Matt U. and his wife getting jiggy with it at their wedding this past Saturday:


  • I have to let everyone know that on the day that Matt U. got married (this past Saturday) he had requested that Josh come up with a “Wedding WOD” for him to do at the 9am class as a way to calm his nerves for the big day.
    This is what Josh came up with:

    Three Rounds for Time:
    Kneel to Propose [100′ Walking Lunges w/ 1.5 pood KB]
    Walk Down the Aisle [100′ Farmer’s Walk w/ 1.5 pood KBs]
    Carry Her Over the Threshold: [100′ Zercher Walk w/ 95#)]
    Wedding Night: [21-15-9 Thruster w/ 95#]

    I didn’t get to witness the WOD but Matt reported back to me that it was just what he needed to have a great wedding day!

    “Just what he needed”?
    Matt needed crippling lower body failure on his wedding day?
    What was Josh’s finisher, slamming your guy parts in a car door?
    I’m joking. Congrats, Matt (on the WOD and the wedding)!
