Wednesday’s WOD was no joke: Back Squats, and plenty of ’em. 100 Back Squats at 50% Body Weight, with a 5 Burpee penalty each time one had to rack the bar (I never thought I would say that 5 Burpees actually felt good). Pictured are Mike D and Tim D grinding ’em out. Several members were able to make it through without taking the penalty, including “Soccer Rob” J, “Iron Mike” R, Marianne U, and Ryan D.
Gene “The Machine” tackled a descending / ascending WOD of 165# Deadlifts and 165# Bench Press (10 Deadlifts / 1 Bench Press, 9 Deadlifts / 2 Bench Press….1 Deadlift / 10 Bench Press. Brutal. Then, to cap off the workout, “The Machine” did an alternating Tabata of Jumping Pullups / KB Sumo Deadlift High Pulls. How many 58 year old men do you know that can do one of those workouts, never mind both in one session?
