Friday 210827 Power Snatch and Parallettes

When was the last time you went all out in a workout?  I mean all out.  From 3, 2, 1, GO- you set off full speed ahead with no regard for when you would hit the wall?  When was the last time you scoffed at strategizing and timing out each round so that you would avoid “blowing up”?  Believe it or not, there IS a time and a place for deciding to forget about planning how fast execute a set of reps.  In fact, if you train for too much time without pushing to find the edge… how do you know you are actually even approaching those boundaries any more?  Make some room in your training to go out HARD… maybe even purposefully trying to bite off more than you THINK you can chew.  This is not only where learning occurs… but it is also where mental toughness is gained, and where now-found levels of intensities are experienced.  Even if the end result of the workout is that it took you longer than it would have if you played it safe… you should try it every now and then.  Maybe that day is TODAY?! (repost from 200831)


5 rounds for time:
10 Power snatch (50/35kg)
15 Strict parallette push-ups
Post time, load, and scaling

Intended Stimulus
Plan on spending a lot of time working on the power snatch today with light loads. Then, when it’s workout time, find a load that allows you to complete 10 reps in 2 sets. Singles on the power snatches from the beginning means you went too heavy. But 10 reps unbroken means too light! The 15 push-ups should be done in 3 sets or fewer. The parallettes make these slightly easier than a normal push-up, but being elevated means you cannot sag through the midline at all! Go all out on this one and post your PR to the chalk board!

Thursday 210826 Gymnastics + 3200m

This workout kicks off with a big chunk of gymnastics (50 toes to bar) before moving into some longer duration monostructural work (a mile row + a mile run). Go Rx on the toes to bar if you can string 8-10 toes to bar in a row at least once, otherwise scale to something that allows you to get 50 reps done in 5-6 sets. Note how long it takes you to complete the 50 toes to bar so you can add that data point into the SugarWOD notes section. Pace your 1609m row. Going near PR pace will not feel good when you unstrap and start your 1 mile run! In fact, going at a pace a few seconds slower on the row may end up allowing you to make up much more time than that on the run. Obviously, I’m not suggesting that you sandbag the row… just that you don’t blow up with a mile run still left to complete! After the row, head out of the yard at a fairly conservative pace, after all, you’re going to try and negative split this 1 mile run AND it keeps you safe in the yard. Pick up the pace a bit when you turn right onto Webb Way, and when you hit that turnaround point up Stuart Ranch Road, it’s time to give it everything you have on the last 800m back to The Hut! Remember, this entire workout is for time so leave a bit of gas in the tank after the TTB and after the row so you’re not trotting that mile run 😉 There is no time cap today… Just set a pace and get it done!

Wednesday 210825 Thrusters and Pull-ups

Ahhh, the beautiful combo of thruster and pull-ups 🙂 This time in the form of a heavy day! Before the workout starts, look to build to about 85% of your 1RM thruster load. If you don’t have a 1RM thruster, this should feel “moderately heavy”. Your thrusters will come from the rack, and after your 3 unbroken reps, you’ll transition to the weighted strict pull-ups. These are also roughly 85% 1RM, and should be unbroken. Ideally, you will keep the same thruster and pull-up load across all 10 rounds, however, tinkering in the early rounds is allowed. Those who cannot yet do 3 strict pull-ups should do 3 reps of eccentric lowers, lowering for at least 5 seconds. You can use a band to help you lower more slowly if a 5 second lower is not possible unbanded.

Charlene sets up for one of many power cleans while the pups judge her technique.


Every 2 minutes for 10 rounds:
3 Thrusters (AHAP)
3 Weighted Strict Pull-ups (AHAP)
post thruster load and pull-up load to SugarWOD

Tuesday 210824 Three 4 Minute AMRAPs

Congrats to Jonathan, María, and Matthew for completing their CrossFit Level 2 certification this past weekend in San Diego! We are proud of you and excited to experience your learning put into practice in our group classes and individual sessions here at The Hut.

I’m really thankful we were able to do the level 2 seminar because we were able to learn from an awesome and very wise seminar staff, as well as from all the coaches around us taking the course, too. I was, and continue to be, excited by the fact that I can keep learning and gaining new tools (cues, progressions, ways of demonstrating) to help make everyone a better mover, and overall more healthy. I was pushed and reminded to make sure I make every single person in the circle (or class) a bit better, and not to let anyone off the hook too easy (so you all can get ready for that in the future 🙂 !! But overall, it was humbling, engaging and just made me more and more excited about the impact I can have as a CrossFit coach and especially here at The Hut!

The Deadlift BBQ was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who showed up, brought food, and contributed to a really fun evening. It was so nice to gather outside as a gym community. As always, a big congratulations for all the many PRs set both in morning classes and at the BBQ! All that training really works!

Friday 210820 1RM Deadlift

The 1RM Deadlift BBQ is today! Come grill/eat and lift from 4:00-6:30pm, or lift in a morning class and come in the evening to grill/eat/hangout. If you are new to The Hut or have taken time off, you don’t NEED to go for a 1 rep max. In fact, it may be more beneficial for your fitness to get in 5 sets of 5 at a moderate load as you continue to learn and dial in the deadlift technique. Those going for a 1RM are required to have a written plan. No accidental PRs today. Rest 3 minutes or so between heavy lifts and enjoy the fun and supportive atmosphere that always comes with workouts like this! Bring food for the grill and anything you want to share.

Matthew and Peter go Rx/Masters Rx in that heavy DB WOD 🙂

Post new 1RM

Thursday 210819 E3M for 6 Rounds

The Deadlift BBQ is Friday from 4:00 to 6:30pm! Bring food for the grill and anything you’d like to share. The morning classes will run as usual. Come deadlift in a morning class and attend the BBQ for food and fun, or deadlift at the BBQ, either way, we would love to see you all there!


Every 3 minutes for 6 rounds:
5 Front Squats (~65% 1RM)
10 Strict Sit-ups
max rep double unders to the 90 second mark
post total double unders completed and post load used in notes

Intended Stimulus
Start by being ready to go at the top of the 3 minute mark. The fronts squats should be fast and unbroken. Going to heavy here will blunt the stimulus and will prevent you from having enough time to double under. Rack the bar quickly and safely before cranking out 10 fast strict sit-ups. You have now completed the “buy in” portion of the round. Pop up, get to your jump rope quick, and start accumulating double unders. You’ll jump till the 90 second mark and then rest 90 seconds before starting the next round.

Wednesday 210818 AMRAP 10: DB HPC, Deficit Push-up

Talk about intensity with this classic pull+push! 🙂 Your DBs should be heavy here. Not so heavy that you have to break up the 10 reps from the start, but heavy enough that you want to, and might even need to break them up after a few rounds. 10 minutes is going to feel like a LONG time today, so have a plan on the push-ups that allows you to keep accumulating reps without getting to failure too early. Shoot for 1 round every 60-90 seconds and hang on till the end!

Joanna pushes a HEAVY sled. “This should be a benchmark!”

10 minute AMRAP:
10 DB Hang Power Cleans (70/45#)
10 Deficit Push-ups (Hands on DBs)
post completed rounds + reps and any scaling

Tuesday 210817 Decreasing Row + Back Burpee + OH Carry

In this triplet, picking an aggressive yet manageable row pace is going to be key to maximizing intensity (getting the best time YOU are capable of). Expect to spend 4-5 minutes on row #1, 3.5-4.5 minutes on row #2, and 3-4 minutes on row #3. The back burpees and OH carry will take far less time, but the numbers don’t decrease as the rounds go by. Chip away at the back burpees, not sprinting, but not resting during your sets of 20. Find that “constantly moving” pace. You can switch hands as desired on the single arm overhead carry so long as you do not continue to walk as you are switching hands. Try to make your lap around The Hut with only 1 hand switch! Know that this one is long and pace accordingly 🙂

Even at 6am, Matthew sets up with rigid neutral spine for volume deadlifts

For time complete:
1200/1000m Row
20 Back Burpees
100m Single Arm DB Overhead Carry (50/35#)
1000/800m Row
20 Back Burpees
100m SA DB OH Carry (50/35#)
800/600m Row
20 Back Burpees
100m SA DB OH Carry (50/35#)
post finish time and any scaling
