Monday’s WOD 6-27-16

Group Warm Up
Bulgarian Split Squat (using DB’s)
4×8 each leg
*This is a unilateral (single leg) movement, while most weightlifting exercises in CrossFit are bilateral. If you were to always train bilateral movements you’d run the risk of developing compensation patterns in order to make up for the weaker leg (or arm), since no one has a symmetrical body. This in turn, can lead to muscle imbalances. The Bulgarian Split Squat is a great piece for building strength in the quads, glutes, and core without having to put stress on the lower back (I.e. Back squat), all while reducing muscular imbalances and asymmetries. Having the rear leg raised also allows for an active stretch through the hip flexor. If you are having trouble reaching depth or are extremely tight through their hip flexors place your rear leg on a lower box.
