A high, weighted Step-Up is challenging for even the most gifted athlete. Step-Ups are a great exercise on their own and also an excellent substitute for box jumps, lunges and even pistols. However, today I feel the need to tell you one of the reasons I love CrossFit. We did a workout today that I could have scaled and finished faster.

Use BW/75BW/50BW/25BW load options. Load should feel moderately heavy. For the third year in a row, box jump standards were going to evolve during the CrossFit Games Open. Through its largest official event, CrossFit responded to growing criticism of how one of the sport’s most fundamental, yet most vilified and injury-causing movements were performed.
WARM UP. 3x. Runway lunges. 3 EB Dead lifts. 3 EB Behind the neck strict press. 3 EB Back squats. WOD. 6x. 16 Box step ups 20 95/65lb (43/29kg). 100m OH Plate carry 20/15kg. 10 Dead ball over shoulder (Heavy). There are a few different variations of drills to practice this transition step. The key is to be fast and aggressive, utilizing the momentum created from powerful hips while keeping the rings close so that the athlete is able to catch himself securely in the bottom of the ring dip. Attach a band to the rings like you did in last week’s Step 2 to provide assistance. At any rate, a lengthy debate ensued at our box regarding the merits (and legitimacy) of step-ups. The purists among us were scandalized; step-ups may not be cheating, as per the rulebook, but they certainly feel like it. And yet, the press out method is one we accept regularly in CrossFit. I do wonder if it occurred to Dave Castro that his WOD would turn into an 80’s aerobics class.
