    This WOD’s simplicity is very deceptive! Don’t let it fool you into thinking it’s easy because it is not! I like this WOD a lot because it’s a mental test more than anything! My advice to you is to really warm up your hamstrings pre-WOD and STRETCH STRETCH STRETCH when you are done — if you do stretch, you can thank me on Thursday. 🙂

    11:23. Note- don’t do back squats and then think you can go out and actually run the next morning. I thought someone hit the slow-motion button on me after the last set of air-squats.
