Athletes will have about 13 minutes to build to a heavy Macho Man Complex. These 3 movements are designed to be completed unbroken. Let’s try not to blend these movements together into Squat Cleans and Thrusters. Stand all the way up following the Power Clean before starting the Front Squat. Stand all the way up from the the Front Squat before starting the dip of the Push Jerk.

This workout is all about quality rope climbs. Moving well on the rope climbs makes them much easier, especially when we’re likely to climb into double digits reps. If you’re confident with your rope climbs under fatigue, getting your best score comes down to moving quickly through the DB snatches and lunges. If you know the higher skilled rope climbs are going to be a challenge, slow down your pace on the other two movements. Moving at a smooth pace through the walking lunges and the slamballs will allow for more efficient rope climbs

Long Haul

19th February 2020|

After dipping with the heels down, we want to drive aggressively through the heels to straighten the legs. Squeezing the legs straight is what creates power and elevates the bar overhead. Focusing on the squeeze rather than the press allows the stronger lower body muscles do most of the work. The push press also calls for no re-bend of the legs, so continuously squeezing the legs prevents athletes from Push Jerking the weight.

20 Push Presses (50/35)

The Undertaker

17th February 2020|

Deadlifts are a big focus today, as they’re included in both parts. We’ll start the day by building to a heavy set of 5 deadlifts. For conditioning, our 13-minute workout begins with a buy-in effort on the bike. The buy-in happens only once during the workout. We expect the bike to take between 3:30-5:00, leaving roughly 8:00-10:00 for the scored portion. The scored portion of the workout is the total rounds and reps of deadlift, sit-up, and double under triplet. Good Times!
