BootCamp starts in a few weeks. More information will be posted soon!

Take 12 minutes to practice handstand holds and free standing handstands


“Double-Under  Ladder”

For time: 5-10-15-20-15-20-35-40-45-50 reps… and back down

In this workout, the clock starts and the athlete completes 5 consecutive double-unders.  The athlete shall rest as much as he/she wishes before starting the 10 consecutive double-unders…..and so on….  Each set is to be performed consecutively or the athlete must start that set over.  Example:  If the athlete misses on the 24th double-under of the set of 25 reps, the athlete must start the set of 25 over.  The goal is to do the ladder (up and down) as fast as you can.  You are to do the set of 50 only ONCE! 

There is a 20 minute cap in place.  Scale down the amount of sets as needed. 

Compare to 5/13/10

    Is it supposed to be:


    Also, do you HAVE to rest between each tier?

    Yes and yes…rest doesn’t have to be more than a second, but you can’t just do 500 continuous DU’s (if that were possible)…so 5 then stop then 10 then stop, etc…at least that’s how we rolled in the 9 am.

    WOD: 5 consecutive. I got up to 8 but never made it to 10 during the WOD. FML!


    Amy wrapped my torso up in two red bands to tether my arms down, therefore counter acting my “Ricky Bobby” arms and…
    31 consecutive DU’s, improving my PR by over 300%! WTF? I guess I have to do DU’s tied up in rubber bands from now on.
    THANKS AMY WOODS!!! I feel like a winner!

    19:07 rx… great job to all of the 9-ers, I’m really digging the new schedule and especially the 0900 class. Great job Nick! I think it was Amy’s coaching and a little bit of Tom Cruise’s witchcraft that helped you pull off that 31 streak. Also, WOD most likely to induce fits of cursing and throwing things = this WOD… AWESOME
