each arm

Bench Press x 8-10 reps

Waiter Walk x 25-yard each arm

Mountain Climbers x 30 reps (l/r equals 1 rep)

Notes:  DB row and Bench Press should be performed slow down and explode back to the top.  Use a Db/Kb for the waiter walk, only as heavy as you can maintain quality position.


3 Rounds for time:

Run 400 meters

15 Thrusters

-15 min cap-

Notes:  Prescribed is 115/75.  Newere athletes or those with mobility issues may use Dbs.



Every 2 minutes for 20 minutes, perform High Hang Clean + Clean

Notes:  Build up to heaviest possible.


For time:

Run 400 Meters

21 Strict Handstand Push-Ups

Run 400 Meters

15 Strict Handstand Push-Ups

Run 400 Meters

9 Strict Handstand Push-Ups

-15 min cap-

Notes:  This will be performd like the Muscle-Up Biathlon from the 2014 Games, complete a 200 meter penalty lap for every time you break your handstand push-ups. If you struggle with Handstand Push-Ups, scale appropriately to allow for larger sets and modify the distances of the run (e.g., 200m full lap, 100m penalty lap) so that you can still accumulate volume in the pressing and finish under the time cap. If you are strong with HSPUs, perform this as a max reps after each run…with the goal of achieving at least the number of prescribed reps in each set – note reps per round if you choose this option (this will be scored as Rx+ in wodify).

Clean and Jerk by Lauren Fisher. Take a look at her positions in slow motion during this video. And her freakish mobility!
