BLACKBOARD – 05 May 2014


A1. Back Squat – 1 Rep x 98% – If good go for new PR.  If bad hit 3 sets of 2 at 92%


B1. 8 Minute AMRAP: 
3 Muscle Snatches (50% max snatch)
6 Pistols (*6 each side)
9 Glute-Ham Sit-ups

C1. Escalating Ladder: On the minute:
Push-ups: 4-8-12-16-20-Etc.

Notes: Work up to 1 rep at 98% if you have it in you.  If good then build up.  Involvement in the last cycle has been sporadic so I wouldn’t expect many PRs at the moment.

This week ends the long cycle of strength focus we have been on. We will switch it up our primary focus to power the next 8-12 weeks, then on to speed-strength.

Sleds, barbell complexes, and jumps will be heavily involved.

  • 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...
