WOD: Wednesday

10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of:
Bench Press
Weighted Lunge (10 per leg, 9 per leg etc.)
*25 min cut off.

Tips: This workout is NOT for time – take your time and pick loads that are challenging. The aim is to go as heavy as possible but to remain unbroken throughout the sets. This should be achievable if you monitor your rest. The preference if you are going heavy in the lunge is to use a barbell in the back rack.

20 Kettlebell Swings (1 arm/Russian)

WOD: Friday

A. Pick the option that suits:
1. 30 muscle-ups for time. (tutorial video – here)
2. 30 muscle-ups for sets.
3. EMOM for 10 minute Muscle up(s) or Pull-up(s)
4. 5 x max reps pull-ups/spotted pull-ups. (tutorial video – here)
*all options have a 10 minute cut off.

B. Death by Burpees (increment a rep per minute)
*If you are good at burpees start at 5 reps.

Tips: Part A option 1 would be suitable for people who are confident in their muscle up ability and think they have a good shot at getting through 30 in 10 minutes. Option 2 is for people who have good MU mechanics and are looking to build the size of their sets. Option 3 would suit people who want to work a set volume in an interval format and option 4 is for people with limited or without pull-ups.

WOD: Thursday

A. Pendlay Row 5-5-5-5-5

B. Alternate exercises each minute for 5 rounds:
1. Weighted Step-ups 24/20″ (30 seconds)
2. T2B (30 seconds or 20 reps – whichever is first) (see tutorial – here)

Tip: Part A – After performing a couple of warm up sets of Pendlay Rows, make the call to start your first working set. The aim is to increment the weight on each set and end up with a 5 rep max. If you hit your max before the 5th set, drop back a bit and finish of the working sets.
Part B – The leg on the box for the step ups should do all the work – try to keep your torso upright and focus on driving through the heel of the leading leg.
