Weekly WOD Review 10/11/19

These guys putting their fitness to use!

MONDAY
Thanks to all the Veteran’s around the country especially our sweaty shoppers! I know a HERO WOD might be appropriate here, but given that I’m excited at ALL of the workouts this week (not that you need to do them all ;), this one should foot the bill and keep you fresh to start your week. We’ve done one almost identical to this last year, and am looking for the same effect. I’d like at least 8 minutes or so for the gymnastics AMRAP. For those needing scaling guides for push-ups, I always advise to either scale down the number of reps the entire time, OR, if you get to a point where you are doing slow/sketchy singles and want to keep intensity and maintain the cardiovascular effect of the workout, then band up at that point. It’s important to continue to do unassisted push-ups regularly if you have them, but if a workout gets you to a failure point where you can’t do them, it’ll defeat the purpose

Happy Veterans Day!
AMRAP in 20 Minutes
5 Rounds
200 Meter Run, Row, 10 Cal Bike or Ski or Air Runner

TUESDAY

Chris demoing his L-Sit with ease.

Go with the classic front squats today or work on your overhead squat. As you all will front squat more than you overhead squat, today is a nice opportunity to hone in your overhead squat if you have been looking to improve your snatches. What I want out of part A2 is a simple, yet, effective holding accessory and some sort of a benchmark you could retest easily. While heavy squats, bench press, and olympic lifts may be sexier, your ability to hold a challenging static position might help dictate how long you are able to continue to perform the aforementioned lifts.

For B, I don’t want focus on the whiteboard time, just push hard, and enter them in your notes. The efforts of sled or calories should be hard and the STO should be unbroken. The rest should be roughly 45-90 seconds. Grab your squad or buddy and push each other on these today!

A.)
Front Squat or Overhead Squat
3-3-3-3-3

A2.) At some point during A:
Accumulate 2 minutes of Plank Hold or L-Sit Holds
-Plank Hold ADV: Weighted
-L-Sit Hold Scaling: Rings, High Boxes, Parallettes on Low Boxes etc.

B.)
5 Rounds
70m Sled Sprint (Green/15#) (ADV: Green+15/Green) or 10/8 Calories on Any Machine (ADV: 12/10)
10 Shoulder To Overhead 95/65, (ADV: 115/75) (Beef: 10 HSPU or 8 Strict HSPU)
*Rest 45-90 seconds after each set

WEDNESDAY

How will you “construct” your WOD fate today?

Come with your brain and strategory (thanks Bush) today! My inspiration for this WOD was the final Open workout. Although I have not done it, it seems like folks liked having the option to chose their fate and come up with their own strategy. The only crappy part about the Open WOD is that most folks do not have muscle ups and some folks felt left out. Everyone can do movements in this workout, so have at it.

A) Skill Session
6:00 Alt EMOM
1) Scaps
2) Midline
-OR- Bar Muscle Up Drills for 6 minutes

B.)
Partition the middle work as desired.

THURSDAY

Coach DJ was not happy seeing Kea’s Farmer Carry sway. Be better than this on Part B!

Same format as Marko’s OLY session last week. The doubles early and singles later gives you option to either go a little heavier on singles, OR, more importantly, hitting the same weight you build up to on your doubles and dial them in with less stress/fatigue.
