CrossFit MSD – CrossFit

Warm-up (No Measure)

2-3min general mobility flow then into the DB warm up

4 sets on each arm of:

5 SA DB snatch + 15m OH carry + 5 SA DB push press + 15m OH carry

*Go as heavy as good form allows. this is a sneaky strength session.

*Push press is a slower down than up tempo.

A: Metcon (No Measure)

10 sets NFT, but just intensity and good movement:

12 KB swings 32/24kg

:20 AB or row @ 95% effort

-rest 2min
the goal today is going hard and fast on your AB/row spint after your set of KB swings. The KB swings must be UB. pick a weight that challenge you, but allow for this to happen.

there is no score today, but keep a personal track on how many cals you get each set etc.

DO NOT SPRINT AT 100% because you will just die in the ass. The goal is to be able to repeat a high effort over and over. Think 95% max speed.

B: Metcon (No Measure)

10-15min COOL DOWN:

take time to do an easy spin, have a row, go for a walk etc…… Keep moving before you stop. After you have moved for at least 5-10min then you can if needed, hit some stretching, foam roller etc.

Priority is in the easy movement work to finish off.

height for step ups is your normal step up height today and you pick the weight too. This is a strength session, but also endurance too and quality on the step ups is key.

When and why did you start training with us here at CrossFit MSD?
Pretty sure it was March?. Kye kept telling me how much I’d love it, Was training solo before but not pushing myself as much as I could. The idea of having coaches teaching you grabbed me. Mason is like a dog at a bone lol…. his persistence paid off too.
What have you achieved since training with us at CrossFit MSD?
I’ve achieved more then I thought I could already, Olympic lifts… if you want to feel empowered give it a crack. Adding weight to my lifts. I can say I enjoy cardio now (running wasn’t even an option before). Making weaknesses new strengths. Crossfit has given me a great sense of achievement personally, I leave feeling like I have learned something new each day.
Who is Jessie away from the box? Work, hobbies, family life, etc
I love my family, married with 3 children. I love the ocean and good music. Coffee lover. Cafe hopper. I motivate myself to clean my house with big beats and awkward dancing.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself?
The scar on my shoulder is from a surfing incident when I was 16.
What are your goals for the next 12 months?
Squat more than my body weight. Hit 100kg deadlift. Unassisted pull-ups for reps. Learn more, master more. Muscle up….. compete.
Do you have any words or some advice to anyone who may be on the fence about doing CrossFit?
Don’t waste your time wondering just go and do it, and go again. It is worth it!

12min EMOM:

1) strict ring dips ME in :35

Same for the strict chin ups (chin up is palms facing you grip). Scale as needed today, use a band or today you can do negatives. Use a jump to get your chin over the bar, then try to lower yourself with control to a hang position.
