Welcome to the ladder

Posted: February 28, 2013 in WODs

Strength
Power clean power jerk ladder
Women start at 63lb
Men start at 125lb
1 minute to complete 20 du then complete lift

Wod
Death by hspu

Fuck ya! Sorry still had to get that out. Can’t even explain with worlds how excited I have been all day! This was super competitive and a super supportive environment and I couldn’t even keep up with the people that were coming out yelling PR! At me, love it.

So the way the ladder works s we all start in one line, ladies first, and the sound of rotate the first athlete enters the floor and performs 20 du or 40 seconds of attempts. If 30 sec comes first I will yell lift. At this time you now have 30 sec to make the lift. At 1 minute I will yell rotate and the next athlete will enter the floor and if the first athlete maked the lift they get to go to the next bar.

The ladies today made me a little scared I didn’t out enough bars out for them and a couple made it far into the men’s bars with 20 jumps in it! Nice job melody Fryberg with a pr 165! And we only had one dude flirt with clearing the ladder, Patrick reeves

With a 225 power clean freakin push press!

Then as if we weren’t having enough fun how about a death by hspu to finish ;). Again more prs made as I challenged everyone to try a harder way and almost everyone were able to. But awards go to Donnella for pr’ing 4 times in this one wod. Pr for her first RX’d hspu then for a double then for a triple then 4 unbroken! Bam!

How heavy can you go fast?

Posted: February 27, 2013 in WODs

Strength
Clean complex
1 clean high pull + 1 low hang squat clean (below the knees)

Wod
3 rounds
10 Push press 155/105
10 Box jumps 30/24
20 push ups

Main key points for the strength today are to STAY BACK! Bar complexes are tough because we don’t place the bar back so do not let the bar control you, you control it. Stay back, keep a tight lumbar curve and tight lays to keep the bar close.

Alright we ran into a lot of interference with with this one today, all sets and reps look very doable until you moved from the first set of push ups back to the push press made that sucker heavy! The fittest will be able to move that heavy load and their body weight the fastest!

Balls to the wall

Posted: February 26, 2013 in WODs

Strength
5 rounds
3 heavy front squats
Rest 30
15 wb sit ups
Rest 1 min
Build to a heavy 3

Wod
KAREN!
150 wallballs

Stay close to that wallball and do work. This is nothing different than a typical squat identical to a thruster so that means we can just throw squat mechanics out the window an start going crazy with knees in and chests down! Drive those knees out and maintain an upright torso this will make the wallball much easier! Then from there it’s just a mental game, keep pushing

You’ve been peppered with short ones and I don’t know if you felt it but I was setting you up with the jab to hit ya with the looping right! Haha and it got all of ya! Was awesome to watch you guys grind through this one. Burpees are burpees we all know they suck and you got through where it got yucky was going from pull ups back to that heavy kettle bell. Ya, gotta love it….
