Mobility (No Measure)

Childs Pose – 1 Minute

With arms together and straight out front, have athletes sit back onto their legs while dropping the chest and head towards the ground. Relaxing as much as possible and focusing on breathing will deepen the stretch.

Front Rack Stretch – 1 Minute

Laying on your chest, place our elbows out in front, arms bent at 90 degrees. The goal is to close the gap between the armpits and the floor, which will stretch the lats, shoulders, and triceps.

Wrist Stretch – 1 Minute

From hands and knees position, place palms on the ground with fingertips facing towards you. With elbows locked, actively rock back and forth through range of motion to feel the stretch in the wrist. After 30 seconds, reverse hands by facing fingertips away from the body and repeat active stretching for final 30 seconds.

INTENDED STIMULUS

Athletes will complete their calories on the rower, and barbell facing burpees. With whatever time they have remaining in the three minute window, they will complete as many push presses as possible. When the clock hits 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00, athletes will immediately transition back to their rowers. There is no rest following the max push press. Looking for a weight here that athletes could complete 15+ repetitions unbroken when completely fresh.
