The weather has been great…so we’re going to keep running!
It’s pretty cool to see Iceland Annie in Vogue magazine. One of the most common concerns that I hear from women starting CrossFit is being afraid of getting bulky. Strong is sexy, ladies (and you won’t get bulky)!
Push the pace going through your front squats so we’ll have enough time to get through part B.
Front Squats – 5 sets of 3
15 Goblet Squats (24/16)
20 American KB swings (24/16)
Run 400 meters
rest 2 minutes between rounds
make note of the time at the finish and start of each round

A solid bench set up, notice the butt is still on the bench feet are on the ground, shoulders are back which causes a slight arch. Make sure to connect your feet to the ground when benching, and use plates when needed to reach the ground.

60 seconds of plyo push ups

I bet the Ultimate Warrior did split jerks. Today we’ll be using barbells instead of people.
Here is my recommended mobilization of the day. Check it out, this is a good one to improve thoracic spine extension and overhead position.

3 Rounds for time
