Hi, friends!

I did an awesome driveway WOD over the weekend, so I wanted to share it with you guys. To do this workout, you only need two pieces of equipment (plate + dumbbell) and a little bit of space. (You could also sub the dumbbell for the plate for the walking lunges.)


I brought the necessary equipment outside, played some tunes, and then got to work while my favorite guys kept me company in the driveway. I had an audience for this workout! Haha!


When I asked Mal what I should call this workout, he immediately said “mac & cheese” because he was chowing down on a bowl of it. I know he was joking, but it sounded like a good WOD name to me!

For the dumbbell snatches, I used a 25-pound dumbbell.

And for the walking lunges, I used a 15-pound plate.

Mal actually did this workout last week and warned me it was really tough, so he suggested that I reduce the number of reps. I’m still getting back into things, so I started with 15 reps of each exercise and worked my way down to 3 reps of each. (Basically, I just cut out the sets of 21 and 18.)

I’m so glad that I scaled this workout because the combination of running, dumbbell snatches, and walking lunges KICKED MY BUTT. The workout took me less than 15 minutes to complete, but I definitely have some work to do in the coming weeks! It’s okay though. I know I’ll get there.
