5 x 50 Yard Prowler push/Sled Drag
Anyone at 6AM gets a sweet bonus before hand for the awesome mess that was left in the gym.
I cant wait for this!!!
Let me get this right. We’re pushing the Prowler (while) dragging the sled…right? This is going to be sweet at 6AM. Wake up the neighbors!
I will make sure I eat far enough in advance on this one. Glory be.
Prowler push 50yds down sled drag 50yrds back so it’s 10 trips of work
It’s “sweet, sweet baby jesus”…..
This should be fun to figure out how to sub
Push a truck pull a car
Definitely had a dream last night where zach made me push the prowler for a super long distance while I was blindfolded while he was of course in my ear screaming the whole time, it was just like in facing the giants when the coach makes the kid do the deathcrawal for the length of the field… Not quite sure what this means for today
I think it means you have full trust in your trainer and are blindly following him through the gates of Hell. Every time I blindly follow Z usually leads to good things or a Donnybrook in Husky stadium with big Husky legends…
Oh havent had a good Donnybrook in awhile…
Can we call this WOD “Sisyphus” ?
Being a huge fan of greek mythlogoy I’m ok with nicknaming the prowler Sisyphus
This WOD looked fun. It looked easy. It was on the first round. We made boy’s weight 2- 45’s and 2- 1.5pood KB’s on the prowler. The weight caught up to all of us. By round three I had the distinct sensation of fran thighs. By round 4 my glutes felt as though they had been injected with a concoction of novicaine and milk.
Props to Sarah and Gogo for shaming us at every turn this morning and pulling boy weight on the sled.
Old Country legs… Canada counts for someones OC I’m sure
Ha Ha. Loved the prowler!
How did you get that flag on there!
I want a custom moniker, NOOOOOOWWWWW!!!!

Zach wanted us to get this down.
Morning started with the 33 Burpee challenge. I think I finished in around 1:45. That sucked. What I didn’t realize was that was going to be the easiest part of the morning.
We loaded the Prowler with 2x#45 and 2 X#53 KBs. Sled was loaded with just 2x#45.
First push felt good. The pull back wasn’t hard just difficult to run backwards after all that pushing.
However, I noticed that there wasn’t really a comfortable position to stand in…no worries. Right?
Second push felt good. Pushing was going so well. Pull started to feel really shaky. Last thing I wanted to do was to ass plant on the run back.
Now the discomfort of standing was really setting in. Walked around a bit and realized that didn’t help either.
Third push got slow with 5 yards to go. Pull back just sucked. I just kept looking ahead and thinking “Baby steps, Baby steps…”
I mention to Sky that their is no fucking way to stand that doesn’t hurt. He tells me to lay down and gives me a quick leg rub. I lay there patiently waiting for my happy ending but it never comes. So, I get up. That helped a little.
Fourth push hurt the whole way. 10 yards out I’m thinking that this fucking sucks and that I hate Zach. I then remember that it was Margaux who suggested the additional KBs. Mental note – Revenge is best served cold. The Pull back was just a shit show and JoJo (My 5 year old) would have beat me. However, I did keep it going.
This rest period was really just a time for me to reflect on the pain and that I shouldn’t cry in front of the others.
Fifth push was okay. Kind of like the sprint at the end of a Marathon. I was at least going to make a good show of it. Took more baby steps back with the pull and then it was over.
First steps after felt like everything was jello. Things are a tad better now.
The good – Stuck with the full weight on the Prowler and finished each lap.
The bad – That hurt in a way that I’m not sure I can describe. I think Cole’s metaphor works well here. It’s like my legs grew balls and someone spent the morning kicking them….Thanks Zach.
Sky would you rub my feet when they hurt for me, you welcome Jim
Major quad pump today, felt like Ben Johnson in his prime.
Ben Johnson is Canadian!….out but wait. He got busted for steroids.
1. My post workout mobility WOD of sitting on a plane for 8 hours feels like crap.
2. I’ve never appreciated morning dew until today. Good luck this evening.
3. And where in the hell where the early morning rub downs going on???
Sky hands them out when no ones looking

Some may say this soul has went and found the man J.C.
I never have prayed for rain during a workout as much as today.
That dry field was “Pretty much like pushing a elephant dong through a key hole.” Said in the voice of Borat. Scott had to stop just towards the end of his first push and I knew I was fucked. I did two pushes with the heavy weight then listened to Scott to strip weight down.
“We lost a lot of good men that day…. Playing for the yankees?… Yeah trades angry fans I don’t want to talk about it….”
Gawd! I miss the prowler…..
I think I might have to get into ‘cutting’ or something, just to feel like I’m tearing into my soul so I can feel like one of you cool kids….. 😉
ok so you know craig, the guy that runs all the construction at the house? this morning as im making eggs he says to me:
“hey you know that place you work out at? the people there seem a lot different than the people that used to work out there. i dont know if its just the people that started there and now they’re super fit or what. the other day i went by and i saw a guy with a beard jumping on a 30 inch box”
That’s pretty effin funny and a great testimonial…
The beards lubing the deals
This group is pandering for handies like a Kazakhstanian Bobsled Team.
Like Borat on a PT table. . .
as im loading up 53# kbs jim goes: “um, did i miss something… why do we need kbs?”
you’ll thank me after the zombie invasion, jim. well… as long as the zombies dont come while you’re still recovering from the rabdomiolisis i probably gave you (not a std, google it).
Quote from corrie, “I’d have a baby 100 times over doing this” right after her last round… Haha awesome
Nothin like an afternoon sweatfest and being teased by 12 year olds in minituer foot ball gear…. or were those catcalls? Either way good time.
Decided to break out my stage name today as I’m the only one who ever puts my real name. anyways on to the workout.
Not much to say other than it sucked and I loved it. there is no morning dew in the evening.
Never felt older… than the moment i am pushing and pulling prowlers and sleds around and i hear one of the mini football players holler, “Hey- aren’t you Jackson’s mom”.
Ya! i am THAT old.
…and felt it, too.
The prowler owns…… nuf said
Quad birth does not feel good. All hail the prowler!
I love all of the commentary on the prowler.
The prowler changes lives…one soul at a time.
Prowler = death.
Ya I think its more: the prowler kills… One soul at a time 🙂
