CrossFit MSD – CrossFit


Warm-up (No Measure)

8min on the clock to:


Every :30 get off and do 50 single skips + 5 scap pull ups

Then start prepping for skill work.


12min EMOM of:

odd- x TTB

even- x strict HSPU

x = a number that is a challenge, but you can maintain across each round without coming close to failing a rep. A number that’s hard, but still allows you work the skill.

Scale as needed. TTB should be linking reps. If this means linking knee to chest or toes close to bar, that’s what you should be doing today. For HSPU, scale to 3-5 negatives (:3-:5). You kick up, slowly lower yourself down till your head touches gently, then stand up kick up and repeat. Or work quality pike HSPU (hips over shoulders).


A1: DB/KB strict press (4x 8-12)

-Rest 1min before A2

:3 lower on each rep.

This is with a DB/KB in each hand while standing.

A2: Ring Rows (4x 8-12)

-rest 2min before A1

:3 pause on chest, :3 lowers.

If rings rows are “to easy” for you, then you aren’t doing them correct. This will benefit everyone, even if you can do pull ups.

Weightlifting Wednesday is back!!!

CrossFit MSD – CrossFit



Warm-up (No Measure)

5min on the clock to row/AB/skip to get a sweat up and get warm.

Then we will start working on the snatch, giving 5min for a general barbell warm up then a few min to build into your first work set. We will do the same for the C&J.


A: Snatch (10×1 @ 85-90%)

Rest 1min between sets

Go no heavier than 90% of your 1rm. Make all the reps feel smooth and crisp.

Start at 85% and add small amount of weight if it feels good.

Move like you care today.

B: Clean and Jerk (10×1 @ 85-90%)

As above on snatch work…..

Warm-up (No Measure)

5min mobility flow as a group

5-8 squat jumps*

10 pallof press (es)

x 3 sets

*After jumping up, land as if you where catching a power snatch/clean before standing up and repeating.


Back Squat (3×5 @ 84-89%)

:3 lower, no pause, fast up then :2 at the top.

Add 2% from the other week.

Same weight each set.


Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds)

20min EMOM of:

1) 10 front squats @ 45-55% BS weight (:3 lowers)

2) 10-15 no push up burpees

3) 10-20 box jumps 24/20″ (sd)

4) rest/walk
* Racks can be used.

Be sure of the tempo on the FS work. Neglecting it means you fail to complete the round.

Pick the weight and reps that work for you. Challenge yourself as much as possible, but make sure you don’t miss a round. I want everyone to complete 20rounds today.
