From the mainsite WOD:
"45 pound barbell One-legged overhead squat"

That's just nuts.

RachelRose said...

Awesome Bobby! It hasn't even been 6 weeks and you PR'd reps and weight! sweet!

Bobby Gill said...

Crap, Rachel just made me realize that today's WOD is *front* squat, whereas I did *back* at the globo this morning. That's what I get for skipping out on the Diesel class...

PR is for 5x5 backsquat, not front.

Do you still have the link that you put up a while back with hotel WODS or travel WODS? I have a handful that I'm doing this week, but would love some other ideas. Pretty please????

They post a out-of-town WOD with every WOD they post on their website.

Here's the list of all the body weight WOD's aka Mike Gross goes to heaven...

But my go to hotel workout is

"Gates of Hotel" - 100 squat clean dumbbell thrusters, every minute on the minute do 5 burpees. You pick the weight.

This is a fun one to play with, change the primary movement (maybe dumbbell snatch...) and the punishment movement (maybe 10 situps, or jumping jacks or something).

It'll def get your heart moving...

Tried it tonight to mix up with cooked tuna and celery/onion/cucumber (just sneaking in the veggies)... wanted to make some homemade tuna salad. It's great!
