“Sled Dog”

July 1st - September 7

10 Weeks

A Sled Dog is depressed when it's not working. Yelping and howling outside, it lives for the grind. It can’t wait to run. The harder the job, the more they thrive. Welcoming adverse conditions, they expect the snowstorms, and they expect to overcome them. The Sled Dog knows no other way. The Sled Dog will outwork everyone.

In our previous training cycle, “Grunt Work,” we built a foundational base of strength for the coming CrossFit Games season. Now, we’ll bridge the gap between a higher percentage squat with the...

For our conditioning today, we have a 3 round effort with a medium distance run to start each round. We will be reaching into the longer time range of the week here.


“Shake Weight”

3 Rounds:
800m Run
21 Toes to Bar
30 Alternating Dumbbell Snatches (50/35)

If unable to run, complete:

1,000m Row

40 Calorie Bike

In "Shake Weight", we have a longer distance run with two "pulling" movements inside the gym. At 1.5 miles of total running, this is a large factor in the workout. The vast majority of our time will be spent outside, and for top scores, this will be the separating...

1.  A necessary de-load week with lower volume in order to continue the push forward. In a week from today, we'll be starting our next cycle - "Sled Dog".

2. "Sled Dog" will build upon "Grunt Work", with a larger focus on barbell cycling and shear work capacity in movements that we commonly see in competition. 

3. Today, three parts. Front squat positional work to start, which will lead us into our conditioning for the day. A modified version of the classic CrossFit.com benchmark, "Jackie". 




Every 90 Seconds for 5 Sets:

Teams of 3

30 Minute AMRAP:
7/5 Calorie Assault Bike
10 Medball Squat Jumps (30/20)
5 Power Clean and Jerks

1st 6 Rounds - 95/65
2nd 6 Rounds - 115/85
3rd 6 Rounds - 135/95
4th 6 Rounds - 155/105

Partner’s cycle through full rounds, one at a time. Weights climb every (6) rounds, or in other words, after each partner has cleared the weight twice. Score is full rounds, plus reps. 

In other words, every time an athlete completes the bike/medball/CJ triplet, that counts as a single round. When the full team has cleared six rounds (each partner twice), we incr...
