DESCRIPTION

STIMULUS

Time: 21:00 for our Heavy day, and <=7:00 for "Fastball".
Category: Heavy Day!

Goal: Increase loading across all 9 sets and establish a heavy single front squat for the day.

For Part 2: We are looking for a high speed sprint! 7:00 or less is the target for today!

FRONT SQUAT E2MOM

We are building to a heavy single front squat. If you know your 1RM Front Squat, you can think about starting your first work set at ~70-75% and increase the loading across the 5 sets. We call this a load ascending rep scheme. All sets count, even if all reps are not completed (eg., if on set #6 the athlete only complete 2 out of 3 reps, the athlete will count that set (make a note in WODify), and proceed.

RUN

400m Run should be completed in less than 2:00. If athletes will take longer than that, scale distance to 200m and try to push the intensity! Athletes can substitute:

30/24 cal Bike

500/400m Row or Ski

WALLBALLS

40 Wallballs should be completed in less than 2:00, and ideally in no more than 2 sets. If that is not doable for an athlete, then have them scale to a load that allows for no more than 2 sets.

EFFICIENCY TIPS

This little sprint is all grit. Encourage athletes to hit the first 400m at an aggressive but not sprint pace. Then, a couple big breaths, and on to their WallBalls for a big set. If they have to break, that’s fine…but they shouldn’t get caught staring at the ball. Encourage them to get BACK to it – they never have to touch the MedBall again after they’re done!

That final 400m should be everything they have. It will take a couple steps for their legs to feel normal, but everything after that should be * *GO **.

DESCRIPTION

STIMULUS

Time: 20 minutes

Category: Sprint!

Goal: To complete each round between 2:00-2:30. 3:00 is the longest we should need to go.

Score: The slowest round. Log times for all 5 rounds.

CALORIES FAN BIKE

15/12 calories should take ~1:00. If we cannot complete this number of calories in under 1:15, reduce the number of calories.

Scales

20/15 calories Bike Erg or Row

15/12 Ski Erg

DUMBBELL HANG POWER CLEAN

12 Dumbbell Hang Power Cleans should take less than 30-seconds. If we cannot complete 12 unbroken repetitions for multiple sets, reduce the load or reps.

Scales

Reduce load and/or reps

Single Arm DB Hang Power Cleans

Use a barbell (if necessary)

Kettlebell Swings to eye-level

BURPEE BOX JUMP OVER

9 Burpee Box Jump Overs should take ~1:00. If we cannot complete 9 reps within 1:00 reduce the number of repetitions and/or lower the height of the box BEFORE opting to step.

Scales

Reduce reps/height of the box

Burpee Step Overs

Burpee Broad Jumps

EFFICIENCY TIPS

Calorie Fan Bike Move at a sustainable pace! It’s hard to tell each athlete what that is. But, any movement is forward progress, even if slower. Slower is better than stopping.

Dumbbell Hang Power Clean: A narrow stance will help keep the DB’s closer and feel lighter. Capitalize on the downwards momentum with a fast turnaround (swing) at the bottom. Don’t stop at the bottom.

Burpee Box Jump Over: As with the Bike, moving slowly is better than not moving at all. Breath when stepping down and/or turning around before going to the ground. But, remember after the 9 reps, we rest! Be uncomfortable and earn your rest!

Rounds 3 and 4 will be the toughest so BRING YOUR A-GAME MINDSET & EMBRACE THE SUCK!

DESCRIPTION

STIMULUS

Time: 8-12 minutes

Category: Threshold

Goal: 1:00-1:30 rounds for the first part / 1-3 sets for 30 Overhead Squats

Score: The time it takes to complete the workout

DOUBLE UNDERS

30 Double Unders should take less than 45-seconds every round. Unbroken will take ~20-seconds.

100 Double Unders should take between 1-2 minutes.

OVERHEAD SQUATS (LIGHT)

10 Overhead Squats should take less than 30-seconds every round. Unbroken will take ~:20-seconds

30 Overhead Squats should take less than 2 minutes

EFFICIENCY TIPS

Double Unders: Relax the shoulders and move through the wrists. As the name states, even with only a small number of reps, a tight and stressed grip will compound quickly!! If you need a quick break, take it.

Overhead Squat: The trap is to move too quickly! We can move quickly when the barbell is in the ‘sweet spot’, but any deviation will steal a lot of energy to re-position the overhead position. Yes move fast! But, how fast? As fast as you can keep the arms straight, bar balanced WHILE achieving full depth.

DESCRIPTION

STIMULUS

Time: 9:00 + Heavy Lift (Single Power Snatch)

Category: Threshold

Goal: 4-6 rounds

Score: The number of rounds/reps accumulated in 9:00 + heaviest load lifted on Power Snatch

TOES TO BAR

15 Toes to Bar should take less than 1:00 and cleared in 2-4 sets.

Scaling:

Decrease repetitions

Decrease the range of motion (Toes to Air or Knees High)

Knee Raises

V-Ups / Sit-Up

DEADLIFTS

10 Deadlifts should take less than 20-seconds and cleared in 1-2 sets.

Scaling:

Decrease the load

Deadlift from an elevated platform/from plates

Dumbbell or Kettlebell Deadlifts

POWER SNATCH

5 Power Snatch should take less than 30-seconds and can be performed unbroken, but may opt for fast singles.

Scaling:

Decrease the load

Hang Power Snatch or Muscle Snatch

Alternating Dumbbell Power Snatch (or DB Hang Power Snatch) (50/35 for 10 reps)

Use a clean variation – power or hang

EFFICIENCY TIPS

Toes to Bar:**Break the Toes to Bar early. Think 3 sets of 5 or 5-4-3-3. The trap is too hang on for big sets and blow up the forearms early on. This workout is grip intensive! Rest before you need to. **Deadlift:**Adopting a mixed grip will be beneficial for this workout. Keep an active shoulder, but try to not death grip the bar. The loading is light enough that a “white knuckle fury” grip will not be necessary. **Power Snatch: Another sneaky trap! The loading is light enough to lull you into unbroken reps or sets of 3+2, but it will require grip and grip you will need for TTB and Deadllifts. Fast singles will be a smart option for today….until the last minutes where we go dark and hang on the heck on 😉

DESCRIPTION

STIMULUS

This is a 25:00 workout with 20:00 of work and a long 5:00 of rest.

Category: Threshold

Goal: For AMRAP#1 and #2 we can aim to accumulate 5+ rounds. Proficiency in the HSPU and heavier Deadlift will see some athletes with 7+ rounds.

Score: Sum total of rounds and reps accumulated for each AMRAP.

ROW (CALS)

15/12 calories should take between 45-60 seconds.

STRICT HSPU

9 reps unbroken should take less than 20 seconds. If we choose to do 9 reps for the workout, we should be able to easily perform all 9 in no more than 3 sets for each round and under 1:00.

DEADLIFT

9 moderately heavy Deadlifts should take less than 20 seconds unbroken. For each round the Deadlift should be completed in no more than 2 sets and less than 1:00.

EFFICIENCY TIPS

Every time you get on the Rower, just start rowing. This sounds obvious, but starting is half of the battle. Depending on whether you’re coming off the HSPU/DB Press or the Deadlift, the arms or legs will feel more fatigued. Whichever function feels fresher (pulling with the arms or pushing with the legs), have that be the predominant mover until you are able to find your flow.

Break the HSPU’s early and take quick breaks. DO NOT go to fatigue, this will slow you down considerably.

The first pull of the Deadlift it again half the battle! Respect it and get it off the ground. If form breaks, take a rest. The risk is not worth the reward. We are shooting for 2-3 quick sets OR unbroken for some athletes, if the loading is appropriate.
