Thrusters and Wall Climbs

Workout of the Day

5 minute AMRAP:

2 thrusters (185#)
8 foot wall climb

While walking around the complex out at the new CF Anywhere gym in El Dorado Hills I came across a pretty cool retaining wall.  It serves to separate the barbwire-enclosed grazing pasture from the business park.  It's built with varying heights so anyone can do climbs on it, depending on how difficult they want to make the exercise.  I picked an 8 foot spot, figuring it would be challenging yet not impossible.  Proved true enough... I made it through 6 rounds in 5 minutes and really wasn't ever in doubt of making the climb.  Just giving myself enough time to make the squat clean thrusters every time.

American River Confluence WOD

Had a few Welsh boys in town last weekend so I took them out to one of my favorite spots in Auburn for a run around.  Video is below.
