Workout Of Day (WOD)

5 3 3 2 1

  15.2 For as long as you can: From 0:00-3:00 2 rounds of: 10 overhead squats, 95lb/65lb 10 chest to bar pull ups From 3:00-6:00 2 rounds of: 12 overhead squats 95lb/65lb 12 chest to bar pull ups From 6:00-9:00 2 rounds of: 14 overhead squats, 95lb/65lb 14 chest to bar pull ups …… Strategy: Last week the workout was pretty much toes to bar. This week, Chest to bar pull ups. Break up the chest to bar pull ups early! I know most of you will hear that beep and completely forget any of this, but just try! Get that bar in the overhead squat position and find a nice rhythm. Remember to breath, and find a smooth pace to maintain your overhead squats, don’t go kamikaze. Minimize lateral movement in the overhead position, keep shoulders pinched back and in the correct position (don’t push the bar away AKA shoulders shrugged or “active shoulders”!).   Again, pull ups need to be broken up. Tape your hands/ wear some gloves. Take care […]

Singles came to play  for the majority of us that started off  with big sets. Remember this!   – Break those toes early. We all get so excited and want to go go gadget. We here that 3-2-1 GO, and forget everything of importance about breathing and life, and for some reason think if we go really really hard we will get the best score we possibly can. Break […]

    “Gone Girl” 8min amrap 8 ring dips 8 t2b 40 double unders rest 2 minutes run 1000m For tomorrow we have some ring dips! Here is a great video from Coach Chris, a trainer on the CrossFit Gymnastic seminars.  Watch the video first. Then check out the notes below. Work on doing the dips correctly! The first four reps in this video are correct. Coach Chris keeps his chest pointed towards the floor and his body in a strong hollow position. This allows him to engage larger muscle groups throughout the range of motion, thereby avoiding fatigue, and also keep the pelvis and ribcage (and therefore shoulders) in a strong position, safeguarding him from chronic injury. In the last three reps, Chris keeps his body too vertical, forcing the work onto smaller muscle groups. He breaks hollow and puts his pelvis and ribcage into weak positions, opening him up to shoulder problems down the line. Every time you do a ring dip like this, Coach Chris sprouts a gray […]
