CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

Movement flow as a group

then 2 sets:

3-5 muscle snatch

3-5 behind the neck push jerks snatch grip

3-5 Overhead squats

then a few min for everyone to get up to speed on power snatching. Wont take too long to figure out your starting weight.

A: Power Snatch (15-12-9-6 T&G UNBROKEN )

Every 3:00min preform a set

If you are still very fresh to power snatching, there isnt a need to practice touch and go reps etc. you can just focus on doing the reps at lighter loads and working on skill and getting better at the lift. Just control the bar back to the floor then reset at the bottom of each rep.

For those a little more seasoned you can get after practicing T&G reps for barbell cycling.

A: Power Snatch (12)

A: Power Snatch (9)

A: Power Snatch (6)

B1: Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds)

EMOM X 10:00

1- 20/15CAL ROW

2- 15 burpees
-Rest 1min-

B2: Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds)

EMOM X10:00

1) 18/13 cal AB

2) 15 burpees
This is one big EMOM with a short rest in the middle for change over from rower to AB.

Challenge yourself to hit the highest number possible each round.

Set yourself a goal and aim to stick to it. Completeing the work in the minute is a completed round

Score is total completed rounds.

Modify the reps/cals as needed

This is mean to be a real challenge to acheive.

Do your best!!!

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

General movement flow as a group to start

then into

6x:30sec work/ :30 sec rest on any machine

then prepping into todays workout.
No score on todays workout, focus on being smooth and quality. You will get in a great workout still. This doesnt mean sandbag the workout and not try your best. It means just not needing to try to go balls to the wall and into full send mode.

Allow yourself to focus on quality over speed. Be smooth, practice moving well. Enjoying not needing to race today and just getting in a quality workout. Some days are to ‘race’ and push yourself to that dark place and others are to just be fully present in moving well and focusing on quality.

A: Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)

35min AMRAP with focus on quality rather than speed.

10 ring rows (quality, no hips, strict, make them as hard as possible)

15 wall balls (pick your own height and weight today)

10 toes to rings (can kip, if tough do knees up high)

:30sec side plank/es

15 Russian KBS (heavy as you like today)

30m sled push (heavy but limit 1min time)

15m broad jumps
Score will be total rounds completed but hold yourself to a very high standard on quality rather than trying to win or complete a crtain amount of rounds.

Work hard, but allow yourself to slow down a little, not needing to push yourself so you feel beat up and smashed.

Tomorrow we go hard and to that dark place.

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

Good mobility flow to get going

2min moderate AB/Row (focus on what you plan to test today)

-rest 1min-

1min slightly faster but still moderate

-rest 1min-

2x :30sec toughs effort

-rest 1min-

2x:10sec burst with 1min rest between

Op.1: 2k Row (Time)

Max Effort 2k Row

Op.2: 10min max Assault bike cals (Calories)

B: Metcon (No Measure)

1520min AMRAP:

not for score but for quality focus:

30m bear crawl (hips higher and moving slightly faster than normal)

2 TGU/es

30m sled push (up then back)

2 rope climbs (1 legless if able)

1:00 double under/practice
Start this when you are ready after completeing your AB or row

This will still be a good challenging workout and you can push yourself a bit if you like. You dont have to go ‘easy’ but dont try to go fast and race. Take the time to be smooth, move well and enjoy a slightly lower intensity workout with some skill pracice adter selling your soul on the rower/AB.

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

here early?

Get in some aerobic work + movement flow in your own time to start.

3 sets of:

10 banded face pulls (shoulders back and down as you pull)

:20sec side plank/es

2-3 controlled wall climbs

A: Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

5 sets:

10 DB bench press (you select your weight)

-Rest 1min-

1:00 max box jumps step down (you select height)

-rest 1min-

16 renegade rows alt (you select weight)

-rest 1min-

1:00 max cal ski (tough but able to recover to repeat rounds)

-rest 1min-
Score is total reps and cals added up. In the notes put in weights you used and height you did.

Tough weight for the DB work. This is strength work.

For the box jumps you can challenge yourself and do a higher heigh than normal but only if you are confident and already consistent on box jumps.

Renegade rows its very important that you manitain good form keeping your shoulders and hips in a straight line, core braced and not using a crazy amount of momentum to get the DB up there.

B: Metcon (No Measure)

Core finisher:

3 sets for Quality

10-15 V-ups/tuck ups

:20sec hollow hold/ bent hollow hold

10 pallor press rotations/es (arms stay straight and you rotate)


Sunday, June 23rd, 2019

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

1min aerobic

10 banded good mornings

10 air squats

15m SA OH carry


A: power clean and jerk (15min to build to a tough 3 reps T&G)

If you are still learning, this can be tricky to do as you are still trying to learn how to set up for 1 perfect rep at a time. So just lift it up, control it down while keeping full grip. Otherwise if you are able go full T&G but keep good form.

B: Metcon (Time)


60/50 cal AB/Row

30 DB Power clean and jerks 22.5/15kg

30 C2B pull ups/ pull ups/ jumping pull ups or band

15 DB power clean and jerks

15 C2B pull ups

60/50 cal Row/AB
-Stagger the starts to allow for a nice flow. Can start on AB or Row but if possible, start on the AB.

– Modify as needed to be able to keep chipping away and keep moving through the workout. If needed do less cals as the goal time is to keep those under 4-5min.

-For the DB a power clean into a push press or a push jerk is okay.

Thursday, June 20th, 2019

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

w/up: Warm-up (No Measure)

movement flow to focus on lats and ankles to help with getting to the bottom of OHS and front squats today.

then 3 sets:

:20-:30sec hang from bar (focus on getting a good stretch)

:20-:30sec active squat hold (as deep as you can with tension and chest as upright as possible)

then warming up the snatch

A: Snatch (15min to find a 1rm for the day )

* If you max out to early, drop it back and get in some lighter tech focused reps. Use the entire 15min

Remember ‘for the day’ means for the day, not needing to be a lifetime PB. If you are new in your journey you will most likely improve quickly but for those who are more seasoned will have good and bad days.

Just focus on moving well and having fun

B: Metcon (Time)


50 front squats @ 80/55kg (no racks)

*EMOM 3 burpees.

Workout starts with the burpees!
Adjust the weight as needed. you should know you have the ability to do about 10 reps UB at this weight. The weight is however meant to be challenging but still achievable. Not so heavy you can’t even get out 3-5 reps per set.

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

5;00 on the clock for some mixed aerobic wokr


3sets of:

15m bear crawl

10m inch worm

into barbell skills, Will talk about each lift seperate before starting. You have done power clean and jerks many times before this is just broken down separately.

A: Power Clean (15-12-9-6 T&G unbroken )

-Resting 2:00 between sets.

Must be done UB. If ou need o break then just record the weight for reps you did UB. Finish the set off then reajust accordingly as needed for the next set.

A: Power Clean (12)

A: Power Clean (9)

A: Power Clean (6)

B: Push Jerk (15-12-9-6 UNBROKEN )

From the floor

-rest 2min between sets

must do the set unbroken. If you need to put the bar down and rest then just track how many reps you did UB then ou can pick the bar back up and finish the set off as needed.

Really focus on using your redip in this overhead lift today. Drive the bar up but then push yourself under to catch in a lock out and saving your shoulders the need to press it out.

For those with shoulder issues, a push press would be a much safer option today rather than a jerk, maybe even a strict press.

B: Push Jerk (12)

B: Push Jerk (9)

A: Push Jerk (6)

Come in and do a catch up workout or work on something you have been waiting to do for awhile.


Thursday, June 13th, 2019

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

movement flow as a group for 5min to iron out any kinks then start prepping into the workout

A: Metcon (No Measure)

45min @ grinder pace:

15m arm over arm pull

5-10 strict HSPU*

1min ski

3-5 sandbag over shoulder**

:30 goblet loaded wall sit

:30 top of dip support***
Hit this at a tough grinder pace but not trying to race or feel as you need to keep score etc. You can push the ski erg to see how many cal you can get each time if you like. Challenging weight for all the odd object work but form and qaulity comes first.

*Options for strict HSPU/ controlled lower + kip/pike HSPU/push ups. Pike HSPU when done right are just as tough as HSPU.

**Just pick up sandbag like a DL or use a DB like you may have done before.

***On rings but if unable ti do a static support and if still tough go to a FLR.


Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

5:00 aerobic work

then into

mobility flow

then into barbell skill work

A: Power snatch + hang snatch + power snatch (Build to a tough weight for the day in 15min)

Focus is on quality movement

Drop and reset for the last power snatch.

The limiter in this complex should be how much you can power snatch. The first PS should be solid, the full snatch is a litle harder due to already doing a rep but being able to get under the bar not needing to pull as high then the last PS will force you to really be aggressive, get the bar moving up as high as you can but still needing to be fast under to be able to catch above parallel.

B: Metcon (No Measure)

4 sets for quality:

15m dual KB front rack walking lunges @ controlled and good form each step.

2 rope climbs (legless if you can for 1 rep)
Quality focus over trying to rush. Avoid resting the KB on the shoulders. Rack them so handles are near collar bone with the bell on your forearm and bicep. This challenges your core more. For the RC, if you cant get all the way up, just do efforts going as high as you can or lying to standing pulls.


Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

2min moderate AB/row

-rest 1min-

1min slightly faster but still moderate

-rest 1min-

2x:30 tough-ish effort

2x:10 burst all out effort with 1:00 rest between

*During your rest time is great place to add in some general movement flows.


3 sets of:

15m single arm OH carry/es

*tough weight to prep for heavy OH work in the push press. Bicep on each ear and arm fully locked out.

A: Push Press (5rm for the day in 10min )


B: Metcon (AMRAP – Reps)

This is very similar to last weeks workout we did, ‘fight club’ but with diffrent movments but will have a simialr stimules

C : Metcon (No Measure)

10:00 active cool down, please do not neglect this!


Monday, June 10th, 2019

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

W/UP: Warm-up (No Measure)

2 sets of:

6-12 banded good mornings

:20sec pallor press hold/es

10 broomstick pass throughs

:20sec effort on aerobic machine

then building into the power cleans, During your warm up lifts, continue to throw a few explosive vertical jumps to get that CNS firing to be able to preform explosive lifts today.

A: Power Clean (5×5 not TnG)

Building in weight

Go every 2:00

progressing these from last week.

B: Metcon (No Measure)

Intervals/no score, just work:

4 sets alternating between row/AB (2 on each)

4:00min AB/row

rest/walk 2:00

4 sets alternating between row and AB (2 on each)

1:30 AB/row

rest/walk 1:00
We start with 4x4min the after your 4th set you’ll rest 2min before then going onto 4×1:30 intervals. The goal is to try and hold the pace from last week or just a touch under for the 4min intervals. Goal is to be working but keeping them sustainable still. Meaning your first and second efforts on the row and AB should yeild the same cal/distance. Then on the 1:30 intervals, the goal is to push a pace a bit faster than the 4min ones. There will be fatigue that has built up but it’s much less time. Give your best effort to hang in there.
