Workout of the Day For time complete: 21 Push Press (60/45kg) 750m Row 18 Push Press 500m Row 15 Push Press 250m Row 12 Push Press Record time and load compare to Sept 15, 2020
Intended Stimulus Here we go with a classic push+pull couplet! The ‘pull’ just so happens to be a monostructural row (though some may bike) and the ‘push’ is a powerful hip driven push press. Find a load where you can get the 21, 18, and 15 push presses done in 3 sets or fewer. And remember, this WOD starts and ends on the barbell! Hear this loud and clear today… do not blow yourself up during the first 750m row. Push the pace for sure, but that first row cannot be a sprint. Save that for the 500m and 250m!
Every 2 minutes for 10 rounds: 2 Back Squats (AHAP) post loads used and any scaling
Build in load during the warm-up AND across the first 3 or so working sets. Experienced lifters should aim for 90-92% 1RM. Other should should find something heavy for the day and stick with it. There will be limited rest between sets so it will feel a bit different than our 5×5 day! Intentionally take your rest, sit on a box, focus on your next set, and then be ready to go when the coach counts down 3, 2, 1 lift!
Here we have the newest Girl WOD from CrossFit HQ, “Grettel”. This one is fast and furious. Think get to the bar and either go unbroken and cycled clean and jerks OR really fast single with no hesitation. Same goes for the 3 bar facing burpees. Get to the ground and get through them quick so you can bounce right up after #3 and grab your barbell for another 3 clean and jerks. This should be pretty short so scale the load accordingly. Have fun and PUSH THE PACE! Have a line on the ground or 10 marks you can erase to ensure you don’t lose track of what rounds you’re on! Watch reigning fittest woman on earth Tia Toomey take on Grettel HERE!
This workout starts with 15 minutes of SLIPS. It’s an excellent way to practice specific skills while simultaneously getting the body warmed up and ready to workout. SLIPS stands for Scales, L-sits, Inversions, Planks, and Stretching. If you’ve been with us for any length of time these shouldn’t be new to you. That’s because we use pieces of SLIPS in warm-ups nearly every day! During the start of class today you’ll get 3 minutes of each component. Below is a video from CrossFit HQ showing very basic variations of SLIPS being performed at home. Check it out for some ideas and for some soothing music.

An important reminder that at 9:00am this coming Saturday, June 26th, we have a 5k run/WOD event with Lululemon Malibu! Participants will get some free gear to product test. There will not be classes held at The Hut this Saturday. Instead, we will meet at Lululemon Malibu at 9am sharp for a group warm-up, an overview of the course, and some meet and greet. To participate, you need to RSVP in advance by clicking HERE!Let us know asap if you need a rower or a bike (you can also write your name up on the wall in the small room of The Hut to reserve one of these).
Tabata these (20 seconds work/10 seconds rest for 8 rounds): -Calorie Row -Strict Toes to Bar -Double Unders -Calorie Bike *1 minute transition between movements* *may be completed in any order to ensure all athletes get to bike ;)* post total reps and any scaling

3 rounds for time: 600m Run 30 Box Jumps (24/20″) 30 Push-ups post finish time and any scaling
Intended Stimulus When all is said and done, for most, this one is going to come down to the sets of 30 push-ups. From the start, break these up into small sets that you can separate by very short rests. If you don’t think you can maintain sets of 5 or so for 30 reps, consider scaling the volume to 20 reps per set. The run course will have an inherent psychological challenge… we will run 400m + 200m. Challenge yourself to keep a fast pace even as you hit the front of The Hut for your 400 and head back out for the 200. You can do it! Don’t rush on the box jumps, just chip away one rep at a time without going out too fast. The box height should be something that you can make rep after rep without hesitation. In other words, it shouldn’t scare you!
Join us this coming Saturday, June 26th, at 9am for a 5k run/WOD event with Lululemon Malibu! Participants will get some free gear to try out AND this single modality monostructural workout fits perfectly within our scheduled programming 🙂 Please note, there will not be classes held at The Hut this Saturday.

And to take your mind off all that running, show up for class Monday and do something very different, like Fran 😉
“Fran” 21-15-9 reps for time: Thrusters (43/30kg) Pull-ups Record time, load and any scaling
Compare to Aug 12 2020, Feb 13 2020, July 30 2019, Nov 27 2018, Oct 31 2017, July 21 2017, “Fran 55” on May 17 2017, April 19 2017, July 22 2016, May 18 2016, October 8 2015, September 25 2014, April 1 2014, Feb 21 2014, October 29 2013, May 24 2013, Dec 31 2012, May 21 2012, Aug 11 2011, Dec 28 2010, Aug 30 2010, July 13 2010, Feb 12 2010, Dec 2 2009
Intended Stimulus Fran is a classic example of a high intensity workout. The goal is to finish in under 7 minutes. If you have a compare to time that is around 6-7 minutes, re-test it with the same load. Go up in load IF your last attempt was under 5 minutes. Realistically, you should be able to complete the round of 21 in 3 sets max, and the round of 15 in a maximum of 3 sets as well. That goes for both the thrusters and the pull-ups. Again, today needs to be fast! Only a few breaks throughout the entire workout is the way to go. On the thrusters, remember that you’re more efficient when you keep the bar high on the shoulder until right after the hip forcefully opens. Then, when you are bringing the bar back down to the shoulders, wait to initiate the next squat until right when the barbell touches down on your shoulders. Efficiency on these 2 movements is key to being able to break off large sets and in turn, finish fast!
We have a regular Saturday schedule this weekend with classes at 8:00 and 9:00am. Please reserve your spot in advance on MindBody. NEXT Saturday there is a CFM x Lululemon Malibu event in place of classes at The Hut. Check the front door of The Hut for some info and check Monday’s blog post for all the details!
