IRIDIUM CrossFit – CrossFit
Slower-paced workout to build upper-body strength and strength endurance, and to recover from Manion.
While one athlete works, the other rests. Athletes will go back and forth for 2:00 at each station over 5 rounds. Their score is the total number of rounds completed in 20:00.
Today’s workout is going to test your athletes’ upper-body muscular endurance. Their goal is to perform as many reps as possible. The sets they complete should be repeatable for the entire workout.
The weight for the bench press should be light to moderate. Athletes should use a load that allows them to perform 5-10 reps of the bench press throughout the entire workout.
Athletes should be able to perform 2-5 reps of L pull-ups throughout the entire workout.
