Workout of the Day

WOD 2 – in the afternoon…
Partner carry 10 stories, alternating as necessary
200 burpees as a team
400 meters wheelbarrow walk as a team
We had an incredible turnout for Saturday’s outdoor WOD in downtown Sacramento with 25 people showing up to tackle the 14th and H parking deck.  We quickly partnered up and began the carrying portion to the top.  I wound up in a group of 3 with Jason Mulligan and Ben Alderman.  To accommodate this adjustment, the odd man did standing broad jumps while the other two carried/were carried.  We rotated as necessary until reaching the top.  Once on the top deck we alternated sets of 10 burpees as fast as we could until we hit 300 for our team.  This was surprisingly easy.  The rest interval was plenty long enough to feel near fully recovered so each set was getting done fast.  Finally, we traded off wheelbarrow walking until each of us had completed 200 meters.  This was by far the most difficult piece of the workout.  Not only were the arms and chest smoked from the burpees, but the concrete surface took its toll on our hands.  Everyone that tried to go without gloves wound up with blisters on their palms.  Not pretty.  Still, the workout was a blast and having so many people up there to share it with made it a really special day. 

Ben managed to get a short clip of us doing the buddy carry.  Brought back some memories from the Iceland trip last summer.
