FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/pL62DdDwwkU
  • Resource Links: CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • Today we have an awesome conditioning workout. The name of the game here is pacing. We want to keep this workout as cyclical as possible while understanding we’re likely going to need to take some rests on the burpees and the double-unders. We want to keep our effort at something we can maintain with short, intentional breaks.. 
  • Burpees | 2:00 / 1:30 / 1:00 / :45 respectively 
  • Row | 2:00 or less
  • Double Unders | 1:30 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.

Logistics
  • If you’re short on rowers and need to manage a large class you can set up barbells in a separate area of the room and have athletes perform burpees over bar rather than burpees over rowers. This will allow you to start athletes at varied stations and have them share rowers.

Workout (30-52)

Look For 

  • Double Under | Continue to look for good positioning. Athletes hands should be down and slightly in front of them. Cue athletes to spin quick with the wrists. Cue athletes to jump straight up and keep from tucking or piking their feet. 
  • Row | Cue athletes to control their strokes per minute cadence with a slight pause at the back of each pull. Cue athletes to drive hard through the legs to create power on the rower.

Mindset 

“Integrity is not a noun. It’s a verb.”

Just about everyone “knows” right from wrong. And if one knows right from wrong, they could be said to “have integrity”, as they possess the requisite knowledge. Yet, we know that’s not what real integrity is…

The paradigm shift is as powerful as it is simple: every day we are given the chance to live a life of integrity. For some, this may be the sustainment and building upon yesterday. To others, it’s a new chance. A new chance to begin again, and to change the course of what “was”, to what “is”.

Integrity is an every-day-thing. It’s a lens we live our lives through. Yesterday matters, but not nearly as much as right now.
