will have :15 seconds to transition between movements. Coming off the
bar constitutes a "foul". Every :10 off the bar
after coming down is an additional foul. Can you break 350 Double Unders and no Fouls?
Post reps, fouls and bar thickness to comments.
Push-Ups or Ring Push-Ups 3x10
Weight the push-up so that 10 reps are difficult but attainable.
Happy Birthday, Min S.!
In order to clear up some space at the Lyceum, is anyone available this Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon to bring some stuff into the new facility? We would ideally bring in 2 GHDs, the Versa Climber and some crates. Please post to comments if you're available and have access to a truck/van
Change of Training Environment
An often overlooked training variable is the environment in which you workout. Factors like altitude, humidity and temperature can affect how you train and should be accounted for in your planning. As we shift into the colder months make sure to keep these things in mind:
When you get to the gym, the first thing you should do is begin increasing your body temperature. Concept 2 rowing is the ideal method but jumping rope or some simple calisthenics work well too. Connective tissue at colder temperatures is more prone to injury so be sure to warm-up on your own even before we start class. Whether we're lifting or doing conditioning, please be sure to extend your warm-up sets and movemnnt prep before WODS. This becomes especially important for older, injured, and novice athletes.
Dressing in layers will be the best way to retain body heat and stay warm. Consider wearing a light, sweat-wicking base layer under your outer clothing and a beanie. If you think you'll sweat a lot during the workout, you might also want to bring an extra top so that you don't walk home in wet clothing.
Stay in Motion
If you feel yourself getting cold, perhaps waiting for your next set, try to stay moving with some DROMS or even some light rope skipping.
How does your body respond to cold-weather training? What strategies have you employed to stay warm?
