What a Cluster

CrossFit Carolina Beach – Competitors Training

– Strength: The purpose of today is to perform ”cluster sets” (intra-set rest) to incur more volume with heavier loading – think of this is a method to incur more volume with heavier loading without the risk of technical breakdown. The goal is to build to a challenging set over the course of 5-6 sets. Start at 50% of 1RM Front Squat – a good goal is to build to 85% of 1RM Front Squat on the final set – unless you’re using chains.

– Metcon: Today’s metcon is NOT FOR TIME which should allow you to focus on good form with movements. Your HS Walk should be UB and if you’re a ninja you can do this over obstacles. The weights for the power cleans ascend today on each round.
