TWIX

CrossFit Boro – CrossFit

Our strength work for today will improve our overhead pressing ability but will also challenge our ability to remain braced throughout our abdomen and low-back area, which is a concern for many athletes. Be prudent about the weights you choose to build up to so that you can maintain the 3-sec negative.

This workout mixes in a longer distance effort run than we typically see (yay, endurance!) with a pull/push upper body combo. The run should give your shoulders and forearms plenty of time to recover before jumping on the rope again then banging out your push-ups. This time cap will be tight-fitting. Be sure to scale appropriately to maintain the desired stimulus (which means finishing prior to 18 minutes!)
