Thursday, 3/22/12

GAMES WOD: 12pm today. Please come on time if you need extra time to warm-up. We’ll be sharing space with the noon class and may run over 1pm in order to run heats.

Warren, in the bottom of a clean looking very like a front squat OR a the bottom of the thruster. Ideally, to make the transition overhead as smooth as possible, you'd want to develop the flexibility to grip the bar all the way around with your fingers, while still maintaining a good angle at the elbows (parallel to the floor is best). If you don't have that yet, it's ok! But working toward it will dramatically change your work capacity and, by extension, your chance at being injured less.

SELF-MYOFASCIAL RELEASE: Foam Roll, 5 minutes.
MOBILITY: Spiderman Stretch off the Box, 1 minute each side. Wall Quad Stretch, 1 minute each side. Adductor Mobs, 1 minute each side. Gastroc/Soleus Stretch, 1 minute each side. Band Assisted Rack Stretch (band around the whole elbow), 1 minute each side.
DYNAMIC WARM-UP: 3 minutes of: Leg Swings, Hip Swings, Arm Swings, Jump Squats as needed.

*If you have already completed the workout and are training today – bring your head phones and complete, 6 x 100m Row Sprints for time. Record each of your times.*
