Today we have our first ZOOM “compare-to” day- so reach into your journal and look up the second day of quarantine on March 20, 2020… and you will find today’s WOD. It also happens to be the second day of our current shut down. It is an elegant couplet that encourages some heaviness and quite a bit of mental fortitude/struggle (opposite sides of the same coin) with the intention of quality.

“Quality…you know what it is, yet you don’t know what it is. But that’s self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There’s nothing to talk about. But if you can’t say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn’t exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist.” Robert Pirsig, ZATAOMM

Intended Stimulus
Be under control the whole time, this is about QUALITY movement, not speed. Notice it says, as heavy as possible… that is for both movements, you may use a DB or KB. The main point with the TGU’s is to go heavy and maintain good position the whole time, do not rush. The intention with the swings is to get each of the four sets unbroken. The reason for the one minute break is to encourage you to go unbroken and heavy. If you are pretty sure you can get 30 USA swings unbroken, then use USA swings. Notice you will post the loads for both movements and the total times you break each set of swings. The goal is zero. Zero breaks at a heavy loading. You can scale the TGU so much that you are not even using a weight, but go as heavy as you can maintain control. Keep your eyes on the ceiling or overhead and your elbow locked at all times. Move with quality… and care.
