“Mamba & Gigi”
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 18 minutes of:
5 Ring Muscle-Ups
8 Power Cleans (185/125 lbs)
24 Box Jumps (30″/24″)
The “Mamba” workout originally posted in April 2016 and celebrated the career of NBA legend Kobe Bryant. It was 18 minutes for his 18 consecutive All-Star game appearances, 5 ring muscle-ups for the 5 NBA championship rings he earned with the Lakers, 8 power cleans for his jersey number from 1997-2006, and 24 box jumps for his jersey number from 2006-2016. Today we add 13 burpees in honor of his 13-year-old daughter Gianna, and join the entire world in mourning the loss of these incredible individuals, as well as the other lives lost in the tragic accident.
