Reminder that the gym is closed this weekend. If you want a workout, come to the gym at 10am on Saturday and help lift over 10,000 pounds of equipment.
Paleo Challengers – get your benchmarks done this week!
Also, there’s still some spots left for the Body Comp tests this weekend (which will be held at the new gym).
Find a 3RM Split Jerk
Find a 3RM Power Clean
On these strength days, it’s still important to make modest jumps in weight – no more than 5-10 pounds from the last time you did them. By doing so, you’re letting your body adapt to the new demands you’re placing upon it. Making 20-40 pound jumps (newbies, I’m looking at you), should never be attempted. Keep an accurate record of each strength in your books and follow the progressions we tell you. It’s for your development and safety.
Quick little video on the Split Jerk. Take note that the failed lifts still counted as attempts. They didn’t pretend it didn’t happen. A failed lift takes as much energy as a successful lift, so put it in your journal with an ‘F’ beside it.
