TODAY we have Relay for Rwanda – we kick-off at 2pm. Another team at 4pm and all are welcome to join in. You can even scale to a half-marathon in support of Rwanda ($10 donation) to qualify for a sweet t-shirt. All team members will qualify to purchase an event shirt for $20 (all proceeds to Hospital). Afterwards – JOIN us for great beer (water … electrolyte filled water bottles) at Variant & Standard at Roswell! Post on FB any questions.
Strength is the front squat. We have been working various front rack strength positions in endurance and in straight linear progressions. Today we go straight at it.
The WOD is all strongman all day.
As teams of 4, each athlete will move 1 implement. The 4th team member gets to rest. Rotate as you need across the rounds. The weights are meant to be heavy, so rotate as you need and be sure you get work done on every implement!
Yokes – these are HEAVY. So rotate regularly. We will have one yoke set for men and another set for ladies. We will scale to heavy sandbags instead of the yokes. If a mixed grouping is set – yoke can be made lighter OR 2 bumper plates can be added and removed (athletes would simply make a lap with 1 weight and then add weight with other athlete)
Sled drag .. face forward with straps on your shoulders if possible. Find a comfortable stacked position and move those legs.
Farmer carry – one in each hand
At the beginning of 3, 2,1 GO .. athletes will complete a 200m run (everyone) .. and then proceed for max distance on the implements. Every 5 minutes athletes will stop where they are and run 200m, again, together.
