Thursday Workout: Backsquat and Press


5-5-5-5-5 Backsquat (same as Monday, 70 seconds between sets)

5-5-5-5-5 Shoulder Press (5 pounds heavier than last week, 75 seconds between sets, no changing weights)

Extra Credit WOD

Carry Someone to the Stop Sign and Back for Time. If a person is too heavy, carry a sandbag.

Extra Credit WODs are not for the morning class and shouldn’t be done after the last class in the evening. Do them on your own, so long as you don’t disrupt the regular class.

  1. Don’t know who that is in the picture, but I do know who has to work on his flexibility! What a contrast!

    Loaded and unloaded trailers of trash most of the day. Not for time, but it was still a good test of functional fitness – and the ability to control my gag reflex when I dropped it off at the dump!

    1. Elizabeth, can you show me some basics of POSE technique sometime?

      1. I *could* but you’d be MUCH better off asking Kyle or Chris G.! They know what they’re talking about way more than I do.

      2. But Melly, until you seek their expert advice, read this short short article:

    SP: got 155×5 first round, only x4 the second, so did two more at 138×5

    Alex and I did some of the extra credit – she carried me out and around the corner to the back entrance to the building and back, and I carried her from there around the building. Being on her back was more uncomfortable – sharp shoulders! – than carrying her, but she also carried the same weight I did!

    See you all Saturday, get those donations up!
