FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/LUP_TvwGqzk
  • Resource Links:  CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • Today's piece is bit of a sneaky leg burner. Managing quad fatigue and breathing come into play quickly, as 1 minute of rest goes by faster than you may like! Can you hold onto your starting pace across all 5 rounds?
  • Score | Total time to complete work including rest.
  • Bike | 2:00 or less
  • Double Unders | :60 or less
  • Sit ups | :60 or less

The One | Teaching Focus
  • Wrist speed 
  • Since we have a high volume of jump rope today, we want to emphasize wrist speed. The focus is not to spin the rope harder, but to spin the handles faster. Throughout the warm up and workout athletes will have a lot of time to focus on this and improve either their single unders or double unders. 

Modifications

900M Bike

  • Reduce Distance
  • 1:45 Time Cap
  • 450m Row

Double Unders

  • Reduce volume
  • 90 Single Unders
  • Plate Hops
  • Reps of Singles & Doubles (Mix of Both)
  • 1:00 Time On Any Machine

Abmat Sit ups

  • Reduce volume
  • 1:00 Plank Hold

Logistics
  • If you’re short on bikes today and need to accommodate a large class, you can pair athletes up and have them share a bike. You can start one athlete on the bike and one athlete on the sit-up and double under couplet. Since the combined time targets for the double unders and sit ups should be similar to the total time on the bike this should work well.

Look For

  • Abmat sit ups | Full range of motion. Cue athletes to touch their upper back to the ground and then to make sure their shoulders are passing through their hips each rep.

Mindset

“The soul is like a bowl of water.” - Epictetus

It’s ok to get ruffled sometimes.We are indeed human, and we will get emotional too.

The analogy that Epictetus depicts for us is that even though we can be rocked, knocked around, shaken… through disciplined stillness, we can always find emotional stability. The visual is quite relatable: a bowl of water, disturbed from some event, has ripples running throughout it. It’s not at rest.

But with disciplined focus and effort, we can regain stillness. Often faster than we think.In the moments where we are most shaken, remind ourselves of this visual. No matter how bad things get, everything is recoverable.
