I did 18.4 scaled at Aspire when I was training on my own and finished the first ladder and managed 5 reps at 185# before the time cap (95 total reps).  I am excited to repeat this workout and hope to complete the first 50' bear crawl under the cap.  My hamstrings are still a little tight, but I do feel substantially recovered.  I would like to attempt it Rx as well and would work on 225# singles for 9 minutes.  Even at 1 rep every 15 seconds, I would finish in just over 5 minutes and I cannot perform a handstand push-up.

I crushed this workout!  After warming up, I took some time to set up the camera and measure off the 25' for bear crawl.  Janet was kind enough to judge me and I promptly got started at 3..2..1..Go!

Deadlift 135# - 8/7/6 *(0:52)*, HRPU 5/5/5/4/2
Deadlift 135# - 8/5/2 *(2:47)*,HRPU 4/3/3/3/2
Deadlift 135# - 5/4 *(4:15)*, HRPU 3/3/3
Deadlift 185# - singles *(7:43)*, Bear Crawl 50' (finished the bear crawl with about 11 seconds to go)
Deadlift 185# - singles 1/1

That is a total of 123 reps which absolutely crushed my 18.4 score, I completed the same amount of work as 18.4 at 5:40 (1:20 faster or 20% faster).  I was able to continue cruising through the 185# deadlifts and met my goal of finishing one bear crawl, plus got a bonus couple of reps in the last 11 seconds before the time cap.

Coaching cue, Janet suggested staying on the bar even if I need extended rest between reps.

I considered getting back on the 225# today to post an Rx score, but based on discussion with Janet, decided to wait until Monday.

I wore Nike Metcon 4, Knee Sleeves and a weight belt.

My hamstrings felt ok, but my right pec was still feeling the strain of yesterdays HRPU.
