Packing for vacation….homemade rings and a sandbag carcass (to be filled and left in South Carolina)

Here is the Holiday Schedule for the latter part of next week through New Years. Please check it over so you don’t show up disappointed.  Remember lots of options on the vacation WOD link if you are traveling or can’t make class.  Time priority (20-30min) Up ladders (1,2,3…….) tend to work best from a motivational standpoint when you are on your own. Plus the warm-up is sort of built in too.  Remember just because it may not be “for time” doesn’t mean it’s ineffective.

Sylvie & John admiring Steve’s KB Snatch.

30 Mins Teams of 4 – Station Circuit

Pacer: 0-10min = 400m Row 10-20min = 400m Ski 20-30min = 3 Lap Gimme

  • Max Rep Toes to bar > Plate sit-ups > Standard sit-ups
  • Max Rep Muscle-ups > L-pull-ups > DH pull-ups > Ring rows
  • Max Rep KB Santch > Single Arm Swing

Good Workout. Lots of movement variation based on ability…Nice to see folks not taking the Max reps so seriously that they MOD back to move faster. Challenging your current ability level is key and that will always result in less reps. But without that challenge, there is no progression.

In honor of USAF SSgt Timothy P. Davis, 28, who was killed on Feburary, 20 2009 when his vehicle was struck by an IED.

RX= 155/105# ……Alternative 2@ 70/44# KB’s
MOD= Modify weight to something you can Jerk or Push Press safely… but it should be heavier for you.

*It goes without saying for every WOD but especially with this one….you need to use your brain and manage work/rest effectively. This # can get heavy and make sure you are set up well before you pick the bar back up. Prioritize good movement, then weight then time.

Amrap 15…Modify weight to something you can  Push Press safely… but it should be heavy.

2 Flat Loops
