Today is Change for Change! Bring in $5 if you’d like to switch up your workout for one we’ve done this month.

Strength = Front Squats (build up to WOD weight or new 5RM)

Tabata Front Squats (95/65# or 50%)

    Change for change:

    WOD: β€œMurph” (Scaled to Mini-Murph)

    800m run
    50 pullups (Blue band)
    100 pushups
    150 squats
    800m Run

    Time: 22:13

    When I last did this earlier in the month, my time was 25:32, so this is over a 3 minute PR! My runs (especially the first one) felt much faster, and I didn’t need to pause nearly as much on the pushups (my goat). I also gained time due to better positioning – I did everything under the pull-up bar, so I didn’t need to move at all to change exercises.

    Very pleased to be under 25m! Next up, full Murph! (next year thankfully)
