Foundational Movements of CrossFit continued…
The Deadlift targets the gluteus maximus which is the biggest muscle in the body and of the three powerlifting movements. Nothing targets the butt as hard as the deadlift! Strong glutes transfer to better endurance, power, and pain prevention.
The Sumo Deadlift High Pull primarily strengthens the hamstrings, glutes, lower back and upper traps.
The Medicine-Ball Clean targets the muscles of the arms, shoulders, and even the abdominal muscles. It’s excellent for engaging the gluteus maximus, hamstrings, calves, lower back, upper traps, biceps and forearms. The medicine ball clean is an exercise that is extremely effective for building size and strength and it’s a very popular movement to add to any WOD.
