Tim Stiansen at CrossFit WichitaTim Stiansen reppin’ TOTF at CrossFit Wichita.  With as much as we all travel, we just may be able to get the most photos at other boxes.  Consider the challenge thrown down to y’all when you go TDY, deploy, go on vacation, etc…



Band Resisted Pullups 4 rounds of 5 reps

Complete in singles if need be

Anchor Band to ground w/ heavy KB or DB under pull up bar. Step through band and place above the hips. Goal = Getting the Reps in.

Write down what band you ended up using to your logbook and in Comments here.  If you aren’t able to do it with a band, go for a total of 20 strict pull ups.  If you are unable to do that, the coaches will have scaling options, but I have a feeling you will all do amazing! 




“Posterior Dumbbell Complex”

5 Working Sets, Each For Load (try to increase weight ea round):
3 One Arm Dumbbell Dead Lifts
3 DB Row
3 One Arm DB Snatch
*Switch after the 9 reps

Post heaviest successful weight to Comment/LogWOD

So, start with the dumbbell in one arm, do 3 DLs, 3 rows, and 3 snatches, then switch to the other arm and do 3 DLs, 3 rows, 3 snatches.  This equals 1 Round.  Goal is to NOT let go of the weight during a round.  Rest as needed between rounds.  This means go all out during the rounds and increase the load each round if you can while maintaining good form.
