We will spend the next 6 weeks working on our overhead squats. Part of that includes getting the bar from our shoulders to overhead, so we will practice techniques for that as well.
MONDAY, DEC 17
5 sets (from rack):
3 snatch grip push press + 2 overhead squat
Kicking off our overhead squat cycle by getting comfortable getting the barbell over our head from the rack. This week we will practice behind the neck push press first.
200m farmer carry (2 x 53/35)
If reaching the end of the 15 minutes, shorten the run/carry so time doesn’t run out when you are too far out on your run (i.e. run 200m or carry to the fence and back).
TUESDAY, DEC 18
Build in weight over the 10 sets
CompTrain Benchmark Workout “Joker”
1-10 toes to Bar
10-1 deadlift (225/135)
The sequence is as follows:
WEDNESDAY, DEC 19
1 mile run
Stagger start time by 10 minutes if needed. Athletes in subsequent heats may choose to do the hip extension finisher first.
GHD hip extension 4×15
Perform weighted (by holding a plate) if needed.
THURSDAY, DEC 20
Every 90 sec x 6:
1 clean + 2 push press
4 thrusters (155/105)
8 chest-to-bar pull-ups
12 burpees over barbell
Accumulate 5:00 plank hold
FRIDAY, DEC 21
3 rounds NFT:
5L/5R KB or DB windmill
Some focused effort today on windmills. These are great for opening your hips up and building shoulder stability. Challenge yourself, whether that be attempting to use a KB when you would normally just use a PVC pipe, or eventually building to heavy weight.
3 rounds for time:
80 double unders
40 wall balls (20/14)
20 DB box step overs (24/20, 2 x 50/35)*
*Hold DBs in hands hanging down at sides
