CrossFit Boro – CrossFit
Today we are practicing the Split Jerk! While not a commonly trained movement, it is unmatched in its ability to cultivate your coordination, balance, strength, and agility in the shoulder to overhead exercises.
The metcon involves two gymnastics movements. Yep! Box Jumps and Sit-Ups are considered gymnastics in CrossFit because they are bodyweight movements. You should be wrapping up this work in 1:30-2:00, leaving you with lots of rest time. If you find that’s not the case, re-evaluate your box height or GHD sit-up range of motion!
