“I thought this was a fun workout.”
“I definitely remember this being more fun last year.”
Christmas came early this year … with a vengence. Over 50 people hit this workout Saturday morning so it required a lot of planning given the amount of gear, the movement between it, etc. In other words (as Dave put it) “utter chaos”. Thanks to everyone for booking times. It allowed us to make this run very smoothly notwithstanding that this workout can last 30 to 45 minutes depending on weight chosen, technique etc.
The WOD was:
1 Deadlift (guys: 275#; girls: 185#)
2 Ball slams (guys: 20#; girls: 16#)
3 Ring dips
5 Knees-to-Elbows (maybe Toes to Bar?)
6 Box jumps (20″)
7 Clean and jerks (guys: 95#; girls: 65#)
8 Kettlebell swings (guys: 24kg; girls: 16kg)
12 Wall ball shots (guys: 20#; girls: 14#)
The first few rounds were great … up until about the clean jerks. Then it got ugly … like lump of coal ugly.
Thanks to everyone who helped on the set up the night before (Tracy, Bish, Dixon, Kyle, Amanda, Joey, Sarah, Tim) and during the workout. Special mention to Tracy for having to work three stop watches and still having to do some fairly complex math as new heats were added. Of course, I would be extremely remiss if I didn’t thank Bish for the signage – while we did tease you for making them, they were very helpful guides during that workout.
The Teens group hit a variation of this with a “chipper” style rep scheme doing 12 reps of each exercise making for a total of 144 reps. I don’t have their times but they did hit it hard. Jeff was disappointed he didn’t get a chance to do the full one.
Here are the times:

Mike I 23:12 (Rx, Toes to Bar instead of Knees to Elbow)
Ellen L 31:02
Chris F 27:57
