W.O.D. 3.23.15

Christine gets on the leader board with 130 on the PRESS!

The Lyons Press Medley 

 Shoulder Press-Push Press-Push Jerk 

 Keeping a barbell in your hands throughout the sequence of the 3 movements, perform 3 reps of Shoulder Press, 3 reps of Push Press and 3 reps of Push Jerks prior to re-racking the barbell.

You will add weight to the barbell based on your level and ability. Perform the same sequence (3SP/3PP/3PJ) and re-rack. You will continue to increase the weight on the bar and the weight will eventually get to the point you cannot perform the Shoulder Press. At this point continue the Press Medley with only the Push Press and Push Jerk (3PP/3PJ). When the weight gets too heavy that you you fail on the Push Press you will continue the Press Medley with Push Jerks (3 reps) only. Record the top weight for each lift to Total WOD.

Prior to starting this workout each athlete will need to stand against the wall and measure and mark their foot line for the handstand push-ups (details to the left). At the call of “3-2-1 … go,” the athlete will kick up into a handstand and perform handstand push-ups. Once 3 handstand push-up reps are complete they will move to the barbell for 3 cleans, then back to the wall for 6 handstand push-ups, then 3 cleans, etc. Each round, the number of repetitions of the handstand push-ups will increase by 3. After every 3 rounds, the number of clean reps will increase by 3. Athletes will continue following this pattern for as many reps as possible within the 8 minutes.
Your score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 8-minute time cap.

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 8 minutes of:
10 push presses
10 cleans

On March 23, 2003, Master Sergeant Michael Maltz, a U.S. Air Force PJ (Para-rescue) was killed in action in a helicopter crash along with 5 of his brother PJ's while attempting a rescue mission of injured/sick children in the mountains of Afghanistan. MSGT Maltz is the late brother of Derrick Maltz, Special Agent in Charge of SOD. According to those who were close to him, MSGT Maltz possessed an enormous amount of strength and stamina. Bearing this in mind, a workout was specifically developed that would be particularly challenging in honor of him.

The 9th Annual MALTZ CHALLENGE is being held today by DEA Offices around the world in honor of MSGT Maltz and others who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our country, we at CrossFit King of Prussia will honor Master Sergeant Michael Maltz by completing this WOD in his honor. Bearing this in mind, this workout was specifically developed that would be particularly challenging in honor of him.
