Grip that Heart Rate!

CrossFit Carolina Beach – CrossFit

– Strength: This front squat has an isometric hold/pause at the bottom where the muscle will remain contracted for 2 seconds. Keep this in mind as you’re working up. This weight will be less than your 1RM FS squat weight; probably between 80% of your 1RM. 2 min rest between sets.
– Metcon: This workout should elevate your heart rate and will also test grip and skill. Break up sets early as needed with short rests. Note: cleans will be increasing in weight. If you plan on doing C2B you should comfortably have a set of at least 5
