One of my favorite quotes:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.  -Theodore Roosevelt


Tuesday’s WOD:

Strength: DB Bench 3×8-10reps as heavy as possible.  (please don’t drop the DBs)

Skill/Conditioning:  Repeat this twice.

Max Strict Pull Ups Immediately Followed by Max Kipping Pull ups

Rest 3 minutes

Max Strict Pull Ups Immediately Followed by Max Toes to Bar

Rest 3 minutes

*No mixed grip on the above.  (mixed grip is one hand forward and one hand backward)

Cash Out: choose either 1000m Row or 800m Run.  Go for a PR on this!
