On 7/20/04 I will turn 44 years old. I've been doing the WOD for about 3 mos or so and have definitely noticed some improvements. I'm looking for some suggestions as to what would be a good 'birthday benchmark w/o'. Keep in mind that I was in on the DL/BP/Clean insanity on 7/18, so I won't be up for any heavy pulling. I haven't yet subscribed to the Journal, which I plan on doing soon.

Great idea to celebrate your birthday. Boy, there's lots to choose from. Some classic wod's are: (see FAQ for details

"Fight Gone Bad"
Wall-ball – 20 pound ball, 8 ft target. (Reps)
Deadlift high-pull 75 pounds (Reps)
Box Jump – 20” box (Reps)
Push-press 75 pounds (Reps)

Any of the ladies (Angie, Barbara, Chelsea, etc.)

You could also do max pull-ups, max push-ups.

44 rounds of:
7 Pull ups

happy birthday steve!
how about this:
subtract your age from 100, then do that many reps of
- pullups
- squats
- knees to elbows
- pushups
then run a mile.
do the whole thing for time and compare times on each birthday.
