6/4/15 “Low Grade”

 In Workout of the Day


Mobility:  Hips

Skill Practice Warm Up: None.

Strength:  Power Clean – Session 10

5 x 3 (5 sets of 3 reps, “across,” same weight for each set)

Superset: Ring Dip / Ring Push Up

5 x 5 (5 sets of 5 reps, if doing Ring push ups stay at the same angle)

You should be at 90-100% of your max. If you have been using weight for the ring dips try and use the same that you used when we did triples. If these go well today you can add more weight during the next cycle of 7×3, 6×4, and 5×5’s. If you are doing ring push ups try and lower your angle but make sure all 5 reps are good and your whole body is moving together, no ‘Cobra’ push ups, this isn’t yoga.

Metabolic Conditioning: “Low Grade” – 7 Minute AMRAP.

10 Dumbbell Push Presses (A: 45lbs , I*: 30lbs, N: 20lbs)

40 foot bear crawl (20’ out and 20’ back)

20 abmat sit ups

*Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx)

Coaching Tips: Crawl as fast as you can.  If you get tired, don’t crawl slower and fight to finish the distance. Just holding yourself in the ‘bear crawl’ position takes energy, so crawl in fast intervals and drop down when you need to rest.  If you ever get the ‘dreaded raspberry’ when you do a lot of abmat sit ups focus on keeping your hips glued to the ground so they are not moving up and down each rep.

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 1 min wall ball, 1 min row, 2 rounds
