Weekly WOD Overview

  Monday Rather than 15 minutes straight AMRAP this one is broken up with just a little run and some double unders.  Even though it’s not the same movement pattern, the double unders can still make the pullups and pushups challenging, so Rx’d, ADV. and BEEF folks should break up[…]

Weekly WOD Insight 5/21/18

Monday We’ll start off with our weekly olympic EMOM where our focus is on dialing in the technique of the Clean & Jerk, or if you choose, the Snatch.  If you’re still relatively new to either of these lifts, definitely stick with the two reps on the minute.  For those[…]
