MEGA IMPORTANT POST (again). I actually think this one maybe deserves the big intro, but only because it’s time sensitive, and I know you guys won’t actually read it unless I tell you to.
Due to popular demand, we are going to go ahead and make the Outlaw Barbell singlets available to everyone. Now, before you go dry the pee pee from your excitement, there is a catch… To have these ready for our lifters at the AO, they must be ordered TODAY. We are not planning on stocking these, or making more, so for now this will be your only chance to order them.
CLICK HERE TO ORDER OUTLAW BARBELL SINGLETS.
Here’s a few details…
-When you order, please comment (in the comment area, duh) whether you are male or female. Syn is very smart, but if you have a unisex name, you may end up with a boobie area in your singlet.
-These are “Adidas style” in material, design, and fit. They, however, do not have silly stripes on the side.
-Before someone makes a snarky comment, they’re $120. This is EXACTLY what they cost to make. Syn did the design for free, and neither Afro Brutality or Outlaw are making a dime off them.
-In light of that, you should go CHECK OUT THE AFRO BRUTALITY TEAM OUTLAW STORE and order something to thank Syn.
-We do not guarantee PRs every time you wear these, but we do guarantee that someone, somewhere in the world, will PR (or PB) within twenty-four hours of you wearing one… Probably.
1) 4X3 Snatch from Hip @ 70-75% – rest 60-90 sec.

40 OH Walking Lunges (steps) 95/65#
5’8″ 180ish no idea how those fit would you go medium or large?
Probably large, based on this:
Shit. Went to the site to order one but it’s not giving me the option for a large??? Rudy are they gone? Don’t think medium would be to flattering…
Never mind. Syn came back super quick with a reply and got me setup.
How do they fit? I am six foot @ 190 Pounds would i want a large? Lame question i know but im sure everyone else was thinking it but to SCUUURED to ask.
annnnnd is it bad that i get one, even tho i will not be in the AO?
If you wear it out to eat dinner one night you’ll be good!
…it shouldn’t be a fashion faux pas…
Nope, I’m getting one to snorkel in.
Just for clarification, Outlaw Barbell has the squats as 5 sets of 4/8? I assume this is correct, and 4×8/5 is a transcription error?
Check again. Spencer’s blog says that same.
Lol nvm. 5 sets 4/8 seems right.
Nope – the way version is 4 sets of 8/5 reps. I never make errors in transcription 😉
So what’s the final verdict on this?
I did it the way Outlaw BB wrote it; pretty sure (i.e. positive) I wouldn’t have made it through 8 Front Squats.
For the Strength, is it the 1a/1b format or 1, 2 format?
See, I never make errors. It’s fixed.
From the hip, are we to do vertical or high hang? I’m only asking because I recently watched Spencer’s videos on both versions. Thx.
So for those of us that wear weightlifting shoes we either change shoes after each squat set. Or…GASP… jump in WS shoes?!?!?!?! THE HORROR!!!!
+1 my feet have been cringing and cramping thinking about jumping in my Romaleos… Fawk
How long will the singlets be for sale?
From yesterday, my Jerk is ~30# lighter than my Max Clean, do we base numbers off the weaker of the two?
If there’s anyone who happens to read this that is familiar with wrist sprains (resulting from catching a clean poorly), please let me know how f***ing long you had to modify sh*t before you could do things like burpees, cleans, snatches, OHS, push presses, HSPU or generally anything involving your f***ing hands again. I sprained mine on 13 SEP doing heavy hang cleans, caught the bar in my hand (as opposed to where it belongs, on my chest) and snapped my sh*t up. Thanks for any info/experience anyone can provide.
I hit my elbow on my knee on a heavy clean and really jacked my wrist/hand up. Took about 5 weeks before I was able to do anything OH, and another 3 weeks before I was able clean or jerk. Sprains can definitely take a long time to heal.
1. Broke my left wrist at camp on a poorly caught clean (I thought it was sprained, but found out at regionals that I had indeed broke it). So, first off, make sure you didn’t do more than just a sprain, because it could eff your world up for months. (As in failing HSPU on event 6)
2. Sprained my right wrist early September in the same fashion. I am still feeling the effects about 7 weeks later. Honestly, it think its going to be about a solid 10 weeks before I’m back to 100%.
Yup, caught a clean poorly on the 3RM PC’s a couple months ago and am still recovering. Be cautious with it, as soon as I thought I was back to 100% I would injure it again. I don’t know if I hurt it as badly as a sprain/break, but I believe it led to some serious tendonitis so I bought a bike tire tube and have been “voodoo flossing” a few times a day and it has helped a lot. As far as working around it, obviously back squats should be fine but for front squats i would loop a strap around the bar and hold the strap to maintain a rack position. P.S. just cleaned my bar for the first time in ages and apparently having a kilo of chalk/rust on it does not help your rack position in a clean, I have not come close to jamming my wrist since.
Did the same thing on the dip of a jerk trying to use a wider grip. That was 5 weeks ago. I didn’t go heavy for 2 weeks leading up to the Outlaw camp. Felt decent then I went heavy c&j there and jacked it again so yesterday was the first time I clean and jerked in 2 weeks and I just taped it really really tight. Hopefully it will be back to full force in a few more weeks but for now I’ll modify as needed. If I suicide grip the bar in overhead movements as long as it’s not heavy it will feel fine. My workout partner jacked his up 8 months ago and just now went to the doctor and found out he tore ligaments and will have surgery in 9 days. His wrist hurts bending it in all directions.
I guess it depends on where your wrist sprain is located. I got a minor tear in my TFCC (Triangular fibrocartilage Complex); left wrist on the outside. I hurt mine in May during a comp (C&J) and am just back to oly lifting. I feel OK snatching, but still baby it with C&J. As a side note, I am older and don’t recover as quick, and I am trying to learn a lesson on recovery (it’s been a tough lesson).
Would love to get a singlet, however, internet filters out here find the ‘afrobrutality’ in the web address as something that might be inappropriate.

When doing the conditioning do you guys scale the load/reps if needed, put a time cap on the metcon, or do you just gut it out as is, asking because i know in the past rudy has said that conditioning should be kept to around 12 mins, just curious to see what fellow outlaws do.
