CrossFit Open Workout 18.2 comes out this Thursday. What do you think it will be? Something with a Barbell or more Dumbbells? More Gymnastics? Come by we will be streaming it at 6pm.
Thursday’s Training Intent:
– Strength: 4 sets of Box Squats for speed today. We’ll be running these the next 3 weeks. Make sure you’re able to be explosive on each set. Speed is more important than loading. We’ll then end our sets with 3 x 3 up to a heavy set (not max). Keep track of what weights you use today.
– Metcon: This workout is intended to be more aerobic which by improving the aerobic system we improve our recovery and ability to be powerful with higher threshold movements. Each interval is intended to be a full 60s of work. Keep in mind 18.2 will take place tomorrow so today is not intended to break you down.
Wide Stance Box Squat: 4 x 5 @60%, every 60s.
*Use a 15″ Box
*If you have access to chains or bands, use them and drop the load to 50% for speed sets.
Then, 3 sets of 3 of up to a challenging set Wide Stance Box Squat. Rest 90s-2:00
*Same box now working up to a heavy set of 3 resting 90s-2:00 between sets. This should heavy but not a max. Have spotters on both sides of the bar just in case.
EMOM 16 w. a partner:
