Intended Stimulus
To go heavy and unbroken even though there are 20 reps in each round. Warm up well so that you can begin as heavy as you can for the first round. If you hit that load for unbroken reps- then either go heavier OR add a rep or 2 to each movement. Both of these tactics will increase the total volume lifted. It is preferable that you add weight. But if you don’t, add reps.

General Warm Up
Air squats, Samson stretch and some dynamic range of motion in the squat and shoulders to begin the session. Sit ups, windmills and then some static trunk bracing drills- planks and hollow holds, birddogs, and superman.

Specific Warm Up
We will cover each movement unweighted and then gradually add load and reps to prep the body for the activity. RDLs will prep the spine for bracing during each of the movements- then we get more dynamic and prep the bottom of the squat and overhead positioning.

Workout Notes
Use solid mechanics! Each movement of the 4 have their own individual pitfalls- we will cover common flaws and corrections in the class. Take the time to rest up between sets. This is a good way to complete the WOD with heavy loads and no misses.

In class we are going to so some natural movement- ground activities to finish up today
