No video today, as we are getting things ready for a big announcement (which I guess I have to announce now).
Due to popular demand, we are adding a second Melbourne date of the Para Bellum Series. February 7th-9th will be the dates for the new camp (it’s basically a prequel), and the registration links will up with tomorrow’s post. Aussies, I will be posting at 1:00pm EST, which is I have no idea what time for you (you’ve got iPhones, you can figure it out). Also, I’ve updated all the sold out camps, and will be posting a new US camp early next week (CF Lindy – aka New York – mid-March).
You’ve been warned,
people of the greatest country/continent on earth Australians—don’t go to sleep this time.
Paul Estrada demonstrating the true “functional” training that has allowed him to Snatch more than all the other exercisers (watch until the end, trust me)…
- 3X3 Snatch from Blocks @ power position – use a heavy “working” weight, rest as needed.
- 3X2 Clean & Jerk from Blocks @ power position – use a heavy “working” weight, rest as needed.
1) HBBS: 1X5@65%, 3X5@75% – rest exactly 2:00.
2a) Front Squat: 4X5@65% – rest 60 sec.
2b) 4X5 Tempo Close Grip Bench Press (3 counts down, pause 3 counts at bottom, fast back up – hands 12″ apart) – heavier than last week, rest 60 sec.
Notes: There are four sets of both FS and BP, these should be performed alternating (as usual with A/B work).
3a) 3XME C2B Strict Supinated Pullups – rest 60 sec.
3b) 3X8 Weighted Strict GH Raise – heavier than last week, rest 60 sec. (no swing, start from a position parallel to the floor) DEMO VIDEO
