    4 Rounds for Time of:
    20x Box Jumps
    15x Ground to Overhead
    10x Sandbag Getups

    -for the box jumps, you can use a fallen tree, low retaining wall, etc (roughly 24″). I suggest stepping down instead of jumping down
    -Ground to overhead means you are taking a weighted object (barbell, dumbbells, sandbag, packpack, etc) and taking the weight from touching the ground to overhead, with elbows locked out and shoulders fully open (“show your arm pits”)
    -Sandbag getups are going from a standing position, with sandbag on shoulder, to lying face up on the ground, back to standing

    If you have any other questions about how to do the workout, let me know.

    Post your time, along with box jump height and weights you used for the other two movements.

    Since I’m a visual learner……sounds like the opposite of this…

    Which is heavier - a soldier's pack or a slave's chains? Napoleon

    Same movement, just different definition of start/end point

    FRAGO: go light-ish on the weight and set a cutoff time on this one

    Today was a fail for me. I decided to do this back to back with yesterday’s workout to catch up. I was using a 95# barbell for Ground-to-Overhead and 101# sandbag for the getups. I got to muscular failure on the getups with 2 reps left of round 3. I struggled to get another rep for 4 minutes and then pulled the plug.

    Lesson: try not to bite off more than you can chew. I’ll be off icing my bruised ego (just kidding!) It happens to the best of us.

    Well this makes me feel better! ;-)

    I didn’t do “day 5” and my excuse?

    I unloaded a truck of 5,853 lbs of various cargo one box at a time.

    Getting lazy in my old age. :cry:

    Maybe I’ll make it up tomorrow.
