Everything working

by carney on December 28, 2012


Every part of your anatomy is involved and engaged in practically every movement of our program. There are no slack parts, ever. Sure, when looking for a new 1 rep max of a movement like the shoulder press, dip, or pull-up we don’t allow any wiggle in the rest of your structure, but when getting work done in the shortest time possible is of paramount importance to a high score, or your survival, you want everything working.

Workout of the Day
Clean & jerk, max for the day *

Complete as many rounds as possible in 7 minutes:
5 hang power cleans, 50 kg
7 front squats, 50 kg
9 burpees

* The “max for the day” effort is approached differently then some of our other heavy workouts (e.g. 1-1-1-1-1-1-1 rep, 1×5, 1RM) in that position and speed are emphasized over load. If a student misses a lift, then they will immediately reduce the load by 5%-10%, and then continue in their effort to incrementally increase the load each lift. Attention and focus on each lift are heightened as the recorded weights rise and fall in a wave-like pattern. And just so we’re not misunderstood – POSITION, SPEED, and LOAD always matter in training. The variations in emphasis are generated by the rules of scoring.
