This week, we begin a new Strength Cycle. I know there are still some folks at home. Do your best with what equipment you have. If you need suggestion on alternatives, please reply on our Facebook Posts!
50 Single Unders
25 L-Leg SUs
25 R-Leg SUs
25 Double Unders or 5 attempts
Grab light DB
10 Single arm DLs per side
5 DB high pulls per side
6 alt DB snatch
Prior to WOD, 2X10 empty bar RDLs
EMOM for 14 Min:
Odd – 10 Alt DB Snatch (35/25)
Even – 100M Sprint
This first piece is more to wake up that posterior chain and your explosive hip extension as well as be a bit of active recover for the overhead work from yesterday.
7 Deadlifts (225/155)
30 Double Unders
Keep your core engaged on both movements. Doing so in the deadlifts will help to posterior chain stay engaged and keep you safe. Doing so in the double unders keeps your torso in the best upright position. A bent torso in DUs leads to you looking at the ground, which leads to you hopping forward, which leads to missed DUs.
Bar weight -> 185/130 -> 155/110 -> 135/95 -> as needed
DUs –> 30 Penguin Hops* -> 60 Single Unders
