CrossFit Sudbury – 24082016 – Mermaid’s Dilemma

Hey Friends!

Hope everyone enjoyed slamming the crap out of the slam balls – ALWAYS good for some stress relief and just general explosive flexion.

If you haven’t RSVP’d for Beau and Amy’s place, please do so sooner than later 🙂 thanks!

The Deadlift 3 rep today is just meant to work in some hinging before we row and hang power snatch.  You probably won’t PR your 3rep deadlift (though if you do that’s a good thing!), so just make sure you’re being smart and staying tight and minding your technique.  Today’s WOD is a re-do from April 5th, 2016.  I can’t remember how it felt back then, but I think I remember that 2nd 1000m being a challenge and a half!  Set a solid pace on the first 1000m, but don’t kill yourself.  Then break up the barbell movements as needed to maintain a decent pace… then empty what you got on the last row.


Tabata Double Unders:
8 Intervals of DU’s for total reps.
20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest x8.


With an 8 Minute timer:
Work up to a heavy 3 rep deadlift.

If you’re done earlier than 8 minutes, start warming up your power snatch, overhead squat and Push jerks.

1000m Row
15 Hang Power Snatch (115/73/Kettlebell swings)
