5×5 Press (across)

If you like this warmup pattern, stick with it. 5, 3, 3, 2 increasing weight.



JLascek: I just wanted to throw in the fact that you cannot “pull yourself down” in any kind of squat unless you are moving faster than gravity will allow, and this is never the case in the presence of a significant load.

TPrewittMD: Actually, you can’t “pull yourself down” unless your feet are literally fixed to the floor. Simply dropping the bar to the floor is faster than any squat and is the effect of gravity.

Tuesday: I wonder why CrossFitters haven’t used this fact to improve their Fran time by fixing themselves to the floor.

Rip: Because it slows down the pullups, you fool.
