Workout: The Explosive Power Ladder Workout

Trainer: Nate Helming, trainer at San Francisco CrossFit, endurance coach

Benefit: You’ll build the strength, power, and endurance you need to become a better runner and athlete.

It’s a ladder workout, so the density (or number of reps) increases with each round. But don’t worry, it’ll be over in 6 minutes.

Directions: Perform one rep of each exercise in the order shown. That’s 1 round.

Add one rep each round. So for round 2, you’ll do 2 reps of each exercise, and for round 3, you’ll do 3 reps, and so on.

Do as many rounds as you can in 6 minutes.

2. Rolling pistol with hop, left leg (make it easier by using both legs on the standing phase of the exercise)
