cycles of
12 Deadlifts

Workout notes

Today’s workout is a somewhat unique format. You’ll start by working through one round of 12 Deadlifts, 9 Hang Power Cleans and 6 Push Jerks followed by 15 burpees. After completing the 15 burpees you will return to your barbell for 2 rounds of the complex and again move on to 15 burpees and then back to the bar for 3 rounds of the complex etc. Climb as high as you can adding a round of the barbell complex each time you return to the bar. Choose your weight based on the push jerk and make sure that you never have to break up the 6 reps into more than 2 sets throughout the workout.

Workout of the day

AMRAP in 25 Minutes

Meters on Bike or Rower

Workout notes

Interesting workout on the menu today! We haven’t done something like this in quite some time. One positive of our limited class size is that we can do some interesting workouts that wouldn’t normally work for large groups. Grab yourself the erg of your choice and haul it outside to the patio and settle in for a long ride. Twenty-five minutes is a long time in one position so feel free to get up any time you need to. After time is called your score will be the total number of meters accumulated!

kettlebell swings
sit-ups

push-ups

Workout notes

We’re looking at a long one today with a delicate pairing of two bodyweight movements and two lifting movements. You’ll have eighty-four reps of each so that’s more than three hundred total reps. Pace yourself early and don’t feel the need to start each movement with an “unbroken” set. Adding some rest initially will pay off later in the workout.

Workout of the day

10 rounds of 90 seconds on 30 seconds off

15 box jumps
then
max reps alternating dumbbell power cleans

Workout notes

We’ll have twenty minutes on the clock today for a ten round interval workout. Start each round with a small set of box jumps and then get to working on those dumbbell power cleans. You should have around sixty seconds to knock out cleans. This would be a great opportunity to test a slightly heavier dumbbell than you might normally use if you feel like you are up to the challenge!

Workout notes

We’re up and running at CF Davis on our new patio. When you arrive wear your mask and claim a square to work out in. Bring anything you need like chalk, water etc, and keep it with you. We still have chalk boxes available if you haven’t grabbed one yet, you’ll need it for this workout! Use a light weight so that you can break up each movement by two to three sets max.

Sunday super zoom

10 Rounds of
30 second plank hold
30 seconds of burpees
30 seconds of rest

Workout notes

We’ll set the clock for fifteen minutes and work through a ten round interval workout with thirty seconds spent on two stations and addition thirty seconds for rest each round. Start each round by holding your best plank. That means no snaking or sagging. Keep your core engaged. You’ve been preparing for this all week if you’ve been following along! After you knock out the plank increase the intensity by hammering out as many burpees as you can in thirty seconds. With a vanilla style burpee you’ll be able to get ten+. Sustaining that will be extremely difficult. Most of us should shoot for the six to seven rep range and try to hold that for all ten rounds.

This is the last of our bodyweight beatdowns (for now). We’ll be back on the barbell Monday the 20th on our newly christened CFD patio.

Scaling

standard: plank from the knees and/or elbows, vanilla burpees
rx: plank from the toes and hands, vanilla burpees
sport: plank from the toes and hands, burpees over an object or to a target
overachiever: 30 second L-hang, burpee muscle ups

There is no rest between movements so you’ll have the final ten second rest period to transition between movements.

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
