Part 1: Press or Bench Press 3 (70%) – 3 (80%) – 3+ (90%)

Then…

Double Tabata

In 4 minutes, perform max reps of each of the following, using a 40 seconds work / 20 seconds rest interval:

Jumping Squats
Calorie Row or Bike
Jumping Lunges (alternating r/l)
Knees to Elbows

You can do the exercises in any order as long as you do 4 minutes of each.

Your score per exercise is the lowest reps in a 4 minute cycle.

Your total score is the sum of the lowest reps.

Example:

0-:40 — 14 cals
:40-1:00 — rest
1:00-1:40 — 13 cals
1:40-2:00 — rest
2:00-2:40 — 13 cals
2:40-3:00 — rest
3:00-3:40 — 10 cals
3:40-4:00 — rest

Ben’s score for the cals is 10, and at 4:00 on the clock he proceeds into:

4:00-4:40 — 22 knees to elbows
4:40-5:00 — rest
5:00-5:40 — 20 knees to elbows
5:40-6:00 — rest
6:00-6:40 — 21 knees to elbows
6:40-7:00 — rest
7:00-7:40 — 19 knees to elbows
7:40-8:00 rest

Ben’s score for the knees to elbows is 19.

Ben does the same thing with jumping lunges from 8:00-12:00, with his lowest score being 10. He then finishes with jumping squats from 12:00-16:00, with his lowest score being 11.

Ben’s total score is 50 (10+19+10+11). Write this score on the board.

Exercises can be done in any order. For the jumping lunges, you must lunge with each leg for one point.

Barbell Fundamentals Class

On Saturday November 3, beginning at 930am, Coach Fish will be conducting a Barbell Fundamentals class. This is for anyone who wants some additional practice/instruction on the Olympic lifts (clean/jerk and snatch). Coach Fish will help newer members become more proficient with the movements and assist more experienced members with form and technique corrections. We will also work on barbell cycling and efficiency tips.

This class is free for all members. If you plan on attending, please write your name on the signup list on the whiteboard in the office. If there’s good turnout, this is something we hope to do a couple of times a month.

This is a great opportunity to get better at one of the more challenging aspects of our program. Don’t miss it!
