“A Laborious Love”
Climb as high up the following ladder or reps as possible in the time allotted;

12:00 Time Cap vs

Overhead Squats (95/65lbs)
x 3-6-9-12… +3 reps per round

Wall Walks
x 2-2-2-2 … Same # per round


  • Scaled Wall Walks to a halfway pike position or without moving the hands during the ascent with feet up the wall are two ways to scale the movement.
  • At its most functional mirror we could also put heels to the wall and inchworm our into a plank pushup and then lay flat on the ground; perform a Push-up and walk the hands to the feet before repeating for a second rep.
  • Overhead Squats in development may be substituted x 2 for rep load and be performed as a reverse lunge in place with a bar or bumper plate locked out and stabilized overhead.
  • Power snatches and Front Squats would be one step further on the scaling arc.
