WOD for 26 October 2012

Happy Friday Fitness Friends! I’ve heard more than a few people talking about how sore they are this week. You have been working hard and that is awesome! Now, you should be working to get your recovery game up to speed :). Here are a few simple tips that can help reduce recovery time, thereby allowing you to keep training and being successful.

1. Stay hydrated! Drink water throughout the day, not just before or after workouts.

2. Eat protein. Your body needs protein to rebuild your muscles, tendons and ligaments. If you are training more than 3 times a week, you should be aiming for a minimum daily protein intake of at least .8 grams/lb of bodyweight. That means if you weigh 150lbs, you should consume 120 grams of protein throughout a any given day.

3. Use your roller. Spend 10 minutes a day on one spot, do a different spot every day. Start with your trouble spots, and keep going until you can roll pain-free. Also, stretch or do yoga, or in some way move your body outside the gym.

4. SLEEP. 6 hours a night does not cut it. We should all be sleep at least 8 hours a night, and you should REALLY try to sleep 10 hours at least once a week. I am as bad about this as anybody, and I know how hectic schedules can be, but excuses are only excuses, so MAKE THIS A PRIORITY. Work to develop your time management strategies so you can easily prioritize long, healthy nights of sleep, and use your improved health to be even more productive during the day. Seriously, try this next week. Plan to spend at least 8 hours in bed for one week, and let me know if you feel a difference in your attitude and physical well-being.

Alright enough about all that. We still have one more day of work to do, so get to it :).

Burgener Warmup

Strength

15 minutes practice of: Snatch off Plates

Bar should begin just above the knee.  Stack plates to this height. If you are feeling comfortable you may work up to a heavy single. Work on speed under the bar and hip turnover.If you cannot receive at full depth, modify to clean off blocks, or spend 15 minutes working on mobility to acheive your perfect squat.

1a) Back Squat: 10×2 @ 85%

1b) Bench Press: 10X2 @ 85%

WOD

2a) 3X2 1 Split Jerk + 1 Snatch Grip Behind the Neck Split Jerk @ 80% of above

2b) 3X5 Clean Pulls – heaviest possible (remember, these are just deadlift+shrug. Stand tall and drive your shoulders into your ears. Work on speed as the bar passes the knee, and aggressively driving the hips vertically.)

3) 3X100′ Sled Pull – heaviest possible

RUN 1 MILE FOR TIME (Alternatively, if it is raining, you may complete a 2000m row)

WOD for 24 October 2012

Warmup

x2 (run 1 lap, 15 air squats, 10 high box jumps, 15 hips bridge, 10 knees jumps)

Strength

1) Take 5 minutes to work up to a heavy Power Clean. Take between 5-10 quick reps, and find something that challenges you.

2a) 4X2 1 Hi-Hang Clean (squat) + 1 Clean (squat) @ 85% of above

2b) 4×5 1&1/4 Front Squats – heaviest possible (Settle to the bottom, bounce up 1/4 squat, return to the bottom, then drive out of the pocket and stand tall. There should be velocity and quickness on the bounce AND on the drive out of the hole as you stand completely.)

WOD

15 minute AMRAP of: ME/UB Pushups, ME/UB Double-Unders

Begin this piece with a ME set of pushups. When you fail (yes, go to complete failure) perform a max set of UB Double-Unders. Take enough time to get your breathing under control and allow your arms to flush. The goal is 5-7 total sets, Do not count a set of Double-Unders that is less than 10 UB.

Core Work

3X3 TGU (each arm) Load should be CHALLENGING, and I encourage you to experiment with an implement you are not familiar with. Try Kettlebells, Dumbbells and Barbells and see how each offers a different stimulus.
