BLACKBOARD – 19 May 2014


A1. Hang Clean (2) + Clean (1) – Build to  Max
*Deload to 85% – 2 sets of 2 Hang Cleans + 1 Clean + 2 Front Squats


B1. 6 Rounds of: 
10 Alternating Dumbbell Presses (1/4 Strict Press 1 Rep Max)
1 Sled 50m Sled Push – (115/70lbs)
10 Pistols


C1. Hollow Rock Holds 4 sets of 12s or 24s hold (Skill dictates hold time)

*Explanation and break down of progressions:

Notes: Look familiar?  Same complex for A1 as last week except one clean from the floor.  For B, same as last week but 6 rounds instead of an AMRAP.  For C, exact same, but try to either up your time for the holds compared to last week, or lower the time and increase the progression.

Again, if you don’t have a full range pistol, work mobility for the workout, and elevate yourself on a box so you can challenge yourself and go deeper as you build confidence.

I think the Russians and Chinese know a thing or two about recovery. Both serve their national teams broth extensively.

    A1: up to 95#, deload at 81#
    did 100# but the rack on the hang clean was sloppy. 100# is my 1RM PR

    B1: 4 rounds only cause thanks to Carl Paoli I now know I need to rework my pistols
    45# sled; 20# DB

    C1: I’m hollow, but I don’t rock and I need more than Carl Paoli videos to help me.

    And for the record, Carl is the new KStar.

  • 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...
