Metabolic Conditioning: “Evasion“
Cover as much distance as possible in 20 mins of: Run Row Run or Row in any amount or any splits as desired. Record total distance ran and total distance rowed in addition to the combined total.View Results
================================= Cover as much distance as possible in 20 minutes Row or run split as desired. You must perform at least 800m of running and 1000m of rowing for the workout to be considered “as prescribed”. Airdynes/bikes and Ski Ergs included! Max: 3200m on assault/airdyne (2 miles) *Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx) Scaling Guide: 3400-5400 meters Compare to: March 3, 2016 Coaching Tips: Plan on rotating between movements multiple times. Many people find it beneficial to start with larger ‘sets’, then to decrease the distances as the rounds progress. Starting with 1000m of rowing, then 800m of running, then doing 800m of rowing and 600m of running, etc. As the time comes to a close, don’t run out too far from the clock (to make the distance traveled easier to estimate).

Complete as many rounds as possible in 6 mins of: 5 Thrusters, 115/75 lbs 5 Sumo Deadlift High-pulls, 115/75 lbs 5 Lateral Shuffles, 20 ftView Results
================================== Thrusters = Performance: 115lbs, Athletic*: 75lbs, Health: 55lbs Sumo deadlift high pull - same as above Lateral shuffles - down and back = 1 rep, touch ground with 1 hand *Women’s “Performance” weights and reps (Rx) Scaling Guide: 3 – 5 rounds Scale up: 135/85lbs Compare to: December 26, 2015 Coaching Tips: Push the pace on the barbell since the lateral shuffles can only go so fast. Real ‘go-getters’ can try to transition from the last thruster right into the SDHP (but don’t be stupid and hurt yourself if you can’t do it efficiently). Be sure to keep good back and shoulder discipline on the sumo deadlift high pull! If you are rounding the back or internally rotating the shoulder, slow down or drop weight.

In a teams of 3, only one person can work at a time. Only time work can be completed, is when someone is keeping the Sandbag off the ground ( You can hug, hold, shoulder, etc to keep the bag off the ground).

================================== 20 minute AMRAP (As many rounds as possible) with a partner Bumper plate Farmer carry - Performance: 45lb / Athletic: 25lb* / Health: 25lb dumbbells) *both partners run together (or 20' out and back shuttle with plates x 15 times) Bumper Plate Burpees - same Bumper Plate Squats - same Ring Rows - RX = Supine *Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx) Scaling Guide: 2 - 4 rounds Compare to: August 26, 2015 Coaching Tips: one person must carry both bumpers together, no splitting them up, both partners must run together. Coed teams can do one of each plate for ‘as Rx’. Don’t worry about splitting the work evenly. If one person is faster on one movement than the other partner, have them do more reps. This will increase your overall speed for the whole workout and ensure both partners get an equally hard workout. Trade often on the farmer carries, it will pay off big time on the later rounds. The same thing goes for the burpees. Go a little bigger on the squats and the ring rows. Remember to shift the reps to the partner who is going to do better at it!

Scale Up: 8 chest to bar chin ups, 30lb/20lb wall ball Compare to: January 10, 2015 Coaching Tips: The "chin-up" is hands supine (palms facing you). Make sure you still hit full extension/lockout at the bottom. If you are unsure if you should do strict or kipping, do as many strict as possible each round, then do some kipping once you hit failure. The dumbbell shoulder presses need to be strict (no help from the legs or hips at all). For wall balls, try and use your legs as much as possible to save your shoulders!

It will be best if you truly snatch the hang power snatches and avoid pressing out. Pressing the snatches will make your shoulders blow up faster! Similarly, use as little arm press, as possible, for the push jerks. On the 6-4-2 rounds, hustle through the transitions and don't waste time. Rest in the middle of the sets (vs. between movements.)

Be smart about when you break things up so that you avoid putting the dumbbell down (splitting each set up between each arm for example). Hook gripping the dumbbell is encouraged. The dumbbell can be held in the hand in any way that makes sense (in the rack, overhead, at the side, etc.), but you can't rest it on your shoulder, head, etc.

========================= As many sled “reps” as possible. In 3 minutes Power clean and jerk - Performance: 135lb / Athletic*: 85lb / Health: 55lb Box jump - Performance: 24” / Athletic*: 20” / Health: 12” max reps 20' out, 20' back sled push (Performance: +90lb / Athletic: +50lb* / Health: +0); each 20' equals one 'rep' *Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx) Scaling Guide: 20 - 40 sled push 'reps' (each 20' is one rep), try to finish to have at least 1 min to do sled pushes each round. Scale Up: 155lb/105lb clean and jerks. Compare to: NEW WORKOUT! Coaching Tips: Group people up so that they can stagger start this 2 min apart. Then they won't run into each other and two people can use one 'lane'. Alternately, you can have two people set up their own bar and box, then share a sled at the same time (their scores will be similar to if they had their own sled). Get through the clean and jerks quickly and then pace yourself on the sled pushes (especially on the first two rounds). The clean and jerks and box jumps will become significantly harder on the later rounds if you do too many sled pushes early on, even with the 2 min rest. Make sure you take extra time (if you need it) on the box jumps so there isn't any accidents!
