Workout of the Day – Wednesday September 18th, 2019 “Bar Crawl”

By: 0

When we find ourselves struggling today, take a step back. Realize for just a moment, in the uncomfortable mess that we are in, that this is us… getting better. If we can re-wire ourselves to embrace those sweaty, painful, often embarrassing moments… we can go wherever we want to go.


Bar Crawl : Team (3 Rounds for reps)

Teams of 3


Bench Press

50 Bench Press (135/95)

50 Bench Press (155/105)

AMRAP Bench Press (185/135)

Rest 3 Minutes


50 Front Squat (135/95)

50 Front Squat (155/105)

AMRAP Front Squat (185/135)

Rest 3 Minutes


50 Deadlifts (185/135)

50 Deadlifts (225/155)

AMRAP Deadlifts (275/185)

The front squats come from the ground, not the rack.

Use one bar and change weights, but it is ok to have multiple if teammates are using different weights
Athletes should be able to complete the following reps at each barbell within the workout:

1st Bar: 7-10 Reps

2nd Bar: 5-7 Reps

3rd Bar: 3-5 Reps

A good break-up strategy is one that helps you avoid excess muscle fatigue early.

You’ll benefit from switching partner before the bar starts to slow down.

It’s not about the size of the set, rather the consistency of all sets

Capacity Builder: Wallballs (3 Rounds for reps)

3 Rounds:

2 Minute Window:

15/12 Calorie Row

10 Chest to Bar Pull-Ups

Max Wallballs (20/14)

Rest 30 Seconds Between Rounds
The goal is to move quickly through the row and chest to bars to give you plenty of time on the ball.

Choose a chest to bar number or variation that allows you to go unbroken each time.

We’re ideally completing this work in 1:20 or under, giving you around 40 seconds to accumulate as many wallballs as possible

Chest to Bar Pull-ups

Reduce Reps


Jumping Chest to Bar Pull-ups

Banded Chest to Bar Pull-ups

Bar Crawl: Individual (Time)

For Time:

27 Bench Press (135/95)

27 Deadlifts (185/135)

Rest 1 Minute

21 Bench Press (155/105)

21 Front Squats (155/105)

21 Deadlifts (225/155)

Rest 1 Minute

15 Bench Press (185/135)

15 Deadlifts (275/185)

Workout of the Day – Tuesday September 17th, 2019 “Fuller Circle- Take 2”

By: 0

Pain is mandatory, suffering is optional.


Fuller Circle (Time)

For Time:

800 M Run (50/35 Cal Assault Bike)

125 Double-Unders

2,000 Meter Row

125 Double-Unders

800 M Run (50/35 Cal Assault Bike)

The goal on both machines is to find an uncomfortable pace to hold throughout

While we do want to get uncomfortable, this should be a threshold pace that you can sustain throughout

Hone in on a pace and try to hold that number on the monitor


This is a good day to chip away at large sets

While we can aim to go big, this doesn’t mean these sets have to be unbroken

The goal is to maintain a similar rep scheme from the first 125 to the second 125

Dubs Scale options

Reduce Reps

250 Single Unders

3 Minute Time Cap

Strict HSPU Capacity Work (1x?)

In a 5 Minute Window:

20 Strict Handstand Push-ups

30 Dumbbell Power Snatches (50/35)

In Time Remaining: Max Strict Handstand Push-ups=Score

The buy-in reps do not count towards your score
Choose a strict handstand push-up variation/reps and a dumbbell snatch weight that allows you to complete the work in no more than 3:30 -4:00

This gives you 1:00-1:30 to accumulate your scored strict handstand push-ups

Choose a weight on the thruster that you can complete with 1 break max on each round

There is no need to stand to full extension on the burpee box jump overs
