Thursday 4/16/15

Yoga this Sunday at 4 pm!

Testing dates to be announced within the next 24 hours.

Get your regional tickets while they’re hot. The whole gym is going it seems. Condolences to those of you who were not selected as volunteers. You’ll have to just go hangout with your friends (and me) in the stands and cheer and have a beer and a good time. My heart is breaking for you. 

From back in the day…because Rob Orlando.

Good Morning

The barbell complex should be performed with the same load for all 5 rounds. If you did it last Friday, base your working weight off of that (either add 5-10# or stay at the same weight if you need to). Otherwise, use your notebook and the warmup to gauge an appropriate weight. This rep scheme is extremely challenging. Each round is one unbroken set. If you can’t finish all 40 reps, your score is 0 for that round. There are to be NO broken sets–once you put the bar down, it is your partner’s turn. If you change the weight on the bar between rounds, your load score is 0. Post total completed rounds and the load on the whiteboard (e.g. 5/135).
