KBS – 53/35
Box Jumps – 24/20
Nothing good to say about this workout, it was horrid. Bryan did the WOD with me and finished in like 14mins, I finished in like 20minutes something. It would probably have been longer but he ran my 800 with me and pushed me the whole time. It wasn't pretty but I knew before we started it was one of those workouts I just had to survive.
After I recovered I started playing around on the Rings. I was doing some L-sit pull ups when one of the guys said "you probably are strong enough to just go into a muscle up". I haven't tried doing muscle ups since like the first time I worked out in a Crossfit gym, but I figured what the heck I'd give it a shot. Anders got PUMPED and after trying and failing again and again the stars finally aligned and I hit my first ever muscle up.
Here's the video...
