Work, rest, recover, repeat. Lets get this week started! Our Monday starts with some thruster work as we build to a heavy set of 3 from the floor. So you should be able to clean it to the shoulder. Then we will jump into “TAILSPIN,” which is an AMRAP 14 of thrusters, double unders and chest to bar pull-ups. Tuesday will make your booty numb because we are taking on a 2K row. This is a chance to work on your consistency, your split times and the smaller details of rowing. Then we will finish off with some gymnastic skill work. “METER MAID,” makes its way to us on Wednesday. This For Time workout consists of a descending rep scheme of 200m run, wallballs and box jumps. We’ll be climbing on Thursday, with the WOD “SKYSCRAPPER.” We will have two 6 min APRAP separated by a 6 min rest of rope climbs, hang power cleans and calories on the assault bike. The only difference between the two APRAPs will be the weight on the barbell, which will go down in the second AMRAP. Friday we’ll begin with building to a heavy set of 5 of power snatches, then you’ll roll into “SCARFACE.” With power snatches and bar-facing burpees we will go back and forth for 6 rounds. Directly after the WOD we will get you back on the rings or your modification of the rings and accumulate 30 ring dips. Saturday is our “LIFTING WRIGHT” event that is a Memorial WOD for two of our members sister, Erin. This workout was created to raise awareness and funds for MD Anderson Cancer Center. “Erin” was created for any skill or fitness level and this workout is open to the public. Join us on Saturday at 8am for our 3rd Annual Lifting Wright WOD.
FROM COMPTRAIN MINDSET:
“When you have one foot in the past, and one in the future, you piss on the present.” – Dan Harris
It’s fun to think about the future, and it’s easy to dwell on the past. What is more challenging is to put the thought power into the present – what is directly in front of us. Right now.
Nothing is insignificant. From the most subtle acts at home between family members, to the minor conversation at work. We never know when it’s our last moment.
It’s less of a morbid thought, and more of a recognition of how fast our lives can be. When everything becomes significant, nothing is more important than right now.
