    Can’t remember the last WOD I posted, so:
    Thursday –
    PU Ladder
    17 rds + 16
    Friday –
    10 rds: 25:22
    15 PSU
    15 K2E
    This detroyed my shoulder again, so I took the next 3 days off. My abs are still sore as well.
    In Chicago all week & trained w/ my little brother last night:
    Push Press:
    185, 205, 215, 225, 235, 240(f), 240(f)
    Strangely these don’t hurt my shoulder as much as PSU and rings. Weird.

    good time at CFE this morning
    then after resting for a half hour, we thought a 2k was a good idea…. (2k’s are ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA!!!!!!)

  • Kelly

    2k row – sounds like one of Anthony’s ideas…sorry I missed that…HA

  • Brian

    Boy do I suck at DUs:
    50 DU/25 Burpees/15 Squat Jumps
    40 DU/20 Burpees/15 Squat Jumps
    30 DU/15 Burpees/15 Squat Jumps
    I’m also pretty slow at BW stuff right now. Surprisingly burpees didn’t hurt my shoulder. Push-ups do & burpees don’t. Go figure.

  • george

    burpees/push ups are the same for me and my shoulder. it’s probably from the fact that you can sorta roll up out of a burpee leaving some weight on your lower half.
    how has your rehab been going?
