40 Chest to Bar
WODprep Strategy Top Tips:
It’s the highlight of the year – it’s CrossFit Games time!
This week, we’ll be posting a series of workouts that are actually from this year’s Games. BUT, as we believe CrossFit should be as accessible as possible to everyone, we’ll be slightly adapting them. Saying that, we’ll be making sure to keep the same stimulus of what was intended, so don’t worry, you’ll still be getting the same experience as the Games athletes.
For today’s “variation”, we have swapped out the bike for a run, and in today’s YouTube video, you will be able to find out what are the best running shoes for you. There are no excuses why you can’t give this workout a go. So, grabs some grips, grab some shoes, and let’s go!
For this workout, the aim is to just hold on. If gymnastics is your thing, then pushing yourself to see how many big chunks (reps) you can do, is a great benchmark to see how you’ve progressed in your training. Otherwise, scale to your ability – you don’t want to be burning out on the gymnastics if 40 reps is a lot. Instead, aim for more manageable rep ranges, and be consistent at chipping away.
The first 800m should be moderate, so you have a chance at big sets for the chest to bar and then finish strong on the second 800m. So give it all you got, and really test yourself.
