The weightlifting training from above and the past few weeks, I wrote for the phase these athletes were was not though out very well. This is coming from both a training and time efficiency, for a CrossFit class perspective.
The tough part about writing the strength portion of the workout in CrossFit classes is you have very minimal time to warm up and the perform anything with intensity, especially if your members are expecting a conditioning piece after it.
For me to think it was possible for people to hit 8 C&J@90%, then 6 clean pulls@120% in 14 minutes was insane.
A much better plan would have been:
-10 min to build to a heavy double C&J, then perform 3 drop sets 5-10 lower than heavy double
— after class 4x2 clean pull@120% (if have time)
The above option ensures at least 1 part of training is getting hit with intensity, more isn’t always better
