WOD 020112

Partner Wallballs
500 Wallballs
60 second intervals
Every 60 seconds you get as many wallballs in as you can between you and your partner until you get to 500. Your 60 seconds of work is your partners 60 seconds of rest.
Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes for success.

Welcome to The Box Kimbra and Derek!
Attn Competitors: We are all going to wear our black Militant shirts to the competition. If you don't own one please let me know, we need to order them right away. I need to know what size you wear. If you are going to come and cheer us on please wear any Militia Box shirt you own. If you don't own one and you want to buy one please let me know, we have some left. They are $20 each.
About the rope climbs. Please wear something that will protect your shins. Maybe go buy some compression socks and wear long pants. The rope really tears your shins up.
Also, a lot of chalk and tape is being used but not replenished. If you're going to use the tape please replace it, it can get expensive. Thank you.

Pull Ups
Push Ups
Air Squats

Welcome to The Box Mike and welcome back Shelly and Travis! 
Attention Militants: For those of you who are doing the competition we are doing things a bit different this week. We have hung two ropes but we have ordered 4 more and we hope to have them up by Saturday. We will also have a lot of visitors from other gyms that don't have ropes so I think we should practice our rope climbs all week long and get ourhang  squat cleans down and then we will all gather on Saturday and do the WOD all day long with all the other gyms. Please hold the day aside. It should be fun. More details later in the week.

It was nice to have you back Jarod. Safe trip back.
Come in ready to get your body fat done. Also, I would like everyone who is doing our biggest loser challenge to take a picture of themselves front and side and keep it with them. I will ask you to do it again on St. Paddy's Day so you can see the difference. Do it in a bathing suit. The rules are just this, keep in contact with your team mates, keep each other accountable. If you have any questions about what eating plan to follow I'll try to answer any questions you have.
