• APRIL OVERVIEW

    Now that the CrossFit Open is over it’s a great time to introduce some new movements and a new template. Our new template now will include an additional upper-body day which means that our upper-body work will consist of:

    • Max Effort Training
    • Dynamic Effort Training
    • Repetition Work

    This is also a great time to establish some new goals. Many of you have had amazing progress throughout The Open, and are maybe more capable than you previously though. With the inclusion of an additional upper body day, will have the ability to build toward some of those more upper-body demanding movements. Pulling movements such as pull-ups, muscle ups, rope climbs; and pushing movements such as pushups, handstand pushups, ring dips.

    The blend of conditioning work will remain consistent in terms of high threshold vs. low threshold, but this particular block of programming will include alactic work which requires short bouts of intense work followed by longer rest intervals.

    Expect to see an increase in GPP measures (loaded carries) this block and subsequent blocks as this work will be included in specific conditioning pieces. Keep your eye on pacing recommendations as always.
