A few years ago I stumbled on the concept of GPP. This is the very first GPP program I ever used:

30 burpees
30 tire jumps
200' backward sled drag 85lbs
200' forward sled drag 85lbs
10 sandbag throws 25lbs
400' sandbag walk 60lbs
60 sledgehammer VS tire strikes

I think my first attempt was around 30 minutes. I did this routine once a week in addition to my PL routine and eventually brought my time down to 16:28 on June 23, 2004. I haven't done it since (although I've done variations using the same equipment).

Anyway, in addition to not doing this routine in 1.5 years, I haven't done outdoor GPP since last fall due to the weather. Well, a buddy of mine started asking when we'd be back in the parking lot dragging the sled, so what the hell ... why not this weekend?

Who cares if it was -30C with 50kmh winds ....

Nice work, Anthony. Are you somewhere in the midwest? We hit -32 here in Minneapolis on Saturday. I got outside for a bit on my fixed-gear bike, but that was a walk in the park compared to your effort.

Keep up the good work.

Good Work! I thought that was a pretty cool vid. Keep it up. I live in Indiana, so it gets cold, but we only get that low if you count windchill. There are some guys in my runner's club who run 20+ miles every Sunday throughout the winter. Not for me though.

Thanks everyone!! I'm on the east coast of Canada. We've had a fairly mild winter, but the past week has been very cold and windy.

Anthony,

Are those distances in feet or in meters?

Darren, good stuff! I was wondering if anyone would try it. I've only compared time with friends, so I'm not sure how I stand against some of the crossfit machines! Post your time!! I'm located in NB.

Nicholas, thankfully it's feet. Meters would be brutal!
