Macro – Extended Conditioning Emphasis – Week 1 of 12

Micro – Trunk Emphasis – Week 1 of 4

It’s summer and we know you guys love to sweat and like the longer conditioning efforts. Moving forward through the summer for the next 12 weeks we will be placing an emphasis on extended conditioning efforts. Aside from any Holiday weeks, we will be keeping to a templated format, you can expect longer conditioning efforts Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday, and shorter conditioning efforts on Monday/Wednesday/Friday. Longer conditioning efforts doesn’t mean you won’t be using heavier weights, high skills gymnastics, etc. it just means we will be prioritizing the programming into extended conditioning efforts on those days. With this 12 weeks we will be running 3 Micro Emphasis’ in 4 week blocks, starting with Trunk strength these first 4 weeks.


1a) 0:00 – 5:00 – Every 1:00 x 5 sets: 40 seconds Ski/Bike/Row

Increase tempo on the machine each round to get yourself good and warm. As always if you’re in the gym 4-6 days/week, this is a great day to take at an easy-to-moderate intensity level. Today is a choose your own adventure, so very easy to dictate the intensity you want out of the session.

1b) 9:00 – 45:00 – Every 1:00 x 36 sets:

Minute 1 –  Monostructural Conditioning

Minute 2 – Gymnastics/Skill

Minute 3 –  Non-Monostructural Conditioning

Minute 4 – Barbell

Movement 1 – Monstructural Conditoining – Row, Assault Bike, Ski Erg, Run, or Burpees. Double-unders are not an option. Pick a Distance or Caloric output that leaves you with about 40 seconds of work on each round.

Movement 2 – Gymnastics/Skill – Push-ups, Pull-ups, Toes-to-bar, Handstand Walks, Double-unders, Muscle-ups, Pistol Squats, Hollow Rocks, etc. This should be up to about 10-20 seconds of work (30 seconds if you’re working Double-unders).

Movement 3 – Non-Monstructural Conditioning – Wall Balls, Box Jumps, Ball Slams, Kettlebell Swings, lightweight/higher rep Barbell work Thrusters, Cleans, Snatches, STOH, etc, Sled Drag, Farmers Carry, Battle Ropes. This should be approximately 20-30 seconds worth of work.

Movement 4 – Barbell – Squats, Presses, Deadlifts, Cleans, Snatches, etc. all in a strength baring format, i.e. heavy weight and somewhere between 1 and 5 reps, shouldn’t be more than 15 seconds worth of work.

* Theme for Friday’s Programming will be Hinge + Pull.
