WOD 14.5

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Well this was the final week of the Crossfit Open. Here is a link to the actual work out if you are interested.

It was basically:

21 Thrusters
21 bar facing burpees
18 thrusters
18 burpees
15 thrusters
15 burpees
12 thrusters
12 burpees
9 thrusters
9 burpees
6 thrusters
6 burpees
3 thrusters
3 burpees

This was a timed workout. No cut off limit. A thruster is basically a front rack squat and as you come up you thrust the bar over head and lock out your arms. The work out called for a 65 pound thruster. Unfortunately I was not able to get 65 pounds. I did the work out at 50 pounds.

The only requirement for the burpees was your thighs and chest had to hit the ground. And when you got up you had to jump with both feet over the bar.

My time was 37:54. Now this is not great but not horrible either. This was a very difficult work out! It kicked my butt. Especially the middle. The 15 and 12 rounds were probably the most difficult. It is however a great benchmark on where I am and where I want to go. I am planning on repeating this one again to see how I improve. I hated and loved it all at the same time! Super excited I finished it!! I came very close to puking for sure!!

If you are daring give this a shot!! I know it will challenge you!!
