Very first WOD and he did it as rx'd. He's either an actual athlete, or stupid. Or both.

I just thought about how stupid this workout was though. 25 ghd sit ups + 5 push jerks x 5 rounds.

Best case scenario with the GHDs is fatiguing of the trunk. Worst case is the development of rhabdo.

couple the fatiguing and resulting inability to "stabilize the midline" with heavy overhead explosive movement?

What about the potential for spinal injury in addition to the shoulder injuries that can result? Wow.
