Again Faster has been challenging people to compete in an online workout series called, “Beat the Team.” Every ten day period since October, Again Faster has been posting a WOD that plays to the strengths of various Again Faster-sponsored athlete. For instance, “Lipson” had a moderate weight backsquat and kettlebell swing, but the bar had to be cleaned from the ground, a light weight for Dave Lipson. “Spencer” was max weight of 20 reps of overhead squats, clearly up Spencer Hendel’s wheelhouse of oly lifting. And so on…
So, my question is this: If you had to have a namesake WOD like these firebreathers, what would yours be? It could either include things that are your strengths, or it just be movements that you love doing.
If I had to create a “Plentus” WOD, I’d play to my strength-to-bodyweight ratio and quickness. So it would be something like:
then, within 60 seconds, find a max deadlift.
Subtract your time in seconds from your deadlift (e.g. 400lbs. deadlift – 360 seconds = 40) The highest number wins.
