Murph C2B

This Time:

54:40 with 20 lb vest and vest-to-bar pull-ups. Extremely happy with this!

Last time (somehow it has been a year since I did this full volume)

54:38 with 20 lb vest and full ROM (chin over bar)
back on August 16, 2007.

Same time with far, far better pull-ups, this is the first time I have applied the new standard, and I was worried I would not be able to do it.

Nutrition-wise, I went totally off the reservation and consumed 90 grams of carbs (.5 white sugar), 40 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat before and during the WOD. I felt good throughout, and I recovered on the last half of the final mile and was able to actually run it at about a 9:00 pace.

Really impressive performance. That is a brutal workout even without the weight vest. Holy cow!!!

max, that's awesome. i got a new PR for murph of 54:26 with no vest and only a couple of C2B pull-ups. on the positive side, those were my first C2B pull-ups, so i know i can get there eventually. it's hard to imagine adding the vest...

Thanks guys. Joe, I did this at CFO, and it seems not too many people are doing vest +c2b, just the usual suspects so far. next time it comes up, you might want to put on the vest and see if you can get 1/4 volume with vest + C2B. Basically you have to pull as hard as for a muscle-up.
