    ooohh thats a tough one…they were all awesome in their own way, but i think im gonna have to go with the CBOSS…loved the mental challenge of coming up with a game plan and attempting to stick to it

    I’ll second the CBOSS. I wanted to strangle him at the time, but refrained only because I didn’t want another 200m penalty.

    Miss Nasty J was the most challenging for me. So much variation and those darn penalties kept it…. interesting.

    I would have to say T-Pain. Even though it was a lot of body weight movements, it was very different to what we have done in the recent past. Plus it was fun to see the sick smerk of satisfaction TayTay had seeing everyone work through the pain that was his everyday life.

    I’m going with the CBoss. Firstly because at halfway through the first round I didn’t think I was going to finish. Secondly because I had some say in the name, and I am very self absorbed.

    It was my least favorite but my favorite at the same time: Teigan. I haven’t been mentally taxed like that since “Badger”. I was kinda enraged at the weight plate at the turn-around on the second 400m carry, that point of frustration with the task when you just want to say “Screw this”…but you don’t, you pick it back up and press on.

    My favorite was definitely Hail Cesar. No bodyweight movements and knowing that those 200 reps were all that was standing between me and the end of death days. Most brutal for me was Teigan. The “pregnant carries” after already taxing the lower back were brutal.

    Great feedback! I’d say the hardest for me was The “Miss Nasty J”….when I tested it while it was in its infancy. Dominated me. Be thankful you didn’t have to do that version :)

    Well, the only one I have been able to recreate in my garage this week is the C-Boss, so I’d have to say that one. Famous CrossFit last words: it looks easy on paper. It was tough wanting to drop the bar or drop off the pull up bar knowing that if you did it was 200 more meters.

    I have read over them all and I wish I could have been there, but, instead, I had to go to the beach! ; ) The sprint drills look like “fun”, The Teigan capped with the 2000+ meter row, Miss Nasty J looked… Nasty… The Hail Ceasar sans abdomiceps…They all had their own flavor and, like I said, I am sad I missed it. Maybe next year…

    Props to all Death Days Finishers.

    The worst was by far Miss Nasty J…. but my favorite was the diffrent penalties for failure. I think it should be a standard each friday, if you fail or don’t do prescribed. you do a penalty.
