Overhead Squat 8-5-5-3-3-3-3

WOD

3 Rounds for Time of

15 Pull-Ups
30 Wall Ball Shots 20/14lbs 10/9′
400M Run

Workout Notes: This workout is 3 rounds of 3 movements that decrease in difficulty for each round.  Be careful with the pull-ups because they fall off fast when you hit failure but you can definitely use this workout to test your limits.  If a set of 15 is in your wheelhouse go for it and use the rest of the round as recovery for the pull-ups.  You’ll feel really strong on that first set but after that try working with a set size you can sustain.  30 Wall Ball Shots will take about a minute when done unbroken but if that ruins your run add some rest there too!
