FRIDAY 5.10.2019

STRONG

Back Squat 

If you were able to do 10 sets of 10 using 60 second rest intervals. today you can increase the weight on the bar by 4-to-5%, then complete 10 sets of 10 reps

If the 4-5 % increase seems like it may be too much, use an increase of 2-3% instead.

If you used 135 and were able to do all 10 X 10, the 4-5% increase would mean you would be working with 140- 145 today.

If you used 185 the jump would be 8-9 pounds.

Scale the increase as necessary.....

"Goat Day"

On the Minute x 20

Odd Minutes: Movement 1

Even Minutes: Movement 2

"Goat" is CrossFit slang for a movement that challenges us. Examples: Double-Unders, Ring Dips, Overhead Squats. These are the best days to turn perceived "weaknesses" into "strengths." No better way to do that than today.

"Goat Days" give you an opportunity to refine skills or work on your weaknesses. Today is geared towards "practice," dialing in our mechanics with a controlled heart rate. As an example, to improve the technique of double-unders, we want to practice at a low-intensity where we can really focus on the mechanics of the hands and the timing of the jump.
