    In honor of USAF SSgt Timothy P. Davis, 28, who was killed on Feburary, 20 2009 supporting operations in OEF when his vehicle was struck by an IED. Timothy is survived by his wife Megan and one-year old son T.J.

    8 Minute Rep Ladder (Increasing by 2's)

    AMRAP 20

    10 Toes to Bar

    15 Wall Balls (20/14)

    *Record fastest/slowest rounds


    Bench pressing is one of the best movements we can use to develop lock-out strength and stamina.  Finish the day with classic interval work: if you are going “all out” properly in Part 2, there should be a drop-off in time right after the first set.

  • Monday - May 14

    While part 1 may be “simple”, it should be viewed as another opportunity to learn to pace.  And while the workout may be only be 3 rounds, you are looking for a pace that is sustainable for an hour.  Work on the eccentric part of barbell cycling in part 2 - each complex should be completed in under 1:00.

    Time to build some upper body stamina!  Don't look past the value of ring rows.  Part 2 is a gut check.  If you don't know how to workout with urgency, this is the one to give it a shot.  You need to be on those wall balls by the 30 second mark and no, do not put the ball down.
