Workout of the Day

Sunday-Tuesday 170219-21 - Beginner

Sunday 2/19 and Monday 2/20
Back Squat 3×5, increasing
Overhead Squats 3×5, increasing

Note: For Sunday and Monday workouts we will be working on Back Squats and Overhead Squats leading up to the CrossFit Open (last week.) Focus on going heavy for your back squats and as heavy as your mobility allows for your overhead squats. Track your weights used each week, and try to increase the weights slightly from week to week.

15-12-9 reps for time of:
Overhead Squats (95/65)
Over the Bar Burpees

Time cap: 8 minutes

Tuesday 2/21
Power Clean 6×1, increasing

Compare to 2/14/17. This is last week of power cleans, so you’ll use the first part of class to find your new 1 RM Power Clean.

15 Minute alternating EMOM:
Minute 1 – 3-5 TNG Power Cleans (135/95)
Minute 2 – 30-50 Double Unders
Minute 3 – 3-5 Chest to Bar Pull ups

The range of motion required for chest to bar pull ups are very tough for newer CrossFitters or those working towards an unassisted pull up. Your scaling should reflect a “tough” pull up. If you start your pull ups without bands today, (try to) stay out of the bands for the whole EMOM!

Sunday 2/26
Mock Meet

If you have not attended OlyWOD or Black Box Barbell classes regularly for the past several weeks, it is recommended that you do not attend this session. This will be a longer event (2 hours+) dedicated to establishing a Total (sum of best Snatch and best Clean + Jerk in 3 attempts) and treated as if it were a weightlifting competition. The Monthly Mock meets are designed to replicate the pacing and variables of an actual weightlifting competition so that members are prepared to compete in outside events. This is not an Open Gym session nor is it for the occasional attendee/drop in. All members are welcome to spectate.

If you have questions about the Mock Meet, please contact Coach Brian.
