C.) Accessory Work
This is something I would like you to do today AT SOME POINT. In the spirit of 9/11, I would like you ALL to do 9 minutes and 11 seconds of one movement of your choice.
Burpees are the easiest for everyone to do anywhere at anytime, Step Ups in a weighted vest is fitting as well. But some of you advanced athletes might want to do something like muscle ups for 9min. and 11sec. Whatever you want, but it must be 1 movement for the entire duration. Tag us on IG at: @crossfitpacificbeach and we would love to repost and help spread positive energy on this day.
P.S. Make a friend do it with you! In the gym, in your apartment, on the beach, ANYWHERE! #merica
Easy Assault Bike 2 min then move through these stretches spending 20-30 sec on each one.
Upper Body Hypertrophy
No necessary specific metric-tracking for hypertrophy day
On “Hypertrophy” days this week (for both upper and lower body) we will be implementing a protocol I am calling the “20-15-10+” Method, and here’s how it works:
-First set of 20 is super light. Slow tempo of movement, pause at contraction of every rep
Next set of 15 reps is slightly heavier. Still controlled movement and short pause at contraction
Final set is heavier to FAILURE (goal: 10+ reps). Faster reps, just getting work done (no squeezing etc…)
A. Alternate Movements, Resting 1-2 min between sets of each
Incline DB Bench
DB Seal Rows (incline)
B. Alternate Movements, Resting 1-2 min between sets of each
Seated DB Overhead Press
Strict Pull-ups (see note below)
***Note that EVERYONE should use assistance for the 20 and 15-rep set. There is nobody that can do 20 Pull-ups unbroken at 30X2 tempo… so save the “unassisted” set for the 10+ if you are capable. For the “assistance” you should perform either:
C. Alternate Movements, Resting 1-2 min between sets of each
DB PJR Pullovers
DB Lateral Raises
D. Alternate Movements, Resting 1-2 min between sets of each
Standing DB Hammer Curls (both arms simultaneously)
Decline EZ or Barbell Tricep Extensions
