Sandbag bear hug
WOD – “YAY”
3 min Sand Bag run (shoulder)(distance)
2 min row (max cal)
1 min bike (max cal)
We will go for a 7 lap bear hug today. On the carry, make sure you breathe through your nose. No mouth breathing allowed. If you feel yourself panicking a bit, take 3 breaths through the mouth and switch right back to nose breathing. Force yourself to squeeze the bag with your arms so that your pecs engage (constantly) and squeeze your internal obliques (ab muscles on the left and right side of your bellybutton). Do this and you’ll gain strength in all lifting movements and zero back pain, forever.
Today’s WOD has us begin with a 3 minute max shoulder carry. Aim for a solid light job. The weight should be relative to your ability, but something lighter than the 7 lap strength carry. Brute force bags would be good here. For the big fellas and strong ladies the grey bags would be as heavy as recommended.
As the clock winds down, get yourself to a rower, and at the beginning of the new minute – GO FOR BROKE. You have 2 minutes, so it is a full out pace across that time range … Focus on legs driving down and then a quick hip action.
Finally, we’ll go hard on the Assault bike (or Echo if you are feeling spicy) for a minute more.
Rest … and then repeat. You NEED to record your calories on a board. Score is TOTAL laps+total cals
If you are thinking pacing, think: 85%, 95%, 105%, 120% effort respectively for each round.
