No Transition Necessary

Transitioning from one movement to another in a workout is something not always considered, but should be taken into account in order to maximize performance.  Getting on or off a rower, picking up and untangling a jump rope, or simply moving from box jumps to pull-ups takes time.  Wednesday you won’t have to worry about any of that, your next rep will always be right in front of you.  Multiple barbell movements in the same workout provide a unique, challenging stimulus, as you’re required to control yourself and external objects for much of, if not all of the workout.  Tomorrow both movements are relatively light, but there is no mercy from the barbell, and no transition period to catch your breath.  Check out this video (WMV/MOV) to see just how quickly this one can be completed.  Make note of how Rob and Jay seamlessly turn SDHPs into shoulder-to-overheads.  Hands on, pick it up, and get it moving, fast as you can.

  1. HBBS: 65kg, harder with one hand

    And a completely unrelated WOD – 9:58:
    walking lunges with 10# ball
    GHD back extensions
    GHD sit ups
    OHS with 10# ball

  2. HBBS: 50kg. Failed at 55kg.

    I’m having a really crappy week. My legs feel really fatigued…my hbbs should’ve been much better.

    WOD: 12:43 @ 20kg. This got petty hard pretty quickly. Ugh.

  3. HBBS — 59kg PR

    WOD — 12:49Rx…this turned out a lot slower than I thought going into it.

    Way to do work, evening crews!
