CrossFit ATR – CrossFit

We’re up for best CrossFit gym in San Diego in San Diego’s A-List rankings (1st place last year!) We would love if you voted for us again. We’ll have it open at the gym if you’d like to vote there. Voting ends Sunday. Thanks! http://sandiegoalist.cityvoter.com/crossfit-atr/biz/680920

Goku (Time)

With a 20 lbs. weight vest…

Buy-In: 1 minute doing Cossack Squats

100 Walking DB Lunges (30/20)

100 Straight Leg Situps

50 One-Arm Pushups (25/side)

Take off weight vest for…

50m Shuttle Run (5x10m)

50 Wall Balls (30/20)

50m Shuttle Run (5x10m)

*Thoughts: Goku always warms up with a few Cossack Squats and wears weighted clothing until he’s deep into a fight. Then he removes it to increase his fight speed. He always does thousands of 1-arm pushups, lunges, and situps. The Wall Balls are meant to emulate his signature “Kamehameha.” The shuttle runs are meant to represent his incredible speed. Oh, and we know this WOD will take a bit. That’s the point. Goku loves training more than anyone.
Goku’s colors are Orange and Blue. There are Wall Balls that are Blue (30 lbs.) and Orange (20 lbs.)

Superman (Time)

3 Rounds

3 Ring Muscle Ups

5 Clean and Jerks (205/135)

7 Burpees

15 Double Unders

*Thoughts: The Man of Steel has all the muscle (muscle-ups), is quick to get back up (burpees), is known for lifting cars (clean and jerk), and can fly (DU).
In honor of Superman, we should use his colors. Guys use 45s (Red) and 35s (Blue) while Ladies use 45s (Red) and 2kgs (Little Blue).

Week 1

CrossFit ATR – Barbell Club

Back Squat (2-4-6-8-10)

Snatch Panda Pull (5×3 @ 85%)

Pause Overhead Squat (3×3 @ YOUR PICK)

3 seconds pause


CrossFit ATR – CrossFit

Batman (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)

20 minute AMRAP of:

2 Rope Climb (15 ft.)

10 KB Snatch (44/35)

15 Box Jumps (24/20)

20 DB Deadlifts (60/40)

*Thoughts: Batman has many gadgets as do you (Rope, KB, DBs, Box). He’s got high-level skills (KB Snatch), always rappelling (rope climbs) and jumping roof to roof (box jumps). He had his back broken once too (so DB Deadlifts).
KBs and DBs are already Batman’s colors. Everybody wins.

Captain America

CrossFit ATR – CrossFit

Captain America (Time)

30 Rounds

1 Bench Press (185/95)

2 Strict Pullups


*Thoughts: What’s more American than the Bench Press? Cap has chest and shoulders larger than life, so his workout should reflect that. Plus, he would never cheat pull ups! Cap would do 50 rounds for the 50 great States, but we’re only about half the man he is.
35 minute timecap

If you’re looking for a red/white/blue barbell, here’s what you’re looking for.

Guys: Red 25kg, White 5kg, Blue 2kg

Ladies: Black 5kg, White 5kg, Red 2.5kg, Blue 2kg


Superhero WEEK!

CrossFit ATR – CrossFit

Comic-Con 2017 starts this week so we’ll be kicking off each day with different workouts dedicated to a particular superhero. Each day will be equipped with 5 questions about that superhero. For each incorrect or unknown answer, the class will have 10 burpees.

The Hulk (Time)

5 Rounds

9 Broad Jumps (7/5 ft)

3 Clusters (185/115)

1x 15 ft. Sled Push (525/345)

1 Minute Rest

*Thoughts: Hulk could leap miles (Broad Jumps), and can launch heavy objects off the floor (Clusters). He also has the inclination to run through walls (Sled Push). He gets tired time to time (Rest), which is acceptable given all his power.
RX setups:

Sled for Guys= 5x 45s on each side

Sled for Ladies= 3x 45s on each side

For Barbells, guys should use 2x 35s each side while ladies use 1x 35 each side with a 5 lbs. plate. I’d love to use all green 10 lbs plates, but we simply wouldn’t have enough and they wouldn’t last.

Deem served with the San Antonio Fire Department for six years. The department is home to a non-profit CrossFit affiliate, where he worked hard to stay in peak physical health. His favorite workouts included The Chief, DT and Lynne.
