Weekly WOD Insights 8/19/19

We are working from the hang today.
Read this article from Catalyst Athletics on the differences and purposes of each of the HANG positions.
We typically grease this portion during our warm-ups, but they are just as effective as stand alone sessions and think it’s a nice way to refine technique and awareness of what’s going on at the top of the lift. It’s always a nice change up for those of you who hit from the floor or pull lots of things off the ground each week. For part B, I’m sure one of the movements will be the limiter but, go into today with a goal of either making it a muscle endurance workout or intense conditioning. The coach can help you scale up or down for you liking. Just ask!

EMOM for 12 minutes
2 Hang Squat Clean or Snatch
ADV: 1 Across @75-85%

AMRAP in 8 minutes
8 Power Cleans 95/65, (ADV: 115/75), (ADV+ 135/95)
8/6 Pushups (ADV: 10/8 or 7/5 HSPU or 6/4 Ring Dips)

Ascending AMREP in 8 minutes
3 Power Cleans 155/105 (Bison: 185/125)
3 HSPU or Ring Dips (Bison: Strict HSPU)

New skills will be up on the board for this cycle. You can also check out my coaching instagram page here for video of some of the movements I did with Bri. I kept it to the same EMOM each day for more consistency and opportunity to do the same set of skills. But, I did add a few more options for each. For the WOD, it is interval style, so push the pace slightly more than your regular 7 rounder. For the Open option, the thrusters go up in reps every 2 minutes…good luck!

The buy-in indeed takes a large chunk of time, but wanted to keep the pushing volume tame and the workout balanced between body weight movements and barbell. Kept the reps the same on the AMRAP for advanced and beef given their heavier weight on the buy-in. I want folks to come in and mash (potato) on the amrap.
