10354949_10152137637806751_5653578521178331516_n

STRENGTH

A. Back Squat, 3-3-3-1-1-1, 80-85% of 1RM (no heavier), up to 90 sec rest

B. Shoulder Press, 5-5-5-3-3-3, 65% of 1RM, 60 sec rest

Notes: Back Squats should not approach heavier than 85% for singles – we are still de-loading this week by keeping volume low but moving up a little in intensity.  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:

  • Airdyne Sprint, 15 sec all out, 2:30 rest, 5 sets — Should take a little over 11 minutes from start to finish so share airdyne and work in sets together

Option 2:

  • Hill Sprint x 3-5 sets, rest interval is walking slowly back down hill (start at entrance to parking lot and run to Coleman St. intersection) – make sure you are warmed up well for this!

Other Notes: If you are planning to add in the optional work for today, expect the workout to take at least an hour to complete (strength work will take up most of 45 minute session)
