About the wod
Background: Daniel Danao coaches & trains at the HKIACF Box in Afghanistan with all levels of athletes, multinational soldiers, police, fire fighters, and contractors. Two HERO WODS were also created for the CF community in Afghanistan.
Intended Stimulus: This workout will help develop a notion for ‘timeline’, in each fixed 8-minute window. Question will be to each individual athlete, ‘how heavy can I lift in such a short time window frame’. Additional benefits, technique, and strength aimed to support those Oly Lifting days. A workout to re-do to measure performance, challenge with the crew at your local box, implement measured strength under a small frame window.
Strategy: Begin with a comfortable weight for each station and work your way up. Keep in mind the time frame, you are not looking for a PR, aim for 70-85% depending on the station, or better. These are classic lifts, so it’s all about personal training if you want to lift heavier.
