Today’s warm-up was a bit more intense than usual. First, we started off with 3 rounds of 500m Row and 10 Burpees. That will certainly get your whole body moving, huh? After that, we did a Jump-Rope workout where technique focused on single jumps, alternating legs, 2 hops per leg and finally double-unders. Last but not least, we finished out the warm-up with some agility drills and sprints.

The workout today was a 4-rounder with Wall Balls, Ring Rows and Box Jumps. In order to start introducing gymnastics rings into more workouts, we’ll be starting with two of the more basic movements; Ring Push-Ups and Ring Rows. Note, I said more basic, definitely not “easy”!

Workout of the Day:
4 Rounds for Time of-
15 Wall Balls / 15 Ring Rows / 15 Box Jumps

Athlete Results:
Kristin (14lb Wall Ball)- 13:12

When the workout was done, we ended the day with 3 rounds of:
10 Back Extensions / 10 GHD Sit-Ups

Both athletes tonight are looking incredibly strong with their “to-parallel” GHD Sit-Ups. That means in small doses, we’ll be able to start increasing that range of motion to get them closer to touching the ground each rep. Yay for progress!
