“The Yoke” with Rob Orlando
Choose between these two WODs:
Warm Up: 4 Round Tabata – Row for meters, sledge swings, hollow rocks, 10m sprint
Strength: 20 Barbell bench press at body weight plus or minus 15-20 lbs then 50 DB bench press at 1/4 body weight per hand (Women 70%)
METCON: “Any Way How”
100 DB or KB Snatch
75 Weighted Hand Release Pushups
50 Ring Dips
*You may partition as needed
Warm Up: 1k RUN then 30 swings, 15 strict pull-ups, 30 lunges
Strength: Stone load for max reps in 30 sec or at least 5 reps x 3 rds w/ 90 sec rest
Stones to Shoulder
*Scale is double the reps with pull-ups
Every THIRD minute on the minute complete the following –
10 x dumbbell burpee clean and press @ 50/35 pounds per hand
Movement starts by picking up the dumbbells. Complete a burpee while holding the dumbbells. Once you are standing upright clean and press the dumbbells to the overhead position.
My fastest set of 10 reps was 1:18 in the fourth round. If you finish your set of 10 in 1:35 you have 1:25 to rest until you start your next set of 10(start every 3rd minute for 5 rounds).

Event 3 — 1RM axle clean and press
Event 4 — Max distance atlas stone carry (any position allowed) as heavy as possible
NOTE – Unlimited warm up sets but only one actual work set…pretend you are in a competition. You may rest as needed between events
Who can come? Anyone with a PCF membership, no extra cost.
When is class? Starting this Sunday 0830 to 0930
What will class be like and why Strongman? Classes will run like a normal PCF Class with some Strongman movements. You do not have to be the Strongest Man (or Woman) to come to these classes or use Strongman movements. We will be using Strongman movements in conjunction with foundational movements (squats, presses, and deadlifts); Strongman movements are highly functional in their application, as well as fun and challenging for all levels. You will see improvement in your strength, particularly maximum effort lifts, as well as your general physical preparedness in workouts.
So, if flipping a tire, seeing how far you can get in farmer’s carry, walking with a yolk, pulling a sled or lifting an atlas stone while performing normal CF movements sounds like fun, then I encourage you to come out and give Strongman a try!
