Note: Be sure to watch the tutorial video on the Weighted Box Step-up technique. This skill is a new technique CrossFit Amundson is adding to our repertoire of challenging gymnastic based skills. Much like the benefits of the Weighted Lunge (Coach Mike Burgener’s favorite skill for developing lower body strength!) the Weighted Box Step has the potential to develop extraordinary lower body strength and conditioning. For the AMRAP, rest up to three minutes between rounds. Prescribed barbell weight is up to 95lb. for men and 65lb. for women. Kettlebell weight is up to 53lb. for men and 35lb. for women.
