Crossfit WOD – “RAISE THE BAR”

SQUAT CLEAN THRUSTER
OT90s x 7 Rounds:
25 Double-Unders (or 30 seconds of D.U.A)
1 Squat Clean Thruster

“RAISE THE BAR”
Ascending Ladder for 8 Minutes:
3 Thrusters (95/65), 3 Toes to Bar
6 Thrusters (95/65), 6 Toes to Bar
9 Thrusters (95/65), 9 Toes to Bar
Continue to add (3) repetitions to
each movement until time is called.

 

The first toe to bar is always the easiest to get but connecting a set can be challenging. First we recommend that you improve you kipping capacity. Improve not only in the small kipping range of motion but also in the large kipping range of motion. If you can aggressively do 8-10 large kips then stop on a dime at the bottom, not hopping down, then you ready to attempt some toes to bar. If you are just having issue with the rhythm then here is a great video where Chris Spealer explains some efficiency tips.

GHD sit ups, if done properly, can be a great midline strengthening exercise. Done incorrectly it can lead to back pain, hip pain, and excessive abdominal pain. Key performance points in a GHD sit up are 1.) A neutral spine. No Hyper extension. 2.) Bent knees on the way down. Locked out legs on the down down can place increased strain on the low back and over stretch the abdominals. 3.) Explosive knee extension, leg straightening,  while holding a straight spine will reduce unnecessary strain of the back and abdominal muscles. Slowly build your GHD capacity over time to reduce risk of injury or heavy delayed onset muscle soreness.
