CrossFit Hanover – CrossFit
Warm-up (No Measure)
3min cardio followed by 2x
100′ Bear Crawl
5 Inchworms w/ Pushup
10 Goblet Squats
Bulgarian Split Squat (5,5,5 ea w/ Barbell in Front Rack (Ideally))
You want absolute control on these – balance is obviously going to be a challenge – if you can’t do them, scale to a different version of the movement so you can. These should all be heavy sets (which is relative to the person and their comfort level with the movement) – feel free to use the squat rack when setting up.
Goblet Squat (10,10,10 w/ Heels Elevated)
These are for weight – go heavy and don’t count your work sets until you’re working hard and fighting for position.
[Weighted] Back Extension (3×15 Reps)
Using the GHD, perform the required number of Back Extensions, using weight if possible. If you’re new to using the GHD, do them without weight until you feel comfortable.
TEMPO – Explode on the way up, 1 second pause at the top, then 2-3 second return to the bottom.
*If you choose to use weight, log the heaviest set into Wodify.
If you’re able to do these weighted, great. If you’ve never done them weighted, ease into it and maybe don’t use weight for all the sets. Be smart about this one and scale to supermans if you need to.
Metcon (AMRAP – Rounds and Reps)
9 Power Snatches 95/65#
*For HSPU, choose a gymnastics progression and make it a challenge. Remember, RANGE OF MOTION is more important in developing strength than scaling HSPU in any direction that cuts out ROM. Legitimate pushups will get you HSPU faster than doing HSPU to 3 ab-mats, every single time. Emphasize ROM.
