I think itd be cool if you tried some crossfit benchmarks or something to see how effective the edt is, like grace or something...just a thought

That's not a bad idea, though I don't know how much it would really tell me. I say this because to be good at Crossfit, you have to do Crossfit. I have strength and conditioning in my routine, and some of it is similar to Crossfit.

On the other hand, I'm mostly always using a lot more weight than the average WOD, and strength in is a major determinant of WOD success, so maybe there's something there.

In any case, AMRAPs are more closely related to what I do than CF WODs are, so that's why I feel that's a more accurate test.

Default 6/16 tabatas

Reverse Tabata 135# HPC

10 seconds work, 20 seconds rest, 10 rounds

61 reps

I donno, this reverse tabata thing seems to make a lot of sense. It kicked my ass. More importantly, it allows for that extra little bit of recovery to come back stronger

Reverse tabata 40# dumbbell thrusters

10 seconds work, 20 seconds rest, 10 rounds

~56 reps

Tabata squats

~90 reps

Totally burnt by the time I got to this

EDT pull-ups/ring dips

Pull-ups - 45#x10x1, BWx5x2

Ring dips - 45#x10x2, BWx5x4

Not going for a PR or anything today. All I'll say is even an "easy" row is a total ball buster.

Default 6/26 C&j Edt

155x10x4

Usually I do 155x15x3, so volume was a tad lower, but density was substantially higher.

Finished off with 50 push-ups
