Post time, load and scaling
The goal is the get in some volume of wall ball shots. And 2 other movements 🙂 I’d like you to get through the entire WOD as fast as you can regardless of how you decide to break up the wall balls shots. You mnight consider a big first and second set… but after getting into round 2, the small sets and even smaller breaks could be the best way to go! At the end of round 1 it might FEEL like a push up workout. But not for long.
General Warm Up
Let’s begin with a good old fashioned “CrossFit Warm Up”… minus the pull ups, unless you have a pull up bar!
5 pull ups, 10 push ups (or a warm up version of them), 10 air squats, 10 Samson Stretches. Hit that for 2 rounds… and we are ready to move on.
Specific Warm up
Let’s do a bit of squat therapy… as well as some single legged squat work. This will start with some lizard lunge mobility and head into some candlesticks that eventually lead to driving up from the candlestick in a single legged squat back to standing. We will practice some med ball cleans. Then we will be ready to go.
As mentioned in the intention… come up with the best way to get through the shots both fast and unphased. Yes, those are on opposite ends of the spectrum- but try and find the middle. Smallish sets and VERY short breaks. I like 8-10 reps every 30 seconds. The rest is built in if you start a set exactly every 30 seconds. Let it drop, take a breath, pic it up and do it again. 16-20 reps each minute and you have air and stamina for the sit ups and push ups. This is NOT the goal on every wall ball workout- but it is the drill today.
