Workout of the day

10 Rounds for time

10 Push-ups
10 hang power cleans

Workout notes

We’ve got another, for time workout today. 10 rounds are on the menu with push-ups and hang power cleans. Choose a weight for the hang power clean that allows you to get the 10 reps done in 1-2 sets. You don’t want to find yourself doing singles or doubles in those later rounds so choose wisely! Push-ups can be scaled as usual to knee push-ups or with your hands on a box or bench. If you want to scale the volume down a bit you can drop the total round count to 6, 7 or 8. Don’t forget to put your score in SugarWOD!

Overhead squats

Workout notes

Today we have a for time workout with the pairing of a very simple movement and a more complex and difficult movement. The overhead squat is one of the more challenging things we do. Make sure that you can keep the bar in a solid position as you travel all the way down into each squat. Front squats are a great scaling option if overhead squats aren’t happening today. There are 150 Sit-Ups and 75 overhead squats in this workout. To scale the total volume you can cut off the first round of 50 and 25 which will drop your rep count to 100 sit-ups and 50 overhead squats.

Workout of the day

AMRAP in 20 Minutes

400M Run
50 power snatch

Workout notes

Today’s workout is a long duration time priority couplet with a bodyweight movement and a high rep weightlifting movement. The elephant on the patio will most likely be the high volume set of snatches. Load your bar to a very light weight that lets you knock out a large number of reps per set. If you have a familiar kettlebell weight, compare your snatch weight to that. If you swing a 24kg/53lb kettlebell comfortably, a 75 lb barbell would be a huge increase in weight! Compare that to suddenly deciding to use a 32kg kettlebell in a high rep workout. Keep the bar light and work through each set of fifty in large sets.

Burpees
Thrusters

Workout notes

There’s nowhere to hide in a thruster/burpee combo! Today’s workout looks like a doozy, but like most workouts how you approach it will make a big difference. We’re working with a VERY light thruster today so make sure that you choose a weight that allows you to work in big sets even under extreme fatigue. Keep moving as best you can through the burpees and just keep chipping away!

Scaling

standard: Training bar and/or cutting off the round of 50.

Box jumps
Kettlebell sumo deadlift high pull

Workout notes

We have a for time workout today with box jumps and kettlebell sumo deadlift high pulls on the menu. You’ll start with box jumps before moving on to your kettlebell. Using a kettlebell for this movement will most likely prove to be a bit easier than when we use a barbell. It is totally ok to have to break up the reps during the first couple of rounds. Focus on keeping your back flat with your chest up through each rep as you drive and pull that weight up to chest height. Do your best to keep your transitions quick between each movement especially as you get into the single digit rep rounds.

Scaling

standard: 20/12 kg, step ups 24/20″

Workout of the day

AMRAP in 20 minutes

40 sit-ups
30 walking lunge steps
20 push-ups

Workout notes

We’re taking a break from the weights today and moving through three bodyweight movements for twenty minutes. The push-ups will be the sticking point for many people so choose a scaling option that allows you to keep moving but is still challenging. As always we’re looking for full range of motion push-ups, making contact with the ground at the bottom of each rep and locking out elbows at the top. Do your best to settle in to a sustainable pace and keep moving for the full 20 minutes.

Scaling

standard: bodyweight
rx: bodyweight
sport: 20 toe-to-bar, double dumbbell weighted lunges 50/35 lb, SHSPU
overachiever: 20 toe-to-bar, double dumbbell weighted lunges 75/55 lb, Def SHSPU

You will restart on the devil press every time the minute of work restarts. Your score for this workout will be your total completed rounds and all of your extra reps added up at the end.

Workout of the day

AMRAP in 15 minutes

5 Strict presses
30 Double unders

Workout notes

Today’s workout may look quite simple, but choosing the right weight here will be important! You will want to choose a weight for the strict press that allows you to finish all 5 reps unbroken when you start. Expect this movement to get exponentially harder as the workout goes on. The double unders will only make the strict press more challenging. Make sure to squeeze your lower body and midline as you press overhead to avoid arching your back. Double Unders can be scaled to a smaller number to make them more manageable or single unders are also an option with a few double under attempts sprinkled in.
