THEME OF THE WEEK: GET THAT DUCK

Wednesday, May 13th 2020

STICKER SHEETS
Week 4 sticker sheets are UP and attached to the bottom of Monday’s post. Focus on today and check off every box!

WARMUP
Team dryland warm-up, about 10 each

  • Calf stretch
  • Knee hug
  • Quad stretch
  • Single leg RDL
  • Frankensteins
  • Open the gates
  • Close the gates
  • Lunge and reach
  • Heel/toe stretch
  • Arm circles
  • Dynamic squat stretch
  • Horizontal arm circles

RUNNING
4 sets, rest for 2 minutes between each set
Run for 4 minutes

If you have been running, run at a challenging pace. Keep the effort high but consistent for each run.
If you have not been running, run at a moderate pace. You shouldn’t be totally gassed (out of breath) after each run, if you are then you are going too hard and need to slow your pace down.

CONDITIONING
For Time:
Run for 6 minutes OR 600m (1.5 laps around a track)
80 air squats
60 push-ups
40 burpees

Remember to make each squat/push-up/burpee a good one! Meaning, have good form for every rep! Proper form is more important than going fast. But if you can do both then that’s even better!

COOLDOWN
Stretch for 10 minutes, make sure you stretch calves/legs/hips

THEME OF THE WEEK: TODAY IS A NEW DAY

Thursday, May 7th 2020

Today is a REST day! If you have been working out every day this week (Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday), then relax today. Eat healthy, stretch, and do fun things. If you missed a day, do that day’s workout (or a previous day if you want).

If you use today as a rest day, yes it counts as training for today so you can get that sticker.

THEME OF THE WEEK: TODAY IS A NEW DAY

Wednesday, May 6th 2020

STICKER SHEETS
Week 3 Sticker Sheets are UP! They are attached to the bottom of Monday’s post. If you didn’t get all your stickers yesterday, remember…today is a new day! Get those stickers!

WARMUP
Team dryland warm-up, about 10 each

  • Calf stretch
  • Knee hug
  • Quad stretch
  • Single leg RDL
  • Frankensteins
  • Open the gates
  • Close the gates
  • Lunge and reach
  • Heel/toe stretch
  • Arm circles
  • Dynamic squat stretch
  • Horizontal arm circles

SKILL
3×5 wall walks

If you are comfortable doing wall walks, you can try staying upside-down in the handstand position for several seconds before you come back down. Make sure you are CAREFUL and don’t flip over or fall sideways. We want to avoid injuries, so take it slow and focus in moving with full control. For example: if you find yourself shaking when doing a wall walk or holding a handstand, that means you need to practice it more so your body gets strong enough to control itself.

If you have no idea what a wall walk is, see the video below. Make sure you have enough space to do it in case you fall, but focus on your movement so that you do not fall.

CONDITIONING
4 rounds for time:
20 backpack front squats
20 sit-ups
20 mountain climbers (1,2)
20 jumping squats

ACCESSORY
3×30 calf raises (backpack/weight optional)

Focus on slow, controlled movement. Feel the tension in your calves and hold for a second at the top. Rest 60-90 seconds between sets.

COOLDOWN
Stretch for 10 minutes

2, 4, 6, 8, 10…
Burpees
Tuck jumps

For this workout, you are basically doing the same workout twice with rest in between. The goal is to get the same score or better on the 2nd round, without holding anything back in the first round.

For each round, you will do 2 burpees, then 2 tuck jumps. Then 4 burpees and 4 tuck jumps, then 6 of each, 8, you get the idea. Keep going and adding 2 to each exercise until you hit the 7 minute mark.

If you don’t know what tuck jumps are, see the video below.
