BODY ARMOR

3 Giant Sets:
14 Barbell Front Rack Box Step-Ups (20″) (Video)
Max Strict Pull-Ups
Max Dumbbell Pushups (Video)
Rest 2:00-3:00 between sets.

 

Athlete’s choice on the dumbbell box step ups, but we are looking for a loading that allows us to accomplish all 20 reps unbroken. Free to build throughout the three sets.

On these box step ups, we are looking to pull with the leg leg (on the box), as opposed to push. With a pulling motion, we are going to activate more of the posterior chain (hamstrings and glutes), which is our aim in this movement. Be wary of our torso angle as well, which can pitch forward excessively as we stand. Imagine two dots – one on your shoulder, and one on your hip. And both dots must rise together as we stand.

On the strict pull-ups, we are looking to find at least 5 reps per round. Let’s band the pull-ups as required to meet that standard, as the repetitions is the stimulus we are after today. On the dumbbell pushups, we are looking for a similar standard – looking for at least 5 repetitions per round. Completing these to a pushups from our knees, or by removing the dumbbells and completing regular floor pushups, are both valid modifications.

SNATCH PULL + HANG POWER SNATCH

On the Minute x 10:
1 Snatch High Pull (Video)
2 Hang Power Snatches

 Sets #1+2 – 40% of 1RM Snatch

Sets #3+4 – 45% of 1RM Snatch

Sets #5+6 – 50% of 1RM Snatch

Sets #7+8 – 55% of 1RM Snatch

Sets #9+10 – 60% of 1RM Snatch

  • In the snatch high pull, we are looking to keep our feet flat on the floor, with the drive coming through our mid-foot at extension. By keeping our feet flat on the floor, we can focus on maintaining the weight in the proper position (directly under the ankle bone) throughout the pull.
  • On the hang power snatches, we are looking for the aggressive punch out trained in the previous portion, the snatch-grip push jerk. Same big points apply – weight back on the heels, with the hips slightly back. Weights are intended to be on the lighter side to dial in technique.

“ELBOW GREASE”

Alternating EMOM x 14 (7 Round):

BODY ARMOR

Move through this with a purpose. These are not traditional conditioning sets, but the value lies in our approach to these sets – not just moving through them. Let’s make ourselves work.

3 Giant Sets:
10 Push Ups *can stack plates to increase difficulty.
30s Max Double-Unders
10 Deadlifts
30s Max Double-Unders
20 Dumbbell Bent Over Rows, 10 each side (Video)

On our “Giant Sets”, we are looking to move from station to station with as little rest as possible. Rest as needed between sets, but aim to not exceed more than 2:00. On the weight selections – we are looking for a moderate load – something we can cycle unbroken on all three rounds, but challenging. Free to climb in weight between rounds, but technique is far more important here than loading.

RECOVERY
3 Rounds, Not For Time:
30 Band Pull-Aparts (Video)
10-15 Second L-Sit off Pull-Up Bar (Video)

Progressions for the L-Sit:
1) Knees up and legs bent at 90 degrees
2) Knees up and legs bent at 45 degrees, or starting to extend away from the body
Choose a level that we can hold for 20 seconds unbroken on the first round, and we will build upon this in future sessions.
