Weekly WOD Review 5/27/19

Happy Memorial Day! Thanks to all that have served our country especially those who have have been lost. For those doing “Murph” solo for the first time, it’s key to break these reps up to minimize muscle fatigue and keeping intensity. Some ways we’ve done it in the past:
Mile-20 rounds of Cindy (5 Pullups, 10 Push-ups, 15 Air Squats)-Mile
Mile-10 rounds of (10, 20, 30)-Mile
Partner Versions: Alternate 400’s, Alternate 20 rounds of Cindy), Alternate 400’s
If you are just starting out or do not feel comfy with the volume, go with the half version or work with the Marko who will give you some solid alternatives.

Today, we start another cycle of our skills/accessory EMOM work. Check the sheet of paper by the Good Vibes Gorilla. You all did a great job the last cycle! I really saw some stellar improvements by several of you in static strength and your pushes/pulls, and I was especially pumped to have heard that Jack got a 12-foot handstand walk! Nice work, dude! The beer will only be cracked open if you get 15ft though! Let’s keep the momentum going. The format will be the same, alternating minutes for 6 minutes, with around 20-45 seconds of focused work on each movement.

I called this one “Mind Games” as I’ve done one similar to this and remember it being a good mental test. The reps are relatively short and two of the barbell movements are those that which I didn’t like the idea of putting it down. Lastly, I HATE finishing on the run, and our “hill” is always in the back of my mind on each round of this. If the reps are manageable enough for you to go unbroken, remember that you can still move at a chill pace doing so, especially with lunges and STO.
