WoD: 10min AMRAP
- 20 Wallballs 20/16
- 1 Rope Climb
- 5 Deadhang Pull-Ups (DHPU) (Blue Band)
- 10 Barbell Curls 65#
- 15 Stiff-Legged Dead Lifts (SLDL)
WoD: 4 rounds.
The "sell-out" ended up actually being the harder part of the workout. I used 65# on the bar for both movements, though it was an option to add and remove weight between them. Meh. I figured that for 75 SLDLs, a lighter weight would be just fine. To judge by the fact that I was sore for about 4 days after, I think I made the right choice. Turns out, the main issue was with my grip. After hammering it with the wall-balls (especially the catches) and rope climbs, adding in pull-ups and curls, I started getting shooting pains in my forearms. Not very fun! So, every time I broke in the later sets, it was to keep from dropping the bar completely out of control.
Total time: 13:41
