HIIT WOD – 12pm

Track Day!

Max Sandbag ground over shoulder
rest 2 mins

-then-
4 rounds
Sub 3min 400m with sandbag
Rest 2 min from end of 3min interval

There are two great options for your overhead squat grip-width:

  1. Use the same grip you use for the snatch
  2. Use a grip slightly-closer than (1.). Although it requires more mobility, it’s definitely more stable.
  3. (Bonus) Front squat if the overhead position isn’t stable. You’ll still have to keep a vertical torso to be successful for the volume of reps required today.
