Weekly WOD Insights 8/26/19


A while back you guys had said you wanted to re-test workouts. I wanted to give you all the opportunity to do so and utilized a workout that has been a pretty big hit. There are a couple of compare to dates so be sure to check those to give you an idea of what you want to be shooting for.

The last time we back squatted we did 5’s (8/16/19) , so you should have a pretty good idea of what you’ll be able to do fro your fours today, if you made it in to class that day. The accessory pulling will be with a supinated grip since we tend to perform most of our pulling and barbell movements with a pronated grip. Todays met con is a great opportunity for those of you who are on the cusp of nailing down your higher skill gymnastics in met cons. The reps aren’t overwhelming and the run will help prevent the fatigue from settling in too early.

200m Run


Todays a partner workout! Grab your friend or frienemy (Im looking at you Seth!) and get after it. Theres no prescribed way of breaking up the work so you guys can strategize however you would like! If you end up hitting this one solo, no worry. The solo version should still give you some pretty good intensity!

Costumes are not required but are always encouraged. Most importantly just have fun!


I would highly encourage you all to try some new movements with the kettlebells. They’re a fun training tool and you can do so much more with them than just swings! Remember when you are on the bike path to check over your shoulder before turning around, especially since you’ll have some weight in your hands. There are lots of bikers out there, especially on the weekend!
