WOD– Strength and Mini-Metcon
The workout for today will be a strength session, followed by a mini-metcon. Basically this means we do some lifting, then a short metabolic workout following. We’ll start with the basic lifts and go from there. Click on the links to see demo and explanations of the movements.
Strength- Hang Power Cleans, 5 x 5
Watch this video for instruction on the hang power clean. The movement is initiated from the “hang” position, which basically means mid-thigh. Keys are driving the heels down, full extension on the hips, and not bending the arms “early”. If you don’t have rubber/bumper weights, do these near a rack or blue mat in case you have to drop the bar.
3 rounds for time of:
15 Hang Power Cleans, Advanced: 135 lbs/Intermediate: 95lbs/Beginner: 65lbs)
Post weights of HPC’s and time of mini-metcon to comments.
Day 1 Cardio-
2 mile run, as fast as possible
Post times to comments.
Day 2 Cardio-
Jumprope (single unders or double-unders)- 30 seconds on/30 seconds off for 6 minutes
Post reps completed to comments.
For the stretching, we’ll continue using “MobilityWOD“. It’s a free blog by Kelly Starrett, DPT. Each day different stretching/mobility movements are covered. Items generally used are foam rollers, a lacrosse ball (or tennis ball), and some stretching bands.
Day 1 Stretching/Mobility- “Let’s Change the Way We Think About the Shoulder, Eh? ”
Today’s mobility homework involves creating a wee paradigm shift. You see, they way you probably think about the shoulder is, well, incomplete. The shoulder doesn’t end at the ball and socket. In fact, the scapulo-humeral relationship is often the least important aspect of shoulder movement (put that in your pain ball and roll it…). The shoulder is simply a series of relationships you’ve GOT to manage
Day 2 Stretching/Mobility- “Death By Chair: How Much Do You Actually Sit?”
Today’s program is simple: Cultivate an awareness of how much you actually sit during the course of the day.
The Mission? Every time you sit down (toilet, breakfast, box, on the bed) you have to pay a 1 min stretch “buy” in.
How many minutes did you end up owing? Post number of penalty sessions to comments.
If you’re at all like me or my kids, you love anything with bacon, eggs, and avocado in it. In our home, at least one meal a day is a giant salad.
