Thursday 100527


Snatch Balance

3 x 5


"Fight Gone Bad"

3 rounds for time of:

1 minute wall ball, 20#/14#

1 minute sumo deadlift high-pull, 75#/45#

1 minute box jumps, 20"/18"

1 minute push press, 75#/45#

1 minute row (calories)

The clock runs for the entire round. On the call of "rotate", athletes move to the next station as quickly as possible. One point is given for each rep, except for the row which is scored for total calories. There is 1 minute of rest between each round.


Katie L. goes overhead!

There have been a lot of PRs in the box lately, and it's great. But how about the not-so-great days? Has it happened to you yet? You come in and things don't go as planned. You don't lift the weight you planned to, your legs feel especially heavy during a run, or you just can't get through a set unbroken. You're out of your groove. It happens. We're simply not going to blow it up every single day. We won't PR every time we pick up a bar. It can be because we're sore from a previous WOD, because we got a lousy night of sleep, because our nutrition was off, or sometimes there's no good reason. So how do you deal with it? Will it get to you for the rest of the day? Will it carry into the next day's WOD? If it does, will it inspire you to greatness or will it get in your head, lead to you doubting yourself, and result in another less-than stellar performance? It's up to you how you deal with it. Remember, we're not just making our bodies stronger, use it to your advantage!

  3. Definitely having an off week, starting with falling off a box during a warm up Monday morning 🙂 Lack of sleep and drinking alcohol is sure to be the cause. No worries though, it happens.
    Nice work John! It can be hard to keep working out while on the road. Sounds like you’re having fun.

  4. I’m sorry I missed the AM FGBers! Excited for you afternoon folks though, this is a classic WOD!
