ROM Drills

Rollerblade, or new skill

CrossFit is dependent on you being technical sound in your sport. Today work on your skills in a sport you need practice on. If you haven't set up rope practice and you will be doing ropes, you need to get this set up for next week. You'll need to tackle that once every 2 weeks starting next week.

I'll be scheduling that for you.

I'll help you get your body ready, but you have to get your skills ready!

Warm up and once your feel good about the skills tackle this:


Tabata workout out

Sprint as hard as you can for 20 seconds

Rest for 10 seconds

Repeat 7 more times for a total of 8 sets.

So what you have is a total of 4 minutes workout time.


Finish out the day on your blades just playing. This is a great one for the family to do with you.
