**These will be done using a TEMPO of 31X0, explained below:

Barbell loaded on rack:

the ‘X’ stands for the ascending (concentric) phase of the lift – the amount of time it take you to get to the top of the lift. The ‘X’ here signifies that athletes should EXPLODE the weight up as quickly as possible.

The 0 refers to how long to pause at the top of the lift

Why?

Slow down…it might be your key to avoiding injury and getting stronger. First, tempo training improves quality of movement which, as Crossfit athletes, should be our first priority. Intensity comes only after one can consistently demonstrate the proper mechanics of a movement. Secondly, tempo training also reduces the risk of injury by helping to improve the quality of the movement. Third, proper tempo prescriptions can lead to vastly improved strength gains.
