Announcements

Meet at Williams Field High School at 5:30am on Thursdays!
Please park across the street east of the school at the church.  We have permission to use the track as long as we do not park in the high school parking lot.

If you are unable to join us on Thursdays at 5:30am you can do this workout at the gym. Grab a friend and have a fun workout!

Running Workouts

If your goal is to improve in CrossFit or your overall fitness do these two running workouts we post each week in addition to your CrossFit Workouts. You will notice a huge difference in your workouts in class and overall fitness.

For the workouts we do each week you need to know you 1 Mile PR time and 400 Meter PR time.

We adapt workouts from Chris Hinshaw’s Aerobic Capacity program. The athletes that are completing these workouts are seeing huge improvements!

These workouts can be completed on the same day you do a CrossFit class or in place of the metcon. If you do both in the same day it is best if you have at least 4 hours of rest between workouts. For those that are super busy with life like most of us do your best!

Workout # 1

Warm Up 

Repeat 3 Times:

Run 100 Meters

Walk 200 Meters

then

Rest 3 Minutes

Run 200 Meters

Stretch/Drills

Your 100 meter interval pace should be equivalent to your 200m time. Your 200 meter interval time should be 2 seconds slower than your 200 meter time. Record your 400 meter finishing time and 200 meter split. Record where performed (track, open road, trail, out & back, etc.)

Warm up, but do not get fatigued. This is a max effort 400m to help us update future pacing.

If your goal is to improve your running/Spartan Races and run some races you need to throw in a long run each week. It is very important that you get this time on your feet no matter what your pace is. This run is something you will do in place of a CrossFit Workout.

Discuss your goal with me and I will help you come up with a plan. You can text or call me (Kris LeSueur) at (602) 430-9060

For those that are feeling ready to run a long run start with 30 to 45 Minutes.

Workout of the Day – Saturday July 27th, 2019 “Heartburn”

By: 0

Strength

Clean and Jerk

On the Minute x 7:

Min #1 – 7 Hang Squat Cleans + 1 Push Jerk

Min #2 – 6 Hang Squat Cleans + 2 Push Jerk

Min #3 – 5 Hang Squat Cleans + 3 Push Jerks

Min #4 – 4 Hang Squat Cleans + 4 Push Jerks

Min #5 – 3 Hang Squat Cleans + 5 Push Jerks

Min #6 – 2 Hang Squat Cleans + 6 Push Jerks

Min #7 – 1 Hang Squat Clean + 7 Push Jerks

Last week, we started with 53% of our estimated 1RM CJ. Aim is to beat that score today, knowing that we will be repeating this workout again in the future. A moderate increase of 2-4% is appropriate here with the larger picture in mind.

Metcon

Heartburn (Time)

1 Mile Run, directly into:

7 Rounds of the “Bergeron Beep Test”*

1 Round of “BBT”:

7 Thrusters (75/55)

7 Pull-Ups

7 Burpees

Workout of the Day – Friday July 26th, 2019 “Hopscotch”

By: 0

Strength

Muscle Snatch (5X3)

5 Sets of 3

Start at 40% of our estimated 1RM, and aim to build to a moderate for the day. This is a movement that will stay on the lighter side given it’s nature… building towards, but likely not exceeding, 55%.

Snatch (5X5)

On the Minute x 5:

5 “Touch and Go” Squat Snatches

Athlete’s choice on the loading, with the intention being that we hold the same weight across (and building in the next iteration). A good starting place to be in here is 60% of our estimated 1RM.

If we are *unable* to complete the OTMx5 with the same weight across, make a note to ourselves where we failed. It is far better to choose a load that is slightly too light, and make it, than choose one that is slightly too heavy, and not.

Metcon

Hop Scotch (Time)

5 Rounds:

10 Power Snatches

10 Box Jump Overs (24″/20″)

Barbell Pounds – 95/65

We are looking for a light load on the barbell. One that we can cycle for 21+ reps unbroken when fresh. We want this workout to be short, fast, and intense.
