But this was my Thanksgiving turkey, and I can pretty much guarantee it was better than yours.[/caption] 3 Rounds for time: (10) Body-weight Front Squats 75 Air Squats "Body-weight" implies putting the amount that you weigh on the bar. I weight 165 lbs. so I would be squatting 165 lbs. I know, seems simple and obvious, but you'd be surprised. Additionally, this workout is named The Stanky Leg for the physical response it will likely elicit in your lower half. If you've ever seen a cool guy rocking this move on the dance floor and been jealous of his skills and/or angry at your lack there of, worry not! By completing this workout, you will immediately begin to wobble around the room with every attempted step. Voila, you're doing the stanky leg. Post thoughts and times to "comments".

    FYI-this is like the most draining workout I have ever done here.

    Man, I’m not sure if I can do a bodyweight front squat for 10 reps…

    Report from San Francisco: just did 6 rds 30 air squat, 10 pullup (w/band for me), 5 clean and jerk (63 lbs). 21:24. Tyler, you’ve taught us our lifts well — I got a compliment on my form. Glad I could get to a class even if it’s not at your old gym; this meeting I’m at has me scheduled up from 8am-10pm every day.

    who is “tom”? is he new?

    Have tickets to gopher/sioux game so I wasn’t planning on doing the WOD. Since the WOD looked so good, I went to target for some workout clothes to do it in my work’s basement.

    165# 11:59
    (82.5% body weight)

    Bank and hips are sore from yesterday

    But will Mr. MU be able to live up to his name after doing the stanky leg?? Hmmmmm.

  5. Stephanie says:

    Uh, who is this Mr. Muscle Up?

    Finished this one in 10:37 with 63# (52.5% of bodyweight).

    And by the way, I had an “orphan” Thanksgiving since I couldn’t fly home to Texas, but IF I had flown home, I assure you my Turducken would eat your turkey for breakfast. Just sayin’

    Pretty sure I feel down your front stairs and caught myself on the glass doors afterwards. Great WOD.

  11. Ian says:

    Being macho and trying to keep up with the Matt Monster was a bad idea

  12. Mr. Muscle Up says:

    14:54, RxD (190 lbs). Now, for more muscle ups….

  13. Steve Schmidt says:

    11:22. Forgot my time. Should have been doing 150-175 on squats. Next time. I cannot walk right today. At all.

  14. Nick says:
