Here we go again!


Here we go again!

We just spent the last 12 weeks, physician and a Cube session before that, doing a ton of barbell strength work.  We’ll spend the next few weeks working on some gymnastic skills, getting better at gymnastic pulling and pressing.

Last year, we used a system I called “Milo.”  It was a simple barbell complex done on the minute.  This time, Milo will be a little more CrossFit-y with the barbell.  It will be 3 Hang Squat Clean into 2 Push Press.  On Monday, get comfortable with this.  Work this complex to a heavy set.  Next week, you should pick a smart weight, as we will perform this complex OTM for 10.  The next week, I recommend a 5 pound jump.

Later in the week we will do a Strict Pull Up/Dip OTM that we have done before and a Handstand OTM that we have done before.

Finally, we will add a Pressing session after some workouts.  This will alternate weeks – one week will be shoulder press, the next will be bench.


Workout of the Day


3 Hang Squat Clean into 2 Push Press

Take 20 minutes to build to a heavy set of this complex.  If you want to “thruster” out of the bottom of the 3rd HSC into your first PP, go for it.
