As many rounds as possible (AMRAP) in 30 minutes of:
5 Deadlifts (275#/225#)
13 pullups
9 box jumps (24")

Scale as appropriate. Post number of rounds to comments.

Scaled Deadlift to 225# and it was still tough.

10rds + 5 DLs.

On a different note - the original "McGhee" was 5 DLs, 13 Pushups, and 9 box jumps. Pullups was a challenging alternative.

6 rds at 275
4 rds at 225

I felt the pull up mojo in the middle rounds and was pretty happy....then it left and I was sad

11 rds + 5 DL + 11 PU as rx'd
- Pretty happy with today. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Nice work John and Russ.

Did the 225 version. 10 rds and 2 deads. I thought I felt sorry for myself, then I looked at CL doing the 275 version- that made me feel sorry for him!

George said...

scaled to 245
9 rds, plus 2 pullups

Jeff said...

9 rds at 235 lbs

this totally sucked way worse than I thought it would.

5 rnds as Rxd, then 4 rnds @ 225. Had about a minute left to knock out a few more deadlifts but couldn't find the motivation to start a round I knew I wouldn't finish

Ray said...

5 rounds at 235# (new PR over 225#)

pullups scaled to green bands thru 3rd round, then scaled again to ring pullups

I used the 20in box also
