9/18 - Cyclopse

Skills: I suck at jump rope. I find it a stupid waste of my time, but only because I am bad at it and tend ot get frustrated easily. For the next few weeks I will be throwing in some jump rope drills to get you on your way to double under promised land. Short little workouts should take less than 5 minutes each.

Workout 1
Basic Bounce Step
Jump over rope 10 times and then stop
Reps: 10
Sets: 5
Rest: 60 sec or
less between sets

Workout 2
Alternate Foot
Count right foot
only and multiply
by 2.
Reps: 5
Sets: 5
Rest: 60 seconds
or less

AM - Crossfit

Goals: Core strength/ muscular endurance. As the WOD is very core intensive we can work more whole body lifts as a strength component. Also we have been working legs pretty hard this week and out hands should be recovering from the onslaught of bodyweight trial by fire last week. We will again be cleaning from the hang position as you get 80% of the benefit of a full clean without starting to cause the problems that are associated with going from the ground. Some college programs have their athletes clean for all 4 years from this position.

Tips: Weigh yourself daily at about the same time. If your goal is to loose weight make sure that you are not sheding more than about a pound a week. too much weight loss will result in a strength loss and we want to keep that to a minimum. If you are trying to gain weight we are looking to gain about .25 lbs a week. that will ensure that the weight is more muscle and not water weight.

  1. ( video to help drill rack shrug technique. This is where your power for the hand clean comes from. I suggest doing at least 25 of these at relatively low weight. i.e. the bar + 20
