Weekly WOD Review 12/16/19

Monday Just wanted to give all of you another opportunity to overhead squat if you opted to back squat instead a couple of weeks ago, or give those that overhead squatted a couple weeks ago a chance to build off of that. For the purpose of Part B, pick a weight that you can do[…]

Weekly WOD Review 11/4/19

Monday For double under scaling purposes, choose a rep scheme for double unders or single unders that allow you to complete them in no more than 1:00. Other than that, treat this chipper-esque AMRAP as a workout where your effort stays sub-maximal for a majority of the duration. My go to cue[…]
