Thursday Workout: Power Snatch/T2B, Gym Strength/Core Work

IMG_5725
Benchmark Month!  For the month of January, we will be doing 2 benchmark WODs each week on Monday and Friday. In 4-6 months, we will repeat those benchmark WODs to have another measure of your progress.  Make sure you record your scores and post to the comments! It’s as simple as recording your time and any scaling options that you used during the workout.  We are all here to get better, and posting will help you keep track and be accountable for your progress!

Also, looking ahead, we will be incorporating some gymnastics skill work into classes twice a week or as optional skill work on your own. And be on the lookout for a more technical gymnastics class starting up later in the month on Jan 22 (1x/week)!  Thanks!

*Continue cycling through this within a 10 minute period.  Go for quality and rest when needed.

  1. 86 Rx vs. 113 w/ 55# and V-Ups last time
    That was humbling.

    Hollow Rocks: 80
    Superman: 20 rocks, then 3 x 30 sec hold
    Broad Jumps: 30

  2. 126. However I started the second round at 15 reps going down versus 3 going up.
