I saw Castro's instagram where he says "Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines" and then shoots some pool.

For those following The Outlaw Way, this was the conditioning piece of the workout on Tuesday:

At a conversational pace or 150BPM (work hard, but maintain an exertion level that would allow you to carry on a conversation without breathing hard)-

30:00 AMRAP of:

40 6″ Target Burpees
40 Wall Balls 20/14#

Maybe 15.3 will be something like that. Hopefully a lot less than 30 minutes, though.

[QUOTE=Scott Jenkins;1250219]I remember being at regionals 2009, before kipping hspu had been invented, 12 guys kneeling looking at the wall, happy days. And that was just 15-12-9 Clean & Jerk and HSPU.

if you tuned it a the right (or is it wrong?) time, it would have looked like they were doing supported headstands for time. i think it happened during the early games.

well castro is certainly spending money to give hints...

Start you engines.. implies that its going to be a motor thing.

8 ball- well maybe wall balls.. that what it sounds like to me..

Last hint had pistols in it 2 of them.. meaning left and right?

And a double under rope.. not a RX rope so its not that important.. ha ha..

So wall balls, pistols and double unders?

I am fine with that..I like it when they break up the double unders into sections not just one lump..

Honestly the best part of the announcement show is Brooke's standards demonstration 😍.

I would say that more people can't do muscleups than can't do HSPU.

80% will end up doing this one scaled, and there will be a lot of low scores on this wod.

I like it. I can crank out a set of 7 UB MUs to start and have gotten good enough at WB that I can breath through those and I am pretty good at DUs and will use that time to actively rest before the next set of MUS.

Good times.

[B]15.3[/B]

I think this is perfect not giving people the chance to do 1 rep just to be a part of the Rx. Either you can do a MU or you can't - So you either choose no score or go scaled which is fair.

[B]I went scaled[/B]... did it this morning 1hr after getting up.. [B]hit 624 reps[/B] which I was pleased with. I think I can make 700 on Monday.

All I can is good luck because this is hard on the lungs and thighs.

Now that we know what the workout is - what the hell did the Instagram video with Rory and Dave and the pool table mean?

"Start your engines" - engine based workout, can you keep moving - got it

pool table/9 ball/2 going in the hole twice - all the other "conspiracy" stuff - can anyone translate it?

I think they need to rework things some- maybe add a third division in between RX and this scaled. The scaled workout is such a joke drop down from RX. I understand that you can make any workout tough if you push yourself, but there's nothing really interesting about wall balls and some single unders- he completely cut out a movement. Should be a middle ground with something like 7 pull ups and 7 dips. Call it the difference between intermediate scaled and beginner scaled It feels like Castro sees the world in binary- you have firebreathers and fatasses.

Full disclosure, most of my ire is on the part of my wife who thinks the scaled is incredibly lame this time, but has never hit a muscle up. For me, it'll be 14 minutes of trying to remember how I've done a muscle up before. If I score a 3 I'll be stoked. As much as I hate it, I do kind of like that he's making us declare RX versus scaled right out of the gate.
