CrossFit WOD Tuesday July 16th 2019

10/7 Cal Assault Bike or Row or 100m Sprint

immediately into;

B.) Every 3min. x 5 Rounds:
10/7 Cal Assault Bike or Row or 100m Sprint
10 Toes-To-Bar
*3 Power Cleans (climbing)

The scaled version of this today is just going to be working your form. Try 5 light reps every round instead of climbing.

You can go up every round or every other round. Do what makes you feel good, but keep technique numero uno today. If you’re feeling saucy and you really want to hit a max throughout the workout, go for it 😉

*For the record, the only rest you’re getting is the rest you earn from finishing early. If you do this right, you should be done in 90sec. – 2min. range.

C.) Pick one:
1.) 400m Farmer Carry 70/53s
2.) Partner Planks with 45/35lb plate. 1min. on x 1min. off x 4 Rounds each.
3.) 5min. AMRAP with a partner:
Max Sandbag over the shoulder with the heaviest bag possible.  (You do 5, I do 5 style.)

*No kipping on the pull ups, use a band or do HARD ring rows

Was feeling something long and fun today. It’s been a while since we’ve done something like this.

If you can workout it out with a few other people at the same station, you may climb a little in weight on the bench. Just try to not to increase it so much that you’re taking more than 2 sets to finish.

Also, try and swing a heavier KB today than normal. Try the 88lb for men and the 70 for some of you ladies. You’d be surprised that you can actually swing it, I promise!

3 reps EMOM x 3min.
2 reps EMOM x 3min.

*start with something around 50-60% effort and build whenever you feel comfortable. Ideally, you would keep the same weight the 3s and 2s and then make bigger jumps on the singles at the end.
*Today is a great day to focus on form, especially because it’s from the hang and there’s multiple reps. Be sure to keep your shoulders OVER the bar as you hinge forward into your hang position. You should feel tension on the hamstrings if you do it right.

A.) Back Squat (Recovery week 4 of 4)
5 x 40%
5 x 50%
5 X 60%
*Today is a good day to squat to a ball or anything else that is 12″ tall. Let your butt touch the object, let your hips relax while still keeping you back curvature, and pop up. Should help you get lower than normal and also give you more confidence and form feedback.

Every 5min. x 4 Rounds:
15 Thrusters (95/65)
