Workouts for the Week: August 20 - August 25

Monday, August 20th

Strength: 10 Minutes

Work up to a Heavy Power Snatch for the day

Workout: For Time

1 Mile Run
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.

Tuesday, August 21st

Conditioning: 24 Minute Cap

100 Burpee Box Jump Overs
*One minute of work, one minute of rest. Continue to 100 or a scaled amount.

Workout: As Many Rounds as Possible in 7 Minutes

8 Pushups
8 Alternating DB Snatch (50/35)

*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's short but effective.
