CrossFit WOD, April 18, 2022



8:00 AMRAP
30sec Jump Rope
10 American Dumbbell Swings
10 Goblet Squats
:30sec Handstand Hold
:30/:30 Banded Front Rack Stretch

Specific Prep

Front Squat @ 22X1; 6-8 reps x 2-3 sets @ 40-50-60% of 1RM



Front Squat (@22X1; 6 reps x 5 sets; every 2:30)

Start @ 60%, build each set if form and tempo are perfect

Specific Prep

Devils Press: Chest must touch the floor. DB’s can go between the legs (suggested) or go on the outside of the legs as we bring the DB’s through extension to overhead.
3 burpees (w/ hands in DBs - working chest to ground)
3 Dual DB Swings
3 Devil's press

DB Thruster: We want to see the dumbbells on a good front rack position with the elbows up and pointed out in front of the body. Work to keep vertical out of the squat and drive forcefully through the ground to create a strong vertical drive as we come out of squat
3 Dual DB FRont Squats w/ 2s hold at bottom
3 Dual DB Front Squats -no pause
3 DB Thrusters



Undertow (2 Rounds for reps)

2 Rounds of 6:00 AMRAP + 3:00 Rest
24 Double Unders
8 Dumbbell Thrusters 35/25#
4 Devils Press 35/25#

Open/RX+: DBs 50/35#
Goal: 3+ Rounds/Set
We are looking to stay consistent through each AMRAP. By breaking this into two AMRAPs instead of having one 12:00 AMRAP we can increase the intensity and focus from one set to the next on ways to improve and pace better as well as teach our body how to recover between efforts.

48 Single Unders

EXTRA Competitor WOD

Row Conditioning (A) – AM Session
The row session today is based off the 10k row and should be more aerobic in nature. We are not looking for crazy challenging efforts here today, but rather steady state work.

Weightlifting (B&C) – Before WOD
For the weightlifting piece, we are building directly off last Monday’s Snatch as we look to keep building percentages until we will hit 3 weeks of percentages in the 80%+ range.
