I. Run 4-800m
II. 15-12-9 for quality of
Medicine Ball Clean
Deadbugs
PVC Passthroughs
III. Mobility/Yoga Poses
(Emphasis ankles, knees, hips)

Impact/Focus: General Strength & Conditioning EMOTM

Work through the following EMOTM for 10:00 with the athlete’s choice of a Barbell, one Dumbbell/Kettlbell, or two Dumbbells/Kettlebells as follows:

3 reps of Power Clean
+
3 reps of Push Jerk
+
3 reps of Front Squat

Selecting the rep scheme challenge that best facilitates the following points of performance for today;

1. applied hip function in the dip and drive effectively and 2. a reminder through the use of footwork today (athlete’s preference: ie, use a split jerk as necessary if that is their dynamic overhead lifting movement of choice).
3. Barbells work for those with them as the best case scenario. Use a light to moderate load with barbell work today (135/95lbs or 50-60%1RM Push Jerk/Split Jerk as heaviest weight used).
4. Dumbbells may be done both arms together for the same number of reps as the barbell option. 1-arm option must be done on the minute for BOTH arms if only one weight is available.

Barbell EMOTM X 10:00
3 x Power Clean (135/95lbs)
3 x Push Jerk (135/95lbs)
3 x Front Squat (135/95lbs)

Dumbbells/KBs (2) EMOTM X 10:00
3 x Power Clean (2 x Dumbbells/KBs)
3 x Push Jerk (2 x Dumbbells/KBs)
3 x Front Squat (2 x Dumbbells/KBs)

Dumbbell/KB (1) EMOTM X 10:00
3 x Left-arm Power Clean
3 x Left-arm Push Jerk
3 x Left-arm Front Squat
3 x Right-arm Power Clean
3 x Right-arm Push Jerk
3 x Right-arm Front Squat

Rx+ Increase by 1 repetition per movement per round.

“Slow is Smooth, Smooth is Fast”

“Charlotte”
Complete For Time;
Using as light a weight as possible to ensure Overhead Squat form is ideal or that such form is effectively being trained.

21-18-15-12-9-6 kcal/reps of
Row (kcal)
Overhead Squat (75/65lbs)

Notes: Effectively scaling the movement is how we train those skills and abilities we are still working to achieve. An example or two here include using a box as a squat depth target or even scaling to holding one arm/weight overhead and performing double the rep assignment per round for Overhead Lunges in Place.
One scaling example would have the athlete Row 21kcal and then perform 42 x 1-arm Overhead Lunges in Place, switching arms as often as needed as long as 21 reps end up being completed on each side.
Volume scaling as an example would be performing the movements rx’d or scaled, for time with reps/rounds as 15-12-9-6-3-1. Just some ideas that some might find helpful/inspiring if training solo today.

Memorial Day “MURPH” 05.25.2020

By Samy Daghir / May 24, 2020 / 5 Comments

“No greater love than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”

“MURPH” @9amhttps://us04web.zoom.us/j/79315338626

Meeting ID: 793 1533 8626


Warm-up Drills
I. Run 400m/Row 500m
II. 3 Rounds of
5 x Jumping/Scap Pull-ups
5-7 x Push-ups/Hindu Push-ups
10 x Rev.Lunges In Place/Shrimp Squats

“Murph”
For time
1 mile Run
100 x Pull-ups
200 x Push-ups
300 x Air Squats
1 mile Run

In memory of Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, 29, of Patchogue, N.Y., who was killed in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.
This workout was one of Mike’s favorites and he’d named it “Body Armor”. From here on it will be referred to as “Murph” in honor of the focused warrior and great American who wanted nothing more in life than to serve this great country and the beautiful people who make it what it is.

Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.

ADDITIONAL SCALING NOTES:

Modified Volume Scaling would be to cut the distances to 800m and the rep volumed in half to 50/100/150 reps per movement at Rx level or with the substitutions subsequently suggested below.

If athlete’s have no Pull-up bar and have been progression with regular training via the Swing and Snatch (1 and 2 arm versions) movements then substitute one of the folowing:
100 x American KB Swings at a heavy/challenging weight of 24/16kg or heavier if able.
100 (50L+50R) x 1-arm Snatch with the Dumbbell, alternating arms every repetition during working sets is viable as a substitute for those without Kettlebells.

SET & REP STRATEGIES:
1. Complete Unpartitioned as
100 x Pull-ups
200 x Push-ups
300 x Air Squats
*In Order.

2. Complete ‘Cindy’ Style as
20 Rounds of
5 x Pull-ups
10 x Push-ups
15 x Air squats

3. Complete 33 Rounds of
3 x Pull-ups
6 x Push-ups
9 x Air Squats
Then… + 1 Pull-up, 2 Push-ups, 3 Air Squats as a final 34th Round.

These are just examples based on different athlete levels with the various movements and conditioning components.

Impact/Focus: CrossFit Endurance WOD & TGU’s
Select from the following interval format training options below

1. CrossFit Endurance WOD
Swim, Bike Run, or Row
1min on, 1 min off,
1 min on x :50 sec rest,
1 min on x :40 sec rest,
1 min on x :30 sec rest,
1 min on x :20 sec rest,
1 min on x :10 sec rest,
then go back up the ladder until you finish with
1 min on x :50 sec rest,
1 min on x Done.

2. Turkish Get-ups
1min on, 1 min off,
1 min on x :50 sec rest,
1 min on x :40 sec rest,
1 min on x :30 sec rest,
1 min on x :20 sec rest,
1 min on x :10 sec rest,
then go back up the ladder until you finish with
1 min on x :50 sec rest,
1 min on x Done.

Notes: Light to moderate Kettlebell weights, athletes may change weights as they proceed through. Objectives include continuous effort movement for as much of each work interval as possible. Rowing or running recovery efforts can include active movement for rest periods, however, this changes the effort output on the work side of each minute task. Work hard, but be deliberate in efforts to improve movement proficiency and competency.

“Anupdown”
For time
10 x Dumbbell Devil’s Press
(1-arm = 50/35lbs | 2 arms =35/20lbs)
15 x Over-Unders (@ 12-18”)
20 x Reverse Wallball (20/14lbs)
25 x Wallball (20/14lbs)

25 x Wallball (20/14lbs)
20 x Reverse Wallball (20/14lbs)
15 x Over-Unders (Rope hung at 18”)
10 x Dumbbell Devil’s Press

Notes: 20:00 time cap advised. The Over-unders can be any set-up with a rope tied across two objects to hang at 12-18” from the deck. Box Jump over set-up with something to crawl underneath also works well for this today. Climb over something, crawl under something = 1 rep. Maintain hold on Reverse and Wallball as needed based on availability of overhead target height for the movement.
