WOD’s for the week of 5-18 to 5-22.

May 18, 2015

Gold- We have two weeks remaining in the cycle. Your primary lift sets drop and become peak focused,  meaning that somewhere in your 3 sets of 3 reps you are looking to hit the heaviest weight you can.  You are no longer concerned with total poundage.  Your posted score (our new scoreboards should be ready by monday evening) is your heaviest successfully completed set.  So if your sets go 115×3, 135×3 and 145×2  your score is 135.

Your accessory work becomes more important and there are now 2 accessory actions instead of just one.  Although these are NOT scored, your intensity here should be very high.

Monday- Primary  Pullup 3×3 for peak.  Accessory A) Bent row 3×5.  B)Standing Barbell Bicep Curl 3×8.  Work- For Time- Run 800 M, 50 Snatches at 95/65, Run 800 M.

Tuesday- Primary Squat 3×3 for peak.  Accessory A) Squat 3×2 with a 2 second pause at below Parallel.  B)GHD Back Extension 3×5  Work- 5RFT 30 doubles, 15 grasshoppers.

Wednesday- Primary  Bench press 3×3 for peak.  Accessory A) Top 1/2 Bench Press 3×5 B) Ring Pushups 3×5.  Partner add load.  Work- GRACE –  30 Clean and jerks (ground to overhead) for time.  135/95.

Thursday- Primary Shoulder Press 3×3 for peak.  Accessory A) 3×5-10 Bar Dips  B) Dumbell tricep extension 3×5-8 Work- Open Gym, as you see fit.  Don’t do anything shoulder or low back intensive.

Friday- Primary  Deadlift 3×3 for peak (do not exceed 90% of total effort if you are uncertain about your ability to maintain spinal extension).   Accessory  (performed after the work capacity)- A) 3×5 Deadlift from 3′ blocks.   B) PVC Cobras 3×10  Work- For Time  40 Wallballs, 20 OTB Burpees, 10 Deadlifts at 80% of Primary, 20 OTB Burpees, 40 Wallballs.


Monday-  3×3  Across on the squat, shoulder press and pullups.  Accessory – Squat: 4×1 Singles Greater than Primary but no misses. Shoulder Press-3×3 Negatives. Push jerk up, Shoulder Press down.  Pullup:  3×5 Snatch Grip Bent Row.  Go heavy.

Tuesday-  Work:  ForTime  20 snatches at 95/65,  10 Box Jumps (rxd is no Step) 30/24″,  15 Snatches at 115/80, 15 Box Jumps 24/20″, 10 Snatches at 135/95, 20 Box Jumps 20/16″

  8. Monday Gold
    MU work
    13:35 rx

  9. 16:33 with a mile bike on each side and 55# snatch.

  10. Tuesday Black: 15:10 RX. I split snatch from start Joel caught in squat which was faster. I would catch low next time.

  11. Tuesday Gold 11:20 RX My Doubles were off terribly today.

  12. Tuesday black: not a fan! 19:17 55lb snatch on all sets, 1st round did the squat, round 2&3 power snatch. Rx box jumps. Trying to be optimistic that 2 months ago I couldn’t even snatch 50 lbs.. However would really like to see this movement improve. I guess today was good practice!

  13. Tuesday- I did the Black side reverse ladder of snatches/box jumps. 14:28 First WOD that matched the programming in a while and first 30″ box jumps in forever. Was pleased to be able to hit all 10 decently fast with no missed reps. Did the 115 in sets of 3 touch and go reps, did the 135s as ten split snatch-reset the feet- then OH squat singles. THAT was disappointing. Future goal for this workout would be to catch some or all of those with no spilt and ride it to the bottom.

  14. Tuesday gold:
    12:01 @ home – that was the worst display of dus that I have had in long time. I should have finished in 1/2 that time!
