WOD: 3 Rounds of : Rope Climb, Rowing, Battling Ropes, Slam Ball, Rest. 1st round is 1 minute per exercise, 2nd round is 2 minutes per exercise, and 3rd round is 3 minutes per exercise.


This WOD sucked. Didn't count reps, basically was just a workout for max effort. I got two rope climbs, about 75% of the way up the rope before I scaled down to a rope climb progression. Battling ropes did a number to my shoulders and core. Can't believe how brutal they actually are. For those who don't know what battling ropes are, its when you have a rope wrapped around a pole, and you're holding both ends of the rope in your hands. Then either simultaneously or alternating, move your hands up and down, to make waves in the rope. Looks kinda like this:
