The 8am crew is showing James their excitement as he get’s his Strict Press!


“Road Rash”
5 Rounds (On the 5:00):
5 Dumbbell Hang Clean and Jerk (Left Arm)
5 Dumbbell Hang Clean and Jerk (Right Arm)
10 Alternating Dumbbell Power Snatches
10 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
15/10 Calorie Assault Bike

We’ll record the scores for all 5 rounds today to give ourselves a good idea of pacing. It is more impressive to stay consistent with these rounds than it is to start fast and fall off. The athlete whose scores didn’t fluctuate much likely squeezed more fitness out of the workout than the athlete who crashed and burned. However, being all over the place with round times is a great learning opportunity. Don’t review the results as good or bad, just view them as what they are. Because that happened, we can use the information to make improvements the next time a workout like this comes up. Focus on these as areas where we can make really good progress, not areas where we are flawed.
