Weekly WOD Insights 8/9/21 : The Ben n Jerrys Edition



If you’re going with the RX’d/ Adv version today, then you will be starting with the double unders to allow you to hit those when you are relatively fresh. Getting those out of the way first will allow you to step on the gas for the second couplet and push the intensity. If you’re doing the Beef/Bison version I would highly advise warming up your dubs a good amount before the workout, unless you are an absolute double under ninja!

Todays olympic lifting workout is building from last weeks clean pull. We are adding another element in with the high pull. Performing the high pull will still allow you to practice the first pull and contact point, but we are now working on keeping the barbell nice and close to the body after contact. The high pull is also a good opportunity for a reminder that you don’t want to bend the elbows until after you make contact with your thighs. The finisher should be a high intensity, quick hitter. Choose a weight/ machine combo that will allow you to push the pace the entire time!


A.) 12 Minute Emom

TBT to when I embodied the Chunky Monkey Lifestyle


On the dumbbell push press it will be 6 reps each arm. Its a movement we don’d do often so I scaled the weights back ever so slightly. If you feel confident in your push press ability, don’t be afraid to go above your usual level. With the amrap portion being shorter and there being a decent amount of rest, don’t be afraid to push the pace more than you usually would. For the odd object/skill practice you can opt to learn something new or continue to refine a movement or skill you have been working on.

Same tempo as last week but ideally building from last week’s 5’s. I would encourage you to have someone else count out loud for you at least in your warm up sets just so you can get a feel for how long the descend should be taking. For the finisher, optimal intensity would be achieved by performing the sled pushes. Keep in mind there are a lot of hip based movements for this week so if you plan on going 3-4 days in a row this week you might want to consider performing a carry instead of a sled push.

JB had an idea for this WOD so I have to give all credit to him. People seem to be enjoying the barbell cycling workouts and I think this one will still be fairly accessible to most levels. If you really have trouble with any of these barbell movements, go ahead and let your coach know and we will modify the workout so you can get the appropriate stimulus. Note for Bison you are increasing the weight by 10 pounds total each round.

We got some longer form buy ins for today with some moderate length cash outs. Instead of dispersing the cardio amongst rounds like I usually do, I am having you all perform it in big chunks. This will undoubtedly slow the pace down, but its beneficial to change up the style in which you perform you cardio. If you want to mix and match you buy in and cash outs by all means do so if equipment permits it!
