Why Crossfit? Why do we do so much Olympic lifting? (cleans, snatch) Here’s your answer:
“Neuroendocrine Adaptation” is a change in the body that affects you either neurologically or hormonally. Among the hormonal responses vital to athletic development are substantial increases in testosterone, insulin-like growth factor, and human growth hormone. Exercising with protocols known to elevate these hormones eerily mimics the hormonal changes sought in exogenous hormonal therapy (steroid use) with none of the deleterious effect. Exercise regimens that induce a high neuroendocrine response produce champions! Heavy load weight training, short rest between sets, high heart rates, high intensity training and short rest intervals are all associated with a high neuroendocrine response.
1. Standing Shoulder Press (90% of 1RM) 70% x 3, 80% x 3, 90% x 3
2. 5 Rounds of:
20 Unbroken Wall Balls- 20m/15w (no resting b/t reps, must complete all 20, or start over)
* Score is clean load and time.
