Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 12 minutes of:
150 Wall balls
Women’s Rx Wall Ball: 14lbs to 9′ target
Men’s Rx Wall Ball: 20lbs to 10′ target
For folks not competing in the Open, here are some additional ways we’ll be scaling this workout:
- Wall Ball: 150 Reps, scaling Wall Ball weight primarily and height secondarily. You should scale so that you get through the Wall Balls before the 12 minute cap.
- Double Unders: 60 Attempts or 4x Singles (360 Reps). Individual skill level may vary this.
- Muscle-Ups: 3 C2B Pull-Ups and 5 Push-Ups = 1 Muscle-Up

This intense new novel follows a middle-aged man as he contends with a past he has never much thought about—until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance, one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony Webster thought he’d left all this behind as he built a life for himself, and by now his marriage and family and career have fallen into an amicable divorce and retirement. But he is then presented with a mysterious legacy that obliges him to reconsider a variety of things he thought he’d understood all along, and to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world.
A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single sitting, with stunning psychological and emotional depth and sophistication, The Sense of an Ending is a brilliant new chapter in Julian Barnes’s oeuvre.
