WOD Notes: I saw CF Apex posted this WOD and thought it was an appropriate way to finish off this week of programming. I will give you the option of partitioning the reps anyway you’d like. Please arrive early to warm-up as this will be a LONG one!!

***Reminder: Open gym is 11-1pm today

8 Ring Dips
10 Chest/Bar Pull-ups
12 Wall Balls 20/14lb

4/17/2013 – WOD

2 Power Cleans EMOM for 12 Min (4×70%, 4×75%, 4×80%, 8×85%, 4×90%)

Buy In: Row 750m
6 Rounds
5 Deadlifts 275/185lb (55-60% of 1RM)
25 Double Unders
Buy Out: Row 750m

3×12 Back Extensions (weighted)

WOD Notes: The Deadlifts must be dropped after each repetition (no touch & go reps). This will prevent anyone from bouncing the weights and will force you to focus on technique with each pull.


4/16/2013 – WOD

A) Shoulder Press 3x Max Effort (75-80% of 1RM)
B) Push Press 3x Max Effort (75-80% of 1RM)

3 Rounds For Time
12 HSPU 4″/2″ Deficit
21 KB Swings 70/53lb
Run 400m

3x Max Effort L-Sit, Weighted Plank, or GHD Hold

WOD Notes: This WOD is another fairly short one (9-12 min for Elite, 13+ for advanced-novice) so remember to ramp up the intensity. For the strength portion, your goal is to get 6-10 reps. Scaling for the HSPU are push presses @ 60% of your 1RM.


4/15/2013 – WOD

Front Squat 1×5 (75%), 1×3 (85%), 3×1 (95-100% – Find 1RM), 3×2 (90%)

Overhead Squat 115/75lb
Burpee Box Jumps 24/20″
Med ball Sit-ups 20/14lb
—Rest 5 minutes
Row 3x200m All Out! (Rest 90 sec between efforts)

WOD Notes: This WOD is designed to be a short one (Less than 10 minutes), so be prepared to move quickly unlike the birthday WOD on saturday, which required much more aerobic capacity! Overhead squats require increased mobility in the shoulders, so make sure to go lighter. You may substitute front squats or back squats for scaling, but go a little heavier. Med ball sit-ups will be performed facing the wall, where you will throw the ball towards the wall each rep.
