Instead of the WOD, today I tried KB squatthrust DL with 2x32's. Excution is simple, grab two KBs, do a squatthrust, pushup, then hop back up an do a D.L. Repeat. I did 100 reps, what a good time.

BTW I got this combo off of a Steve Maxwell article in the most recent Dragondoors mag, Hardstyle.

There was a WOD some time ago (the fog of pain...) that had DB burpees combined with a clean (or was it a thruster?) of the DBs.

That is, hold 2 DBs, squat down to put them on the floor, shoot your legs back into the squat-thrust, do a pushup (holding the DBs on the ground as if they were parallettes), shoot your legs back into a squat, now squat clean the DBs, and finish with a jump or thruster up (while thrusting the DBs overhead). Do this as a continuous sequence, as they each flow naturally into one another.

Repeat for reps.

I remember the weighted burpee/thruster using two 35# dbs plus pullups as the hardest WOD I've done yet. Tabata 72# kb swings rank right up there too (I can't wait to try it with the 88# bell!), but at least that agony is done in four minutes....

Steve Maxwell has a lot of WOD-looking workouts that really kick the crap out of you very quickly.

I've searched through his posts alone on (using the Forum Search function), and have found a LOT of great info on good physical training. And some pretty cool workout ideas, too.

You all are referring to this WOD:

It was also the hardest that I've ever done. The "dumbbell burpee hang squat clean thruster" had such a bizarre effect that I felt strong doing my third, and by the fourth could barely breathe. I also remember the pull ups as a rest. This workout was a turning point for me--after finishing it, I've never feared getting to the end of a WOD.

Yup; there were many comments that day, mine included, that referred to the pullups as "active rest".

Fun times...
