Took the next few days off work and will head up north later today. Went in for the 9am to get my WOD on.
- Russian Twists (30# KB)
- Flutter Kicks (x4 counts)
- 12:00 EMOTM (do both)
- 5 Thrusters (85#)
- 7 Star Jumps
- NO REST! Can start the next phase as soon as you are ready.
- 5 Rounds
- 9 Burpee Power Clean & Presses (85#)
- 7 T2B
- 5 Weighted Lunges for each leg (85#)
The thrusters weren’t as bad as expected, but the star jumps really got hard to jump in those last few minutes. I think I was completing the combo in about 21 seconds each minute. I did take a bit of rest before jumping into the next portion of the WOD. In the first two rounds I was doing the burpee power cleans one at a time, which was a waste and really sucked. In the last 3 rounds I figured out I could string them together and turn the clean and press into one motion pretty much without having to straighten my legs and then dip again. That worked better and I broke them down into 5 and 4 the rest of the way. The T2B and weighted lunges were pretty easy and like a break; all were done unbroken. My total time (with the 12:00 in there) was 30:34. Glad I went with 85# instead of the 95# Rx on this one too because it would have been hard to keep up any kind of intensity.
I walked a couple of laps around the 150m rectangle to cool down.
