Monday February 3

Back squat 3×10 70%or more than last time
“Field of Dreams”
20/15 row/Bike
15 KBS 70/53
20/15 Row/Bike
10 Strict pullups
We are at end of our 2nd wave of front squats.  Today we mix in some high rep back squats to keep the momentum going.  We have 1 more 3 week stint then max, woot, woot!  On today’s wod, get it on the Row/bike.  You need to come out at 85% and try and hold on.  Don’t over pace it!  Its ok if you break up the pullups.  They are supposed to slow you down.
Tuesday February 4

15 min AMRAP
“Prince of Thieves”
8 Push Press 115/75
8 Dball clean
15/10 Pushups
50m Dball carry
Today we mix upper body pushing with lower body odd objects.  Set a pace you can maintain today.  Usually, starting a little slower and then speeding up at about min, if you feel good, 5 is the way to go.  Break up the pushups with short sets/rests from the beginning if they are gonna be an issue.  Steady pace wins the race.
Wednesday February 5
Power clean
3 EMOTMx3 rest 1 min
2 EMOTMx3 rest 1 min
10 min to find heavy single
7 min AMRAP
7 power cleans 135/95
25 DBl unders
We are gonna find our 1rm power clean today.  The EMOTM is merely a warmup.  Then we go heavy, but we want good movement.  The wod is 21.1 becuase it should feel like an open wod.  Very high HR.  You’ll have to come out hot and try and hang on!
Thursday February 6

“The Untouchables”

Wall ball
Muscle ups
We will spend the first part of class dialing in MU.  We will scale them as needed.  You just gotta grind through the rest of this.  Set a pace you can maintain and then try and speed up when you get to the round of 30.
Friday February 7
“The Postman”
800m run
8 Deadlifts 335/215
This is a mix of aerobic work with heavy lifting.  Use a weight that you can do with good form.  Doesn’t need to be unbroken, but you should be consistent.  We’ll spend a few min finding out what weigth to use.

WODS 1/27/20 to 1/31/20

Monday January 27

Power clean+FS+PJ every 90 sec x 7

“Rack City”
For Time:
10 Power Cleans (155/105)
50 Air Squats
10 Front Squats (155/105)
50 Air Squats
10 Push Jerks (155/105)
50 Air Squats

The complex is meant to dial in the 3 lifts of the day. For more experience athletes, get heavy but move well. For newer people, simply use this to practice the movements. I want you guys to use a weight you can do in 2-3 short sets quick rest. Single on the PC are ok as long as they are fast.


Tuesday January 28

“Speed Limit”

AMRAP 6 min
Buy-In: 50/35 Cal row/bike
Max Rounds in Time Remaining:
8 Burpee Box Jumps (24/20)
8 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
Rest 3 min
Buy in 50/35 Cal /row/Bike
Max rds
8 Pullups
rest 3 min
50/35 Cal row/Bike
max rds
8 BBJ0
8 Toes to bar

We take a break from the weights today and focus on cardio and upper body. Get the row/bike done so you have time on the clock for the other movements. Send it on the burpees!


Wednesday January 29

Front squat wave 3-1-3-1-3-1
or 5×3 32X1

12 DB lunges 50/35
12 Ball slams 40/30
20 Abmat situps

Our wave is later in the week this week and will be a little harder. Don’t be afraid to dial it back to move well. I want it challenging, but doable. Tempo are a good option if you aren’t ready to lift heavy yet. Set a pace you can maintain on the wod and hang on!


Thursday January 30

Bar MU skills

Nate runs to the Bar

10 min ARMAP
2 Bar MU
8 KBS 70/53
100m run
Rest 5 minx2

This is a slight adaptation to a wod we’ve done before. The run allows the arms to rest. The key to this wod is to move well, and be in good position. Small sets so make everything count!


Friday January 31

Hang power snatch+OHS+hang squat snatch E90 sec x 7

“Paw Patrol”
40 Double Unders
12 Knees to elbows
6 Hang Squat Snatches (115/75)

We haven’t done squat snatch in a wod in a long time. Keep the weight light enough to where you can get at least 2 sets of 6 in a row. I want you to move well! We can find your weight in the beginning. This is all about skill refinement.

WODS 1/20/20 to 1/24/20

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Monday January 20

FS wave
Front squats 80-85-83-88-85-90
or 5×3 32X1

“Pins and Needles”
12 min AMRAP
10 Goblet lunges 53/35
100 m run
10 Knees to elbows
100m run

Back on the wave today folks! For new peeps, we’ll go with tempo to allow focus on technique. The wod is meant for a sustained effort for 12 min. Pick weights that allow you to run at a medium pace and transition right into the movement.


Tuesday January 21

“Deja Vu”
8 Rds(4each)
Teams of 2
30/20 Cal Row
10 Ring pushups
50m Sand bag carry
1 does full round then other does full round

Every now and then we need a partner wod during the week. Ring pushups are a great way to strengthen the chest and triceps, as well as help us get ring dips, HSPU and MU. I want you to bring it on the row each round. I expect it will be around 2-3 min work/rest each round.


Wednesday January 22

“Opening Day”
Wallballs (20/14)
C2B Pull-Ups
Thrusters (95/65)
Box Jumps over (24/20)
Kettle Bell Swings (53/35)-American

Don’t be fooled by todays wod. This is a very high heart rate wod. Pace if from the beginning. There is a lot of grip involved. The pull ups will dictate the pace for most of us. Small sets short rests on the pull ups and thrusters. Consider breaking up the KBS to save your grip.


Thursday January 23

10 strict pullups
10 seated DB Press
25 Abmat situps

“Red Lobster”
400m run
12 ball slams 40/30
2 Wall walks

Today is all about upper body and work capacity. The rep scheme on the wod is the way it is because I want you to run hard!!! The strength piece should be done for quality, not time. Boring stuff like this is what keeps our joints strong and healthy for a long time.


Friday January 24

“Crash Test”
For Time:
1,500 Meter Row
30 Deadlifts (245/165)
45 Bar Facing Burpees

Don’t get too crazy on the row. You should go at 80% effort. Don’t go for a big set of deads unless you can get 22+, otherwise your breaks will be too long. I’d suggest breaking it up in even chunks with short rests. For the burpees, you just gotta get’em done.

3 power cleans+1 Jerk

“Air Fryer”
3 Rounds:
50 Air Squats
10 Power Clean & Jerks (135/95)

200m run

7 Front Squats 225/155 or 70-75% Should get 1 min rest rd 1…

Ya buddy! I want you to bring it on the run! Scale the distance if you need need to. The weight should be heavy but you shouldn’t fail. You should get 7 in a row every round. Racks are ok but some people will need to go from the floor.


Thursday January 16


EMOTMx24 min
1: 6 close grip Bench press
2: 12 DB step ups 1×50/35 24/20
3:18/12 Cal row
4: 15/15 Russian twists

Today we add in bench press with a little bit of heart rate. Focus on your breathing, and pick a weight you can hit 6 in a row. I didn’t add a % because we don’t do this that often. I want the elbows in and shoulder blades pinched together. Send it on the row. This is where you improve your work capacity!


Friday January 17

“Blue Steel”
400m run
20 Pushups

WODS 1/6/20 to 1/10/20

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Monday January 6
Front squat
3 70%
1 80%
3 75%
1 85%
3 80%
1 90 % OR
6×3  Tempo 32X1
“Airplane Mode”
8 min AMRAP
2/2, 4/4, 6/6, 8/8…
DB thrusters 50/35

Those of you that are more advanced, go for the wave.  It will help activate more motor fibers which will help you lift more.  Newer people, I want you to work on the tempo so that you can own the movement.  Slow and steady wins the race on the wod.  Try and maintain a constant speed throughout.  Break up the pullups sooner rather than later.

Tuesday January 7

Power clean 2 EMOTMx6 min
3 Rounds:
100 Double Unders
4 Wall walks
10 Power Cleans
135/95, 165/110, 195/125
During the warmup, I want you to get up to the heaviest weight you will hit in the wod.  This way, you can move the weight faster when you back down.  The power cleans in the wod will most likely be quick singles.  This should get heavy, but not above 85% on the last round.
Wednesday January 9
“Fight or Flight”
20 Wallballs (20/14)
20 Hang Power Snatches (95/65)
20 Box Jumps (24/20)
20 Goblet squat 70/53
20/15 Calorie Row/bike
The key here is pacing.  Don’t bite off more than you can chew.  The snatches should be done in 2-3 quick sets at most!!! Same goes for the goblet squats.  Try and hold 80% on the rower.
Thursday January 10
Strict pullups 3×10
200m run
10/7 Strict HSPU
200 run
10 Ball slams 40/30
200m run
Time to get swole!!!  HSPU are equal parts strength and mobility.  The pullups will help set your shoulders back and improve overhead rom for the HSPU.  If you don’t have them, we’ll scale with seated DB press.  Look forward to more upper body stuff as the weeks progress.
Friday January 11
20min AMRAP
1 Deadlift 405/285
10 Toes to bar
15 Bar Facing burpees
This wod is named after a SEAL that was killed in 2015.  The deadlift is ridiculously heavy.  The goal is not for everyone to go RX.  I want you to pick a weight you can move slowly for 20 min.  Don’t go above 85% 1rm!!!!  Don’t underestimate how hard the TTB burpee combo is.  Time to earn the weekend CFC!

WODS 12-16-19 to 12-20-19

Monday December 16

2 hang power snatch+1 OHS+1 hang snatch 1rd every 1:30×6

“Power Move”
10 min
6 Hang Power snatch 95/65
9 OHS 95/65
12 Box Jump overs 24/20

A lot of us struggle with overhead position. Simply spending time in these positions will help improve it. I want you to be able to do the reps of the wod all in a row. Light weights fast today!


Tuesday December 17

“Lead Foot”
5 min AMRAP
12 Deadlifts 225/155
12 Toes to bar
Max cal bike/row
rest 3 min
5 min AMRAP
9 Deadlift 275/185
9 C2B pullups
Max cal bike/row
rest 3 min
6 Deadlifts 315/205
6 Bar MU
max cal bike/row

You should go through the deadlifts/gymnastics for rd 1 and 2 at 85% so you can send it on the row. The quicker you get to the machine the more calories you’ll get. Round 1 should be unbroken, or close to it, on the deads. R2, 2 sets max, rd 3 heavy. Don’t go to failure on the gymnastics. Your upper body takes longer to recover. Be smart.


Wednesday December 18

Front squats
3,2×1 pause in hole 5×2 75% and up
3-1-3-1-3-1. 70-80-75-85-80-90%

3 Rounds:
400m run
60 Double Unders
10 Thrusters (115/75)

Playing around with some new ideas on the strength today. If your newer, pick option 1, if more experienced option 2. today is all about work capacity. The thrusters should be heavy but you should be able to do 1 set of 10 in a row. I want you to scale this so you can still run hard!!!


Thursday December 19

25 Pushups
15/15 Russian Twists

Rope climb skills

DB step ups 24/20 1×50/35
KBS 70/53
1 Rope climb/Rd

Today is all odd object/movements that we don’t see that often. Pushups are boring but will really help you get stronger. The key to this wod is the transitions. Try and set a steady pace.


Friday December 20

HSPU skills

“Yin and Yang”
Row 500m/Bike.6
5 Strict HSPU
50m DBall carry
Immediately into
Bike/Row(switch) 500m/.6
10 DB Push Press 50/35
50m SOL carry

Your goal should be to hold a steady pace on the row/bike. Thats where you make up time. The only thing you should break up are the HSPU. Everything else you be pretty consistent.

WODS 12/9/19 to 12/13/19

Monday December 9

Power snatch+snatch EMOTMx8 min

42 Wallballs 20/14
12/8 Strict pullups
6-4-2 snatch(115/75-135/95-155/105)

Today we focus on heavier snatches while fatigued. Break up the WB in even chunks throughout the wod. If the weights are too heavy, scale down, or stay the same. We want them to be quick singles.


Tuesday December 10

5 single arm DB press+15 V-ups x4

“Little DIpper”
DB push Press 50/35
Burpee Box Jumps 24/20

Single arm pressing will help activate the obliques and along with the V-ups will help keep our core strong. V-ups have great carryover to our gymnastics movements. Today’s wod is meant to be a high heart rate sprint. Go get it!


Wednesday December 11

Buy-In: 300 Meter Row/.3bike

Thursday December 12

“Christmas Cookies”
18 min AMRAP
16 Abmat situps
12 Ball slams 40/30
8 DB Front rack lunge 50/35

10 Deadlift 315/205

Something for everyone today. Running for cardio, bar muscle ups for skills, and heavy deads for the meatheads. I WANT YOU TO SCALE THIS SO YOU CAN RUN HARD:) First 3 rounds of deads should be unbroken. If not there yet on bar mu, we can scale the reps if needed.
