Strength:

EMOTM 10
Odd Minutes: 10 Ring Dips *strict* http://youtu.be/I0mxljv5ozw
Even Minutes: 10 Toes to Bar / Knees to Chest

MetCon: (Cap 15)

For Time:
50 Cal Row
75 Burpees
100 Double Unders

Today we work on some gymnastic strength development with strict dips and Toes to Bar. Ring dips are great for our upper body extensors and stabilizers, including our muscles of the shoulders, tricep, and even pectoralis major and minor. Toes to Bar train the muscles that assist us in global flexion such as the lats, abdomen, and hips.

WOD for Wednesday, 10/18/17

By | Strength Programming, WOD | No Comments

Strength: (20 mins)

5RM Back Squat then 5 @ 95%, 5 @90%

MetCon: (Cap 17)

5RFT:
10 Single Arm KB Squat (*KB in front rack) 1.5/1pd (Right Arm)
10 Single Arm KB Squat (Left Arm)
20 American KB Swings
20 Sit-ups

After developing strength in our front squat we will train its ability to carry unbalanced loads. When we carry weight on only one side of the body in creates a unique challenge for stabilizers. Muscles like obliques and transverse abdominals must stabilize the load so primary movers like the glutes and quadricep can apply force.

WOD for Monday, 10/16/17

By | Skill, Strength Programming, WOD | No Comments

Strength/Skill:

Handstand Holds / Shoulder Taps 5x30secs

MetCon: (Cap 2o mins)

“Wooba”
AMRAP 20
15 Wall Balls 20/14#
10 Deadlift @ BW
5 HSPU / 2 Wall Climb

We begin class with some inverted gymnastic drills working up to handstand holds and Shoulder Taps for time. At the heart of handstands, handstand walks, and handstand push-ups is the stability required throughout the body which can be developed in the handstand hold. If you can safely hold a Handstand easily you will progress to Shoulder Taps which can help you advance to handstand walking. Our MetCon is in honor of our King of the Hill, Mike Warburton. This is a workout of his design.

WOD for Friday, 10/13/17

Strength: (12 mins)

4 Rounds:
12 DB Floor Press https://youtu.be/8cYqY12Aze4
10 (each) Bulgarian Split Squat

MetCon: (Cap 10 mins)

AMRAP 10
+3 Thruster 95/65#
+3 Toes to Bar

Today’s Strength Circuit includes the Bulgarian Split Squat. It is similar to the lunge, a single leg extension exercise. Single leg exercises just like the single leg RDL can be great tools of assessment and correction if there is a noticeable difference in performance from one side to another. It is best to prioritize single leg stability before progressing the exercise and adding weight.

Long -Lever  RKC Plank: 5rnds 30:30

More core stability and positioning is emphasized today with the long-lever RKC plank. It is important to train the body into a stable position by driving the pelvis in neutral or posterior tilt while managing lumbar extension and rib cage flare. We are placing them at the end of the workout to develop the strength after being pre-exhasuted.
