Workout tips:
It is important while on the bike to move at about 75% capacity.
You do not want to be slow but this is not a sprint.
The GHD situps will tax your quads so trying to stay somewhat "relaxed" on the bike is key.
To scale this use an abmat or regular situps instead of the GHD.

Another slide from our Mental Resiliency class we offer at Optimal Performance 18.

This slide covers several important steps within the goal setting process and shows how they can be applied directly to physical fitness.
Not all steps are always needed but sometimes it helps to understand everything so you know what can help and what won't in certain cases.

Lifetime PR right here. 250lbs. Yes, my legs kicked way out. Yes, I chased it. Yes, I realized the rack was right there and went ahead and racked it. Not the best form but I still managed it and pulled it out! All and all not a bad staff duty shift. #clean #prsonalrecord #OptimalPerformance18 #OP18 #Dontbeahero #weightlifting #crossfit #armylife #lifting #liftingatwork #garagegym #garagegymproject #garagegymexperiment #barbell #rogue

Did this one this morning. It was a lot of fun and brutal at the same time. My time was 32:27! @thedavecastro
Regrann from @optimalperformance18 - Workout tips:
This is a lot of work.
Break them up into sets so as to not fatigue yourself too quickly.
On the bench press feet, butt, and shoulders must be in contact with the ground/bench.
Touch the bar to your chest and raise to full extention.

On the front squat ensure you are going to at least 90 degrees.
The push press is from the front rack position and extend arms fully over head.
The reason we chose 64% is because while doing the Push-Up that is approximately the amount of weight you use. Then we just decided to have some fun with it.
Shoot for under 40 minutes for this and do not move on to the next movement until the first movement is complete.
As always FORM over time. Best of luck, let us know how it goes for you!

Regrann from @optimalperformance18 - Workout tips:
The timed portion of this event includes the 2 minute rest each round.

Pacing is key for this workout.

Go at a steady pace that pushes yourself hard and use the 2 minute rest to recover.
Try to keep this workout under 40 minutes.
Scaled versions of this would include single unders, 300 meter row, and 400 meter run.

Repost from @optimalperformance18 - At Optimal Performance 18 we believe that the mental game is just as important as the workout designs we create. Just like the workouts we like to keep our mental game varied as well.

This subject covers what we like to call "Icebergs". These are deeply held beliefs that an individual holds near and dear to them. They usually come in two basic forms; either how we believe something "should" be or how it "is". This are usually hard statements. Such as a man should be muscular and focused only on the big 3 lifts.

Identifying these "Icebergs" can help us realize when we are unknowingly holding ourselves back from achieving our goals or learning new things.

Repost from @optimalperformance18 - Active Recovery:

Here at Optimal Performance 18 we believe in rest days, however we hate to waste a day without working out because we are always striving to improve ourselves and see growth.
So we use active recovery days to stretch, row or bike to loosen up and then work on accessory work. The accessory work can be anything that you personally feel you need to work on yourself. This could be ring work, bar work, or even working on the techniques of your lifts.
By spending time perfecting these fine details or practicing new movements on the active recovery day we save ourselves from wasting valuable workout time hammering out small items.

What kind of accessory work do you do to boost your own performance or learn new things?

Form is key for the snatches, remember to catch properly and drive through your heals.
Loosen your grip on the up portion of the chest to bar so as to save your hands.
As with everything we do at OP18 form first, time second
The Mental Aspect for this workout will come from motivation. You will need to dig deep to keep yourself motivated especially if either of these movements are not a particular strength of yours.

Try to set up and stick to a specific rep scheme.

Do not try to knock out the first 20 unbroken unless you know you can get at least one more set of 20 unbroken.
Remember to breathe and as always, form over time!

This workout is a grind so mental resiliency will come into play under our Real-Time Resiliency Skill. As you get tired and change up your rest periods remember to continue challenging yourself with each rep scheme. Keep the positive thoughts and evidence based thoughts of past workouts ready to combat the thoughts of stopping or taking exceedingly long breaks

Workout Tips:
This is an endurance workout that should help build up shoulder strength.

As with all of our workouts at OptimalPerformance18 we want you to focus on form over time. Ensure you have the best possible form for each exercise.

A tight core through all of the movements will help keep the body stable for proper form.

The mental aspect comes through in this one by motivating yourself. There may be a movement you are not good at or easily get bored with. However the more internal motivation you can find the better outlook you will have trying to finish the workout.

Workout tips:
It is important to practice the major lifts.
Using percentages is a great way to improve.
Always use proper form. Resting as needed between sets.

This workout lends itself to using a particular mental skill we teach called Real Time Resiliency. It teaches how to overcome negative/counterproductive thoughts as they occur with positive/conductive ones instead.
If you find yourself struggling give yourself the mental cue that you have lift more in the past and focus on previous practices to help build the proper form.

I now have about three different people reminding me to drink more water.
Don't down your water all in one shot though... It's not the best idea. Small sips!

Repost from @optimalperformance18 - Work out tips:
During dumbbell snatches after full extention of the dumbbell bring it back down but do not switch hands till the dumbbell is below your face.
If you have to break up the rep scheme be sure to set a specific number to shoot for before you rest.
Goals will lead to success and a quick time on this workout.
Our dumbbell weight was 50lbs and one of our program designers netted himself a time of 6:53

As always form over time and get after it ๐Ÿค™

Workout Tips:

As always focus on form over time!!! Dumbbell thrusters are a good practice for barbell thrusters. Keeping the weight a bit lower at 35 pounds will allow you to maintain great form while going unbroken for all the reps prescribed.

Dumbbell Burpee Deadlifts are a unique movement that most people never practice and will provide good practice on a technical movement.

The clean and jerks at the end are conducted at a low weight so you can crush them unbroken!!! Aim for a 7 min time cap on the workout.

We promote active recovery days here at Optimal Performance 18, because rest days are important but they also afford you time in your schedule to practice accessory work. Here is some accessory work being done by one of our Co-Founders, Justin McLendon.

This is the main workout I did today, brought to you by @optimalperformance18
My time was 13:07
Regrann from @optimalperformance18 - Work out tips:
Stay at a consistent pace.
Do with or without the weighted vest, one of our athletes is training with the vest to become more familiar with moving across distance under load.

A good goal for your time is under 17 minutes with or without vest.
Focus on your form on the Med Ball Cleans hinging at the hips and lowering to a squat position to pick up the ball. Alternate shoulders so as to not favor one side.
Best of luck!

When you are dedicated to working out this statement is more often true then not true. Beginners shy away from the pain and give up but they need to embrace the results off their hard work. Stick with it people and seek help when needed.

Regrann from @optimalperformance18 - This sign is good idea of how working out can go sometimes. The average person gets excited each year around New Year's to make resolution to get in better shape. However they sign up for the local gym or buy the new fad DVD workout and realize they have no idea to go from their current fitness level to the one they are imagining in their head.

This is a big part of why we have included Goal Setting in our classes focused on Mental Resilience in relation to physical fitness. We want to use our experience and knowledge to help you decipher the confusing trails leading to your goals and make that "sign" a bit easier to read.
For more info on our programming email us at optimalperformance18@gmail.com

We look forward to working with you in the near future

Repost from @optimalperformance18 - Workout Tips:
This is a CrossFit benchmark work out. In the community you will rarely hear "what do you bench?" But rather, "bro.... What's your Fran time bro?" For us at OP18 we always focus more on Form before we worry anything about time but it is possible to do both. If you are new to a "just go" workout like this that you set deliberate rest periods. I.e. on the set of 21 break it up into groups of 7.

Too often newer athletes will go unbroken on the first set and be sucking on the set of 15 and 9. Be a smart athlete. Be deliberate. Be better.
Remember that recording your times and even how you feel after a work out can help you tremendously when you retest it at a later date to gauge how you have improved

Workout Tips:
This is a CrossFit benchmark work out. In the community you will rarely hear "what do you bench?" But rather, "bro.... What's your Fran time bro?" For us at OP18 we always focus more on Form before we worry anything about time but it is possible to do both. If you are new to a "just go" workout like this that you set deliberate rest periods. I.e. on the set of 21 break it up into groups of 7.

Workout tips:
This is a recovery effort.
We always promote active rest days.
This allows you to manage soreness and keep your muscle fibers engaged without over taxing yourself.
Also use your active recovery days to work on skills that may be lacking. I.e. gymnastics, or band work.

Regrann from @optimalperformance18 - Workout Tips:
The snatch is a very complex movement. It requires explosive power, balance, and impeccable technique. It is important to practice movements like these.
The EMOM is set so that you have some intensity but also a rest period before your next attempt. Pausing 3 seconds in the bottom of the squat allows you to really focus on your balance after the catch.
Think through your feet placement, knee position, core engagement, shoulder stability, and head placement...then stand.
This movement is all about Form.

It is prescribed at 78% of your 1 Rep Max, however lighten the load if need be in order to really focus on your technique

Workout Tips:
For Time, however as always focus on form over time.

The first movement builds explosive power through the hips.

The second movement is designed to tax lung capacity and accuracy with targeted movements.

The third movement should be kept at a light weight to focus on shoulder mobility. Using a plate will help keep your arms closer together for the shoulder mobility

Sometimes rules are made to be broken. I mean I had to save Wichita at the end. Sheโ€™s one of the few โ€œfamilyโ€ members I have left. #rulesofsurvival #dontbeahero
