Workout Memorial Week day 3: "Winters"

Well today took me to the limit. The first time I've attempted an Rx'd weight "Kalsu". Thank you Robert Kalsu for you service and inspiration. 
Previous completed efforts were at 75lbs and 95lb with 4 burpees. Both were around 20mins. 
Every round compounds the next. The 5 burpees really start to compound your shoulde/tricept degradation around round 8-9. You are gassed and weak, yet you have get those burpees done with enough time to make the thrusters worthwhile and rest. Each round add a power clean to get the bar racked and then get that thing over head from the bottom squat position. It plain sucks, it is a relentless beast of a workout. 
51 reps in was my breaking point and my body brought the workout to an end by means of the now non-virgin CFC puke bucket. 
We forge on tomorrow for day 3 of Memorial week. 

Tomorrow: "Winters" Named after Lancaster native and of "Band of Brother" fame Maj. Dick Winters. 

4 rounds in weighted vest: 
800m run
21 burpees
10 pull ups
5 handstand push-ups
