A.
Every 2 minutes, for 10 minutes (5 sets) of:
Bench Press x 3 reps @ 21X1
Rest 45-60 seconds

Take 5-10 minutes to build to 75% of your 1-RM, and perform all 5 sets at 75% of your 1-RM. Focus on a controlled eccentric, pause for 1 second at the chest, and then drive the bar up with as much speed as possible.

B.
“Desire”
For max reps:
5 Minutes of Burpee Box Jump-Overs (24″/20″)

This is a simple test of desire.Touch your chest and thighs to the ground simultaneously, get up, get over the box, fall down and repeat. You may jump laterally over the box, but only your feet may touch the box. Can you get 80 reps in the 5 minutes?

C.
Every 2 minutes, for 12 minutes (3 sets) of:
Station 1 – Supine Ring Rows x 8-10 reps @ 2111
Station 2 – Reverse Snow Angels x 12 reps @ 3030
Station 3 – Hollow Hold x 45-60 seconds

Yes, on the phone. If I scroll through at a snails pace it only does once or twice but if I go quick it does almost every time I touch the screen. Sometimes I think getting through the posts is a ‘secret wod’, ha ha!

Agreed. I’m not sure about iPhones, but if you’re using Chrome on an android phone, you can hit the settings button in the top right and enable desktop mode – that gets rid of the problem!

Yesterday’s. I was too tired from running all over the mountains through the bush and braken, in search of blueberries on Sunday, to work out yesterday.

A. 7:47

30, 10, 10 – I didn’t put the bar down between the sets of 10, but held it for a few deep breaths.
15, 8, 5, 2

B. 25, 30, 35 – for 8 reps. Not true tempo but slow and controlled
SHSPU – 1 rep + 7 negs kip to the top
2 reps + 6 neg kip to the top
8 neg.

A: Worked up to 185 tempo bench. Had a little shoulder irritation so I kept it conservative.
Then did the 5X3 at 165, and 175 for my last set. Wanted to keep the bench controlled.

B: 77RX. I wanted 80 so bad!! I am a taller fellow so I don’t have the fastest Burpees but happy with the effort.

C: Done.

Hi everyone! Just wanted to clarify something that a couple of you have commented on re: today’s workout. So, first thing is that if you see any little “notes” within the actual programming, those come directly from CJ. That’s him giving you insight into his mind for what he’s looking for from a workout. The warmup and workout notes that are posted in the comments on the blog come from me 🙂 Piggy-backing on that, the 80 is not a typo 🙂 haha. So, when CJ (and then I) are determining estimated times, reps, scores, etc., we do this with… Read more »

A. Based off 150#…112.5# that tempo was tough to get down.
B. 57 reps (really wanted 60+) started out lateral and got 16 reps in the first min and then the wheels started to fall off, switched to box facing and just kept moving. The box jump is definitely the limiter for me on this one. I did a 5 min max burpee set on vacation and got 90 reps….
C. Done minding tempo on all!
Ring row x 10 @ 2111
RSA x 12 @ 3030
Hollow Hold x 75s each set

Ok…I’m going to say that you botched it just by doing it…that looks like DEATH to me! But my true guess is that you did all 6, 4, & 2 reps in 2.5 minutes when you were supposed to do them each on the 2.5 min?

😅 it was deadly but that wasn’t it, I messed up the ladder by always going up in weight, it was supposed to go up and down, like 6×120 -> 4×127 -> 2×135, then go down to 6×122 and so on; my partner and I were like “why the hell are we going for reps so freakin heavy?”; basically, we can’t read
