WOD: Thursday

EMOM for 20 minutes:
1 Power Snatch
2 Snatch Balance
3 Overhead Squat
*The aim for this workout is to increment your weight four times across the 20 rounds. For rounds 1-5 use a load that you can move easily (about 50% of 1RM Snatch) and then add weight at rounds 6-10, 11-15 and 16-20. The last 5 rounds should be close to maximal with consideration given to the volume or work and movements used.

Post loads and rounds completed successfully to comments.

WOD: Wednesday

6 x 400m Run
*Aim not to deviate more than 10 seconds from your fastest time.
*Work:Rest = 1:1

Before you decide to make today a rest day have a think about the overall concept of what we’re training for – increased ability in a wide variety of disciplines. This means that we must workout short and long, light and heavy, inside and outside, in the cold and the heat and with a broad range of exercises.
Like it or not, running is one of the most effective ways to develop cardio vascular conditioning and represents a weakness in most peoples repertoire. So, ignore that little voice in your head that is telling you otherwise and get your running shoes on!

Tips: It’s likely that the load for your front squat is going to be limited by your clean – so when choosing your weight for the front squat consider how much weight you expect to be able to clean with the fatigue of the previous work under your belt.
