Team W.O.D. Thursday 5/20/21

*Daily and Endurance WOD will be the same today!


**“Work your land” – Tim Storey**

If the farmer focuses on the fruit, and ignores the root, the tree will never grow.

To “work our land” is the fundamental understanding that our actions today are the seeds we are planting for tomorrow. Every seed we plant, whether positive or negative, is a vote for who we become.

And much like the farmer’s field, this is a continuous process. A successful harvest last year doesn’t mean the farmer can ease off the basics next year. Regardless of the accomplishments, accolades, successes… every day we must work our land.

**The theme for today is Vertical Torso in both the Power Clean and Push Jerk – [Instruction](

**Focus: Find the Dip then Jump**
* Build speed from mid-shin to the finish (“getting tall”).
* At mid-thigh, accelerate through the vertical torso (bottom of the dip) and jump hard!

**Movement Prep**
* 5 x Deadlift to Mid-Thigh to Bottom of the Dip – *(Coaches Focus: aligning the shoulder over the hip. These two body parts should be stacked on top of each other)*
* 5 x Hang Power Clean – *(Coaches Focus: Do they achieve vertical torso before the jump?)*
* 5 x Power Clean – *(Coaches Focus: Same)*

PUSH JERK (5:00)
**Focus: Find the Dip then Jump**
* An upright torso leads to a vertical bar path.
* We find the dip by slightly sending the hips back and pushing the knees slightly forward. Remind your athletes that a “dip” is not a “squat”

**Movement Prep**
* 5 Dip & Hold – *(Coaches Focus: Vertical Torso)*
* 5 Dip & Drive (Fast) – *(Coaches Focus: Same)*
* 5 Push Press – *(Coaches Focus: Same)*
