Honey Badger

Posted Feb 29 2012 8:33pm

The honey badger is the most “badass” creature in nature.  It just doesn’t give a sh*t.  The Honey badger or ratel is a tenacious small carnivore that has a reputation for being, pound for pound, Africa’s most fearless animal despite its small size .  In fact the Guinness Book of World Records calls it “the most fearless animal in the world.

WOD:

3 Rounds for time (30 min. max):

F*CK!!  “It’s pretty badass.”

This was hellacious.  If I was the quitting type (which stubbornly I refuse to be…if you know me you know all too well why I stayed in law school even though I hated it), I would have quit this.  HFS.

The first round was tough, and I knew it was only going to get worse.  It took me over 9 minutes to complete the first round!  I was so surprised.

“It’s like nothing happened…Honey Badger just gets right up.”

After the first round I was told to do 20 of each exercise.  I had a lot of obnoxious comments to get me through, raw, ripped up hands to show for it and a strap thong to always remember Honey Badger by.  What is a strap thong you ask?  In the middle of a set of pull ups, I managed to lose control of the band I was using, and it went right in between my legs, snapping me in the front and back.  I have lovely bruises to show from it, and the memory of everyone laughing at me :) .  Hey, I think it’s a rite of passage!!

Overall, this was one of the hardest workouts ever, and I’m glad I won’t be seeing this beast anytime soon.  I literally finished my last burpee, stood up to clap at the top, screamed “time” (28:57) and then laid myself down on the floor and tried to stop the world from spinning.
