Workouts: Week of Feb. 1st

Filed under: workouts — Tags: , , , — Micah Vandegrift @ 8:29 am

Congrats to those who made it through No-Beer January! If only we had been consistent with our workouts, maybe we would have seen drastic results… on to PaleoLent!

WOD 1 – Tuesday

Heavy Front Squat
3-3-3-3
and then,

Five rounds for time of:
6 Pistols (3 each leg)
12 Knees to Elbows
18 Wallballs (Guys need to get the medicine ball to the corner of the wall and ceiling)

(If you cannot do a controlled unassisted pistol, stand on top of your box and allow your non-squatting leg to hang off the side. If that is still difficult, use a set of rings or a post to help you maintain your balance.)

WOD 2 – Wednesday

Press
5-5-5
and then,

For max reps:
One minute of Kettlebell Swings (24/16 kg)
One minute of Burpees
One minute of Pull-Ups
One minute of Hang Squat Cleans (75#/55#);
then 45 seconds of each movement;
then 30 seconds of each movement;
then finish with 15 seconds of each movement.
(The entire workout should take you exactly 10 minutes. Keep a running total of and report your completed reps.)

WOD 3 – Friday

Heavy Thrusters 3-3-3-3-3
then,

For time:
800 Meter Run
25 Walking Lunges with 45#/25# plate overhead
25 Pull-Ups
25 Knees to Elbows
25 Walking Lunges with 45#/25# plate overhead
50 Wall Ball Shots
25 Walking Lunges with 45#/25# plate overhead
25 Pull-Ups
25 Knees to Elbows
800 Meter Run

WOD 4 – Saturday

“The Bear”

Perform a total of 5 rounds, completing 7 sets of the following sequence each round, without setting the bar down:

Hang Power Clean
Front Squat
Push Press
Back Squat
Push Press (from behind the neck)
The object is to move the most weight possible without setting the bar down.  If the bar touches the floor the round is over. Perform this with a partner.  You rest while your partner performs a round.  Multiply weight times movements for a final score. If this still doesn’t make sense, watch this video.  Keep in mind this wod is not for time. The idea is to move as much weight as possible for a total of 7 sets each round.

Deadlift
5-5-5
(Warm up to a heavy five rep set. Once you have found a weight that is almost too difficult to lift five times with proper posture, attempt to stay at that weight and complete two more sets of five. Your lift shall be considered a failure if you fail to maintain proper posture throughout the movement. We are looking for technical perfection for all five reps of a set.)

4 Tabata cycles of Back Squat (195/105 lbs.)
4 Tabata cycles of Front Squat (145/85 lbs.)
4 Tabata cycles of Overhead Squat (95/65 lbs.)
(Athletes will work in groups of three. One athlete will complete the entire workout – a total of six minutes – before reloading the bar and assisting his or her partners. Non-moving partners will help strip the weight off the bar during the 10 second rest periods between movements.)
