“It’s not the load that breaks an individual down. It’s the load they are not prepared for.”

Crossfit – Tempo Bench Day + Bikes and Bars
The weights on the bench press should become slightly heavier this week. The weight you are adding should not compromise your technique or the tempo of your lift. After our strength session we’ll move on to our conditioning. We have five rounds of bike calories and toes-to-bar. Our goal for this type of workout is to maintain consistent RPMs on the bike. Athletes should strive to stay around 60-65 RPMs.

Crossfit – Heavy 3-Rep Hang Power Snatch + Lockout or Lookout
Receiving the barbell with soft elbows is undeniably one of the scariest situations a lifter could be faced with when moving a heavy load overhead. We’ll be taking a step back in our progression to really identify the purpose of the punch under the barbell in the snatch. We’ll complete a heavy 3 rep hang snatch after our progressions, and move onto our conditioning. The conditioning for today is not for score and will give athletes and opportunity to work on punching under the bar in the hang snatch under fatigue. Athletes should also expect to see plate ground to overheads, hand-release push-ups and running.
