As Fast As You Can

CFD is a sponsor of the 2012 Running of the Bulls 8K on Saturday, June 2nd!

We are in charge of the aid station at Mile 2 (just down the street from the gym at Geer and Washington) and need 8-10 volunteers to give out water and Gatorade to the runners.  Can you help?  Email dave@crossfitdurham.com for details

Post Bench Press Loads and Workout Rounds to Comments
For the strength segment, the goal is to move the weight as quickly as possible for your three reps across all 9 sets, particularly on the way up.  Rep speed should be roughly 1 second down and 1 second up.  If you cannot perform all of your reps at this speed then you need to use a lighter load…regardless of whether you’re at 50% or not.  Make sure you watch the video below.

For the conditioning workout, use a power clean load around 80% 1RM or even a little more.  Take a big deep breath before each sprint and then run as hard as you can!  There is no rest between rounds.

There is NO ENDURANCE WORKOUT today!

OPEN GYM today from 10am-12pm in the green room!
