Friday 2.9.18 Workout of the Day

By: 0

CrossFit WOD:

Strength/Skill Work:

8 Min EMOM:

Min 1) 1.1.1 Power Cleans (Start at 50-60% and Build)

Min 2) 1 Set Strict Ring Dips (about 50% of a Max Set)  S(1 Ring Dip Negative + 10-20 Sec Bottom Hold or 1 Negative Push Up + 10-20 Sec Bottom Hold)

 “CrossFit Games Open 14.4”

14 Min AMRAP:

60 Calorie Row S(45 Cals)

50 Toes to Bar S(Knees to Chest)

40 Wall Balls S(14/10) RX(20/14)

30 Power Cleans S(95/65) RX(135/95)

20 Ring Muscle Ups S(Burpees Pull Ups)

 WOD Tips:

-Today’s focus is retesting one of the CrossFit Games Open workouts from 2014, “14.4”.   This is a fan-favorite from the past because of the nice mix of movements and the chipper style, where the reps decrease as you get further into this workout.   While many of the top athletes worldwide finished this workout and made it back to the row, a great goal for most of our athletes is to finish the power cleans or get close to it.  Be smart on the row and toes to bar today.  You can easily come out too hot and fall apart for the rest of this workout.  Conserve your energy on the first 30 cals of the row so you can settle into a sustainable pace.  For the toes to bar, aim for small and consistent sets from the beginning, and stick with this as long as you can.  3-5 reps at a time is a great approach for most athletes.  If you have to resort to singles or lose your rhythm early, consider scaling the number of toes to bar reps or switching to knees to chest.

-To help prep for this workout, and also get some strength work in, we will be starting the day with some power clean singles and strict ring dips. You will most likely be performing the power cleans as singles in the WOD, so this is a chance to practice them at a heavier weight, and get the nervous system geared up for the workout.  For the dips, we’re looking to accumulate some good volume today, but not fatigue you to the point where it would noticeably affect the workout.  Keep your sets manageable and aim for quality over quantity on these.

CrossFit WOD:

“Lung Butter”
20 Min AMRAP: (In teams of 3)
5 X 25’ Shuttle Sprints
15 Russian KB Swings S(53/44) RX(70/53)
5 X 25’ Shuttle Sprints
7/5 Cal Bike
*Alternating full rounds. Next teammate will start once teammate 1 BEGINS their bike.

Core WOD:
2 Rounds (Not For Time)
60 Sec Sorenson Hold Adv(Weighted)
10 SL Glute Bridges on Wall (Per Side)
30 Hollow Rocks S(Hollow/Tuck Hold)
10 Side Plank Rotations (Per Side, SLOW)


WOD Tips:
-Today is a fun team workout where one person will be completing a full round on their own each time. Each round of this workout should be a hard effort, since you will have rest built in when your teammates go. Go hard on the shuttle sprints and aim to do the Russian KB Swings unbroken every round. Once you finish the 2nd
set of shuttle sprints, you will be tagging your teammate to start the next round. While they start their round, you will finish your bike cals. The bike can be a slower pace compared to the rest of the workout, but make sure you finish your calories before your next teammate gets to the bike. Each round should take about 90 seconds to complete, and you will have about 45-60 seconds to rest before your next set. Keep this work to rest ratio in mind, when deciding how hard to attack this
workout.

BeachFit WOD:

“The Exterminator”
AMRAP 22
10 meter Sled push 
10 Cockroach crunches (Sc: 30 Bicycle crunches; Adv: add weight)

Wednesday 2.7.18 Workout of the Day

CrossFit WOD:

“Slap Happy”
5 Min AMRAP:
12 Front Squats S(75/55) RX(95/65) RTG(115/80)
4 Burpee Box Jump Overs S(20/16) RX/RTG(24/20)
rest 5 Minutes

5 Min AMRAP:
8 Front Squats S(95/65) RX(115/80) RTG(135/95)
4 Burpee Box Jump Overs
rest 5 Minutes

5 Min AMRAP:
4 Front Squats S(115/75) RX(135/95) RTG(155/110)
4 Burpee Box Jump Overs

*Every round will start with a 100 double under buy-in S(50 Dubs/100 Double Taps)


WOD Tips:
-Today is a challenging interval workout performed in 5 minutes of work and 5 minutes of rest. Each interval will start with a 100 double under buy-in. The buy-in should take less than 90 seconds to complete, and cap yourself at 2 minutes if you’re struggling with double unders today. In the remaining time, you will be working on the front squats and burpee box jumps to get as many rounds as possible. The front squat weight will increase every AMRAP as the reps decrease. This should be a weight that you can keep unbroken for all sets of all 3 AMRAPs. If you’re on the fence between weights, you will likely get a better workout today by going with a lighter weight, staying unbroken, and minimizing the rest between sets.

12 Hanging Knee raises

Tuesday 2.6.18 Workout of the Day

By: 0

CrossFit WOD:

Strength/Skill Work:

3 Rounds of: (12 Min Cap)
6-8 DB Bent Over Rows
3-4 Dragon Flags (SLOW)


“Turkey Jerky”
4 Rounds For Time: (18 Min Cap)
400m Run S(250m)
15 Chest to Bar S(9 C2B/15 PU)
7 DB Clean and Jerks S(35/25) RX(45/30) RTG(50/35)


WOD Tips:
-Today’s focus is on building upper body pulling strength with the db bent over rows and the pull ups in the WOD. For the strength work, spend the first 3-4 minutes
warming up and then go into your working sets. All 3 working sets on the rows should be pretty heavy. Start with a heavy set for 8 reps and increase the weight each
set as long as you can still get 6 reps. Make sure to keep this movement strict while maintaining a flat back.
-“Turkey Jerky” is a 4 round triplet that we would like to see done in around 15 minutes or less. For the runs, we want each 400 to take around 2 minutes or less to
complete today. That gives you about a minute each on the pull ups and the clean and jerks, which should be plenty of time. If you start to take more than a minute
each time on the pull ups, scale to less chest to bar reps or to pull ups/ring rows. For the clean and jerks, choose a weight that you believe you can do unbroken for
the entire workout. Pace the first couple rounds, hold strong through that 3 rd round, and then see if you can speed up on that 4th and final round.

BeachFit WOD:

“Neature Walk”
4 Rounds 
1:20 on / :20 off
  1. Run 300 meters (Adv: 400 m)

CrossFit Week of WODs are HERE

BeachFit Week of WODs are HERE

————————————————–

CrossFit WOD:

Strength/Skill Work:

Back Squats – 18 Minute Cap
Sets 1, 3, and 5: 5 Back Squats @ 75%
Sets 2, 4, and 6: 2 Back Squats @ 80-90%


“Medicine Man”
12 Min AMRAP:
20 Push ups
60’ D-Ball Walking Lunges S(30/20) RX(50/40)
15/12 Cal Row


WOD Tips:
-Today is continuing to build off the back squat work from January. After several weeks of pause squats, we are removing the pause today. Move at a normal tempo
with these, but still work on hitting full depth at the bottom. Spend the first 5 minutes warming up to 75% and then you will spend the remaining 12+ minutes on
your working sets. For the working sets, you will be alternating between a set of 5 and a set of 2. The sets of 5 will serve as your baseline sets, and will always be
performed at the same weight. The sets of 2 will serve as your building sets, and will be a little heavier each time. Aim to end at 90% for the final set of 2.
-“Medicine Man” is a shorter workout to start off the week. We are looking for each movement to take about a minute to complete, so take that into consideration
when scaling this workout. The push ups can be a sticking point for many athletes, so consider decreasing the reps, or scaling down to a band when necessary. In
order to stick with the full 20 push ups each round, you should be able to hit consistent sets of 3-5 push ups with no more than 10 seconds rest between sets. For the
d-ball lunges, choose a weight that you think you can do the whole workout unbroken with. We will let you hold the d-ball any way today, so feel free to throw it on
either shoulder to save your arms and core for the other movements.

Saturday 2.10.18
“Thor’s Hammer”
For Time: (In teams of 2, 26 Min Cap)
90 DB Alternating Snatch S(35/25) RX(45/30) RTG(50/35)
800m Run Together
70 DB Deadlifts
600m Run Together
50 DB Thrusters
400m Run Together
30 DB Renegade Rows (Push Up, Row, Row = 1 Rep)
200m Run Together
S(Subtract 200m from each run, 100m on the last run)


WOD Tips:
-Today is a fun partner workout to finish up the week. This workout will incorporate some of our favorite dumbbell movements, where the movements should get
more challenging, as the reps decrease each time. Every dumbbell movement will be alternated with a run, and all the runs will be performed together. If running is
tougher for you, you can subtract 200m from each run, and 100m from the final run. Whoever is back first from the run, can start on the next dumbbell movement.
When choosing a weight for the dumbbells, we are roughly looking for you to be able to perform 20+ unbroken reps on the snatch, 15+ UB reps on the deadlift, 10+
UB reps on the thrusters, and 5+ UB reps on the renegade rows, when fresh. You will be sharing the reps as needed with your partner with one person resting. Stick
with small sets and quick transitions. As you get towards the end of this workout, pick up your pace on the runs and finish strong.

Bring-A- Friend Saturday!

CrossFit WOD:

“Peanut Butter and Jelly Legs”
18 Min AMRAP: (In teams of 3)
100 Pull ups [Wall Sit] S(Jumping Pull ups) RTG(Chest to Bar)
150/120 Cal Bike [High Plank Hold]
300 Double Unders S(300 Double Taps) [D Ball Hold] S(60/50) RX(80/60) RTG(100/80)
*1 person works, 1 person holds, 1 person rests


WOD Tips:
-Today is Bring-A- Friend Day to our 4 CrossFit classes at 7, 8, 9, and 10 AM. BeachFit is always Bring-A- Friend Day, as long as it is someone trying their first class.
-“Peanut Butter and Jelly Legs” is a fun team workout where you will be working together to complete each movement as a team. The catch is that one person must
be performing a hold in order for any reps to count. The goal today is to get through at least one full round. Keep your sets small so you can keep the intensity high
and rack up reps of each movement faster, especially on the bike.

CrossFit WOD:

“Holleyman”
30 Rounds For Time: (30 Min Cap)
5 Wall Balls S(14/10) RX/RTG(20/14)
3 Handstand Push Ups S(DB Push Press)
1 Power Clean S(135/95) RX(185/125) RTG(225/155)


WOD Tips:
-Today’s workout is a Hero WOD in honor of US Army Staff Sergeant Aaron N. Holleyman, who was killed in Iraq in 2004. These workouts always have a special
meaning because of the sacrifices those like Aaron have made. Remember that when your grinding through the later rounds of this workout, and use that as
motivation to continue to push through when the pain shows up.
-While this workout seems very daunting on paper, (30 rounds!!!), the rep scheme is low enough that you should be able to move through unbroken sets for the
entirety of this workout. Take your time on the transitions and use the transition time to recover. We are giving you 30 minutes to complete this workout, which is 1
minute per round. Most athletes will go out way too fast in the beginning and then hit a wall in the later rounds. Pace this one out early and then make any
necessary adjustments once you get into the meat of this workout (rounds 10-20). For the handstand push ups and wall balls, choose a weight/standard that you can
stay unbroken the whole workout. If you can’t do handstand push ups to 1 mat or less, lets scale to db push press today to keep things moving. The power cleans
should be very heavy today, since it is only 1 rep per round.

For Time:
800m Run S(600m)
30 Butterfly Sit ups
30 Slams S(30/20) RX(40/30)

400m Ski S(300m)
30 Butterfly Sit ups
30 Russian KB Swings S(53/44) RX(70/53)
30 Sec Ring FLR


WOD Tips:
-As we typically like to do on Thursdays, today is very core and aerobic focused. Today’s workout is essentially 3 rounds for time, where each round consists of a
cardio movement, butterfly sit ups, a ring FLR hold, and then one other movement that will switch each round. The combo of the butterfly sit ups with the ring FLR,
should get progressively tougher with each round. On the slams and swings, choose a weight that you can do in about 2 sets. Go a little harder on the run, row, and
ski knowing that you only have to hit each one once, and can recover your heart rate some on the sit ups.
