Strength accessory movements are used to target specific muscle groups for strength development and hypertrophy. By training these muscle groups, athletes can achieve more balanced strength and stability. Improvement in these areas can also improve performance in compound movements used in CrossFit, by increasing strength in the areas that fatigue the quickest. Some of the exercises on this page are used throughout our programming in a variety of areas. For more information on how to apply these exercises in your training, check out our extra programming page.
