FIND A DISTANCE THAT TAKES 45-50 Seconds FOR THE RUN!

Guys - this is an all time #blamejulian moment. He created this for his birthday! The main version is the bike/row version listed in Program C.

You NEED to choose a weight on the clean and jerk that is super light - that you can cycle sets of 9 with for at least the first half of this workut! It's a lot of reps!

If you need to lower the number, even after you have lowered the weight - do that! Try 6 instead of 9.

For the clean and jerks, just because it's light doesn't mean it can be sloppy.

Pick up with a flat back. Keep arms long until you fully extend your knees and hips. Shrug and pull under. Stand and use your leg drive for the jerk. Keep the belly tight with the dumbbells overhead.

Only one head of each dumbbell needs to touch for each rep at the bottom.

Run distance should take about 45 seconds. If it takes longer than that on your first round - you are in trouble, so lower it down.

If you need to sub the run for weather or space reasons you may sub 45 seconds of double unders or 45 seconds of mtn climbers!

MAMA MODIFICATIONS

HANG POWER CLEAN - You could also try less weight. For pregnant mamas with bellies that interrupt the most efficient path of the bar, be sure to sub DBs for the bar so you are not training inefficient movement patterns.

JERK/PRESS - Focus on proper alignment of your pelvis and spine. If you find yourself over extending in your back or coning in your belly sub less weight, Strict Press, Seated Strict Press, or even Front Raises.

RUN/JOG - To avoid the added pressure to the pelvic floor that the impact from running can create, sub: Taps, Row, Bike, Farmer Carry, Sled Push/Drag, Quick Step Ups. If you're postpartum and working towards rehab-ing your core and pelvic floor you can choose from the same subs for pregnancy and/or scaling the distance that you run so that you can focus on your posture, breathing mechanics, and managing the pressure of your or and pelvic floor.

For the 1 min section you can choose between bike, row, jogging or taps. Go at an uncomfortable pace, but something that will allow you to keep moving the whole time.

For the hand DB or KB clean you can do this with a single kb or db, or 2 dumbbells. You will start with the object(s) at the waist. Perform a small dip by bending the knees slightly. Stand up hard and fast helping to make the db or kb weightless. Shrug the shoulders and pop the weight up to your chest by rotating the hands around.

For the press you will simply PRESS the weight over your head. Get the weight all of the way up until the biceps are by the ears. Keep the belly tight and squeeze the cheeks.

Okay guys this one is full throttle. We want you going hard for the entire 3 minutes but of course you will want to maintain some consistency between rounds. Make sure you conserve enough energy to really gun it in the 4th AMRAP.

Choose a load and a version of the pull up that you can go unbroken the whole way or close to it!

For the pull ups you may do strict (lower the number to something you won't really have to break). Kipping/butterfly, jumping, ring/trx row. You may also do a row with the bar in the rack OR do a bent over row if none of those other options are available. You may do banded pull ups but control the descent and be sure to avoid the bounce out of the bottom.

Whatever you choose make sure that you start all the way at the bottom and either get the chin over or pull the chest all the way up at the top!

For these squats, make sure the dumbbells are resting on the shoulders and the elbows are high! Keep the chest up, but do not overextend the back. Keep the belly tight!

Reach the butt back and down trying to keep the elbows and chest up as you descend. Drive the knees out and keep the heels down throughout. The bottom position should be where the butt is lower than the top of the knee. Do not collapse in this position. Do not go so low that the back starts to round.

To stand, lead with the chest and elbows - keeping the dumbbells on the shoulders and elbows high. Stand fully for each rep.

Choose a load that you can go unbroken the whole way or close to it!

For the muscle ups you can do them unbroken or as quick singles. Rather than trying to pull straight up and over the bar or rings, try to get a really hollow body position so your shoulders come up behind the bar/rings. Then drive your shoulders and torso forward over the bar/rings. To complete the rep, press your body up until your arms are fully extended.

For these squats, make sure the bar is resting on the shoulders with a loose fingertip grip and elbows high! Keep the chest up, but do not overextend the back. Keep the belly tight!

6 Ring/TRX or Upright Row
8 Squats

Idea weight if doing upright row:
Men: 35-55#
Women: 12-30#

Score: Total Number of Completed Rounds + Any Additional Reps
Goal: 15 Rounds!

For this workout you will do 6 Ring or TRX type rows - OR an upright row with a single KB or pair of lighter dumbbells. Then you will do 8 Air Squats.

For the ring/trx rows remember that the more parallel your body is to the ground the more difficult these become. Make sure you start with straight arms at the bottom each time and pull the chest all of the way to the rings/bands.

You may also choose to do some sort of stretchy band pull down if that's what you have available.

If you are doing the upright row you will hold the weight either a heavier weight in both hands or a lighter pair of dumbbells - one per hand. Stand tall, pull the shoulders back. Shrug like you're saying "I don't know" then pull the weight up your body with your elbows high and outside (like you're zipping up your jacket). Bring weight between chest and collarbone level.

Lower the weight down the body to re-set for next rep.

For the air squats the feet are shoulder width apart with the heels down. Stand tall and tighten the belly. Reach the butt back and down and drive the knees out. Keep the chest up and heels down.

The goal is to get the butt lower than the knees at the bottom with heels down, knees out, no plopping, and chest up!

If you tend to collapse or plop when going that low you can try using something as a counter balance.

If you are unable to go that low due to pain or other issue - you may choose to squat to a higher target.

Score: Total Reps
Goal: 300+

Make it a goal to use as much of the minute as possible for work rather than rest. Lower the load and take smaller sets with really short breaks.

For the double unders, your rope will pass two times under your feet for every one jump. Keep your chest up and your landing soft. It's just like a single under but you jump a little higher and spin the rope faster using your wrists, not your arms!

For this workout you will want to choose a type/number of double unders that you can hit consistently for multiple sets. Rather than trying to do 60 seconds of solid jumping, think about 15-25 seconds of work, quick reset then continue. If double unders are going to be really broken up, maybe choose to go with the dumbbell hop overs or singles for this workout.

For the single DB power snatch the dumbbell will start on the ground. You will have your feet under your shoulders with the dumbbell between the feet and the heels down. You will have a hinge at the hip and a bend at the knee. Chest stays lifted, arm straight and back flat. To lift drive the heels down and lift the chest. Once past the knees think - jump - shrug - pull the elbow high and outside (to keep the dumbbell close) - pull under the dumbbell slightly as you punch to lock out with the bicep by the ear. In the catch the heels are down, knees out, chest up. Stand to finish. Alternate hands with each rep.

For the push up we want to see a rigid body position with shoulders above or beyond the wrists and hands just wider than shoulder width. Squeeze your butt, your thighs and your belly. No sagging hips or snaking.

Keep your elbows within 45 degrees to the body as you lower your chest and thighs to make contact with the floor. Stay engaged. Press back up to the the top until arms are totally straight.

Definitely go from the knees or elevate your hands to maintain good position and get a decent amount of volume.

For the hang power snatch, start with a wide grip and deadlift the bar up to the waist. Feet should be under the hips with the heels down. Arms are long and straight. Dip by bending the knees slightly and hinging at the hip slightly (keep the back flat and chest lifted). Keep the bar close to the body and let it slide down the leg. Stand up hard and fast. Shrug the shoulders (keep the bar close)! Pull the elbows high and outside (scarecrow) as you pull under the bar slightly. Catch the bar in a partial overhead squat. Stand fully to complete the rep. Lower the bar back to the waist.

For the sandbag ground to overhead, grab hold of the overhand or neutral handles, bend your knees and lift your chest up. Keep the heels down. With your back flat and belly tight, stand up with the sandbag by driving through the heels and lifting the chest. Explode UP with the legs and hips. Shrug the shoulders. Pull the elbow high and outside. Then PUNCH the sandbag to lock out finishing with the biceps by the ear!

For the push up we want to see a rigid body position with shoulders above or beyond the wrists and hands just wider than shoulder width. Squeeze your butt, your thighs and your belly. No sagging hips or snaking.

MAMA MODIFICATIONS

Double/Single Unders - To avoid the added pressure to the pelvic floor that DUs/SUs can create, sub: Taps, Row, Bike, Quick Step Ups, Sled Push, or even Calf Raises. If you're postpartum and working towards rehab-ing your core and pelvic floor you can choose from the same subs for pregnancy and/or scaling the number of DUs/SUs down to a number that is realistic for your to practice proper positioning and pressure. Any leaking or heaviness in the pelvic floor is a sign that you need to adapt your approach or change the movement to less impact.

DB HANG SNATCH - You can always choose a lighter weight. If you're not comfortable going over head right now or find that you are "coning" during the movement you might want to try the SHIFT programming with KB Swings.

PUSH UPS - If you notice coning/doming in the plank position or if you find yourself straining to breathe or bearing down forcefully with your breath, sub an elevated push up with hands on box, bench, wall, table, etc. You could even sub a modified bench press or seated shoulder press.

KB SWING - If you notice and coning or pulling in the overhead position of the swing, sub shoulder height or eye level swings and focus on posture and breathing mechanics. If the shape of your body (preggo bellies!) is making the bottom position a little too tight for comfort, you can sub a single arm swing!

For this workout you will rotate each minute through the stations.

The first minute of each round will be single unders or taps. Taps are almost like running in place - tapping one toe at a time on your KB or DB! You may also choose to do a super low step up!

For the KB/DB Swings you will hold the weight in both hands at the hips. Heels are down, arms are straight, chest up and belly tight. You will hinge at the hips and reach the butt back. Make sure the heels are down. Allow the knees to bend slightly.

Pull the weight back between the legs. Stand up hard and fast. Then guide the weight to eye level with the arms still pretty straight.

Allow gravity to bring the weight back down, but don't allow it to pull you forward. Heels down and belly tight!

For the push ups you may do regular, knee, or elevated push ups. Make sure the hands are just outside shoulder width and that they are down by your chest. When you lower keep the belly tight to avoid sagging or snaking. The elbows should go back and in instead of flaring out. When pressing back up you will keep the belly tight.

The goal is to touch the chest to the ground at the bottom and come up to a full lock out at the top.

Choose a version that will allow you to get at least 10 reps each time.

Women: 18-20""

Score: Total Time
Goal: Under 16 minutes

Think about moving well on this one. If you set a sustainable pace and focus on continuous movement rather than short bouts of really fast movement, you will cruise right through.

For the step up and overs, hold the dumbbells at your waist or on your shoulders. Make sure you step up with your foot completely on the box. Drive out of the heel for each rep and avoid the knee caving in. You may step off of the front if you are comfortable or turn around on top of the box and step off that way.

For the box height roughly 24" for fellas and 20" for ladies. If you don't have a box, use a bench, if you don't have a bench, you can step up on to a stair as you would a normal step up or use a stack of plates.

Nothing to step on at all? Sub lunges!

Feel free to lower the weight all of the way down to nothing if you need to!

Toes to bar starts with you hanging from the bar with hands slightly wider than shoulders, shoulders drawn down away from your ears and arms straight, think about pushing the bar out in front of you. Push your shoulders back behind the bar as you raise your toes up to touch bar between your hands.
For subs for the T2B you can use Knee-Ups, V-ups, Supine Toe Touches or regular sit-ups.

For the burpee box jumps, place your hands on the ground facing your box. Jump or step your feet back. Get your chest and thighs to the ground. Press to lockout (top of push up). Jump or step the feet in. Then, using a two foot take off and a two foot landing, jump up onto your box.

Make sure when you jump and when you land that the knees do not cave in! We recommend stepping back down off the box.

You can also modify to step up or lunge after the burpee.

Score: Total Time
Goal: Under 16 minutes

Think about moving well on this one. If you set a sustainable pace and focus on continuous movement rather than short bouts of really fast movement, you will cruise right through. Stay focused on keeping your belly tight in the step ups and toes to bar.

For the step ups you will have the barbell on your back. Height for step up should be 22-24" for Men and 18-20" for women. If you can make that happen and it is a safe and challenging but comfortable height for you - go for it! Otherwise, lower the height of the box or switch to lunges.

Place your WHOLE foot on the box when stepping up. Make sure you drive through the heel and stand all of the way up - don't allow your knee to cave in as you stand. Alternate feet at the BOTTOM of each step. Each time you step up counts as 1 rep. So for a set of 24 you end up doing 12 per side.

Toes to bar starts with you hanging from the bar with hands slightly wider than shoulders, shoulders drawn down away from your ears and arms straight, think about pushing the bar out in front of you. Push your shoulders back behind the bar as you raise your toes up to touch bar between your hands.

For the burpee box jumps, place your hands on the ground facing your box. Jump or step your feet back. Get your chest and thighs to the ground. Press to lockout (top of push up). Jump or step the feet in. Then, using a two foot take off and a two foot landing, jump up onto your box.

Make sure when you jump and when you land that the knees do not cave in! We recommend stepping back down off the box rather than jumping.

You can modify to step up on the box or do a lunge.

Goal: Under 16 minutes

Think about moving well on this one. If you set a sustainable pace and focus on continuous movement rather than short bouts of really fast movement, you will cruise right through. Stay focused on keeping your belly tight in the step overs and toes to bar.

For the sandbag step overs, choose a box that is roughly 22-24in for men and 18-20in for women. First, clean the bag to your right shoulder. Make sure you are stable and the bag is secure on your shoulder. Plant your left hand on the box. Step your right foot on to the box. Keep your belly tight as you pick up your left foot and step it through to the other side of the box. Step your right foot to the floor, turn and repeat from the other side.

Modify by lowering the weight or box height. Possible subs are Sandbag Step Ups, Sandbag Step Up Over or try it with a dumbbell in one hand.

Toes to bar starts with you hanging from the bar with hands slightly wider than shoulders, shoulders drawn down away from your ears and arms straight, think about pushing the bar out in front of you. Push your shoulders back behind the bar as you raise your toes up to touch bar between your hands.

MAMA MODIFICATIONS

WEIGHTED/UNWEIGHTED STEP UPS - If you have any pubic symphysis pain or SPD focus on keeping your pelvis neutral and your hips level. You could always do lighter weight, smaller or shorter step/less range of motion. You can also try stepping laterally onto a stack of plates or something instead of stepping forward and up, sometimes this helps create some control in managing the position of the pelvis. Option to sub: Single Leg Glute Bridge, Hip Thrusts, Air Squat, Goblet/DB Squat

TOES TO BAR/SIT UPS - These movements can put A LOT of pressure on the core and pelvic floor. Please consider risk vs.reward when deciding if this movement is right for you. If you feel confident with your core and pelvic floor health you can always try fewer reps to notice and manage any symptoms. You can also SUB: BIRTHFIT Functional Progressions (Choose any from 1-4), Ball Slams, KB Swings, Overhead Plate Hold/March, Palloff Press, BIRTHFIT Banded/Wallball Woodchop, Standing Cross Body Wallball Throws, Goblet Hold/Squat, or Waiter Walks.

BURPEES - No push up burpee, Elevated burpee, Step back/forward burpee, Air Squat + Elevated Push Up, Table Top (all fours position) + Air Squat, Ball Slams, KB Swings, Farmer/Goblet march, Glute Bridges, Sumo Deadlift High Pull

BOX JUMP - This is going to be all about managing the impact and pressure to your core and pelvic floor. You can ALWAYS substitute Step Ups if you want zero impact or even KB Swings if you want to get a little more explosive with your hips. For pregnant mamas, please remember that if you are unsure if you can complete the movement because of balance, strength, or coordination it may not be worth the risk of potentially falling or busting up your shins! For mamas further along in their Postpartum you can try a lower height of box to practice that two foot take off and landing without the extra impact. Focus on your breath and posture throughout the movement and do less reps if that helps you concentrate on good technique and awareness in your body.

Score: Total Time
Goal: Under 12 Min - If you finish under 10 min - do a 5th round!

For this workout you will cycle through 4 times!

For the step ups in this workout we want you to choose a height that is challenging but that you feel comfortable stepping up and down. Make sure you place your whole foot on what you will be stepping on and drive out of the heel to stand. Don't allow the working knee to cave in. Alternate feet with each step up so you end up doing 6 per leg per set.

For the sit ups we would like to see you touch the ground behind your head at the bottom - come up and touch your toes at the top. If you are unable to do this you may choose to use a bit of assistance like a band to help you come all of the way up and lower under control.

If you are unable to do sit ups at this time you may choose to sub slam balls, or dead bugs!

For the no push up burpees you will place your hands on the ground. Jump or step your feet out - come to the top of a push up position. Jump or step the feet in and jump and clap.

You may also do these elevated!

First minute is a freebie! You don't have to start doing the deadlifts on the minute until your second minute. Do not try to bank as many reps as you can in the first minute! Make sure you choose a load and variation of the deadlift that you can complete the 6 reps in under 20 seconds.

For the wall ball reps you will hold the ball at your chest with the elbows tucked in. Feet are under the shoulders with the heels down. Chest up and belly tight! Reach the butt back and down. Keep the heels down. Drive the knees out. Get the butt lower than the knees at the bottom. No plopping or rounding! Keep that chest up! Drive through the legs and use that power to help you throw the ball!

When you catch it. Catch first and then squat.

For the wall balls the ideal target height is roughly 9-10', but whatever you can make work is fine! If you have low ceilings or no ball you can sub lightweight thrusters. We prefer either a single heavy dumbbell (like the video) or 2 light dumbbells/bar.

For the single leg deadlift you will hold a dumbbell in each hand. Shift your weight into one foot and raise the other foot off the floor behind you.

Fight not to twist. Allow a slight bend in the knee as you hinge forward at the hip and touch one head of the dumbbells to the floor. Keep the back flat and belly tight and squeeze the butt to stand up. You can always modify to a single dumbbell or even regular deadlifts if you need to.

Remember 6 reps = 3 on each leg.

10 Rounds

10 Goblet Squat

Idea weight for Men: 30-55# Single KB/DB - or - pair of lighter dumbbells
Idea weight for Women: 12-30# Single KB/DB - or - pair of lighter dumbbells

Score: Total Time
Goal: Under 15 Min

For this workout you may choose to use the same weight for both movements or a different weight for each. You may even choose to do the squats unweighted if necessary.

For the goblet squat you will hold the weight at your chest if using a single kb/db. If you only have a pair of lighter dumbbells you will hold one in each hand at the shoulders.

Feet are shoulder width apart with the heels down. Lift the chest and tighten the belly. Reach the butt back and down as you drive the knees out. Keep the heels down and the belly tight/chest lifted.

Ideally you will get your butt lower than your knees at the bottom with the heels down, chest up, and knees out. If you tend to collapse or plop - OR if you have any pain in that low position the first step would be to lower or ditch the weight.

From there if you still need help you may choose to use something as a counter balance or squat to a higher target. If you choose either of these options just make sure that you still focus on heels down, knees out and chest up.

For the deadlifts you will either have a single weight between the feet or a lighter weight in each hand on the outside of the feet. Heels are down knees are bent slightly. Chest is up with belly tight and butt back. To stand dig the heels into the ground while liftign the chest. Squeeze the butt at the top.

Don't be sloppy with the lowering. Reach the butt back, bend the knees and keep the chest up and belly tight!

The renegade devil is a renegade row into a devil press. So 1 rep = Push Up + Row Right + Row Left + Double Dumbbell Snatch. Set up in a plank position with hands on dumbbells about shoulder width apart. Keep a tight body position in the push up by squeezing your butt, quads, and abs. Go to your knees if you need to. Chest and thighs touch the ground at the bottom, fully extend your arms at the top.

Then, hold the plank position and pull your right elbow up and back until the DB touches your ribcage. Plant the right DB down and repeat the row with the left arm. Try to avoid twisting too much. Keep your hips in line with your knees and shoulders. Lower the knees to the floor if you need to.

Step your feet up outside and slightly behind the dumbbells. Keep your belly tight and back flat as you lower your hips and raise your chest. Hike the dumbbells high in between your legs like a football then stand up hard and fast. Use the power from your legs and hips to guide the DBs overhead until arms fully extend overhead. Control the descent and keep the back flat as you set up for the next rep!

Dumbbell Lungesters begin with the dumbbells on the shoulders with the elbows in front. You may perform the lunges portion as reverse stepping or forward stepping. Make sure you take a long enough step that your front heel stays down when your back knee LIGHTLY touches the ground. Don't allow the forward knee to cave in. Keep the belly tight and chest up. You will perform a lunge on each side.

MAMA MODIFICATIONS

RENEGADE DEVIL - If you feel a lot of pressure in your belly or pelvic floor in the plank position or hopping forward/back, you can step back/forward to a table top or low bear pose and sub a shoulder tap instead of row. You could skip step back to a table top or low bear and skip the row. You can also use less weight. If you have to modify the movement too much you may want to sub KB Swings, Sled Push/Pull, Farmer Carry, or Ball Slams so that you can keep moving and keep the heart rate up!

LUNGESTERS - If you have any pubic symphysis pain or SPD focus on keeping your pelvis neutral and your hips level. You could always do lighter weight, smaller step/less range of motion, or step up or forward instead of step back in the lunge lunge. You can also try stepping laterally onto a stack of plates or something instead of stepping back or up, sometimes this helps create some control in managing the position of the pelvis. Option to sub: Thrusters, Weighted Step Ups, Weighted Lateral Step Ups, Lunge + Lunge + Air Squat, Goblet/DB Squat

You could always do lighter weight, smaller step/less range of motion, or step up or forward instead of step back in the lunge lunge. You can hold the weight in the front rack or by your side like a farmer carry. You can also goblet squat try stepping laterally onto a stack of plates or something instead of stepping back or up, sometimes this helps create some control in managing the position of the pelvis. Feel free to sub a squat or goblet squat for the lunges.

SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT - This can be such a great movement for mamas! Focus on good posture, breathing mechanics, and midline stability. If you're pregnant and balance is a struggle because of changes on center or gravity, feel free to sub Sumo Deadlifts!

BICYCLE CRUNCHES - Any of the BIRTHFIT Functional Progressions (1-4) would be great here (visit their Youtube Library for tutorials)! I especially love the Banded Crossover version of Functional Progression 1, BIRTHFIT Dumbbell Windmill, and the BIRTHFIT Banded Woodchop.

NO RX or RX+ weight - use the bag you've got.
Suggested weight range:
Men: 50-65#
Women: 25-45#

Score: Total Time
Goal: 25 Min or Less

START WITH HOP OVERS IN THE FIRST MINUTE!

This will be a long one and it's just good old fashioned WORK. Set a manageable target of push up-drags and sandbag burpees that you can get in each minute and commit to it!

For the hop overs you will stand next to your bad and hop laterally over the narrow side. You may also do a lateral shuffle. Think fast toe taps on the bag as you step laterally on and over to the other side.

For the push up and lateral drag you will start in a plank position with your bag just to the outside your right hand. First you will do a push up, then with your left hand you will reach under and across and drag the bag to the left side of our body. Keep the belly tight and butt down. Do another push up then reach under and across with your right hand and drag the bag back to the right side of your body. If you can't quite get the bag all he way across a little plank side step so you can start the next pull in a good position. One push up + on drag = 1 rep.

For the sandbag burpees the bag will start right in front of your feet. Plant your hands on the bag a bit wider than shoulder width apart. Step or jump your feet back to a plank position and lower your chest to the bag, knees/thighs to the floor. Press back up to straight arms and step or jump your feet back in. Grab hold of the overhand handles, bend your knees and lift your chest up. Keep the heels down. With your back flat and belly tight, stand up with the sandbag by driving through the heels and lifting the chest. Explode UP with the legs and hips. Shrug the shoulders. Pull the elbow high and outside. Then PUNCH the sandbag to lock out finishing with the biceps by the ear!

Score is heaviest single.

For the sumo deadlift you will have a stance that is slightly wider than your squat stance. Toes are turned out slightly. Keep the heels down and push the knees OUT. Hinge at the hips and bend the knees slightly. Keep the chest lifted and grip the bar with the hands inside the legs with the arms straight. To lift the bar think about driving the heels down and knees out. Lift the chest and pull the bar into the body. Keep the arms long and straight. Stand completely by squeezing the cheeks at the top.

Lower the bar under control by reaching the butt back and hinging at the hips. Keep the bar pulled into the body and keep the arms straight. No excessive bouncing at the bottom.

If this is a new movement for you - come to a complete stop at the bottom and re-set.

Also, if this is new you may not be able to go as heavy at first as your normal deadlift. Find the weights for these that are right for you. You can increase each time or stay the same across the sets of 3 and then increase for the singles. Base it off how you are feeling and moving.

10 Min AMRAP
(As Many Reps as Possible)
Odd Object Front Squats

Every Minute on the Minute

5 Odd Object Over the Shoulder

No RX or anything, use what you've got. Ideal weights for Men would be over 60#. Ideal weight for women would be around 40# +.

This could be a sandbag. Heavy D-Ball. Bag of Dog Food. Etc.For this one the score is the number of front squats. You will start the first minute doing the odd object front squats for a full minute first. When the clock hits one minute - you will complete 5 of the odd object over the shoulder reps. The object over the shoulder reps do not count toward your score!

Once you have completed your 5 over the shoulder reps you will go back into your front squats. When the clock hits 2 min - 5 over the shoulder reps again. Repeat for 10 min.

For the object over the shoulder make sure you pick up with a solid back position, knees bent and heels down. Stand up fast and use the hips to help you hoist the weight up and over the shoulder.

For the front squats you will hold the weight at the chest and perform a squat. Reach the butt back and down. Heels down. Knees out. Get the butt lower than the knees at the bottom and keep the chest up! Stand all of the way up at the top!

 
GYMNASTICS | WEEK 38
 

Warm Up
2 Rounds


10 Banded Pass Throughs
30 Seconds Alternating Wrist Stretches
10 Scapular Push-Ups
10 Forward to Backward Kicks (Right)
10 Forward to Backward Kicks (Left)Banded Pass Throughs:

1. Begin standing with your feet together, quads squeezed, and glutes engaged. Round your hips under (think of yourself as a dog with its tail between its legs) to ‘turn on’ your core. Practicing this total body tension from your warm-up is going to transfer into higher level skills.
2. Grip your band (any thickness) in a wide set up for the first few reps. Usually near the ends.
3. Using straight arms, lift the band overhead and backwards, until it hits the back of your glutes.
4. Hold to maximize the stretch.
5. Return to your front starting position by repeating the same motion forward.
6. As you get comfortable, begin walking your hands in to a more narrow grip for increased difficulty.

Alternating Wrist Stretches

1. Begin on the floor, sitting on your heels with your knees together.
2. With your fingers facing forward and elbows locked out, press your palms into the ground, and shift your shoulders back and forth over your hands, hinging at the wrist. Both palms should remain in contact with the ground for each rep.
3. Turn your hands 180 degrees until the face backwards (towards your body), and shift your shoulders back and forth over your hands, hinging at the wrists.
4. Next, re-set your hands on the floor, and turn your fingers in, until they face each other. Shift from side to side, fully over each hand, hinging at the wrist.
5. Turn your hands out, until your fingers face away from each other. Shift from side to side, fully over each hand, hinging at the wrist.
6. Repeat all variations with your palms facing up (back of the hands to the ground.)

Forward to Backward Kicks

1. Begin standing on both feet, grabbing a sturdy object for support 1. Begin standing on both feet, grabbing a sturdy object for support with your left hand (I recommend the post of a rig).
2. Extend your left arm directly out to the side, keeping it parallel to the floor for the entire set.
3. Keeping a straight leg, lift your right foot up in the air as high as possible.
4. Once you reach your full range of motion, drive the heel backward, using momentum to swing your eft leg behind you.
5. Continue swinging your right leg front to back, focusing on keep both legs locked out at all times. 6. Repeat steps for the right side.

EMOM 12 Min
(Every Minute on the Minute for 12 Minutes)


Min 1: 5 Candlestick Roll + Broad Jump
Min 2: 30 Seconds Max Handstand Walk Practice

Subs and Modifications
Roll with bent knees

Handstand shoulder taps on the wall / Box assisted shoulder tapsCandlestick Roll to Broad Jump

1. Begin standing with both feet together, arms by your sides, in front of your box.
2. Sit back to the floor, setting your glutes close to your heels.
3. As you roll backwards, extend your arms overhead, pressing them into the floor behind you, and lift your toes to the ceiling. Legs are straight and glutes squeezed (make sure your hips are fully open).
4. Using the momentum from rolling down, pull your heels as close to your glutes as possible, and shift your chest forward, over your toes to help stand.
5. As you stand up, swing your arms and do one, max effort broad jump. The goal is to be as explosive as possible, jumping as far as you can.

Max Handstand Walk

1. Kick-up to a handstand hold, making sure to keep a tight, stacked body position: Your body should be in one line, with your ankles over your hips, hips over your shoulders, and shoulders over your wrists.
2. Allow your body to tip over, producing the forward momentum needed to start walking your hands.
3. Make sure to keep your hips and glutes set over your finger tips for the walk (this will make sure you continue moving forward, rather than falling backwards).
4. To step, plant each hand and extend through the shoulder, getting as tall as possible. It’s this shoulder extension that will naturally shift your bodyweight from side to side, making your handstand walk much easier.

Skill Focus: Spacial Awareness

5 Rounds for Quality
1 x 2 Connected Forward Rolls
3 x Jump Full Turn (Take Off From Single Right Leg)
3 x Jump Full Turn (Take Off From Single Left Leg)
30 Seconds Headstand Hold

Subs and Modifications:
Single forward roll
Jump full turn taking off both feet
Tucked headstand hold

You can put a time on this for a score - but it really doesn't matter.

Connected Forward Rolls

1. Begin standing with your feet hip width apart, arms by your sides
2. Squat down to the floor, and set your hands by your feet
3. Lift your glutes into the air as high as possible
4. Tuck your chin and stare at your belly button for the entire rotations
5. Allow your elbows to gradually bend as you tip forward and roll
6. To stand, pull your heels towards your glutes and sit-up, shifting your shoulders over the front of your toes
7. Extend up, into a quarter squat
8. Move immediately into a second roll
9. These connected rolls will ideally be in a row, but if you feel yourself getting too dizzy, you can slow the connection down

Jump Full Turn

1. Begin standing on your right leg, with the left leg bent and off the floor, toes by the inside of your right ankle
2. Extend your arms in front of you, at a 90 degree angle: Left arm will be directly forward, right arm will be pointed towards the right side
3. Using your arms to generate power and lift, jump off your right foot, complete a full spin in the air, and land back on BOTH feet
4. Make sure to bend your knees upon landing, to help absorb the power

Headstand Hold

1. Begin by setting up into your tripod position— Your head and both hands will form the three points of an equilateral triangle (all sides are the same length) when set on the floor. Your head will be the top, while your hands will form the base. Hands should be slightly wider than shoulder width distance. Only the top of your head should be in contact with the floor.
2. Slightly angle your fingers out to approximately 45 degrees. This will make it easier to balance and keep stability as we move the legs.
3. Brace the neck by pushing the hands into the floor (you need to feel your triceps light up), and pulling your shoulders towards the ceiling.
4. With your tripod position set, lift your hips into the air and come up onto your toes (legs will be straight at this point).
5. Slowly Walk your toes forward, shifting your hips over the center of your tripod position.
6. Pull your first knee forward, setting it on the back of your tricep.
7. Keeping the core and neck braced, pull the second knee forward, setting it on the back of the tricep.
8. Slowly lift your knees off your arms, and bring them together in front to create the tucked position.
9. Using the core, continue to lift the hips and straighten the legs, until they are vertical.
10. NOTE: You should never be completely vertical in headstands, because you do not want all of your bodyweight set over your head and neck. Instead, form a hollowed position, where your hips and glutes are centered over the middle of your tripod.

 
SOGO | WEEK 38
 

Part 1:
3 Sets
10-15 Pull Ups
10-15 Shoulder Press

This workout has 3 parts.

Rest one minute after each section. Modify as needed to keep all movements strict.Ideally the Pull Ups are performed strict. Choose a band or ring row to allow you to get at least 10 strict reps.

For the Shoulder Presses, use the same load for all 3 sets. Use dumbbells or a barbell. Make sure you keep your belly tight and don't over-arch your back!

Part 2:
3 Sets
15-20 Bent Over Rows
15-20 Push UpsMove slow on the bent over rows to keep from using your hips. Instead, focus on squeezing your lats to pull the bar (or dumbbells) to your chest.

Focus on a rigid body position in the push ups and a full range of motion aka chest/thigh contact in the bottom. Feel free to elevate your hands or go from the knees to get at least 15 unbroken reps.

Part 3:
3 Sets
10-15 Upright Rows
10-15 DipsThe upright rows are performed standing up straight holding dumbbells or a barbell with a close grip (less than shoulder width) at your waist. Pull the load in a straight vertical line to just below your collarbone. Elbows should stay above the load and go wide as you lift.

For the dips, you can do rings, parallel bars, parallettes, banded, toe assisted, or between two boxes. Break 90 degrees at the elbow and lock those arms out at the top!

 
OLY | WEEK 38
 

Clean + Front Squat + Thruster (20 Min to Go Heavy )

As an unbroken complex:
Full Clean
Front Squat
Thruster

You will warm up and then put 20 min on the clock and try to find your heaviest set possible of the complex. Complex must be unbroken, which meand you must hold onto the bar for all 3 parts without dropping.

For the clean the bar will start on the ground. Feet are under the hips and hands are outside of the legs. Heels are down, knees are bent and there will be a hinge at the hips. Back is flat with the chest up. Arms are long and straight.

To lift the bar you will drive the heels into the ground as you lift the chest and pull the bar into the body. Once past the knees you will pick up speed. Keeping the arms straight stand up (jump) hard and fast. Shrug the shoulders. As the bar starts to travel up, pull the elbows high and outside to keep the bar close to the body. Pull YOURSELF DOWN under the bar. Bring the elbows around and through FAST as you pull down. You will land in a solid front squat with your heels down, knees out, butt lower than the knees, chest up, elbows high, belly tight! No plopping or rounding. Stand by driving the heels down and leading with the elbows.

Then you will perform a front squat. Elbows stay up. Belly stays tight. Reach the butt back and down to the bottom of the squat. Once again, stand.

For the thruster you will do ONE MORE front squat. This time as you stand out of the squat you will pick up speed. Almost jump with the bar to pop it off of the shoulders. Move the face out of the way. Press the bar straight up and lock out over the middle of the body with the biceps by the ear. Keep the belly tight!

then

3 x 1 Min Double Dumbbell Overhead Hold
Rest as needed between Sets

Score is the weight you used
(if you use 25# Dumbbells put 25# as your score not 50#)

Press those babies up there, get the biceps by the ears, keep the belly tight and HOLD for 1 min!!

No weight needed today!

Score: Total Number of Completed Rounds + Any Additional Reps
Goal: 10 Rounds +

Super simple one to get the week going you guys!

For the squats you will stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Make that you have your weight across your whole foot with your heels down. Stand tall. Lift your chest but tighten your belly. Reach your butt back and down, and keep your chest lifted.

Drive your knees out as you go back and down. Keep the heels on the ground! You can lift your hands in front of you for added balance.

Ideally you will get your butt lower than your knees at the bottom with your heels still down, knees out, and without plopping or collapsing.

If you have any issues going that low - like pain - you may try to hold onto a trx type band or the back of a chair for assistance. Just make sure that you stay BACK in the heels and that the knees go out!

You may also choose to squat to a target that is a bit higher as well!

For the one arm one leg v-ups you will lay on your back. Raise your hands up over your hands over your head. Lift one leg (keeping as straight as possible) and one arm (also straight). Bring your right hand to touch your left tow - then lower. Then bring your left hand to touch your right toe. Keep alternating. Each time you touch a hand to your toes it counts as a rep so you end up doing 4 per side per set.

You may also choose to swap out 8 full all of the way down, all of the way up sit ups.

If you are unable to do sit ups at this time consider subbing KB Swings, ball slams, or dead bugs!
