A Story of Inches

I was at a bit of a loss as to what to do for a WOD tonight. I went to mainsite, got this one from a few years ago, and changed a couple things.

7 rounds of:

5 Handstand Pushups
10 "Change Plate" Deatlifts 185#
10 Chest to bar Pullups
1 Stone to Shoulder

For time

The WOD on mainsite called for normal deadlifts, and 20 double unders (instead of the Atlas stone), but I decided to make it a bit heavier on the weights.. I said it was because I've done a ton of double unders in my last few WODs... But maybe because I'm a glutton for punishment?

The "Change Plate" Deadlifts were inspired by the Crossfit Games Event 4. The two extra inches seems menial (as with the 2ish inches with the chest-to-bar pullups), but those few inches turned a tough WOD into a brutal WOD.

I'm also not the best when it comes to handstand pushups. They took me a while, but I did all of them required!
