Coach Dee will rock your socks. The founder of Crossfit Zone, Dee has recently found enough time to train herself in between performing a million different daily tasks at the gym and is looking as deadly as ever. She went into the Sectionals with minimal prep but represented well against some tough opposition. Since then Dee has been getting steadily stronger, faster, and better across the board.
She had the opportunity to enter as an individual in the Regionals but chose to support the team instead, putting the success of our team ahead of her own potential glory. A well-rounded crossfitter, Dee will do well in pretty much any WOD that comes up!
Buy-in – Clean and Jerk Technique – 3 rounds of: 3 straight arm jumps from hang, 3 drop clean, 3 hang power clean, 3 push press. Rest in between rounds, focus on crisp technique, generating power from the legs and quick movement of the elbows around the bar.
WOD – Gandalf
This workout is made up of two pairings of rowing and another exercise. The emphasis is on speed of movement and effort within each pairing but resting in between each set.
Clock will be set for 4 minutes per round
Pairing 1. 4 rounds for individual time of: Row 250 m, 6 floor to overhead (95/135)
Pairing 2. 4 rounds for individual time of: Row 250m, 15 wallballs (14/20)
Do 4 cycles of pairing one on a 4 minute timer and record your times as you go for each pass through the pairing. Move on to Pairing 2 and repeat. This means you will complete a total of 8 250m rows, 4 times through 6 floor to overheads, and 4 times through 15 wallballs.
Combine your slowest times from both Pairings to get your total time for the workout. The faster you work, the more rest you get!
