For time
10 Rounds
200m Run
15 Sumo deadlift high pulls (75lbs/55lbs)
15 Wall ball shots (20lbs/14lbs to a 10’/9′ target)

This is a relatively long-duration workout, although some may be able to complete it in less than 20:00 if they are really pushing the pace. The load on the high pulls is light and should allow for all rounds to be completed unbroken or with one quick rest break. A great goal is to strive for all athletes is under 30:00.


Movement Modifications
*Reduce distance if each run will take longer then 1:45.

Sumo Deadlift High Pull
*Reduce weight if the athlete will need more then 2 sets.

Wall Ball Shots
*Reduce weight to allow for nearly all rounds to be completed unbroken.
