New Reader Challenge

For the months of March and April I will be accepting video submissions for a "Storyline" WOD. This idea was inspired by the "Viking"... a workout that I think consists of a 1000 m row (rowing to shore), a 800 m run (charging the town), 50 sledge hammer swings (breaking the door), 3 minutes on the punching bag (raping and pillaging), 50 sledge hammer swings (breaking back out), 800 m run (running back to the sea), and a 1000 m row (rowing back home). Storylines can be simple or elaborate, what matters most, as always, is creativity and originality. The prize for this contest is still to be confirmed, but it should include 4 days aboard a Catamaran sailing the Eastern seaboard of the U.S. The trip will include meals, workouts, and sightseeing. Estimated value of this package is upwards of $5,000 so coming up with an entry is worth your effort. Stay tuned for more details.


  1. Blair,

    Sounds like a fun challenge! This reminds me a lot of the workouts that (hint, might want to make sure entries don't copy one of their workouts).

  2. Filmed footage of a storyline WOD on Saturday, it's going through editing now :D
