Complete as many rounds as possible 20 minutes of:
75 pound (M)/55(F) Thruster, 5 reps
75/55 pund Hang Powercleans, 7 reps
75/55 pound Sumo Deadlift High-pull, 10 reps
Don’t forget: CORE-to-EXTREMITY. Don’t pull with your arms on the Power Cleans or SDHP until your hips are FULLY extended and your shoulders have shrugged. This will get harder as you get fatigued, but this is when it is ESSENTIAL to use your hips to generate the power. Don’t worry about the numer of rounds you complete. FOCUS ON FORM. Slow down and nail the form. These are the kind of workouts where you can reinforce muscle recruitement patterns that will pay huge dividends on future workouts (and in life).

It makes me so frustrated to read this because the answer to so many people’s struggles is just education. The problem is, the facts within the education aren’t “mainstream” as Dr E. puts it. Therefore, their viewed as wrong or dangerous. In reality, it’s usually the mainstream view that is under-tested, incorrect and/or dangerous. Neat facts about fetal pancreatic development in this article (don’t let that scare you away, it’s put very simply).
I’ll start posting short snippets of wisdom from “Good Calories, Bad Calories.” I’m just trying to whittle them down into digestible (no pun intended) bites.
Hope you’re enjoying the holidays. We’re digging the family time. We’ll post WODs daily from here on out. Remember, it’s only 5am classes starting on Tuesday. Normal Classes resume MOnday, January the 5th.
