Calling all CrossFit Malibuites with extra EZ-ups in your garage or storage! As we look towards next week, we see the potential for some rain. Send a quick text if you’ve got one for us to borrow for a few days next week to keep our outdoor stations dry! You are much appreciated!
Scroll down and checkout the workout before continuing to read on (also notice the link to ZOOM Yoga)… ok, now spend some time before class thinking this one through. After getting a mental feel for what a round will look and physically feel like, imagine yourself 10-12 minutes into this 20 minute AMRAP. What are your round looking like now? How are you breaking up the pull-ups? Push presses? The med ball cleans are going unbroken of course 😉 Many of you will find this type of strategizing beneficial for not only today’s 20 min AMRAP, but most long AMRAPs. Visualizing what your rounds will look like in terms of breaks and intensity before actually starting the workout helps prevent the “go all out at the start then crash and burn” feel that often accompanies longer workouts. If you see yourself breaking up the 8 pull-ups after a few rounds, then it is likely a good idea to start the workout breaking these sets up. Same goes for the push presses. Remember the intention is to get as many roundsas possible in 20 minutes, not to see how fast you can get through 2-3 rounds and then wait out the clock because you’re spent! You should aim at choosing scaling that allows you to complete the pull and press in 2 sets per round, and aim at going unbroken on the med ball cleans for as long as possible 🙂
