WHITEBOARD – 07 March 2013



Clean Pull + Clean Pull from below knee w/2s pause
4 sets of 3 – Use 125% weight used on clean complex from https://beyultraining.com/2013/03/04/white-board-04-march-2013/


Bench Press
5 Sets of 5 – Build up to a heavy set and perform five sets there or 5 total sets within 90% of that max. Don’t go crazy, this is not a max day and it is the beginning of a long duration bench cycle.  Think 90% effort on this one. 


10 minute AMRAP
20 Push-ups
10 Burpees
20 KB Swings
10 Wallballs (20/14)

Notes: Again, a clean pull is not a deadlift.  We are working strengthing up the proper positioning for a clean.  I want you to sweep that bar back and transfer your weight to your heels as you drive the legs in.  Here is an example of a clean pull + clean pull from below knees.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zB-aCN7oT60.  Skip to 30s in. 

I want your pull to be a little more controlled and more forceful on driving the knees back while keeping a good back angle.  Think more about driving or PUSHING through the legs than actually pulling.  Also, the hang portion should have a 2 second pause at below knee to reinforce that position. 

Bench should NOT be hard.  Work through the sets fast.

  • John Donne – Meditation 17

    No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee...
