5 rounds

40 seconds max reps, push press 95/65
400 meter run

1 burpee penalty, performed immediately, every time you put the bar on the ground before the 40 seconds are up.  You are able to rest in the rack or hang position without penalty. Record the number of reps per round and total time to complete all five rounds.  You may rest as needed after each run.  The 40 seconds begin when you place your hands on the bar to clean the weight.

Scale weight as needed, to be able to perform at least 8-12 reps your first round.  You may not maintain that pace for future rounds, that is fine.

** Jacked version in 115lb men, 80lb women.

CrossFit Workout - Friday 9/12/14

Task List WOD aka Friday Fun Day

Following your warmup, you will have 30 minutes to work on any of the following movements & skills.  You will do each one for at least one set, then you can choose which ones you repeat in any combination or order.

- Front break fall - learn a safe way to land if you fall or are pushed to the ground
- Lower to an L from and inverted hang on the rings
- Hip and back extension on the GHD - more challenging that you think
- Lateral jumps - over a pair of paralletes,
- Rope climbs - learn the J-hook and master the downward trip on the rope
- Bear crawls - just because they suck

End with a short conditioning run cool down or 10 minutes of foam rolling and lacrosse ball work.

** We've been doing these Task List WODs for years, mainly as active recovery work after a rough week of workouts and to help develop skills that you normally don't do on your own.  They are crowd favorites.
