This week were incorporating some single arm/leg strength work to fix some deficiencies, and even out both sides of our body.

On Saturday we have a lower body WOD, with both static movements and dynamic movements paired together, and of course just to make things a little spicier, we’ve also added some burpees.

WEEK 24 June 12- June 18

Were incorporating some burpee penalties on some of the WOD’s this week, to further increase intensity in workouts, as well as our overall conditioning. Monday’s workout is incredibly grip intensive with descending reps of toes to bar, and ascending reps of box jumps. Were also adding some jump squats on Wednesday to build explosive power in our legs, as well as develop muscular endurance for our lower body. On both Thursday and Friday our WOD is not for time, but for quality. Take this time to focus on good reps, and feel the target areas being worked. Saturday is the benchmark WOD “Filthy Fifty” and Sunday is a shorter version of “Barbara”
