3 rounds for time —

Tire flip x 100′ @ 3x – 4x body weight

Backward sled drag x 100′ (adjust weight so that the drag takes close to 60 seconds)

Rest 5 minutes

Post body weight, loads, and time to comments.  To calculate your time simply subtract 10 minutes (combined rest time) from your score.

I’ve decided to add some flavor to this site so the videos and pictures won’t just be strongman/fitness related.  Instead I’ll post an assortment of things that interest me.  If you have suggestions of things you’d like to see on the site send them my way.  rob@hybridathletics.net

2 thrusters EMOM x 15 minutes — racks allowed

Try to increase the load every minute.  Your final 3 rounds should be very close to your 1RM thruster.
