Weekly WOD Review 7/1/19

Monday
Name of the game for today’s main workout will be focusing on constant movement. In this workout, the volume is relatively low making it possible for everyone to just keep moving. Try and jog right to the wall balls, transition quickly to the sit ups/hanging knee raises/toes to bar, and jog right out of the gym and onto the run again. For most, this is completely doable! If running, wall balls, or sit ups/hanging knee raises/toes to bar aren’t your jam, break them up and try and keep your heart rate down while performing the movements that you’re still working on. Should be a good one, enjoy!

3 Rounds
603m Run (800m)

I really enjoy the 1:30 format for EMOMs when in comes to our weightlifting movements. For me, I enjoy getting the longer rest and it helps me to focus on different parts of the movement instead of being so out of breath! I encourage all of you to take advantage of the extra rest to help dial in the Clean & Jerk today. For those that feel comfortable with the movement, challenging yourself and go for the “Across” version at 85% of your 1RM. It’s a good test to see if you can be consistent from one rep to the next.
Taking it back to pull ups for all levels in today’s finisher. For those that are going Adv and Beefy, this is a good opportunity to work on some volume for your pull up skill. Please take note of the different rep schemes of pull ups as well for all levels down below!

Time to get some rope climbs in today, you guys have been putting in some serious work over the past couple weeks with the rope climbs work outs so let’s keep it going! If you’re still getting the hang of rope climbs, I encourage you to try and get them down sooner rather than later. If rope climbs are your jam, think about doing them towards the end of the workout and really put them to the test! Either way, 5 rounds seems like a lot but you all are more than capable of smashing through it! More than anything, try and play those mental games with yourself and stay head strong through the 5 rounds. Remember, you all have it in you to crush this one!

    Hey Guys – would it be possible for you to do a blog post on the various skill emom options available. It would be helpful for me and maybe others to look at and then decide what movements to perform before class.
