Training Culture


It proposes a good strategy to avoid a puncture in the rowing. It should be a demanding pace but one that allows you to transition immediately to the toes to bar as soon as you finish. Plan how many cals you want to put in per minute.

Toes To Bar

It is not worth doing a set at failure. Try to keep breathing and to recover the muscles you have used in the rowing. Divide as many times as you think necessary so as not to make too high peaks of effort.

Wall Balls

The other day we made reference to different styles of wall ball, if you go to our reel, although it seems like a joke, we recommend that you use the 2 0 3 technique to avoid arm fatigue.

Keep breathing and try not to raise your heart rate too much!


Try to go to singles. Whether you do well or poorly with this weight, try to have the same timing from one rep to the next. The more experienced will go fast and the beginners will go slower. Whatever your group, try to be consistent.

Ring Muscle Ups

If you are one of those who have not yet mastered this movement, take it easy. Remember the technique, try to do it well. If you go for the first one, good luck!

If you already do them fluently, choose sets that do not make you reach failure or you will pay dearly for it.



Constant rhythm:
as it is a chipper we have 5 different exercises where we must be clear about my rhythm and capacity in each of them, it is about looking for a constant rhythm, different stimuli that will help us to be able to continue working and cope well.

Limiting factor:
For most athletes, except the most experienced, the ring muscle up will be the key moment, if you are not an expert, but you defend yourself, condition it to arrive as fresh as possible to the rings, if you do the version and they are not your forte, try to look for a good tie break that will be the time at the end of the 30 cleans.

Example of management:
Short splits with quick transitions into toes of effort on the rower, ball release every 10 reps with a short rest on the wall ball, and cleans to single reps.

Migala has suffered after leaving the program. In the last games, her result worsened (8th) compared to the previous year (6th). The same happened to her in the ROGUE Invitational (5th), worsening her previous record (3rd). She just won the Wodapalooza 2023 in teams, together with Laura Horvath. She has not announced her new coach yet.

Result: 276 reps

bkg 23.1

Lazar Djukic has taken the title of "King of Europe" from him. Despite this, he is the Icelandic male athlete with the longest career in the sport. In 2019 he was 3rd at the Games.

Lazar Djukic
Result: 287 reps

lazar djukic 23.1

8th in the last Games and winner of the Lowlands Throwdown semifinal. After winning the Madrid CrossFit Championship, he has been unlucky in competitions like the ROGUE, where he started twisting his ankle in the first running event and saw the rest of the competition affected. Or Dubai, where he suffered a heat stroke in the first event that left him last again and unable to recover well.
