FRIDAY 180914

“Fight Gone Harder”

Complete Three Rounds, Resting 1:00 Between Rounds:

Minute One: Wallball Shots, Maximum Repetitions (20lb. / 16lb.)
Minute Two: Kettlebell Sumo Deadlift High Pull (75lb. / 53lb.)
Minute Three: Box Jump, Maximum Repetitions (20′)
Minute Four: 200 Meter Sprint (Bus Stop and Back)
Minute Five: Toes to Bar, Maximum Repetitions

Note: Todays workout operates like “Fight Gone Bad” in which the Athlete achieves maximum repetitions at each station, then rotates at the end of the minute immediately to the next station. There is no rest between stations. At the end of each round, rest 1:00 and tally scores, then repeat for a total of 3 rounds. Athletes can pick their start station, but must honor the order of rotation. Maintain a total running score for each round. The 200 meter sprint counts as 20 points. Compare todays effort to August 21, 2018. Join Coach at the 4PM workout which will be a “Championship Fight” consisting of FIVE ROUNDS!

Thank You, Jason!
