Warm-up Drills
I. Row 500m
II. 2-3 Rounds of
5 x Power Snatch (PVC/Barbell)
7 x Push-ups
10 x Hollow Rocks
10 x PVC Passthroughs
III. Scorpion Sandwich & Mobility

Impact/Focus: Gymnastic Strength
Select from the following for Muscle-up or Pull-up & Ring Dip training options and execute the sets/reps every 2:00 for 5 Rounds total:

I. Strict or Kipping Muscle-ups x 5 reps
II. Scaled Low Ring Muscle-ups x 7 reps
III. Strict Pull-ups & Ring Dips x 7 reps each
IV. Ring Rows & Push-ups x 7 reps each

Notes:

  • Each 2:00 work interval is intended to leave time remaining for rest after completing the selected assignments.
  • Halt work efforts and adjust rep assignments as needed if it is taking longer than :75 seconds.
  • Option II will be an instructed approach for all athletes today as a basis for understanding the Muscle-up movement and how to develop the ability to perform them in training.
  • Beginning with a kneeling start the athlete will execute a strict Ring Pull-up (self assisted with lower body) , applying the ‘false grip’ and moving through the Muscle-up Transition.
  • From the bottom of the Dip athletes will press to the Ring Support position or jump assist to Ring Support position.
  • The negative should be as strict and controlled as possible and is equal in value to the development of strength and coordination aspects of these movement skill sets.

“Camphor”
Complete as many Rounds & Reps as possible (AMRAP) in 15:00 of
2 x Muscle-ups
4 x Power Snatch (95/65lbs)

  • Scaling for Muscle-ups will be assigned as 4 reps of Pull-ups/Banded Pull-us or 6 reps of Jumping Pull-ups.
  • Adjust weight on the Power Snatch as necessary to facilitate barbell cycling for multiple rep sets per round. Reps will remain 1:1.
  • Burpee Box Jump Overs may be scaled to a Burpee Box Step Over as necessary. These reps also will remain the same for scaled WOD formats.

10-7 reps x x Deadlift (climbing weight towards 85% of 1RM)
5-4-3-2-1 reps x Deadlift (North of 85% of 1RM)

Notes:

  • If no prior deadlift rep records exist then we will be working on applying the learning fundamentals of this movement and working on consistency of proper points of performance (ie. safe technique and movement proficiency).
  • Athletes may climb weight as able or maintain weight for all sets/reps.
  • The 10 and 7 rep sets are built in as tracked warm-up weights on the clock; this allows a touch on the practice of higher rep sets and mixed grip practice.
  • Athletes may also reference a projected 1RM starting number to base sets/reps percentages. See your Coach(s) for guidance as needed.

Warm-up Drills
I. Row 500m
II. Foam Rolling Regimen
III. Scorpion Sandwhich
IV. Mobility

Notes: Overhead Mobility Emphasis with Foam Rolling and Mobility Drills.

Impact/Focus: Pull-ups & Inchworm Push-ups EMOTM
Warm-up for Strict Pull-ups and get comfortable with the Inchworms + Push-ups complex; perform individual mobility efforts to ensure the required range of motion for each is consistently executed per respective tasks.

Every minute on the minute for 12:00 total work through the following;

Odd Minutes: 5 to 8 reps x Strict Pull-ups
Even Minutes: 1 to 5 x Inchworms to Push-ups

Notes:

  • Most intervals should have an aim of being completed in :30 to :45 seconds with time remaining for transitioning movements and a brief respite for recovery.
  • Pull-ups today will scale to banded Pull-ups without a Kip or Strict Ring Row.
  • To perform Inchworm Push-ups:
  • 1. Begin with hands and feet next to one another.
  • 2. On the way out into the plank portion of the Inchworm movement complete 1 x Push-up.
  • 3. After the Push-up continue walking the hands out as far as possible before baby steppin’ those little hooves back up to the feet.
  • 4. Repeat the process with a pause for 2, 3, 4, & 5 reps of Push-ups following each subsequent Inchworm.
  • 5. Begin again at 1 after making it through the first mini ladder during the odd minutes of the EMOTM.
  • Testing progress in the Pull-ups? A great way to establish whether or not you’re ready for the move to banded Pull-ups from Ring Rows is to navigate multiple rounds at 8 reps and be able to sustain that workload throughout. Yahtzee.

“Esoteric”
5 Rounds for time of
7 x Shoulder-to-Overhead (135/95lbs)
15 x GHD Sit-ups
40 x Double-unders

Notes:

  • Scale Shoulder-to-Overhead as necessary to a weight that may be re-racked from the finish position for multiple reps each round.
  • Practice and emphasis today will be on position during this re-rack today for maintaining movement efficiency.
  • While we will let Push Press and Press into the mix today what we ideally are looking for is the most dynamic (ie. Push Jerk, efficiency of movement) method the athlete can utilize throughout.
  • Scaling to Single-unders will be 80 reps, scaled volume of Double-unders will be 25 per round.
