FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/rTVtbUMe7FI
  • Resource Links:  CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • We've got a 40 minute EMOM today with lots of room to come out too hot and slowly fall off by the end. Athletes should challenge themselves to find their max sustainable pace for each minute of work and maintain that pace through to the end. All athletes are jumping over a 20" box.Sustainable pace is the goal, find calorie and rep numbers you can continue to hit under fatigue. Athletes should aim to be consistent across all 10 rounds with their calories and reps.
  • Score | Lowest Round of Total Reps

The One | Teaching Focus 

Row sequence 

  • Teach the sequence of movement on the rower with the legs fully finishing the drive before pulling with the arms. Try the cue “Squeeze your legs before you pull the handle” today.

Box Jump Overs

Logistics
  • Begin athletes at varied stations if you need to manage a large group. 
  • If you are less familiar with your threshold for these movements you may choose to use the first round as your pace setter for what numbers to hit each round after that.
  • Athletes have the option to transition from one movement to the other when they want to, but keep in mind sustainability. Staying on one piece for the full minute may not work in your favor.

  • Box jump overs | Look for efficiency in the movement. Cue athletes to stay low when they land. If athletes are cycling slowly encourage them to modify by lowering the height of the box.

Mindset 

“No one was ever wise by chance.” – Seneca

Let’s pretend we have two individuals out hiking in the woods. 

 

The first trips over a root, and after scrambling back to his feet, kicks the root in frustration and storms off. The second individual  trips over the very same root as well, but has a different response. After gathering himself, he looks around, refreshing himself of the importance to scan the path ahead. He then moves on, now paying closer attention to the ground in front of him.

 

One took the effort to learn from it, one did not. 

Wisdom isn’t by chance. It is by choice.
