The CrossFit Games are upon us! The first workout is easy! Psych!
Seriously, beware easy. Respect it. The weights are light and the movements are simple. Guess what that means? There is no reason to stop.
Heres my recommendation. Warm up with 4 minutes of rowing or running. Two minutes easy. One minute moderate. Last minute is a sprint.
Get your shoulders, front rack, hamstrings and ankles ready to go.
Do one round as fast as you can. Check the time. Rest for 90 seconds.
Do a round slow. Try to be smooth and keep you heart rate down and your breathing in control.
What is the difference in time? There are 10 rounds, and it’s a burpee workout. If your burpees become slow, the whole workout will really slow down.
It’s a 15 minute workout, so to finish, you will need to do rounds in 90 seconds or less. Try starting out at 80%, and holding that pace. If you can push harder, try to finish stronger than you started. Empty the tank at round 9.
I know you can do Snatch, but I see no reason to do that.
