    • Need to work on keeping appropriate leg alignment on the OHS

  2. Great work today everyone!! This was a tough WOD (especially following “Nutts” yesterday) and both waves of RXers kicked a$$! Can’t wait to see what Hero WOD HQ has in store for us tomorrow.
    Oh, BTW, Coach Laura just happens to be ranked #1 @ Regionals as I type this…just sayin’ 😉 See you all tomorrow!

    • P.S. please note that a Turkish Get-up is all about the “getting up”…reference the videos posted last time this exercise came up and the one Jeff T from CF Alexandria posted on the HQ site this time around…this Hero WOD is about pushing a heavy weight up, so don’t worry if you didn’t reverse it and do the Turkish Get-DOWN too this time around…that’s just GRAVY (but keeping working for that gravy)
      🙂
      P.P.S. go team RX

  3. Yay, Team RX! We can’t feel your pain, but at least we’re feeling a little of our own with these hero wods. Thanks, Michael, for the great coaching. I did not do the ‘get down’ part this time but I had moved from 10lb in Dec on the Turkish GUs to 25lb today.
    TGUs with 25lb kb
    OHS with 25lb kb (except for 5 lousy reps @ 15lb near beginning when I having some trouble)
    Swings were all with 35lb kb
