ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT FOR FEBRUARY! Name: Izzy Callison Hometown: Bolivar MO. That’s where I went to high school, but I’ve grown up in a few different towns. Age: 26 When did you first start training at CrossFit Republic? I started training at CFR in November of 2018. Tell us about your sports & fitness background: I played sports throughout my entire life. I was a big soccer fan, then pursued golf alongside soccer and other sports in high school. I ended up getting a golf scholarship. I continued to run or do some form of activity since leaving my “competitive” days. How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? My husband had been doing CrossFit at a different gym for about a year when I finally decided to give it a try. We’re pretty competitive, so I opted to join my sister at CFR over battling it out with him every day. What was your first workout, and how did it go? I have no idea what the workout was, but I was fully prepared to not be able to walk for days afterward. To my surprise, I didn’t need help getting to the bathroom the next morning, but I was still pretty sore! Favorite Movement/Least Favorite Movement: Contrary to popular opinion, my favorite movement might just be snatches. Mainly because I think it’s a really pretty movement when you can actually get it to look seamless and effortless. Least favorite movement is definitely burpees. It’s like a push-up but 10x...

W.O.D. and Endurance Thursday 2/27/20

GYMNASTICS/STRENGTH WORK – 10 MIN CAP For time… 30 Strict Handstand Push-ups *Scaling below Rest exactly 2:00 30 Strict Handstand Push-ups *If you do not finish all of the repetitions under the time cap, add one second per rep not completed onto the time cap as your score for the day. Ex – 10:13 (13 reps not completed) *Scale strict HS Pushups 1:1 with kipping, stacked abmats, 2 min inverted hold (for each set of 30 HSPUs), OR 1:1 Strict Shoulder press 95/65 *Athletes – intensity is the name of the game here. Your score is the power cleans and only the power cleans. You have to work hard to get there… transitions from one movement to the next is key. Also notice how the movement reps decrease, while the weight increases. *Athletes – based on your ability level, you must scale appropriately. This may look like using a smaller box, or maybe bar hops or line jumps instead. It also may mean taking a few reps off, like for example, 4 reps/cals off each movement to have a glimpse of those power cleans. Challenge yourself regardless. You can do it. *Coaches – look at running heats of 10 athletes. Start a second heat at the 4 minute mark, and so on releasing every 4 minutes up to 4 heats, based on how large the class is, so there are enough bikes and rowers throughout the workout individuals. This workout can suit 40 athletes if needed. As many reps as...

Olympic Lifting – 16 minutes Hang Snatch – From the Knee 7 Sets of 2, increasing in weight as you go… *DO NOT LET GO OF THE BAR, the 2 reps must by unbroken *Please notice BAR-FACING burpees.  These are not programmed often due to the space they can take up, but they are a very skilled version of the burpee, and can be done very inefficiently.  Coaches please demo! For time… 9-15-21 reps of: Chest to Bar Pull-Ups Bar-Facing Burpees Overhead Squats 115/85 *Scaling – Chest to bar 1:1 with pullups, jumping pullups, banded pullups, barbell pullups *Scaling – overhead squats – range of motion is the most important thing here.  Use a weight or even a PVC that allows you push your mobility limits, by getting below parallel and staying active in your shoulders as well Post greatest 2 rep snatch weight and time of workout! Extra Work Core work 3 sets not for time of… Pallof Press x 10 reps (2 sec pauses) Rest 30-45 seconds Side Plank on elbow x 45 seconds each side Rest 30-45 seconds Ab-Wheel Rollouts x 6 reps (slow and controlled…the slower, the better) Rest as needed

W.O.D. Wednesday 2/19/20

Strength – 12 minutes Find a 1 rep Strict Shoulder Press *Coaches – Gather athletes up in heats for larger classes.  2nd heat of athletes needs to wait to start until the heat in front of them have all gotten to and achieved 30 calories or more, to make sure the ski ergs are readily available. Keep this going for a 3rd or 4th heat if necessary, sending 10 people at a time (not one athlete here and there, please keep in heats for motivation purposes). For time… 50 Alt. Pistol Squats r/l=2 OR 150 Air Squats 50/35 Calorie Ski Erg 50 Handstand Push-ups (25s/abmat) *Air squats – Unless there is a mobility issue, all squats MUST GO PARALLEL or below to count as a rep. A lot of great athletes in the gym will try to get past this and toe the line, or think they are hitting parallel when they are not.  Please use a med ball or low box behind you and touch each time if needed as guide, as long as it helps you go parallel or below (coaches please demo).  If you are newer or your mobility in the air squat is an issue, please use this time to sink a little lower.  You may even cut the repetitions down if needed to achieve proper form. *Scale Handstand pushups ONLY with DB push press 50/35 today (no other scales as we want the full intensity of this workout to play out correctly) Post total times!...
