Ass Bike 400m
3 Rounds:
20 Second Hs hold
10 Barbell Front Squats

Strict Press
Sets every 2min
*Allow 7 mins to build to working weight

Coach’s Intent:
Our strength work today is the beginning of our new pressing cycle. Athletes will be kicking off with a strict press. 5 sets of 3. We are to allow our athletes 7 mins to build up to their working weight. We want this to be heavy but avoiding failure.
Coaching the movement:
With a solid base underneath the body, athletes should take a deep breath in bracing the midline and glutes. Pulling the head back early we then press the bar from the shoulders. We are looking for a straight bar path from shoulder to overhead.
4 DBL DB Squats B: 15/10 G: 22.5/15 R: 25/17.5
8 DBL DB Squats
12 DBL DB Squats
WOD Brief:
Our workout today is an ascending rep AMRAP. We are working with two movements, a DBL DB squat. Athletes may choose to hold these DBS any way they please. This is followed by a kipping HSPU. The intent of this workout will be to complete as much of the workout unbroken as possible. We may have to look at breaking the HSPU for less experienced athletes to avoid complete failure.

Coach’s Intent:
Our strength work today is the beginning of our latest minor cycle. We will be testing the 3rm. As always when testing we will allow our athletes 20 mins to build up to their max. This is an initial test, athletes should not be disheartened if no improvement on previous max.
Coaching the movement:
Setting the body tight, athletes will hinge at the hip, bending from the knee to the barbell. Driving through the ground, maintaining shoulders over the bar athletes will rise with hips and shoulders at the same time. Going to extension at the hip by pushing the glutes through toward the barbell to lock out their rep.

Strict Pull Up
4×3 Weighted Pull Ups + 12-15 Banded Strict Pull Ups

Coach’s intent:
Throughout our small gymnastics cycle for April we will be focussing on our pulling. We will target, strength, endurance, kipping and strict. Today we are kicking off with endurance. We have got Low volume weighted pull ups working on our strength, immediately into high volume banded pull ups, targeting our muscular endurance through the pulling motion.
Coaching the movement:
With a hollow body and full extension of the arms, athletes will pull down hard on the bar rising until their chin clears the pull up bar. We should think about squeezing the shoulder blades together at the top of the rep to complete the final pull.

WOD Brief:
Today’s workout consists once again of 2 movements, for time. We have a high volume of rounds. Athletes have a DBL DB squat clean and double unders. For more advanced athletes we should should be encouraging unbroken rounds from the beginning. Less experienced athletes may have to break the DBs into 2 sets and decrease the volume of double unders, to perform these unbroken.

WOD Brief:
Today’s workout is high volume light weight. We should be moving through each movement at pace performing large sets. It would be a detriment for our athletes to try to achieve large sets of push ups. Once this movement is fatigued it will take reduce the intensity of the workout.

Coaching the Movement:
Bracing the torso nice and tight, we should think about pulling the elbows in tight to the body, locking in the back, then pulling the ribs down toward the hips. Sitting the hips back and down, keeping weight through the heels, we want to be driving up through the bar leading with the chest.
