Claudine Wong Interviews Diablo CrossFit Anejo

Mobility: Shoulder

Skill Practice Warm Up: Spend 10 min working on Bar Muscle up drills emphasizing the ‘glide kip’. Perform at least 4 sets of 3-5 reps. If still working on toes to bar, do the same trying to link 3-5 toes to bar each set.

Strength: 3-3-3-3-3 Shoulder Press (5 sets of 3 reps, increasing weight, max or above max by last set)

Super Set: 10-30s of hollow rocks between each set (use a progression that makes it hard and stay on the lower side of the time)

Metabolic Conditioning: “Smoke on the Water

Coaching Tips: The pace on the first row should be about 90% of your 500m best time. Break the first set of presses up so that you can catch your breath and let your legs rest a bit for the 400m. If you can do the rest unbroken, great! If not, try and break it up into even chunks (not 6 and 2, etc.). Make sure to take the time to keep the abs tight to prevent hyperextension of the lumbar or a soft midsection due to breathing. These are ‘strict’ shoulder presses, so make sure you ‘no rep’ yourself if you use your legs at all. Drop the bar, take a moment then finish with quality strict form!

Optional ‘Cash Out’: 15 dumbbell burpee clusters, 400m run with medball, 1 round
