071205 WEDNESDAY “Kelly”


Craig “blowing off” a little steam post Kelly this morning.



5 rounds for time:

400m run

30 box jumps (24″ box)

30 wall ball shots (20lb ball 10 ft)

Post time to comments.



Here is a recent video from Mike’s Gym (Coach Burgener’s Gym) from the American Open in Birmingham Alabama as well as some bonus training stuff at the end.

    I hate Kelly. I hate running anything over 100m (still kills my back).

    32:42 – horrible.

  • Rob

    Looks fun! And fitting commentary, JJ, given the articles on the reasons to not run! hehe.

  • Pam

    Yey! I seriously need to know about the relationship between brain size and soccer…but the link is broken. Can you send me the article at pammadix@aol.com? Cheers and hope to see you all soon. -Pam

    I did a mini kelly…15 instead of 30…I believe it was 22:34? 22 something anyway. I loved it but that friggin’ incline on the run always kills me.

  • J Jones

    (caught that one did you Rob?) heh.

    Thanks for the heads up Pam!

    Found another copy of the article on Reuters.

    just watched the video…so when do i get to snatch 145? ;]

  • J Jones

    Sakura, if you snatch 145 kilos (320 lbs) – ever, you can have a free lifetime membership to the gym.

    But a 145 lb snatch isn’t out of reach.


  • ultrasarah

    I could only do 3 rounds….20:??

  • CraigH

    Enjoyed this wod.. strangely.

    Craig 29:29
    Rick 26:01
    Sarah (3rnds) 26:01 (we understand)
    JJ 32:99 (plus 5 rounds of back stretching)

    Jon was smokin’ this one, but never looked right this morning as his stomach gave out on him after 4.5 rounds.

  • CraigH

    Wow JJ, those articles could be interpreted as an indication of your inclination toward (or, lack of affection for) running and soccer….

    We’re crushed. hehe.

  • sakura

    dude–i could totally snatch 145 kilos!!! no faith?! and i’ll take you up on the lifetime membership.

    yeah, i know it said kilos–i can’t imagine lifting all that weight! one day i could attempt something in the 100’s–i can’t wait!!

    and the barrientos family sends out their prayers to jon’s family.
