#Please view previous comments on how to do this WOD. There is a rest period between 15-12-9. Do everything you can to not drop the bar.

 *Touch and go at floor only. Choose a weight that will be challenging and something you think you can complete. The idea is to complete the first round (15) without dropping the bar or resting it on the ground. You can rest it anywhere on your body but when it touches the ground in between reps it is only for a fraction of a second (touch and go). Rest as long as you need between sets (~5 minutes).

For you ladies: You should attempt at least your 80#/135# weight you use for those WOD's. If you use 75#, then give that a shot. Good Luck.

 This is not a timed event but I would like you to time it for curiosity. Please post load (weight) and total time with your rest periods. You will be amazed at how difficult this is.

Heather 13:20 80#
15 ( 9,3,3)
12 (5,4,3)
9 (4,3,2)
I didn't want to do less than 80 cause I knew I could do it. Tried resting it on my chest but I was so tired I couldn't do it. Had to drop it.
Paul 9:00 135#
Unbroken on all sets. Unbelievable!

@ Heather - The best way to rest this is by holding it against your waistline while doing a quarter squat. Your legs end up holding the brunt of the weight.

Ok. Got it. Thanks!

Morgan- 6:19 65#

I was able to this unbroken but I had to take 2 minute rests in between sets. I actually thought I'd be fine with 1 minute rests but after each set I just knew I wasn't ready to begin another unbroken set if I'd started then. I'd like to try it again in a week or so with 75# and see if I can still go unbroken with longer rests...

Forgot to mention I did 20 more turkish getups. Now at 150.
