Ray Roman - Thruster WOD (10/23/14)

by Ray Roman in , , ,


This WOD was inspired by Pat Barber and Wes Piatt from a video of their workout posted on CrossFit.com | Checkout that video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiyrDMhszUc

Below is the instructions for the WOD:

With a continuously running clock complete 5 thrusters every minute.

From 0:00-5:00 use 75lbs.
From 5:00-10:00 use 95lbs.
From 10:00-15:00 use 115lbs.

Continue adding 20lbs. every 5 minutes for as long as you are able.

I completed 75 total thrusters in 15 minutes. This was fun, I look forward to doing it again in the future!


Ray Roman (10/12/14 Sunday WOD)

by Ray Roman in , , ,


I’ve been doing this workout in variation 3 times now over the past 2 months. My last time was 12:43. This time I got 12:18 — a little bit faster but I was completely out of gas by the 2nd round. I skipped breakfast and did this WOD right in the middle of the day -- I'm thinking the empty stomach, and 80 degree weather might have been the problem! Trying to get under 10 minutes on this at some point. Until next time…

2 Rounds For Time (my time was 12:18):

1st round - 20 kettlebell swings (35lbs), 40ft dumbbell lunges (35lbs), 20 box jumps at 24”, 20 clean and jerks (135lbs).

2nd round - 10 kettlebell swings (50lbs), 40ft dumbbell lunges (50lbs), 10 box jumps at 24”, 10 clean and jerks (150lbs).

I love video editing and I enjoy working out daily, so occasionally I put together videos of my workouts on Instagram @RaymondRoman. Creating these quick 15 second videos for Instagram is fun, and also a good way to look back at progress I make overtime. Checkout some of the recent videos below!
