WORKOUT OF THE DAY

043016

Context: Practice
Mobility: Shoulder (playlist video here)

Skill Practice Warm Up: Spend 10 min working on Bar Muscle up drills emphasizing the ‘glide kip’. Perform at least 4 sets of 3-5 reps. If still working on toes to bar, do the same trying to link 3-5 toes to bar each set.

Strength: 3-3-3-3-3 Shoulder Press (5 sets of 3 reps, increasing weight, max or above max by last set)
Super Set: 10-30s of hollow rocks between each set (use a progression that makes it hard and stay on the lower side of the time)

Metabolic Conditioning: “Smoke on the Water
For time.

500m row
10 strict shoulder press** (Advanced: 95lbs, Intermediate*: 65lbs, Novice: 45lbs)
400m row – 8 strict press (same)
300m row – 6 strict press (same)
200m row – 4 strict press (same)

**Must be picked up from the floor (no racks).  And – no “pushing” with the LEGS!

Scaling Guide: 6-11 minutes

Coaching Tips: The pace on the first row should be about 90% of your 500m best time. Break the first set of presses up so that you can catch your breath and let your legs rest a bit for the 400m.  If you can do the rest unbroken, great!  If not, try and break it up into even chunks (not 6 and 2, etc.). Make sure to take the time to keep the abs tight to prevent hyperextension of the lumbar or a soft midsection due to breathing.  These are ‘strict’ shoulder presses, so make sure you ‘no rep’ yourself if you use your legs at all.  Drop the bar, take a moment then finish with quality strict form!

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 15 dumbbell burpee clusters, 400m run with medball, 1 round

Farm To Table Is A Great Idea. It Also Might Be A Fairy Tale

Farm to table dining really is a great idea. Instead of shipping food across the country (or across countries in some cases), we should source it locally. This is good for the environment (lower carbon foot print), for the diner (our vegetables are tastier, because they ripened on the vine and…
