Saturday & Sunday - Tandem Trouble

Saturday One of my good CrossFit friends recently pointed out to me that Saturday is the perfect day for a team workout. What other day of the week do we find such a mix of people? During the week most everyone falls into one of two categories, a morning person or an evening person, only on the weekends is the routine broken. I have recently attended a few weekend classes and thought to myself, who is that person, I've never seen them before? So, now is your chance to mingle. Try and find someone you haven't met before to partner up with for this team workout: Technique: Coach's Choice Workout: Tandem Trouble Tandem Bike In teams of two for time: Partner A - 1 double wall ball (12lbs/20lbs), 1 kb swing (red/black) Partner B - 1 double wall ball (12lbs/20lbs), 1 kb swing (red/black) Partner A - 2 double wall balls (12lbs/20lbs), 2 kb swings (red/black) Partner B - 2 double wall balls (12lbs/20lbs), 2 kb swings (red/black) ... Partner A - 10 double wall balls (12lbs/20lbs), 10 kb swings (red/black) Partner B - 10 double wall balls (12lbs/20lbs), 10 kb swings (red/black) Partner A - 9 double wall balls (12lbs/20lbs), 9 kb swings (red/black) Partner B - 9 double wall balls (12lbs/20lbs), 9 kb swings (red/black) ... Partner A - 1 double wall ball (12lbs/20lbs), 1 kb swing (red/black) Partner B - 1 double wall ball (12lbs/20lbs), 1 kb swing (red/black) Sunday I know that the coaches on Sunday may not be overly fond of its status as a make-up day. Often times this results in several different workouts being run at the same time, each requiring attention to different movement patterns. On the other hand, if there is a workout that you missed during the week that you really wish you could do, the make-up day provides a great opportunity. So, to make things a little more simple I am limiting the options. Workout: Choose either Monday's BC Day Special or Cindy. If you have done both of these workouts (first of all wow, your legs are far more resilient than mine) then work on your front squat 5 sets of 3 repetitions. That is all. - Kermit
