3 rounds of:
500 meter row
clean and jerk, 135 lbs (95 lbs)
Partner #1 rows 500 meter while partner #2 gets as many C&Js as possible. Then you switch. Each person does each exercise three times.
Large people need to row under 1:50. Medium people need to row under 2:00. Small people need to row under 2:15. The purpose of the workout is to see how many C&Js you can do in a fatigued state. So row hard.

Erin "Lambo" Lamb-Smith
It was Andy's first competition and he didn't tell anyone prior to the event that he was competing, so it was a surprise to see him warming up on Saturday morning. He performed very well all day. In his first and third workout he placed 2nd. On the second and fourth workouts he placed 12th. He remained calm, cool and collected the whole time. (For all of us that know Andy, that is not a surprise.) He had to do A LOT of extra ring dips on the second workout, which cost him some places. Andy placed 6th overall in the Men's Scaled Division.
Caleb was solid all day. He placed 2,9,4,5 in his workouts. Of course his body weight stuff always looks effortless; the box jumps were easy in the first workout, and the snatch weight didn't slow him down at all. Despite his elbow, Caleb ended up on the podium with a third place finish in the Men's RX'd Division.
KO was, of course, Madam Consistent. She placed 6,3,3,4. She didn't have to win any of the workouts to finish on the podium. She was only 5 points behind the leader. Box jumps in the first workout set her back a little. She made up for it though. She was a tank at the sled, she never slowed down or stopped. For as skinny as she is, the wall walks didn't seem to slow her down either. And believe it or not..... her double unders looked great. At least from what I could tell while I (Lambo) was dying on the wall walks. KO finished on the podium in second place in the Women's RX'd Division.
I (Lambo) was all over the place, 10,4,14,1. My saving grace was the L-sit at 53 seconds. The first workout was a low-back burner. The wall walks on the third workout creamed me, all the other stuff I went unbroken. In the second workout, I did make up some ground on the dips, in fact KO and Juli went out the door just in front of me, but they were much faster at the sled. (Lambo finished in 5th place overall in the Women's RX'd Division.)
P.S When I went up to get Calebs stuff from the podium, Shannan yelled out "YAY BOOBIES!!!!!", really loud. The room went uncomfortably silent......
