WHITEBOARD – 28 January 2013


Build up to a heavy single in the following barbell complex:

A1. 2 Snatch Pulls + 1 Hang Snatch

Deload to 80% and hit the following for 3 sets:

A2. 1 Snatch Pull + 2 Hang Snatches


3 Rounds:

KB Swings (100/70lbs)

Weighted Chin-up (Approximately 1/5 of 1 rep max load)


3 Minutes of Max Burpees

Notes:  We learn at an early age how to jump properly.  The pic of the day is my little girl mid air after striking a jump in gymnastics.  Notice the open hip without a break in the lumbar or thoracic.  She has a neutral head position and shoulder girdle.  There is a rebend of the knees because she is on her decent.  But, what I want you to realize is that the extension found in olympic lifting, burpees, jump-ropes, and jumping are mirrors of each other.  Want to be athlete?  Learn to master your movement.

    What can I do with a broken toe?

    • In general? Anything not standing really; hanging pulls & pushes, ab movements/gymnastic progressions, seated and floor presses, back extensions, and quad extensions (VMO intensive).

  • 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...
