WOD Brief

Your goals are paved my the smallest of actions you take moment by moment. Building on each moment is what allows us to reach the greatest of heights in life and fitness. Focus and take advantage of the cumulative nature of this program. The ability to retest a movement, try a higher tempo or different technique to get better will lead to the biggest benefits.
Assess your performance in the breaks, not during the work periods – during work we work and a wandering mind is taking energy from the opportunity at hand. Focus and improve moment by moment.

WOD Brief

CrossOver Symmetry is available daily across six stations and part of our warm-up today. A few key reminders:
Activation protocol (what we will use today)
The most important protocol, it gets you in an optimal position to function, fires all the tissue in the correct planes of motion, and in the correct sequence (that is the key) warms up rotator cuff which are similar to your feet and hands with not so great blood flow. Fire the serratus anterior, mid to low trap & rhomboids. –> Neuromuscular firing is the point here.
* DO NOT SHRUG…..never ever. We are getting all rotators of the scap to do their jobs since they are shut down and likely weak.
* Do not use this to fatigue.

The NBK community and friends paid tribute on Sunday by climbing 110 stories to commemorate the heroes who lost their lives to save others on September 11, 2001. (110 stories = stories of World Trade Center).

Two of our ladies completed it with a heavy weight vest to mimic the gear First Responders wear in these events. A great event, fundraiser, and a valuable reminder of the courage and significance these First Responders have in our lives. Thank you to Randi, Jenny, Stacey, Jonathon, and the many others who completed the event. Special thank you to Frank M and Espo, our close friends, who live this life daily.

WOD PREP

Build up w/ 2 working sets:

Strength/Skill:2×8 80% of 1RM DeadLift

“WZA Qualifier #6” 

90 DU
70 Wall Ball (20/14)
50 Deadlift (135/95)
30 Burpee Pull up
50 Deadlift
70 Wall Balls (20/14)
90 DU

WOD Brief

This workout is a test of our engine. Lighter loads on the deadlift barbell and burpee pull-ups mean we are striving for a consistent yet aggressive pace throughout the entire chipper.
DU – Be efficient and keep heart rate low
Wall Balls – Chip away conservatively with short rests if necessary (3 sets of 25 would be nice)
Dead Lifts – consistency and small sets – a set of 15-10-10-10
Burpee pull-ups – move methodically here with a bias to step ups
On the return – begin to move faster, smaller sets will occur, so grind away, and stay consistent.
There are a good amount of movements here, so transition quickly and attack each station. You’ll save 2-3 minutes simply by moving with intention.
