Workout of the Day: Monday 5-20-2013

Warm up before class: Run 1200m, mobility


Group Warm up: 5:00 instructors choice


SKILL: Prowler pushes. Complete 5 x 40 meter pushes. (180/90# added to sled)


WOD: This is a special request from our member Joe Hayes who served with Corporal Ryan C. McGhee

“McGhee” AMRAP 20:00 (30:00 for elite wodcrushers)

  • 275 pound Deadlift, 5 reps (275/175)
  • 13 Push-ups
  • 9 Box jumps (24/20″)

Notes: If you did the 11a Saturday WOD with deadlifts, please use this day as a rest day or work on other skills! If 275 or 175 is over 65-70% of your 1RM you need to scale this WOD, the volume is too much. The actual WOD is a 30 minute AMRAP… which we believe is counter productive to health and fitness so it has been shortened to 20:00. If you want to do the 30:00 version that is fine but we won’t ask it.

Scaling groups: scaled DL as needed, no more than 70% of 1RM.
