At Home WOD

10 rounds for time:

15 box jumps
200m run

Workout Notes

We made it to Friday…barely. Murph on Monday, an impossible workout on Wednesday, one hundred degree heat all week, it wasn’t easy but we wouldn’t have had it any other way. For today’s workout we have ten rounds of fifteen box jumps plus a two hundred meter run for time. Use something sturdy for the box jumps. Step ups, broad jumps, squat jumps, or double-unders all work as solid alternatives. Be sure to stand up all the way on top of your box. Push the run and get started on the box jumps as soon as you return! With such a high volume of box jumps, make sure to warm up and stretch before attacking this one. Let your coach know if you have questions or need scaling suggestions.

AMRAP 20 minutes

10 snatches
7 push-ups
4 overhead walking lunge steps

Workout Notes

Today’s workout is a long duration triplet with two lifting movements and one bodyweight movement. Start with ten alternating snatches. Aim to drive your equipment from the ground to the overhead position in a straight line. Lockout completely overhead. Move on to seven push-ups. Today is a great day to choose a more difficult version of a push-up than you normally would for a workout. Small, sustainable sets of push-ups will go a long way. However, if at any point you hit complete push-up meltdown, simply scale back the difficulty for the remaining time. Finish each round with four overhead walking lunge steps. No need to alternate every rep, but do shoot for equal work on both sides. Goblet lunges or bodyweight lunges are great alternatives if you have any issue with that overhead position.

At Home WOD

Every 4 minutes for 5 rounds:

20 clean and jerks
15 burpees
10 hang squat clean thrusters

Workout Notes

Treat each round like its own “for time” workout today. Start a new round at 0:00, 4:00, 8:00, 12:00, and 16:00 on the clock. Use the remaining time in each round as rest. Start with twenty clean and jerks. Alternate if you are using a single piece of equipment. Make sure that each new rep starts on the ground (or with a ground tap). Next up is the ex-boyfriend/girlfriend that keeps coming back: you act like you don’t want them around but you’re secretly happy thinking that they’ve changed, next thing you know they’ve hurt you again…it’s burpees (fifteen of them)! Finally, finish with ten hang squat clean thrusters. The simplest way to describe it is as follows: Deadlift + squat clean + thruster. The deadlift is only necessary each time you start a new set. Make sure to hit depth in your squat and finish each rep locked out overhead. Again, shoot to alternate arms if possible. Good luck to whoever is doing, “Live at 5!”

“Upside Down Annie”

AMRAP 12 minutes

10-20-30-40-50…
double-unders
sit-ups

Workout Notes

Awesome job with “Murph” everyone! We saw some really solid times and creative variations. Even if you are feeling a little sore, grab your jump rope and give this workout a shot! Today we have a variation of “Annie.” You will climb the ladder as far as you can in twelve minutes. Start with ten double-unders followed by ten sit-ups. Add ten reps to each new round. Scale the double-unders as needed. If you are going for single-unders, be sure to get one attempt every five to ten reps. Lateral hops, box jumps, or mountain climbers will all work as substitutes. Let your coach know if you have any questions. See you at 9am for Zoom class!

Saturday Super Zoom

For time:

400m run
50 cleans
400m run
50 jerks
400m run
50 front squats
400m run

Workout Notes

Choose your equipment wisely today! Make sure it is a weight that you are comfortable knocking out large sets of cleans, jerks, and squats with. There is a total of one mile of running throughout today’s workout. Feel free to substitute rowing or biking if you would like. Each clean will start from the ground. With an engaged back, drive your weight up to your shoulder and catch in a partial squat. Alternate if you are using a single piece of equipment. For the jerks, shoot to get equal work done on each side, but feel free to knock out many reps in a row with the same arm before switching. Utilize a strong leg drive and a dip in the catch. Make sure to finish with arms and legs locked out at the top of each rep. Goblet squats are a great alternative to front squats. Air squats work too! See you all at 9am for Saturday Zoom class!

For time:

100 double unders
90 walking lunge steps
80 double unders
70 walking lunge steps
60 double unders
50 walking lunge steps
40 double unders
30 walking lunge steps
20 double unders
10 walking lunge steps

Workout Notes

Double unders and lunges today. Start your workout with one-hundred double unders followed by ninety lunge steps. Continue to alternate between movements, subtracting ten reps every set. There are a few ways to scale today’s workout. First consider scaling the number of double unders to a rep scheme that works for you. If you do not have a jump rope, sub in lateral hops, jumping jacks, box jumps, or mountain climbers. Scaling the number of lunges is also an option. Feel free to add weight if you are looking for a more difficult workout. Tune in at 6pm for Zoom class with Coach Jakob!

AMRAP 20 minutes

400m run
then
max set of strict push-ups

Workout Notes

Think “Nicole” for today’s workout. Your workout will be scored by number of rounds and total push-ups completed. Other than that, it’s pretty straight-forward. Each round will start with a four-hundred meter run followed by a max set of push-ups. Feel free to choose whichever push-up style you would like. Go until you hit failure! No resting on the ground or in the top of a plank though. Coaches will be driving around Davis all day to make sure no one is cheating. Penalties for cheating include: washing Coach Alex A’s Prius, more push-ups, posting an embarrassing picture in the “CFD At Home” Facebook group, or singing fifteen seconds of your favorite song in the Saturday Zoom class. Run fast and get swole!

At Home WOD

10 rounds of 90 seconds on, 30 seconds off:

8 weighted step ups
6 push press
4 hang snatch

Workout Notes

Treat each round like an AMRAP today. Complete as many rounds as possible in each ninety second period. Try to choose one weight that you can use across all movements. Start with eight weighted step ups. Hold your weight however you would like but make sure to keep your chest tall. Follow that up with six push presses. No need to alternate, but distribute the work evenly between both arms. Drive up with your legs and finish with your weight locked out over head. Remember, once your legs are locked out, they stay locked out. Finally, finish with four hang snatches. Utilize a swing between your legs in-between reps. The movement is similar to a one-arm kettlebell swing. Make sure to start each round with eight weighted step ups regardless of where you finished in the previous round. Count your rounds and extra reps separately for your score today. Tune in at 12pm for zoom class with Coach Alex!

For time:

20 overhead squat
35 power clean
50 box jumps
35 power cleans
20 overhead squats
35 power cleans
50 box jumps
35 power cleans
20 overhead squats

Workout Notes

Today you will need a weight and a box. Choose a weight that works for both overhead squats and power cleans. Also make sure it is a weight you are comfortable knocking out large set sizes. The most technical part of the workout will likely be the overhead squats. If you have a barbell, utilize a wide grip, keep your chest tall, and gaze forward throughout. If you have a dumbbell or a kettlebell, the overhead squats will be even more difficult. Consider scaling to goblet squats if those are giving you trouble. Attack the power cleans however you would like and move at a sustainable pace through the box jumps. In terms of scaling, think about the total number of reps per movement: sixty overhead squats, one-hundred box jumps, and one-hundred and forty power cleans. From there, think about the number of reps you would like to do and adjust the workout accordingly. Text your coach if you need any suggestions. See you all at 9am!

At Home WOD

For time:

10 rounds:
10 thrusters
20 sit-ups

Workout Notes

Today’s workout might remind you of 17.5 and should be a fun one! Ten rounds for time: ten thrusters and twenty sit-ups. Start each round with those thrusters. As usual, make sure to hit full depth on the squat portion of the and to lock out fully overhead. If you are using a single dumbbell or kettlebell, alternate arms however you see fit. Consider going a full round on each arm before switching (five rounds on each). Next, complete twenty sit-ups. Choose a pace on the sit-ups that you can maintain for ten rounds. Use the sit-ups to recover and push the thrusters. Concerned about the volume today? Scale the workout down to seven or eight rounds. Let your coach know if you have any questions. See you at 9am for Zoom class!
