CrossFit Movements PART 2: Movements with weights
Continuing our journey of learning the CrossFit movements!
Deadlift: Barbell is lifted from the ground until the athlete reaches an upright standing position.
Clean: Barbell is (or dumbbells are) lifted from the ground to a “rack position” in front of the athlete’s neck. Athlete ends in a standing position. In a squat clean the athlete receives the bar in a squatting position and stands to finish the lift. In a power clean, the athlete receives the bar in a partial squat.
Kettlebell swing: A kettlebell is swung from between the legs to overhead.
Press: Barbell is moved from the “rack position” to the overhead position. In a strict press, also called a shoulder press or military press, the lower body remains stationary. In a push press, the bar is “jumped” off the body using a “dip and drive” motion. A push jerk is like a push press, but with a re-bend of the knees to allow the athlete to drop under the bar and receive it with straight arms. A split jerk is like a push jerk, but one leg goes forward and the other backward when the athlete drops under the bar.
Snatch: Barbell is raised from the floor to the overhead position in one motion. In a squat snatch the athlete receives the bar in a squatting position and stands to finish the lift. In a power snatch, the athlete receives the bar in a partial squat.
Squat: Barbell is supported on upper back (back squat), in the rack position (front squat), or in the overhead position (overhead squat). From a standing position with a wider-than-shoulder-width stance, the athlete bends the knees until the hips are below the knees, and then stands, keeping the heels on the floor.
Sumo deadlift high pull: With a wide stance, a barbell or kettlebell is lifted from the ground to a position just under the chin.
Thruster: A combination of a front squat and a push press: starting with the barbell in the rack position, the athlete squats (hips below knees) and then stands, driving the barbell overhead.
Tire flip: A large tire, lying on its side, is flipped over by lifting one edge.
Wallball: Holding a medicine ball below the chin while facing a wall at arms length, the athlete squats (hips below knees) and stands, throwing the medicine ball in order to make contact with an overhead target on the wall
