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

*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.

Wednesday, September 12th

Power Clean + Push Jerk
Heavy as Possible

Workout: For Time - Courtesy of Chad Williams

50 Abmat Situp Buy-In


Wall Balls
Box Jumps


50 Abmat Situp Cash-Out

*Clean and Jerks should be touch and go during today's strength. Work on clean transitions from catching the bar in the dip and going directly into the jerk. Today's workout is sprint style…do your best to go unbroken!

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


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


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


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)

*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

Workout: For Time

Calorie Row
Dumbbell Hang Cleans (50/35)

*Looks easy on paper right? We’ll see.

8 Reps (155/105)
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!

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.

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

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.



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)

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

He enjoyed training CrossFit with his friends and colleagues, especially when the workouts involved running or power cleans.

He is survived by his wife, Channing, and son, Josie Jr.

*Please hold yourself accountable on these burpees…make sure we are jumping and extending our hips at the top.  90 Burpees is also a lot…scale back to 15 or 20 if needed.  Same for the run, 800m is a great option as well.  I love starting the week with a Hero, reminds us the world is bigger than our first world problems sometimes.  I’m pumped to do this one myself tomorrow morning…I’ll let you guys know how it goes in the Desert Heat!

*User choice for todays strength/gymnastics. Muscleups can be bar or ring and pullups should be jumping so setup accordingly. Workout is on the heavy side which is why we are going only 15 minutes for strength to give you plenty of time to warmup up to the heavy snatch and overhead squat.

6 Toes to Bar (8 situps)

100 Push Press (75/55)
50 Toes to Bar (1:1 knee tucks)

*Just because you see that 75/55 as RX…know that you will need to do massive sets.  5-10 reps for the first few sets probably isn’t enough…keep that in mind. That being said keep in under control…these should be smooth and fluid, not like a fish trying to get back in the river. 

And whatever you do…do not drop the bar from overhead.
