FOR THE COACH

Stimulus 
  • Workout brief: https://youtu.be/gZpxXLj1g0Y
  • Resource Links:  CompTrain Gym Resource Drive
  • We've got a spicy little leg and lung burner today. Don't be fooled by the descending reps on the front squats, the meat of this workout is in the run and double unders which remain the same for all 3 rounds. Can you pace the first 2 rounds smart enough that you can kick it up a notch in round 3? Athletes that are not confident in big sets of double unders should pick sets that they can hit repeatedly under fatigue in order to complete the sets in 2:00 or less each round.
  • Score | Time to complete work
  • Front Squats | 1-2 sets
  • Run | 3:30 or less
  • Double Unders | 2:30 or less

The One | Teaching Focus 

Lead with the elbows 

  • Today’s teaching focus will target the rack positon on the front squat. By cueing athletes to keep their elbows high it will result in an overall safer and more efficient squatting positon. Their torso will be more upright and their barbell will remain more over their center of mass.

Mindset 

“Let character be your loudest statement.”

The chef puts on an apron.

The accountant brings a suitcase.

The football player wears shoulder pads and a helmet.

These are all identifiables that may come to mind when thinking of those individuals.

What are yours?

Are they materials, or is it something else?

Let character be what defines you.

Humble, Hungry, Unshakeable.
