Barbell Club – Sat, Aug 26

CrossFit Fixx – Barbell Club

Workout Notes

Perform 5 moderate-to-heavy sets (80% and higher). Build to a top-set, but leave 5-10 lbs in the tank. DO NOT go as heavy as possible.

The bar should contact closer to the sternum/ribs than the collarbone for the pause.

In Accessory – I, add 5-10 lbs from last week and perform all sets at the same load. All reps must be unbroken. If the loads feel unreasonably heavy today, go lighter than last week and focus on maintaining sound mechanics.

In Accessory – II, set up the seated box jumps where the hips are parallel with the knees while seated.
