Squat Clean Ladder, Deadlifts VS. Cleans Pulls, Tuesday, 5/26/2015


Birthday WOD’s are always awesome, but you know it’s extra special if it has a poodle in a hat too.


Workout of the Day

Strength: Deadlifts 5@45%, 3@72%, 3@77%, 3@82% (10 mins)
(Use Deadlift max from 4/8)

WOD: Squat Clean Ladder! (In honor of Emily)
Starting with approximately 50%-60% of your current 1RM squat clean, perform one squat clean EMOM
for 25 mins. Once you hit your max weight, go back to the weight you began at, and start over at the
beginning. After you have gotten as high as you can on the second time through, spend the remainder
of the time working within the top 3 lifts you have completed, trying to PR or hit your heaviest weight.

*Score heaviest weight

Memorial Day Murph, Monday, 5/25/2015


Double points for smiling during the couch stretch.


Please check the schedule as we’ve eliminated many times.

Classes today will be around 90 minutes long.


Workout of the Day


Memorial Day Murph

1 mile run
100 pullups
200 pushups
300 squats
1 mile run
Wear a weight vest if you’ve got it.

Scaled = do as a team of 2 or 3.

Note:  This workout will hurt many people if they do it in it’s entirety.  We will be scaling you down to a reasonable level unless you are ready for the full amount.
If you haven’t done a workout with 80+ pullups in the last month AND 160+ pushups in the last 2 month, you should be scaling.
