yeah burpees!...rest day

Oliver's First Burpees from Brendan Sonnichsen on Vimeo.




Febbers:
Sat - double
Sun - single
(both high intensity low volume tests)

Marchers:
Sat, Sun - singles - CP/ATP stuff...

I'd like to ensure that everyone who is competing has the right mind set going into next weekend. All of us here will be wishing you the courage to face pain head on and allow it to pass. Never doubt that the effort you put forth will come out at competition time. We all do this as you do, we'll be there as well, we travel in packs.

what does CP/ATP stuff mean?

Wow I wish I had that much fun doing Burpees... Future Big Dawg in the making!!

PTS, I'm 99% sure James is letting you know the energy pathway that the workouts will be hitting.

CP and ATP refer to Creatine Phosphate and Adenosine Triphosphate. These are the key energy sources for the Phosphogen pathway, which is used for short powerful bursts of activity. Think sprints, oly lifts, etc.

Hopefully I'm not way off base here.

That is SO cute! My kids (6 & 8 years old) saw that and immediately started to do burpees all evening. Oliver is good influence!

WOW how things have changed around here. There are so many new faces i feel like the new guy haha. Good to see all the big dawgs and new big dawgs are doing well. Rory and I have one more phase of training our survival phase and we will be back in here with you guys. We hit a WOD today first time together in a few months.

21-15-9
1 1/2 pood KB snatch
PU

good to get a workout in but its going to take quite a while to reverse the damage that this school has done my progress. just wanted to stop in and catch up.

Get after it big dawgs....

I'll be in Calgary on Wednesday and Thursday of next week and would love to meet and train with some of the Dawgs in town. Any recommendations as to what might be my best bet in terms of where and at what times I could get an few OPT WODS in?

5-135# ground to overhead
10- Vertical plain chins ups

Hi all, I'm new to the OPT's site and was wondering what Febbers and Marchers means? Thanks in advance.

Pete. E said...

That's beautiful!

I have a 10 week old son, and watching that brought a tear to my eye thinking Elias could love it as much :-)

Marcher

A1. 185 all sets. kept weight low and strict tempo
A2. 8,5,6,6,6
B. 10's,10's,10's,35's
C. 6:15

kept weight low on the squats in order to keep the right tempo and really feel it the way it's supposed to be felt
GHD sit ups were just a straight mental test
