Posted: March 24, 2013 by totactfit01 in Uncategorized

Day 53 of the 100-Day Burpee Challenge!



Press – 3 sets of 5 (same weight all three sets)

Add 2.5-5 pounds from what you used on 13Feb (click here for a refresher)


Post weight used to comments/LogWOD

If you look back at your log books, you’ll notice this is the 5th time we’ve done this since December 18th.  Days like these are part of our progressive increase approach for your strength.  Our linear progression.  That is why it is SO important you keep tracking the weights you use and do what we say when we tell you increase the weight you used the last time by the amount we say.  This is how we get you stronger.  If you get to a point where you can’t hit the numbers we put out there for you, it’s time to possibly take a week to dial things back down and let yourself recover so you can come back stronger the next time.

15 minute time cap.

Cash Out:

-Hip Extension on GHD 3×12
-Heel cord mash 2 min per side

Video courtesy of Rogue Fitness.  The key to the hip extension is keeping the torso fully rigid and only moving at the hip.
