7 rounds for time of:
95-lb. sumo deadlift high pulls, 10 reps
10 ring dips
After being loaded on a bus at 3:30am on Wednesday, flown to The Ranch in Aromas California and performing a grueling 7k trail run followed 10 minutes later by a deadlift pyramid beginning at weights over many of our 1RM and followed by 19 other barbells increasing in weight, and then a mini-chipper involving 20# wallballs for ladies and 30# for the men, some ghd sit-ups and a medball hill sprint, the athletes returned to Carson yesterday morning. In past years the swim event has alway come first but this year athletes had 3 workouts under their belts and the swim was just that; a 500m swim only event. Two days down and three to go.
Now it’s Friday and athletes are back at that familiar stomping-ground, the StubHub Center, and all we really know is they’ll be doing more events over the next 3 days that will eventually identify the fittest in the World. The number and type of workouts are completely unknown, with the exception of a squat clean ladder and Murph, and by the way things have gone down so far, they’ll likely remain so until the last possible minute.
