“21’s”

3 Rounds

Barbell Biceps Curls

Barbell Strict Presses

Banded Triceps Push Downs

*For week 10 of Arms by Arlan, we will have a classic bodybuilding rep scheme. The format for 21’s will be done in the following: 7 half way up reps, 7 half way down reps, and 7 full reps. For example: 7 half way up curls (bottom of rep to half way), 7 half way down curls (top of rep to half way), and 7 full curls. You will do this for all 3 movements for 3 full rounds. The weights / resistance should be something that you can do 10-12 reps unbroken when fresh (it doesn’t have to be just a barbell, add some weight to it). Record weights used and any pertinent notes.

Thursday 3.12.20 

WOD: “Box of Chocolates”
Rest Day / Active Recovery 

 

Friday 3.13.20 

WOD: “Swing State”

Extra Credit: 

12 Min EMOM (:45 on / :15 off)

Min 1) 5 Strict T2B + L-Hold (In Remaining Time)

Min 2) 5 Heavy SA KB Side Crunches + SA KB Farmer Hold (In Remaining Time) Right

Min 3) 5 Heavy SA KB Side Crunches + SA KB Farmer Hold (In Remaining Time) Left

Min 4) Rest

*The main focus for today will the the strict toes to bar and L-Hold. The strict toes to bar are very challenging and if we are unable to perform them, find something that is challenging and stick with that (strict knees to chest, strict knees to elbows, straight leg raises, etc.). Since the side crunches have a low rep scheme to them, we want to challenge ourselves on the weight (try to go as heavy as possible). Minute 2 will be one one side and minute 3 will be in the other for our side crunches and holds.

Saturday 3.14.20
WOD: “Sriracha”


Extra Credit:
20.1 & 1/2 Repeat

5 Rounds For Time:

8 Ground To Overhead (95/65)

10 Burpees Over The Bar

*The goal of this WOD is to push yourself a little harder than the last time we did this. Since it’s only 5 rounds, bring the intensity up a little than the original (10 round) version. Keep good form for the ground to overhead (snatches or clean and jerks). Record weight used and time to complete 5 rounds.
