Someone told me that that all WOD's are pre-tested by our leaders? Who did this killer and how long did it take and did you do it in the sun? And how many of the pitiful uninitiated looked at you funny? Sounds very tough.
I think I'd rather run a marathon.

Pamela MacElree said...

Yes, we do test out the workouts as well as several variations of them.

This one was a variation that we did but I don't remember the time, will have to do it tomorrow and will post the time for you.

They stared more strangely when we did fireman carries.

Zercher Walk?

Erik said...

I think all WOD's should be pretested with Cathy, then scaled for the Group Session! All in favor, say "Aye"

Boo hiss on that idea. Unless you Erik will be the male guinea pig. Actually in the 5 years I've been training with Jason I always think I've seen it all (tabatas, ladders)and then some more awful combination comes along like burpees followed by jump squats followed by mountain climbers followed by (well you get my drift) then repeat for 20 minutes.
Perhaps it's the evil alliance of J and P that has led to this.

Pamela MacElree said...

Cathy, I'll do them with you.

Jay, for the zercher position hold the sandbag or tool at chest level and support it between your upper arm and forearm. We did this at the ECKB Conference.

Erik, be careful what you volunteer people for.

Erik said...

Yeah Pam, you're right--I might be on the receiving end of it one day. I should have known better.

Oh well, how can I learn from my mistakes if I don't make them? :)

See y'all tonight!

Very true Erik, but the comedic relief is great too.

My time on this WOD 18:00 minutes with the 40lb sandbag.
