Blair vs Sven 4

Workout of the Day

Blair vs Sven Faceoff #4:

10 deadlifts (140 kg)

20 burpees w/10 kg vest

30 pullups w/vest

40 wallballs w/vest

Remove vest

50 double unders

40 wallballs

30 pullups

20 burpees

10 deadlifts (140 kg)

I’m waaay overdue on this workout, so my apologies to Sven in advance. But I finally got this done and it was pretty rough. No problems with the deadlifts off the bat, but the burpees with the vest on were hard. I actually found it hard to balance with the extra weight swinging around and was way out of breath by the end. The pullups were easier than I thought—did them in sets of 10, 10, 6, and 4—but my heartrate was pounding away through the wallballs. Couldn’t wait to get the vest off. Double unders were quick but then going right back into wallballs wasn’t fun. At this point I entered the hazy zone where everything hurts but you’re only halfway conscious of what is happening. Before I knew it I was finished with the wallballs and pullups and struggling through the burpees. I broke the finishing set of deadlifts into 6 and 4 and stopped the clock at 11:31. Faster than I expected, but I was knocked out for 40 minutes or so afterwards. Light headed, a little dizzy, and seriously uncoordinated. That is until I heard Jukebox Hero coming through the stereo on my way to Monday Night Football and got a rush of fresh energy. Which was then flattened when the 49ers gave the ball away 4 times on their way to a 25-22 defeat. Brutal game.

The link to the video is below. Do this WOD if you’re looking for a challenge and let us know how it goes. Good luck.



  1. Hey Blair, did you put on the vest for the first set of deadlifts to make the burpee transition faster?

  2. did the WOD today, but left the vest on for the first et of DL, and did 315 instead of 140kg (7lb diff?). effin gnarly bro!
