Despite the fact that Jay-Z did not answer my email invitation to attend our camp in Brooklyn, the weekend was an absolute blast. Virtuosity is a gym I’ve always wanted to visit, and any place that has this sign over the door has a special place in my heart…
So many beautiful newborn cheetahs. Miss you already.
Just wanted to give a tip of the cap to Derek “The Bodyweight Ninja” Robinson for finishing 7th in the world on 13.1. Apparently having a 285# Split Snatch pays off every once in a while.
I’m predicting it’s D-Rob’s year. “King-Kong” for 13.2?
1) 7X1 3 First Pulls + 1 Hang Snatch – heaviest possible, rest 60 sec.
Notes: The sequence is 3 First Pulls, a 3 second pause at the knees, then a Snatch from the hang position (at the knees). Do not let the BB rest on any portion of the leg before the Hang Snatch.
1a) 3X10 Strict T2B- rest 60 sec.
1b) 3XME “Nose & Toes” Handstand Holds – rest 60 sec.
Notes: This is a chest-facing-wall handstand performed with ONLY the nose and toes of the athlete in contact with the wall. A common fault with this movement is placing the hands too far from the wall. Make sure they are no further than 5″ from the wall.
