Happy Easter Sunday to you all! Hope you had a great weekend filled with everything you needed. We will be starting off Monday by bringing it back to a popular 90’s girl band and where Beyonce made her start. “Destiny’s Child” has a 15-12-9 rep scheme back to back with no rest. The first couplet is power snatches and box jump overs that will then lead you into overhead squats and lateral barbell burpees. You’ll race into Tuesday with a running and rowing workout called “Boat Races.” This cardiovascular race will challenge your lungs but with a built in rest between rounds we will want you to focus on an aggressive pace. Wednesday we have “The Chief,” which we have seen before. A CrossFit benchmark workout where we are cycling a moderate loaded barbell then completing push ups and air squats in a quick AMRAP 3 repeated 5 times. Thursday we will focus on something we haven’t really seen in a workout, the strict toes to bar. In “Old Town Road,” you will be completing 6 rounds of calories on the assault bike, farmers carry and strict toes to bar. With a high skill movement, it will be less about completing the movement as prescribed and more about finding a challenging variation for each athlete. Finishing the week on Friday with a two part workout, starting with finding a heavy set of 3 of overhead squat from the rack and then rolling into an AMPRAP 15 of dubz, rowing and overhead squats with a workout called “Denim.” Then our good ol’ Saturday workouts, these are always the fun ones. We are running, deadlifting and alllllll the burpees with a 3 round workout called “Bubba Gump.”
FROM COMPTRAIN MINDSET:
“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible to your approach.” – Tony Robbins
We can’t always see what is ahead on the windy road.
We don’t know if there will be a rain storm, a massive oak tree blocking the road, or road construction. All of which causing a detour off the planned path.
Direction without flexibility is a recipe for disaster. It’s not a matter of if, but when, we hit the roadblock.
And flexibility without direction is living like a leaf in the wind.
We need them both. With our destination in clear mental focus, the how becomes not nearly as important as the what.
