Monday, November 13th

Workout: For Time – With a Partner – 24 Minute Cap

Buy In: 1000/900m Row


10 Rounds – Relay Style
10 Hang Snatch (75/55)
10 Wall Ball


Buy Out: 1000/900m Row

Workout Brief

Feel: Muscle/Reach / Pace: Gas

This partner workout is intended to be executed at a faster tempo. Once you finish the first Row, the relay style rounds are on the longer side and should take about :45 to 1:00 to complete. The longer rest it gives each partner should allow you to sprint when it’s your turn to work. Make sure you can complete your Snatches and Wall Balls unbroken – reduce the weight or reps on each to achieve that stimulus.

Tuesday, November 14th

800m Run
40 Toes to Bar
20 Box Jump (30/24)
40 Target Burpee
800m Run

Workout Brief

Feel: Reach / Pace: Grind

The highest skill movement in this workout is the Toes to Bar. Pick an option that you can stick to sets of five with for the entire forty reps. Once you get through the Box Jumps, the Burpees and Run should be completed at a steady but faster tempo.

Wednesday, November 15th

Strength: Find a Heavy – 8 Minutes

Every 2 Minutes: 1 Squat Clean + 3 Front Squat

Workout: For Time and Total Load – 17 Minutes

5 Rounds
4 Front Squat (205/155)
12 Handstand Push Up

Find a Heavy Squat Clean – 3 attempts

Workout Brief

Feel: Muscle / Pace: Full Send!

This workout is meant to be fast. The Front Squat weight should be close to as heavy as you can clean and hit your Front Squats from the floor with little rest on the transitions. In order to hit the stimulus of this workout, your Handstand Push Ups should start unbroken. It is okay to reduce the volume or scale to a Dumbbell Push Press in order to get the faster feel.

Push hard from the beginning of this workout. Nine minutes is a long time to sprint, but use this to see where the line is. The Dumbbell Push Press should be unbroken and keep a low stroke rate but powerful pulls on the Rower.
