2.20.17 – 2.26.17

Monday: 2.20.17


5-3-1x Back squat
After a sufficient warm up, take 10 minutes or less to work up to the heaviest weight possible for each rep listed.  You’re allowed one retry per set.  If you miss the same rep count twice you’ll have a 0 for that particular set.  Record the sum of the weights used on successful sets.


7 Minute amrap of:
10x Power cleans 105/75#
5x Burpees over the bar


The weight on the cleans should be very light, modify appropriately.  If we have time, we’ll split into two heats so each person can have their own judge/counter.  This will feel a bit more like an Open workout so we can get some practice.

Tuesday: 2.21.17


Kettlebell snatch technique work
With the dumbbell-in-the-Open announcement we need to try to cover as many possibilities as we can.  Kettlebell snatches and overhead squats have both showed up in previous CrossFit competitions so we’ll be covering them today.


3 Rounds for time of:
15x Pull ups
10x Kettlebell squat snatch 55/35# (5 per arm alternating each rep)
400m Run


The kettlebell must touch the floor between each rep on the squat snatches.  They will be challenging so modify the weight and/or use a dumbbell instead.

Wednesday: 2.22.17


Every 4 minutes for 4 rounds (16 minutes total)
9x Handstand push ups
30x Unbroken double unders
30x American kettlebell swings 35/25#
12/9 Air bike cals


One round for time of:
9x Handstand push ups
30x Unbroken double unders
30x American kettlebell swings 35/25#
12/9 Air bike cals


Each of the first four rounds should be completed in less than 3:00.  If that’s not possible, modify the workout so it is. 

The kettlebell weight is intentionally light.  There are a lot throughout the workout (150, as a matter of fact) and we have the first 2017 Open workout in two days.  Make sure to choose a weight that isn’t going to leave you too wrecked.

500m Row
40x Ground to overhead 45/25# plate
