Weekly WOD Review 7/26/21

GO GET-EM COACH BREEZY! MONDAY This workout is a more chunky version of the benchmark cindy but with some runs/rows to give you a break on the bigger sets. Sorry, you know this is a JB go to. Forced cardio rest ;). Feel free to work with the coach on scaling options for push and […]

MONDAY If doing the strength option, compare the last 2 weeks. We will be doing heavy doubles next week. The cardio option is for those looking to hit some heavier reps under slight fatigue. While I myself have hit some of my best lifts after a run buy in, if you’ve never done that format […]

MONDAY On this “holiday after a holiday” chipper, those going rxd and adv have an option to partition the long run as you see fit.

MONDAY Compare your last 3 weeks on the oly cycle for this week. Last week, I was a little overzealous in trying to fit a heavy metcon with the oly lifts so here’s our familiar format. Use this as a test to see how the drills and training workout for you this cycle. Channel your […]

MONDAY The sneaky part of this workout is that while the later cardio portions are shorter, the deads/du/and pushups get a little more taxing. Choose a weight on deadlifts that can be done in 1-2 quick sets. As far as jump rope, you might notice that the reps are a little higher than normal for […]

ZOOM video Account.. suspended until further notice! The fans and tv ratings have spoken! MONDAY For this particular workout, I am looking for each section to take around 10-12 minutes. Mix and match to your skill set and if you’d like to ascend weights and are not doing beefy, work with the coach on what […]
