A BIG congratulations to Becca and Shaya as they attend Pepperdine graduation this weekend! Becca will walk across the stage on Alumni Field on Saturday morning with a BA in Sports Medicine while Shaya will walk on Sunday as part of a VERY delayed 2020 ceremony recognizing her BA in Psychology.

Thursday 210520 Clean and Jerks + Row Sprints

Dr. Deb and Laura M face off out back during Monday’s 20 minute AMRAP

5 rounds each for time on the 4 minute mark:
3 Power Clean and Jerks (80/55kg)
21/16 cal row
Post all times and any scaling
Score is your SLOWEST time 🙂

Intended Stimulus
Get a load on the barbell that forces you to think. You should have to approach the bar and intentionally get set up before attempting the lift. Then, after dropping the bar, you should need to take a few breaths to gather yourself for another lift. If you can just bust out 3 clean and jerks without much hesitation, then go heavier. The row is just long enough to make sprint hurt, but sprint nonetheless 🙂 Rest the remainder of the 4 minutes. Post all your times to SugarWOD. Your slowest is your score.

Wednesday 210519 TGUs+L-sits then Annie

Training days like yesterday’s 5×5 volume sets of deadlift are so essential to our program because they allow us to dial in our mechanics and get in a relatively high number of reps at a load we can manage, a load we can still make adjustments at. So many of you left The Hut yesterday with a better deadlift than the one you came in with! It’s also worth noting that volume work makes us stronger 🙂 Today, take the same approach with the TGUs and the gymnastics L-sit variation the coach prescribes for you. Dial in your technique from the very first warm-up set. Then, go and PR “Annie”!

Workout of the Day:
With a 20 minute cut off:
Build to a heavy set of 2/2 Turkish get up
Parallette/Ring L-sit skill work between sets of TGUs


50-40-30-20-10 reps for time of:
Butterfly Sit-ups
Compare Annie to Dec 7 2018, April 19 2018, Nov 16 2017, July 20 2017, May 24 2016, Dec 30 2015, Jan 8 2015, Jan 6 2014, June 11 2013, June 10 2011
**Rowing Annie is a great substitute. Row in these increments: 150m, 140m, 130m, 120m, 110m

Monday 210517 AMRAP 20: Row, Pull, Push, Squat

Jacob gets set up in the proper deadlift position for a MB clean.

Yoga on ZOOM with Maria Monday at 5:30pm!

20 minute AMRAP:
250m row
6 pull-ups
12 deficit push-ups
18 DB front squats (35/25#)

Intended Stimulus
Check out that light DB load for today! Try to go unbroken as long as possible on each movement today. That means getting the scaling just right on the push-ups AND the correct loading for that big set of DB front squats. As the rounds go by you may need to start breaking things up, but at the start of this workout shoot for unbroken sets. Intentionally pick a row pace and stick with it for all 20 minutes. Somewhere right around 8-10 seconds slower than your 500m PR pace should be perfect 🙂

Saturday 210515

Sign-up in advance on MindBody for our regularly scheduled Saturday classes at 8:00 and 9:00am!

Friday 210514 20 Minutes For Quality

CrossFit Malibuites, meet the strict toes to bar with a SLOW eccentric lower. You’ll get your toes or shins to the bar (scale to knees as high as possible) and then you will lower your feet slowly until you return to a hang directly under the bar. The Rx version of this movement has the legs staying straight the entire time. Knees bent on the way up and down is a great scaling that will still prove very challenging! This is embedded in a workout that is for quality, so just like you will not rush through the tall box jump, you also shouldn’t rush through these eccentric lowers.



20 minutes for quality:
10 Ring/Bar Dips
5 Tall Box Jumps (36/30″)
10 Push-ups
5 Strict TTB with Slow Eccentric Lower
post emoji and any scaling!

Thursday 210513 Monostructural Madness


Every 5 minutes for 6 intervals:
Row 500m/Run 400m/Bike 0.6 miles for time
Must complete each modality 2x in any order

Post total time in this section and your individual times for each interval in the appropriate section below this workout

Intended Stimulus
On each of these intervals, regardless of what modality, you will get a bit more rest time than work time. That does not mean that you will fully recover between bouts. In fact, with each passing interval there will be slightly less recovery, thus specifically targeting one of the 10 domains of fitness with solely monostructural work. That domain is… stamina! Take your rest seriously today. Walk around, or simply sit down on a box and focus on your next bout. The order in which you complete these 6 tasks is up to you (and maybe when bikes are available), but we will start each one as a group on the 5 minute mark.

Wednesday 210512 Handstand Helen

April was a busy month for the PR board! Check out all the hard work paying off and as we get well into May, here is a reminder to keep logging your data in SugarWOD. One of the keys to setting personal records is knowing what to aim for! And for today’s workout, break out your journals and see if you have a “Handstand Helen” time to shoot for. Compare-to dates are listed below.


Handstand Helen
Three rounds for time of:
12 handstand push ups
21 KB swings (24/16kg)
400m run
post finish time and scaling to SugarWOD
compare to: Dec 2nd, 2019, Dec 8th, 2016, June 16th, 2010

Tuesday 210511 Front Squat 1RM

This past weekend, Debby competed in the CrossFit Games Age Group Online Qualifier, an event she qualified for by placing in the top 10% of her age division in the worldwide CrossFit Open! Over the course of 3 days she had to complete 5 judged workouts, many of which had high level gymnastics and heavy barbells. Here are some of the many highlights: Debby completed more than a few kipping handstand push-ups. She set a new PR on her overhead squat AND established a 4RM front squat. She successfully and skillfully climbed the 15ft rope (pictured below) 6 times! As many of you witnessed as you showed up for the 8am Saturday class, she did 75 power cleans before cranking out 63 double unders! And while all of this is so very impressive, it is the example she sets and the inspiration she is to all of us that I am most proud of. Thank you Debby for your incredibly positive attitude, your relentless pursuit of excellence, and you desire to get just a little bit better each and every day. We are so proud of you! What’s next?.. Well, we’ll see you at The Hut for another day of training 😉
