2013-open-logo-blue-11Warm-up Drills
I. Row 2:00
II. 2-3 rounds of
5 x Pull-ups
7 x Push-ups
10 x Walking Lunges

“Workout 16.1”
Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes of:
25-ft. Overhead Walking Lunge
8 x Burpees
25-ft. Overhead Walking Lunge
8 Chest-to-bar Pull-ups

Men lunge – 95 lb.
Women lunge – 65 lb.

Notes: Prior to starting this workout, each athlete will need to mark a starting point on the floor, measure out 25 feet and make another mark on the floor at the finishing point. Additionally, intermediate marks must be made at every 5-foot interval, each of which represents 1 rep of the lunge.

This workout begins with the barbell resting on the floor near the pull-up bar. At the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will pick up the barbell and lunge with it overhead for 25 feet. They will then perform 8 burpees, jumping over the barbell on each repetition, before picking the barbell back up and lunging back in the opposite direction. Once back at the pull-up bar, they will perform 8 chest-to-bar pull-ups, and then will head back to the barbell to begin the next round.

Your score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute time cap.

FullSizeRender“You don’t know what you’re going to see, what you’re going to hit, what you’re going to have to do; So you have to prepare for everything. This is the true way to build this… To build Batman.” –Dave Castro in Fittest On Earth 2015: Documentary

Working Sets
5 x 65%
5 x 70%
5 x 75%

Notes: An excerpt explaining the purpose of a De-load week; “The Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning explain the purpose of a deload week as an opportunity “to prepare the body for the increased demand of the next phase or period,” and to mitigate the risk of overtraining. As I already mentioned, the chief purpose of the deload week is to give your muscles and joints time to rebuild, heal and grow stronger. A properly planned and executed deload week allows your connective tissue to repair (since muscle recovers more quickly than your joints and ligaments) and restores testosterone and cortisol levels. Moreover, a deload week gives your mind the chance to take things easy for a while and get away from the intensity that consistently tough workouts can provide.
If done correctly, you should return from a deload week with a properly adapted, well-rested, stronger and more focused body—which equates to new PR’s and new levels of stimuli (i.e. more weight, frequency, etc.), making the process start all over again.”–BoxLifeMagazine article on Wendell 5-3-1 found HERE

IMG_6911“At the peak of tremendous and victorious effort,
while the blood is pounding in your head,
all suddenly comes quiet within you.
Everything seems clearer and whiter than ever before,
as if great spotlights had been turned on.
At that moment,
you have the conviction that you contain all the power in the world, that you are capable of everything, that you have wings.
There is no more precise moment in life than this,
the white moment, and you will work hard for years,
just to taste it again.”
–Yuri Vlason, Soviet Weightlifter
