Workout of the Day
Complete for time:
- 100 thrusters (135/93#)
Complete 5 burpees at the start of each minute.
Time Cap = 30 minutes.
WOD Notes: Kalsu is an infamous CrossFit benchmark! It is unique in that the longer it takes to finish, the more work you have to do in the form of 5 more burpees every minute. Be sure to pick smart scales/modifications and be willing to adjust on the fly! If you’re not a fan of burpees, consider a few number (i.e., 3/round) or modify to plank burpees. Pick a thruster weight where you can do 10 in a row when fresh, and even when tired you can hit 3-5/round. Start with manageable sets and don’t let up! (5 thrusters/round would have this done in 20 minutes… a piece of cake!) We’ve never done Kalsu at ICA, but we did Partner Kalsu 5 years ago (160423), Inverse Kalsu 6 years ago (150424), and Half Kalsu 7.5 years ago (131216)!
Event Notes: Mark your calendars for May 7-9, for the Age Group Online Qualifier! This is the 2nd level of competition for age group athletes (14-17 and 35+ years old) who qualified based on the CrossFit Open. We have 7 athletes who qualified , and most will do the workouts (called “tests”) on Friday between classes (10am-12pm & 1pm-3pm) and Saturday/Sunday starting at 11am. If you’re interested in watching and cheering, spectators are welcome!
Community Notes: Happy birthday Joe S!
