Workout of the Day (WOD)

A. Turkish Get ups: Complete 4 sets of 4 reps increasing weight.

B. “Lucky 13”
13 Minute AMRAP

13 Toes to Bar*
13 Kettlebell Swings (m = 16/24/32kg, w = 12/16/24kg) (L1 = Russian Swings)
13 Lateral Box Jump Overs (m = 24/24/30, w = 20/20/24)**

*Toes to Bar Levels
L3: T2B
L2: Wall Situps
L1: Wall Situps

**Step ups and downs permitted for Level 1 and 2.

This workout has been developed in collaboration with Neal Maddox to get your heart pumping and legs and lungs burning. Pick a skill level that doesn't result in getting stuck for too long. If you have T2B but not yet 13 unbroken, Level 2 could be right. If hanging on the bar will be challenging for that many reps, you might consider going to Level 1 so you can keep moving and get more work done!

Speak with your coach if you have questions about which level is most appropriate for you. Enjoy the workout, and see you on the whiteboard!

Post load for TGU and rounds+reps completed in the AMRAP. Ex: 55#, 5+32 L3
