Ways to Modify the Squat

Monday saw two modifications of the squat.  For our strength training, we did heavy thrusters.  A thruster is a front squat into a push press.  Then for the WOD, we did overhead squats.  The overhead squat is brutally effective at exposing weaknesses in shoulder flexibility and midline stability.  Don’t believe me?  Try it.

Tired of your typical workout routine?  Then look no further because CrossFit has myriad movements and its constant variety is one of the main reasons why it’s simply the best exercise program.

Sash was all about getting the work done.  He posted the fastest time too!
