Crossfit Garage – CrossFit
New Baseline (Time)
Paused Front Squat (5×3)
5 sets of 3 Paused Front Squats using 60-70% 1RM Adjust load as needed
Athletes will lower themselves into a below parallel front squat position, pause (come to a complete stopping point) before standing up out of the squat. Aim to not re-rack the bar between reps, completing 3 full reps before racking the bar
This workout is designed to test our ability to perform these functional body weight exercises while balancing correct form/ full range of movement and speed as we move through them. This is a sprint. We are aiming for the largest sets possible, and strategizing beforehand how movements will be broken up (push-ups: 3×10, 5×6, etc with quick breaks versus going to failure).
Scale movements as necessary in order to preserve the intended stimulus and keep the time within/near the given range.
Goal: 4-7 minutes
