The Rise (and Fall) of Gimplandia

Another super-fun Sunday down at the box for those with working lower extremities. Alan came up with a really fun Partner WOD combing everyone’s favorite movement combo: Box Jumps and Squats. There was some great energy throughout the WOD from all teams!

Partner Time:
5x
7 Squats (low- or hi-bar)@ 135 lb./95 lb.
12 Box Jumps 30″/26″/24″/20″

Workout Flow:
One partner is on squats while the other is on Box Jumps. The goal is to move at the same pace (read: fast and furious) and be able to switch movements right as each partner completes their reps.

Cash Out:
30 Ring Push Ups
30 Ring Pull Ups
30 Ring Inverted Pull Ups

Skill Work:
Skin the Cat practice

Gimplandia:
A new country was born today: Gimplandia. It’s a really nice place. It has bar-front property and access to pipes, rubber and hammers. Hard to beat, really. Border control, however, is a bitch. You need a passport, MRI, and Doctor’s permission to gain entry.

Gimplandia: home of the free. Land of the injured.

Unfortunately, it’s run by a tyrannical, evil dictator …
