After going back through the blog from last Sunday, it felt like I had just given up on the team workouts.  I know that you guys absolutely love these days and I am going to make sure that they stay enjoyable for everyone.  Before they get published, each team WOD gets looked-over and optimized where needed.

Gotta keep you guys on your toes,

Pre WOD: Pull Ups

Level 1: Deadhang Pull Up work in any way possible (bands / jumping…)
Level 2: Learning to kip (only to kip)
Level 3: Kipping Pull Ups
Level 4: Work on strict L – Pull Ups or Weighted Pull Ups for strength

This is to be done as EMOTM for 12 minutes. (Pick your own reps)

WOD:  5 rounds for time of:

15 Double Unders
8 Shoulder to Overhead (105/70)
15 Double Unders
8 Over the bar Burpees
15 Double Unders

Rest 30 seconds between each round



Today is all about putting your skills to check.  How are your Pull Ups coming along?  How quickly can you transition those S2OH reps?  How fast can you commit 45 Double Unders?  If your skills are not up to far, then today is a fantastic day for practice.  If you have the means to go quickly, you should absolutely try and blast through this workout.

This should be good,

Make sure you talk about Endurance…

Make sure you remind everyone that the evening Endurance workouts will be taking place at the Fenway track today.  Also, remember to put on the blog that they should bring water, towels, and all of the other nonsense you usually put up.  Don’t forget to include the fact that next week will not have outdoor Endurance classes.  One last thing, you should definitely erase all of those inappropriate jokes from tomorrow’s blog.

Those are bad,

Remember that time the world was going to end…

A couple of Decembers ago, some calendar was finished and a few people lost their mind.  Some guy named John starred in a movie about it.  There was something about the Milky Way equator and the winter solstice becoming aligned.  Anyway, this workout is the team version of what was dedicated to that completely normal day.

Good story huh,

Please note that the 90 minute Endurance classes will be taking place at the Harvard Track on Saturday (6/27/15).  Bring everything you need!

Team (3) WOD: 20 min AMRAP of:

1 Burpee
1 Ground to Overhead (95/65)
1 Pull Up

Each person does each exercise 1 time and when they are back to their starting exercise, you add 1 rep

The team cannot move on to a different exercise until everyone is done


Team WODs…

We have done a lot of these and the Google spreadsheet that contains them (only the weekend workouts) was started back in January 2014.  With almost 50 different workouts, that sheet was completed twice through during the weekends last year.  For 2015, just about every single one of those workouts was complete remixed or completely changed to come up with some fresh, new WODs.  Those remixes have since been exhausted.  So, starting this July, we are going to go back to those workouts we were doing way back in January of last year.  Once we finish the list (almost 90 different WODs) they will be re-remixed!

Got a lot of gems in there,
