Workout of the Day

2013 Regional Event #6

For time:
100 Double-unders
50 Handstand push-ups
40 Toes-to-bar
30 Shoulder to overhead with axle (160 / 100 lbs)
90 foot Walking lunge with axle in front rack (160 / 100 lbs)
*Time cap: 15 minutes

Notes–This was a lot of work to try to accomplish in 15 minutes! I rested today, but had I done this one, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have finished. Those darn handstand push-ups always slow me down! If you scaled correctly, you should have been able to make it to the shoulder to overhead at least. If you were stuck on any one movement for 5 minutes or more, you probably should have scaled. Just to re-emphasize, scaling movements is how we get stronger at them. We have to build a solid foundation if we ever want to get stronger and faster, and this means practicing the full range of motion and working at a weight where we can keep the intensity relatively high. If you are ever unsure of what you should be doing to get the most out of your workout, please don’t hesitate to ask a coach. Our goal is to challenge you and help you improve while keeping you safe. Great job today guys. Keep it up!
