Plentus, Vinny and Tim return from hiking Mt. Washington - Lions Head


St. Valentines Day Massacre
Each partner must share the work load and complete a portion of the below while the other partner continually holds a bumper plate over head. (Ladies#25/Gentlemen#45). We will scale the load overhead if necessary. If the bumper plate touches the ground at any time, each partner must complete 50 burpees. The bumper plate cannot rest on any object or body part, it must be held over head. Exercises can be completed in any order.

50 Wallballs (14/20#)
75 Kettelbell swings (35/55#)
100 Push Ups
150 Sit-Ups
200 Squats
800M Run

*Valentines, Friends and Family are welcome to come out to complete this workout.

(compare to 2.13.11 or 2.13.10 or 2.14.09 or 6.24.09) we will run this workout at all classes today.

Happy Birthday Danny!!!

Will Cupid be on hand to partner us up if we come stag today?

Peterson said...

Happy birthday Danny

Kathleen - the blind dates are some of the best workout groups!

Cline said...

@Kathleen - NO. You will be forced to do all exercise while holding your plate overhead. Good luck with the pushups and wall balls.

Mike P said...

Happy birthday Danny.

Happy Birthday Danny!!

TP, CP & Vinny, glad to see you boys are back safe. I went out in the city Saturday night and it was about 30 degrees and I almost didn's survive.

Chris P. said...

Danny! I knew you were a lover and not a hater. No one can match your intensity at the box, esp. the first 15 reps of Grace during the team workout. Happy birthday buddy!

JZ, I'll let you borrow gear for those blustery nights in Philly.

Aimee Lyons said...

Kathleen - of course!

Jason Lyons said...

Danny. I don't like you...mainly because the only thing I am still better at than you is OHS...and double unders. Despite this, I will say happy birthday.

To all men doing this WOD...if you take my class, your team will be penalized for switching the weight mid wod. A lot of guys think that this is going to be easy with 45 and finish with 15. That will be a lot of burpees at the 4:30. Just warning you to plan accordingly and put your chesticles on the shelf. xoxoxoxo

*Reminder for the night classes, this can get ugly if you do it with your significant other and then turn from massacre to armageddon.

Tim P said...

Danny Happy Bday! - It's very cool to watch your major progresses over the past year. enjoy your day!

Megs said...

Happy Birthday, Danny!! Make today your last big celebration before Sectionals.

I love this wod! :-) Keep your shoulders active and a hollow position - it helps!

Cline said...

Another tip I learned the hard way last year:

DO THE RUN FIRST!

My partner and I saved it for last, when our arms were tiredest (it's a word, honest). But it's the one leg that you can't easily switch out on (unless your spear-carrier joins you on the run). And it may or may not have led me to tell Aimee to go to hell (which is about 8 minutes into most metcons).

Great article

Mike P said...

. . . . before today it never occurred to me that 35# can be a f-ton of weight.

Lisa A. said...

Thanks for remembering those damn burpees, Cate! However, I did do an additional three when I got home, so I am currently at 8.....only 92 to go!!! (visualize Peter Griffin face down, bent arm/leg and that, uh, will be me)!LOL Happy Valentines everyone!

Jay E said...

Happy Birthday Danny!

Vinny, T & P, congrats on your climb!

Jason Lyons said...

Kate said...

Happy Birthday Danny! Hope you had a great day!

And I agree with Cline, do the run first! My partner and I made the same mistake last year and were absolutely dying. Speaking of which, anyone need a partner at 5:30?

Far be it from me to post wild consipiracy allegations on a blog's Comments section, but those could technically be any 3 people who live near an REI holding a CF KOP shirt anywhere with a touch of snow.

Just saying.
