THIS WEEK AT THE GYM: METCON.


Last week we finished our 8 week Olympic Strength Cycle, but before we take a full week off from heavy lifting, we’re going to strike while the irons hot and be getting after two heavy lifts: a Heavy 10-Rep thruster and a grippy barbell complex.

Next week we’ll also start to see 2 ab-finishers per week to help build that strong core needed for these heavy lifts, plus beach season is coming ;)

For the workouts - yall know the deal, we’re keeping the intensity high with some heavy barbells, gymnastics and plenty of cardio. For the WOW, don’t miss the workout that strikes fear in almost every athletes heart - 'D.T.' - Coming this Tuesday!

5 ROUNDS FOR TIME

12 Deadlifts (155/105)

9 Hang Power Cleans

6 Push Jerks

(Score is Time)

My favorite cardio with a barbell workout, DT - a true test of barbell capacity and endurance. A couple different strategies most athletes use to attack this workout, but managing grip fatigue should definitely be a priority! This biannual benchmark was last tested December 17th 2021, lets shave some time off!
