Kyle’s daily info 8/30/2012
My weight this morning was 240lbs.
5,000 lbs (m)/3,000 lbs (w) Ground to Overhead*
*In the first part of the workout, the athlete will choose one weight and then do the corresponding number of reps to reach either 5,000 or 3,000 lbs (3,000/1,500 scaled). For example, if a male athlete chooses to lift 135 lbs, they will need to complete 38 reps of ground to overhead to reach the 5,000 lb limit. Likewise, a female lifting 95 lbs would need to complete 32 reps to reach 3,000 lbs. Choose wisely and scale accordingly. Once the ground to overhead reps are completed you will immediately move into the pull-up/burpee portion of the WOD
For the WOD I chose to do the weight scheme mentioned in the paragraph above (135x38) thinking this would be a manageable weight to do to get through the WOD. This WOD was a pain in the ass. Holy shit. I love lifting weights but repetition like that always burns me out. After doing my reps I moved immediately on to the pull-ups and burpees. All in all this WOD stomped a mud hole in my ass and then proceeded to walk it dry and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I came home feeling like hell, made Rochelle and I some delicious breakfast and now…off to work.
