Nothing like a little friendly competition to get the blood moving. Friendly. Damnit.
I’m a competitive person. Call it growing up in a large family with lots of older male siblings, I don’t know. But, when the Team WoD’s come around, I show up. The gloves come off in my head, and I’m in it to push. I’m still cheering for everyone else, but I also want to be a serious Competitor.
20 reps of each equals 1 Round. The Team with the most Rounds wins.
20 Power Snatches @ 75lbs.
20 Box Jumps, 24″
20 Thrusters @ 75lbs.
20 Pull Ups (scaled to Ring Dips for yours truly)
Completed: As a team 7 total rounds. Great Team. We didn’t win, as far as I can tell. But we were not afraid to compete. PR on the Box Jumps. First time on the 24″ Also on the Snatch and Thruster. 75 lbs. is a beast. I got some reps in, but mostly as a team, we learned quick who could do what with the best efficiency and fell into line behind this unspoken strategy, supporting one another and taking up slack and sweat at each step.
