PVC Pass Throughs – :30 Seconds

With hands wide and arms long, raise arms up and over the head until PVC touches behind you.

Warrior Squats – 1 Minute

With the barbell on the ground directly in front of you, squat down and place one hand on. Keeping that elbow locked out and your chest tall, reach with the opposite hand overhead, focusing on rotating the shoulders and upper back (thoracic). Look towards the fingertips, pause for a moment, and then change arms.

PVC Overhead Squats – :30 Seconds

With elbows locked out overhead, squat to full depth with a pause in the bottom. Quality over speed here.

Weightlifting

Power Snatch (15 min to build to heavy single)

Before we complete the classic Fitness benchmark workout “Isabel”, athletes will build to a heavy single power snatch, prioritizing movement quality over load. The heavy single is relative for the day. When form starts to break down, that is a great place to stop. This 15 minutes to build in weight allows coaches to opportunity to spend time out on the floor seeing and correcting movement in a more controlled environment.

Isabel (Time)

For Time: 30 Snatches, 135# / 95#
In order to hit the correct stimulus, we want athletes choosing a weight on “Isabel” that they could complete at least 12-15 repetitions unbroken when fresh.

One option to help pace this out appropriately is to think of this as a three part workout: the first ten, second ten, and final ten repetitions. If athletes come out too aggressively on the first ten repetitions, the final twenty repetitions are more likely to be spent in panic mode with sacrificed mechanics. With each “round”, athletes can look to find a higher gear. The first ten repetitions are all about moving well and breathing, whether these are single repetitions or small sets. If these are approached well, athletes will be able to find a slightly quicker pace for the second ten repetitions and finish strong with the quickest ten repetitions of the day. With this being a benchmark workout, athletes may have previous scores that they can reference.
