Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 13 minutes:
55 deadlifts
55 wall-ball shots
55-calorie row
55 handstand push-ups (rx’d; scaled: hand-release push-ups)

Some said „just boring and stupid“. Some were afraid remembering the pain from last year. And for some it was PR-time doing their first Handstand push-ups! In any case it left all of us dizzy.

The Team Ranking after that killer:

The internal Team-Ranking-battle is getting serious:

We had great times! Like celebrating St.Patricks Day:

We cried and laughed together…

…suffered and relaxed…

…because rest is important…


Four down. One more to go…

See you all on Saturday!

2:30pm – the final at CF Basel- BBQ and Drinks!

Stay strong and don’t forget: sometimes it’s good to see things backwards, inside out, and upside down.

Thanks to Mike Wolff and Manu for the pics!
