Front Squat
5 x 3 @ 65-70%
*3 second pause in bottom
*no bouncing in the bottom

Each rep needs to have a 3 second pause in the bottom. Interestinly enough a pause implies zero motion, so no bouncing in the bottom. The idea is to build brute strength & speed out of the bottom of the squat.

Front Squat (185/125)
STO (185/125)
7 min cap

Today is a heavy sprint. You’ll bounce back and forth between the two movements. The main goal would be to get both movements unbroken in a set. If that’s not going to happen shoot for unbroken movements….5 squats then 5 STO.

Post WOD
Roll quads & glutes. Finish with a lax ball on your shoulders.

7 x 2 @ 75%

Split Squat
3 x 8 (each leg)

Use a weight that you can move well with. If your form on that movement isn’t up to par please scale to back rack lunges. There will be a video posted below of a split squat.

For Time
Run 400m
20 Burpee Box Jumps (24/20)
30 Wall Balls (20/14)

We want everyone to finish this. Talk to your coach if you need scaling options. Find a pace on your run that will allow you to get back with enough time on the clock, but also leave you with some gas in the tank. Once you hit the wall balls it’s game on. Go big! Unbroken if possible.

Bar Complex
1 Clean (Full) + 2 Jerks (Split)

Try to find a heavy complex of the above in 7 sets. Use the split jerk, recompose yourself once you catch the bar on your shoulders after the first jerk. That is the point where you can easily get out of position. Keep it on your shoulders (off your chest) and finish driving your feet into the floor to get a good lift off before driving yourself UNDER the bar.

Good Mornings
3 x 10

Place a barbell behind your neck as you would for a back squat, place your feet between your pulling position and squat position, and set your back tightly in a complete arch, locking it in position with tight abs. Allowing your knees to unlock and bend only very slightly, hinge at the hip, maintaining the back arch, bend forward as far as you can without losing the arch in the back. When you reach the bottom, reverse the motion, being sure to not let the arch soften or your knees bend any more, and return to standing. –Catalyst Athletics

***There will be no 8:30 class this morning. Sorry for the inconvenience.***

Back Squat
5 x 3 @ 80-90%

We’re working sets of 3 today. Today is similar to RPE (Rate of Perceived Exertion) training. Pick a weight  somewhere at or between 80-90% of your max. If it’s a good day work around 90%, if it’s not a good day work at or closer to 80%. Get to know yourself and work with what you brought to the gym today!

Thruster (75/55)
Kettlebell Swing (1.5/1)
15 T2B after each round

The thrusters are light today, take them in big chunks. Knock out the swings unbroken if you can. The T2B come after each round. So that means you will finish the WOD with the T2B.

Post WOD
Roll your lats, quads & hamstrings. Spend some time with a lax ball on your delts and traps.
