HAPPY BIRTHDAY DONKEY!!!

W.O.D. 1.17.11


TEAM FRAN

Weight for the Thruster is 65#=Ladies, 95#=Men
Pull-up- Chin MUST be above the bar

Teams of 4 will complete the following:
200 Barbell Thrusters
200 Pull-ups

essentially...
50 Thrusters for each person on the team
50 Pull-ups for each person on the team

Each individual must contribute to the total, but does not have to complete exactly 50 per person.

The team will hold the bar and a "human rack" will be created for each team mate to use.

The bar for the Thruster cannot touch the ground, if it does a penalty (of 50 Thrusters) will be assessed.

The weight for the team will be determined by a weight that everyone on the team is capable of and can complete full Range of Motion (ROM) with.

(compare to 3.20.10)

Plentus said...

Donkey, what a bad@$$! You raise the intensity of not only the WOD, but also the general atmosphere by making people excited about this stuff. I think you're the only person that won't get any complaints for doing birthday burpees tonight b/c you're so cool. Happy birthday!

Happy Birthday. Your yelling is always appreciated when I'm at the end of a WOD!

-Chris (and Lindsey says Happy Birthday too)

Ellie said...

Happy Birthday to one of the funniest (and most fun) people I know. You have a way of being so hardcore (with that no nonsense attitude), but also nurturing and caring. It's a delicate balance that not many people can pull off... wishing you a wonderful birthday!

Jerry said...

Stephanie Vincent said...

OK nutrition geeks i have a questions....

Should i be attempting to loosely zone along with my primal diet (ie eat a balance of protien/carbs/fat at meals) I am starting to feel hungry all the time. I am starting to be concerned that i am not eating enough...to support me. I am having a hard time getting out of the 3 meal a day mind set..but i cannot get enough whole foods into me that way...i think i really have to focus on 6 meals...and thinking a zone balance might be good.

thoughts??

Kristin T. said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DONKEY! It has been great getting to know you and I hope we hang out more! Have a great day!

Jason Lyons said...

i think of it as zaleo. zoning real foods. they talk about this at certs so i personally would try to zone the foods you eat and of course bump the fat up if you need more energy based on our lifestyles.

Kimberly L said...

Donkey, If : you suck" means AKA Your AWSOME!!!!" Then you suck, big time....Have a great day doing what ever puts a smile on your face.

Donkey, you're one of the people who got me really excited about the KOP community when I was just starting and didn't know many people. I always remember the workout with push jerks where you finished early then came over and re-cleaned my bar to the rack after each set so I could bail it and not have to pick it up. You give so much to our community and all your friends, between the music playlists, reading our fortune cards, waking us for the eclipse at 2am, the list never ends! Happy birthday.
