Heart Breaker

CrossFit Carolina Beach – CrossFit

-Strength: Today’s strength work will be performed with a barbell. You will work up to a 1RM floor press. Start with a set of 5 and gradually reduce reps to singles as weight increases. We last tested this movement on 9/21. Rest 2 minutes between heavy singles. The second portion of the strength work will be to warm up your power clean and S2OH for the workout. Complete sets of 2 power cleans and 2 S2OH up to your working weight. This should give you an idea of what to expect in the workout
– Metcon: Plan on completing this around 80% intensity. It will be easy to redline early on in this workout so pace the first couple of rounds and leave some gas in the tank. Loading needs to be light on this workout as shoulder fatigue will set in fast if you’re not smart with weight choices.
