08 Jul HOME WOD – Wednesday 8 July 2020

After the last few days of heavy Barbell and Overhead work—and DT on the horizon—we have a longer cardio/bodyweight workout in the cards today. It’s a sneaky shoulder burner. For athletes who attended Monday and Tuesday, think of this workout as an opportunity to get some perfect Push-up technique and volume in, as well as a chance to get sweaty. For those who haven’t attended this week, this workout is about pushing the envelope and hitting it hard for 20 min.

WOD GOAL

After the last few days of heavy Barbell and Overhead work—and DT on the horizon—we have a longer cardio/bodyweight workout in the cards today. It’s a sneaky shoulder burner. For athletes who attended Monday and Tuesday, think of this workout as an opportunity to get some perfect Push-up technique and volume in, as well as a chance to get sweaty. For those who haven’t attended this week, this workout is about pushing the envelope and hitting it hard for 20 min.

A 1-min. Plank is sandwiched between two mini-couplets. This gives athletes the opportunity to catch their breath a little between those two sets of Double-unders and to test their midline further after the Push-ups. We have also included some hip/midline accessory work in the warm-up to add to the stimulus of the session. Make sure people attack this with effort, rather than just treating it as a means to get to the workout portion.

They can perform the Plank on their hands or elbows. You decide. Use the same standard throughout the day.

 

Competitor and Rx’d: For most athletes, the limiting factor will be the Push-ups. The Plank and the Mountain Climbers will fatigue the shoulders and arms, as will the Double-unders, so make sure that athletes are smart about how they break things up.

The goal should be to pick a number for the Push-ups at the start of the workout that your athletes aim to maintain across the 20 min. It should be a number they can perform relatively comfortably with minimal rest between sets. It will most likely drop toward the end of the 20 min., but less than if they started by doing Max sets to failure.

The Double-unders and Mountain Climbers should be performed unbroken each round. They will get spicy, but encourage people to rest between movements rather than in the middle of a movement.

The Plank is accumulative. Most athletes will be able to hold for 1 min. at a time. They might need to break it up in the later rounds.

For your top athletes, aim for roughly 4+ rounds in the 20 min, which is roughly 1 round every 5 min. For everyone else, a good goal is 3+ rounds. Push-up ability will largely dictate how many rounds people get. Don’t be afraid to scale athletes mid-workout if their intensity starts to drop dramatically.

Fitness: We want these athletes to spend some time using a Jump Rope today. We have kept the reps the same as the Double-unders to increase their turnover rate for each round. Given the volume in their version of the workout, they should shoot to complete 4 rounds.

 

Scoring

As many rounds and reps as possible in 20 min.
* The Plank is accumulative. Athletes need to hold for a total of 1 min./45 sec. per round. It doesn’t count toward any reps.

Scaling

  • Push-ups: First, scale the reps to 15-20 per round. Then, have them elevate their hands to a Box or Bench. For variety, you can try using Bands, or even going to their knees. Change the stimulus from what they normally do.
  • Double-unders: First, decrease the reps to 20, then have them perform double reps (50) of Single-unders each round.
  • Plank: Have them drop to their knees. Only scale to this if they are unable to hold for longer than 30 sec. while fresh.
  • Mountain Climbers: Reduce the ROM if they are unable to achieve the full movement standard.

For those athletes who are proficient at the Power Snatch, use today to go for Max loads of 5-3-1. For others, use it as a day to push their boundaries and go as heavy as they can within their technical limits. We kept the reps at 5 for Fitness, so they can work time under tension a little more for the duration of the session.

HIGHLIGHTED SESSION *
1 RM Power Snatch

 

WOD GOAL

After yesterday, some people might be a little sore/fatigued from the overhead and pulling movements, but the moderate volume shouldn’t have too much, if any, effect on today. Use today’s workout to have everyone work up to a heavy and possibly Max 5-3-1 Power Snatch, with the emphasis on speed under the bar and having a solid landing position overhead.

It is up to you whether you want to implement an “unbroken” rule for the sets of 5 and 3. If you allow athletes to break them up, meaning they can put the Barbell down between each rep, make sure they don’t take longer than 3 sec. before picking the Bar back up again. There should be no break between lifts.

If you want them to perform a little finisher at the end, that is fine—allow around 10 min. to prep and perform it.

 

For those athletes who are proficient at the Power Snatch, use today to go for Max loads of 5-3-1. For others, use it as a day to push their boundaries and go as heavy as they can within their technical limits. We kept the reps at 5 for Fitness, so they can work time under tension a little more for the duration of the session.

Make sure people are catching as low as they possibly can while the loads are light, so that when the loads get heavier, their bodies are primed to get under the Bar, rather than reverting to bad habits of catching high and in less than ideal positions. They should be able to add a bit of load after their set of 5 for their set of 3. The amount will vary for everyone, but have them use their set of 5 to dictate how much more they think they can do, given 2 reps fewer.

Allow a lot of rest time between sets. We suggest 4-5 min. Keep everyone as close together as possible so you don’t have half the class finishing really early and the other half not finishing on time.

The finisher is intended to be pretty light for everyone. Athletes should be able to hold onto the Barbell for the duration of each round. Scale as needed.

 

Scoring

Record all 3 Power Snatch sets.

Scaling

  • Power Snatches: Scale load as needed. Increase the reps for newer folks who need to work technique. Take the Bar from the Hang to reduce the complexity of the movement.
  • For Further Study: Skill Transfer Exercises for the Snatch with Coach Burgener

06 Jul HOME WOD – Monday 6 July 2020

Today’s workout requires 12 min. of effort and features a beautiful combination of Squatting, Pushing, and Pulling. The movements alternate between weightlifting and gymnastics. The loading for the weightlifting is moderate, but the gymnastics movements are all fairly complex for the average athlete. Lots of grippy movements today, which will test muscular endurance.

WOD GOAL

Today’s workout requires 12 min. of effort and features a beautiful combination of Squatting, Pushing, and Pulling. The movements alternate between weightlifting and gymnastics. The loading for the weightlifting is moderate, but the gymnastics movements are all fairly complex for the average athlete. Lots of grippy movements today, which will test muscular endurance.

There is no rest between movements, so athletes will need to strategize over when to stop one movement to get to the next. Do they go right up until the last second, or do they take the last 5 sec. to get to the next movement? It depends on how much they like the next movement—or how fatigued they are 😉

All barbell movements are performed with the same load. Try to avoid using AbMats for the HSPUs, unless it is for head protection. We want to preserve the full ROM as much as possible today.

We are using the warm-up as an opportunity for athletes to get some time under a light barbell for a few reps. If you feel like you need to get them a little sweaty before this, that is fine—otherwise, you can have them perform the first few rounds with a PVC or an empty barbell.

 

Competitor and Rx’d: For some of the movements, 2 min. will feel like a long time (like ALL the barbell movements), and for other movements, 2 min. will seem like a short time (like ALL the gymnastics movements—unless you have some ninjas!). Where possible, keep intensity high and rest short.

For the movements that people can perform quickly, have them hit these at an aggressive pace that they know they can handle for 2 min., though it will feel spicy. For some people, that might mean performing up to 15+ Squat Cleans in 1 min., while for others that might mean 10+ reps in 1 min. They should be able to get a few more reps per minute on the Jerks. The load should be something that they can handle the above with. Challenge some people to go heavier today rather than scaling the load. It is OK if they don’t get that many reps; they have other movements where they can push the intensity.

For the Ring Pull-ups and Toes-to-bars, the goal should be upwards of 10 per min. Because it is just one time through, you will have some people who don’t usually perform these movements in a workout being able to give it a shot. Set the standard for both movements before the workout so people know what to hit each rep.

The same goal of 10+ per min. for those HSPUs should be achievable, with your Competitors getting close to 15-plus.

Since the Squat Clean and Jerk is the last movement, really push them to hammer out as many as possible with whatever they have left in the tank. This might mean sets of as low as 1-3 with quick breaths in between.

The biggest challenge once they are past those first 2 min. will be to perform movements under heavy breathing and muscle fatigue. This means they shouldn’t go all out on the Squat Cleans, but should push to the point of yuck.

Fitness: We want to keep the intensity as high as possible for these athletes. A total of 15-20 reps per 2 min. for each movement should be the goal (give or take some movements).

Scoring

Total reps.
* Add all reps together for the 6 movements to get 1 number.

Scaling

  • Barbell movements: Scale the load as needed. Sets of 5+ should be the goal.
  • Ring Pull-ups: Scale to banded regular Pull-ups (unless you are OK with messing around with bands on rings), then perform Jumping Pull-ups for intensity.
  • Handstand Push-ups: Scale to Box Pike Push-ups, then to Pike Push-ups. Sets of 5 + are the goal.
  • Ring Toes-to-bars: Scale to Hanging Knee Raises (Ring or Bar). Set the standard at knees break parallel.

 

Fitness

  • Hanging Knee Raises: Scale to Lying Bent Leg Knee Raises.
  • For Further Study: Box Rock Drill and Handstand Stability

04 Jul HOME WOD – Saturday 4 July 2020

Happy July 4th America! We know this isn’t a holiday celebrated in every country, but it is a big one over here in the US so we like to recognise it. We like this workout because it is a classic CrossFit triplet that isn’t too crazy for the majority and is easily scalable. So for those folk outside the US, this isn’t out of the range of a regular day.

While partner 1 attempts to row a perfect 100 m! (To get a perfect 100m, athletes must use full pulls on the rower with no breaks in between pulls and land exactly on 100m.)

Partner 2 performs alternating long lunges.
Switch.

Who ever rowed the closest to the perfect 100 m, doesn’t need to perform the penalty below —–>
*Add a 2 x burpee penalty per missed metre (if you land on 98 m, you perform 4 burpees).

Perform a total of 3 rounds. Mix up the penalties if you want and if it is the same person winning each time, at the end of the three rounds, have them perform 6 burpees for fun 😉

(5+ min.) Shoulder Warmup #1

WOD GOAL

Happy July 4th America! We know this isn’t a holiday celebrated in every country, but it is a big one over here in the US so we like to recognise it. We like this workout because it is a classic CrossFit triplet that isn’t too crazy for the majority and is easily scalable. So for those folk outside the US, this isn’t out of the range of a regular day. There is a lot of pulling today. From the ground and overhead. Both shoulders and back are going to get lit up somewhere around the third round.

 

Some people might want to give the competitor option a go today since that is the ‘rxd’ workout. If you are ok with that, you will need to allocate more time for the workout and give them some ‘hand care’ advice for all those pull-ups.

 

We will leave it up to you how you need to organise your space due to covid restrictions. If sharing boxes isn’t an option, then you may need to perform over the barbell jumps instead. Double the reps.

Choose a load that they are comfortable doing 10 reps unbroken with. This applies to the other two movements as well. It shouldn’t be so easy that the workout takes 10 min., but just hard enough so that they get slowed down by it as the rounds progress.

 

Scoring

Time to complete workout

Scaling

Deadlifts: Scale load as needed. They should be able to perform 15 reps unbroken while fresh AND while under fatigue.

Box jumps: Scale the height as needed. They should feel comfortable jumping up onto the height they choose when they are tired. If they are scared when they are fresh, it is too high.

* For fitness, start with step ups as the modification OR use a plate to perform low box jumps on.

Pull-ups: Use bands today if you are ok with that. Otherwise, scale to a challenging ring row, then to a jumping pullup.

We will leave it up to you how you need to organise your space due to covid restrictions. If sharing boxes isn’t an option, then you may need to perform over the barbell jumps instead. Double the reps.

The intention of the workout is to plug away at a consistent, efficient pace. Nothing should be done at speed, unless your athletes know for sure they can maintain this pace across all five rounds.

 

The deadlift load is light to moderate, but there are 75 reps, so it might get a little spicy for some people. Regardless, your top athletes should be able to do all 15 unbroken each round. The box jumps are 24” for the rx’d version and we brought it down to 20” for everyone else (men and women). This way, your quicker athletes should be able to cycle those box jumps no problem each round and the majority of your athletes will be able to do quick jump up/step down transitions for each round.

The goal for the pull-ups should be able to be done in two sets in the early rounds and maybe 3 in the last few rounds. See the scaling options below.

Your top athletes will go sub or around 20 min. Allow up to 25 min. for the majority. It is up to you whether you want to enforce the time cap, if you don’t, then you should allocate up to 30 min, because there will be people who take that long.

(10 min.) Warm up in teams of 3

Accumulate 2,100 m. of Rowing as fast as possible. Have each person Row at least 200 m at a time.
While 1 person is Rowing, another person is performing Long Lunge Sequence and the other person is performing Inchworms + 1 Push-up. Switch stations each time someone gets off the rower.

(10 min.) Mobility in teams of 3

* 90 sec. at each station:
1. Good-morning to Squat

* At first, use this as an opportunity to have them practice something more challenging than what they normally do. Then, use their workout modification for the later sets.

 

(10 min.) Prep the DB Row

Using 1 load lighter than their workout weight, perform 10 reps (no Burpee), 5 on each side. Coach them through this and teach them the correct positions.

Then, using their workout weight, perform 5 reps on each side.
Then, perform 4 full reps. A full rep = 1 rep right + 1 rep left + 1 burpee.

 

* Prep as needed for the workout.

5 ROUNDS

 

WOD GOAL

We are taking a break from going overhead today and focusing on pulling and pushing in multiple planes. We are using a 1:1 work-to-rest ratio, which will allow the athletes to maximize how much work they get done within each effort. The reps will vary between each movement, given the types of movements they are. The Row will be the quickest rep accumulator and the most metabolically demanding movement, while the Ring Row will be the hardest technical movement, making it tough to accumulate reps. The DB Row + Burpee will take the longest to perform, since it is technically 3 reps for every 1 rep.

The DB Row + Burpee is performed in a Plank position. 1 rep = 1 Row on right arm + 1 row on left arm + 1 Burpee (hands on DBs). We chose this load because athletes only perform 2 reps at a time with a Burpee in between. We feel like they will be able to sustain this over the 30 sec.

Have athletes start on different movements if you are short on Rowers. Alternatively, you can modify to Biking or Shuttle Runs (20 m) instead.

 

Everyone: The goal is to maintain the same results across each movement for at least the first 3 rounds, then there will be some expected drop off for the last 2. We want athletes to go out hard and try to hold on for all 5 rounds. This is possible for the Row and the DB Row/Burpee, but the nature of Ring Dips is that when they start to fail, there is no amount of rest that will allow them to get the same high number of reps. We suggest picking a number of reps for the Dips that they know is manageable to hit each round. For the Row and the DB Row/Burpee, just go all out every time. Since the rest is built in, athletes won’t need to factor that in.

* For the Dips, we want people to be able to hold at least 3-5 reps each time they jump up, to maximize intensity and volume. Take this into consideration when you help with scaling. This goes for all categories.

Competitors and top athletes should be looking at 10/8 Cals. on the Row, 10-15 Dips, and 5-6 DB Rows/Burpees per round. For the majority, a good goal across the board would be 7/5 Cals. on the Row, 8-10 Dips, and 3-4 DB Rows/Burpees.

 

Scoring

Add together all reps from all movements for 5 rounds to reach 1 total number.

* Either keep a running tally for each round and add the rounds together, or keep a movement tally for all 5 rounds and add all movement reps together.

 

Scaling

Ring Dips: Scale to using a light band, or perform a Box/Bench Dip.

DB Row + Burpee: Scale the load as needed.

Fitness

DB Row + Burpee: Scale the load as needed and scale the Burpee to a Kick-back.

For Further Study: Death, then CrossFit.

Briefing video

 

Daily Board

 

 

 

 

WARMUP

Partially Loaded & Rx’d

(For Unloaded please click on the Unloaded Tab.)

 

(10-15 min.) Warm-up – Use light KB (one or two loads less than workout weight)

100-m Farmer’s Carry (50-m Right Arm + 50-m Left Arm)
10 Deadlift + Goblet Squat (1 Deadlift + 1 Goblet Squat = 1 rep)
100-m Front-rack Carry (50-m RA + 50-m LA)
10 Goblet Walking Lunges
100-m Single-arm OH Carry (50-m RA + 50-m LA)
4 TGUs (2 RA + 2 LA)

* With time remaining, perform 5-10 reps of Ninja Hip Flow.

 

WORKOUT PREP & WORKOUT

(15-20 min.) Work up to a heavy 50-m Single-arm OH Carry

In partners, work up to a heavy 50-m Single-arm OH Carry (25-m RA + 25-m LA)
* P1 works while P2 rests, then switch.

Use 3-5 efforts to reach their max. For some, it may take 3 efforts. If you don’t have heavy enough KBs, use DBs.
* Make sure athletes maintain an optimal body position for the 50 m. Back arching and side leaning means they are NOT.

* Some people will be restricted by shoulder mobility. If that is the case, have them go lighter and perform 100-m efforts instead.

(5 min.) Prep for the Workout

Using their workout load, have them perform:
8 Backward KB Lunges + 15 Air Squats

* Prep as needed for the workout.

(5-7 min.) Perform the Workout

 

WARMDOWN

Repeat 5-10 reps of the Ninja Flow. If time permits, perform some Shoulder Band work.

 

WARM-UP

2 Rounds

10 Air Squats to up-and-over fence
10 Inchworm + 1 Push-up
10 Samson Stretch
10 Warrior Stretch

 

5 Double Pulsing Air Squat
5-10 Chair Dips
10 Toe taps

 

WOD

AMRAP 10 min.

10 Double Pulsing Air-Squats (one pulsing (half squat + one full squat = 1 rep)
10 Chair Dips
20 Object Toe Taps

 

Scoring
As many rounds and reps as possible in 10 min.

 

Scaling

Scale Dips to Push-ups.
Scale UP to elevated feet.

WOD

12 Reverse Lunges with 1 DB
50 m Walk with 1 Arm DB OH Carry
25 Air Squats
3 Rounds

 

WOD Design and Logistics

Today, we are changing gears a bit after the heavy, taxing start to the week. We have a short, lower-body blaster with some static overhead work in store. Since the overhead work is static rather than dynamic, as well as short (50 m), any soreness from yesterday’s Thrusters won’t affect this movement too much. The back-to-back reps of the Lunges and Air Squats will make for a tough transition, but the reps and overall volume is low, so it shouldn’t change the intended speed of the workout as a whole.

The load is set to moderate for the Lunges and OH Carry, but for many athletes it will feel as though there’s a discrepancy between the two movements due to a lack of mobility and stability strength in the OH position while walking. In this case, you can have them use separate loads for each movement if you think it is appropriate.

*The Carry is intended to use the same load as the Lunges.

*For the Lunges, athletes can hold the KB in Goblet or Front Rack (on one side).

We have included some time in the prep to work up to a heavy Single-arm OH Carry. This will highlight how hard the movement is for many people and help with stabilization overhead, further preparing them for the workout.

 

Scoring

Time to complete the workout.

 

WOD Goal

Everyone: We have prescribed the same load for the Competitors and Rx’d folks. To increase the difficulty for your Competitors today, instead of increasing the load, you can turn the Lunges into Single-arm OH Lunges, if you’d like.

Nothing should be broken up today. The hardest part will be the transition from the Squats to the Lunges, but it shouldn’t slow anyone down enough for them to need to take too much of a break in between. It is intended to be a sprint. NO running with the Carries, though. Your top athletes will be able to complete this workout in under 5 min., with most of your athletes finishing around 6-7 min.

 

Scaling

Everyone

Reverse KB Lunges: Reduce the load as needed. Use dumbbells if there aren’t enough kettlebells.

Single-arm OH Carry: First, reduce the load as needed. Then, hold the KB or DB in the front-rack position instead.

Air Squats: Scale the reps to 15-20 per round, then modify the movement as needed for individual athletes.

 

Fitness

Lunges: If needed, omit the KB.

01 Jul HOME WOD – Wednesday 1 July 2020

This month, we have Power movements and lots of Squatting on the menu for our single-modality strength day.

Briefing video

 

Daily Board

 

 

 

 

WARMUP

(5-10 min.) Warm-up

Perform 20 Hands to Floor, Squat to Jumping Jacks
*Every 5 or so reps, yell a command (like “FREEZE!”) and have athletes freeze in a Supine Plank. The last person to get in a Plank has to perform 3 Burpees.
*If you don’t want to use the penalty, you can just make fun of the last person in a non-shaming way 🙂

 

(5-10 min.) Mobility

10 Arm Swings in each direction (forward and back, double arm, single arm, opposite directions, etc.)
10 Arm Circles in each position (start with wide circles, then slowly go to smaller and smaller circles)
1 min. Pole Stretch (each side)

 

5 Sit-ups to Pike (reach for R leg)
5 Sit-ups to Pike (reach for L leg)
5 Sit-ups to Straddle (reach for the middle)

 

10 Plane Crash Victims(5 facing down on floor, 5 belly up)

 

WORKOUT PREP & WORKOUT

(20 min.) Review and Prep for Workout

As a group, with a PVC or empty barbell, review the Thruster as:
Front Squat—Press—Push Press—Thruster

 

Then, get straight into warming up your lift with:

5-5-3-3-3
Thrusters

 

*Add a little load each set. The last set of 3 should be performed at or close to the weight of the workout’s first set of 3.

(15 min.) Perform Workout

*Perform a set every 4 min. to maximize recovery.

 

WARMDOWN

(10 min.) Optional Finisher

5 x 25 Wall-Ball efforts

*Partner up—while one person works, the other rests. There should be roughly 1 min. to 90 sec. of rest each between efforts.

5 Rounds

12 x Jumping air squats

12 x sit-ups


Scoring

5 Rounds for time

 

Scaling

Air squats instead of jumping air squats

 

WOD Goal

This one is going to be burn the Legs! Try and complete all 12 reps unbroken. If 12 reps are too easy.. increase the rep range to 15 or 20 reps. The sit-ups will give the lungs and legs a small break. Make sure you choose a rep range that will challenge your midline each round! Do five rounds.. make the legs burn. If you are just getting into training.. rather do less reps or scale down to normal air squats!

 

10 Rounds

8-10 DB Alt. Arms Thruster
Every 90 seconds.

Thrusters
3-3-3-3-3

Scoring

Total load lifted across all 5 sets.

 

Scaling

WOD Goal

This month, we have Power movements and lots of Squatting on the menu for our single-modality strength day. Today we are kicking off with some heavy Thrusters. This session will give athletes a chance to max out for 5 sets of 3 reps to test your strength capacity. We want each set to be max effort, which means we are going to take plenty of time to warm up to your starting weight and take plenty of rest between sets (3-5 min.). If any athlete fails a set at a desired weight, they will have ample time to re-attempt it if they choose to do so.

The Thrusters are taken off the rack today, so you don’t have to worry about the Squat Clean portion.

We have added an optional finisher for those wanting a little extra. If you’ve been with us for a while, you will know our feelings on these 😉 We want the focus to be the lifting and we believe that, if done properly, no one should need to do anything else. But we get that there are a few reasons why a finisher may be appropriate, so we still throw them in there occasionally. Be sure to take some time from somewhere else in the workout, since we don’t allocate time for a finisher in the session plan.

 

Fitness: We want the second set of 3 to be heavier than the first, so each set in your workout today should be getting heavier. These athletes will often get better with more repetition, so if they don’t necessarily feel that great at a certain weight, have them repeat it and then add more. It isn’t likely that these athletes will be going too heavy in terms of your overall strength reserve (since technique will inhibit them), so they can afford a few more sets to work on positions if need be.

Be sure to take some time from somewhere else in the workout, since we don’t allocate time for a finisher in the session plan.

 

Everyone: Typically, the Push Press portion of the movement is the inhibiting factor, so you can give athletes who know your Push Press numbers a good idea of where to ballpark your weight attempts based off that figure if they don’t know your Thruster max numbers.

Competitor & Rx’d: Shoot for a loading around or slightly above 85 percent across all sets.

Fitness: We want the second set of 3 to be heavier than the first, so each set in your workout today should be getting heavier. These athletes will often get better with more repetition, so if they don’t necessarily feel that great at a certain weight, have them repeat it and then add more. It isn’t likely that these athletes will be going too heavy in terms of your overall strength reserve (since technique will inhibit them), so they can afford a few more sets to work on positions if need be.

 

Mobility and Maintenance:

Choose 1-2 Thoracic Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 5-10 minutes with them.

Choose 1-2 Upper Extremity Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 5-10 minutes with them.

Choose 2-3 Lower Extremity Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 10-12 minutes with them.

 

Nutrition Preparation:

Ensure that you have quality foods prepared in the appropriate quantities to fuel your efforts for the remainder of the week.

Mental Restoration: Different for everyone – could be quiet time, prayer or meditation or could be gathering with friends; the key is to engage in activities that make your life full and help you recharge your batteries.

30 Jun HOME WOD – Tuesday 30 June 2020

We are doubling up on running from yesterday. The same volume, delivered differently. This wasn’t a mistake. We don’t do this often, but it is a good challenge to see where you are mentally and physically with being uncomfortable.

 

VIDEO & BOARDWARM-UPUNLOADEDPARTIALLY LOADEDFULLY LOADEDREST AND RECOVERY

Briefing video

 

 

 

Daily Board

 

 

 

WARMUP

(5 min.) Quick Warm-up

5 x 10-m Shuttle runs.
10 Bootstrap squat stretches
5 x 10-m Shuttle runs.
10 Air squats
5 x 10-m Shuttle runs.
10 Jumping air squats

 

(15-20 min.) Project Inversion #13

Finale

3 x Max Handstand Hold
* Choose a position that they can maintain for longer than 30 sec. for each hold
* Scale as needed as per the first week – compare results.

 

For fun BONUS – Walking on Hands

10 Walk into Wall — Kick up 5-10 m away from wall and Handstand Walk into Wall
Rest
* Scale DOWN to 10 Slow Perfect Wall Climbs, or as Round the World Walks (Box or Pike)
20 Hand Plate Walks — Use 45 lb Plates on either side and walk right hand up, then across to the other side, left hand is up on the other plate
Rest
* Scale UP to Handstand Walking with plates as obstacles
* Scale DOWN to Box or Pike Plate Walks

 

WORKOUT PREP & WORKOUT

(10-15 min.) Prep for the Front Squats

Everyone

As a group, with a db or empty barbell, review the front squat as needed.

Front squat – pause front squat – flag-pole stretch – sots press

 

Then, perform:

20 Front squats
15 Front squats
10 Front squats
* Between each set, run 100-m at a moderate pace.
* Add load each round to work up to the workout load.

 

* Prep as needed for the workout.
* UL folk, work the air squat instead.

 

(10-15 min.) Perform the workout
* With time remaining, perform a cool down.

 

For Time

100 Air Squats
1 k Run


Scoring

Time to complete the workout

 

Scaling

Scale to 800 m, or modify to a row instead if possible.
Air squats: Reduce the reps as needed.

 

WOD Goal

We are doubling up on running from yesterday. The same volume, delivered differently. This wasn’t a mistake. We don’t do this often, but it is a good challenge to see where you are mentally and physically with being uncomfortable. If you are not on board with this, you can row instead (if possible). Ideally, you should all run. The squatting/running couplet is such a unique stimulus. The volume for the squats is low and moderate in load, which will mean they can race through these reps and get to the meat of the workout, the run.

 

This isn’t a sprint. It is a short workout, but not a sprint. People will want to be a little conservative out the gate. Perform the squats with intention, not 100% intensity. The loading should feel moderate for the first half, then challenging for the second half. Two sets is ideal, some will need to break it up into 3 or even 4. The goal is to finish the squats within 2.30 minutes. Top athletes will most likely go unbroken under 2 minutes.
We want the workout to be about the run. The squats will pre-fatigue them a little out the gate, but by the 400-m mark, they should find their groove and set into a solid pace for the remaining 600 m. Total times should range between 7-10 minutes.

For Time

70 Db Front Squats
1 k Run


Scoring

Time to complete the workout

 

Scaling

Scale to 800 m, or modify to a row instead if possible.
DB Front squats: First, scale to one dumbbell. Then, scale the reps as needed.

29 Jun HOME WOD – Monday 29 June 2020

Today we have a combo of running and pressing. The workout is intended to be around 10-15 minutes.

 

VIDEO & BOARDWARM-UPUNLOADEDPARTIALLY LOADEDFULLY LOADEDREST AND RECOVERY

Briefing video

 

 

Daily Board

 

 

 

WARMUP

(10-15 min.) Warm-up

100-m run
10 Inchworms + push-up
10-20 Bird Peckers
10 Alt. Cossack Squat

 

200-m run
10 Plank shoulder taps
10 Alt. Air squat to up and over the fence

 

400-m run
10 Pike push-ups
10-20 Split leg good-mornings

 

(10 min.) Project Inversion Session #13

Round the Worlds

2 min. AMRAP Box Round the Worlds
Rest 1 min.
2 rounds

* Scale to Pike Round the Worlds
* Perform one set until failure one direction, then one set in the other and so on.

 

WORKOUT PREP & WORKOUT

Everyone

(10 min.) Pressing Prep

Review the PP and hold as needed.

Then, with a light set of dumbbells (one down from their workout weight) perform;
5 Press + 5 sec. hold at the top of each press
5 Push press
* Repeat with their workout weight

 

* For UL, have them perform pike push-ups and holds instead of the dumbbell work.

 

* Prep as needed for workout

(15-20 min.) Perform the workout

 

10 rounds

100-m Run
10 Pike Push-up
10 Pike Hold


Scoring

Time to complete the workout

 

Scaling

Run: Decrease the distance as needed.
* Ideally, keep the distance the same and reduce the total rounds to 7 or 8 if needed.

Pike push-up: Reduce the angle of your body. Then, scale to a push-up and it’s various scalings.
Pike hold: Scale as needed to a plank hold.

 

WOD Goal

The goal is to go straight from the run into the push presses and then without putting the dumbbells down, straight into the 10 sec hold. Everyone should be able to hold the dumbbells for 10sec without putting it down. Some people will be limited by your mobility. You should use a lighter load for both the push presses and the hold, or perform a one arm hold/dble hold instead.

There is no penalty for putting the dumbbells down during the push presses and hold, but try hold on to the dumbbells for the whole time, since you will get rest after this.
Each round should take no longer than 90 sec.-2 minutes. We have allocated up to 20 min to get it done. Top athletes will be able to complete the workout sub 15 minutes.

 

We are almost into July. These first two days of the week will be our last sessions of project inversion, as well as our offering of the unloaded version.
Today we have a combo of running and pressing. The workout is intended to be around 10-15 minutes. The volume per round is low to ensure the same intensity is maintained throughout the workout. The limiting factor will be the overhead hold, which is why we kept it short. Most athletes should be able to maintain the hold unbroken for the full 10 rounds.
NOTE: The hold is 10 sec. accumulative time. It needs to be done straight after the push presses. If you need to put it down during the 10 sec, your timer should pause and when you pick it back up again, you can resume your time. It is done with both dumbbells overhead.

 

10 rounds

100-m Run
10 DB Push Press
10 sec. DB Hold overhead


Scoring

Time to complete the workout

 

Scaling

Run: Decrease the distance as needed.
* Ideally, keep the distance the same and reduce the total rounds to 7 or 8 if needed.
Push press: Scale as needed. You should be able to perform 10 reps unbroken + the hold easily when fresh.
DB Hold: Ideally use the same load as the push press, but if you are so limited, you can try using a double hold with both hands on one dumbbell, or a one arm hold using a single dumbbell.

27 Jun HOME WOD – Saturday 27 June 2020

Today’s workout is a chipper that starts out with a heavy posterior leg emphasis and ends with a challenging upper body push pull.

 

VIDEO & BOARDWARM-UPUNLOADEDPARTIALLY LOADEDFULLY LOADEDREST AND RECOVERY

Briefing video

 

 

Daily Board

 

 

 

WARMUP

(10 min.) Warm-up

Perform the cone Cone speed drill (if at home, perform it alone and pretend you have someone else there. Or, use a kid, or a dog!)

 

(5 min.) Quick Mobility

30 sec. Cat camel twerk
30 sec. Plane crash victim
30 sec. Inch worm to zombie pull
1-2 rounds – time permitting.

 

WORKOUT PREP & WORKOUT

Everyone

(10 min.) Upper body gymnastics prep

Perform as a group:
3-5 x 5 sec push-ups (5 sec descent, 5 sec pause at bottom, press up)
2-3 broad jumps
5 push-ups
2-3 broad jumps (further)
3-5 deficit push-ups

 

*Keep going on push ups until you cannot perform 3 in a row
*Keep going on jumps until you find your max distance, take around 50% of that for workout distance (eyeball it) – if you want to prescribe a more uniform distance, that is fine too.

 

Fully and Partially Loaded

(10 min.) Prep for workout

6 Deadlifts
6 alt DB snatches (3 each)
2-3 rounds

 

*Add weight as you go for FL.
*Set up push-up station

 

Unloaded

6 3-point floor touches
6 alt. Supine Leg lifts
2-3 rounds

 

* Prep as needed for the workout

 

(15 min.) Perform workout

 

60 3-pos floor Touches
40 Supine Leg Lifts
30 Deficit push-ups
20 Broad Jumps


Scoring

Time to complete the workout

 

Scaling

Supine leg lifts: Omit being in a supine plank and perform hip raises with or without the leg lift instead.
Deadlifts: Scale the load as needed. Sets of 15+ while fresh should be the goal.
Broad jump: aiming to target around 50% of maximum jump
Push-ups: Scale up or down in plate height to achieve rep ranges of 3-5 at a time, maximum being 7. Scale further to a regular push-up and scales associated with that.
Db snatches: Scale the load as needed.

 

WOD Goal

Deficit push-ups should be challenging and performed in sets of 5-7 during the workout. If you can do close to 10, make the push up deficit larger. Use books to create a deficit push-up.
Better times in this workout will be around the 8-10 minute range, ranging up towards 12 based on complexity of gymnastic upper body movement implemented.

 

60 DB Deadlifts
40 DB. Alt. Power Snatch (50/35 lb.)
30 Deficit push-ups
20 Broad Jumps


Scoring

Time to complete the workout

 

Scaling

Scale the reps for the dumbbell movements if your dumbbell is on the heavier side.
Deadlifts: Scale the load as needed. Sets of 15+ while fresh should be the goal.
Broad jump: aiming to target around 50% of maximum jump
Push-ups: Scale up or down in plate height to achieve rep ranges of 3-5 at a time, maximum being 7. Scale further to a regular push-up and scales associated with that.
Db snatches: Scale the load as needed.

 

WOD Goal

For the deadlifts, athletes will be able to complete the work in 2-3 sets. Even if you can go unbroken for all 50, perform one rest and then use that energy for the DB snatches to go unbroken. Snatches should be a weight you can move with and perform with maybe 1-2 rests during the set. This should be a light to moderate weight. For the broad jumps, we will establish a maximum distance in the warm up, so aim to exceed 50% of your best jump in each broad jump of the workout (20 total reps).

You can measure this off of the stall mats or with cones on the floor. Deficit push-ups should be challenging and performed in sets of 5-7 during the workout. If you can do close to 10, make the push up deficit larger.
Better times in this workout will be around the 8-10 minute range, ranging up towards 12 based on complexity of gymnastic upper body movement implemented.

 

The difference is the deadlift load. We know that 10 more reps will not match the difference in stimulus/load to that of the FL track, but we don’t want to rack up volume for volume’s sake.

50 Deadlifts (185/135 lb.)
40 DB. Alt. Power Snatch (50/35 lb.)

Better times in this workout will be around the 8-10 minute range, ranging up towards 12 based on complexity of gymnastic upper body movement implemented.

Today’s workout is a chipper that starts out with a heavy posterior leg emphasis and ends with a challenging upper body push pull. Those who completed yesterday’s workout may feel your back sides lit from yesterday’s devils presses, so we will feature a bit more back and hamstring work in today’s warm up.
The first two movements of this workout, the DB deadlift and DB snatch will light up your athletes low back and hamstrings. This is intended on fatiguing them for the push-ups and broad jumps that are coming up next.
Deficit push ups are performed with each hand on a plate, elevating your body, but increasing your range of motion in the push up so that your chest is lower than your hands.
We encourage you to perform the broad jumps for quality rather than quantity.

Mobility and Maintenance:

Choose 1-2 Thoracic Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 5-10 minutes with them.

Choose 1-2 Upper Extremity Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 5-10 minutes with them.

Choose 2-3 Lower Extremity Mobility Drills from Kelly Starrett’s Mobility WOD and spend 10-12 minutes with them.
