PRVN Programming Cycle – Power

This week marks the start of a new 8-week cycle in our PRVN programming that we do for our workouts at CrossFit Sweat Shop. For those interested here is some additional insight. —– —— —— We are excited for you to take on our brand new 8 week cycle called the “Power Cycle”.  We will […]

Weekly WOD Overview – 11/14/22

  Monday Skill/technique is best trained in lower intensity environments, while “fitness” can be developed with low skill, high intensity environments.  For most of us, the limiting factor on olympic lifts is technique.  Improve the technique and your olympic lifting numbers will go up!  Once part A. is all done with, the skill needed for […]

WOD’s – Week of 9/5/22

  Monday Ground to Overhead means you have the option of doing either a clean & jerk, or a snatch.  Choose a version AND a weight that while warming up you can perform at least 6-8 consecutive reps with.  The cumulative effect of the ground to overhead, lunges and run will definitely take a toll […]

WOD Overview Week of 9/27/21

I really enjoyed the week I programmed back in June of this year, so here goes another week!   Monday For those still relatively new to olympic lifting (less than 1 year of experience) your focus should be on “chasing the feel” of a really good rep.  Then replicating that as many times as possible […]
