Day 2 Recap of The Iron Pirate Games

Day 2 picked up right where Day 1 left off.  Intensity, Pain, intestinal fortitude, stamina, competitiveness, and vomit highlighted today’s WOD – “The Holy War”.

The Holy War was the brainchild of Coach O’Neill, as it consisted of a team tire carry from the weight room down the parking lot hill to the baseball field, a sprint back to the weight room that started a series of exercises for each team, with only one team member allowed to go at one time.  Those movements were 80 pullups, 300 butt to medball air squats, 200 hand release pushups and 100 thrusters at 95 pounds.  Once those movements were completed, the team would sprint back down to the tire and carry it back up to the weight room.  Of course, the team that completed it the fastest, won the event.

As we always do, we began the day with a smaller event with points going towards Team Iron Pirate and Individual Iron Pirate.  Yesterday’s first event was a 3:00 AMRAP of butterfly situps.  The goal is to do as many reps as possible (AMRAP) in 3 minutes.

In this event, John Holland edged Matt Evenson, Dylan Lee and Tyler Welch with 146 reps, while the other three tied with 145.  It was the most exciting 3 minutes in all of sports as these athletes worked their cores to the core.

After recovering from the Core WOD, the teams moved on to compete in The Holy War, and it was a war indeed, as a battle of wills ensued amongst the competitiors.  Some of the more impressive feats of the day were Cam Sperry knocking out 25 pullups right out of the gate, Small Time Timmy Jim Kennedy crushing 105 unbroken air squats, and Huntbo Mitchell absolutely destroying the thrusters.

Once the smoke had cleared, we once again had a very close race between 1st and 6th as a mere 2:13 separated the pack.  However in the end, Team Martin prevailed in The Holy War.
