Work to a Max Bench

WOD

15 Minute AMRAP of

KB Swings (70/53) & Rowing

  1. BP: 350 (PR +10)

    WOD (with Greg)
    Row – 326 cal
    KB Swings – 220 (53#)

    Total: 546

    1. Tony you were awesome with the KBs – good work!

    2. 250 on the bench, not 350. Maybe if I was Ian…

  2. BP: 122 (PR)
    WOD (with Margaret): 341 Rx, although a few of my swings wouldn’t have qualified for Rx, I’m sure. Thanks to Margaret for her hard work and thanks to Kyle for giving me the push to try the Rx weight!

    1. Why can’t we have a like/badass feature on this? Seriously, seeing people like my on-ramp partner Sam and all the ladies from Monday PR lifts and workouts inspires the rest of us to push that much harder. I wish I actually deserved half the credit my WOD partner gave me today…

      1. Thanks, Tony. I’m pleased about the 53#, but we really wouldn’t have done nearly so well if Margaret hadn’t cranked so hard on the rowing.

  3. bench: up to 104 multiple reps (resting shoulders a bit)
    WOD: 356 with Courtney (welcome, Courtney!) @45#KB

  4. Bench: 185
    WOD w/ Andy: 358 total
    Seth: 77kb swings rx, 94 cal

  5. bench: 220# pr by 20

  6. BP: 90#
    WOD: 341 with Sam
    – row: 186 calories
    – kb swings: 64 (45#)

    First time using the 45# kb was pretty darn rough. Luckily Sam was a beast on her 53# swings!

  7. BP: 85# (4# less than my 1 rep max. Failed on 95#/ran out of time. Definitely trying this again on Saturday.)
    WOD: 391 w/ Lydia (146 calories + 145 KB swings, 35# KB)

    Thanks for essentially carrying me through that workout, Lydia!

    1. pff whatever! I forgot to mention how I threw the kettlebell in anger after it flipped around and whacked me at the top of my swing. Good times.

      1. Ouch! I was oblivious to the Lydia Rage moment, but I came very close to hurling my KB as my hands got sweatier…

      2. Feel the anger use the dark side if the force.

    2. Just realized I said 145 for the KB swings. Should be 245.

  8. BP: 75# (+3 from old PR)
    WOD: what Lex said

  9. BP: 130# (PR +9#)
    WOD: 100 KBS @45# + 111 calories + Jeremy = 467 total

    WoD: I did 130 kbs @35. 170ish on the row carried by Ronnie. No idea on his kbs.

  12. BP: 72
    WOD: with Monica
    me: 65 calories + 156 kb (35# russian swings) = 221

    Jason modified this WOD for me to be a recovery WOD:

    Russian swings tabata at 53# (between 10 and 8 reps each interval)

    WOD: 216- I worked alone. 126 swings @ 35#, 90 Cals
