Competition (06/06/16)

 In Competition


A. Gymnastics Skill
4 Rounds of:
10 Straddle Ups
10 Jefferson Curls
*Stay light on Jefferson Curls (15-35# bar at the most).

B. Weightlifting
10min EMOM
1 Snatch, Above Knee
*Pause with bar above knee for 2 sec. Build to a moderate/heavy weight before starting EMOM. Use for as your limiter. If lifts are feeling good, feel free to build.

C. Strength
Tempo Back Squats
*3 sec negative, no pause in bottom, 1 sec ascent, 1 sec at top. Let tempo decide load. Building. Make 5-10lb jumps each working set.

**Make this a legitimate squat session today. Plenty of warmup sets. Full 2min rest between working sets, push hard but keep tempo. Whenever someone tells me we didn’t do enough volume on a 5×5 squat day, I know they didn’t go heavy enough and/or dedicate enough time to their squats. A true 5×5 should be taxing! 

D. Metcon
4 Rounds:
2min to complete:
200m Run
Then AMRAP of Burpee Pull-ups in remaining time.
Rest 1min after each round.
*Rx – Pull-up bar must be at least 6″ above reach. Score is total burpee pull-ups

*That’s it for today. Resist the urge to do more. Metcon volume will go up as the week goes on.
