Weekly WOD Review – 3/7/22
Happy Monday. If you’re needing to scale the Pull Ups, be sure to allow yourself a minimum of 3 repetitions before you’re needing to take a break. It’s important to maintain good discipline through strict movements regardless of whether or not your heart rate is elevated. Understandably, being a bit fatigued makes things a little more challenging, so it’s ok to take your time through the first half of this workout. As for the second half of the workout, feel free to move as quickly as you feel comfortable with, without having to sacrifice the quality of your movement. Ideally, you’ll want to pick a weight/version of KB Swings that allows you to complete a minimum of 6 repetitions before having to take a break. Expect to complete 1-3 rounds.

Your coach will be able to discuss the benefits between the two options. However, if choosing the Strength Option, I encourage you to incorporate any Mobility/Accessory exercises DJ has been teaching during his Functional Classes. This is a great opportunity to practice and understand how the movements he’s been teaching relates to a lot of movements we perform in the gym on a daily basis.
For Part B, it’s important to select a DB Snatch weight/version that allows you to complete a minimum of 10 repetitions before having to take a break.

Happy Thursday. If you’re one that is looking to break down the Clean & Jerk into different segments, I encourage you to take a look at the Complex down below.

If you’d like to Snatch, your coach will be able to provide you with the appropriate Snatch version.
