Say it Again! Dare You!

Unleash Your Potential with “SAY IT AGAIN!” & “DARE YOU!” WODs: Double the Challenge, Double the Triumph

Get ready to push your limits and redefine what you’re capable of with not one, but two exhilarating Workout of the Day (WOD) challenges at the Academy of Self Defense in Santa Clara. The “SAY IT AGAIN!” featuring the Black Jack Sprawls and Squats, followed by the “DARE YOU!” challenge, are designed to test your endurance, strength, and agility. Whether you’re a fitness enthusiast seeking to elevate your routine or someone looking for an intense challenge, these workouts promise to deliver results, satisfaction, and maybe even a shout of victory.


The “SAY IT AGAIN!” WOD is a high-intensity session that will have you moving non-stop with a combination of sprawls and squats:

  • Black Jack (21 reps): Start with 1 sprawl and 20 squats, then 2 sprawls and 19 squats, continuing the pattern until you finish with 20 sprawls and 1 squat. This routine not only tests your stamina but also your mental grit as you count down from 21, the Black Jack magic number.

“DARE YOU!” WOD: Unleash Your Inner Warrior

After catching your breath from the “SAY IT AGAIN!” challenge, dive into the “DARE YOU!” WOD—a testament to your resilience and determination:

  • 10 GRIT MASTERS: A signature move that encompasses a full-body challenge, engaging every muscle group for maximum intensity.
  • 10 Left Elbow to Right Knee: Target your obliques and core stability with this dynamic cross-body movement.
  • 10 Plyo Push-Ups: Add an explosive element to traditional push-ups, enhancing upper body strength and power.
  • 10 Right Elbow to Left Knee: Ensure balance in your workout and core strength by mirroring the cross-body movement on the opposite side.
