CONDITIONING for Sunday 8/9/2020

“It is the quality of one’s convictions that determines success, not the number of followers.” -Remus Lupin

tabata sumo squats immediately into tabata hi/lo planks

AMRAP 20:00
20 v-ups
30 squat cleans, medium weight
40 bicycles
50 jumping jacks

Ultimately, this workout is all about the squat cleans. The other movements will be your rest, and the jumping jacks will help shake out the muscles. Find a rep amount you can consistently complete for the cleans and stick to it. You can use a med ball, a heavy object at home to simulate a med ball, a dumbbell or kettlebell, or a barbell loaded to a medium weight.

CONDITIONING for Friday 8/7/2020

“Working hard is important. But there is something that matters even more: believing in yourself.” -HP

Tabata glute bridges to Tabata Cossack squats

every minute on the minute x 30:00
a.) 16 overhead lunges
b.) 40 speed skaters
c.) 16 single leg squats
d.) 40 Russian twists
e.) 40 mountain climbers

This is a long EMOM. Every movement should take roughly 30-40 seconds of the minute allotted. If it’s taking longer, scale the reps to fit in that time frame.  To keep it simple, it was written so that each rep per side equals 1. Right leg, 1. Left leg, 2. etc. For example, you’ll do 20 mountain climbers on each leg in a round. Same for all the movements. For pistols, you can adjust squat depth use a chair or bench as a scale.  For the overhead lunges, use a medium to heavy weight. This can be a kettlebell, dumbbell, or household item like a bag of flour or a frying pan. If going overhead is challenging, scale by holding the weight in a rack position.

CONDITIONING for Wednesday 8/5/2020

“Being different isn’t a bad thing. It means you’re brave enough to be yourself.” -LL

Tabata cossack squats immediately into Tabata broad jumps, then

21-15-9-3 reps for time:
HSPU (or pike pushups)
Jumping lunges

We have another sprint! If you don’t have a wall or don’t have HSPU yet, use pike pushups, or the hardest pushup version you have. The jumping lunges will tire your legs quickly (L+R=1), so find a number of reps that you can maintain. The lower numbers should be unbroken for both movements. Keep pushing! This will go quickly.

CONDITIONING for Tuesday 8/4/2020

“No good sittin’ worryin’ abou’ it. What’s comin’ will come, an’ we’ll meet it when it does.” -R

tabata out and overhead squat directly into tabata pushup + 2 shoulder taps, then

AMRAP 10:00
10 Bulgarian split squats, right leg
10 burpees
10 Bulgarian split squats, left leg
10 alt devil’s press (or burpee + thruster)

Similar to “Dobby” last week, this workout may feel much longer than 10 minutes, so make sure you’re warmed up before starting. The key is to not come out of the gate too hot, but also don’t take too much rest. 

The Bulgarian squats are unweighted, but you can absolutely challenge yourself and hold a weight while doing them, if you can do a full set unbroken. The transition time between movements is your rest because it takes an extra second to set up and get out of Bulgarian squats. 

The devil’s press is alternating between arms and can use a dumbbell or kettlebell. If using a weighted backpack, you can do a burpee into a thruster with the backpack.
