“Discipline is choosing between what you want now, and what you want most.” — Abraham Lincoln

The desire to seek immediate gratification can be our mortal enemy. It drives us towards the comfortable choice. The safer option, or the compromise.

What we lack in those weak moments is discipline. Discipline is the willingness to stick to goals we set out to do. Emotions and conditions can tempt to sway us, where our discipline can see the temptations for what they are, and make the right decision.

This skill, as it truly is one that we can practice, has been linked many times over to being a critical component of success.

What our emotions drive us towards today, may very well be directly against what we want in the long run. So we must question them. Stacked side by side, here we need to choose. Which one do we want more? There can only be one.

gooDTime (Time)

5 Rounds:

15/12 Calorie Row or 200 Meter Run

12 Deadlifts

9 Hang Power Cleans

6 Push Jerks

Barbell: 155/105
STIMULUS

GENERAL

-Today’s workouts combines the row erg with rounds of the hero workout “DT”

BARBELL

-Let’s choose a moderate barbell weight that allows you to complete the hang power cleans in 2 sets and push jerks in 1 sets within the workout

Strategy

DEADLIFTS

-The deadlifts are the movement we want to break the most of any barbell movement, as they are the easier to break

-Split up the 12 reps in a way that allows you to thrive through the more difficult hang power clean and push jerks

-You can leave one final rep at the end of the deadlifts to allow for an efficient transition to the start of the hang power cleans

-Consider the following options:

11-1

6-5-1

4-4-3-1

HANG POWER CLEANS

-Let’s break the hang power cleans in the first couple rounds in the same way you see yourself breaking them in the last couple rounds

-Just like the deadlifts, we can always leave 1 rep at the end for an efficient transition to the push jerks

-Consider the following options:

8-1

4-4-1

3-3-2-1

PUSH JERKS

-If there is one movement we want to try and hold onto unbroken, it’s the push jerks

-If we break, we have to rest a lot and complete another hang power clean that doesn’t count towards your score

-With the run/row to follow, where we can always move forward, let’s push for a big set here

Run/Row

-When rowing for calories, we are rewarded for a higher power output

-Let’s aim to move at a moderate pace knowing we are going to chip away at smaller sets of deadlifts after

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fate puts opportunity in front of us.
Destiny is the result of what we choose to do with it.

In turn, destiny is a choice. Not some predetermined thing of fairy tales and lore. We can sit and allow destiny to happen to us, or we can choose to have destiny happen for us.

Don’t wait to be chosen… instead choose.
Decisions = Destiny.

Metcon (No Measure)

3 Giant Sets:

9 Single Arm & Leg Dumbbell Romanian Deadlifts (Each Side)

15 Double Dumbbell Bench Press

21 Banded Pull Throughs

Rest 2 Minutes Between Sets
-“Giant Sets” are big supersets where you move right from one movement to the next while prioritizing quality over speed

-We’ll rotate through 3 movements in today’s Body Armor piece

-You can build in weight/resistance over the 3 sets, or stay the same across

-Choose challenging weights, but loads that allow you to complete each movement without stopping

-Rest 2 minutes between sets to preserve quality movement

Metcon

Power Wash (2 Rounds for time)

Every 10 Minutes x 2 Rounds:

1,000/800 Meter Row

30 Dumbbell Power Snatches (50/35)

50 Wallballs (20/14)
STIMULUS

GENERAL

-In this 2-round workout, a round starts every 10 minutes (0:00 & 10:00)

-In the first round, you’ll complete the three movements and rest with whatever time remains until the 10:00 on the clock

-For Example: If round 1 takes you 8 minutes to complete, you’ll have 2 minutes to rest until round 2

-Score each round for time

-We expect rounds to take between 6:30 – 8:30 to complete

-To ensure we have some rest built, cap your first round at 9 minutes

DUMBBELL POWER SNATCHES

-You’ll alternate arms every rep, for a total of 15 each side

-Choose a weight here that allows you to complete the 30 reps in no more than 3 sets

WALLBALLS

-Choose a wallball weight that allows you to complete at least 10 reps at a time within the workout

Strategy

ROW

-The row is important, but not as important as the weighted movements

-With 2 rounds that last between 6:30-8:30, let’s row at a pace that is around 5 seconds slower than your 2k pace per 500

For Example:

-If your best 2k row is 8:00, your pace per 500 would be 2:00

-In today’s workout, it may be best to hover right around 2:05

-If you don’t know what your 2k pace is, row at a moderate pace that you think you could maintain for around 15 minutes

DUMBBELL POWER SNATCHES

-The goal on the dumbbell power snatches is to just stay moving as much as possible

-The nature of this movement makes it easier to stay moving than the wallball does

-Completing quick singles where you switch hands with the dumbbell on the ground can be a very consistent option across both rounds

-When considering singles or touch and go, take into account the plan on the wallballs to follow

WALLBALLS

-Knowing there rest following the wallballs, let’s try to hold on for bigger chunks if possible

-Consider the following break-up options:

1 Set: 50

2 Sets: 25-25 or 30-20

3 Sets: 25-15-10

4 Sets: 15-15-10-10

5 Sets: 10-10-10-10-10

“We’re so busy watching out for what’s just ahead of us that we don’t take time to enjoy where we are.” – Bill Watterson

“Satisfied” feels like a dangerous word.

As competitors, we’re always striving for betterment. Through an everlasting hunger to improve, we wake each day looking to press forward. Although a phenomenal quality, this can be a double-edged sword.

We can fall into the trap of telling ourselves, “I’ll be happy when”. I’ll be happy when I make this PR, get that job, or buy that home. Yet, the finish line always moves. As soon as we do reach that PR, we’re immediately turning to thinking about the next.

The call to action is to appreciate where we are today. To reflect not just on the “to improves”, but to reflect on the positives. The accomplishments. To be proud of where we’ve come from, and where we’re about to go.

“Well done is better than well said.” – Benjamin Franklin

Talk is cheap.
Anyone can talk.
Only the few, choose to do.

There will be a point today where we will feel compelled to express our thoughts to someone. Maybe it’s how something could be done better.

Press pause in that moment. “Ductus Exemplo” is a Latin phrase that translates to: “Lead by Example”. Actions will always speak louder than any words.

Bergeron Beep Test (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)

On the Minute For as Long as Possible:

7 Thrusters (75/55)

7 Pull-ups

7 Burpees

After 10 Rounds: Add (1) Rep to Each Movement Every Round Until Failure

(10 rd minimum scaled)

SUBS

PULL-UPS:

-Reduce Reps

-Banded Pull-ups

-Ring Rows

-Jumping Pull-ups
STIMULUS

GENERAL

-The “Bergeron Beep Test” is a CompTrain classic benchmark workout

-Every minute on the minute, you’ll complete 7 thrusters, 7 pull-ups, and 7 burpees

-If you’re able to complete 10 rounds, add one rep to each movement every round until you are no longer able to complete the work within the minute

-For Example:

Rounds 1-10: 7 Reps Each

Round 11: 8 Reps Each

Round 12: 9 Reps Each

Round 13: 10 Reps Each

…..

-Your score is total completed rounds and reps

-The goal is to choose weights, rep schemes, and movement variations that allow you to complete at least 10 rounds

THRUSTERS

-The thruster barbell is designed to be very light

-This should be a weight that you are capable of stringing together 30+ reps unbroken when fresh

PULL-UPS

-Choose a pull-up number or variation that you can complete unbroken for at least the first 7-10 rounds of the workout

BURPEES

-With this being a benchmark workout, let’s aim for quality burpees today

-Standards: Chest and thighs to floor, small jump to full extension, and clap overhead

Strategy

GENERAL

-The Beep Test isn’t about sprinting through rounds, rather finding a pace that you can sustain for 10+ rounds

-The goal of the first 10 rounds is to finish with some rest built in, but not too much

For Example:

-Sprinting through the 21 reps in 30 seconds will probably get your heart rate up more than you want it to

-Consider slowing your pace to finish these sets around 45 seconds, which gives you plenty of time to transition back to the barbell

-Your speed will have to increase once the reps start to increase after round 10

-Make sure your transition between movements are very short, as every second counts within these short windows

THRUSTERS & PULL-UPS

-Let’s try to complete these first two movements unbroken for as long as possible

-If you had to pick one to break later on as the difficulty increases, make it the pull-ups, as those are easier to get back on quickly after a break than the thrusters are

BURPEES

-The burpees are truly the pacer of the workout, and the only movement where we’re not holding onto something

-Early on, aim to complete smooth and controlled burpees

-Slowing down these reps a bit will help you thrive through the thrusters and the pull-ups

-As the reps increase or the time shrinks, we’ll have to pick up the burpee speed to successfully make it to the next round

Midline

3 Giant Sets:

10 Rower Pike Ups

30 Hollow Body Scissor Kicks

50′ Quadruped Crawl

Rest 2 Minutes Between Sets

STIMULUS

GENERAL

-“Giant Sets” are big supersets where you move right from one movement to the next while prioritizing quality over speed

-We’ll rotate through 3 movements in today’s Midline piece

-Staying slow and controlled is the name of the game on these three movements

-Rest 2 minutes between sets to preserve quality movement

HOLLOW BODY SCISSOR KICKS

-Count 1 rep when you both feet have had a chance to pass over the top

-You can also think of these as 60 total reps (30 Each Leg)

“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” – Peter Drucker

In business, this is ever important for leaders to fully understand. That the culture of a team is everything. Over any marketing plans, product launches… anything.

The same mindset is true for us as athletes.

We’ve all heard the line, “it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog”. And we believe it to be true. The picture perfect strategy, executed half-heartedly, will always be beaten by the less-than-ideal strategy, but executed with full heart.

Our character is our back bone. During round 4 of “Kelly”, or the final minutes of an Open AMRAP, it will not be our “workout strategy” that we fall back to. It’s something deeper. Cultivate that, and everything else falls into place.

STIMULUS

GENERAL

-Rounds begin every 3 minutes in this 6-round interval piece (0:00 – 3:00 – 6:00 – 9:00 – 12:00 – 15:00)

-You’ll complete the three movements listed and rest until the start of the next 3-minute window

-Each round, you’ll build in power snatch weight

-Your score for the day is the heaviest set of 3 power snatches

-To ensure we have some rest built in, let’s cap these rounds at 2:30

POWER SNATCHES

-The 3 power snatches can be completed touch and go or as single repetitions

-A good starting place for the first round could be around 55-60% of your 1RM snatch

-Use one barbell and switch out weights during rest periods

DOUBLE UNDERS

-The double under number is designed to be very small

-Choose a number or variation that allows you to complete the movement unbroken or under 30 seconds

ROW

-The bike row number should be something you can complete in right around a minute

Strategy

GENERAL

-While there is no score as far as our time goes for each round, we want to move with a purpose in order to complete these rounds in under 2:30

ROW

-Let’s row at a moderately fast pace to start each round

-We’re coming off some rest and are rewarded for higher power outputs when rowing for calories

-We mentioned in the stimulus section that we should aim to complete the row in around 1 minute each round

DOUBLE UNDERS

-Let’s practice picking the rope up quickly following the row calories

-With a small number or reps, aim to complete the double unders unbroken if possible

POWER SNATCHES

-At the lighter weights in the earlier rounds, you may be able to complete touch and go repetitions

-As the weights increase, the 3 reps will likely best be performed as quick singles

-Take this movement one round at a time, choosing the cycling option that allows you to move the weight most efficiently

“If people knew how hard I worked to achieve my mastery, it wouldn’t seem so wonderful after all.” – Michelangelo

Written by someone recognized as one of the greatest artists of time.

“Natural born talent” is a myth. Movies portray it, sports news glamorizes… the “uncontrollable factor” that leads to such heights of achievement. Yet here he is, Michelangelo himself, expressing his backbone to success.

It’s easy to believe that we can’t control tomorrow. To believe that it is by chance. It’s far harder, to believe that it is within our capabilities. That there is another level of true grit and unrelenting effort we can choose to go. It’s realizing that the great Michaelangelo simply worked his ass off… and that we can too.

Greatness is never by chance. It is always by choice. The choice to do the work.

GENERAL

-We’ll complete familiar movements with some odd objects in today’s conditioning piece

-We expect this workout to take around 12-15 minutes to complete

DUMBBELL MOVEMENTS

-Let’s choose a weight for both movements that you are capable of completing 25+ reps unbroken when fresh

-For the power cleans, you only have to touch one head of the dumbbell to the ground on the outside of the feet

BOX JUMP OVERS

-Since these are box jump overs, you do not have to stand to full extension on top of the box

TOES TO BAR

-Choose a toes to bar variation that you are capable of completing 21+ reps unbroken when fresh

-Modifications include reducing reps or choose a sub from the list further down the page

Strategy

DUMBBELL MOVEMENTS

-The dumbbell movements will likely feel pretty good the first round, but let’s aim to approach the round of 21’s in a way that allows you to crush the round of 15’s

-Decide beforehand how you want to break-up the round of 15 and let that fuel your decision on how to attack the round of 21’s

-For Example: If you want to get the round of 15 done in 2 sets, it may be helpful to complete the round of 21 in 2-3 sets

-Especially with the odd nature of the dumbbells, break up these movements before you have to grind out reps in the first two rounds

-Consider the following break-up options for each round

Set of 21

2 Sets: 12-9

3 Sets: 7-7-7 or 8-7-6

4 Sets: 6-5-5-5

5 Sets: 5-4-4-4-4

Set of 15

2 Sets: 8-7

3 Sets: 5-5-5 or 6-5-4

Set of 9

2 Sets: 5-4

3 Sets: 3-3-3 or 4-3-2

4 Sets: 3-2-2-2

BOX JUMP OVERS

-This movement is the only station where we aren’t holding onto anything

-Move at a steady, robotic pace through each round of box jump overs

-Lets pace these out to allow for a fast final set of 9

TOES TO BAR

-The dumbbell movements will challenge our grip and midline, which we’ll need for the toes to bar

-While we could try to hold of for big sets, it may be best to chip away at smaller chunks

-Consider the following break-up options for each set

Set of 21

2 Sets: 12-9

3 Sets: 7-7-7 or 8-7-6

4 Sets: 6-5-5-5

5 Sets: 5-4-4-4-4
