Ray Roman – Thruster WOD (10/23/14)

October 24, 2014

This WOD was inspired by Pat Barber and Wes Piatt from a video of their workout posted on Checkout that video at

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 “0 to 100″ Failed (10/15/14 Deadlift)

October 15, 2014

Working on a 1 rep max deadlift tonight. 405lbs is my 1 rep max deadlift as of September 2014. It’s crazy what a difference 5lbs can be! Tonight I failed but it’s all a part of the process, or should I say progress?

Ray Roman (10/12/14 Sunday WOD)

October 12, 2014

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…
