Level 2: CrossFit
Today’s workout has a double-under cash-in and check-out. In between is a five rounder of rope climbs and heavy kettlebell sumo deadlift high pull. Time cap of 15 minutes (conditioning focus).
The week’s heavy day but with a twist. Three movements: clean, jerk and back squat – it’s a strength day but the structure will have a MetCon feel to it (strength focus).
Runs with rounds of benchmark girl WODs ‘Cindy’ and ‘Mary’ within a 20 minute AMRAP. Gymnastics heavy session (conditioning focus).
We revisit an old CrossFit Games workout today featuring heavy deadlifts and box jumps. The WOD is 8 minutes in duration (conditioning focus).
Couplet on Friday of power snatches and dumbbell front squats across 10 rounds with a 15 minute time cap (conditioning focus).
Bench press makes an appearance today. Effectively two small couplet workouts with a rest in between, both with bench press and then a weighted push and a weighted carry (strength/conditioning focus).
