Barf (acing burpees)
Burpees are just as simple as a functional movement gets, and we’ve all been practicing since we learned how to walk. You fall down, you figure out how to get back up. If we all continue to practice it, we’ll be able to do it long into our old age, and we won’t become this guy too soon.
Today’s workout is the epitome of CrossFit’s methodology of moving large loads over long distances quickly. The thruster is a full body barbell loaded movement, and the burpee is a quintessential movement basic put to work in a high-speed metabolic manner. Making it a bar-facing burpee puts a little extra oomph into it and demands a bit more focus and power output… exactly the sort of thing we like for its training benefit.
Whether or not you put the barf into barfacing burpees today, let’s get at it aggressively with this classic couplet that can get your heart racing quick and peg it to the redline throughout.
