Front Rack Stretch – 1 Minute
Laying on your chest, place our elbows out in front, arms bent at 90 degrees. The goal is to close the gap between the armpits and the floor, which will stretch the lats, shoulders, and triceps.

Wrist Stretch – :45 Seconds
From hands and knees position, place palms on the ground with fingertips facing towards you. With elbows locked, actively rock back and forth through range of motion to feel the stretch in the wrist.

Ankle Stretch – :30 Seconds Each Side
Step one foot forward into a lunge. Keeping the heel on the ground, lean the bodyweight over the front leg, driving the knee forward over the toe. Actively move back and forth to stretch the calf muscles.

“Jump City”
For Time: 
1 Round:
800 Meter Run
80 Double Unders
21 Hang Power Cleans (135/95)

2 Rounds:
400 Meter Run
40 Double Unders
15 Hang Power Cleans (135/95)

3 Rounds:
200 Meter Run
20 Double Unders
9 Hang Power Cleans (135/95)

“Jump City” is completed for time with no breaks between the three different rep schemes. Athletes will complete one round of 800/80/21 before moving directly into two rounds of 400/40/15 and finally three rounds of 200/20/9. As the workout progresses, the change in rep scheme allows athletes to maintain a higher intensity as they fatigue. This is similar to the thought process of a 21-15-9 rep scheme. The weight on the barbell should be a load that athletes are confident complete 21+ repetitions unbroken when fresh. With roughly 80 hang power cleans today, choosing the correct barbell weight will be important. If unable to run, complete one of the following:

800 Meter Run = 1000/800 Meter Row
400 Meter Run = 500/400 Meter Row
200 Meter Run = 250/200 Meter Row

Couch Stretch – :30 Seconds Each Side
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.

Banded Walks
A couple of options here. If your gym is equipped with mini bands, have athletes place the band just below the knee. You may also double or triple loop a low tension band. Other option is to have athletes step on a medium tension band, with the inside edges of the band coming in contact with the outside edge of the foot. From here, looking to assume a quarter squat stance with the hips back and the knees driving out. Maintaining this position throughout, have athletes take 10 steps in each direction, followed by 10 squats. Repeating this for another 10 steps in each direction and 10 squats.

Back Squat

4 Rounds For Time:

Focus today is the squat. Athletes will complete back squats in the strength piece, building to something heavy for 5 or working at the same challenging weight across all sets. Within the workout, athletes will work through a triplet of air squats, AbMat sit-ups and bike. If short on machines, stagger by 2 minutes. If unable to Assault bike, complete one of the following:

20/15 Calorie Schwinn Bike

PVC Pass Throughs – 1 Minute
With hands wide and arms long, raise arms up and over the head until PVC touches behind you.

Warrior Squats – 1 Minute
With the barbell on the ground directly in front of you, squat down and place one hand on. Keeping that elbow locked out and your chest tall, reach with the opposite hand overhead, focusing on rotating the shoulders and upper back (thoracic). Look towards the fingertips, pause for a moment, and then change arms.

PVC Pass Throughs – :30 Seconds
Repeating this movement, aiming to go a touch more narrow this time around

PVC Overhead Squats – :30 Seconds
With elbows locked out overhead, squat to full depth with a pause in the bottom. Quality over speed here.

Power Snatch
Heavy Single

“Hot Water”
AMRAP 12:
250 Meter Row
15 Push-ups

Athletes will first build to a heavy single power snatch. “Heavy’ is relative for the day and prioritizes mechanics over load. Then a simple couplet today of rowing and push-ups. The big focus here is making sure push-ups look flawless. We can bring the number of reps down or elevate the hands onto a box or a bench to accomplish that. Similar to “Strict Nicole”, athletes can expect to have somewhere between 6-8 attempts on the push-ups. Ideally this is a variation that they can complete in 1-2 sets per round. The workout is scored and rounds + reps, with every 50 meters on the rowing counting as one rep. Therefore, 20 repetitions total per round.

Child’s Pose – :30 Seconds
With arms together and straight out front, have athletes sit back

Pigeon Pose – :30 Seconds Each Leg
From a pushup position, sweep one leg beneath your body. Let’s use the right as an example. With your right leg beneath your body, aim to adjust your shin so that it is perpendicular to your torso – in other words, horizontal in relation to where your torso is facing. Slowly imagine sinking your waist back and down to the floor as you feel the stretch in the outside of your hip.

Squat Hold – :30 Seconds
Assuming the bottom of the squat, the goal here is to drive the knees out with the elbows while keeping the heels on the ground.

“Hot Sauce”

Max Overhead Squats (115/80)

rest 3 minutes

AMRAP 3: 
12/9 Calorie Row
12 Lateral Erg Burpees
Max Overhead Squats (135/95)

Four 3-minute AMRAPs, all scored separately as total reps completed at each barbell. As the reps go down, the weights will increase. The weights should be loads that athletes are capable of completing at least 30, 25, 20, and 15 repetitions unbroken respectively when fresh.

Choosing the right weights matter a lot, but so does choosing the appropriate numbers on the row and burpees. We want athletes to get to each barbell with a minimum of :30 seconds left. This will likely only be an issue on the rounds of 21 and 18. Adjust the numbers as necessary to ensure each athlete gets reps in on the barbell. Reducing the rounds to 18-15-12-9 is an option.

The burpees are lateral jumping over the slide of the rower, with no need to stand to full extension at the top of each rep. If short on rowers, stagger heats on opposite 3-minute intervals.

Banded Shoulder Distraction – 1 Minute Each Side
Lace a light tension stretching band onto a pull-up bar, and with one hand wrapped inside, face the band and step away to create tension. Allow your torso to pitch forward and allow the arm to relax into the stretch. If your right hand is inside the band, take a small step back with your right foot, and slowly rotate your torso to the right. This will further open and stretch your lat.

Lat Activation – 10 Repetitions
Grab a PVC pipe and place it between the band just used for banded shoulder distractions. With the band centered on the pipe, athletes will grab just outside hip width and step back a touch. With straight arms, a tight belly, and shoulders back, athletes will pull the bar to tight to their body and hold for a three count. Performing 10 slow and controlled repetitions, allowing them to feel the lats working. The further back they stand, the more tension in the band.

“Strict Nicole”
AMRAP 20:
400 Meter Run
Max Strict Pull-ups

The CrossFit Benchmark workout “Nicole” is traditionally written as Max Kipping Pull-ups. Today, however, we will be looking to accumulate as many quality strict pull-ups as possible in the 20 minute window. When the clock runs out, the score is total strict pull-ups. This is an awesome opportunity for athletes to hold themselves to a strict movement standard and build some strength. In order the get the right stimulus, we are looking for athletes to complete at least 5-6 repetitions each attempt on the pull-up bar. Choosing a variation that allows for this many reps will get athletes the most bang for their buck. Once athletes drop from the pull-up bar or are unable to complete any more reps that meet the standard, they will complete a 400 meter run. The preferred sub for running today is a bike, as the row may negatively affect the pull-ups, although either will work. Numbers in teaching section.
