Workout Of The Day

  • CCF Crossfit Cleveland WOD 042414 - Presses and MetCon Complex


    Get excited for tomorrow! Big day planned at the box for you guys. We will begin with 3 rounds of all three foundational presses. The rep scheme has been chosen so that as you wear down, you should still be able to complete the appropriate load as you move throughout the 3 presses. For example, your push press should be stronger than your shoulder press, and your push jerk stronger than your push press. The intervals should also allow adequate time to recover. This is our strength portion so you should be challenging yourself every rep for each round. 

    After the strength WOD we will continue with a MetCon that resembles a squat clean complex. You are working to achieve both a high load and a good time so you will need to put some thought into what weight you will use. We will also be using the same bar for all three movements in this portion. Get some rest we'll see you guys tomorrow!
