10-11FEB15: Baseline #1

For today’s lesson, we will learn one of the most important movements…EVER! It’s called the air squat, or simply the squat, and we’ll really break this one down step by step before putting it to use in today’s WOD. We will also review the body-weight movement we learned on Monday (the strict Push-Up and the roll-up push-up).

Today’s WOD (you can find it below the videos) also happens to be one of the most important WOD’s we will complete this year, and one of the few workouts we will DEFINITELY repeat a 2nd and maybe even a 3rd time before the semester is over (did I hear the PR bell ring?!?).  It’s called “Baseline,” and we will be using it as a way to measure our fitness gains throughout the year. Ideally, we will see our times for this workout shrink each time we complete it, as our fitness level and metabolic conditioning significantly improves. Here’s our videos of the day (VOD’s):
