Beginners should work with a very light weight, focusing on mechanics of the power snatch and OHS mobility.

Couch Stretch – 1:00 Each Leg 

Facing away from a wall in a kneeling position with hands on the floor for support, place one leg so that the shin bone is as close to the wall as possible (the respective foot will be in the air). Slowly bring the opposite foot up in front of you, and keep the heel down for a base of stability. Slowly bring your chest up as you imagine driving your waist forward, and hold at a position that provides a deep, but not overwhelming stretch. Focus on your breathing.

Medicine Ball Squat Hold – 1 Minute

Using the medicine ball to drive the athletes to the bottom of the squat, the goal here is to drive the knees out with the elbows while keeping the heels on the ground.

Stamina Squatting

Alternating On the Minute x 12 (6 Rounds):
Odd Minutes: 3 Front Squats
Even Minutes: 6 Back Squats
Barbell loaded at 61% of 1RM Front Squat (For Both Lifts)

Intermediate and beginners should focus on full squat depth, elbows and chest high at all times, explosion out of the bottom. Inability to get out of the bottom with power means the weight is too heavy for this exercise.



1000m Row

50 Thrusters (45/35)

30 Pull ups

Beg: 800m Row, 30 Thrusters(35/15), 20 Ring Rows


Wednesday - Regular Morning Classes - Afternoon - Hoover 4:30 Only - Jasper 4:00 PM Only

Warm Up

Partner Rowling

1000 meters for time split between two partners. 5 rounds each on the rower, looking to land exactly on 100 meter intervals until the screen says 1000 meters. There will be a penalty for the partner who gets off the rower for every meter they are under or over the 100 meter interval. For example, if they land at 97 or 103, penalty is 3 burpees. Partner getting on the rower must wait until their partner completing the penalty is finished before they begin rowing. They can sit ready on the erg as they wait. We will cap this game at 7 minutes.

:30 Seconds

Active Spidermans 
Ankle Stretch 
Active Samson 
Pigeon Pose 
Air Squats 
Wide Stance Side Lunge


“2k Test”

For Time: 
Row 2,000 Meters

Partner up. 1 athlete rows 2K. Then, the next athlete rows 2K.

The 2k Row is an incredible test of fitness, it helps athletes gauge pacing for future workouts that involve the erg. Often we talk about strategy in terms of pacing relative to 2k pace, so knowing that is valuable beyond today. Allotting time for two heats today. Having a buddy in your ear during this workout keeps you on track with holding specific paces.

Thursday - Closed - (Turkey AMRAP)

Friday - Closed
