CF Cleveland Body Weight Strength Program - Workout "B"

Last Friday you got the first glimpe of the new bodyweight strength routine I've been testing and tweaking over the past month. Today is Workout "B"

If you want to get stronger but not by doing an extensive barbell program, or if you've hit plateaus with your barbell training and need something new to get you out of your rut, this is the program for you. You alternate "A" and "B" workouts two to three times per week, with extremely intense hill sprint & prowler sprint workouts on alternate days.

There will be an alternate workout available for those of you who need their CF Metcon fix!

CrossFit Workout - Thursday 9/26/13

Pause Front Squats, find your 2 rep max - no racks

Start with a light bar and add weight each set to find your 2 rep max, with holding a full 2 second pause at the bottom of each rep.  Do not increase weight unless you are able to reach full depth and solid form (footwork and body position) for both reps.

Last week we did pause overhead squats.  Today it's pause front squats.  These pause squats are helpful in improving your heavy squat snatches and clean, getting you comfortable in the bottom position.

Warmup: 1000 meter row & 3 sets of 5 reps of front squats with an empty bar
Mobility: On whiteboard
Cool down:  Trainer's choice

CrossFit Workout - Thursday 9/19/13

Pause Overhead Squat x 2 reps, find your max - 10 sets minimum

Begin with an empty bar, 45lb-M/15lb-W and perform two overhead squats with a full 2 second pause at the bottom of each rep.  Increase weight each set to find your 2 rep max. Do not increase weight if you can not reach full depth(at least 1" below parallel) and hold solid form for at least two full seconds at the bottom of the squat.

Perform at least 10 sets of 2 reps in total, even if all sets are with an empty bar.  Rest and mobilize as needed between sets.  All reps/sets start from the floor, no racks.

Warmup:  2000 meter row & 50 overhead squats-pvc, any combo

*** Tonight, 9/13, at 6:00pm

We have a Super Sweet "Friday the 13th" shit storm of a workout scheduled for 6:00pm. Two of my old Hapkido training partners/instructors will be on hand to give us different kind of beat down this week. If you came to the Self Defense WOD a few weeks ago, you got a taste of their kicking drills that dusted more than a few of our members in just a few short minutes. 

This workout is open to all members, past and present. It will require agility, co-ordination, flexibility, accuracy, balance, endurance and speed. That's 7 of the 10 domains of fitness we train and seek positive adaptation. Most important, it's fun as hell and everyone can participate.

You may bring a guest, just let us know in advance. No charge - FREE, be there! Please reply to this post if you are coming and if you are bringing a guest.
