WOD Brief

Today we have training that is very targeted at our aerobic energy systems. We hit a sprint at increasing intensities (a run but could easily be pushed to an Assault Bike or sandbag effort if injuries persist) combined with an all out power push through a ski and a row. The goal here is to aim for the intensities prescribed and then max out the last two movements.

As each round decreases in work, you’ll be able to be more aggressive and risk more. Go ahead and be bold, brave, and as we say in Endurance – burn it down. Let’s see what we can do.

The benefit of going maximal or super-maximal for these last two movements is the following:

  • Increased VO2 max
  • Increased lactate threshold
  • Increased blood volume
  • buffering capability
  • Increased lactate clerance
  • Increased glycolytic enzymes

Know why you are training and trust the process. We program to maximize your fitness for a long healthy life. These engines that we build power us daily as a parent, daughter, brother, son, leader, motivator, and as an athlete.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again at The Standard for the Open announcement of 18.2
