WOD Brief

Fresh new week full of goodness. First off we have a Relay for Rwanda on Friday – if you want to hit 42,000m and help raise money for Rwanda, join in! We are building crews and will begin at 2pm. This will take some time, so you can join at the beginning or help after work. We’ll hit dinner Friday night. Note – it is Labor Day weekend, so we are going big!!

Today’s strength complex has us getting HEAVY. The weight will be limited to what you can combine together. Of course, we can and will adjust movements to fit your ability.

The WOD begins a with a FAST 1 mile run. We will sub AAB where needed.

After the run is completed, athletes will use the remaining time of 15 minutes to complete as many rounds of a deadlift (standard) -> hang power snatch -> overhead squat.

Some tips, you can DL anyway you like, but definitely suggest standard grip for the first 8, and then go Snatch grip DL for the 9th. The weight you select should be something you can manage well. Ideally we go unbroken on the OHS every round. If stability is a challenge (locked out overhead) we can move to a backsquat.

The AMRAP will be demanding hook grip, so be sure you secure those hands and keep that bar close.
