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

*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)

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)

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.

*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!

80 Double Unders (200 Singles)
40 Handstand Pushups (50 Pushups)
20 Power Snatch (165/105)

*If you are going RX in the workout you should be hitting the RX weight in the Strength portion. If 165/105 is your PR then its too heavy for the workout...find something heavy but you can continue to hit at the end. If anything along the way brings you to a halt we should draw the line there and go the scaled route. You hear us preach a lot about “desired stimulus” and at no point in this workout should we get stopped in our tracks…that’s why they call it a chipper.

*Eat your Wheaties! Go hard on the conditioning as you have the built in rest…whether your number is 100 or 50 find something challenging. Not going to lie, 100 will be hard to finish! When we get to the workout, make that bacon sizzle...it's short but effective.

No walking today…have to keep it at least a jog.

*Pacing early is important. We want to peak as the workout is near the end. Know what will slow you down and scale back in those areas if you need to. Consider scaling to a shorter run, single unders, or lighter cleans?


Friday, August 10th

Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 12 Minutes

9 Toes to Bar (knee tucks)
6 Box Jumps (30/24)
3 Squat Snatch (135/95)

*Get to the top shelf on the box jumps today. As you’ve heard me say before these should not be a “Jesus-take-the-wheel-I-hope-I-make-it-up-there" kind of box jump. You should be jumping to something we can do repetitively with confidence. These snatches should also not look like 1 rep max attempts; keep them smooth and consistent throughout the 12 minutes.

Hero Workout - “Saman”

This workout is in honor of retired Thai Navy SEAL and Petty Office First Class Saman Kunan.

SAMAN.PNG
 

 

Khun Saman died while diving through a flooded cave (Tham Luang) supplying air tanks to a group of 12 young students and their coach who were trapped 3.2 kilometers into the flooded cave. He successfully delivered the tanks, but died on the return dive on July 6.

Khun Saman was 38 years old, and volunteered for the mission to rescue the boys. The rescue involved dozens of people from many different countries, with a very dangerous and complex rescue into a flooded cave with extremely narrow passages.

All of the children and their coach were successfully rescued.

Khun Saman’s widow, Waleeporn Kunan told the BBC "Saman once said we never knew when we would die. We can't control that, so we need to cherish every day.” 

 

 

Workout: "Saman" - 8 Rounds For Time (Solo or With a Partner)

13 Deadlifts (185/125)
17 Wall Balls
400m Run

*While we are honoring a hero we still need to be smart and safe. Consider partnering up for this hero workout. 40-45min Time Cap. Puts all the first world complaining we do in perspective. Godspeed.

CrossFit Seminar Staff member James Hobart demonstrates the single-dumbbell overhead squat.


Thursday, July 26th

Workout: For TimeCourtesy of Froning

18-15-12-9-6-3
Front Squats (135/95)
Bar-Facing Burpees (space permitting)

Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 8 Minutes

50 Double Unders (50 singles)
15 Strict Press (75/55)

Tuesday, July 17th

Strength: 12 Minutes

Find a Heavy Power Snatch double for the day

Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 20 Minutes - With a Partner

30 Hang Squat Snatch (45/35)
15 Toes to Bar (1:1 knee tucks)

*Partner A will workout through the couplet, Partner B will complete a 400m Run…Partner B will pick up where Partner A stops after they return from the run.

Notes: Snatches can also be quick singles today…try to avoid the starfish and work out that pull under the bar.  It’s the volume not the weight that will add up in the workout. Coaches should never hear a bar “hit” the ground…be so gentle that it doesn’t make a sound
