Unicorn Daily Challenge

3 Sets of 6 – Deadlift
2 Sets of 8 – Sumo Deadlift
2 Sets of 12 – Romanian Deadlift

Aim is to build steadily to a moderately heavy load, and complete all sets across. In terms of percentages we are not looking to move far past 70% on our conventional deadlift on the 3×6. The following accessory movements are to be completed at far lighter loads, focusing on technique.

Warm-up

 

Back Squat

5 Sets of 3

Front Rack Reverse Lunge

3 Sets of 12

“Sore Subject”

Alternating Tabata x 8 Minutes:
Back Squat (45/35)
Double Unders

Athletes will work through two different barbell movements before completing a simple, yet effective Tabata cash-out. On the back squat and the front rack lunges, athletes have the option to either build to something heavy across their sets or stay at a challenging weight throughout. For the front rack reverse lunges, athletes will complete six repetitions per leg, taking the bar out of a rack. During the metcon, the empty barbells will come from the floor. With short time domains, the weight and rope variation should be something that athletes are confident they can move for the majority of each twenty second interval without stopping. The format goes as follows:

8 Rounds: 
:20 Seconds Back Squats 
:10 Seconds Rest 
:20 Seconds Double Unders 
:10 Seconds Rest

AMRAP 15:
1 Rope Climb
12 Double Dumbbell Push Press (50/35)
1 Rope Climb
100 Meter Sand Bag Run (50/35)

Today’s workout presents athletes with a variety of odd objects to throw around. The weight on the dumbbells should be something that athletes could complete 21+ repetitions unbroken when fresh. The Sand Bag weight should allow athletes to run for every 100 meter run today.

Monday, 2nd July

Unicorn Daily Challenge

Not for Time, 3 Rounds:
100 Meter Double Kettlebell Front Rack Carry (Video)
100 Meter Double Kettlebell Farmers Walk
200 Meter Sled Drag*

Round 1 Drag – Light
Round 2 Drag – Moderate
Round 3 Drag – Heavy
In all three drags, we are looking for a loading that we are confident we could complete with at most, 2 breaks during a 200m distance. The final weight is “heavy” and challenging, but not to the point where we need to break every 50 meters. A slow steady walk through the duration is the intention.

On the kettlebells, athlete’s choice on loading, but, maintaining the same intention as the sled – challenging, but doable without several breaks. Free to build in loading over the course of the three rounds as we see fit.
