3 – Power Snatches
4 – Power Cleans
5 – Pull-ups
6 – Burpees
7 – Push Presses
8 – Dead Lift
9 – Push-ups
10 – Wall Ball (and one attack on Brian)
11 – Thrusters (First set 50lb second set 20lb)
12 – 30″ Box Jump Overs
Finished in 36:30…ish. I took a few minute break after I threw the wall-ball, missed the wall and hit Brian – who was sitting in the doorway taking pictures – on the ankle. Pretty sure it hyper-extended his ankle. Hoping that’s all it is.
