19.2 Sunday Crew!

19.2 Sunday Crew!

Get your plan in place for “Mobility March”. Since we’ll be pushing ourselves to the max this month with our competition wods, it is going to be important to take care of nagging issues before they become more serious. Each person is encouraged to write down 2-5 mobility/rehab/prehab exercises that they want to commit to doing before or after each workout for the month of March. Pick exercises that will benefit you and your issues. Here are a few ideas:

Back: GHD Back Extensions/Hip extensions, Reverse Hyper, supermans, banded goodmornings, foam roller

Shoulders: X-Symmetry, dumbbell shoulder exercises, lacrosse ball/wall massage, band stretches

Knees: mini bands series, squat therapy, IT band foam roller

Feet: lacrosse ball massage, calf and ankle stretches

Core: GHD sit ups, Russian twists, weighted sit ups, V-ups

This would also be a good time to work on muscle activation if you have a particular muscle that is not firing. It is important to take care of our bodies, we beat them up pretty good! Ask a coach if you need help with ideas that would be good for you.

Strength: BACK SQUAT

Every 4:00 for 12:00 (3 sets) do 5 Back squats

WOD: 10:00 AMRAP

100ft Double kettlebell front rack walk (53/35lbs)

20 Jumping lunges

10 Bottom half strict toes to bar

*Use dumbbells as needed.

Intended Stimulus: This is a lower body and trunk stamina focused workout. The load should be doable for 100ft unbroken on the kettlebell front rack walk. The jumping lunges will burn but should be completed at a relatively quick pace. Attempt to use zero momentum on the bottom half strict toes to bar....quality is the priority over the speed on this movement today.

PARTNER FUN

In a team of 2,

AMRAP 12:00:

Partner 1:

75 Double unders

Partner 2:

75 Double unders

Partner 1: 50ft Carry

Partner 2: 50ft Carry

Partner 1:

0:30 Ring plank hold

Partner 2:

0:30 Ring plank hold

*If needed change to 3 Rounds NFT for use of equipment.

INTENDED STIMULUS

This works the trunk and shoulders statically in 2 different movements and utilized in the double unders to elevate the heart rate. The carries should be doable unbroken initially and athletes may potentially need to take quick breaks as the workout progresses.
