A lesson in Burpees. they were probably invented by Lt. Thomas Burpee, a militiaman in the American Revolution. Here he is:
Upon further investigation, that is a picture of A Thomas Burpee but not THE Thomas Burpee. Neat.
So I know it has been a few days, but things have been crazy around my neck of the woods. Also, from now on, I am going to try to complete every WOD without any modifications because I am going for my Level I Cert (woot woot!) in June and I want to be sure I can do everything they need me to. So far, my times have taken a hit but I have been able to finish without mods, so it is all good.

This wasn't so bad, though I do hate Bench. I did 115 for my working sets. Not too bad but I seem to be stuck on this. Oh well. It is still more than I have ever been able to do in my life.
Annie didn't go badly either. I did all Double Unders and the sit-Ups were easy. I finished in 13:40.

50 Bulgarian Pull-Ups
50 Wall Balls
50 KB Swings
This was a but tough. I did all the Bulgarian Pull-Ups with my feet on the tallest box, but it took me awhile. I used a 12lb ball for the Wall Balls, a 16kg KB for the Swings, and 65lbs fro the SDLHP. I finished in 23:13.

5 Rounds of:
Front Squat went well. I can't remember the last time we did them, so it was good. I made it up to 135, but I think I could have done more. The rest of the WOD went well. I did all true Push-Ups and used a 40lb DB for the Waiter's Walk. I finished in 18:24.
