Week 2 Recap

Monday March 5, 2012

A. Front Squat 


B. 15 Minute AMRAP:

8 Front Squats (95/65)

10 Pullups

20 Double Unders

Performance(s) of the week: Rob Buckley reached the #165 bar with roughly 2.5 minutes left in the AMRAP. He was exhausted and his technique was fatigued. He did everything he could, but the bar just wasn't going up for him. This was Saturday. He then showed up on Sunday, determined to lift the #165 just once. He finished the #135 bar at a gym fastest 3 minutes to go. On his very first attempt, he cleared #165 for a good lift. He then did it again, and again, and again for a total of 64 reps. Rob had the motivation to come back into the gyn after a frustrating effort, to prove to himself that it could be done.
