View Public Whiteboard


Warm-up (No Measure)

Crossover Symmetry Activation


2 Sets:

1:30 Ski

20 Good Mornings

15 Plate Hops

10 Lunge w/Twist

5 Strict Pullups


Warmup to Clean/Deadlift Weights


Armistice (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)

Complete AMRAP in 11 minutes:

11 Power Cleans (135/95)

11 Burpees Over the Bar

19 Deadlifts (135/95)

18 Pull-Ups
On an 11-minute clock, complete as many rounds and repetitions as possible (AMRAP) of the prescribed work in the order written.

Score is the total number of rounds and repetitions completed before the 11-minute clock stops.

Tips and Strategy:

3 out of the 4 movements in “Armistice” are “pulling movements,” which means your grip and forearms are going to be severely taxed.

To avoid burnout, complete smaller sets of the Power Cleans, Deadlifts, and Pull-Ups. Break up your reps so you can rest very briefly to give your grip a break, and then get right back to work.

Use a hook grip for the Power Cleans and try this rep scheme to avoid overload:

Power Cleans: 4, 4, 3

Burpees Over the Bar: Steady pace

Deadlifts: 7, 7, 5

Pull-Ups: 7, 7, 4

Intended Stimulus:

This WOD should feel really brutal. It’s only 11 minutes long, so you should be able to move quickly—long rest breaks will kill the intensity of “Armistice.”

The load today should feel pretty light and you should be able to move smoothly. Smaller, fast sets will keep you moving!
