CrossFit Trivium – CrossFit

Daily Brief (No Measure)

We are getting into a strength conditioning EMOM, that will create a little bit of a battery work style feel to the workout. The Bike is meant to be after the Front Squat and the Ski Erg is meant to be after the Bench Press in order to add a touch of pump to the session even though the reps are only in the 3-5 rep range. We are not looking to push to maximal loads here for the sets, but more looking to keep in the range of about 2-3 reps in reserve on each set, even while building loads over the course of the 5 sets.

We are looking to prime the system here and build with a little primer barbell complex to practice catching the first front squat in a squat clean then standing up to complete the next two reps. Please keep the loads manageable and without the need for a spot on the Bench Press as we are probably going to have the entire class working at the same time. The goal for separation here would be to start athletes on the Front Squat and Bench, then if needed also have another two stations starting on the bike and the ski erg.
