CrossFit Carolina Beach – Competitors Training
– Strength: Today we are performing a superset of Strict Handstand push-ups and submax strict chin-ups.
Submax = 1-2 reps less than failure. These should be hard sets. Rest the full 2:00 after both movements. There should be no breakdown in form.
The purpose of those work is local fatigue training, but also reinforce good mechanics and train the triceps, delts, and biceps. Use a medium grip for the chin-ups today. Also, rep counts will likely fall off on each subsequent round which is okay today – but if the drop is drastic this is a sign that you are lacking in the local endurance department.
– Metcon: Today’s metcon should be a hard 80%-85% effort. You have 60s rest after each completed round which will allow for partial recovery. Pick a challenging pace and try to maintain for the duration of the workout. This workout is built to allow you to be able to push relatively hard while staying aerobic. How we mitigate relying on anaerobic metabolism is ensuring proper breathing on the Burpees.
