Ralston Creek CrossFit – CrossFit

Spoiler alert – today’s WOD is designed to be much more mentally challenging than physically demanding. Yes, everything is from the floor. Yes, you are going to switch legs on EVERY split jerk. Yes, you are going to swap your weights on EVERY transition. And yes, it’s going to start to piss you off. Pick weights on the Jerk that allow you to have no more than 1 break, but just remember you have to clean it every time, so lighter and unbroken might be better. The DLs should strive to be unbroken every round. Use the transitions to catch your breath, and try to develop a system for fast loading/deloading of the bar. Lastly, if you are working on your strict pull ups, or gaining pull up volume, make sure you do the cooldown work!
