Today's WOD is a modification of the Northeast Masters Throwdown event to take place a week from today in Connecticut.  Sessions will start at the top of the hour.  There will be approximately 10 minutes of warm-up, 10 minutes to go over the specific workout instruction, an 8 minute WOD, 10 minutes of rest and then a 10 minute WOD.  That leaves us with 12 minutes for "margin for error" or cool down/stretching.  The WOD will be two workouts:



AFAHP or 8 Min Time Cap:
400 Meter Run
25 KB Swings(24/16kg)
25 Burpees
25 KB Swings
25 Burpees

Scoring System: any reps not completed will be added to your score at
the end of the workout. Your score will be 8 mins + 1 sec per rep for
each movement not completed. (e.g. 8 mins + 25 reps = 8.25 as your

Notes: AFAHP=As Fast As Humanly Possible.  The run will be optional if it snows.

There will be approximately 10 minutes of rest before WOD#2 begins


10 min amrap of:
Hang Squat Cleans (115/80 lbs.)
HR Push Ups
Box Jumps (Step Ups/Downs Allowed)(24/20")

Notes: Yes, you do 3 reps of each exercise to start.  Then you do 6 reps of each exercise.  Then you do 9 reps of each exercise.  Have you spotted the pattern yet?  Yes, indeed, each round of the workout goes up by 3 reps.  Don't concern yourself with having to do infinity…there isn't enough time in 10 minutes.



Thanks to John H. for suggesting today's WOD!  






 5 Heavy Lifts To Increase Mobility    "As a strength coach of baseball players, I needed the biggest bang
for my buck – hip strength and mobility in one exercise. I
thankfully have too many athletes, too few man-hours, and too little
space to spend 20 minutes per session on mobility work.

The answer? Exercises that make us strong and flexible at the same time."—Dan Blewett for TNation.com
