Workout of the Day (WOD)

“Raising the Bar”

9 Minute AMRAP

8 Lateral Bar Hop Burpees
7 Cleans
6 Front Rack Lunges (Level 1 – Front Squats)
5 Shoulder to Overhead

(m = 65/95/135, w = 45/55/95)

Tips from Neal Maddox:

I trust you will enjoy this workout again. Think about your experience with the workout the first time around. Did you struggle in your transitions? Could you have taken more strategic rest? For example, if you need to break up a round, it is better to set the bar down after 6 cleans, rest and then clean the bar up into the front rack position for your 7th rep. This sets you up for your front rack lunges without doing an extra rep. Also, fight not to put the bar down during front rack lunges and shoulder to overhead, because every drop results in an extra clean. Have fun, stay steady, and we can't wait to see your improvements. - Neal Maddox - 7 Time Games Athlete

Post rounds and reps completed. Ex: 7+7 L3

Workout of the Day (WOD)

“Nimble Sasquatch"
14 Minute AMRAP


Level 3
2-4-6-8-10-... Squat Clean & Jerk (165/115)
1-2-3-4-5-... Muscle Up
Continue adding 2 Squat Clean & Jerks and 1 Muscle Up per Round

Level 2
2-4-6-8-10-... Squat Clean & Jerk (135/95)
2-4-6-8-10-... Pullups
Continue adding 2 Squat Clean & Jerks and 2 Pull-Ups per Round

Level 1
2-4-6-8-10-... Clean & Jerk (65/45)
3-6-9-12-15-... Ring Rows
Continue adding 2 Clean & Jerks and 3 Ring Rows per Round

This WOD is designed to test your strength and gymnastics skills under fatigue. My advice for this workout is to pick the level that allows you to keep moving without more than a 10-second rest in between any given rep. So, no you won't go unbroken throughout the workout, but don't be standing around for half the workout just to grind through a few reps. The weight should be no more than 75% of your 1RM. The workout is even spicy for me at Level 2, so don't let your pride get in the way of getting in a phenomenal workout. - Neal Maddox - 7 Time Games Athlete

Post rounds plus reps completed. Ex: 6+8 L3

Workout of the Day (WOD)

“Dead Sprint” [10 Minute Time Cap]
10 Deadlift (m = 135/185/225, w = 95/145/175)
20 Double Unders
8 Deadlift
40 Double Unders
6 Deadlift
60 Double Unders
4 Deadlift
80 Double Unders
2 Deadlift
100 Double Unders**

** Level 2 = 10-20-30-40-50 Double Unders OR Singles 1:1, Level 1 = Singles 1:1

This WOD is meant to be all out. If you are planning on where you are going to strategize or save energy then you have already lost. Work with your trainer to determine what level you should pick based on being able to complete all deadlift reps with PERFECT form. The faster the workout calls you move, the more precise your technique needs to be dialed in. Therefore, only push the deadlift as heavy and as fast as you are able to show mastery of the movement. NO EXCEPTIONS. Also, if you can't yet string more than 10 Double Unders together in a row, consider doing the Single Under option at Level 2 or Level 1.

Post time to complete the WOD. Ex: 6:40 L3.


And coming tomorrow...

A. GHD Situps: Complete 3 sets of 10 reps. Rest 2 minutes between sets.

B. 3 Rounds [20 Minute Time Cap]

25 Reverse Hypers
600m Run (L1/L2) (L3 = 800m)

Post time for the WOD. Ex: 15:50 L3.

Workout of the Day (WOD)

A. Turkish Get ups: Complete 4 sets of 4 reps increasing weight.

B. “Lucky 13”
13 Minute AMRAP

13 Toes to Bar*
13 Kettlebell Swings (m = 16/24/32kg, w = 12/16/24kg) (L1 = Russian Swings)
13 Lateral Box Jump Overs (m = 24/24/30, w = 20/20/24)**

*Toes to Bar Levels
L3: T2B
L2: Wall Situps
L1: Wall Situps

**Step ups and downs permitted for Level 1 and 2.

This workout has been developed in collaboration with Neal Maddox to get your heart pumping and legs and lungs burning. Pick a skill level that doesn't result in getting stuck for too long. If you have T2B but not yet 13 unbroken, Level 2 could be right. If hanging on the bar will be challenging for that many reps, you might consider going to Level 1 so you can keep moving and get more work done!

Speak with your coach if you have questions about which level is most appropriate for you. Enjoy the workout, and see you on the whiteboard!

Post load for TGU and rounds+reps completed in the AMRAP. Ex: 55#, 5+32 L3
