Short and hard intervals are the goal today. Go for a max effort on the first set and try to hold within 10-15 seconds of that number for all the remaining sets. Do NOT try to be a hero and get negative splits! Sell your soul on the first round and know the pain of trying to keep up.



The fatigue from the Open may have set in, but the FUN has just BEGUN!!! Friday March 23rd is the LAST Friday Night Lights of the Open Season. Join us at the Hangar with heats starting at 4:00 p.m. Sign up HERE to throw down the WOD and/or judge.

Wear your camo/military attire. Can’t wait to have the ENTIRE community together to send off the Open season in STYLE!!!

Form, form, form. No one cares about your weight today; leave your ego at the door. We will focus on quality movements and use loads that challenge each athlete but allow for sets to be done unbroken with quality technique.



Metcon (Time)

1. WOD (32:00-52:00, this includes parts 1 and 2)
4 rounds for time:
Run 200m
10 Thrusters
40 Double unders

*Note the time, but keep the clock running for part 2.

L3 – 115/75 (If 1RM FS is over 275/175)
L2 – 95/65 (If 1RM FS is over 225/155)
L1 – 75/55

Pt. 2: Thruster (3 rep max)

3. Cool Down (52:00-60:00)
Run 400m at an easy pace.

This WOD should feel like an Open workout. You need to stay fast and push the pace throughout the entire duration. Run hard, do the thrusters unbroken, and crank out the double unders. Transition times should be minimal. This workout should feel similar, but perhaps longer, to a 1-mile sprint effort.


Daddy and daughter deadlifts.

1. WOD (28:00-48:00)
5 Rounds for time of:
25 Medicine ball cleans (20lbs/14lbs)

3 Rounds for quality:
0:10 Low ring plank hold
Immediately into max quality ring push-ups

Couch stretch with the elbow near the foot, 1:00 per leg.

This is a conditioning burner that will sneak up on you. Plan to finish in the 15-20 minute range with a 20 minute cap. If the first round takes more than 3 minutes, scale down the reps to support that timeline. It’s supposed to be SQUAT cleans on the Med-Ball cleans, but scale as needed.


Team work makes the dream work!

This one is all about the grip and your core. Remember to breath and not death-grip the KBs. Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast!

Metcon (Time)

1. Partner WOD (25:00-35:00)

“Tail Pipe”

3 Rounds

Row 250 meters

*Partner 1 rows while Partner 2 Holds 2 KBs (53/35) in the front rack position with handles touching. When partner 1 finishes the row, the athletes switch. Round 1 is done when athlete 2 finishes the 250 meters. Athletes can only row while their partner is holding the KBs in the front rack position. If the KBs come down from the rack position the person rowing must stop

Metcon (Time)
