It’s been a busy couple of weeks, but I finally got around to doing a demo for the current reader video challenge – the storyline WOD. The rules for this were simple: come up with a workout that mimicked or told a story through the chosen exercises. Be as creative and original as possible, and as always try to keep submissions to less than 5 minutes. The prize for the winner is 4 days of sailing the eastern seaboard aboard a 40 foot catamaran, graciously donated by Sharlaun Family Tours in Fredricksburg, Virginia. Obviously this is an amazing prize, worth upwards of $5000, and it warrants a serious shout out to the family responsible. You guys are awesome.

Since announcing this challenge it has kind of slipped to the back burner… but no longer. I am literally licking my chops at the potential for amazing ideas from you guys so start sending them in. My take on it was to re-enact how a fairy tale knight might have trained to rescue a princess. Call me a sucker for Disney, but I thought it was a cool idea. The workout itself turned out to be an absolute beast. 30 minutes straight of non-stop conditioning. I don’t think my heart rate dropped below 160 the entire time. Check the video below to see what I mean.
