Ring push ups

20″ box jumps

L-sit (counting seconds)

Knees to elbows

Ring push ups can be substituted with double the number of regular push ups, L-sits can be done on two sturdy chairs, knees bent if you aren’t able to continue with the legs straight version.

If you can’t finish in less than 30 minutes, cut yourself off and note it in the comments section.

    Strong Work by Mike!

    After just a few hours sleep, Mike rolled out of bed and kicked some ASS! Nice work.

  • Craig

    I grinded to the finish! 47:47… ugh. This was tough. L-sits turned into O-sits.

    Great post today JJ!

    By the way, regarding drugs, sports and cheating: after much reading, I believe professional sports needs to take a different, if not opposite approach.

    Lets recognize and reward the “honest” atheletes. What if there was an organization that issued “I’m Clean” cards to atheletes that passed rigorous and constantly updated drug and lie-detection tests? Thus, when questioned about their performance, they could hold up their IC card. Not perfect, but certainly better than trying to hunt down the cheats.

    I agree.

    I have a similar theory for homeland security. The government should offer a special program that allows them to check people’s backgrounds and records on a regular basis. This would cost a small fee, but allow people certain benefits such as easier passage in airports, faster job application (especially for the government jobs), etc.

    People willing to do the extra work should be rewarded, not just the punish those who do wrong.

    I had to stop @ Albertsons on my way home for my post workout feeding. It was urgent too. My stomach felt like it was turning inside out after only half of the WOD. Looking forward to monday.

    Too funny Mike! The burping was a telltale sign…

    Mike, did you just quote Crash from Firefly?

    I just tried to complete fridays WOD and made it to 10 on the L-sit at 22:42 and got a call. which sucks because I could barely walk. It is way harder to do this outside the shed and by myself. I try to follow the posted WOD but I need to get back to the shed and get in shape.
