What scares you?

      I can't believe this... 3 people are following this blog, how exciting!!! Ok, anyway, lets talk a little bit about what scares you. Specifically, what's the worst WOD that you've experienced? There's some WOD out there that just makes you cringe. Is it Fran? ... a 5k run or 2k row? ... Nasty Girls?

Post-Filthy Fifty (fav WOD of mine)

     So what scares me? What makes Frosh (yes I talk about myself in 3rd person) want to run screaming into the hills? Three little words... Air... Force... WOD. CrossFit St. Louis just did this WOD on Friday, and I've been thanking my lucky stars that I missed it.

"Air Force WOD"
20 Thrusters
20 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
20 Push Jerks
20 Overhead Squats
20 Front Squats

Barbell is loaded with 95 lbs for men or 65 lbs for women, and 4 burpees performed every minute on the minute.

     I've been grounded into the dirt twice now by the WOD... Doesn't mean I'll never do it again. I'll be excited/frightened to try this again, I will not let it beat me!

     So now I want you, my followers/readers, to sound off. What makes you want to throw in the towel? Why do you have such a problem with it? I want to actually hear from you CrossFit studs and studettes.

The following video is a little fun for those who work in an office (... like myself)

Post time and thoughts to comments...

  1. I hear you on this one. Its the Burpees that end up killing me, especially at the end, when somehow you end up doing more burpees than the actual lifts! I had to deload the last round, on the OHS. Killed me.
