Weekly WOD Overview 12/5/22

For today, the strength EMOM is a little shorter to allow for a little longer finisher with smaller/heavier barbell options. The EMOM is not a ton of time, so get warmed up early on the barbell if you can. I encourage you to ascend if the gym is an icicle. For the metcon, rx’d should treat it as test to push hard on the machine and hit quick but in controlled singles. Use the EMOM as a gauge for the weights you want to use on part B, something a little under the EMOM finish weight. I am shooting for 2-3 minute rounds.

Today, part A gives you a glimpse of the progression of presses we do on the oly lifts (push press – push jerk – split jerk). I’d like you all to work each of them, unless you have a limitation that doesn’t allow you whether mobility or pain. This format is not intended to be a heavy slug fest for 12 minutes and don’t be shy to ask the coach the proper way to re-rack the bar to your shoulders if you find that challenging at heavier loads. Take a look at the videos below. There’s also quite a few pushups in the workout… warning… so save some shoulders!

This is your standard chunky chipper and it should be 18-23 minutes depending on the reps. If you are strong on your wall balls and kettlebells but normally RXD, today is perfectly ok to go with adv reps. Just manage the heart rate and intensity by breaking up the sets accordingly.

This week’s “Squat N Skills” session is more of a baseline test. The clock should be enough time to get around 4-5 squat sets in. Like squats, the max unbroken test will require a bit of rest also, but it should work nicely with a break from the squat. It might be wise to bang out a set of pullups before you get to the bar if you really want to score well on that. Or, vice versa if you need more of a squat warm up. The goal on the max reps skill movement today isn’t to get your first unassisted rep. It’s more of establishing how much volume you currently can accumulate with mild/moderate assistance (shooting for 5-8 or MORE each set). If you can get at least 5 reps of either unassisted, perfect.

25 Minute Clock
800m Run (ADV: 1 Mile Run) or Machine Equivalent
In the remaining time complete both tasks:
Build to a heavy triple Back Squat, Front Squat, OR Overhead Squat
Max total reps of EITHER:
-3 sets of unbroken strict pull ups or Strict C2B
-3 sets of unbroken bar or ring muscle ups

For time:
403m Run or machine equivalent (ADV: 800)
30 Plate Overhead Walking Lunges 25/15, 35/25, 45/35

C.) 35:00-Clean up and high fives

The part A for today should be a nice auxiliary warm up for the deads and core. The deadlifts on part b should be heavier than our normal 5 rounders, but stick with something you can do unbroken. These “short” sets workouts are good for gymnastics as you wont have to deal with muscle fatigue that sets in during sets with 10+ reps.

This is a fun format in which you get your alone time from your partner while they run or amrap, but, if you get done fast enough, you’re treated with some bonding time together splitting up the work. Bring your sweat shop buddy for this one before the festivities.
