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 Tuesday 1/26/2021

Warmup

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

Strength

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.

Conditioning

“ANDI”
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.

Fitness, in the CrossFit philosophy, was always meant to challenge all physical skills:

cardiovascular endurance
strength
stamina
flexibility
power
speed
accuracy
agility
balance
coordination

Most seasoned CrossFitters tend to fall into only wanting to develop or play with strength, stamina, and power. This means your cardiovascular endurance isn’t challenged as often, leading to complaints about how bad your endurance is. Training is tolerance building! Show up and do the workouts you don’t want to do.
