Lift big, move fast! That’s the motto today baby, we start with the most complicated lifts in the books. It is high risk high reward though, nothings better than hitting a perfect snatch if you know what I mean! After that its on to one of the funner “girls” Diane is fast and fun. A great mixture of weightlifting and gymnastics.

Man you guys are missing out on some badass wods and times on Saturdays! What do you think we are closed or something!?!? Well this one was so fun I almost jumped into it after I wrote it on the bored…. Anyways this is another great test with the skill strategically placed by me at the end. Can you complete 5 quick unbroken handstand push ups after you burned your shoulders up a little bit and have your heart rate jacked? This is a skill you should strive to posses. You’d be surprised at how hard double unders are mid or end wod, try after one!

Teams!

Posted: January 26, 2013 in WODs

In teams of two complete:
800m run
21-15-9
Deadlift 185/135
Box jumps 24/20

Partner A starts at the barbell, B at the box. Partner B must hold the push up position with feet on the box only then can partner A complete their dead lifts. After 21 partner A hold the barbell at the top of the Deadlift while partner B completes box jumps. Then back and forth until completed. I love team wods!

And great job to my elements girls you pushed hard today y’all are almost ready! Keep up the work and keep working on that nutrition.

Today was more mental than physical! You had to know and believe that you could do it. All of you can move for this many reps without putting it down. We always say the mind will break before the body does so prove it today, don’t let that bar win…. Oh and if you don’t do it unbroken rest as long as you need because your starting over at zero 😉 have fun!
