CrossFit Barbell Chest Workouts

As mentioned before, a strong chest will help you with all pulling and pushing movements. The sumo deadlift high pull is total body compound exercise and stresses a great deal of muscle mass per repetition. Inverted rows and pull ups both develop a solid chest and are useful to attain upper body strength.

Pick your poison – preferably a move you’re not comfortable with or something that will challenge you – and give this WOD a try!
