FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/K_lbSWQEsc0
  • Resource Links: CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • In a workout like today we want near maximal effort every time an athlete is working. Other than the run, athletes are able to partition this workout in whatever format allows them to maximize their pace and cycle rate. Since its teams of 2, athletes will have roughly equal rest time in contrast to their work time. This should encourage high output. Partition the toes-to-bars, front squats and rope climbs as needed. Start and finish with the run. To complete under the cap, all stations must be completed in 7 minutes or less (5 stations x 7 minutes = 35 minute cap: 
  • TTB | Sets of 5+
  • Rope Climbs | :30 per rep
  • Front Squats |Light to moderate. Sets of 5+

The One | Teaching Focus 
  • Sequence on the rope. Focus specifically on the sequence of 1. Reach 2. Tuck 3. Clamp 4. Stand. 

Modifications

Run 

  • Reduce distance
  • Unweighted run 
  • Sub machine 

TTB 

  • Reduce volume 
  • Single leg TTB 
  • Toes to space / Knees to chest
  • V-Ups
  • Abmat sit ups 

Rope climb 

  • Reduce height 
  • Rope jumping pull up with knee tuck 
  • Stand to stands 

Front Squat

  • Reduce load 
  • Sub DBs

Logistics
  • This is a long workout. Come with a clear plan to keep your timeline and teaching tight and effective! Encourage athletes to opt for a challenging modification on either the TTB or the Rope climb, but not both. Help them “choose their challenge” for the day.

Mindset 

“Don’t tell me who you are. Tell me what you are.”

When we are asked “who” we are, we default to our past. We define ourselves by our resumes. Although our past may give us insight of where we’ve been, it cannot be what defines us… for it’s the past.

When the question however asks “what” we are, we tend to give a different answer. We describe who we *really* are. It’s one of character, values and beliefs. 

Will we be defined by who we’ve been in the past, or by what we stand for today? Let character be our loudest statement.
