WOD Summary

Please look at Wodify for the specific daily WOD announcements. They are available a week in advance. We will no longer post full WODs here.

This week’s Strength cycle schedule:
We are into the 11th week of a 16 week strength cycle based on the Juggernaut system. This is the final week of the 3rd phase and we’ll be maxing out reps at an 85% of our 1RM. What we like about this system is that it is specifically designed to complement other activities/sports.

We are past the 1/2 way mark. 2 left! 20.4 will be announced Thursday evening. We now have already had a lot of movements, and given the history of the Open, we will most likely not see them repeated in the remaining WODs. But you never know! Be prepared to see Pull-ups/C2B/MUs.

Monday starts off with a longer chipper. From there we switch to a Tabata on Tuesday. We tax your oxidative/cardio system on Monday, your phosphagen and glycolytic systems on Tuesday, back to your oxidative/cardio system on Wednesday and Thursday, and Friday goes back to your glycolytic system. Wednesday is a WOD that will keep you moving and gasping for air. Thursday’s couplet will be a burn. Friday will test your ability sprint and recharge/recover. On Saturday we will be crushing 20.4!

We hope you enjoy this week of functional, constantly varied workouts done at an appropriate level of intensity. As always – train smart!
