Monday February 26th

Its CrossFit Open week! SIgn up! go to to find out what its all about. Its for everyone from beginners to experienced CrossFitters.
For the next 3 Fridays the workout of the day will be the CrossFit open workout. Friday Nights will be “Friday Night Lights” where we run heats of the open workout. I’ll bring my grill out and cook up some burgers. You don’t have to be signed up for the open to do the open workout. Come out on Friday nights, its lots of fun

Warm up
4 Lateral Box Step-Downs
2 Sets
8 Barbell Good Mornings
8 Barbell Cossack Squats
10 Back squats, you can add weight second set

warm up to your 70 percent then
Back Squat
Every 2:00 minutes, 5 Sets
1 x 5 @ 72%
1 x 5 @ 75%
1 x 4 @ 77%
1 x 4 @ 80%
1 x 3 @ 82%
Percentage is based on your 1-rep max Back Squat

Our Back Squats today will be on the 2:00 minute clock, which allows for just enough
rest to be able to recover and hit the next set with quality movement and speed on the
bar. The percentages today are meant to be moderate heavy with no reps looking like a
grind to finish.
If we need to scale the movement today, we can move to a Back Rack Reverse Lunge
for anyone with lower back discomfort, or modify to a Back Squat to parallel or to a box for those
with either knee or back pain. This will allow us to still create strength in the movement
patterns without overdoing the movement pattern that creates discomfort.


10:00 minute AMRAP
2-4-6-8…. Burpee Box Jump Overs
8 Dumbbell Squat Cleans
10 Chest to Bar Pull-Ups
Box Height: 24/20”
Dumbbells: 50/35lb, (22.5/15kg)

Goal: Complete the round of 10 Burpee Box Jump Overs.
Primary Objective: Complete the Dumbbell Squat Cleans and Chest to Bar movements
in two sets or less.
Secondary Objective: Choose a movement to lean into as a focus movement and push
the pace there, even if it means you need to slow down on the other two movements to
hit your focus movement better.

Athlete Notes + Workout Strategy:
Build intensity as this workout progresses. The workout really starts when you get to the
round of 6 Burpee Box Jumps, so start off the first 2 rounds building that intensity,
knowing that once you hit the 3rd round the body will be settling into pace a bit more and
fatigue will start to set in, which will challenge both the sets and pace on the Dumbbell
Squat Cleans as well as the Chest to Bar Pull-Ups. The best result is always finding a
way to rest the least during a workout, not how fast you perform each piece of the
workout. Sometimes quick short breaks and steady pacing throughout will be your best
approach rather than big fast sets with long rest periods. Create a plan, attack the
workout, and get after it today!
