Today, the high school basketball team I am training participated in team wheel barrow ramp work. Each team pushed a wheel barrow loaded with 50lbs up a 45 degree incline for 30 meters. At the end of the ramp are 15 stairs which they double leg bound taking two with each hop. At the end they returned the cart to their teammate. The winning team completed the most trips in 20 minutes. We finished with 4 sets of bounds, hop and sprint, and backward run.

As always, pure fitness from the mind of Rut!
Just wish we had some hilly areas around here! The closest thing we have is the Matterhorn at Disneyland.
My daughter does ramp sprints in a truck loading area as part of her training. Great for building that sprint power!
Maybe I can find one of those around here. . .

Looks like fun
I am going to go out this weekend and look into getting a wheelbarrow
Does anyone else get the crazy stares at the gym or out in public when doing a crossfit type workout? Why do they stare and not ask questions?

Hey Mike,
As you probably read in the comments section, several of us who use commercial gyms are looked at as "kooks" and generally given wide berth during the WOD (especially while doing Turkish get ups and burpees!). I'm still waiting for the day when one of the gawkers comes up and says,"What's that supposed to work?" and I answer "My body, go to Now, let me finish, I'm on the clock."
