Zercher? I barely know her!

Iron Grip CrossFit – CrossFit

The zercher squat is certainly one of the lesser known lifts. But it does have some value in its demand for a strong and stable midline, while allowing athletes to experience a front squat variation that is a bit more forgiving of a less upright posture.
Also, it’s just fun to try something new once in a while.
