Strength – Push Jerk – 5 reps x 3 sets @ 60%

This is a new one. We will allow each class to decide which workout will be performed. It will be through secret ballot, so no one has to know which one you voted for. Will all the classes choose the same one??

Wall Balls
Reverse Burpees

OR

“Death by Wall Balls”
Do 2 wall-balls the first minute, 4 wall-balls the second minute, 6 on the third… Continue as long as possible. Fraction sets if necessary. Men use 20 lbs ball, ladies use 14 lbs.

    Strength: Push Jerk @ 60% = 55# (felt light)
    5 x 35 bar WU
    3 x 55# – 3 x 55# (then realized I had the reps and rounds backwards) – 5 x 55 # – 5 x 55#

    WOD: “Death by Wallballs” (10# @ 10″ – was going to go for 12#, but the yellow one was deformed and gave me only no reps when practicing. Next time, beat BJ to the 12# ball!)

    Total reps: 87
    (I had miscounted and given the wrong amount to Steph! Oops! I got to 15 wallballs out of the round for 18. Just to clarify!)

    Push Jerk 5 x (#55-70-70-70)

    Push Jerk @ 60#

    Death by wall balls with 12# (first time with this weight and many reps were only at about 8′–Kevin suggested going back to 10# to increase height)

    10 reps at round of 14…so 52 wall balls?

    25 of Alaina’s no show burpees.

  15. Was early for the Oly class so Kevin invited me to join Death By Wallballs in the 3rd round and I agreed for reasons unknown……made it to 9 of the round of 18 = 75 reps

    Oly class

    Partner warm up

    Push Jerks 5 sets of 5 @ 150#

  17. Heidi

    Seems like most classes voted for the death by wall balls……crazy kids! Wasn’t my vote, but I got stuck with the too, by a really close vote.

    Death by wall balls with 14# @ 10′
    14+12 = 66 reps

    1. Heidi

      Just checked my score from 2012 on this WOD and it was exactly the same.
      Note for comparison when this one comes up again – I used the big Dynamex ball

  18. Hannah

    M+WUx3 (6 reps)
    Group m+wu

    Push jerk x5
    3 sets @ 60% (=60lb)

    WOD: “Death By Wall Balls”
    EMOTM, add two reps every minute.
    10′, 10lb.

    A few notes to future self: don’t be stupid; pace wisely…got 11 when I needed 12 because of an illogical and ill-timed break that I didn’t need.
    Also, use the smaller harder balls…haven’t smashed myself in the face with one of those yet. -.-
