Put info for others in comments
Goal: Good movement

For the Arnold presses start standing with your dumbbells at chin level, palms facing you. As you press overhead, rotate your arms so your palms face out at the top. Keep your chest up but belly tight to avoid arching your back.

Waiter walks you will hold one DB in one hand in front of you with elbow at shoulder level and 90 degrees so your forearm is vertical. Stand up straight and walk slow. After 30 seconds, switch to the other arm.

For the lat to front raise, arms are straight the whole time. Raise your arms out to a T, then keep the DBs at shoulder level as you bring them together in front of you. Lower them down to your waist, then raise them up in front of you to shoulder height. Then, take them back out wide to a T and lower them back down to your side. That is 1 rep!

For the 90 degree lat raise, start with elbows along side your body, arms bent to 90 degrees. Keep this angle of your arms and raise your elbows out to the sides up to shoulder level then back down.

Single arm reverse fly, plant one hand and one knee on a bench, facing down. Opposite arm starts hanging straight down, elbow very slightly bent. Raise the DB out to the side so almost shoulder height. Keep the DB in line with the shoulder, arm 90 degrees to the body. Press you planted hand down hard and keep your belly super tight!

For the flys, lie face up on the bench with arms extended straight up in the air. Keep your belly tight, avoid arching your back as you lower your arms out wide. You can keep a very slight bend in your elbows. Return the DBs back to your starting position.

For the skull crushers keep the shoulders back and down and bend only from the elbow - bringing the bar or dumbbells close to your "skull". Really extend the elbow hard at the top!

For the wide grip push ups, take your hands out a good bit wider than shoulder width. Maintain a rigid plank position. Lower your chest and thighs to the floor. Keep everything tight and press straight back up until your arms are straight.

For the diamond push ups, place your hands together with thumbs and index fingers touching to form a diamond shape.

Score: Weight Used for Part 1-3
Goal: Make it all of the way through with at least 9-10 reps but not more than 12 of each movement.

The pump is real on this one. Definitely feel free to adjust the weight for the different curl and tricep variations.

Make sure all the movements are slow and controlled. Pause for 1 second on both ends of each rep. You can move faster during the 4 minute AMRAP but keep the movements strict.

Dumbbell curls will be performed together with palms facing up. Keep the DBs from swinging back behind you on the way down.

On the skull crushers elbow and shoulder stay in a line and the only movement comes from the elbow joint.

Hammer curls will be performed with palms facing each other. Touch one head of the dumbbell to your shoulder and keep your elbows tight to the body the whole time.

For standing tricep extensions, with a dumbbell in each hand, start with biceps by the ears, elbows bent to allow rear head of DB to touch the shoulder. Keep the biceps by the ears and straighten your arms overhead. As with all overhead movements, keep your belly tight!

For concentration curls, you'll be seated and go one arm at a time. Brace yourself by pushing the back of your upper arm into your inner thigh, keep that foot firmly planted so your leg doesn't move. Start with the arm straight and curl your palm up as close to your shoulder as you can. Concentrate on that bicep!

On the bent over tricep extensions, plant one hand and one shin on a bench, DB in the opposite hand. Start with forearm vertical, knuckles down. Keep your elbows in place and extend your arm back until it is straight.

Diamond push ups your thumbs and index fingers will be touching to ensure a close hand position.

Chin ups you'll have an underhand/palm up grip. You can also do this with TRX/Ring or bar in rack rows.

 
SOGO | WEEK 28
 

Part 1
100 Strict Press
Every time you break: 15 V-Ups

Goal is to do this in as few sets as possible. Pick something that you can do at least 15 with each time.

Make sure you avoid overextending or leaning back! Keep the belly tight and lower the weight with the elbows in front each time to avoid crashing into your collar bone. Come to complete lock out at the top with the biceps by the ears and the weight over the middle of your body!

Can be done with barbell or dumbbells.

Part 2 (Tricep Pump)
1 Round ONLY
Max Reps Skull Crusher
into
Max Reps Rolling Tricep Extension
into
Max Reps Bench Press

For this one you are looking for a weight that you can get at least 10-15 skull crushers before you have to switch.

On the skull crushers you will lie flat on your back either on the ground, a box, or bench with the arms extended over the chest. The elbow and shoulder stay in a line and the only movement comes from the elbow joint. Lower under control and fire up!

On the rolling tricep extension: there will be a slight extension of the shoulder followed by a closing then feeding into a straightening of the elbow. See demo!

You will then use the same weight and rep it out to failure!

 
SOGO | Week 27
 

Part 1 - Back and Bis!
4 Rounds NOT FOR TIME
Max Set of Strict Pull Ups
As soon as you drop off
10 Barbell or Dumbbell Bent Over Rows

Rest as needed between sets

Score is total number of strict pull ups. (Do NOT go for a score with the scaled options!!!)If you choose the option to do this workout without a scale for the pull ups - you should be able to do a minimum of 5 Strict Pull Ups each time.

For these pull ups - they should be strict - with complete extension of the armpit and elbow at the bottom - chin over the bar at the top. They need to be strict - but that doesn't mean super slow or anything.

Scaling options are either 7 - 10 banded strict pull ups - or 7-10 jump up with a slow negative. Do not exceed those numbers at least for this first session. We want to control the soreness.

As soon as you either can no longer do the regular pull ups - or you complete your 7-10 reps of scaled - you will come over and do either barbell bent over rows or dumbbell bent over rows.

For the barbell you will load it up for men somewhere between 115-185# depending on strength and experience. Ladies between 75-125#. These should be difficult but nowhere near failure and no need to break.

You will keep the back flat and pull the bar to the chest - just below the nipple. Keep the gaze up slightly and belly tight. Pull the elbows back.

If you choose the dumbbell rows - you will not go as heavy - but will do 3 second slow negatives. Men between 50-70# DBs and Women between 30-50# DBs.

Part 2 - Chest and Tris
4 Rounds NOT FOR TIME

Max Dumbbell or Barbell Bench
straight into
Max Set Regular Push Ups

Rest as needed between sets

Score is total number from both movements.

RX Men: 115# Bench
RX Women: 65# Bench

RX + Men: 135#+
RX + Women: 85# +If you can not complete at least 8-10 bench reps with those weights (for the first round at least) then scale it down a bit. We also don't want you getting more than 15 per round or so either.

Same for the push ups. If you can't get at least 8-10 - go to the knees.

This is not a "girl" push up - it is a scale push up that will lower the amount of your body weight you are pushing up and allow you to do more reps! That is the POINT of this session.

For the bench reps the hands should not be too wide. Just outside the shoulders. Keep the butt on the bench and pull the shoulder blades back and down as you unrack the bar. Do NOT go to failure - especially if you do not have a spot! Be smart. Come all of the way down and lock out completely for each rep!

Once you can no longer complete any of those you will move on to the push ups.

No rest between movements.

Rest as needed between rounds.

For both - NO sagging or snaking!

Good Luck!

Score is weight used for single arm rows.For the flys you will sit on the edge of a bench or box. Lean forward slightly by hinging at the hip. You will pull the arms back (almost like wings) with a slight bend in the elbow. Bring the arms roughly parallel to the ground then lower back to your sides. You should not be using a ton of momentum or jerking on the way up or down.

For the bent over row you will do one side at a time. You will lean on the bench or box, or even agains the wall or whatever. You will pull the elbow back and the dumbbell toward the rib cage. Make sure to bring all of the way to straight at the bottom of each rep.

SOGO | Week 24

Part 1 -
3-5 Rounds

Max Strict Chin Ups
Max Banded Chin Ups

Rest 3 Min Between Rounds

If you are unable to do strict chin ups - no problem.  Scale to 5 Sets of 7 jump and slow lower chin ups.

Even if you can only get like 2-3 strict chin ups per round.  Still do that part.
Choose a band that helps, but not TOO much.  We don't want you getting more than like 10-12 more reps with the band each time.

If you don't have a band you can do the strict chin ups and then a set of kipping regular pull ups OR you can do rows to failure.

Part 2-
3-5 Rounds

Max Strict Dips

Rest 3 Min between roundsYou can do the dips on a stationary dip station or on the rings.  If you have neither you can try setting up 2 boxes, chairs, your counter tops -whatever.

If you are unable to do any strict dips.  You may sub 5 rounds of 7 jump and slow lower, followed by the max skull crushers.

Choose a weight for the skull crushers that won't allow you to get more than 10-15 reps after the dips.  So light, but not insanely light.

For the dips, make sure you get the shoulder below the elbow at the bottom and complete lockout at the top!

When the clock hits 20 seconds you will "rest" in the lockout position at the top.
Repeat this 8 times or for a total of 4 min.
For each rep you must touch the shoulder at the bottom and get completely locked out with the bar over your head at the top!
Keep the ribs down and fight the urge to overarch!

SOGO | Week 23

3 - 4 Rounds

1 Min DB Floor Press
1 Min DB Floor Hammer Press
1 Min Diamond Push up
Rest 2 Min Between Rounds

Score= Weight used for the Presses

Goal= 12-20+ Reps of Each Per RoundFor the DB Floor Press you will basically be doing bench press but laying on the ground.  Make sure you lower under control and PLEASE don't use the ground to help you bounce back up.  The whole point is starting from a dead stop in that sticky spot.  Lock out a the top completely each time.

The DB Floor Hammer Press is the same idea except you will turn the wrists in throughout the full movement - at the bottom, during the press, and at the top.

A diamond push up is simply a push up with your hands close together under your chest.  When you lower down keep your body rigid.  No worming or snaking.  Touch your chest to your hands and press to lock out at the top.

If you are unable to get at least 10-12 reps of any of these movements lower the weight - or for the push ups - go to the knees.

Metcon (No Measure)

No Score - just get it done!The dips may be on rings, stationary dip station, high parallettes, between two boxes, or even off the front of a bench.

Make sure you lower until your shoulder is lower than your elbows at the bottom with the elbows kept back and in (not flaring out).  Press to complete lock out at the top.

For the skull crushers you will lay on your back and press the weight up over the chest to start.  Moving only at the elbow you will lower the weight to your forehead under control then press back up to lock out at the top.

You may also use a dumbbell or dumbbells if a plate in unavailable.

SOGO | Week 21

4 Rounds
(Not for Time)

15 Plate Tricep Extensions
10 Around the Worlds
15 Plate Tricep Extensions
10 Around the Worlds (other direction)

Rest 2-3 Min Between Rounds

Score - Weight Used for Plate ExtensionThe Plate Tricep Extension is just as it sounds.  Standing you will hold the plate over head and lower it by bending your elbows only behind your head.  Then by extending at the elbow press back up to lock out.  Keep your belly tight and biceps by your ears throughout.

If you don't have a plate or would prefer doing these with dumbbells - go for it!

For the Around the Worlds, start with the plate at your chest.  Keep the belly tight and elbows bent and basically make a big circle around and behind your head and back to your chest.  Keep the belly tight and butt squeezed.  Do all reps one direction and then on the second set you can go the other way.

These can also be done with a single KB or DB.  Even a medicine ball.

Also - Make sure that you start with a straight arm at the bottom each time and bring the curl all of the way up.

If you need to go lighter for the hammer curls - that is fine.

SOGO | Week 22

4-5 Rounds (Not for Time)
10-15 Strict Pull Ups

RX Men/Women: Choose a weight for the pull overs and rows that you can get at least 10 but over 15 is a stretch.

Score is dumbbell row weightFor the strict pull ups - if you cannot do 10 in 2 sets or less you may do banded strict pull ups or a jump and slow lower!

For the supine rows- you may do these on the rings or a bar in the rack.  Either way make sure you are starting with a straight arm and bringing your chest all of the way up to touch.

The more parallel to the ground you are - the more difficult these reps will be.

The pull overs may be done with a bar or a dumbbell - even a plate.  Lay across the bench in a position that allows you to open all of the way up with the weight over your head and behind you with a pretty straight arm.  Use your lats (your WINGS) to pull the weight back up.  Fight wanting to use the arms!

For the dumbbell rows you will do one side at a time.  Lean agains the bench or even a wall for support.  Let the dumbbell hang down and then pull it into your ribcage with the elbow going back!

Lat Raise
Shoulder Press

(So that means 10 Lat Pull Down, 10 Shoulder Press.  9 Lat Raise - 9 Shoulder Press...)

You will probably want to use lighter dumbbells for the lat raises than the shoulder press - but if you want a good burn - go light for both and see how far you can get with out breaking (don't get sloppy).

Not putting a score for this one.  Quality over Time or weight.

SOGO | Week 19

4 Rounds
Not for Time

10 Behind the Neck Press
10 Shoulder Press (from front)
10 Front Raise
10 Upright Rows

No Rest between movements so choose a weight that you can go through the whole thing.  It should be pretty light.

Rest 3-4 Min between sets

For this you may do it with a bar or with dumbbells.  If you are doing it with a dumbbells you will just do 20 press instead of 10 behind and 10 in front.

For the behind the neck press you may need to use a little wider than normal grip if your flexibility isn't great.  Keep the rib cage pulled down and make sure to keep the head out of the way as you press straight up.

For the press from the front the bar will start on the shoulder and you will press straight up by moving your head back this time (out of the way).

For both pressing movements come to a full lockout overhead and bring the bar all the way down to the shoulder at the bottom.

For the front raise you will allow a slight bend of the elbow.  A LITTLE assistance from the hip is allowable but this absolutely should not be a kb swing type movement.  Don't lean back!

For the upright row keep the shoulders pulled back and down.  You will have a narrow grip and as you pull up you will keep the bar close to the body (like you are zipping up your jacket) and the elbows will go high and outside.  Bring the bar up to the sternum or a little higher.

Do NOT get crazy overextended.  Keep the belly tight!

For the pike up on the box version you will start in the top of a push up position with the feet on a bench or box.  You will walk the hands back toward the box as the hips go up until you are in a 90 degree pike position at the top.  You will then walk yourself back out.

Max Supine Rows (Ring or Bar)

Rest 2-3 Min Between Rounds

Log weight used for the bench press.For the dummbell bench press, choose a weight that  you can definitely get 10 reps, but 15 will be challenging.  You may sub barbell bench if you do not have appropriate dumbbells.

Go immediately from there into the front raises.  You may do this with a barbell, a plate, or the dumbbells.  Keep the belly tight and allow a slight bend in the elbow.  Bring the weight to 90 degrees.

Immediately after your front raises you will do a max set  supine rows.  Choose an angle that will allow you to get at least 10 - but no more than like 25 or so.

PART 2

Superset #2
3-5 Rounds
10-15 Dips (Stationary, Ring, or Bench)
10-15 Standing Shoulder Press
10-15 Shrugs

Rest 2-3 Min Between Rounds

Log weight used for shoulder press.

Dip on what you've got.  You may even do bench dips if necessary and can add weight on the lap if you need to make it more difficult.  Make sure the shoulder gets past the elbow at the bottom and lock out completely at the top.

Go immediately into the shoulder press. For the shoulder press you may use barbell or dumbbells.  Choose a weight that will allow you to get 10 for sure, but 15 will be difficult.  Keep the belly tight and get the bar all the way overhead! (Not pressed out in front of you!)

Go immediately into the shrugs!  Shrugs may be done with a bar or with dumbbells!  Who doesn't love shrugs.
