WOD: Saturday

September 12th, 2014

Today’s 0800 workshop will be an open gym. Come in and work on a goat or catch-up on a WOD.

Choose your own adventure…

Option A.
Run Workout
4 rounds of:
Run “the block” (637m) at 80% then go straight into a 400m hard.
Rest 5 min – perform 200m easy jog during the 5 min rest.
It is recommended finishing the 400m hard interval, rest for 30 sec allowing the heart rate to come down then perform the easy 200m easy jog. The 200m easy jog should take about 2 min.

Option B.
Assault Bike or Row Workout
12 min
3 min rest
9 min
2 min rest
6 min
1 min rest
3 min
Details: Each interval is its own separate event. Each interval is broken up into thirds (easy, moderate, hard). As example, the 12 min has a 4 min easy row, 4 min moderate row, 4 min hard row. The pacing is reset after every interval. The key to this workout is the easy is EASY and the hard is HARD.

Upcoming local competitions… get on board.

September 11th, 2014

“Should I compete?”…
Hells yes! These competitions are a super fun way to test your fitness, represent your box and meet new people who are like minded.
…”but I’m nervous/ a little scared”…
Yep, that’s a normal reaction to competition and the unknown and unknowable. That’s what makes it so rewarding.
…”but what if I don’t win?”…
Are you the fittest human in Tasmania/Australia/the World? Chillax, it’s only exercise.
These competitions are just like the daily WOD – scalable to accommodate all levels of ability and experience.

Good chat…
