WODs April 4th-9th

April 9, 2016

Monday 4th



Every 2 mins, for 5 sets 
1 Hang Snatch + 3 Overhead Squats

**Build over the course of the five sets to today’s heaviest.


9 min AMRAP
3 Hang Snatches 
6 Overhead Squats 

9 Burpees Over the Barbell

This is intended to train your precision and stability under stress. The Hang Snatch and OHS wouuld be pretty easy by itself, but once those 9 Burpees get your HR up it becomes a lot tougher to control such a technical movement. Push this as hard as you can without getting yourself in a bad position.



Tuesday 5th



Five sets for max reps of:
30 Seconds of Muscle-Ups
**Rest 30 seconds
30 Seconds of Push-Ups
(if this is a strong movement for you, loop a band around your back and pin it down with your hands to create a band-resisted push-up)
**Rest 30 seconds
30 Seconds of Toes to Bar
**Rest 30 seconds



For time:
Row 50 Calories
50 Russian Kettlebell Swings 

Run 800 Meters

The goal today is simple: just complete the work as quickly as possible. Of course, be deliberate with the Kettlebell, don't get sloppy. And utilize those rowing techniques we learned last week to maximize your time spent on the Rower.



Wednesday 6th



Every 2 minutes, for 10 minutes (5 sets):
Back Squat
*Set 1 – 6 reps @ 65%
*Set 2 – 4 reps @ 75%
*Set 3 – 2 reps @ 85%
*Set 4 – 2 reps @ 90%
*Set 5 – 1 rep @ 95%


followed by…


Every 3 minutes, for 6 minutes (2 sets):
Back Squat x 1 rep @ 101+%

(If you consider yourself an "advanced lifter" then just take the 16 minutes with whatever rep-scheme that you find optimal to build to 101+%.  


Every 4 minutes, for 20 minutes (5 sets):
25 Wall Ball Shots

25 Double-Unders --50 Doubles if you're Advanced 


This one is intended to be "interval style." Hard and fast bursts to complete the work as quickly as possible, then the remainder of the 4 min window is your rest period.


Scale the work appropriately!! (You should have approximately 2 mins to rest each time)



Thursday 7th



Overhead HOLD




30 min AMRAP

Run 1 Lap

12 C2B Pull-Ups

6 Handstand Push-Ups or 12 Seated Shoulder Press

The goal today is "PACING." You should aim to find a pace from the very beginning that you can pretty much maintain for the entire AMRAP. (If the 1st round takes you 4 mins to complete, but the 3rd round takes 8 mins to complete, then something went terribly wrong. If anything, your LAST round should be the fastest.)



Friday 8th



Twenty mins to find Deadlift 5 RM (This IS intended to be "Touch and Go")




Complete one round every 2 minutes:

3 Power Cleans (As heavy as possible)
10 Ring Rows

*Complete both movements within 2 minutes resting the remainder of the time. Complete 6 Rounds or 12 minutes of work.

This is the heavy day! Try to push the strength side of this one.
