Ty Hanson shared this with me this morning: Men’s Fitness – The 6 Most Brutal CF WODs. I have no idea why, but I got a little excited about it. As I began to share it with a few people, I got the exact same response: “Oh yeah, I saw that a while ago.”
WHAT THE EFF, PEOPLE!?
My WOD made number six on the list of the all-time-most-elitest (that also means it was dead last, btw), and none of my friends could even take the time to mention it to me? For me this is like winning a Teen Choice award for best screenplay in a foreign film (think about it…).
That’s it. Ty Hanson, you are officially my new besty. Buy a Harley, and some Lulu.
Editorial note: “Filthy Fifty” is NUMBER ONE? Are you effing kidding me? It has Jumping Pull-ups, and Back Extensions. Congrats Men’s Fitness, you really know your stuff. You’ve given the title of “most brutal WOD ever” to a workout that has a scaled movement – Jumping Pullups (which btw, is one of the best movements ever…if you want to catch Rhabdo), a warmup movement – Back Extensions, weighted jumping jacks – 45# Push Press, and the most cheated on movement in the history of exercise – Knees to Elbows. Maybe you guys should stick to the “Six-Pack Abs in 2 Minutes a Day”, and “Put 7 Inches on your Arms in One Week” stuff. “Fran” is #1, “Murph” is #2, period. Call an expert the next time you want to jump on the bandwagon four years too late.
