Helen is one of my all time favorite workouts. I've kept excellent records of this WOD since I started crossfitting.

Helen consists of:
3 rounds for time
400 m run
21 kettlebell swings (1 pood for women, 1.5 pood for men)
12 pullups

April 22, 2009

used 12 kg (3/4 pood) for the swings
used the big green band on pullups


August 17, 2009

Rx swings
red band for the pullups


Somehow finished all of 2010 without doing this WOD???

February 8, 2011

All Rx

12:14!! Major PR, beat my best time with a lot more weight!!
