Announcements - Welcome back to the reunion classes of 2007, 2002, 1997, 1992, 1987, 1982, 1977, etc.!!  If you are in town and interested in getting after it, come on down to Arvin Gym, '62 Room, at 0530.  If you are not still in the Army, please bring your Old Grad credentials in order to get in Arvin.

Equipment needed:  1 x bench set up per pair + 1 x barbell for partner Deadlifts

Warm-up & instruction - Personal warm-up goes from 0530 - 0540 and then Matt & Adam will brief and demo the WOD.  After that, everyone will have 10 minutes to practice the movements and continue to warm-up.

WOD:  Today's WOD is a partner WOD!!!   Pick someone who is about the same size and ability as you are and get after it!  If we end up with an odd number of folks, we will figure it out!

12 x bench press (load = average body weight of you and your partner) [Partner A does bench, Partner B spots, once 12 reps are complete, switch roles]
12 x partner deadlift (315 lbs = 3 x 45 plates per side) - scale weight as needed & focus on fundamentals of the deadlift!  Don't rush to your limits and scale smartly!

Post partners name and number of rounds complete to comments.

Tom Hinds and I partnered up and completed 3 rounds + 11 partner DLs.

Bench for me 185 lbs. and Tom did half at 135 and other half at 115.

Good times and bench got tough!!
