Upgrading the experience

by carney on March 1, 2014

Every WOD (workout of the day) has a “prescribed” setup, where each exercise is specified and distance, load, range of motion, etc. is pre-determined. The prescription is set for the highest performance level of the athletes in our box. Since not all members can complete the WOD as prescribed, many will scale the loads and/or volume down to their current fitness level. However, scaling up, or “upgrading the experience” as we like to call it, is also an option. If the athlete is able to handle a heavier load, taller box, or more complex movement, then this option is perfectly allowable, giving an athlete the ability to challenge themselves in new ways.

Workout of the Day

DG
Complete as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes of:
8 toes to bar
8 dumbbell thruster, 35 lb
12 dumbbell walking lunge, 35 lb

Class Notes:
The class will be divided into 2 teams. Though each athlete will have their own station and will move through at their own pace, their score will be contributing to their team’s final score. Additionally, Saturday classes are being stretched to 90 minutes in length. Since “DG” takes only 10 minutes, there will be a 30 minute mobility session following the WOD at 10:00 AM.
