PROGRAMMING WEEK 4 of 9  

26th – 31st October  

The 4th week of this cycle. 💪 

This 9 week cycle will be aiming to build strength in the back squat, the Olympic lifts and also overhead pressing movements. The 9th week will be a test week. 

We’ll also continue on with the Friday engine workouts, where we will retest ‘Bex’ on the last week to track progress. Saturdays will be partner workouts each week to kick off the weekend with a fun, sweaty session! 

After these 9 weeks, we’ll start gearing up for the Open which begins in February 2021.  


This week’s overview:  

Monday: Back squat week 4 / ‘Oh No, Curtis P’ 

Tuesday: Snatch week 4 

Wednesday: Gymnastics  

Thursday: Clean & Jerk week 4  

Friday: Engine / Aerobic 

Saturday: Functional Body building / Halloween Partner WOD 🎃 

MONDAY 26th OCTOBER 

STRENGTH: 

Back squat cycle week 4 

2 x 8 @ 75% 
1 x 3 @ 90% 

Rest at least 3 mins between working sets. 


WOD: 

Benchmark workout 

‘Oh no, Curtis P’ 

For Time 

100 Curtis P’s (42.5/30kg) 

One “Curtis P” complex is comprised of one Power Clean, one Lunge (each leg), and one Push Press. 

With a running clock, as fast as possible perform the prescribed work. Complete each complex unbroken. Rest as needed between each complex. 

Score is the time on the clock when the last Curtis P complex is completed. 

Pick a very steady pace. Prior to the start of the WOD, athletes should decide on how many unbroken reps they’ll perform, and how much rest between sets they’ll take. This is a workout where athletes should have a game plan—don’t wing this one. 

Scaling Options 

Scale the load on the barbell and/or the overall volume (total number of repetitions) as needed so the workout feels tough, but also doable. If an athlete has to stop for minutes at a time in order to recover, the load is too heavy and/or the volume is too high. 

TUESDAY 27th

1 x 1 + 3 @ 50% 

1 x 1 + 3 @ 60%
