Monday, October 23rd

Strength: 12 Minutes

6-6-3-3: Touch and Go Power Snatch

Workout: For Time – 8 Minute Cap

Overhead Squat (155/105)
Strict Handstand Push Up

Workout Brief

Feel: Muscle / Pace: Full Send!

The strength today should be done for quality, but push yourself in your weight choice. Think of the first set of each rep scheme as a practice set. The weight should feel about 90% intensity and be completed with near perfect technique. The second set of each number should be pushed hard and challenging. It’s better to go for six or three and come up a rep short than to leave some in the tank. The goal of the workout is to move fast, but the overhead squat is going to challenge your stability. The squats should be unbroken and the handstand push ups should be two to three sets maximum each round.

Workout Brief

Feel: Triple Threat / Pace: Gas

This workout allows you to split up the work anyway you’d like. Depending on how you feel, it might be better to split it up in a way that is advantageous to your skillset. If you feel great and want to challenge yourself, split it up in a way that doesn’t suit your skillset. Make sure you are achieving full depth on the squats and a rowing at an efficient rate.

Workout Brief

Feel: Reach/Muscle / Pace: Grind

Give yourself at least three minutes between Strict Press sets to use up the entire clock and make the most of the session. In the workout, complete the Burpees at a slower tempo so you can maintain consistent movement on the Barbell and Rig. The Shoulder to Overhead should be one to two sets every round. Substitute Burpee Pull Ups or Strict Pull Ups for Bar Muscle Ups.
