Back squat


*Heavier then your last 5rm




Toes 2 bar

Push press 60/40kg

Deadlift 60/40kg


Additional Work (get in early)

Work on muscle ups for 15minutes

If you have them, make them awesome, If you don’t have them work towards getting them and if you're a long way off getting a muscle up ask yourself what’s missing (technique, strength). If you are really confused ask your coach….

I then expect everyone who wishes to compete in the sport of CrossFit to start practicing these more. Just because we don’t program them often doesn’t mean you shouldn't practice these skill.

As an athlete wishing to compete you should be practicing your MU’s, dips, HSPU, HS walking, bar MU’s, pistols etc. Any advance CrossFit gymnastics should be practiced often, otherwise you will not improve…


This is a cool drill to practice your muscle ups

If you are on a rest day please come in and do some skill work and mobility, I guarantee you need the skill work and mobility. Everyone does.

If you are not on a rest day, there is no excuse for not showing up. I don’t care if you don’t like running, rowing, skipping or the combination. It may be boring, you may think you’ll lose your gains, but you need to get over it and show up. These days are important. Our strength days are important. You’re a CrossFit athlete, so don’t pick and choose please…..



For time compete the following:

Buy in- 500m row AHAP (this will be scored)


3 rounds of:

Run 625m

75 double unders


Score will be your 500m time and your overall time so don’t game the row. Try set a PB on it.

Front squat
