Here’s your workout tomorrow:

It’s pretty gnarly.

We’re going to increase the amount of time for the workout and we’ll do our best to prepare you for it, but if you’re interested in a tad more strategy then check this out. With all of the burpee complex practice and pogo jumping volume we’ve been trying to hit I think you’ll be more comfortable on the ground and bouncing off of the ground, but we’ll see.

Do you have a previous effort you can research and improve upon? I just checked my journal and all my notes said were “QUADS. ON. FIRE.” 😩

Did you know 5-time CrossFit Games Champion Mat Fraser recently started his own YouTube channel? Recently they released a segment called The Fraser Files where he breaks down some of his previously-recorded efforts and weirdly enough it’s #18point2!

CONDITIONING for Wednesday 2/3

READ: Mat Fraser: “Why I’m Retiring” – Morning Chalk Up


CONDITIONING for Tuesday 1/26/2021


3 total rotations (or about 10:00) of :30 work, :10 rest
– deficit reverse lunge
– bumper ground-to-overhead
– Russian twist
– bumper-facing burpee
– calf raise


a. Pullup Ladder: EMOM do 1-2-1 reps x4 rounds, as strict as possible.

b. every 90 seconds do 3 thrusters (ascending in weight) x 8 sets. Max L-sit in between sets if you want a challenge.


100 reps each, for time:
– hang power snatches, 30/20/PVC
– push presses, 30/20/PVC
– sumo deadlift high pulls, 30/20/PVC
– front squats, 30/20/PVC

Choose a weight that is appropriately light and plan to break each exercise into multiple sets. Like with her cousin ANGIE, the goal for ANDI is TIME, so take short breaks that allow continuous movement. Don’t write-off the PVC, especially if you haven’t been in the overhead shape for some time.

REMINDER: We moved the journals to the back, before your enter the cubby area. Athletes can ask coaches to grab their journals for recording.


Each a minute, doing all on the left side before the right: Quad stretch/roll, glute stretch/roll, lat stretch/roll, tricep stretch/roll
