*Grip should be outside of shoulder width and should emphasize use of the lats
2) Warm-up OHS + T2B for Metcon
Wide Grip Pullups
Training Intent
Superset of close grip bench press/wide-grip pull-ups. Make sure your athletes don’t “flare” their elbows on the bench press. There are multiple options that are commensurate with each athletes ability. Wide grip focuses on developing lats/shoulders. Make sure athletes aren’t compensating by “leaning back” to complete their reps.


“Cold Wind Blows”
4 Rounds: (12min Cap)
15 Overhead Squats (95, 65)
15 KBS (55, 35)
15 T2B
RX: (75, 55)
L2: (65, 35) (45, 25) (Knee Lifts)
L1: (35, 25 Goblet Squat) (35, 25 Russian Swing) (15 Abmat Sit-ups)
Training Intent
 I would not call this workout an “all-out sprint” since the T2B will likely slow athletes down, but KBS/OHS should be completed UB. Most times will range between 7-10:00. Managing grip fatigue is key, so breaking up T2B early is important.
