The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed

Morning WOD

160' Farmer's carry 70lb KB (4 lengths of back room)

In the mornings try to scale the weights down. It is too early! And remember the goal is for a high intensity workout.

Evening WOD 

Hang Power Snatch 5x3

3RM at 95#. More like a squat snatch than a power snatch.

7 Burpees
6 T2B
5 Hang power snatch 75#

Fortune favors the bold


Got tested for Level II today. Now I can start doing extra WODs at the gym. Went into the test not knowing what I had to do but was happy that I got through everything. Things I got to work on are handstand push ups (maintain the triangle) and muscle ups. With this being pretty much my first muscle up ever, I need to learn to prevent my wrists from pushing through the rings at the bottom of the dip. Kipping was perfect.
