Choose the option below that you need the most. As a guide, we recommend focusing on the strict work for at least a few weeks if you can’t yet consistently perform sets of 5-10 strict, unassisted reps.
8-10 sets of 2-6 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups (assisted as needed) or VERY challenging Ring Rows
Perform 1-2 sets of 5-10 Strict Pull-Ups first to ensure your shoulders are properly warmed up,then practice Kipping or Butterfly Pull-Ups for 15 minutes. Come off the bar if/when your movement pattern falls apart. Perfect practice makes perfect!

Exposure 4 of 6
30 Minutes for Quality:
30-60 Second Double Dumbbell/Kettlebell Overhead Carry
10 Alternating Arm Bicep Curls (5e)
Rotate through the movements at a low intensity/aerobic pace. If you wear a heart rate monitoring device, then aim to say below about 150 bpm. Otherwise, you should be able to breathe through your nose the entire time and/or hold a conversational pace. Really challenge yourself to stay in this zone on the jogs, even slowing to a fast walk as needed. Go as heavy as you can with good form on the curls (no swaying/cheating) and carries.

Introducing CFSBK’s Adaptive Athlete Program
Our belief is that CrossFit should be accessible to everybody, including those who have physical disabilities. Our Adaptive Athlete program focuses on introducing individuals with permanent physical impairments to the foundation of functional movement. The class is open to all individuals with limitations due to neurological motor/sensory impairments, spinal cord injuries, cerebral vascular accident impairments (stroke), traumatic brain injuries, post-traumatic stress syndrome, amputations, and/or congenital disabilities.
Our mission is to break down barriers and build opportunities through the exploration of movement. Whether your goal is to improve quality of life through activities of daily living or pursue the sport of CrossFit in a more competitive environment, we are here to provide a supportive community that empowers you to learn.
