Harvey

I’m sure you’ve all seen the devastating toll that Harvey has taken on Houston and much of Texas and Louisiana.  For the first 7 days of September all of the Sweat Angels check-ins go to Harvey relief efforts.  In the mean time, check out this article from the CrossFit Journal about boxes in the Houston area.

The Week

Monday – Holleyman

We’ve done this hero wod a few times before!  30 rounds of 5 wall balls, 3 handstand push-ups, and 1 power clean at 225/155.  Try and get a round a minute or faster!

Tuesday – Tank Top Tuesday Indeed!

The weather may be cooler, but that won’t keep us from a good back and chest workout.  Weighted pull-ups, strict pull-ups, and kipping pull-ups to start, followed by bench press and rowing after!

Wednesday – Amanda

One of the newer CrossFit Girl WODs, 9-7-5 of muscle ups and full snatches at 135/95.  We’ll have plenty of modifications for the workout today as it’s meant to be between 5 and 10 minutes!

Thursday – abs abs abs

4 rounds of 25 sit-ups, 50 ft kb walking lunge, and double unders.  That’s right!  Not just a front rack carry this time!

Friday – burpee, sprint, jog

E3MOM perform 10 burpees and a 100 m sprint with an easy jog back.  These should be hard, anaerobic intervals with some active recovery!

Saturday – Partner up!

3 rounds each of DB clean and jerks and calorie ski/bike/row, then switch to overhead squats and knees to elbows!  Longer duration interval workout today!
