Deadlift, 1 rep

...a runners nightmare

Cognitive Fitness...Now there's an Idea!

"What was the unified theme of our last three day cycle? Well, our last cycle is a very adequate answer to folks who ask about "core" work in CF, who wonder if we do enough "abs". GHD sit-ups in "Mr. Joshua", L-Pullups, and then Overhead Lunges.

What? Wait. Overhead Lunges? Yup. Think about it. The Overhead Squat is one of the most powerful exercises to train mid-line stabilization, which is just another way to say train the core. An overhead lunge is actually somewhat more difficult since you must also work on lateral stabilization -- your base is much more narrow than the classic overhead squat. How hard would it be to do either an Overhead Squat or Lunge without fully engaging your abs?

The more you think about what we are doing here the more obvious the brilliance of the program becomes. Brutal and intense for sure, but also subtle and elegant.

When you read the WOD and do the WOD remember to engage your "brain muscle", too!
