Can someone describe a maneater?

Can someone describe or point to a video? The maneater I think is...two dumbells in hand, squat down like a burpee do a pushup, followed by a DB row on each side, gather feet under as in a burpee....but from here I don't know. Any help will be appreciated until I do this in between row sprints and commence hating you for getting me to do these...sorry.

you're looking for a description of a Manmaker. Think of a renegade row and burpee/thruster combination.

A Maneater - well, I'll let Brian and Jamie describe that one.


here's a video-
I don't know if there is commentary or music that is unsafe for F/W - I don't have speakers - so consider yourself warned.

Re: Can someone describe a maneater?

Are you talking about the man-MAKER?

Start with two dumbbells held overhead -> drop down with them -> do a push-up -> do a row on one side and then the other -> jump back up -> power clean -> push press and that's one rep.

Re: Can someone describe a maneater?

I hope the exercise isn't as tough as the crowd! I guess my main question is can I power clean from the floor or does one of the positions have to be full squat clean bottom position...or another way of asking the same question can this be push pressed from the PC catch position or must it be thrustered? And thanks for the laugh! I just rechecked the affiliate WOD and they do call it an eater not a maker, I thought I was expressing my inner John Hall!

Re: Can someone describe a maneater?

man 'makers' ... My affiliate has done these before, but I don't remember them with the renegade row. It simply was a burpee with dumbells. I believe power cleaning the db's and push pressing was allowed. I 'think' the manmaker exercise was gotten from the Navy Seal's site.

And it's Daryl 'Hall' and John Oats. No one could rock a mustache quite like John Oats.

Rollie Fingers' mustache could whip them both.
