CrossFit Indian Trail – CrossFit
Warm-up (No Measure)
“Give more. Give what you didn’t get. Love more. Drop the old story.”
We often hold onto the past. And we all have felt ourselves do it. Sometimes they are worn as scars, sometimes like trophies. It’s not uncommon to use past events as a chip on your shoulder. “They didn’t believe in me”. All of those are potent motivators. But they only last so long, as they are fleeting and weaker forms of ammunition.
When we “fight against” something, such as something in the past, we will only go so far. When we “fight for” something, it’s different. It’s purpose and meaning go beyond our singular life, transcending to something far bigger. This is where you can move mountains.
Do you hold onto something from the past? Can we reframe the mental dialogue?

of 1RM Front Squat
– Week 1 of 5 of this squat progression.
– Week after week, we’ll reduce the reps-per-set, *while* increasing the total rounds.
– Purpose here is to build strength and risilience in our ability to cycle through higher volume squats… a very common demand in competition, no less the Open.
– To be clear, the barbell is loaded with a SINGLE weight for all squats, with your individualized percentage above.
– Dual Dumbbell Front Squat
– Goblet Squat
– Sandbag Squat
– Odd Object Squat
– Weighted Alt. Reverse Lunge
Chasing Waterfalls (Time)
30/24 Cal Row
30 Wall Balls (20 / 14 lb)
30 Alternating Dumbbell Power Snatches (50 / 35 lb)
– Mid-to-long range time domain (~20:00), where our aim is consistency across the four rounds.
– The loads on both the wallball and dumbbell snatch are on the lighter side so that we can complete the first round unbroken (and easily) if we went for it.
THE BIG TAKEAWAYS:
1. Push for large sets on the wallballs and snatches.
2. The row is the “pacer” of the triplet.
WALLBALLS AND SNATCHES
– An overarching theme for today’s effort is to minimize the amount of time *not* working.
– The place we would find ourselves at a dead-stop would be here… breaks on the wallballs and breaks on the snatches.
– When we pace the row accordingly, we can push for larger sets on these movements, minimizing those seconds.
– A single break on each is appropriate, with this naturally coming down to individual capacity.
– Our gameplan on the wallballs and snatches helps determine our pacing here on the row.
– This is the “pacer” of the workout, where we are purposefully holding back a bit here so that we can push the other two movements.
– Seconds in transition absolutely matter here, as the movement into and out of the rower is an easy handful of seconds we can gain (or lose) with minimal effort.
