I like Murph, which I guess is a hero work out. Cindy would be my favorite benchmark workout. It was the first one I did back when (12 rounds, now i am up at 17 c2b). I like the simplicity of it, the scary simplicity.

Monday up in NYC at the Black Box
Southwest Regional Qualifier, WOD #1:
3 rounds for time of:
Row 500m
10 Squat Clean & Jerk (155# for men, 105# for women)
I scaled to 115#

19:41. Rough.

Being at the BlackBox just really made me appreciate the level of individual attention we get at CF 305. Really a different vibe up there.

I'm not sure I have a favorite benchmark. They are all pretty tough for me to get through. I guess it would have to be something like Grace because ground to overhead is a good movement for me.

My favorite workout period is definitely 'Magic 50' because it just rips you. There is nowhere to hide.

Murph - no question. After that, anything else without weights

On new 200 meter out and back course. Had to punch a truck on the third run. Good stuff.

I like Helen, Murph, DT, Michael...anything with power cleans, runs, pull ups.
Dislike Diane, hate Fran.
That said, working on weaknesses has become a favorite of mine as well.

Favorite benchmark WOD - None yet. Helen is pretty good. I like Fran but she hurts. Michael is getting better.

K2's vote - cindy

Murph is a benchmark workout? I thought hero workouts were not benchmark workouts. I guess anything can be a benchmark. Anybody voting for Crossfit Total? Come on K Rock and Dom!

400mtr
21 KB swings @ 2 pood
12 HSPU
3 rds

11:32 Rx

KB's 21,21,21
HSPU's 12, 6-6,3-2,2,3,2
HSPU's got real hard real fast. Something about being winded and upside down really slows down your HSPU's.
