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 […]

Weekly WOD Review 1/13/20

MONDAY  This was programmed around a year or so ago. I like this one as a regular re-test as there are multiple movements you can adjust and gauge improvement on whether you scale up or down the doubles, gymnastics, weight or run. As always, you can also keep everything exactly the same you did last […]

Weekly WOD Review 12/23/19

MONDAY For the “hang” focus, either position is fine. Starting at the pocket/hip works on the final vertical finish, getting tall, and working with less momentum, whereas starting at the knee, the focus is on maintaining hip loaded position longer, shoulders staying over the bar, and a good sweep of the bar in. I put […]

Weekly WOD Review 10/11/19

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 […]

Weekly WOD insight 6/24/19

Monday  The deadlift weight should be something that is pretty light for you. You should ideally be going unbroken on your deadlifts or at least very close to it. This one should be a quick burner!   A1.) Back Squat  4-4-4-4-4 *ascending*   A2.) Single arm Dumbbell Row  3x 10 ea side   B.) 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 Deadlift 135/95 (adv […]

Weekly WOD Insights 2/11/19

  MONDAY As always, I’d like all folks to work with extra care and focus on the skill work today. Shoulder taps should be slow and controlled, handstand holds should be extra “tight” with full body tension upside down, and if you do the foot taps, maintain hollow. I think coupling with a hollow hold […]

Boiling Point

I saw this nice little read that should resonate with a lot of folks out in the fitness and sport world on the concept of approaching “plateaus”. The author uses an analogy of one of life’s more simple tasks; boiling water, and connects it with how we should view training to get over the hump or […]

Weekly WOD Review 12/31/18

Happy New Year! 2018 brought some amazing experiences for me inside and outside the gym and hopefully, as I always do, you are able to take a moment to acknowledge the aspects that have helped you grow. As you look back on your year and note your wins and areas you’re striving to be better at, […]

Movement Refocused: Single Leg RDL progressions

When it comes to any movement, there are always ways to properly progress to said movement. Take the squat for example. We teach the air squat first, then the goblet squat, then the front or back squat, then the overhead squat. We start with just the most basic movement pattern, and then slowly start to […]
