Workout of the Day (WOD)

A. Front Rack Mobility: Spend 10 minutes on Lats, wrists, and T-spine.

B. “Karen Meets Annie” [17 Minute Time Cap]
50-40-30-20-10
Wall Balls**
Double Unders**
Wall Situps

**Level Movement Details:
L3: Wall Balls (20# to 10ft/14# to 10ft), Double unders
L2: Wall Balls (14# to 10ft/10# to 10ft), 25-20-15-10-5 Double Unders
L1: Wall Balls (14# to 9ft/10# to 9ft), Single unders

Performance Tips:
This workout was inspired by Power Keg CrossFit in San Diego, CA and in collaboration with Neal Maddox. This is twist of 2 beloved benchmark workouts that will put your motor to the test. The goal is to complete the workout as quickly as possible within the time cap. However, not all athletes will be able to finish the entire workout within the time cap, so do your best and use that cap as extra motivation. Not finishing doesn’t mean failure. The workout is tough by design and will help get you ready for the Open.

Pick a skill level that allows you to keep moving rather than get stuck on one of the movements like double unders. If you aren’t proficient at double unders but you can still link 5-6 reps in a row, Level 2 might be the best option due to the scaled rep requirement.

Post time for the WOD. Ex: 14:10 L3.

And coming tomorrow…

A. Bench Press: In 15 minutes working up to a 3 rep max.

B. 16 Minute EMOM:
1st: 12 Goblet Squats (m = 16/24/32 kg, w = 12/16/24)

3rd: 6 Strict Pullups (L2/L3+ = C2B)
4th: 1 set 30 second Elbow Plank Hold

Post load for bench and fewest number of reps completed each minute for each movement. The reps do not have to be unbroken. Only 1 set for the plank.
Ex: 265#, 12-10-5-40 L3+.

Upcoming CFM Events

Thursday, Jan 26th: Mobility Night with Dr. Jackie Varnum at 6pm. This will be the first session of a 2 part series going over mobility for CrossFit Athletes.
