Three rounds for time:

10 Man-makers, 40# (25#)

50 Double unders

A single man-maker is comprised of a DB push-up, renegade row (each hand once), dumbell squat clean to a thruster.  The woman-maker version is exactly the same.

Post time and thoughts to comments.

Alas, we've found the key to lower back stength – horseback riding!  Since we obviously cannot afford a horse for every athlete in the class, we've decided to test out a prototype iGallup.  Please let us know what you think and be sure to wear some chaps.


  1. Dan :

    Holy crap I thought this was a spoof ad. Awesome that it is a real product. Trade out the GHD for it?

  2. I knew those chaps I packed in my backpack would come in handy for something.
    Emmalee, you´re such a stud! Cool pic!

  3. tiffany :

    outfits included? i always needed to add “white cowboy boots” to my wardrobe!

  4. Tiff :

    this workout kicked my ask….

  5. Amy Schaeffer :

    I can’t wait to become a real man at tonight’s WOD.
    Also, I would try the iGallop on the condition that I get to wear spurs on my Adidas high tops

  6. Cherie :

    Tiff – pretty funny.
    I’ll be back in the gym today and feeling pretty strong all things considered.
    Day four on zone/paleo, 11 blks, even had two red bridges last night (I have added unsweetened plain yogurt as a non paleo food). I was very surprised at how my portion size had crept up on me. I was eating way more than 11blks on Paleo. More like 20 when I should have been at about 15. Biggest thing I’ve been missing is the unlimited fat blocks. 1/2tsp of almond butter only wets the palette. Otherwise it feels great to have my food under control again. I’ve even taken to black coffee brewed with cinnamon. I never thought I’d drink black coffee.
    With a total of 27 pounds to lose I will keep you all posted as to my progress. I’m hoping to fit into my normal pants by the end of the month.
    Thanks for all the support guys – love you all.
    Amy – Jared , what no Vegas stories?
    Tammer – be safe and we expect great progress out there in Cali.
    Danimal – Hope your having a blast. Send us a CF picture of you down there.

  7. Gerson M :

    I’ll share my spurs but NOT my chaps… j/k

  8. James :

    I think that video just made me a man.
    Does that mean I don’t have to do the workout?

  9. I don´t have a jump rope so i just did 40 man-makers strait though. and let me say, OH MY GOD! Those suck. Such a good workout though. It took me just under 15 minutes I think.
    these were supposed to be 40# each hand right?
    Cherie, I´ll definately get some good pics. It was pretty funny just now at the little local gym I go to. It´s the type of place that macho guys try and become the next Arnold, spending countless hours on a single set of muscles on old machines that probably came out of the 70s. The exercises I do there are more than a little strange. Even deadlifts get a scrunched up, on looking face or two as I move around machines to make room. Anyway, today when I did the man-makers the whole gym literally stopped what they were doing to watch. haha, yeah I´m definately the crazy gringo here. haha.
    Miss you all!

  10. Sherry :

    Tiff, I have white cowboy boots you can borrow.
    Cherie, I’m inspired that you’re going to keep us updated on your weight loss. Maybe I can pace you with my own…. maybe.
    Dan, it’s so fun to read your notes and comments here too!
