  1. Randy and I did this one last Friday and here is my take on it.

    135 lb jump squat was not that bad. It is just 10 reps but hold your form. 115 will be OK for the little guys 🙂
    The lunges are terrible (we used 35)
    The explosive step ups were 10 per leg and we used 20 lb DB (This is a great exercise and not as terrible as you might think) Try to drive with your heel off the box.
    Stiff legged deads will roast your back (we used a 25 and 22 on a side so we could go lower)
    We did the first round of bench runs at 10 reps per leg but that was too quick and easy and didn’t balance. We upped it to 30 per leg and it fit beautifully.

    This is a lung burner and I took a trip to the can to de-phlem a few times.

  2. Skill: sort of, did the best I could
    Metcon: yes, 135# Jumping Squats and 25# step ups. Last 2 rnds had to go to no weight on reverse lunges and back ext instead of deadlifts.
    row: yes, didn’t look at time.
