Last time with Back Rack Reverse Lunge before we re-test our 5X5. By now, you have the balance down on these, so should be good to go.  Set-up: From a rack, position bar on traps and shoulders. Keep weight in front heel. Maintain a neutral spine (careful of over-extension). Start with feet together.

Execution: Step one foot back far enough that front knee is over foot. Touch back knee to ground under control. Drive through front heel and back toes to bring feet together. Repeat with opposite leg for 1 rep.   Today, the reps are higher, so settle in for a longer strain per set.  Focus on good form on each rep and you’ll make it through.  Get in a little of the “pain cave”!

Video and description courtesy of WODWell. Background: The “Christine” workout, while not technically one of CrossFit’s classic “Girls” WODs, has been posted (unnamed) on the CrossFit Main Site as the workout of the day (first as 130902) – but with a different box height (20” instead of 24”).  In the CrossFit forum, user Mark Brinton attributed the workout to “CrossFit North” (CrossFit’s very first affiliate – near Bellevue, WA USA). Brinton first cited it in the CrossFit Forum on June 7, 2006 as one of the workouts that gym used to “evaluate new members.”

31 Heroes 2021

Pic courtesy of AllEvents.in  A quick heads up, Aug 6th, we will be doing a special version of “31 Heroes” from 0600-0900 in the Combat PT Tent. For those not familiar with the WOD and the reason behind it, click here.

Now, back to today’s work…

Clean + Jerk Complex (Clean + Hang Clean + Jerk)




Sets start every 4 min

Video courtesy of The Strength Agenda. Last time doing our Clean Complex for this cycle before we re-test our Clean & Jerk 1RM.  As a reminder, one rep of the complex consists of 1 Squat Clean, 1 Hang Squat Clean, and 1 Jerk (Split or Power).  Our focus is the FAST drop under the bar in the Squat Clean and Hang Squat Clean.  %s go up, but reps stay the same, so round time stays at 4 min.


4 Rounds, each for Time:

15/12 Cal Bike

10/7 Cal Ski Erg

Rest 2 Min between Rounds


Score each round separately

So, with the built-in rest between rounds, the goal is for all-out effort each round.  Try to see if you can maintain or beat the previous round’s score every time!

Cool Down:

Super Squat Hip Sequence*- See video below, courtesy of Mobility WOD



TABATA Back Squat

8x (20 sec work/10 sec rest) For max reps

Back squat at 60% of Bodyweight

Bar must stay on back throughout entire TABATA

So yes, you will do 8 sets of 20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest of Back Squat at 60% of you body weight.  Now, although it says max reps every 20 second interval, with this amount of weight, do NOT try to sprint for 20 seconds.  Find a steady pace where you move the whole 20 seconds.  Keep the core tight during the rest.  This won’t be comfortable, but it is doable



Get as far as you can in 14 Min:

14 Power Cleans (115/80)

42 Wall Balls (20/14)

12 Power Cleans

36 Wall Balls

10 Power Cleans

30 Wall Balls

8 Power Cleans

24 Wall Balls

6 Power Cleans

18 Wall Balls

4 Power Cleans

12 Wall Balls

2 Power Cleans

6 Wall Balls

So, every round of Power Cleans drops by two and every round of Wall Balls drop by 6.  As the reps become lower, try to pick up the speed.

Snatch + Hang Snatch + OHS




%s based on 10Jun 1RM

Sets start every 4 min

Video courtesy of The Strength Agenda. Third time hitting our Snatch Complex this cycle.  As a reminder, our complex consists of one Squat Snatch, one Hang Squat Snatch, and one Overhead Squat.  Again, our goal is to continue to increase being comfortable catching the bar at the bottom of the OHS position.  The more comfortable you are, the easier it will be to catch heavier and heavier loads at this position, leading to new PRs on your Snatch.

Sumo Deadlift


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Barbell Brigade. Our third go at Sumo Deadlifts this cycle. The reps drop to 3 and sets go back up to 5, so aim to go heavier per set compare to the 3X5 week.  Get a good set up, brace your core as you lower down your hips.  Get them as close to the bar as possible without losing tension.  Fire out of the hole STRONG!



18 Min AMRAP:

1 Turkish Get Ups per side (53/35)

10 Box Jumps (24/20)

15 KB Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (53/35)

200M KB Front Rack Walk (switch sides at 100M)

Videos courtesy of Train FTW.  Quick demo for the KB Front Rack Walk. Even though a lot of this WOD has a weight in one of your hands, this is really a body control WOD.  Keeping good core stability is paramount in each move today.  In the Turkish Get ups, if your core is relaxed, you can’t keep the positions you need to stand up.  In the box jumps, no core tension means you’ll land on the box folder over and put undue strain on you back and knees.  In the Sumo Deadlift high pulls and the Front rack walk, if your core isn’t engaged, bot of these movements become much more difficult than they need to be.  Tight core!! For the Front Rack Walk

Double Unders

Video courtesy of WOD Prep. So, the goal of this first part isn’t to go 10 Minutes unbroken on Dubs (but if you can, that’s pretty badass), rather look to find more efficiency in the movement.  Meaning, try to focus on continuous reps at a pace that allows for as little tripping on the rope as possible.  And, if you do trip after a big set, take enough recovery time so when you start back up, you don’t trip again right away.  10 Min can be a while, so maybe treat it like an EMOM.  Have a number in mind that you can or think you can hit per minute, and try to make that number each minute.  If it takes you 30 seconds, then rest 30 seconds before going again.  And for those who don’t have Dubs or only a few, this will be 10 minutes of good practice for you.



Interval running

8 Rounds* of:

200M Run
