Weekly WOD puns 8/2/21

Monday  I wod you all to be able to work on your contact point in cleans or snatches. You might be asking yourself, wod is the point of clean pull? The idea behind the clean pull is you can focus on making solid contact with the right area with the barbell, without having to worry […]

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 7/19/21

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 […]

Weekly WOD Review 7/12/21

MONDAY If you’ve followed my monthly formula the last year, I’m very much a fan of the short rep, 10 set format. You have to pace to not blow up, but the reps allow you to stay moving at a relatively high HR throughout the workout. Given that the reps are short, transitions should be […]

Weekly WOD Review 7/5/21

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. For you aggressive runners, today is the day to go UNPARTITIONED (my fav new crossfit word). For most, this workout should take 20-25 minutes whereas the 1.5 mile runners and […]

WOD Overview 6/28/21

It’s been a little over one year since I’ve programmed an entire week for the Sweat Shop, but I recently used some extra time I had on a plane to do just that.  While it’s a challenging and very time consuming process to develop workouts for a large group of people with wide ranging goals, […]

Weekly WOD Review 6/21/21

Monday If you attended class last week, you have another chance to practice your Push Jerks today. If you feel comfortable with the Push Jerk, or if you would like to learn the Split Jerk, you’re more than welcome to do that as well! Similar to the past few weeks, you’ll have the option to […]

Weekly WOD Review 6/14/21

Monday Today’s workout is similar to one that was programmed last week. With both sections being ten minutes in length, make sure you understand when you need to slow down to catch your breath and when to push the pace. You’ll get to practice with two different types of workouts. The first workout being a […]

Weekly WOD Review 6/7/21

Monday You have the opportunity to choose between a Strength or Conditioning Focus for your Part A, which is similar to last week’s strength session. Different from last week, today we will focus on Front Squats. Front Squats are super important as they are a necessity when learning/performing the Clean. Enjoy!     A)   […]
