Grin and BEAR It

When you think of bears you think of Yogi, Smokey, or even Ditka.  Well not anymore.  Now I think of bear complexes.  These little gems seem easy.  You see them in a workout and you say "only 5 reps...115 lbs...this is gonna be easy"  then you start the workout and you begin the battle.

That is kinda how the workout was today.  It kicked my ass for a while.  Then finally I won out.  My time was not great..but I did it prescribed.

What is a bear complex you ask?

Power clean
Front Squat
Push Press
Back Squat
Push Press
all in succession without putting the bar down.

That is 1.

So anyways.  I will likely be MIA this labor day weekend.  I have a lot going on and I'm starting it with a visit to crossfit KOP because that is where I'll be this weekend.   I will likely only get one workout in but that is ok.  It's a holiday right?

5-4-3-2-1 Bear Complex 115 lbs
30 double unders between rounds
if you drop the bar there is a 30 du penalty

I finished in 13:49 I think.   I had to do 2 rounds of penalties.  Once because it slipped the other cause I was tired.  I did kill the double unders though.
