Spend the first 10-15 minutes of class working on core strength. Exercises will be determined by your instructor.
With a continuously running clock, do one pull-up and one push up the first minute, two pull-ups and two push ups the second minute, three pull-ups and three push ups the third minute… continuing as long as you are able to complete the number within the minute time frame. When you cannot complete the required number of reps for that minute your workout is over.
Use as many sets in any order each minute as needed.
Record number of minutes successfully completed.

No ladder, but a swim WOD! I’m no swimmer, but i had a pool so I gave it a try (plus after I was done I got to reward myself by lounging poolside while looking out at the gorgeous Umbrian countryside sooooo not too shabby)

on saturday … 13 rds
13 rds + 14 pull ups + 5 pushups
10 Rounds, the last 3-4 w/ red band
5rds before my shoulder wouldn’t take anymore pullups. hopefully this will get better!
on 9/6 (realized that the stairs going to the loft bedroom in the Rome apartment are backless so I could sort of do PUs on them! And not chin-ups, either, but real strict PUs with an odd grip. This was fun and challenging)
8 full rounds rx (strict PUs… though the last 3 at the end there were more like “eye over step” instead of “chin over step”… oops. But I finished that last round with 2 seconds to spare so I didn’t even start on 9).
