The hang squat clean when done well is a thing of beauty. Power, speed and accuracy will position you under the bar, and core strength and leg and hip strength will allow you to rise up from the bowels of hell with the earth on your front rack. The workout is based on the benchmark ‘Jackie’ but with the big squatters of the gym getting to the handstands first. A perfect primer for the monster squat Hero wod ‘Manion’ this Sunday at 3pm. Go well.
Our ‘nastics takes a new direction and goes freestyle. Work on the progressions to get you to new levels in the kipping handstand pushup or the bar muscle up, and get upside down and get walking. Our WOD is a screamer that will have you gasping against the ropes ;-)

Today we continue building our positional strength with a full component of starting and finishing positions. Then a workout that challenges your integrity of movement when body temperature and heart rate are jacked.
Friday Fun Day and we build up to a heavy triple thruster then go after another girl. This time is Karen.
” The only way to finish Karen in a reasonable amount of time is to mentally compartmentalise the horrifying totality of the task, ignore the mental imperative to stop and just concentrate on the next few reps. When you can do that you’ve learned how to keep moving past the siren song of comfort and relief to the finish..” Greg Amundson.
