STRENGTH

Part 1: Pull-up Work, Week 2 Day 2:

Eccentric (0-4 reps)

  • 4 Sets: 3-4 x Eccentric Pull-up at BW (bodyweight) + 2.5%, rest 60 seconds between sets

*Each eccentric pull-up is done at a 5 second descent, with 5 second break between reps. Assist using partner! If you cannot maintain a 5 second descent, either use a partner or lessen the number of reps.  If possible, add 2.5% of your bodyweight using weights. (i.e. if you weight 150, add 3-4 pounds.)

Volume (5-12 reps)

  • Every 30 Seconds for 12 Sets: 15% of Max Rep Set

*I.e. if your max rep set was 10 reps, you will perform 1-2 strict pull-ups every 30 seconds for 6 minutes (12 total sets).

Weighted (12+ reps)

  • 5 Sets: Max strict weighted pull-ups (-2) @ BW+ 15%, rest 90 seconds between sets

*Example:  I weigh 185 pounds and performed 12+ reps on the test, so I will do 5 sets of max rep strict weighted pull-ups with an additional 28 pounds (use kettlebells, plates, etc.).  The (-2) means stay 2 reps shy of failure on any given set – if possible, go for at least 5 reps each set.

WOD

Level 1

4 Sets for Max Reps, 40 Seconds ON, 20 Seconds OFF:

  • Slam Ball (25/15)
  • Row (Calories)
  • Burpee Box Step Up (18/12)

Level 2

5 Sets for Max Reps, 40 Seconds ON, 20 Seconds OFF:

  • Power Clean (185/135)
  • Row (Calories)
  • Burpee Box Jump (24/20)

SHARE EQUIPMENT if necessary!  If large class, up to 3 people can share the same rower, box, and barbell. If this is the case, each person will start on a different movement and cycle through.  Work for 40 seconds at each station, and then rest/transition for 20 seconds.  Keep track of total reps and cals on rower (reset the rower each time you get back on it).
