sandbagging it!

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves."
~ Victor Frankl, Holocaust survivor and author of Man's Search for Meaning

Just liked the quote.


A. Athletes start in prone position, heads facing forward. Coach places unknown weight sandbag (40#, 50#, 55#, 60#, 80#) behind each athlete, at random. On “GO”, 100 ft. sandbag sprint. Drop sandbag at the 100 ft. mark, turn and sprint back without sandbag. Upon crossing start line, 5 burpees. Repeat x3.

B. 50 ft. forward sprint, 50 ft. backward sprint. Upon crossing the line, 10 burpees. Repeat x3.

Didn't keep track of times on the sprints. Just worked hard. Felt good.

C. 3 rounds for time:
3 man-makers 45# DBs
6 shoulder to shoulder pullups (shoulder touches bar on each rep)
9 toes-2-bar

5:21 rx'd. Another grip testing workout! Loving it!
