Superhero stance or just reading the whiteboard? 🙂

Third “Testing Phase” of 2018!  Every 4 months we have a 2 week window where we  test many of your core barbell lifts, Girl/Hero WODS, and baseline CFD workouts.

Use these next 2 weeks to either establish and record new numbers or check in with your last testing results.  Each testing element will be a great way to gauge your current conditioning and strength! Recording your numbers for these next 2 weeks is extremely valuable to being accountable to your training and making sure you are growing and progressing in our program.

Last Cycle of 2018 starts on Monday December 10th.
Monday our 2nd week of testing will begin!

A.
Sumo Deadlift or Conventional Deadlift: Athlete’s Choice!
-Suggested Rep scheme: 5-5-3-3-2-2-1-1-1-1…
-10 Sets X 2 minutes or 20 minutes building to a heavy 3 or 1 for the day!

*If you have been put on risers in the past, please use them for today’s heavy effort!

Some notes: The Sumo Deadlift will allow you to lift heavier weights but also is a more technical lift than Conventional Deadlift and will take some time getting used to. If you have limited hamstring mobility and/or lower back issues, choosing the SDL will help shorten the lifting distance and keep undue strain off the lower lumber.  Trying both in your training is essential. Ask yourself; which movement feels more athletic?

B. 
Tabata: 20 seconds On/ 10 seconds OFF X 8 Rounds @ each station
Russian KB Swings
-Choose a heavy weight that allows you to go unbroken every round
Double Unders or Fast Singles
Abmats
