CrossFit Ecstatic – CrossFit
Fun week so far in the final days of “Silverback”. Love seeing the team’s progress!
Retesting our Push Press from the start of the cycle.
Staying on the barbell for a heavy set of five deadlifts to follow, which will lead us into our conditioning for the day – intervals.
Calorie Bike or Row, light intensity.
After each set:
5 Inchworms (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDweumAbvfQ&width=640&height=480)

9 Superman Rocks (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bxu4D6VzZw0&width=640&height=480)
Push Press (Building to a 1-Rep Max Push Press)
Set #1 – 3 Reps @ 50% of estimated 1RM PP
Set #2 – 3 Reps @ 60% of estimated 1RM PP

Sets #7 and Beyond – 1 Repetition, climbing, until we reach out 1RM for the day.
Rest as needed between sets, but aim to keep it to 2:00 or less between.
Deadlift (5 Sets of 5 Deadlifts)
Aim is to build to a heavy set of five “touch and go” repetitions by the final set
Set #1 – 70% of 1RM Deadlift
Set #2 – 75% of 1RM Deadlift
Set #3 – 80% of 1RM Deadlift
Sets #4 and #5 – Build to a heavy set of five repetitions.
Floor It (Time)
Every 4:00 x 4 Rounds:
100′ Walking Lunge
15 Deadlifts (185/135)
15/12 Calorie Assault Bike
Each round is a 4:00 window. After completing the triplet (lunge + deadlift + bike), check the clock for your time. Any time remaining is rest inside that 4:00 window, where it then rolls directly into the next round.
Score is our slowest round of the four.
Aiming for higher power today.
Each round is intended to be “unbroken”, from the weight lunges to the deadlifts. At moderate loads, we can push our pace here, leaving what is left on the bike. We can expect these rounds to be near the ~2:30 mark for most athletes, leaving 1:30 between rounds. A great day to push out efforts on the bike, knowing the exponential accumulation of the calories when our intensity increases.
