P1 rows at least 100m, jumps off once meters stop accumulating and does # of Burpees equal to number of meters over 100. As soon as P1 jumps off to do Burpees, P2 jumps on, hits Menu/Back then “Just Row” and begins their turn. Back and forth until each has rowed 1000 meters. Time ends at end of last burpee.
Partner 1200 m run (one lap, mile course without last 400). Guy/guy must take at least 45 lbs. Guy/girl 35, and girl/girl at least 25. Plates, balls, kettlebells, split in two or just one, doesn’t matter. Split it up, hand it back and forth, do watever it takes. Time is up after both teammates cross line with their load.

In this workout you move from each of five stations after a minute.The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
After 7 min general warm up, spend about 20 minutes working on something of your choosing. The coach will be there to assist you accomplish your goals. If you don’t have something specific you want to work on, then practicing rope climbs or pistols is a place to start.

Keep your goals in mind. Plan to succeed. Sign up for class in advance; it helps keep you accountable. Send an email to your partner just to encourage them. If you completed your week one goal, make one specific goal to complete this week. We still have 2 months to complete our goals, but we aren’t going to procrastinate and we are going to make progress each week. Even if we fall short of our intention, or life takes an unexpected turn, we refocus and redouble our efforts. People are setting PRs, getting of medicine, walking in with more confidence, and it’s great to see. Let’s use this momentum to keep pushing on toward our goals.
We are all afraid of failure, but do we cower in the face of fear, or do we put ourselves out there? Steve just told me the story of someone he knew who entered their first grappling tournament and was so excited, trained really hard, invited all his friends and family, and then got beat first round in single-elimination. That being said, I’m not sure about the time (probably afternoon), but I may very well get beat my first round of my first tournament in the beginner division, but I’m going to try, and you’re all welcome to come and watch :). Let’s all be brave in taking new steps in our lives.
For the workout, not looking to set a PR here unless you’ve never done a 1RM Deadlift. Just try to get to your old 1RM. Coming soon is a new opportunity to set a new PR. If haven’t been training had for 6 months, really scale the load on the workout.

Kickboxing at 12 is a great workout. You don’t have to get hit in the fact, in fact, we just hit mitts and shadow box, and trust me it’s a great workout.
If you’re one of those people who feel a little uncomfortable with the Olympic Lifting movements (there’s a lot out there!), then try one of our Oly Classes. It’s specifically designed to improve your safety, movement, and understanding of the different lifts. It makes actually doing those lifts much more enjoyable and eventually even fun. Trust me, I went through the journey myself.
Today for example, Oly Class will be perfecting the overhead lifts. At 11 o’clock, we’ll start with the strict press and work to a heavy single, then push press, then push jerk, then split jerk. How many dips do I do? Come find out. Also, even if you’re already pretty good at these lifts, there’s always room for improvement.
At the end of Oly if there’s time, 3 sets of 20 GHD sit Ups and ME -2 Strict Pull Ups
Class at 10:
1RM Bench Press
ME Push Ups (chest only touches ground)
rest 2 min
ME Strict Pull Ups (sub ring rows)
rest 2 min
