Saturday Workout Of the Day
Every 2 minutes for 12 minutes (6 Rounds)…
Handstand Push-ups x 8-12
Strict Toes-to-Bar x 8-12
*Rep count depends on skill level
Box Jump-overs (24/20)
Front Rack Lunges (95/65) (115/85)*
*If WOD is finished in under 25 minutes…. 500m Row + 3 Rope Climbs
Coach’s Comments: Choose an appropriate rep scheme for your skill work. Recommended number of reps is 8-12, but if you would rather work on technique and do 4 reps every two minutes that is OK too!
While completing the ring rows focus on pulling the rings to your sternum and keep a tight core and contracted glutes – if you have been struggling with false grip try to complete ring rows in false grip form to gain some extra practice.
Friday Workout Of the Day
Snatch 4×2 @ 80%
6 Thrusters (95/65) (115/85)*
12 Push Ups
*2 min rest
10 Hang Cleans (95/65) (115/85)*
10 Sit Ups
*2 min rest
6 Front Squats (95/65) (115/85)*
*Indicates advanced (Rx+)
Coach’s Comments: Since the WODs are fairly short the weights are increased. If you are capable of performing the movements with good technique go ahead and try for something a bit harder :)
Thursday Workout Of the Day
A) 2 Rounds…
8 Hollow Body Rocks
8 Tuck Crunches
B) 3 Rounds…
Plank Hold – 20 seconds per side, 10 second rest
A) Deadlift 4×4 @ 75-80%
B) Jerk 5×2 @ 80-85%
Coach’s Comments: For core work really focus on engaging the core (taking the arch out of your back to become more rounded – tuck your belly button down into your spine) and maintaining this position throughout the exercises.
For the lifts, they are heavy today so make sure you stretch and mobilize any tightness afterwards.
Wednesday Workout Of the Day
Wall Walks 5×3 – 60s rest in between
A) Z-Drill (Sprints) x 5 – 60s rest between
B) Partner WOD:
#1 – 200m Row
#2 – Max Rep Pullups until Partner #1 is done
*Score is Partner WOD time
100 Box jumps
Coach’s Comments: With the wall walks work on transferring your weight onto one side to move your opposite arm, and then shift the weight back onto the other hand to move the opposite arm (like handstand walks). Keep a tight core! Toes and Nose should be the only things touching the wall at any given point.
Give it your all for the sprints, as there will be a lot of rest time provided. Do not try and pace yourself!

Coach’s Comments: Take your time with the back squat reps. There are two full minutes, so be sure to engage your core and glutes during each rep and get into a nice deep and controlled squat.
Focus on technique for the WOD, making sure every rep is technically perfect.
