WOD: Monday, 12/6/2021: Banded Deadlifts for 1 rep max 🏋🏽‍♂️

Strength:

 As always while deadlifting, we want a stable lumbar spine. A good cue is “Pull the shoulders away from the ears”, to get the lats to engage lats effectively. If you can’t touch your toes, a trap bar, or lifting off plates might be a better option than a conventional Deadlift, or the RDL option as well.  **Talk to your coach!

DEADLIFT AGAINST A BAND 

Build to a 1RM. Rest 3:00

Sets of 4, 3, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1……

– Goal: 5# PR

– Last performed: 11/09/20

Metcon

New Benchmark workout – “Leggplant Rollatini”. Fight for the best position you can on the Front Squats, make the line from the belly button to the solar plexus as long as possible, and drive through your heels to stand up. This will help you breathe, which will obviously make this suck a little less. 

12 Front Squats (155/105)
12/9 Calorie Bike or 15/12 Row
9 Front Squats
9/6 Calorie Bike or 12/9 row
6 Front Squats
6/4 Calorie Bike or 9/7 Row
– Goal: HARD effort, go for broke today.

TIME CAP = 6:00

Accessory: BANDED GLUTE BRIDGE 

3 x 8-10. Rest 60s.
– hold top of each rep for a 2 count

WOD: Push Jerk, Push Press, Burpee Pull ups

WOD: Push Jerk, Push Press, Burpee Pull ups

– Strength: Earlier this month we finished some speed work in an Overhead Barbell Complex, now it’s time to put that work to test and shoot for a #5 PR in the Push Jerk. Make sure to watch for common mistakes during the dip, lifting the heels, dropping the elbows, and dropping so fast that the bar separates from your shoulders.

Strength: 

Push Jerk: Build to a heavy 1 rep in 6-8 sets. Rest 2:00-3:00 between sets.

– Goal: 5# PR
– Last tested 7/12

– Metcon: This a very tough workout that we’ve tested a few times (last tested 7/15).   Make sure to think about performing the push press in as few sets as possible to avoid having to clean the bar to the rack position. The weight should be challenging to complete sets of 10-12 throughout, but many of you should be able to go UB with this one.

Metcon: “The Surprise”

For time:
20-15-10-5
Push Press (135/95)

WOD Friday, 11/5/2021: Final Week of Box Squats

WOD Friday, 11/5/2021: Final Week of Box Squats

Strength

This is our final week of speed work in the Box Squat. Your hips should push back a little further, you should actually sit on the box in order to break up the lift (while maintaining core tension), and your shins should be close to vertical when you’re on the box. Remember, the priority is speed with these sets, so focus on a controlled descent to the box with a tight core, pause, and then an extremely explosive drive off the box. The shin should be very close to vertical when you pause on the box.

Box Squats

EMOM 6: 3 Reps.
– take 3-4 sets to get warm
– 5% heavier than last week
– these are speed sets to a parallel box with a wide stance

Metcon: “sorry in advance”

New benchmark, “Sorry in Advance” This is going to suck any way you slice it, but do your best to keep your chest up both during the lunges and the bike sprint, as this will enable you to breathe easier. Also, make sure to take a big enough step on the Lunges so you have a 90 degree angle in the front knee, as this will make it easier to stand up. Drive through the heel to engage the glutes as much as possible.

2 Rounds:
30 total Front Rack Reverse Lunges (135/95)
15/10 Calorie Bike or 20/15 Calorie Row
Rest 3:00

– Goal: Very hard effort. We apologize in advance to your legs “¯\_(ツ)_/¯“
