2/13/2013 – WOD

Strength
12 Min to Find 1RM Power Clean

Conditioning
20 Min AMRAP
5 (1 Power Clean 205/135lb, 2 Lateral Burpees over Bar)
10 KB Walking Lunges 70/53lb
15 Toes To Bar

WOD Notes: Power Clean weight should be 70-75% of 1RM. Make sure you setup each power clean properly with good position for the 1st pull off the ground. For the walking lunges, you will hold the KB up at chest level mimicking the front rack position. This WOD will tax the midline and will challenge you metabolically as well.

Welcome Tina!

2/12/2013 – WOD

Strength
Shoulder Press 1×5 (75%), 1×3 (85%), 1×2 (90%), 3×1 (Find 1RM)

Conditioning
4 Rounds For Time
5 Wall Climbs
20 KB Swings 88/53lb
*At the 5 min mark run 400m outside or 20 Laps inside

Midline
3x Max Effort L-sit Hold/GHD Sit-up Hold/Weighted Plank/6 inches

WOD Notes: Scaling for the wall climbs is walking your feet backward onto a 24/20/12″ box while moving your hands as close as possible to the box to get torso vertical (pike position). Other ways of scaling will be discussed if this is still too difficult.

2/11/2013 – WOD

Strength
Back Squat 1×5 (75%), 1×3 (85%), 5×1 (Find 1RM)

Conditioning
5 Rounds For Time
6 Back Squat (70-75% of 1RM)
30 Lateral Jumps over Barbell
300m Row
—Rest 2 min between rounds
*Score = Total time minus 8 min of rest

WOD Notes: This is an interval style WOD, which each round should be performed as fast as possible. Back Squats should be fairly heavy, but you may double the reps (12) each round and go lighter @ 55% of 1RM to scale. You will have to partner up and share a rack with someone for this workout.

2/8/2013 – WOD

Strength
15 Min To Find a 1RM Snatch (Full Snatch is preferred)

Conditioning
EMOM For 15 Minutes
1 Snatch Complex 155/105lb 65-70% of 1RM (Power Snatch, Hang Power Snatch, Hang Squat Snatch)
1 Tire Flip

WOD Notes: This WOD involves a lot of technique/skill and isn’t designed to metabolically tax your system. You may scale the percentage even lower to work on your form. You may also make-up a WOD that you missed this week, if you don’t plan on coming tomorrow.

WOD Notes: Round 1 = 8 Chest/Bar Pull-ups, 10 Lunges, 30 DU. Round 2 = 12 Chest/Bar Pull-ups, 15 Lunges, 40 DU…Try to physically touch your chest to the bar on the pull-ups (these require a stronger kip & pull). Scaling for the Front Rack lunges are Behind the Neck lunges. Singles are triple the amount of DU.
