Pressing series

Monday, June 17th

Today’s lifting series is a great demonstration of the increased gains in strength and power that the Core to Extremity principle gives us access to. . ” Core to Extremity is the principle of applying force to muscle groups in proper sequence, from the center of the body to its extremities.  It initiates from the largest, strongest muscles and transfers to the smaller, weaker ones. This principle can be applied to nearly every CrossFit movement and with correct execution, you will notice greater gains in power output and efficiency.”- Mike Dill

The point here is to increase the weight as you go.
