I want to take this opportunity to thank Shaun Cleary for everything he has done for this gym from the beginning. He has been with this gym since KOB opened and truly developed from a member to coach/media expert. Shaun has been a passionate coach and photographing all of you working out has a part-time job. He is as he put it, “retiring” from coaching at the end of the month. We will miss his personality and coaching for sure. We will definitely see him from time to time. Thank you Shaun!
Here is a message from Shaun…


”It has been my amazing privilege to have the chance to coach all of you over the last five-plus years.  I don't take the job of coaching lightly and as my media career has continued to expand I simply can't devote the time and my full energy to being the best coach possible.  I've learned so much from you all in my time here and look forward to maintaining those relationships.  There's no where I've had more personal or professional development in my life than in this gym.  I walked into King of the Beach as a 9-5 office commuter who ran a few marathons, and seven years later, I'm married with two kids, my own business, and more than 1,500 hours coached.  I want to thank you all for all the support you've given me as your coach and hope to do so in person as I'll be continuing to coach through the remainder of 2018.  I still hope to be able to drop-in from time to time and look forward to getting a good workout with you all in the future.”
Thanks, Shaun

[Your first today should be your second set from last week]

Superset:
5 Bulgarian Split Squats



INTENT:
Today is 100% a training day. The workout is first again. We are starting the week with an emom
filled with "uncomfortable" movements, yet it is structured to make you work smart and still get
rest each minute. The row takes 17-24 seconds on average, the thrusters will be unbroken,
the burpees are meant to be done as games standards and the hollow rocks are so you don't quite get a full minute of rest. If you are still feeling the effects of our holiday party (or multiple parties) be smart and go off feel for the squats. If you were in weightlifting class yesterday, do step ups. You did a ton of explosive squat work yesterday. Let's slow it down and keep control with the step ups. Today we are training strength, power, speed, flexibility, balance, agility, coordination and accuracy.

Once you complete 4 rounds, row for the remainder of the 20 minute clock.

2 Scores: Time & Total Calories

INTENT:
We have had this row warmup before. Now, let's use the kg/lb graph during it to help us notice the way we move through each part of our row strokes. This is "day 2" of the deadlift 10s cycle that is going to run every 10-12 days until early Feb. If you were not in class last time, we started around 60% of your 1RM deadlift. Those of you who are doing this for day 2, we are increasing our weight from last time and hitting all 4 sets at this weight. Move around for 2 minutes following each set. Our wod today is a similar design as one we had a couple weeks ago. You have a task of 4 rounds and you will have a score for that. Then you will get on a rower (ski or bike if no rowers are left) and work for the remainder of the 20 minute clock. Today we are training strength, power, speed, endurance, stamina, accuracy, balance, coordination and flexibility.

INTENT:
The warmup will be nice and competitive. Have fun with that. Then we are getting into some
positioning on the pull-up bar. Now through January, we will be working on lots of strict gymnastics. So if you currently use a band for pull-ups, we are looking to work towards a thinner band or perhaps get rid of it all together. For our wod, this emom includes 2 newer movements to the program. Burpee wall overs were on Sunday two weeks ago and we introduced the battle ropes this past weekend. Those of you who missed them now have your chance to have fun with these movements. Today we are training strength, power, stamina, speed, agility, coordination and
accuracy.

Thursday December 20, 2018

CROSSFIT
WARMUP:
3 Rounds (Not For Time)
3 Laps Single Arm Farmer Carry (each)
3 Laps Double Farmer Carry
2 Minute Bike (72/62 RPM)
10 Strict Toes to Bar or Leg Raises


Every 4 Minutes for 5 Rounds
15/10 Calorie Bike Sprint
3 Squat Cleans (70%)



INTENT:
Last Thursdays warmup was simple looking, long and pretty deceiving. Today's is similar in that it
looks like it's not many things, but it will take some time. We are carrying a bit to start the program. We are trying to hold challenging pace on the bike. Guys, if you hold 72 for 2 minutes, that's 40 calories. We are also continuing our strict gymnastic strength with toes to bar. For the workout, we are going anaerobic and heavy(ish). You should get plenty of rest each round. However, your heart rate will get jacked up each time on the bike before you approach your barbell. The cleans are to be done as singles and if you need to take 15-20 seconds between them, that is fine. The bike is a sprint. No long than 45 seconds on the bike. Today we are training strength, balance, coordination, flexibility, power, speed and stamina.
