Monday, September 10th

Workout: For Time - Inspired by Coach Mary

1 Mile Run
100 Ball Slams - Every minute on the minute 5 Toes to Bar (5 knee tucks)
1 Mile Run

*Mary initially suggested three miles but two seems like a good number. Once you return from the run every time the clock hits the top of the minute you’ll stop and perform five toes to bar.  If a mile is taking over 12 minutes scale the run back to 800m, we want to make sure we get both ends of the sandwich in this workout.


Tuesday, September 11th

Conditioning: Every Minute on the Minute for 10 Minutes

5 Shoulder to Overhead (135/95)

*Return on investment at its finest. If you're scaling the conditioning, choose a weight that you can do unbroken. Same with the double unders…something you can get going on without a ton of breaks. Today's workout is a grinder; try to keep a consistent pace throughout the 15 minutes.

Thursday, September 13th

Workout: For Time

1 Ring Muscle Up (Bar/2 Strict Pullups)
2 Overhead Squats (165/115)
2 Ring Muscle Up (Bar/4 Strict Pullups)
4 Overhead Squats

6 Overhead Squats
4 Ring Muscle Up (Bar/8 Strict Pullups)
8 Overhead Squats
5 Ring Muscle Up (Bar/10 Strict Pullups)
10 Overhead Squats

*This is a challenge: heavy overhead squat + the hardest gymnastic movement. You can squat snatch your first rep or clean and jerk from the back rack. Please scale the muscle ups if any more than three failed attempts on one set.


Friday, September 14th

Workout: For Time

1000m Row

-into-

3 Rounds
21 Deadlifts (155/105)
15 Barbell Burpees
9 Shoulder to Overhead (155/105)

-into-

1000m Row

*Gut check to finish the week. Deadlifts and the shoulder to overheads should be done in big sets; goal should be no more than 2 sets on each barbell. Nothing better than 1000m sprint to take you into the weekend!


Saturday, September 15th

Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 16 Minutes - With a Partner - Relay Style

21 Double Unders (30 singles)
15 DB Snatch (50/35)
9 Pullups

Workouts for the Week: September 3 - September 8

Monday, September 3rd

Strength:

3 Push Press + 1 Push Jerk
3 Push Press + 2 Push Jerk
3 Push Press + 3 Push Jerk
3 Push Press + Max Effort Push Jerk

*The push press will be the limiting factor…the sets start once its begins to get heavy

Workout: 9 Minute Ladder  - 3/6/9/12/15/18/...(increase by 3 reps throughout time)

Handstand Pushups
Shoulder to Overhead (135/95)
Burpees

*Boulders for shoulders today. In strength really focus on aggressively pressing on the push press; the push jerks will be the easy part. In the workout be smart about breaking up the sets as the numbers increase; going to failure isn’t a great idea in the first few minutes. Have some pacing and peak as we get close to the finish line.


Tuesday, September 4th

Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 21 Minutes

200m Med Ball Run
20 Wall Balls
8 Deadlifts (275/185)
1 Rope Climb (4 dips)

*Going for distance! Again, pace is important...steadily increasing speed as we go is our goal.  The deadlifts should not be done in singles; this should be a weight we string together. If its small sets by the end that’s fine but the less times we have to tighten up to load the body for the weight the better. If you're scaling pick a deadlift weight that is challenging…these should feel moderately heavy. If running with the medball is too much scale back to just a run. Bring a sweat towel and enjoy!


Wednesday, September 5th

Strength: Climbing in Weight - 2-2-2-2-2-2

Hang Snatch

Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 15 Minutes - Inspired by Bergeron

30 Double Unders (50 singles)
15 Power Snatch (75/55)
30 Double Unders (50 Singles)
15 Toes to Bar (1:1 Knee Tucks)

*Today’s strength gives us a chance to focus on good positioning…the hang allows us to get a perfect start from the knees. Make sure we are taking out all the slack before we start but the coaches will remind you as they review the movements. If you are new to The Rock or new to CrossFit this is a good opportunity to practice our cleans and continue refining that movement. Today’s workout is a little longer and a lot of double unders…make sure we stay moving and if anything is really slowing us down be sure to scale. The snatches in the workout should be very light and please do not drop the barbell from overhead as you’re finishing your sets.


Thursday, September 6th

6 Reps (185/125)
4 Reps (205/145)
2 Reps (225/155)

*Nice swole sesh to close out the week. Strength give us the opportunity to prepare for today's workout but use the time to move some heavy loads as you get close to the end of the 10 minutes. Plan your jumps accordingly if you’re scaling. Singles in the workout today are fine, just no push jerks at the top of those thrusters!
