BACK SQUAT / THREE-POINT DUMBBELL ROW SUPERSET*
A1) Back Squat:
4 x 5-8
A2) Three-Point Dumbbell Row:
4 x 5-8
Use a heavy load for the rep range that allows you to move with perfect form. Keep rest to a minimum, 30-60 seconds between movements.
*Warm up and then perform a set of Back Squat, followed by a set of Dumbbell Rows, heavier than last week. Repeat for 4 work sets of each, resting 30 seconds to a minute between movements.

Exposure 4 of 8
30 Seconds Max Deadlifts 225/155
30 Seconds Max Handstand Push-Ups
1 Minute Rest
Set a sustainable pace for both movements and try to stay within a rep or two on each round.
Scaling the Deadlift: The Deadlift today is Rx’d at “Diane” weight, and is intended to be a medium load at which 10+ reps can be done unbroken. That said, you can choose to use it as strength training if it’s heavy for you, as long as you can move well.
Scaling the Handstand Push-Up: Using up to 2 AbMats to reduce ROM is OK if you can kick up and perform a few reps. You may also choose to work full ROM strength by performing Push-Ups or heavy Dumbbell Push Presses.

Exercise Demo Library Now Live!
So here’s a cool new site feature: we’ve built an exercise demo library for all you fitness maniacs, which is accessible under Member Resources (to the right on a desktop computer or at the bottom if you’re on a mobile browser). This video library lists the primary exercises used in CFSBK’s CrossFit group classes. Click on the links to see a brief demo video with points of performance for each movement.
We’ve organized them into three categories (Bodyweight Exercises, Barbell Exercises, and General Conditioning Exercises), each with sub-categories organizing movements from basic to more advanced variations. If you’re new to CrossFit, it can be especially helpful to review the exercises we’ll be using in class each day before getting coached on them in class. And even veteran CrossFitters can use a refresher now and then. As always, if you have questions, don’t be afraid to ask a coach!
