“For time” workouts enable you to work at a high power output. They demand that you push the pace in order to accomplish as much work as possible in a given amount of time OR that you complete a set amount of work as fast as you can. Either way- these formats allow us to test your work capacity. We can then compare it against the same set of work that you did in the past (revealing fitness gains) or measure it against the amount someone else has done (to get a “winner”). Personally- the fitness improvements are the most relevant to most of us at the Hut. However, the subtle competition aspect typically will push us to accomplish more… that is the benefit of the group. TODAY, however, we are going to prioritize quality movement. The intensity takes a back seat to addressing solid mechanics and movement patterns. Test to see if your strict toes to bar have improved or “come back” after the quarantine. Let’s slow down the box jumps and see if you can get HIGH every jump with less risk of falling. And finally, we can move some barbells looking to improve technique.
Thursday’s WOD at 7 and 9am, and again at 4pm (*zoom session at 9am)
Six rounds NOT for time of:
8 strict toes to bar
6 box jumps (36/30″!)
4 power snatch at 60% of 1RM
Today, we go for some NOT for time work. This means that the focus is on perfecting movement, moving with intentionality, and attempting to perfect form, even under fatigue. The toes to bar will be strict. The box jumps will be tall, and the power snatch will be at a load where you can make specific technical adjustments.
