Yeah, I figured Ranger School, in its own way, is going to be something like CrossFit. I've heard of many interesting 'exercises' that the Ranger students experience while they are there.

I try to vary my warm-up. I like the CrossFit warm-up a lot. But, I'll vary it depending on the focus of the WOD. Also, I like to focus on bettering certain skills during my warm-up. For example,...

Didn't do any OHS work after the Back Squat work in today's WOD. I did manage to Back Squat a 1RM of 320#. So, I guess my legs are on the right track to the 15 reps of OHS at BW.

Well, after the push presses today, I decided I didn't want to push for a heavy weight. Only did two sets of OHS at 45# and 65#. I did 15 reps for form each set.
