Bench Press- Find 1RM

Oooh kill em! Have a little fun with this and talk some trash, you too ladies!

WOD- Death by Burpees

-Increase by 2 each round starting with 2

In death by Burpees you will preform the work like an EMOM. The workout starts with two burpees the first minute, you rest until the next minute and hit four burpees that minute. You will climb the ladder until you cannot finish the prescribed reps within that minute.

Deadlifts- 3×10 AHAP

These will all be touch and go reps. Start between 50-60% of your best Deadlift and go up from there depending on how each set feels.

WOD- 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1

-HSPU
-Kettlebell Swings (24/16)

This is a high rep for HSPU which means it would be easy to hit failure with having the combo of Kettlebell swings with them. Choose a scale that appropriately fits you moving fast and close to unbroken. The swings are prescribed light so be sure to stay light and fast on those as well.

Split Jerk + Overhead Squat- 6×2 AHAP

This complex here will be to work on stability and flexibility while working on your technique in the split jerk. A coach will go over the technique for the overhead squat with a   close grip. This movement will be extremely difficult for some of you who lack the flexibility in the shoulders right now but getting as deep as possible will help increase mobility so do whatever weight your body allows.

WOD- 8 Min AMRAP

-16 One Arm KB Push Press (24/16)

-12 Box Jumps

Eight minutes isn’t too long for a workout so get after it a little bit. It definitely won’t hurt like yesterday did if you came. On the KB presses you have to do 8 reps on each arm so switch when you get to 8 reps. Choose a weight you can pretty much do unbroken so that you can stay moving the whole time instead of standing around looking beat up.

Back Squat- 3×5 @85%

Hitting some heavy sets of five today, it should be fun! Warm-up properly to 85% and hit 3 sets at that weight. These sets should be tough so make sure you rest about 2 minutes between sets.

WOD- 3 Rounds

-Run 400m
-10 Full Cleans (50/30)
-20 Push-ups

On this wod we want a pretty fast pace so pick a weight you can move quick. You don’t have to necessarily touch and go the reps but the weight fast. Also be sure to scale the push-ups if necessary to move fast as well.

Clean and Jerk- 4×1 @90% or more

WOD- 6 Min Amrap

-5 Push Press (60/40)
-10 Box Jumps (24/20)

Today we have a short little burner. It’s only did minutes long so you can move at a pretty fast pace. Choose a weight you can stay unbroken on for the push press and make sure to stay fast on the box jumps.

Push Press- 7×1 Heavy

We are going for some heavy singles on push press today. It is not necessarily a max out day because if you want to you could do all 7 sets at 95% if you wanted to really build some strength. But if the weight feels light as you warm up then go for a PR. Even if you PR you have to make sure that you compete 7 heavy sets.

WOD- EMOM 10 Min

-3 Squat Clean Thrusters (50/30)
-4 Burpees over the bar

Here is a fun one for you guys. Barbell with burpees gotta love it! You will choose a weight on the squat clean thruster where you can do 3 reps touch and go or else your burpees will suffer. You should try to compete each round as fast as possible so that you get more time to rest before the next minute rolls around.
