Tomorrow is the first day of February which means it is time to switch up the skill work. We had a great month working on gymnastics skills. Many people got their first pull-ups! This month we are going to lift 10 tons using only the empty barbell with the focus being olympic lifts. We will break the snatch and clean and jerk down into pieces and work on executing each movement with perfect form. If you are lifting an empty 33# bar you would have to complete 607 lifts. If you come to the gym an average of 5 days a week you would need to execute 30 lifts a day to reach 20,000 pounds, so that is what we are going to do.

This is a five-minute round from which a one-minute break is allowed before repeating. On call of “rotate”, the athletes must move to next station immediately for best score. One point is given for each rep, except on the rower where each calorie is one point.
