3 Rounds for Reps:
1 Minute Max Cal Row
1 Minute Rest
1 Minute Max Dumbbell Thrusters
1 Minute Rest
1 Minute Forearm Plank
1 Minute Rest
Row hard! Load the Thrusters heavy enough so that you’ll probably need to break up them up into at least 2 or 3 sets. Scaling for the Forearm Plank is a Tall plank. Keep your butt, belly, and quads tight and your hips between your knees and shoulders for the entire minute. Pay attention upstream as well and don’t let your head drop.

12 Labours Annapolis
25 bar facing burpees

16:12 Rx. This felt similar to Thur metcon. Legs felt dead on the 800 and last 400 run. Also accidentally missed the turn around on the first run and probably ran closer to 550m.
Partner AMRAP 20:
10/5 Cals Assault Bike
10 Snychronized C2B
15 Synchronized Abmat Situps
20 Synchronized Air Squats
***add 5 calories to the bike every round***
***1 person working at a time on the bike, everything else is synchronized***
450 reps Rx. Assualt bike sucks. Makes you want to row. Partner with another drop in, broke up C2B into 5's and split the cals on the bike. This was a bit boring.

front squats 105x12x3
Still having knee pain issues
Wod with 25 # db because knee..
99 reps… Plus 180 plank reps according to McD
Best row was 20 cals which is a PR
9am with Melissa and McDowell
Partnered with Michael A on the front squats perf style. 175# for sets across. Moved quickly throughout. Nothing got too sticky.
WOD with green KBs since there were no 50# DBs in 608.
KB Thrusters 9/10/7 keeping these in an awkward front rack was the limiter here.
Planks unbroken with some impressive shakes.
Extra credit with Michael hitting some legless rope climbs and then GHDs with some added weight on the last set.
Squeezed a lot into an hour today!
James A says
8am and glad I wasn't with BK this morning.
Front squats 175# 3×12 so glad next week is dropping in reps.
WOD is a lot more difficult then it reads on paper.

Hit a globo gym today and did the programming
These volume days are rough, especially with the FS gingerly cutting off your breathing for what feels like an eternity!
(Reason #1 why I hate globo gyms, "Hey bra, you done with that squat rack yet? No? Ok, we'll just stand here and wait until you are")
Snatch width deadlifts
225x3x5 (with wraps because god forbid you use chalk in a globo gym… Reason #2)
Single Arm KB Clean and Jerk 32kg: 10 each round
(Reason #3, someone tried to steal my rower… twice!)
(Reason #4, I couldn't find a dumbbell anywhere on the rack where they are supposed to be put away)
Good day all in all though.

10 a.m. w/MeLo & McDowell.
FSQ: 145x12x3. Actually moved a little better than last week. Still glad to see sets of 12 go.
Metcon: Row 29/25/25, Thrusters 11/10/10 @ 45#, Planks… mediocre. Getting the movement of my hips to go independent from my lower back is tough when exhausted.
A/R thereafter, in which the comic range-of-motion limitations of my lower extremities were revealed and worked on.
Cash-out: sitting at home with a protein shake blasting "The Beautiful Ones" out my window.

Front squats: 175x12x3
WOD modified to do one-arm DB presses.
First time front squatting since wrist surgery and was surprised at how good I felt. No wrist problems and my hands did not go numb.
Thrusters 25lb DB 15/15/16
