Workout of the Day Saturday Sept 24th 2022

Team Workout
Team of 2. Only 1 person works at a time. Switch whenever you like.

There is no rest between sections. It just keeps compounding until you finish 🙂

Metcon (Time)
For Time:

20 Power Cleans (135/95lbs.)

40 Cals of Choice or 600m Run
20 Power Cleans (155/105lbs.)

60 Pull-Ups
40 Cals of Choice or 600m Run

60 Pull-Ups
40 Cals of Choice or 600m Run

100 Burpees
80 Wall Balls (20/14lbs.)
60 Pull-Ups
40 Cals of Choice or 600m Run
20 Power Cleans (225/155lbs.)

Time CAP: 40min.

Feel free to scale those weights down as needed! I just thought it would be fun to build to some heavy cleans with your partner today. The energy is so high on these team workouts, that I just thought it was fitting 🙂

If you do scale, consider making similar jumps, but just starting at a lighter weight.

Option 2 today for you more advanced athletes, is a Snatch instead of a clean. Mens numbers on that would go like this:

95-115-135-155-175

Women’s would go like this:

65-75-85-95-105

Landmine Curtsy Lunges (3 x 15 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-jXkfoDiwc

– 15 Reps on EACH LEG

– Really focus on the movement and put all the pressure into your glutes. Also, as you watch the video, pay close attention to the hand placement! This is very important if you want to feel comfortable throughout the lift.

Rest 90sec. between sets

Single DB Cleavage Cutter (3 x 20 )
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEWgxUYNYxA

Little bit lighter weight here and just hitting high reps to get those chest fibers pumped! Make sure you choose a weight that is challenging enough to really feel it. In additon, try to squeeze the DB together as you complete each rep!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDhc6emLrck

Rest 90sec. between sets

Alternating DB Curls  (3 x 12 )

– 10 with your toes facing slightly inward
– 10 more reps with your toes facing slightly outward

Rest 90sec. between sets

*Go as heavy as possible (RPE 10 here) with slow and controlled reps. NO bouncing reps or super fast reps.

Warm-up
ALL of the sets above are “Working Sets.” A true set starts at the RPE numbers prescribed above. Warm up sets DO NOT count towards the sets listed  above.

Recommended Warm-Up Routine:
1.) Spend 5-10min. on any kind of low impact cardio
2.) Spend 5min. either foam rolling the primary muscle groups for the day or doing a few stretches that will benefit the primary lift for the day.
3.) Complete 1-3 sets of every movement above with lighter weights than your working sets. (For most of you, this all that’s needed)

How to read “RPE”
RPE means “rate of perceived exertion.” It’s measured on a scale between 1 and 10. 1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest. When it says an RPE of 7, that means that you left 3 reps in the tank. And an RPE of 10 Means that you hit absolute failure. Make sure you truly hit these numbers! This makes or breaks results!

CrossFit:

Working on some squat clean technique today! Focus on really bringing that bar in close to the hip pocket, getting a good triple extension (ankles, knees, and hips full locked out), and then throwing yourself under the bar FAST!

The progression is meant to start out light and slowly build in weight. Swap out weights at anytime, but I threw the 1min. rest in there to give you some extra time before the rep decrease and you most likely throw a lot more on.

Try NOT to power clean and then do a front squat today… We are doing a lot of that in part b below 😉

A.) Squat Clean 
Every 60sec. x 5 Rounds:
3 Squat Cleans

Rest 1min.

Every 60sec. x 4 Rounds:

1 Squat Clean

*Every-time you break, complete 7 Toes-To-Bar

50 Front Squats (95/65lb.)
*Every-time you break, complete 7 American KB Swings (53/70lb.)

50 Toes-To-Bar
*Every-time you break, complete 5 Hang Power Cleans

50 American KB Swings
*Every-time you break, complete 5 Front Squats

Your goal on this one, is to get the biggest unbroken sets possible so that you don’t have to do the penalties. How fast can you get this one done!? And… Can you finish at all!?

ADV Men: 115lb. and a 70lb. KB
ADV Women: 75lb. and  a 53lb. KB

Score is rep you completed out of 200 total. You do not get points for the penalties. If you finish in the time cap, then put 200 with your time in the comments.

Ok here’s the thing, I want to do some 1RM testing but I want to keep you moving as we do it.  So the lifting is the priority today not the cardio and toes to bar. If you need to skip the cardio/TTB once or twice to grab weights or just focus that is fine.

About This Training Cycle:
The NEW CYCLE is HERE!

Length: 8 Weeks

Training Days: 5 Days Per Week. If you would like to train 4 days per week, then take out the density days on Saturday. If you would like to train 3 day per week, then take out Tuesday and Saturdays.

Focus: Full body style per usual, but with a little more strength bias than we have in the past few cycles! So look forward to not only sculpting your body, but also getting STRONG AF! Throughout the next 8 weeks, we will be progressing on the 4 MOST IMPORTANT lifts when it comes it to getting strong and putting on muscle — The squat, bench press, deadlift, and strict press. Weeks 1-7 weights will vary by percentages (based of your 1 rep max) and then on week 8 will attempt a new 1 rep on all lifts!

Equipment Needed: Barbell, Squat Rack, Plates, Dumbbells, and a Pull-Up Bar

Progressive Overload Movements (RPE: 9-10)
Back Squat
Set 1) 5 reps @ 65% of 1RM

Warm-up
ALL of the sets above are “Working Sets.” A true set starts at the RPE numbers prescribed above. Warm up sets DO NOT count towards the sets listed  above.

Recommended Warm-Up Routine:
1.) Spend 5-10min. on any kind of low impact cardio
2.) Spend 5min. either foam rolling the primary muscle groups for the day or doing a few stretches that will benefit the primary lift for the day.
3.) Complete 1-3 sets of every movement above with lighter weights than your working sets. (For most of you, this all that’s needed)

How to read “RPE”
RPE means “rate of perceived exertion.” It’s measured on a scale between 1 and 10. 1 is the lowest and 10 is the highest. When it says an RPE of 7, that means that you left 3 reps in the tank. And an RPE of 10 Means that you hit absolute failure. Make sure you truly hit these numbers! This makes or breaks results!

CrossFit:

We are hitting a “HERO” workout called “CHAD” today. This is normally a solo workout that takes anywhere from 45-70min. for most people. However, as a team of 2, I am hoping that you guys can crank this out in 40min. or less! Feel free to wear a rucksack today, weight vest anything that weighs 45 pounds for men or 35 pounds for women. Try and move AS QUICK AS POSSIBLE and keep continually switching until the time is up! Left + Right = 2 reps.
Teams of 2: (Only 1 person works at a time)

For Time:
1,000 Box Step-Ups (20 in) with a 45/35lb. dumbbell

Accessory Work:
Depending on how everyone is feeling after this, I recommend doing the following “Optional Extra Credit.”

As a team complete:
100 Chin Pull-Ups (underhand grip)
100 Calorie Assault Bike
*Split it up however you like

Sweat:

Teams of 2!! Only 1 person works at a time. Break it up however you like! Just try and finish fast!

Daily D:

“Shoulders + Core Conditioning”

2min. AMRAP:
50 Double Unders
10 DB Push Press 45/30lb
Max Toes-To-Bar in remaining time

Full Body Aesthetics Day 54:

DENSITY Day
DELOAD WEEK

– All 7 minute sections are cut down to 5 minutes today
– Continue to use the same weight you’ve been using, but cut back on the intensity. Instead of hitting it with everything you have, hit it at 70% effort.
– Next week, we will get back after it!
– HAVE FUN!

REST 3-4min. AFTER EACH STATION

DB Lunges  (5min. of MAX REPS)
You may walk around or do reverse step style in place. I recommend using straps to help with the grip.
Incline Barbell Bench Press (5min. of MAX REPS)
Inverted Pull-Up (5min. of MAX REPS)
DB Lateral Raises  (5min. of MAX REPS)
Lee Priest Tricep Extensions (5min. of MAX REPS)

Just keep cycling through this sequence nonstop:

3 Barbell Sit-Ups

*You may also use a plate here as well! They are both equally hard.

Warm-up
ALL of the reps above are “Working Reps.” Be sure to do a few warm up sets before hitting each section. Yes, even though it’s light today, you still need to work through a few reps to get the muscles primed and ready.

Recommended Warm-Up Routine:
1.) Spend 5-10min. on any kind of low impact cardio (Row, bike, etc)
2.) Spend 5min. either foam rolling the primary muscle groups for the day or doing a few stretches that will benefit the primary lift for the day.
3.) Complete 1-3 sets of every movement above with lighter weights than your working sets. (For most of you, this all that’s needed)

CrossFit:

Today’s piece is all about having a long mix of cardio mixed with an emphasis of shoulder to overhead. So you will notice the hang clean numbers going down and the push press numbers going up.
