Abs of Steel

CrossFit Carolina Beach – CrossFit

– Strength: Clusters are ”intra-set rest” meaning you’ll perform 2 reps, re-rack, rest 15s, and repeat this sequence 2 more times. The purpose is to increase loading compared to just performing a straight set of 6 reps. Build in weight.
– Metcon: Today’s ”Metcon” is more of an accessory piece for the abs/lower body with the added incentive to hold onto the barbell longer to avoid doing burpees. Try to get your lunges done in no more than 3 sets. The weight you should choose should be difficult to complete 10+ reps with. Strategy is key with T2B as Front Rack Lunges are already demanding on the core. Break sets early on T2B to avoid excessive fatigue.
