8/13/13 WOD


You’ll get to enjoy these movements today. I want everyone to keep these ideas in mind…

  • You will get ten times the workout with 20 perfect wall balls, than you would with 100 half squat / partial throw wall balls.
  • There is WAY more than 1″ of travel in a ring dip. All the way down, All the way up to lock out. That’s how it’s done!
  • You WILL clean more weight with proper technique and form. Don’t get sloppy! If you have questions, please ask a coach. They will break it down for you and you will improve.
  • If you’re holding a conversation while rowing… You’re not trying hard enough! Focus on speed, efficiency, and endurance. Not on discussing how awesome the last episode of Breaking Bad was. Although I must say, it was pretty good…

*notes- part A up until now has been a power cleans, weight by now should be getting very heavy, be sure to work on changing the depth of the receiving position= weight gets heavier the lower you have to receive the bar!  Quick 3-5 min foam roll session.
