BraveO says hi!

Mobility WOD

“Kalsu”
Every minute on the minute do 5 burpees then fill the remaining time with 135 pound thrusters. Goal is to hit 100 total thrusters.  Score total time.

25 minute cut-off, so please scale intelligently.  3 or 5 burpees per round - also thruster goal can be 50, 75, or 100.  Compare to 6/21/2013.




Welbourn:Some history about the man the workout is named for, Bob Kalsu. Bob was an NFL football player who died while serving in Vietnam. He was an All-American Offensive Tackle out of the University of Oklahoma. He was drafted in the 8th round in 1968, started for the Bills for one season and then in 1969 to fulfill his ROTC duties he shipped out for Vietnam. He was killed in action on July 21, 1970 in the A Shau Valley.
 
The mastermind behind the workout was one of the original guinea pigs for the football program, Andy Stumpf. I met Andy through his work with the CrossFit Level 1 Certification. Andy and I became fast friends and we ended up being training partners on many occasions. I remember one such workout where Andy, myself, Jimi, Dave and Jolie were crushed by Allison NYC. To this day we won’t let it be forgotten.
