The Economics of Sleep Part 2 from Freakonomics Radio. Even if you give it 2 minutes, see that will be eye opening. Or closing. The no screen window – no technology between 9p and 7a – gave the tester 1 more hour of sleep on the back end.
We are on week 2 of 4 of our heavy single work. I wanted to clarify how we are going to go about the session. I explained it as a heavy single. What it really is – take 10 minutes to get warmed up to 75% of your 1RM, then you have 5 minutes of so to perform 3 heavy singles at that weight. If you can sneak a 4th rep in, do it.
No Benchmark this Tuesday – just a challenging WOD that is scalable to any level: 50 Hang Power Clean 155/100, 150 Doubleunders, 50 Chest to Bar Pullups.

1 Snatch, 3 Overhead Squat 135/95
A round constitutes 1 Snatch plus 3 Overhead Squats. You CAN receive your first Overhead Squat in the Squat Snatch position. This will reward athletes that are good at catching the barbell. Scale smartly – if you need to lower the weight to receive the bar in a squat, do it.
