(11AM) Ashley, Richelle, Tom, Bill, Steve B, Craig, Ben, Luke and me
2 rounds of 40 sec ON, 20 sec REST of Ball Slams (15#), Hang from Bar, Low bounding box jumps (12”), one other thing?, Pistols/Squats holding onto rack. Then 1 speed round with 40 sec ON of each with no rest.
2 Rounds for time: 40 Hang Power Cleans 75/55#, 80 Air Squats, Run 1 mile
This was a long workout. I considered going Rx, but opted to drop down to 65#. The weight was not supposed to be heavy, but I still found myself dropping the bar every 10 repetitions. The Air Squats were a grind as well, I broke them down into sets of 20. Finally the mile run was down and up the hill heading East to the first driveway and back. It took between a little over 2 minutes for each round of Hang Power Cleans, 3 minutes for each set of Air Squats and around 12 minutes for each mile run. Overall, I finished in 34:41 and was just glad to be done. I paced myself pretty well. I also ended up drilling a hole in my right thumb and will make a point of taping it up the next time we have a high repetition set of cleans.
I was surprised at how quickly some folks were knocking out this WOD. Times were as low as 20 minutes.
Finished with mobility on calves hooking the foot onto band and rolling a barbell under the belly of the calf from a variety of angles.
