CrossFit Endurance: The Monster Moves
Mix and match three to four of the following eight crossfit exercises once a week to boost your strength and endurance
Works: Your Glutes, hamstrings, hips, quads, back
Purpose: The move strengthens your posterior chain – the stride-driving muscles in your hamstrings and glutes
How: Stand with your feet under a barbell, shins almost touching the bar, feet under your hips.
Keeping your back straight and chest up, sit back into your hips and grip the bar.
Take a deep breath in and hold it as you push your hips forward, keep your arms straight and lift the bar so it travels a vertical path along your body. Do one set of five to 10 reps.
Build on it: Increase the weight over time until you reach the maximum you can lift two or three times for one set. Progress to three sets, aiming for five reps, then three reps, then one rep.
