challenge challenge challenge
HAHAHA, yea, any good weight lifter knows you have to talk about it for a wile to get in the mood to lift!!

It was just water for me as well, not bad.

Thanks, the squats were hard mostly because they followed the pullups, I was still breathing really hard from the pullups when i started the squats. When I was done I was seeing stars.

I'll take your challenge. Tomorrow morning I will take my ruck and load it with 85 lbs. Should be interesting, I haven't had a road march in a while, sounds like fun!

Exactly, you will do great too. I was thinking all the people passing me on the road must have though i was crazy or in the military. No one else runs with weight.

For fewest round and fastest time.

I'm 165lbs, I will carry 80lbs, I will be using a 30lbs vest and barbell with 2.5lbs plates.

Good luck.
Again-you rock!

Haha, sweet! Now THIS I can do

I weigh the same as you Nik, I will try to hit this challenge this weekend!
I will probably use a 95lb sandbag. No running though, will all be very brisk walking

I didn't want to put it down for a few reasons, I boasted to Scott I wouldn't need to do burpees, and I didn't want to spend the time still.

It was hard on my shoulders, right inbetween the shoulder blades. I carried it in highbar squat position for the most part. I would drop one arm when it got unbareable, and switched back anf forth from shoulder to shoulder till it got bareable.

I ran as much as I could, walked when I wanted to put it down, ran some more. I also streched my arms out to the plates, but didn't think much of it, I was just trying to move my arms as much as I could. No numbness.
It gets heavy on the traps after a wile, but if you move it arround it gets better fast.

I would get to a point to stop running and want to put it down, but I woud keep walking and it would ease up.

It was fun. You will be suprised with it. It is cool to put crossfit to practical aplication. I will not clean and jerk someone away from a car wreck, or to safty. I will pick them up and go. And at 80 lbs I can go for a wile, I now know that.

PS. Form check, I had to really resist the temtation to bend over under the weight when I got tired. I forced myself to stand up straight a few times. Keep that in mind.

You will be suprised. I ran on my toes I was sure to stay on my toes, I ran with really little steps to keep good form. Good luck!!
