I have an incredibly awesome amount of stuff for this post – things that I am absolutely blown away by – this is getting really fun.
There is so much to discuss that I’m actually going to post the WOD first, then the business below. Please take the time to peruse everything.
1) Take 15 minutes to work up to a heavy Snatch (any style).
Notes: Keep going up until form breaks or you miss twice because of load.
2a) 4X2 1 Hi-Hang Snatch (squat) + 1 Snatch (squat) @ 80% of above – rest 60 sec. (T&G reps, straps are acceptable)
2b) 4X10 Strict Weighted HSPU – rest 60 sec.
Notes: Standard is hands on 45# (that says FOURTY FIVE, not 25) plates with an ab-mat in the middle. Use whatever you can to weight yourself. A tight vest should be the best option. As far as scaling… Only do these with weight if you can do them on 25# plates UB without weight. If you cannot do the 10 strict you MAY NOT scale to kipping. You may scale to an ab-mat with no plates, or build a target for your head at any height, but DO NOT kip. These do not need to be UB.
Snatch Balances @ 135/95#
*Last week I suggested that we want to WIN EVERYTHING. Talayna must have been paying attention:
Talayna Fortunato – 1st Place – Clash of the Fittest
*I am proud to announce the addition of two new athletes to the Outlaw roster…
The first is the current 13th Fittest Woman on Earth, Elisabeth Akinwale. She is obviously a huge addition to the team, and we are ECSTATIC to see what we can do with an athlete of her considerable skill level (D1 gymnast), and strength (she just totaled high enough at the American Open to qualify for Nationals).
If you’re trying to figure out why you know her this may remind you:
Welcome, EA – we’re INCREDIBLY excited to see what happens.
Our second new athlete has not YET been to the Games, but you may have seen one or two of his videos. Kevin Simons finished 7th in the Northwest Regional, but may be more well known for this:
That performance bested Games champ, Rich Froning, by almost a full minute.
Needless to say, Kevin is a MONSTER…
*I’ll have more Outlaw Doctrine up tomorrow, and I’m continuing to add to and clean up what is already posted. There are a few new pages on here if you haven’t noticed.
-The FAQ page which will probably never be finished. This is a place to hopefully answer any questions before they even come up. I will also have a “Code” section on the FAQ page so you can reference what things like A2A (ass to ankles) mean. And no, I will never write Tempo Training in Poliquin code. IMO its too confusing, too hard to explain, and OPT does it, so that’s his thing.
-The Outlaw Doctrine page has been set up as a place to gather all the important concepts of the program’s philosophy so you guys can easily reference them. Nobody plagiarize them, ok? Unless you’re trying to impress a chick, then it’s cool.
-Finally, we’ve installed a Training Camps page to document dates, locations, pricing, and travel (hotels, etc) information for all of our upcoming Training Camps. I’m going to write about our vision for these on Wednesday. These will look different than anything you’ve probably seen before, and we are incredibly excited about where they can go.
