Get Ready to Lift!

February 21, 2017

For the next 5 weeks, health we’ll be smashing the CrossFit Open.  I like to set a predictable strength program that both keeps us feeling strong but not overly taxed.  On Monday’s we will work Front Squat Double.  If you are feeling froggy, you can throw that weight overhead with a thruster or a jerk to feel that position.

On Wednesdays, we will do a little longer session.  In 15 minutes, you will build to a heavy Power Clean and Push Jerk.  I recommend starting light, and adding a little weight after each lift.  So, you first lift may be 75, then 95, then 115, then 135, 145, 155, 165, 175, 185, 195, 205, 215 and finish with 225.

At the 15 minute point, you will use your final barbell weight to pull a deadlift triple.  In the same manner, add weight after each set, until you are pulling a heavy, but nowhere near maximal, triple.
