Filed under: workouts — Tags: , , , , , — Micah Vandegrift @ 10:46 pm

WOD 1 – Tuesday

Max Effort Wall Jump (I will be marking the wall with tape every three inches up to the ceiling. Stand next to the wall and jump as high as you can, trying to touch the highest mark as possible. Record the number of the marker you reach.)
and then,

For time:
Run 400 meters
60 Wall Ball Shots (20/12)
Run 400 meters
40 Wall Ball Shots
Run 400 meters
20 Wall Ball Shots
Run 400 meters

WOD 2 – Wednesday

(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.)
and then,

Five rounds for time of:
10 Each Arm – One-Arm KettleBell Snatch
10 Pull-Ups

WOD 3 – Friday

Overhead Squat
and then,

As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:
10 Ring Dips
15 Burpees
20-yard Bear Crawl

WOD 4 – Saturday

Max Rep Pull-Ups
Take a few minutes to warm up, and then with a partner counting, establish your personal best for consecutive pull-ups,
and then,

“Tabata Squats”
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.)
