As the weekend falls upon us- are you preparing to do something fun outside?* I hope so. It seems like every couple of weeks I write a blog post that is related to getting out into the “real world” and doing something active and fun. A way to not only express the fitness you have, but also as a way to go outside and play. To refresh the batteries, connect with nature and simply be physical in a way that is not a “gym” type of way to be physical. Not work, not a work out, just fun. Does Rich look like he knows how to have fun?

***Of course consider starting the weekend at CFMalibu on Saturday morning**
Friday’s WOD: class times at 7, 9, 10am and again at 3 and 5pm
Warm up and then 10 solid minutes of hip mobility work
Take 15 minutes to work up to a heavy 3 rep Touch and Go clean (squat or power)
no dropping weight, even the last rep must be lowered slowly to ground
For time, complete:
21 push ups
21 DB swing (50/35# dumbbell) …that’s not a typo
300m run (same direction, turn around at wooden electric pole)
15 push ups
15 DB swing (50/35# dumbbell)
200m run (Artifac Tree mail box)
9 push ups
9 DB swing (50/35# dumbbell)
Post heaviest 3 rep clean and metcon time/scaling to journals/chalkboard.
- T and G cleans. Clean it. Lower to top of deadlift position. Touch the ground and GO. Repeat. Lower to the ground under total control. This is training, not testing.
- PUSH the run! Especially if you feel like you take a break on the run- push it. Rest between push ups
- Dumbbell swings… haven’t done them in a few years. Work on that grip strength, a new balance point.
- Regular push ups… but as you know- keep the elbows tucked in, close to the body. Full ROM!
