W.O.D. and Endurance Thursday 6/3/21

DAILY MINDSET
**“Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
**
There is a difference between one who is “there”, and one who is “being there”.

Many of us here are parents. You would understand more than most how being present is everything. A parent can go to their kids’ soccer game, and sit in the stands on their phone, awaiting the end. Or they can go to the game, and passionately be there. Not by yelling or cheering, but by intently wanting to be there. One is “just there”. The other is “being there”.

We can go on a family vacation because, “it’s what families do once a year”, or we can go on a family vacation because we want to spend more time with each other without the distractions of our daily lives. From the outside looking in, it may or may not be as visibly obvious as the effects it leaves.

The obvious application here is in our training. If we were to go through the motions in “Fran” (21-15-9 Thruster/Pull-Up), with a relaxed, 15:00 completion time… there is very little benefit.

The less obvious is our daily encounters outside the gym. Where we may be going through the motions. Is it a lack-luster goodbye to our significant other before leaving for work? Is it greeting an employee with a “How are you?” even though we don’t mean it?

It’s okay to discover these in our daily lives. They happen, as we become comfortable in a routine. Doesn’t mean they should stay that way.

*Complete a set every 3 minutes to maximize the weight used and strength gainzzz

WORKOUT BRIEF [0:00-5:00]
STIMULUS
Lift heavy. Going below parallel.
Athletes will lift every 3:00. This workout will run for 30:00.
Failed sets count as a set.

CLASS LOGISTICS
**Limited Equipment Options:**
Team up into partners or groups of three:
Ath #1: Lifts at 0:00
Ath #2: Lifts at 1:00
Ath #3: Lifts at 2:00
Ath #1: Lifts at 3:00
And, so on…

If racks are not available, change the movement to a Front Squat from the floor with a :5 pause in the bottom. This will be a lighter load, but the pause will make it more challenging.

[DAILY VIDEO](youtu.be/aZKLYhqQc70)
8 Empty Barbell Back Squats
3 with a :3 pause at the bottom + 5 Back Squats w/ no pause
*(Did they get low enough? A general rule for this can be “if there’s doubt, there’s no doubt!”)*

8 Loaded Back Squats (light)
3 with a :3 pause at the bottom + 5 Back Squats w/ no pause

*If sharing a barbell reduce reps to 2 reps with a pause and 3 with no pause

WORKOUT [20:00-50:00]
STRATEGY (FOR ATHLETES)
Know what load you would like to lift today and work backwards.

1. 135
2. 155
3. 185*
4. 205
5. 225
6. 245*
