 Josh and Alan getting after the Air Force Wod

Josh and Alan getting after the Air Force Wod

Great start to the day today with 5 of us hitting it hard in the driveway at 5:30 am

After a very nice session of Wim Hot breathing where I was getting some long retentions, we began our warmup in preparation for the Air Force workout

Air Force

20 Thrusters 

20 Sumo Deadlift High Pull

20 Jerks

20 Overhead Squats

20 Front Squats

All of this is done with a 95 lb barbell.  You must stop what you are doing and do 4 burpees at the top of each minute before continuing.

Justin killed this one because he really doesn't like burpees.  

I love this format where there is an uncomfortable movement that has to be done in order to continue.  It really throws a twist into the workout and forces you to hold on to that bar longer and do more than you may have done if the burpees were not part of this workout.  

We started on the Thrusters which I am still unsure if that is the way we are supposed to do it.  We may have done it wrong and were supposed to start with burpees.  Either way, this is a great workout.  Ill do some research and find out how it is supposed to be done.  

This one definitely gets a star for being a favorite.

Im going to leave at noon to drive to Montana with my son.  This will be my second time this summer to have driven across the country.  I look forward to my time with him
