Thursday Workout: Strength Day v4

4th of July Schedule Reminder: We will have only 1 class on Friday at 10am.  It’s open to anyone, so come prepared for a fun team workout!



A. Back Squat, 5-5-5-5-5, same weight as Monday, 75 sec rest

B. Shoulder Press, 3-3-3-3-3 (~5# heavier than last week), 75 sec rest between sets

Strength days are important to improving your performance in CrossFit and increasing your metabolism. Don’t skip out on these days!

Post-Strength WORK (ON YOUR OWN)

Option 1:

  • 3 Sets: 15 GHD Sit-ups, 15 Back Extensions, rest as needed between sets (should be controlled movement, not for time)

Option 2:

  • Hill Sprint x 3, Start at end of parking lot and run to top of the hill (Coleman St intersection).  Rest interval is time it takes you to slowly walk back down — make sure you are well warmed up for this!! Take it easier on first sprint if necessary
