Workout of the Day
Barbell Floor Press
In no more than 5 total sets, work up to a heavy 10 on the floor press. Use a 3-2-1-2 Tempo on your reps.
30 Kettlebell Swings
25 Kettlebell Swings
20 Kettlebell Swings
15 Kettlebell Swings
Use a medium/light Kettlebell that will allow you to hit every set unbroken. Flow through the workout at a steady and sustainable pace. If you’re still recovering from Murph, you can remove the Push-up from the burpee.

Next Training Cycle Details
Our next training cycle starts on Monday with guest programmer Coach Whitney taking the helm of programming for the next six weeks! Check out the details below!
Dates: 6/6/22 – 7/17/22 (6 weeks)
Overview: This cycle will include dedicated days for olympic weightlifting, as well as a variety of strength work, where we’ll utilize tempos. Gymnastic skill days will be peppered in throughout the cycle
MON: Squat, UB pull bias
TUE: Snatch, plyometric bias
WED: Hinge/Horizontal Push
THU: Unilateral Squat/Vertical Pull
FRI: Clean, Jerk, Vertical Push
SAT: Mixed, squat/UB pull bias
SUN: Unilateral Hinge, Carry bias
Pause Front Squat: Tempo @ 21×1
WK1 3X4 (find 7/10 RPE and do 3 sets there)
WK2 3X6 (same load as WK 1)
WK3 3X8 (same load as WK 1)
WK4 3X4 (reset heavier than WK1)
WK5 3X6 (same as WK 4)
WK6 3X8 (same as WK 4)
The intent each week on squats will be to hold the tempo, including a solid pause at the bottom of the athlete’s full depth on each rep. We’ll build volume at the same weight for 3 weeks; then reset a bit heavier and repeat!
*Focus will be on consistent positions and speed. Humble yourself and be prepared to work with light weight to achieve that! If you don’t yet have the mobility for a full range of motion overhead squat, opt for the power snatch + OHS variations offered so you can work into the range you currently own.
A1) Hinge: Weeks 1-3 will see a volume build on the RDL. Weeks 4-6 will see an intensity build on a paused deadlift.
WK 1: Barbell RDL 3 x 6-8 @ 3111 (find 7/10 RPE and do 3 sets there)
WK 2: Barbell RDL 3 x 8-10 @ 3111 (same load wk 1)
WK 3: Barbell RDL 3 x 10-12 @ 3111 (same load wk 1)

*Work at a 7-8/10 RPE. Priority is holding full ROM on the tempo within the rep range, at an appropriate challenge for you. Guidance will be given in class regarding bands, weighted variation, etc.
*All 6 weeks will be the same prescription. Given that, keep in mind that as an athlete you’ll be in charge of progressing yourself in terms of bands, volume, range of motion, and/or load where appropriate across the cycle. Gains can be yours if you keep a good training log and push yourself here!
A) Power Clean and Jerk complexes
B) Upper Body Vertical Push supsersets, trisets, etc. — Shoulder Gainz!
