Competition (05/13/16)

 In Competition


*Just an advanced notice. We’ll be tackling some of the Regional WODs not this weekend, but the following weekend (5/20-5/21) in our programming. If you’ve been thinking about trying some of them, hold off until then.

A. Gymnastics Warmup
*We’re taking some of our gymnastics training back to square one and building from the ground up, so be ready for some new baseline progressions like today. These are not meant to destroy you but to build some baseline stability and mobility that many of us are missing. Resist the urge to try something harder/sexier.
5 Rounds of:
12 Bent Hollow Rocks
12 Table Stretches 

B. Strength
*Build to a moderately heavy load, and then make 10-20lbs jumps across each set. Goal is to get in 5 heavy singles today with a gradual increase. Not to set a 1RM. If a 1RM happens then great, but don’t push for it. If the lift feels good, go up. If it doesn’t, stay at the weight and repeat. This is our primary focus for today. Take plenty of warmup sets and plenty of rest between heavy sets.   

C. Conditioning
Every 4min for 5 Rounds:
400m Run
*Score is slowest run. Focus on quality efforts for each run. 

*That’s it for today. Today is intentionally a lower volume day because we have a tough benchmark WOD coming up tomorrow and it’s been a taxing week already.
