***Today endurance and the daily workout will be the same
“Your actions speak so loudly that I can’t hear what you’re saying.”
It’s not about what we talk about, but what we tolerate.
When we think of our greatest role models, those we truly look up to in life, there’s a consistent commonality we’ll notice… their action under adversity. They achieved something great, under incredibly hard circumstances. They overcame a specific challenge in their darkest hour. And for that, we remember them.
Our identity isn’t shaped by the good times… but the challenging ones. In those moments, it’ll never be about what we say, but what we do.
Conditioning WOD – 24 minutes
On the 4:00 x 6 Rounds:
21 Kettlebell Swings (70/55)
400 Meter Run
*Score = Enter times for all rounds. The score is the slowest round.
WORKOUT BRIEF [0:00-4:00]
6 rounds of 4:00 intervals.
Score will be the slowest round.
One round should take ~3:30-4:00.
This will leave ~1:00 of rest before starting the next interval.
Important: a 3:30 round should not be an all out effort. If it is, the work will not be completed with the 4:00 period and we will miss the intention of the workout
It will be important to scale to consistently achieve :30 of rest in between rounds.
Adjust the reps and distance on the run to achieve a 3:30 (or under) round across all 6 rounds.
12 Pull-Ups should take less than :30 and in one set, maybe two, sets.
Modifiy the repetitions to achieve this. Movement mofidifications are also encouraged (i.e., Jumping Pull-Up or Ring Row).
21 KBS’s should take less than 1:00 and be unbroken.
For today, a 400m Run should take ~2:00 or under. This should also not be an all out effort. If it is, we will not have enough time to recover for the remaining intervals. Modify distance as needed.

SPECIFIC WARM-UP / TEACHING [10:00-23:00]
FOCUS: THE SWING & THE SPINE – Finding optimal end ranges DAILY VIDEO
There is an optimal swing for each athlete for kipping movements and swinging movements. A bigger swing does not necessarily mean a better one. In both the Pull-Up and KBS, we will look how to identify an optimal swing by assessing the spine and elbows throughout the movement
3 Strict Pull-Ups or 5 Jumping Pull-Ups
5 Laying Flat to Hollow Body
10 Kipping Swings
2 Swings + 1 Pull-Up + 2 Swings (focus on the push wway at the top to reset the kip) / Train Track: 5 Negative Strict Pull-Ups
5 Pull-Ups (Kipping or Strict)
Kettlebell Swing (4:00)
Mimic the Swing without the KB – highlight the the torso angle at the bottom and the spine/pelvis postion at the top.
6 Half Swings (shoulder level)
6 Half Swings to High Pull DEMO
6 Full Swings (3 w/ pause overhead + 3 with no pause)
6 Full Swings (assess the descent of the swing)
Increase the speed every :30
the third build-up should be ‘game pace’
PRACTICE ROUND & BATHROOM BREAK [23:00-28:00]
1 Round – w/ workout weight
10 Kettlebell Swings
200 Meter Run
STRATEGY/EFFICIENCY TIPS (FOR ATHLETES)
The Pull-Ups do not need to be unbroken, but they shouldn’t exceed :30. If grip is not a factor, hold on for the 12 reps.
If grip will greatly effect the KBS, break the Pull-Ups.
For the KBS, the loading should allow for unbroken reps. If we break it must still be under 1:00 if we are to earn :30 of rest after the run.
We can push hard “inside” the gym and pace the run.
The run can be viewed as an “active” recovery and prepare you for the next interval.
As the score is your slowest round, find a sustainable pace from the start.
