You can chose to tackle the wod 2 ways. You can keep the weights and scaling options the very same as the last time and try to beat your time. Or you can chose to go a bit heavier and push yourself to make the workout harder. Both approaches are perfect are still a a test of overall fitness!

Technique Tuesday

We are introducing a new movement to some of you today folks – the Push Jerk! It is a step up from the Push Press as it means that you can lift more weight overhead by doing a ‘double dip’.

Part A

Push Jerk x 3 reps

or Push Press x 5 reps (Practice Push Jerk technique between sets)

Wall Climbs x 2 reps (Hold for 5 sec at least)

Mobilise shoulders between sets – lie on roller etc..

 

Part B

4 RFT (14 min cap)

20 Box Jumps 24/20

15 Push Press 50/35kg

15 T2B / Weighted Sit ups

Coaches Notes

Part A: The Push Jerk may be a new movement to some of you so today will be more focused on technique rather than weight. Focus on keeping your elbows up as you dip and move fast to get under the bar. With the wall climbs, its a great opportunity to get used to being upside down. If you are used to doing wall climbs, try shoulder taps!

Part B: Hold a good pace through out and hold on! This workout will get grippy pretty fast so break up the T2B early.

Monday Squats

Welcome to a new week folks and we can officially start talking about Christmas! Now that we are entering the silly season, training can sometimes take a back seat, with all the nights out, xmas parties etc. The temptation can be there to just ‘wait til January’. But remember, there are 30 days from today until January. There are a few days over xmas that are a given that you wont train – xmas eve, xmas day, xmas party, Stephens day, new years – that leaves 25 days from now until January that you can get some training done and you can still enjoy the festive season!

Part B: These are fast rounds folks so be prepared to breathe hard! Try and hit a consistent pace per round and be efficient with movement. Each movement should be unbroken!!

 Coaches Notes 

Part A: If you are good at T2B, use this as a opportunity to practice unbroken reps whilst not under fatigue. If you have 1 or 2 T2B, try and practice linking T2Ib and getting as close to the bar as possible. No swinging reps! If this is new to you, your coach will show you how to hang from the bar correctly, to engage your shoulders and initiate the movement, you will need to practice scap pull ups then.

 

Part B: These are sprint rounds guys, don’t let up in those latter rounds! Complete all 8 rounds on each movement before moving on.
