Weekly Program

MONDAY

Monday’s session continues with the Snatch. It is the same format as last week and the simple goal is to go slightly heavier.

Our metcon also progresses through the same format as last time. But this week the rest periods are reduced from 30 to 15 seconds.

30 seconds on/20 seconds off:

  • Box jumps
  • Overhead squats
  • Push Press
  • Calorie Row

 

TUESDAY

Upper body strength will be the focus on Tuesday in the form of dips and pull ups. The EMOM stays at 10 minutes total so go for more reps than last week.

Tuesday’s metcon is a ladder of 15-10-5-5-10-15 of:

  • Deadlift
  • Dumbbell push jerks
  • 10 minute timecap

 

WEDNESDAY

Wednesday’s session will begin with the front squat, building up to a 5 rep max. Try to go a bit heavier than last week if possible. This will be followed by 3 sets of 5 reps at 80% of the weight for the 5RM.

The metcon is a team workout consisting of as many rounds in possible of 17 minutes of:

  • 40 double kettlebell cleans
  • 40 toes to bar
  • 40 double kettlebell squats
  • 40 pull ups
  • 40 kettlebell shoulder to overhead

 
Double kettlebell movements can be tricky. Make sure to rack the kettlebells in the correct position when doing the clean, front squat and shoulder to overhead. The correct position is in the picture on the left, not the right.

THURSDAY

The strict handstand push up is the focus of Thursday’s session.

EMOM 12 minutes:

  • bench press
  • 16 step ups
  • 8 bent over rows

EMOM 12 minutes:

  • 8 strict press
  • 10 double kettlebell lunges
  • 8 upright rows

The bent row is a an exercise for the back, similar to a ring row in that it is a horizontal pulling movement. In the bent row the bar should pass the knees in the bottom position and be pulled towards the belly button. If the bar does not pass the knees, it usually means the torso is too upright. In the picture below you can see the correct version positions.

Try to avoid the positions seen in this picture (too upright and bar pulled towards the chest).

FRIDAY

After last Friday’s marathon metcon we have a team effort this week. As many rounds as possible in 35 minutes of:

12 rounds of:

  • 6 dumbbell snatches
  • 6 pull ups
  • 4 syncro burpees
  • 10m partner carry

Then

  • 60 pull ups
  • 60 thrusters
  • 120 double unders
  • 60 overhead lunges
  • 120 double unders
  • 60 toes to bar
  • 60 box jumps
