  • Bryan

    Any suggestions on % of 1RM might be helpful here on the DLs. I assume they are intended to be unbroken. Thanks!!

    • Michal

      My way:
      58% for set of 15, #easy
      68% for 10, #allright
      84% for 5. #noteasy ;-D

    • Michele Vieux

      Probably around 65%, 75%, 85% but that could differ slightly for each athlete.

    Notes on today’s workout:

    This Part A comes up every few months so hopefully you know how much weight to use each set. Go up in weight for each set on the deadlifts to the max you can safely handle for touch and go reps. It helps to take a few warm-up sets. Usually I’ll do 2-3 warm-ups with 10 reps and make a decision based on how that feels. If you’re looking at percentages, probably around 65%, 75%, 85% but it could be more or less depending on the athlete. Like the ladies who have been training a while can probably do a little more. Whoot!

    For the ring push-ups, lower your rings somewhere between 2″-5″ off the floor and perform them there. Your palms should be facing each other. As you press up, also push your rings inward so that they stay under your shoulders or even slightly inside. It also helps if you keep your feet together and squeeze your thighs together.

    Part B.

    This should take most people in the 12-15 minute range but I suspect we will see some times closer to 9-10 for those speed demons who can do the pull-ups unbroken. If you can’t do them unbroken, stay close to your bar and hop right back up when you come off, even if you are just doing singles. Those heavy lunges should make this interesting…if you can’t quite handle the prescribed weight, choose a very challenging weight to use.

    Thanks Invictus….See you all tomorrow!!

    • Ryan Bliss

      Gotta love walking around like that. Wondering what everyone who sees you is thinking.

    • Michele Vieux

  • jorge gonzalez

    Tomorrow is Murph day at the box and several of us are going to tackle it with all we’ve got so I just did the Session 2 of the Gymnastics program; I’m so excited with these practice sessions, I’m sure these techniques will permeate to the performance wods in a few weeks

  • Phillip

    265, 305, 365 got my 25s and 45s mixed some how should have been 345; 21, 18, 19
    B. 1 round and had a stomach problem 4:25 boooooooo

  • Joey Maltais

    A. Looked at my numbers from Michele’s suggestion (65-75-85%) and felt intimidated since last 2 DLs sessions went pretty bad and I’m having a bad day with a cold. Took it one step at a time and it ended up being the perfect weight to challenge me to the max today but still succeed so thx Michele. Also, didn’t use belt
    225#-24 / 260-18 / 295-15
    Feet on a box about 1ft lower than rings
    B. Subbed pull ups for 10x strict because hand ripped, scaled lunges to 60# dbs. Tough weight but definitely got stronger with BSS cycle. Limiting factor was grip here, hands felt DLs and pull ups I guess. 14:38

  • Jonathan P

    A) 215/34, 245/24, 280/21
    B) 55# db, 14:27

  • Chad Evans

    A. Deadlift
    185 x 15
    225 x 10
    275 x 5
    Getting use to using the harness/strap I made so kept it back a little with the weight. Still challenging though. Did sumo DL because it works a little better with the strap.

    Max rep ring push ups
    35, 22, then the ring strap broke so did max regular push ups: 35

    B. This wasn’t super smooth. Run on treadmill (sucks), 145lb barbell racked on the back and hand wasnt feeling right hooked into pull up bar so subbed supine ring rows in rds 2 and 3.

    13:20
