Equipment required:  1 x barbell per person with necessary weights

Warm-up and instruction: 10 minutes total - demo movements and then everyone practices each; this morning I will select cadets to demo and provide points of performance for the Air make sure you review in advance!!

Deadlift - demo (Matt) and points of performance (Adam)
Air squat - demo (randomly selected cadet) & points of performance (randomly selected cadet)


Today's WOD comes from Leigh Gust's blog.  They do some awesome WODs...check out their site.

For time and reps:

Max reps of push-ups
2 x deadlift (275/185)
50 x air squats (touch and go w/ butt on the medicine ball)
4 x deadlift
40 x air squats
6 x deadlift
30 x air squats
8 x deadlift
20 x air squats
10 x deadlift
10 x air squats
Max reps of push-ups

NOTE:  Scale as needed, the deadlifts are heavy!

Scoring - Convert your completion time to seconds.  Subtract the total number of push-ups from your overall time.  Like golf, a lower score is better.  For example, if it took you 10 minutes (600 seconds) to complete and you did 50 push-ups and then 40 push-ups, your score would be: 600 seconds - 90 push-ups = 510 // ANS

Post score to comments.
