Weekly WODs: 

Monday – Show off those Shoulders

We’ve got plenty of overhead movements in today’s strength and conditioning. We start today’s workload with a strength piece as we build to a heavy 2-rep strict press. Our conditioning today will be in EMOM format and will include burpees over the bar, power snatches, and more pressing.

 

Tuesday – Pulling Paradise

Our conditioning piece for today’s workout will increase in complexity as time goes on. Our triple AMRAP incorporates tons of horizontal and vertical pulling. We have sumo deadlifts, kipping pull-ups, chest-to-bar pull-ups, running intervals, and renegade rows in store for day 2.

 

Wednesday  – Squat Day (Week 6)

The bar will be moving a lot slower this week as we head into week 6 of our squat cycle. We’ve got one more build week ahead which will be followed by our test week. Make the most of your 5 sets of 5, or 5 sets of 3 this week. If you are feeling great today try adding a two second pause in the hole on each rep. We finish up today’s workout with a fun race of rowing, sit-ups, and air squats.

 

Thursday  – Hinge Binge

Our workout for today allows you the opportunity to earn your rest. We have five 4 minute intervals of Russian swings , single-arm front rack step-ups, and box jump overs. We’ll finish today’s workout off with bird dogs and quad heel taps. Bird dogs are an excellent exercise to build stability, decrease back pain, and encourage great posture.

 

Friday  – “DT”

We lucked out this week! We have heavy deadlifts followed by the infamous “DT”.  We’ll set a heavy 2 rep deadlift followed by 5 rounds of 12 deadlifts, 9 hang power cleans, and 6 shoulder to overhead. Bring an extra set of forearms in your gym bag today!

 

Saturday  – Crossfit/Level 2

Our workout for both classes this weekend is only 2 sets. Seems easy, Right? Most of the time it’s easier said than done. We’ll be getting after 2 sets of biking calories, single dumbbell thrusters, and toes to bar in our conditioning. Level 2 will have an gymnastics strength piece of pull-ups and push-ups.

 

Saturday  – Burn

Sumo Saturday is upon us! We have an alternating EMOM of Up-Down Step ups and bike calories followed by another EMOM of sumo deadlift high pulls and bike calories. Our goal today is to get out of our comfort zone on the bike and hold a challenging RPM throughout both EMOMs.
