Today’s workout at first glance might make you ask “what’s the big deal?” We love it when you think that! Today we see a short AMRAP with a push bodyweight movement and a pull bodyweight movement. It’s a beautifully balanced combination. What at first look you might miss is the impact this is going to have on your midline. Yes you’ll be pushing and pulling, but both of these movements require you to keep your midline engaged and tight. This is going to catch up to you quickly. When it does, you have one of 2 choices. One, you can get all mashed potatoes with a saggy midline and accumulate some questionable reps. Or two – you can rest, recover, and get less rounds/reps but walk away with the joy that your reps looked picture perfect, your form was true, and you fought hard and earned every round on the board. Which one will you choose? (hint: it should be #2!). See you in there!!!
Naz putting in the T2B work!
Another Testing Day!
This is the last day of this training cycle and you’ll close out it with a shot at another PR this week. We’re pulling for you to do it! We’ve allocated the entire hour to get you a good warm-up and ample opportunity to work up in weight. We’ll give you some ideas on how to work up to that new PR based on percentages for each set as well as our thoughts on rest. We’re going to set you up for success but you’ll have to do all the hard work!
Next week we’ll share with you some details on the next wave of programming. It will take us right up to the open and we’ll fine tune some of the things we think will show up during the 5 weeks. In the meantime, come in today and get that PR front squat!!
