Two sprint rounds of:
400 meter run carrying a 20lb. medicine ball
50 wall ball throws to a ten foot target (use your 20lb. medicine ball)
This was the WOD that Greg Amundson completed with members of the Royal Norwegian Force Protection Unit on June 26, 2012, just outside Olso, Norway. The WOD was done in both individual competition and teams of two. If done as a team, divide the work as deemed necessary. Each Athlete must complete at least 10 repetitions at each station and may pass the ball back and forth during the run. The fastest RX’d time for team competition from the Royal Force Protection Unit was 7:14. Greg Amundson had the fastest individual RX’d time time of 7:30.
