Getting used to the heat/altitude here in Kandahar 3300' and 35C+
Mods below - I know that I can't power clean 95 lb for 50 reps, but figured I could accomplish the same amount of work by halving the weight and doubling the reps. Did 50m worth of Beck's Burpees which turned out to be 40 reps (about 4 feet per jump).

Gordo, good to see you are alive and kicking out there dude. Nice work with that beast and interesting mods.

Been thinking bout how I'm gonna get this done at home (sans bar) if I can't fit it in next week and was thinking I might go for a pair of 50lb dbs for everything except snatches. Those I was thinking of doing one armed and doubling the reps.

Makes me retch just thinking bout it

Anyways dude, great to see you back on deck.

Cheers, kempie

Completed in 1:06:33, misread and did cleans and snatches from the floor, oops. Becks burpees covered almost 100m. Good stuff guys.
