WOD: 01-06-2010

“Shredded Beef”

“Legs and hips”, all of you hear me repeat it constantly, and now I found a workout to prove my point.  Only the rare athlete will possess the arms and shoulders to complete this workout with poor technique.   Unless we throw the ball  with an explosive squat and press overhead with a solid dip drive (hip shrug) this will turn into a slow grind instead of a powerful sprint.

For time:

Wall Ball x 30

Push Press x 15

3 Rounds

Remember that tomorrow’s workout will be the same so that you can squeeze in some recovery on Wednesdays or Thursdays.  You guys have definitely earned it.

See everything we do in a workout on “Our WOD”

Going, going.........

    Why has no one commented today? Strange. Maybe because we all feel like shredded beef- nice Matt. I can’t wait to sleep in tomorrow!
    The pull up workout was really fun. I love doing new things. Wall balls are not new………they are so, so old. Really Matt, let’s just move on…………please?

      I believe we are still trying to thaw from this morning. The bed will feel wonderful from 04:30 thru 06:30 tomorrow. I agree that wall balls are old. Something new must be on the horizon to replace wall balls.

      My grandmother used to tell me and my brother, if you don’t want someone to get your goat, don’t let them know where it is tied. I think you goat could have a medicine ball hanging around its neck.

      Careful what you ask for Casey & Jim!
      I’ve helped build some of the ‘instruments’ that are on the horizon . . . . . you might find that Wall Balls aren’t so bad after all.

    Did it in 5:52 with 20# WB and 75# PP. Should have gone 95# on the PP but I’m being conservative with my shoulder.
    Intense workout. It’s been an intense week for that fact. I too look forward to a day off.

    Try to stay warm ya’ll ! ! !

    Did WOD with 45# push press and goblet squats in place of wall balls. Total time 8:02. Thanks Laura, Nikko, and Gabriel for the encouragement. Take Care, Keep warm and see you at the “ice” box.

    0500 – nice job. Only reason I’m standing in the pic is because I got a hall pass on the wod, yet still finished behind all three of you. In fact, I’m seem to be in last place on this one across the board.

    Good routine today. Liked the Seal pullup complex
