December is a crazy time of year for all of us. With changes in our work, school, holiday schedules it is difficult to follow a periodized program like we have over the past year. So, for the rest of the month we will be testing your strengths randomly! Let’s grab some last minute PRs before 2017 is over.

By | Stability, Strength Programming, WOD | No Comments

Warm Up:

50 Hip Bridges
2x Green Mile
20 Wall Squats

Strength: (30 mins)

In 30 minutes total as much weight as possible:
3RM Back Squat
3RM Front Squat
3RM OH Squat


1min ME Calorie Row

Let’s get spicy. The last week before Christmas break is going to start off the a unique strength test. In 30 minutes you will need to perform a 3RM Back Squat then move on to establish a 3RM Front Squat then finish by establishing a 3RM Overhead Squat. Combine the heaviest weight of each lift. Then perform a 1min ME Calorie Row. Take those calories and add them to your combined weight. That number will be your score for the day.

4 Rounds:
30sec Wall sit
-15sec Rest
30sec Side Plank
-15sec Rest
30sec Side Plank
-15sec Rest
30sec Hollow Hold
-15sec Rest

MetCon: (Cap 20 mins)

5 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
10 Push-ups
15 Jump Squats (minimum 6 inch jump)

You read that right, today’s MetCon is 15 rounds for time!  The workout is similar to an inverted “Cindy”. Rather than 20 minutes of 5,10,15 and collecting rounds your goal will be to attempt to complete the 15 rounds within the 20 minutes which may be very difficult. If you’re not going to finish it is still important to collect as many reps as you can.
