Front Squat 1RM
WOD – “Russian Challenge”
Every Minute 8 Burpees Including 0
125 Russian KBS 70/53 for time
Rx+ 12 Burpees
Front squats … the cycle of strength and gains are set, so let’s see where we are. No endurance, no rep schemes today. We are going to warm-up, build, and hunt down the heaviest front squat we have today. Get fired up!
The WOD, begins with burpees – in place, two feet back two feet forward, jump hands above the shoulders. We hit burpees at the beginning of every new minute, and in the remaining time pick-up a kettlebell and swing. The workout is done once you have completed the total target amount of kettlebell swings of 125.
The KB is heavier than normal, but should be something you can pickup and work in the remaining time you have in each minute.
Scaling up and down will be with the burpee count first. Adjust the KB to something you can safely move.
KB swings should be a rest and you can make this possible by focusing on your breath in each swing. As these are Russian swings, we should be able to cycle much faster and they require less hip force to drive the bells to target height (between shoulders and eye level).
Relay for Rwanda – 42,000m Row, Bike, Ski .. was a blast and a great crowd. Special event t-shirts are on sale and will be ready Monday for pick-up. If you wish to donate, please do.
