Many athletes are looking to improve themselves to reach the next level: hit those higher skills like muscle-ups, handstand pushups, pistols, and more. In classes we practice the skills thoroughly enough, but maybe still can’t reach the goal because we’re not strong enough. Enter these accessories aka bodybuilding. If we know certain muscle groups don’t have the strength for these skills we need to do some extra homework. Consistent practice will improve muscle strength and potentially size (because before you know it, Summer will be here.) Hypertrophy will come if you’re eating in a surplus- otherwise those muscles won’t grow- they’ll get strong as hell though.
Basically every day, Monday through Saturday, before or after your workout at the gym you can find the ThundrBro 100 10-Minute Finishers That Crush book in the back. ThundrBro was co-founded by Dave Lipson, a former competitive CrossFitter and Camille Leblanc-Bazinet’s husband. He’s moved into the physique and bodybuilding world so there’s an understanding of what we do on the regular. Inside the book there is a Post-It note with dates and which finisher to do each day.
I’ve done the work of writing the workout (and maybe adding some flourishes of my own) somewhere else on the page for easier reading. Once you finish the work INITIAL & DATE to show you’ve completed the job anywhere on the page.
Our goal is to Harry-Potter-and-the-Half-Blood-Prince the book for future athletes.
Since the work will be written out the variables on you will be a.) loading: you’ll need to use weights, heights, and resistance that leave only a handful of reps in reserve at the completion of each set; and b.) rest times: the book prescribes a static 2-3:00 rests between sets. While that works, our goal is volume accumulation so why not get more work done?
CrossFit WOD for Wednesday 2/26
“CELEBRATE LIFE” (from Wodapalooza 2020) for time: 50 wall ball, 30/20/14lbs to 10/9/9′ 40 calorie ski/row 30 dumbbell snatches, 70/50/35lbs 20 box jump overs, 36/28/20″ 15 bar muscle-ups
“In 2013, a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, a publication of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NCSA), found that 10 weeks of CrossFit improves body composition (among other things). But it also noted that among the study subjects, 16 percent had to drop out of the study early due to injury. That was a problem for CrossFit, Inc., says Tucker Jones, owner and head coach at Ballston CrossFit and CrossFit Route 7, because it was false. Some of the ‘injured’ athletes have sworn the information was fabricated, a retraction has since been added to the study and CrossFit, Inc. was awarded monetary compensation from the NCSA for the unsubstantiated claims (which the journal’s editor is said to have added in a later draft), [but] the damage was done. The media was quick to publish stories about the injury risk and the sport became known as dangerous.”
