WOD – “Turbo” 

5 rounds for time
15 burpees over bar (lateral)
10 Front Squats (115/75) (155/105)

WOD Brief

Today we’ll work an EMOM first and focus on skills while building up on the barbell. The goal for the skill is to hit the target reps or work for the solid :40 the entire time in attempts and effort.

The WOD is a straight out tough burner. The rep scheme is big enough to require respect and an all out sprint will ruin you – but – this should be aggressive. Test before start on your pace. Since the burpees are lateral you don’t have to open at the top. This is awesome for speed, but also increases the heart rate at a solid clip. Front squats should be light and unbroken, as these are from the floor.

A strategy here – for burpees, if you can do 15 in :30 then maybe go for :35 seconds ..  so you can pick the bar straight up and get squatting. If you are recovering from an injury – scale the weight or adjust the lift to help you get the intention of today’s training.

Today’s intention = high heart rate and a barbell forcing you to breath heavy under tension through the movements. The EMOM prior to the WOD will help you prep for today’s WOD, so put in the work and let’s get after it!
