CrossFit Trivium – CrossFit

Daily Focus (No Measure)

The focus today is on upper body muscular endurance and stamina with a pushing overload / interference style workout. The goal here is to combine a more static style strength movement with the Bench Press with a plyometric style movement to work a little bit of contrast training into the mix during our “deload” week. This should enhance neuromuscular coordination and speed of contraction. Spend some time talking through the warm-up and hitting the key points with the note that it should be done in 10:00 minutes or less. We want this in order to allow for true 1:1 work to rest for the workout. This will increase intensity for each set, but keep overall RPE down to closer to a 7/10 rather than a 8-9/10 if we were to reduce the rest between sets. For class management, we planned this out to do with a partner, where the partner does one full round before the next partner attacks the other set.
