Beginner Wall Ball Workouts For Crossfit
You haven’t been training Crossfit that along. Your endurance strength isn’t where it needs to be.
And your coach has programmed in wall balls. Oh No.
Why does the idea of wall ball workouts send shivers down the spine of crossfit beginners?
Simply put, you just have not trained enough with the wall ball and lack two key strength areas.
Strength endurance and aerobic strength. Both of which are heavily tested during wall ball training.
Think about every rep on the wall ball. You squat deep then have to explode up and shoot the ball up high. Without either position being successful, you’re going to get a no rep. This means that you need to have the ability to both squat deep and the strength to shoot the ball high enough.
You just aren’t going to have this as a crossfit newbie. Your system isn’t conditioned enough. The main objective should then be to develop both the deep squat endurance strength AND the explosive upper body strength. You can’t just lift a barbell overhead, you have to be able to explode the load fast and quickly.
