Weekly Workouts 11/7/2022


I like having Monday’s reserved for squat days. But I also like all the clean work we got in last week. So today I’ll try to add everything together by isolating the pull under the bar allowing for a squat movement as well. And if you guys haven’t noticed, I’m a firm believer in trunk work; not just abs.

A) Tall Cleans

– standing upright, pull yourself right down to a squat clean, move feet out
5 sets of 5 reps @50%
* can increase weight each round if possible

B) 4 Rounds for time

50m Farmer’s Walk 40% BW (Adv: 60% BW) (Beef: 80% BW in both hands)
25 R. KB Swings 16/12kg (Adv: 24/16kg) (Beef: 32/24kg)
* 15 min time cap



Going back to those sets of 10 deadlifts. Everyone should have a better idea of loading and really try and push that weight up. I’d like everyone to work in 3 sets of 5 warming up to 55%-65% of their 1RM if possible. Also like last week, as you return the bar back to the ground, do a lite touch on the floor and stand back up

A) E3MOM  for 5 sets (15 mins)

10 Deadlifts (no bouncing)
Warm up 5 reps @35%; 55%; 65% (*working sets should be difficult)
** During the 3 mins, work in; 20s-30s Hanging knee tuck or L-sit hold

B) E:30 (work 30/rest 30) 20 mins

Inch Worm Push Ups (Adv: Wall Walks) (Beef: Handstand Walk)

Cossack Squats (Adv: Box Pistols) (Beef: Alt Pistols) (Bison: Weighted Alt Pistols)

Push Ups (Adv: Close Grip Push Ups) (Beef: Tiger Push Ups)

DB Split Squats (20/15) (Adv: 30/20) (Beef: 40/25) *ALT legs each round

Rest 1 min



Back to overhead positioning today but with some pause overhead squats (or pause front squats for those who don’t like to go overhead)

A) 1 Pause Front Squat (3 seconds) + 1 Front Squat

Warm Up (3 sets)
1 Pause Front Squat + 2 Front Squats
25%, 45%, 60%
Working Sets
EMOM 8:00 @75% – 77.5%

B) Annie

50-40-30-20 and 10 rep rounds; for time



Thursdays are like eating your vegetables when you’re a kid. No one loved ’em but you had to eat them because they were good for you. Trying to keep it easy’ish today (RPE 6-7)

A) E3MOM for 3 sets (36 mins total)

0:00 – 3:00 Max Cal Air Bike

3:00 – 6:00 Max Distance Reverse Sled Pull 25/15 (adv 45/25) (Beef 70/45)

6:00 – 9:00 Max Cal Row

9:00 – 12:00 Max DBall/Med Ball Ground to Shoulder



I hope everyone is getting an idea of how beneficial workouts like yesterday are. And also allows people to push and hang on for days like today. Also, I’d like to try something new with some strength work for pull-ups (2.1.1)

A) 3 sets of weighted Pull Ups

1 set = 2 Pull Ups + 1 Pull Up + 1 Pull Up (Rest 10s between)

Rest 2:00

* scaled w/bands will do x2 the reps

B) AMRAP 20 minutes of:

5 thrusters  60/45 (Adv: 95/65) (Beef: 115/85)
7 hang power cleans
10 sumo deadlift high pulls
After every 2 rounds, partners run 200m together

* weights should be light enough to do every movement unbroken for the first few rounds



Find a friend and hold on.

A) For Time

Row 2k (accumulated) (partner hold bar in standing deadlift position)

50 Hang Power Snatch (Adv 95/65) /Beef (135/95) (partner hangs from PU bar)
50 Pull Ups (partner holds barbell in front rack position)
200 DU (Accumulated) (partner hold bar in standing deadlift position; again)



I think of Sunday workouts as less joint pounding, medium strength and consistent moving day. Not as slow as an active recovery day but a good moving day. But then there seems to be people who want more. All you have to do is say, “Where’s the beef?”

A) For Time
