Benchmark WOD tonight. Diane.
30 Overhead Squats (Barbell)
Then… Warm-up The Deadlift
Deadlift at 125lbs. in 5:13. Scaled to Ring push ups. Quiet day today. The Warrior Dash
is Sunday and is looking ominous in my mind. Not going to lie when I say I’m very, very nervous about it. It’s moments like these when I wonder why the hell I sign up for this stuff. Ideally, around noon or so on Sunday, I’ll be wondering why I could have ever doubted signing up for such things. Fingers crossed.
II. Tabata Grasshoppers
30 Russian Swings
I. As a team of 2, build to the highest Deadlift in 25 minutes
