Yesterday was Col Skalicky’s last WOD here at Joint Strike.  Would like to with him well on his next stop! Safe travels, Col!

S/S/S:

Push Press

5X5

Increase weight ea set

WOD:

3 Rounds:

25 DB Thrusters (50/35)

15 Devil Press (50/35)

400M Run

Word of warning: your legs will be on FIRE during the Thrusters and Devil Press.  Use the run as a recover period so you can come in and hit those pieces hard!

 

Scaling Options:

DB weight -> 35/25 -> As needed

Run -> 500M Row

 

Cool Down:

Iron Cross – 10 slow and controlled per side

 

Saddle Pose* – 3 min
