Tuesday, June 19th

Conditioning: As Many Rounds as Possible in 18 minutes. (But not as fast as possible, just keep moving.)

3 Unbroken Power Snatch
3 Tire Flips
200m Run

Wednesday, June 20th


3×10 Strict Press (heavy as possible)

Workout: For Time

200 Double Under (300 singles)
100 Push Press (75/55)
50 Toes to Bar (1:1 knee tucks)

*Just because you see that 75/55 as RX…know that you will need to do massive sets.  5-10 reps for the first few sets probably isn’t enough…keep that in mind. That being said keep in under control…these should be smooth and fluid, not like a fish trying to get back in the river. 

And whatever you do…do not drop the bar from overhead.

Cashout: Pumptown Express - Tabata Floor Press with KettleBells’s

8 Rounds of…
20 seconds floor press 24lb KettleBells’s
10 Second hold at support with arms extended

No dropping the bells and at least 8 reps each set.  Alternate doing this with a partner (you do the 4 minutes then your partner) so you can do it with KettleBells if possible.  And as he says in the video “If you do this right, you should be crying at the end.”
