The pain today will change us for tomorrow! Nothing else we can say about these rowing intervals except allow yourself to go there and feel the pain.


Results don’t come to those that stand on the sidelines. Come GET SOME!

1. WOD (25:00 – 55:00)
In a team of three, where 1 partner works while others rest, complete 5 rounds each for time:
10 Shoulder to overhead
250m Row or 100-meter prowler push or sled drag (moderate weight that can be done without stopping and performed with a jogging pace

Rx+ – 165/110
L3 – 135/95
L2 – 115/85
L1 – 65/35

2. Cool Down (55:00 – 60:00)
1:30/1:30 Banded shoulder stretch

High-power intervals is the goal today. With teams of 3 you should get a 1:2 work:rest ratio. Even if you do this solo today, aim for that ratio. No round should last longer than 2 minutes.


Reminder to keep your back flat when doing box jumps..Not only is it safer, but you’ll be able to breathe better during your workout. Adjust height of the box accordingly.

1. WOD (35:00 – 50:00)
5 Rounds
10 Double Kettlebell Front Squats (53lbs/35lbs)
15 Kettlebell Swings (53lbs/35lbs)
20 Box Jumps (24″/20″)

L3 – 53/35, 24/20
L2 – 35/25, 20/12
L1 – 25/15, Plates

2. Handstand Skills and Drills (50:00 – 60:00)
Pike handstand around the box
Complete 2 rotations around the box in each direction

*Rest as needed between rotations
*Scale with a 1/4 or 1/2 rotation.

This workout is designed for quick consecutive movement. You should plan to move from squats to the swings with almost no transition, so choose a weight that actually allows you to do that. Today will tax your back and posterior chain, so the coaches will be watching your back and midline positions like hawks!

Spring Fling WOD and Brunch

Please join us in Arvada for a WOD followed by a fun community event celebrating Spring, our members, and Flow Yoga’s 2 year Anniversary! Please bring your family and friends to check us out!!


1. Workout
Shoulder Press (5×1)
Push Press (5×1)
Push Jerk (5×1)

It’s a strength day! Nothing but pushing skills and technique development under load. Focus on your nutrition today, and try to come to class fueled for a lot of work! The first set of the next exercise should be the last weight of the last exercise. For those with less experience their push press and push jerk maybe close in weight. They can perform a drop set (lower the weight) and then build back up again.


1. WOD (25:00 – 45:00)
For quality and load in 5 minutes:
30 Back squats*

At min 6:00 for time:
1-mile run

*Think of doing an EMOM here and choose a weight you can do for 5 sets of 6.
*Hangar, run full mile course.

2. Flexibility and Core (45:00 – 60:00)
Sit n’ reach + compression drills
1:00/1:00 Sit n’ reach + 20 single leg compressions (right then left)
1:00 Sit n’ reach + 20 compressions

2 Sets
0:20 Down dog + 0:20 right hand to left ankle
0:20 Down dog + 0:20 left hand to right ankle
0:30 Up dog

These squats are designed to be heavy but maintain great form and be able to complete. For the run, it’s ok to run/walk…Let’s just get the volume in!


Metcon (Time)

1. WOD (30:00 – 40:00)
3 Rounds for time:
50 Double unders
30 Abmat sit-ups
100-Foot Single kettlebell overhead walk, right

L3 – DUs, 70/35
L2 – Speed-Steps, 53/25

4 Rounds NOT for time
6-8 Strict ring dips (Use False Grips)
10/10 3 Point dumbbell row
100-Foot kettlebell farmers carry

This WOD should take everyone less than 12 minutes. The situps and jumps should be fast, and the weight on the overhead walks is designed to be heavy!


MBS CrossFit Hangar – CrossFit

We are putting together two classic CrossFit workouts to create a mix of moderately loaded movements and relatively low skill gymnastic movements they are intended to be cycled quickly. The load on the barbell should allow for the first round of “DT” to be done in under 1:30. The reps on Cindy are intended to be done unbroken with fast transitions for the bulk of the workout. Faster athletes will be in the 12-15:00 range and no one should go longer than 20:00. Scale to support this timeline
