Olympic Weightlifting WODBuffer Week

This week the focus is on making sure you understand and have the proper protocols of what you need as an individual to set yourself up for success when the next program begins in a week.

Kettlebell WOD

Bent press progressions
Weighted single leg deadlifts

Endurance WOD?

A handful of you athletes were asking when our seasonal ENDURANCE CLUB would return. What if we just posted a program to the blog every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with what you should do?

With any running workout, you can increase the intensity by putting on a weight-vest or ruck (We use GoRuck Ruckers). Just remember to maintain the intended stimulus the workout was designed for- in today’s case it’s an ENDURING workout, meaning it should feel like cardio: lower-powered continual movement from start to finish.
