9 x Wallball (20/14lbs)

Notes: It's a Thursday and we know some of our athletes out there are full of piss and vinegar. The truly stout of heart will substitute GHD Sit-ups for Abmat Sit-ups as well as Wallball 2-Fers for Wallball. Wallball 2-Fers are executed the same as a traditional Wallball Shot except they include an additional Air Squat repetition that needs to be completed while the ball is still in flight.

''M.E. Bench Press''
Finally back in the fight with Bench Press, wrist feels 100 percent again on this movement. Yessssss. Still managed to hit 285lbs for my 1RM today, which was a pleasant surprise.

''Blackjack AMRAP''
9 x Wallball 2-Fers (20lbs)
15 x GHD Sit-ups
21 x Double-unders

Sad Note: After 13 months of truly dedicated service my jump rope unfortunately failed to live through today's workout. River burial on funeral pyre will occur shortly.
See you in Valhalla, old friend.
