WEEK 34 Aug 28- Sept 3

This week we have a few conditioning pieces in the form of a long partner row, a 3 round max effort sprint on the assault bike, and a 1 mile run on the WOD for Saturday. We introduced the barbell snatch technique last week, and everyone has been doing amazing, so this week were picking up where we left of when we do a snatch workout on Sunday. Everyone has been pushing their fitness but don’t forget to get some mobility work in before or after class to keep your bodies happy and healthy. See you all at the gym this week.

On Thursday we have a 1.2 km med ball run, and a short but effective metcon that includes handstand push ups, calories on the bike and alternating jump lunges.

WEEK 31 Aug 7- Aug 13

This week were working on our endurance with the workouts being long and challenging. We have a tough couplet on Monday with thrusters and burpees, and a long endurance workout on Tuesday with skipping, rowing, and running. This week we have 3 long workouts, one on Wednesday, another on Friday, and the last one being on Sunday.
We’ve also been seeing great results with our olympic lifting especially on the cleans, so this week were introducing a new movement in the barbell power snatch. Were also adding a new body weight movement in the chest to bar pull ups.
