  • Repeating a Hero from last years “Hero month”. This one is a doozy!! Don’t be fooled by the lightweight or small rep scheme. If you scale correctly this will bite! Get out to an uncomfortable (not unsustainable) pace & try to hang onto it. Compare to last year (link below).

‘Hero’ Month is now in full flow!

Much like the named ‘Girl’ WoDs, Hero WoDs are Benchmark workouts that are created by CrossFit HQ to honour certain men & women from all lines of public service from all parts of the world who tragically lost their lives in the line of duty doing their bit to preserve freedom in our society.

During the month of August you will be getting a good dose of some of the finest & hardest Hero WoDs from HQ. 

So do yourself a favour & make sure you do you your best to keep yourselves in a recovered state. 

Mobilise lots, eat & drink as cleanly as possible. Get in early to properly prepare. Stay back late to throughly cool down & cheer on the next class.

Lets enjoy the ride & see out this last month of winter in style!!

Strength WoD: Come On Down!!

For Load:

Back Squat

5 – 4 – 3 – 2 – 1

.

  • Heavy Day!!
  • The decsending rep scheme continues forth. Form withstanding try to build the weight on each set. Strive for NO MISSES at all across the work sets. No specific tempo except for the “slower down. faster up” ethos.
  • This is the high-bar back squat. Keep your chest up, keep your heels down and drive through the middle – NO good morning style squats!
  • Use spotters on all sets where you aren’t sure of or the number is s new attempt for that rep scheme.
  • Hold the standards. Form is priority as always.
  • Have a look at your recent 5-5-5-5-5 workout to plan your numbers for today.
  • Scale As needed.

With “Hero Month” in full flow this video release from CFHQ seems quite timely to remind us that Hero WoDs do carry some weight to them & each one has a special meaning.

Caution: Quite a bit of swearing in the vid.

Partner Hero WoD: “Ricky”

 Complete As Many Rounds As Possible in 20 Minutes

of:

10 Pull Ups

5 DB/KB Deadlifts (Heavy)

8 Push Press (62.5 / 42.5 kg)

 

  • This WoD was created to honour U.S. Army Sergeant William “Ricky” Rudd, 27, of Madisonville, Kentucky, assigned to the 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, based in Fort Benning, Georgia. Click here to see the first time this posted on .Com & read about Ricky.
  • Today we will attack this Hero WoD in teams of 2. This will allow us to inject faster pace to our movements & also allow us to increase the dose of intensity too as compared to if you did this solo for a 20 minute slog.
  • One partner will complete an entire round then swap over to their teammate. Earn your rest time by motoring through your round fast & moving well. When you’re working use the fact someone is waiting for you to spur you forward and make it uncomfortable pace wise.

Hero WoD: “Marston” 

.

 Complete As Many Rounds As Possible in 20 Minutes

of:

1 Deadlift (184 / 129 kg)

10 Toes To Bar

15 Burpee Over Bar

 

  • This WoD was created to honour Special Warfare Operator 1st Class William Blake Marston, 31, of Concord, New Hampshire. Click here to see the first time this posted on .Com & read about Marston.
  • Relatively new Hero WoD today. This. Is. HEAVY!! Don’t be deceived by the fact its only 1 rep each time. Your midline is going to get smoked over through all your flexing in your toes to bar & your repeated extending in the Burpees. This will mean your need to BRACE is more important than ever!!
  • DON’T just rely on a belt. Learn to brace your midsection properly and set up for that lift properly. By rights that one solitary rep will likely start consuming 30-40 seconds per round. Don’t rush it!!
  • If the weight is too heavy (and for a very very large contingent of the Box it is!) scale to somewhere between 85-92% of your 1RM deadlift. We DO NOT want to see you putting 100% or more on the bar today!
  • Lets go!!
  • Hold the standards. Form is priority as always.
  • Scale As needed.

Strength WoD: Countdowning

For Load:

Thruster

10 – 8 – 6 – 4 – 2

.

  • Heavy Day!!
  • You may have noticed a theme in some of your recent strength days with this rep scheme. It is an elegant way of adding volume and that all important time under tension as well as act as a fantastic “warm up”, if you wanna coin a term, to ramp up for those low-rep heavier sets at the end.
  • You may look and think “5 sets, is that all we got?” If you fire it that way you’ve already lost the point of the workout! Come on in and we will show you the way!
  • Lift large AND lift HEAVY! Rest as needed between sets.
  • The idea is (form withstanding) to increase load on every set. Only 5 sets to record – NO MISSES!
  • Oh and expect some postural stamina work after the work sets too. Don’t forget to breathe!
  • Fun day at the office!! Lets go!!
  • Hold the standards. Form is priority as always.
  • Scale As needed.

.

  • Olympic lifting is equal parts strength, speed, & mobility. Add in all the technical nuances to the lifts and you have a you have to have a lot of things coming together to make the party happen!
  • Today we have the wonderful move that is the Split Jerk. This is the method of us getting the bar from our shoulders to overhead with the addition of us jumping and spearing the legs in different directions to help us get under it.
  • By rights this move will have you lifting the most amount of weight overhead in a safe manner (note: if this is not the case then we most likely have some balance, coordination &/or stability restrictions going on, not to mention some mobility work would be needed).
  • Be QUICK in getting under that barbell!
  • Hold the standards. Form is priority as always.
  • Have a look back here and see how your numbers compare.
  • Scale As needed.
