Today's workout looks very different than anything we have done before in the box during a class. As you'll see below, the MetCon is pretty short, and only consists of 5 rounds of rowing sprints. While these should get you breathing pretty heavily, it is not the same amount of effort as the prior three days have been. After that, we end the day with some assistance work. The medicine ball push ups will teach core stability during a dynamic movement, while the active hang is not only good core training for all movements done on the bar or rings, but also works as shoulder pre-hab. It is nearly impossible to keep doing CrossFit with jacked up shoulders, so we have to keep them healthy!
Strength: Strict Overhead Press
MetCon: Rowing Sprint Test
