Join us for the open intramural party at 7pm! Come learn about what we’re doing for the Open this year and join a team!
Move Steady Through: 30 Cossack Squats, 30 Russian KB Swings (53/35), 15 Fast Burpees Over the KB
Cossack squats should be slow and controlled, gradually increasing range of motion throughout the set. May alternate between keeping your straight leg-foot flat on the floor and pointing your toe to the sky. Emphasize aggressive hip extension with the RKB swing.
Mobility Recommendation: Floss or Roll Achilles and Calves for 2:00 per side
Sumo Deadlift High Pull (SDLHP): 20-20-20 (3×20)
Looking for weights that are heavier than in a metcon, so although it is encouraged, unbroken is not 100% required. This should force you to use your hips and not pull too early with your arms (a pretty typical problem when the weights are light).
AMRAP 12 Minutes: 12 Box Jumps (24/20), 12 Overhead Squats (95/65), 12 Box Jumps (24/20), 12 SDLHP (95/65)
OHS and SDLHP should be unbroken if possible. Choose weights so you can hang onto unbroken sets, at least to start.
