WOD Brief:

Today will be a much-needed reprieve from the heavy lifting we have crushed this week…and will also do a number to any extra chocolaty goodness we endured yesterday. Three simple movements that will test our endurance both mentally, muscularly and physically.

As the rounds decrease the rep scheme increases, thus we will go from more of a max effort sprint pace at the beginning, to a more sustainable effort towards the end. To be efficient on the ski, it is important to remember to extend through the hips and open up fully in the recovery phase so that each pull can be of maximum balance and power. The sandbag carries are where we need to slow down our breathing by taking deeper breaths, fully engage the core and glutes and just move. And finally, the ring dip, again bracing our midline, keeping the rings close to our body, pushing our chest forward, and keeping our elbows back while we lower down for each rep is imperative for maximum efficiency here. No rest between rounds, a true grinder, let’s get after it NBK! November is here!
