Friday 20120427 Open Workout

Posted: April 26, 2012 by totactfit01 in Uncategorized


-Spend 10 minutes working hip mobility

Go through the Super Squat Hip sequence, the groin stretch from earlier this month.  Use the time for whatever one you want to try.  Or, try this new one…

I’ll say it for you….OUCH!!!! 🙂  Be careful with this one, and please use a partner when placing the plate on and off.  Team up, you’ll have time.

-Spend 5 minutes “Mashing” triceps to get a good front squat rack position.

-Work muscle up technique

Video Courtesy of CrossFit Santa Clara.  Jason Khalipa going over the Muscle Up Technique.  For a lot of you, this will be the second or third time this month you’ll be getting to work on this technique.  How far into the progression did you get last time?  Did you get a muscle up?   Did you get past doing these on your knees?  Where would be a good place to find this info?  YOUR LOGBOOK!  You don’t have one?  What?  Having a log book is so essential to tracking your progress.  Results happen at a better pace when you track them!
