He’s baaaaAAAAck!

Hey Tribe! I’m excited to be taking the reigns from Derek and MegChanEt with the programming heading into the 2017 Open- ¬†we got some fun times ahead! Here is the general idea behind the next 4 weeks:

  • 2-3 times per week we will see nasty little couplets and triplets with movements that we are likely to see in the Open: burpees, thrusters, chest to bar pull ups, cleans, snatches, toes to bar, overhead squats, and more! The goal is to give you all a chance to work on the movements BEFORE we see them in the Open; so if you see a workout that includes a least-favorite movement, be sure to come get some work in!
  • 1-2 times per week, we will have some strength work paired with some type of gymnastic movement. Shades of EDT of you are familiar; we’ll have a 20-40 minute clock going to keep you on task. Pause squats are the flavor of the month! these days will be paired with a coach led yoga flow to end the day, no leaving early!
  • Some weeks we will will have a choose-your-own-adventure pure cardio day (like the first week of the program)- you can choose to either work on your top-end speed (sprints) or basic aerobic capacity (long intervals).
  • Heart and Barbell starts off with a week of video sessions- come in, lets get you on camera and dissect your movement! From there we will play with some fun assistance movements individually tailored to your needs.

As always, workouts will be fun, ever-changing, and challenging. Thanks for trusting us with your fitness! Sign up for the Open below:
