"Lite" Linda
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of:
BB Deadlift (135#)
DB Bench Press (2 35# DBs)
DB Clean (2 30# DBs)

We had originally wanted to do "Linda" as Rx'd but there weren't enough bars to go around (the perennial problem with this workout, according to most people). So we did a light version of "Linda" instead, subbing DBs for BBs and adjusting the weight as necessary (something tells me that the suck factor of doing cleans with 2 40# DBs is a lot higher than doing cleans with a 80#). It's always hit-or-miss with the IMSB in the mornings, though -- it hasn't seemed like there have been a lot of people working out at 6:00 am lately, but today the whole men's lacrosse team (doing a badly mangled version of the "Filthy Fifty", no less), and a smattering of other early risers meant that we wouldn't be able to monopolize the Olympic bars as per our original intentions. Oh well. I'm betting that the best time to do "Linda" will be during the study period prior to exams, when students pull all-nighters fueled by pizza and beer, and pretty much toss all healthy intentions out of the window. And at 6:00 am? Pshaw, there'll be no one at the gym then.
