WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

We’re diving into “Squat and Pull,” a challenging CrossFit session. First things first, warm-up well to get those muscles ready. Jump rope, leg swings, air squats, the whole shebang.

Now, the main event:

  • Back Squats: Use a barbell at 50% of your max or 135/95 pounds. Keep that back straight, and squat like a pro. Break it into manageable sets – say 9, 7, 6, 5 for the first round.
  • Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups (C2B): If you can’t do chest-to-bar, regular pull-ups work. Break these up too, maybe 6 or 7 at a time.

Round 1: Start strong. Squats, then C2Bs.
Round 2: Divide the squats, keep C2Bs steady.
Round 3: Squats in 2-3 sets. Take short breaks with C2Bs.
Round 4: The home stretch! Push for bigger squats and hang on to C2Bs.

Remember, the time cap is 13 minutes, so no time to dilly-dally. And, don’t forget to cool down and stretch after.

Feel the burn, but don’t burn out, and you’ll crush this “Squat and Pull” workout!
