CrossFit WOD

SWOD: Back Squat, 90% of Max Effort
65% x 5 reps, 75% x 5 reps, 85% x 5+ reps (as many reps as possible at 85%)

WOD: 5 rounds for time
5 Russian Swings (heavy)
10 Push Ups
15 Double Unders

My max back squat is 190 pounds.  90% is 171 pounds.  65% of 171 is 112 pounds.  75% of 171 is 129 pounds.  85% of 171 is 146 pounds.  I did 5 x 115, 5 x 130 and 15 x 145.

I used the 53# kettle bell.  I used rocks from the gravel pit outside to help me keep track of my rounds.  When I was done, I had to triple check those rocks to make sure I finished all 5 rounds…every one else was still going.  I thought maybe I missed one or something.  Until I saw Bad Ash’s time on the board.  She had a faster time than me (but only by about 15 seconds :-) ), so I knew my time was legit.

Time: 3:48
