CrossFit Trivium – CrossFit

Daily Focus (No Measure)

We are starting off the day with some heavy Back Squats. As well as drop sets down, working our way into our weekly set of 20 that we have embarked on for this cycle. The goal is here two form. We will be working on absolute strength development at higher percentages and then work into our goal of improving muscular endurance, stamina, and overall capacity. This will lead us directly into warming up the barbell for Thrusters. The Thruster load is meant to be a load that should be at a weight that we can possibly do unbroken, but might break up do to the mixed metabolic fatigue we will have from the combo of Toes to Bar and Bar Facing Burpees. For class management purposes some smaller gyms might need to do lateral burpees, but we can also start athletes on a delay in order to mitigate issues with everyone doing bar facing burpees at the same time. The focus for the workout is to target midline capacity and stamina.
