So if you don't have a med ball for the med ball clean, and you're trying to do this work out, what would you do instead?

Aimee Lyons said...

Han-the mind is an amazing thing right!?! Nice work on 95!
Laura-you could use dumbells or a barbell for the cleans. Or sub squats if you are at home and not at a gym.

use a bowling ball or get a basketball and cut a slit in it and fill it with sand and then duct tape it back together.

I believe you could have done more than 95. Next time!

Everytime you miss a crossfit workout, god kills a kitten. Please think of the kittens.

Jill-I'm considering going to the regional qualifier. But I'm on the fence still :-)

Wow Jason that's involved solution for med ball cleans. I can't make class tonight so I was contemplating trying to do the workout on my own...I'll let you know if I find a basketball, sand, and try the duct tape. You forgot to remind me about the water in my trunk too to bring in for everyone, so now its all frozen!

I never got back to KOP today, so I did this from home, and I got to use my new Dynamax ball.

Max Push-Ups: 44

4 complete rounds plus 10 burpees in 20 minutes.

1000 Meter Sprint Row: 4:59

For max push ups, I did the most that I could do in one set resting only momentarily in the up position. I stopped when I dropped and could not immediately push back up again. Is that right?

I probably could have gotten 5 rounds in with a little peer pressure. I was really focusing on the med ball clean form, so that slowed me down a bit. A great fast home workout though.

I may see if I can drag my ass out of bed in the AM. If not, then I will probably be in Friday.

Dude, burpees and situps had to be deadly with that vest. Nice job.

I did a modified version of today's WOD at FAC - in case anyone saw me in the window. I used the heaviest med ball they had, which was 5kg, which is only 11 lbs.

I got 7 full rounds, and then 10 burpees and 15 medball cleans. And didn't do the max pushups - its hard and unmotivating to work out by yourself!
