What’s a typical CFBB session look like?
Yesterday we did some Turkish get ups - these teach multiple valuable pressing lessons: vertical forearm, stable shoulder, tight grip, using your body as one piece, etc, etc… These lessons can be directly applied to the bench press, our primary objective for the day…
Again, nothing too mental here…
While yesterday’s warm up was more about freeing up your joints for better movement, today is more about getting a good bench press out of you…
The bottoms up KB press forces you to grip hard and engage your shoulder stabilizers. The strict T2B / KR is to prep your lats and mid section / core. The crab walk is to improve shoulder extension and warm up the rear delts.
That was a long winded way of saying that if you’re going to push and pull vertically, you need to push and pull horizontally if you want to be fit, strong and healthy.
Plus benching is fun…
- Excellent upper body builder
- Bent arm press [Whereas TGU is a straight arm press]
- Necessary for CrossFitters shoulder health
