they are sort of Kettlebell obsessed. They use them a lot. They don’t do a lot of swings, like we do. More single arm movements – cleans and presses. Often with two bells at once. I find it taxing. In a good way. 😉

    17:55- legs are still sore from Karen, so air squats were painful. Also, burpees suck.

  • Brad Hoover

    14:20 (16kg kb). Broke up the swings 30-25-15-17-13 (took 5min), squats unbroken, burpees unbroken, K2E 12-10-6-5-4-2-1.

    Annie – wow. Ya, I saw your time. You crushed it.

  • Jim S

    Wrt top 12 reasons… Number 4 for sure. I still have the competitiveness of 20 year old me but in a Vo2-challenged 48 year old body. So, with that in mind, today’s chipper was particularly awful. I completely bonked after about 40 burpees. By the k2e I was dizzy and burping in that way that says something worse might be in store. Argh.

    Anyway, Rx: 23:55

  • Amber Rodriguez

    17:33, subbed V-Ups. Wanted to avoid any hand-tearing… Lo & behold, v-ups are their own brand of excruciating.

    Happy to report my endurance is headed in the direction I want it to be going (not getting winded as quickly), and finished the KB swings @ 16kg in 3 rounds.
