CrossFit WOD, April 1, 2022



AMRAP 8 for Quality
1:00 Cardio Choice
10 x 1 and 1/4 Goblet Squats
8/8 Single Arm Ring Row 2020 Tempo
20 Bear Plank Shoulder Taps
3-4 minutes for small back squat build

Specific Prep

2-3 sets x 5-10 reps; building towards 50-60% of your 1RM as a good starting point for 8RM build

Back Squat: Brace through the midline. Create global tension and a full 360 degree breath on each rep. We should feel close to maximal effort at 5 and then fight for 6,7, and 8.

Scaling Considerations
Back Squat: We could move to a box squat for those with knee or back issues. And just adjust the height of the box in order to help minimize any issues the athlete may be feeling.



Back Squat (Find an 8RM in 15:00)

Specific Prep

Pull-Ups: Full extension at the bottom of each rep and chin over bar at the top of each rep. Focus on being rhythmic and relaxed throughout.
Push-Ups: You should be a moving plank and initiate the rep through the shoulders and not the elbows.
Abmat Sit-Ups: Hands must touch over head and touch the toes for the rep to be an "Rx" Rep.
Air Squat: Hip crease below parallel and show full hip extension at the top of each rep.

Scaling Considerations
Pull-Ups: Strict Banded Pull-Ups or Toenail Spot Pull-Ups as well as limiting the volume would help today.
Push-Ups: Same idea as the pull-ups for scaling mods. Band assisted, kneeling, and adjusting volume.
