BLK LBL Fitness Club – CrossFit®


**1. Movement Prep/Activation and Increasing Heart Rate**

Hip Halo Warmup


6 min AMRAP

100m Run

5 Sandbag Squats or Barbell Front Squats (lightweight)

10-sec Sandbag Front Hold or Front Rack Hold

**2. Strength Prep**

Strength: Athletes will build to a heavy single on Deadlifts over the course of 10 minutes. A heavy single is not a one-rep max. The difference is that a heavy single is difficult but could be completed again by the athlete on a second set. A one-rep max feels like a 100% effort, and the athlete would not want to do a second attempt on that same day at that weight. Focus on active lats, driving their feet through the floor and squeezing the butt at the top of the extension.

Stimulus is a moderate to moderate high intensity. Athletes should look to recover on the bike in-order to push the pace on the sandbag squats if a moderate effort is applied across.

We have performed a lot of Sandbag Cleans so let’s take it a step up and try squatting. Make sure athletes are careful with the movement.

Open Athletes: Keep the run distance the same and change it out to very light Front Squat to just move a little.
