Buyin’ In

Buying in is easy.  Wait in line, put down your cash, and get your chips.  Our buy-in for Wednesday’s workout is pretty easy too, run.  But just like pulling up a chair at the big table, this game requires a high degree of skill to be successful.  You’re going to need pretty much every one of the ten components of fitness to play at these high stakes and pull down a big pot.

Bad poker analogies aside, we’re testing all of your skills with this one.  The AMRAP format and ascending rep scheme makes it a great chance to try out the handstand push-ups you’ve been working on, go heavy with the squat cleans, or both.  Run fast, then see what you can do with these technical movements.

  1. HPS: 29kg
    WOD: 4 rounds 25kg and HSPU with 2 abmats. this was first attempt at HSPU… didn’t do much except bend my elbows and then straighten them…probably will revert back to ring push ups until I get more shoulder strength 🙂

  2. HPS: 52kg
    WOD: 4 rounds even – doing wall climbs and 60kg on squat clean.

    Good to be back after a week in Cali.

  3. HPS: 50kg. 55 for 1 after a couple failures
    WOD: 2+5 rx (3 sqt clean failures short of 3 rounds).
    I’m liking these heavy WODs
