Skill

Tabata Plank Hold

For today’s skill we’ll spend four minutes working on your best plank hold. The most important point of the plank is keeping your midline engaged rather than sagging or bending at the hips. You drop down to your elbows and/or knees you need to scale the movement.

At home workout


AMRAP in 15 minutes

60 double unders or Mountain climbers
30 Sit-Ups

Workout notes

If you have a jump rope tackle this workout with double or single unders. You can always do lateral hops as well but they don’t quite tax the arms like mountain climbers do. If you’re more comfortable with an abmat wrap up a towel and set it behind your low back.

Scaling

standard: single unders
rx: double unders
sport: heavy rope and 15 toe-to-bar
overachiever: heavy rope and 30 toe-to-bar

Tabata Hollow Rock/hold

For today’s skill we’ll spend four minutes working on your best hollow hold or hollow rock. The most important point of the hollow is keeping your low back engaged and in contact with the floor. If you need to, bring in your arms and legs so you can hold that position.

Workout of the day

AMRAP in 20 Minutes

30 jumping squats
15 burpees

Workout notes

This workout is a twenty minute couplet of thirty jumping squats and fifteen burpees. For the jumping squats you’ll want to slow down your cadence a bit so you can maintain a jump with both of your feet leaving the ground. Burpees can be done in place with a small jump and clap overhead to finish the rep.

Scaling

rx: jumping squats, vanilla burpees
sport: jumping squats, vanilla burpees w/ a vest

Workout of the day

AMRAP in 6 minutes

Squat clean thrusters

Workout notes

Yep, six minutes of single thrusters. Sounds fun right? This is a great opportunity to test out a bit heavier weight than you might normally use for a barbell workout. You’ll still want a weight you can move quickly with fairly short rest between reps so keep the weight on your bar well below max effort. After six minutes is up your score will be the total number of reps you complete.

Workout of the day

5 rounds of 3 minutes on 1 Minute off

10 Toe-to-bar
20 Dumbbell power cleans

Workout notes

We’re back on the pull-up bar today for some toe-to-bar. We saw pull-ups last Saturday for the first time since the shutdown and this will be the first time most of us have tried toe-to-bar. Play it safe and keep an eye on your hands to make sure they don’t tear. We’ll use the same protocol as last time. Start with a guided warm up in your square and then one at a time get a dumbbell and take it to your pull-up bar along with your chalk. Stay in your area for the toe-to-bar and be sure to sanitize the pull-up bar after the workout.

Scaling

standard: knee raises or v-ups and light enough to do at least 10 unbroken cleans throughout
rx: 50/35 lb

Those with access to a wall could use wall or use the box for pike holds or practice walking hands around box with feet on it in pike position.

Workout of the day

for time
150 Wall ball shots

Workout notes

This workout is a classic single element workout that is sure to leave you gassed. The best strategy is to usually start with a large but sub-maximal set and then chip away with smaller sets. Use a medicine ball weight that feels fairly easy to do around fifteen when fresh.

AMRAP in 10 Minutes

100 Burpees

Workout notes

Today’s workout should be performed two minutes after you complete the skill work for the day. You can use your loaded barbell to jump over or just perform vanilla burpees. The total numbers in this AMRAP are fairly high so getting through even one round will be tough. Scale the number of each movement to a reasonable amount so that you don’t hung up. You should be moving continuously for all ten minutes.

Scaling

standard: vanilla burpees
rx: lateral burpees over the bar
sport: lateral burpees over the bar
