>The majority of videos run on this site feature Games athletes or human King-Kongs hurling metric shit-tons of weight overhead. I would love to feature more videos from non-Gamers, who are of less than King-Kong size, and have shown vast improvement in a short period of time. There would only be a few requirements: I’d need to have seen their progress in person for a little over a year – they’d have to write a clever blog about their experience – ideally they’d be a coach at my gym – finally, no matter what, their name would have to be Adam.

Only if…

Adam Garcia – 200# Snatch (115# improvement in 12 months):

>This video does not feature one of our athletes. It does however feature the guy I think is the toughest lifter in America, James Tatum (he’s a 77kg), doing one of the toughest complexes I’ve ever seen. Coach Pendlay mentions it in the video, but this was done with Tatum’s meet PR. Pure Clint Eastwood.

James Tatum – 160kg (352#) Clean/FS/Jerk Complex:

  1. I love this morning posting!
    Seems kinda obvious but im Guessing the KB snatch is 24/16kg also?

  2. fml I finally do something to make the blog and I’m too hungover to celebrate.

    is the 1 mile run a floating divider between the RFT or is it part of the first set? Meaning do we run 1 mile or 3 tomorrow?

    • Since there is a space between the 3 movements and the 1 mile run….. it means run a mile at the end of each round. He just spaced it out to emphasise the mile

      • Only one mile boys. Anytime you see “for time” followed by multiple rounds, a divider, then more rounds, it’s simply in order.

        • I was just seeing who would be posting times with 3 miles in it.. thats why I threw the “space” comment out there caues if they arent grouped together then it is broken into a different segment.

  3. Im new to the Outlaw way, started last week, I was wondering when you guys post Snatch, Clean and such do you always mean squat snatch/clean (yes its a noob question) or is it a option? or do we only perform power snatch/clean when posted?

    • Yessir. All BB movements will be noted with a distinction if they are Power, Hang, etc. However, they will never be noted “Squat”. The squat is implied.

  4. can you go back to the old website template rudy this shit is wack! and dont make fun of the use of the word it just simpily isnt user friendly from iphone is fine but a PC is just horrible

    • Ariel, I’ve gotta disagree. We needed the extra column (on the right) to handle the amount of widgets we’ve accumulated. And… I know everyone hates the white, but if you’re on a slow connection it loads significantly faster.

      This is just a measure to make the site easier to navigate until the new one is done. Yes, the new one will be done sometime (hopefully soon).

    • honestly don’t know why people don’t like the new look, I think it’s better.

  5. BBG:
    1) 145#

    PR attempts: 165f, 165f, 165! 20# PR

    215# C/J, 10# PR

    felt awesome, left the gym. boom!

  8. *No Jerk Boxes or enough weights to stack, so went Vertical High Hang
    1. VHH Snatch – 185-205-215 (failed 2nd rep)-225-235-245-255FF
    I then was angry at myself and at the bar and proceeded to stack 260 on which is 5# over my full snatch PR… missed this for 3 sets FF-FF-FF and then decided to go for one more, because everyone knows that you have to PR everyday. and I hit 260# for a PR out of the VHH.
    2. VHH Clean x2 + 1 PJ – (225-245-260-275-290CCFJ x 3) I need some serious help in the jerk before my snatch overtakes my C&J.

    3. Conditioning to be posted after completion.

  12. BBG
    165 for 5 sets. Then 175 for a few.
    Being Cold and bar muscle ups is not a good mix

  13. Snatch 85-105-105-115-115-115-115
    Cleans 115-115-135
    Training group wanted to keep it short today. Guess they’re feeling a little beat up.

    Conditioning 21:53
    Mile was 8:10

  14. BBG

    My weakness is off the floor so I decided to start there rather than the boxes or hang. I ended up working up heavy and nearly PR’d on the snatch

    Snatch – 265, 3 misses at 285
    C&J – 295


    21:35 Rx’d. Tired.

  15. Went from the floor today.

    Snatch – missed 285 3 times.
    C & J – 295


    21:35 Rx’d.

  16. Snatch:


    Clean and jerk:

    185/185/185/205/205/225 missed 1st rep/225 missed 2nd rep


  17. BBG
    Snatch from high hang

    C & J from high hang

    3 bar muscle ups instead of 5 and then 2 instead of 3 (got them for the first time about 2 weeks ago so not too upset about the scaling)
    24:00 even

  18. BBG
    1) 155×6, 165
    2) 225 across

    * I did my bar muscle ups on the rogue infinity rig with a double bar. I was sure to come over the bar high enough not to slam my face into the second bar. Worked out way better than I thought.

  19. Conditioning: 21:38

    Did 2 position cleans: 2x@75%; 2x@80%

    Can’t wait to tackle 13.3 tomorrow.
